Comments: Most of this route is just pretty good. But... the 60 meter long flare corner, to stemming, to pulling the roof on hand jams is as good as it gets for the grade. It is shocking that it is as easy as it is. Every so often it starts to get really hard and then you find the hold of your dreams tucked under that flare!

Comments: I added an updated and more clear topo for the route. I replaced a lot of crispy webbing on the way down and added a new rap ring to one of the single ones that looked pretty rough.

This route is quite the adventure and the runouts are quite healthy. Our group of 4 ended up not getting to the last pitch because of time and wanting to get down and out in a reasonable time. I highly recommend a single 70 meter for the descent. Oh, also don't be like me and forget all the #2 pieces for the... more >>

Comments: I agree that the 20th pitch felt like solid 5.11. Some inconsistency in the grades, but nothing really drastic. The 12a pitch is a very physical pitch even with the french free variation.

We linked the following pitches easily:
1&2
3&4
5&6
10&11
12,13,&14 (w/ a small amount of simul climbing on a 70 m rope)
17&18 (most strenuous of the ones we linked)

That made for a total of 16 pitches. We got it done with 18 quickdraws and 8 or so alpine draws. 10 hours up, 4 hours down - simul-rappellin... more >>

Comments: After two years of climbing experience, this route blew up my perspective of what I can achieve. What an amazing day! If you are even just kind of entertaining the idea, don't hesitate - get to the Bugaboos.

The "solo/simul" climbing to the col seems to be hit or miss for some parties. My partner and I simul-climbed to the col in what would have been 3 or 4 pitches. Very easy climbing but happy to have the gear in. The route itself is well described and hard to miss. I think we traversed ... more >>

Comments: I brought 4 purple linking cams which were super handy. Didn't bring the #3 Camalot. Could have left the #2 Camalot also. Basically quadruple up in the 0.3 - 0.5 range as other people are suggesting.

We made it to the ground (from the top of the 5.5 finish) in two double 60 meter raps. Such a fun route. Must do.

Comments: Agreed, definitely bring a #3 BD stopper to protect the first toughest move. Otherwise you would have a ledge fall / tumble to the lake on a fall. The rest of the route is fun but as all "sport" climbs here very run out. I climbed it on doubles and clipped two lower pieces of mank (not mentioned above - maybe worse than the one below the belay) on the right rope. I don't think any of these older bolts would hold a fall anymore. And yes, it is just about 170 feet with 4 bolts and one @... more >>

Comments: We passed a slower party just after the finger today by climbing far right almost into the Conn dike (terrible climbing) and then straight up from there (amazing). The party was starting the last pitch when we hit clean granite again. We were about 30 feet right of the normal route they were on. We split it into two pitches. First was to the right of a big block and then zigzagged beautiful cracks. The second had two roofs with multiple options around or through both.

Anyone ever do this variat... more >>
