Comments: 4 stars for the chimney to layback pitch. I agree with Andrea that a bolt anchor atop this pitch would be ideal, as the last pitch is only good for the first 30 feet then degrades into loose rock everywhere. Overall a very worthwhile Cannon adventure with great pro on the hard parts.

Comments: The new bolts are especially disappointing because: (1) They start on Tensile Strength and finish on Pins, not following the original line of Tensile Strength. No one would have argued with replacing those old bolts with quality gear, but putting in a new link-up is poor form. (2) The bolting job is not the best. A couple are spinners, a couple are not perpendicular to the rock, and the nuts are suspiciously close to the ends of the studs on others. Also, the anchor below the top is silly given ... more >>

Comments: You can climb it with or without the drill hole, and it is easier if you use it. Whether it is "on" is a matter of personal preference.

There are 2 glue in bolts about 3 feet right of the crack. I am not sure what was going through the head of the person that placed them. The first one needs to be stick clipped (~12 feet up), and the second one can't be clipped until you reach the ledge (~20 feet up), risking groundfall if you fall going for it. And they are out of reach if you are climbing the... more >>

Comments: Last pitch is indeed not obvious to find. It is about 20 feet right of a small tree on the GT ledge, 10 feet left around the corner from three pines anchor, as described above. I also thought this pitch was harder than 5.8, with tricky pro and potential for falling back onto the GT ledge. But super fun anyway!
