There is some confusion here between Compound W and the Compound W Variation. The "Variation" is actually a completely separate climb. The original Compound W climbed to a tree anchor that was above the leftward anchor. The anchor on the left is where the good climbing ends and is the closest to the original line.

The Variation was led from the ground up from below the rightward small roof section and the anchor placed decades after the original Compound W was established. Essentially, they are 2 distinct climbs. If you have fun combining them, awesome, but one would be safer climbing them as 2 separate lines. Aug 7, 2016

This is a fun little route and I agree that it deserves more traffic. The work put in to keep it clean is appreciated. It does seem to collect debris pretty quickly. As of 8/6/16, it is still in good shape.

I take a single rack to #2 plus a few nuts for this one. You can easily get away with leaving the #2 behind, but there are two nice placements for it if you have it with you. Aug 6, 2016
Cleaned of (most) blackberries, mud, and moss. Deserves more traffic. Jul 2, 2016
