Often overlooked 5 pitch, mixed face and crack route (mostly continuous steep slab climbing on the face just right of the Moratorium). Beautiful Climb! May 23, 2010
Wow, I was just looking over at this beauty a couple days ago. Polished golden granite...bolts don't look horribly far anything more to add on this one? May 23, 2010

Rob-If you like steep slab it does not get any better. I have been on it and found every pitch unique, hard on fantastic granite. I believe the topo is in the last Yosemite guide.

I did find a few sections to be a little stretched out- right at my comfort zone. But nowhere did it seem unsafe to me.

There is a pin protecting the 10c crux on the 1st pitch that had me a little worried but it did look sound. I wish a bolt had been placed there instead. May 25, 2010

Thanks for posting this Keith. I was looking at this and 'Golden Years' in my Reid guide and was thinking about giving them a go. I do have a question though. What generation are the bolts on this thing? I believe 'Burden' went up in 1990 which means it could have reasonable or sorta sketchy hardware (i.e. is it old school SMC stuff or...)
Any info you have would be welcome.

EDIT: Thanks for the reply Keith!! Feb 23, 2011

Just got your question J. Albers. Both routes have Metolius Bolt hangers. They also have 3/8 inch, with what look like, expansion bolts - wedge anchor type because they have nuts. I felt very safe with the anchoring. Well thought out belay locations too. Jul 9, 2011
