Comments: There is no way this is a V3. Especially when comparing this to the V3s in the boulderfield. Hard 5.9 moves lead to easier climbing. Backing off is quite easy.

Comments: It is definitely the crux of the route and imo more like 5.9. Gotta love the "+" ratings in NC. You make a difficult move to a somewhat hidden jug to the right of the dihedral, at least that's how i do it.

Comments: Looks like you missed the crux of the route. You should be in the black right facing dihedral... by the looks of it you went you about 5-7ft left of this.

Comments: Not a new breed of crying... the new breed is people wanting to make routes more accessible to the masses with zero barrier to entry. Everything is not supposed to be easy and tamed down so that everyone can do it. Climbing is a process that we all go through and there should be routes that inspire people to get better. Your argument insinuates that all routes should have a middle anchor above the easier climbing; is this a new standard that we should put in place on every climb? Did y... more >>

Comments: Nathan,

You have the route right. we replaced the first manky bolt and the pin with just one bolt. Either way the route required a stick clip so we figured it made more sense just to move the bolt up a bit and get rid of the junk pin. The route going out right is Aries. Its seth's route.

Comments: Haven't been up there recently but are these new bolts within arm's length of Crackin' Up?

Comments: The middle anchors are an abomination to rock climbing and should be removed. The chains dangling all over the place were bad enough but this is a new breed of retro bolting that has been cropping up at Pilot.

Comments: The bolts were perfectly safe and not very hard to clean. There is no reason for the permadraws.

Comments: Definitely another north end classic. Certainly under appreciated. While not as sustained as filet it does contain a more defined and perhaps more difficult crux and the same great gear trickery.
