Comments: Larry has a good point; when did this go from "Dirty Deed" to "Ytrid Deed" and why?

Comments: The summit anchor (slings around a tree) were somewhat lacking today (May 18, 2008). Only two 1" slings with no rings or quicklink. Bring a new quicklink with you, and you can keep the leaver I left behind.

Comments: Ken, we added at least one bolt to each belay station at your suggestion. They were "good" bolts for the time (1982; 3/8" Star drives with Leeper hangers).

Comments: William, the description of the first pitch in the above write-up sums it up well. We found it pretty easily, without having read this description first. Scramble up the gully on the left side of the prow. A few hundred feet up the gully, a sloping ledge leads out to the right (south). A few tens of feet out to the right on this ledge, there is a big flake with a wide crack behind its left side. This steep portion is about 20-25 feet tall. Climbing the flake provides access to the prow.

Comments: I'm pretty sure the FA was by Eric Winkelman and Ken Trout, mid '80s.

Comments: Fun route in a nice setting. Two stars for sure. Didn't need any supplemental pro; the bolts seemed well placed and not too far apart. It's relatively easy to avoid the obvious loose flake near the eighth bolt. The crux of the climb may be getting your shoes on in the sloping, wet ferns just above the creek. Be careful not to let your pack roll in.

Comments: The second set of anchors farther up the ridge that Tony mentions in his Mountaineer's Route description is probably at the top of a west-facing route called Auspice (.11c?), established by Dan Michael in 1987. We used this anchor when establishing Thought Control. The lower anchor for Thought Control was added later. The route was bolted ground up using a hook to get stable enough to hand drill.
