Does anyone know if this is the 5.10X trad route in Toula's old guide called Sporte? Sep 15, 2006

The first bolt of this climb might need to be replaced soon. Not only is the hanger spinning, but the bolt itself is loose in its hole. The crux of this climb could seem hard if you're trying to pull through on brute strength, but with careful footwork its not too bad. Dec 11, 2007

New anchors should be finished by this afternoon, with good chains. Thanks to Stan Mish for the use of his hand drill ( he also offered up some ole "no gud" hangers but I didn't want to scare the kiddos!) and to Chris T. for saving the day with a power drill. Who knew hand drilling in limestone could be such a pain in the ass. Enjoy Jul 15, 2008

Dean, chains are great and thank you for your community service. If you prefer I'll donate a set of MussyHooks™ for the top.

Nice work by Dean and Chris Tatum to get new anchors put up on this route. Now it has two bolts with chains on the top out ledge. Jul 17, 2008

Just a "heads up" literally, about halfway up this route is a block around the size of the old block on Mordor with significant fracture lines almost all the way around it. I know, I know True Value has looked like that for year, but might be good to try and avoid this. Mar 11, 2009

Good mid-10 climbing until one move near the last or second to last bolt (it's been a couple of weeks since climbing it) unless you are tall. Seemed a tad easier than Mordor to the left. Aug 13, 2011

Chalk goes to the right near the end. the easy on route finish is a side pull to the left left of the bolt. Feb 23, 2013

Huge bird nest at the last bolt but maybe old. If I recall at the top is like a big round rock ball with a few good underclings. Great kneebar there too. Ended up going left a little, high right foot on the ball and grabbing a right hand side pull. Fun. Sep 16, 2015

Sporte is one of my favorite routes around Flagstaff. The crux is up high and goes around 11a on-sight, but once you know the moves and can manage your pump, it falls into the 10 range Jul 31, 2016
