Comments: If you haven't heard Greg's story, I can assure you won't be disappointed at this dinner. If you can't make this dinner, I strongly recommend picking up his book. You'll have a great read ahead of you and be supporting an amazing cause at the same time.

Comments: Hey All, I've been trying to figure out the name and rating of a route up here. It is towards the left hand side of the Overhang Area. The first three bolts follow an open book with a finger crack in the back of it. The left face is quite smooth, but the right face has some small edges. It leads to an overhang with a handjam after which it heads to the left to one more bolt and some coldshuts. If anyone knows what this is, I would love the info. Thanks.

If several people suggest grades, a compromise can be made in the middle somewhere. I don't thing AC #2 was trying to be a jerk about it, he was just throwing out his impression of the climb.

Comments: The first time I did this downclimb it seemed a little harder than the 5.1 rating posted here (Class 4 in the guidebooks). Sounds like others had the same problem that I did. The trick is to start heading down the west face at the northern most point. There are a couple of solid stairs to get you around the overhang. Good lesson in route finding.

Comments: Just an additional comment on what was said about the need for long runners. This is extremely important on the last pin before pulling onto the slab. Long story, but I didn't have much of a runner on this one, an the rope drag was deadly. What should have been an couple easy moves felt like I was doing squats at the gym just to get my rope to give a couple of inches. It made for a rather strenuous belay as well. It was a momentary lack of foresight that probably shouldn't have happened, bu... more >>
