Comments: A full value adventure up a monster, secluded face with varied climbing and incredible exposure. Not to be missed.

Comments: Hey guys, I posted a photo I have from a few years ago on this boulder (SE Arete) before all the relevant cruxes, but just to hopefully inspire people to send this thing. That's nuts that it gets into the V10 range up top! Keep working it Conor and Doug - it'll be a really cool problem!

Sam - feel free to take the initiative on databasing the other routes on this thing. From what I understand most of em don't have names - though Doug would probably know better than I. Definitely some cool s... more >>

Comments: If by treasure you mean little protection, waterfalls, moss, and loose rock - then yes. Plenty of treasure.

Comments: I'm really surprised people rappel from the big ledge on this route. The final pitch up to the saddle was one of the best pitches of climbing with excellent position, the whole wall is below you! I would recommend the saddle descent - it's fine with just a bit of low exposure down-climbing.

Also, no matter how much you've dealt with exposure in the past, climbing out on that traverse will have you thinking about taking up golf. An unbelievable pitch! :D

Comments: Super Classic! Every single pitch is great, with varied climbing that follows an aesthetic and unique line. Pitches 3, 4, and 6 stand out in my mind - but all the pitches are great. Certainly not to be missed!

Pitch 4 and 5 (as described above) can be linked with a 60m rope if you take the chimney option through the "birth canal" - which seems to be the obvious choice.

Comments: 70m gets you to the ground from the top anchors (just barely).

Comments: Really one of the best pitches around. Worth all the hype. The bolts are placed well for the majority of this climb, with one run-out on relatively easy terrain (between the 2nd and 3rd bolt?). It would be easy to protect this section with a nut or TCU, but if you are attempting this grade it shouldn't be a problem. I remember bringing gear but not bothering to place it because the climbing in the run-out was easy.

However, Peter Croft thought a rope was unnecessary, so I guess it's all p... more >>

Comments: This route can be done in 2 pitches with a 60m. rope. Just be mindful of rope drag when linking p1 and part of p2 (place low, then high). There is a nice belay stance in the middle of p2 that will leave you with 2 feet of spare rope for the final pitch. Great line!

Comments: It's such a long pitch! Never lets up either. Excellent climbing on great rock, bring lots of gear!

Comments: Thanks dudes! I blame the fall on Travis - just praying that I would fall so he could catch the pic of the whipper.

Comments: What a fantastic summit that was - and to get the FWA on such a classic line. Little known fact, Patent Pending actually goes at 5.8 C0 when it's below zero and you've had a PBR or two.

Comments: As I understand it, this was first done as a two pitch route. Anyone have beta on P2? Are there anchors up top? Does the rock stay good? Grade? Gear? Thanks!

Comments: This is the Whiskey A Go Go of moderate routes - excellent climbing, exposure, and view. Definitely one of Necedah's best routes.

Comments: Did some holds break or get bigger on this route?? This used to be the hardest route on the wall for me. 12a/b?? That Travis guy is just Mr. Sandbag these days - what a jerk.

Comments: There is only one real place for protection on this route (obvious thin crack for #1 and 2 TCUs and nuts), so sew this up and then run it to the chains. If you didn't place gear high in this crack (like me) there is a funky #3 C4 up high.

I gave this a PG-13 as the run-outs between gear get long (and I am a wuss).

Comments: This route has more history than it should: The local speed climb testpiece, the only Meader Wall route known to see a winter ascent (winter ascents only count if it's below zero degrees F) and the only known naked ascent of the wall.

Speed Record History (set on toprope, start behind the log, finish when the chains are slapped):
