Comments: Establishing into the upper crack is fuggin hard for us shorter guys, not to mention I was a little bit spooked about the shitty micro cam below me, halfway up the crack my tape peeled off my left hand as I jammed into some sharp crystals, Ill be damned if I fall out of an 11a handcrack! I gritted my teeth and torqued my hand anyway, blood was running down my arm as I let out a nice yip and howl at the top! What a great line!

Comments: Did this yesterday in 10 hours, super cool route, the traverses got kind of old but what gives? Honestly thought the rock was pretty damn good most of the time with only a few small sections of chossy garbage.

There are a few spots where bolt placement left me scratching my head, a few bolts that invariably position the biners in a crossloading situation, and a grip too many slammed into the summit blocks, which may or may not have been the FA party.

Comments: The best way to access the Cirque is the Jacobs Ladder approach from Alpine . The approach is around 2-4 hours depending on fitness level and is pretty strenuous. It is key to go light for this one, and bring plenty of water for the hike and food for the stay . Water can be found in the form of snowpack run off, and because of the high snowpack this year will probably be running from late June through the end of August.

Camping is easy, just find a flat spot among the boulders and call it home.... more >>

Comments: Climb the second pitch! its solid! bring 2 #5 Camalots or a #5 and #6, you can also climb it in the style of the FA and run out the offwidth section off the Crescent Crack anchors for 15 or 20 feet.

Comments: go straight up past bolt 4 instead of traversing left for a good spicy variation.

Comments: if the weather holds out this is on the list for tomorrow. No there are still the two bolts at the base of the ramp, none above it though.

Comments: excellent route! The move after the micronut is spicy~
You can protect the 12+ foot runout Bheller talks about with a micro nut , its not awesome, but adequate.
