Comments: Found a pair of climbing shoes in the upper talus field on 8-18-16. Message me directly with a description of you think they are yours. Please include style and size.

Comments: This route was longer than it looked from the ground. Definitely some quality pebble pulling on the bolted section. Possibly one of the best 5.8's I have climbed.

Comments: This route would get 4 stars if the second pitch was more sustained. It is however, an awesome route!

Comments: The right side of the upper wall seemed to protect better but felt harder...

Comments: Led this today, maybe the rock was bit wet, maybe I was missing something, or maybe I was tired as it was the end of the day but I definitely feel like this climb was harder than your average 5.7. I give it a 5.8, at least.

Comments: If this route has been named anything else by anyone who has already climbed it feel free to suggest a change. Its unnamed in the guide and I thought I would be consistent with the theme of Porkchop buttress.

Comments: Right hand crack, did not use tree, felt more like 5.7. Linked this with Bloody Finger for a great two pitch climb ending on top of the doorway.

Comments: I gave this route a 5.7 rating, because I actually climbed the start of Heavy Weather and bypassed the 5.9 dihedral by going right into the squeeze section formed by the flake. I would not recommend doing this variation as the rope drag was terrible. I would, however, give the beginning of Heavy Weather 2.5 stars!

Comments: Definitely a good test of your nerves and ability to place gear creatively. Fun moves to the top out!

Comments: The gear on this route is a bit tricky. Brass micro offsets and ball nuts were clutch for protecting this route. The movements aren't too difficult but its definitely not an easy lead.

Comments: Pulling onto the ledge just right of the roof felt more difficult than 5.5, my finance was seconding and she traversed over to the arete and said that felt more like 5.5. Definitely fun!

Comments: It would be awesome if you could turn this into a beta photo and outline a topo onto it, it would also be very helpful... Otherwise sweet pic!

Comments: Any ski bum or dirt bag climber would be happy to make that for the winter months, I know I would.
