Comments: I think the reason it was bolted was to protect the somewhat delicate nature of the flake. If you fall and pull the flake down there are going to be several angry locals after your head for ruining one of the best climbs in the area.

Comments: Thanks for doing that Joe. That downclimb is indeed rather dangerous.

Comments: Awesome climb in an awesome setting! Expect a long day and try to pack light. I brought .5-1 c4's and a half rack of nuts and it felt ample. We simuled the whole climb and it took around an hour and a bit to go from Wall Street to the summit. Can be climbed with a 60 meter rope if care is taken on the last rappel to go to skiers left and not down the crack.

For map nerds here is a GPX file of the approach and climb that can be imported into most GPSs. There is some multipathing in areas so... more >>

Comments: @Matt Depends on what guidebook you have. 5.10a in Kyle's and 5.8 in Dockins.

Comments: I'd be careful about snow levels. In years past the #1 or #2 placement is the only thing protecting you and your climber from being pulled down the snow field in case of a leader fall before the first bolt on the first pitch. From what I remember this part did not take a great nut placement. This would surely be VERY bad if not fatal as it is rather steep and you would hit the rocks below with some speed. If the snow is high enough to clip a bolt right off the ground then the gea... more >>

Comments: The start of Cold Forged Steel can be seen easily in this photo directly above the black patch in the snow in the lower left hand corner.

Comments: Don't trust that book. Dockins book is way more accurate on route information.

Comments: @Jason Todd. Fixed it. This is for sure a grade III. With the approach it is a full day if moving slowly.

Comments: Those moves are some of the only fun moves out on the highway. And they still aren't great.

Comments: Does this still have the comically large ring as the single anchor?

Comments: One of my first trad leads over a decade ago.... Bring slings or even on this short route you can get debilitating rope drag (as I discovered).

Comments: Made a little video of this climb if anyone is interested.

Freaking sweet climb. So many cracks to choose from. Had several distinct styles though! I found myself pure jamming one pitch and delicate almost face climbing the next.

Comments: I've noticed an abundance of bail gear after the second pitch as of late. I have picked up two bail anchors in this very early season alone. It very well could be that the left route has gotten harder as a LARGE chunk has fallen out over the winter. I personally always finish on the far superior (IMO) 5.9 to the right. I would like to tell everyone that there is a bolted anchor down to the right (Sort of near the little scrub tree) at the top of Generation X that will get you to ledges that ... more >>

Comments: I'm pretty sure Rock Climbs of Southwest Montana is wrong. It would be the softest 10c in Montana. Bozeman Rock Climbs lists this climb as 10a and I have to agree that it is more along those lines.

Comments: Fantastic route. Here is a video of a Northern Lights employee soloing it if you want an idea of what the route is like.
