Comments: Man. That is one of the craziest route comments I have seen on this site ever. I like the idea of ratings based on how long it takes to climb wide sections.

Comments: The belayer is standing at the base of the climb.

As a guide for many years...

Comments: Top anchor is not rap equipped. You can walk off or rap Aloha, or you could add some links to the top anchor. First pitch is over 30m, so if you want to rap after 1, you need a 70m.

Comments: FA Jim Thornburg 2016. Titanium glue in bolts. So much fun, this is a dream route. The name refers to the other famous Marin 12c, the classic Sex Porpoises on the main rock at Mickeys.

Comments: I will fix a chain draw next time I am out there, easier than moving the bolt

Comments: Go left at the piton. Going right out the roofs is possible but much harder and you need very large gear.


Location: California : Lake Tahoe : Highway 50 Corridor : Lover's Leap : Main Wall : Cheap Shot (5.10a)

Comments: Cheap shot is mostly a plumb line with zero fixed gear. I recall the first pitch of north face having a bolt a pin or two and doing some wacky step right under a roof before turning it. It also had some loose stuff on it. Both are likely mungy. They only start like 15' apart I think.

Comments: 2nd bolt is a tough clip if you are short. A stick clip or a stiff draw is a good idea.

Comments: Everyone cries about that bolt placement but it's in the only spot that had good rock and isn't hollow.

Comments: Those look like the 5/16ths ones (i.e., bigger). I found those very difficult to pull, and have heard similar from others. I've only removed 4 total though, and I had a tuning fork. I remember thinking a 2nd tuning fork would have saved me a lot of time and effort.

Comments: I scrubbed this corner out 3 seasons ago looking for an FA but my dreams were crushed when I found the rusty Lost Arrow. Jay Smith told me he didn't remember leaving a pin but that the old 1986 white guidebook had an accurate drawing of the route, so I figured it was cheap shot once I took a second look.

Route is really quite cool and climbs steeper than it looks on great fingers. There are two scary loose blocks on it that are obvious but easy to climb around. They are a little wedged and I w... more >>

Comments: Wow. Where to even begin. So many transgressions to such a proud route!!!

First, you guys changed the grade on this climb. I listed it as .12a, because it was 12a before some tossers aggressively cleaned the holds into jugs. Way to drag it down to your level chippers! But the fact that my opinion of this climb was changed to .11- without my consent just shows that ethics don't exist on the internet.

Second, a couple guys bolting in bad style which had already been led in good style! And t... more >>

Comments: Fun topo. I bet it changes seasonally though. I was scrambling around out there a few seasons ago and this rock had over 20 fixed heads.

Comments: This page has changed names.

I don't think this climb is Jailbreak, this is in the old guides as a variation to the direct.

Jailbreak is a dirty right hand start variation to the regular .7 surrealistic pillar start. You start in the same spot but instead of traversing left early, you go straight up through a 3' or so right facing flake and into crufty dikes.
