Comments: I highly recommend adding all of the threads from Pass the Pitons Pete to this section. He has written up some great articles around various topics.

Comments: I would remove the R rating and even the PG13 for the confident 5.10 leader. The crux areas are protected well and the gear is all available when you need it. Don't let the rating scare you off, this is a great long pitch of climbing.

Comments: Thanks to the Eldo Action folks. The gully up to Shirt Tail has had huge improvements over the past year and will hopefully continue again this summer. Near the top of the gully as approaching climbs such as Gambit two new ladders have been placed to help with safety and to ease the scramble across loose rock.

Thanks guys.

Comments: Climbed the Crypt today, Jan 9th, 2010. The slings at the top have been upgraded to having two rap rings and an extra piece of cord or two. Should be good to go for a while.
