Comments: I you want to TR it, the approach from the back is reasonable, you'll need some long slings.

Comments: "I ask that these be removed, leaving only the hangars."

The subsequent comments seem to be extremely disrespectful to one of the FA team.

I don't climb very hard anymore, and never climbed 12+, but surely shouldn't the route be climbed in the original style? Isn't it cheating to do otherwise?

Comments: Crocker is on the left, and the west ridge is its right skyline - there's then a horn, the West Ridge route passes this horn on its right, via a gully through the headwall.

Comments: Slabs on the crest would be better when there's no snow cover.

Comments: The two prominent gendarmes on the North Ridge near the summit can be seen. The climb starts right above the person by heading up talus then left along the tree covered ridge.

Comments: I saw this yesterday - very very sad to see the tree lying on the ground, and if as you say someone pushed it over just to get to a boulder problem, that is the wrong precedence to set, as living things are more important than our egos. The whole area seems a little barren and depressing now. If the poor tree has to go I would suggest cutting it up for firewood, including the stump, as that's an ankle roller for the Mozart's Traverse.

Comments: Seems like some pruning might be in order - but not cutting it down.
