Description

This route is a variation to Peer Review, taking an alternate line through the first roof. Do the first pitch of Peer Review and continue up the left hand line of bolts staying right of the arete. Long slings in a couple of places or unclipping some bolts will be necessary to avoid rope drag on this long pitch. A 60m rope will reach to the ledge. I'm not sure if anyone has done the right hand variation yet. The hardest part of that was after the roof, being able to move up. Enjoy!

Protection

16 quicks & a few long slings to ease rope drag.

At 5'6", the actual technical crux for me was the crux of the "12b"--it took me a bit to sort the feet and order in which I need to bring the feet and hands up, but rest assured, shorties, that if you stick with it you •will• find a workable sequence that is even pretty pleasant.

From there, it's pump management with some power-endurance sequences moving up the arete/roof feature above the first belay to a decided redpoint crux. Recommend long draws here and there for sure so you don't have rope drag on the final roof; would be a heartbreaker to have the rope pull you off backward going for the chains on the "5.11" finish!

Great extension to Peer Review! The crux is the moves right off the the anchors of Peer Review which leads into some bouldery slapping up the arete. I skipped both the bolt in the first roof and at the lip, which would have been a fairly sizeable whip right in the middle of the crux. The next 3 bolts I hung long runners and had absolutely no rope drag pulling the final roof. I also had a long runner at the anchors of the 12b. Exciting and airy Feb 15, 2013

Really good route. I thought the bottom 12b was my favorite in the canyon. This extension only adds value. Anyone out there to confirm the 13a grade? It felt easier than at least one 12d I have done. But that was 9 months ago and I could be stronger now. Thoughts? Feb 19, 2010
