|Is staying on the pillar contrived or does stemming make the route harder? If you can easily stem to other good holds and it keeps the route in the grade or makes it easier then stem, otherwise it is contrived and does not deserve 4 stars. Get your second to clean off the loose flakes next time.|

|Stayin on the column isn't contrived. The holds on the climb force you to traverse left/right on the column several times. Getting into the cracks next to the climb could be trouble because you wouldn't be able to reach the bolts, and getting back to them will wear you out. Best to stick to what you have in front of you. Hardest .10 I've done in Wyoming.|

It is a bit easy to stay in the OW at the beginning (on the right side of the pillar), but was very happy I got on the face after the second bolt.
Exciting face moves and strenuous mantles!
I'd also swear there were around 14-15 bolts. I could also be crazy.

|Super fun, technical climb. It'll remind you that you can climb on super tiny holds, or no holds at all. Also, you can place a .75 or #1 camalot in a horizontal crack between the 11th and 12th bolts. If you're short and can't reach the 12th bolt from the good stance, you'll be glad if you had placed that cam.|

|What an absolute pleasure to climb, although I cheated and stemmed out a couple times. 5.10b my ass! This is a stout 5.10 face climb with strenuous, delicate moves. It seems to go on forever. If you're not comfortable soloing 5.6 or so to get to the first bolt, bring some wide gear for the offwidth. It took longer than I expected.|

|Climb this route as a link up with Wiessner. climbed the wide crack the whole way up to the Durrance rap bolts, then up the corner crack to the belay bolts. Stout wide crack over there but if your into that sort of thing its pretty rad, grade still felt like 5.10 OW, could be done on gear but it have to be big bro's and #6's. Didn't have a guide book so I was just going for what looked cool, ended up climbing a pretty sweet final direct pitch after the meadows with some fun roof moves.|
