Leslie Smith on "Like Old Times," 5.8

Private Property MORE INFO >>>


Layback and stem up the left-facing chimney/corner to a ledge. Chimney up to a steep crack that ends on the same ledge as Hard Times.

Ed is going to clean this a bit more, but pretty good as-is and the easiest warm-up in the area. Likely to become popular.


7 bolts to the same anchor as Hard Times. First bolt is a stainless glue-in, the rest 1/2 inch stainless rawl bolts.

Nice job Ed, (& the team)! Love this route! The layback at the bottom and chimney higher up, remind me of some or the pitches we did in the valley this fall! Fun climbing and great warm up!

Have your belayer be very aware when climbing this route, there is a good amount of hollow/loose/brittle rock on the first 2/3's of this climb. I was belaying someone on it and could hear many pieces of rock falling in the chimney. Just something to keep in mind.

Ed recently did a bunch more cleaning in the chimney, so stuff shouldn't be raining down unless the leader is going unnecessarily deep. It was looking well buffed up as of last weekend.
