Comments: The 2 bolts of the 5.8/5.9 variation face pitch below the Beckey Tree were even sketchier! Surprised they're still on the wall.

Comments: The 5th (last) piton in the 4th pitch corner is now gone. The 4th pin held after I ripped the 5th and the other ones below it looked pretty solid too.

Comments: This climb is pretty sick. The approach is easy, the burly climbing is north facing (first 4 pitches), the position is cool with some fantastic views to boot, plus the belays are all comfortable. The rack is spot on, maybe add a green C3, but that's it. Get on it!

Comments: The "blunt" (Flake jutting out) halfway up the route is now gone. I got lucky I didn't yard on it on lead or it could have been ugly! Maybe bring an extra hand piece now. The grade seems like it'll stay about the same, but the new section could now use a brushing.

Comments: I found this one more mentally and technically demanding than some of the 12- 's at the Waterfall. Bring your game for the crux, it's no cake walk. The gear is all there, just thin.
