Comments: George, there are at least two routes on this face and the East Ridge(right skyline) as well. Cheers, TYeary

Comments: Doak, your comments are right on and I have amended the description above. Thanks so much!. Tony
Edit, Three of those killed on Huascaran in '02 were friends of mine. Conditions are such, now days, that later in the season can provide better snow conditions, especially if it's a NON El Nino year.

Really? You probably want to think this one through. Fun climb anyway!

Comments: Thanks Wayne, for keeping me honest! Don't know what happened with the route lenght value! I thought when done as a traverse, it was a great outing. True, there generally are no technical difficulties, but it is beautiful with great views, and it provides the needed acclimatization . I would say two stars for sure!

Comments: The climber is just below the small rock buttress on the East Ridge. The summit, mixed snow and rock, can be seen up and to the left.

Comments: Not to be rude, but I think this route is thiner and harder than Edger Sanction at 10a. Not as sustained, but way thiner. 10c/d is about right,IMO. I lead this back before there were two bolts on the route. A real attention graber! Even with the two bolts, it's still a rush.

Comments: Nice, Wayne.
Say, your hair looking a bit silver there. Must be the digital camera settings, eh? All kidding aside, the route looks great! I'm tipping a Gin and Tonic right now.
Cheers, Tony

Comments: I just did this route on 3-8. I'd done it several times before, but not in the last 20 years. It does seem to have gotten a bit smoother over the years. For me the crux is between the 4 and 5th bolt. The pull over the 1st bolt is thin and sharp but it's all there and just takes some grunting. I guess it's the style crux above that taxes my aging body!
5.11a....I don't know about that. I've done a lot of 11a's that seemed harder. 10d seems about right. Count Dracula, next door, seems harder, for ... more >>

Comments: This guy's been operating this stand for 15 years. I've been eating burgers there for 8 years and I'm still not quite sure what a "sex burger" is. I guess at this point it doesn't matter much. They are great though!

Comments: Great route. A bit run out but not horrific. I thought the crux, for me, is the pull past the first bolt. After that it's text book JT friction and edges. It will keep your attention!

Comments: Rick Graham and I did this route on 3-2-08. First time climbing with Rick in 28 years and last time I climbed Heart and Sole was 15 years ago. Nice to revisit old friends and climbs. Great fun. Nice lead Rick. Just like the old days(almost)! The climb was as I remembered. Always interesting, never really hard, and most of all, fun.

Comments: Just did this route again for the first time in 10 or 15 years. What a great line. I forgot how much fun it is! I'd give 4 out 5 stars. 5.9-10a. Not "R" though.
