Comments: This route is very clean now and very fun. Two double length slings make for a nice anchor if setting up a toprope for frineds. I think a yellow Camalot would be better between the first and second bolts -eh take both and see what works best for you. Now about that anchor....

Comments: I lead Five Finger Discount before leading Lunchmoney, and I do think Five finger discount required a tad more thinking, commitment above the bolts (last two), and balance.

Comments: A tad more difficult than Lunchmoney, which requires a little bit of muscle. More balance than brawn will get you through the crux up high - last two bolts.

Comments: In my opinion, the moves heading right around the "roof" is not the crux, but instead the slab up higher. Not as difficult as Jellicle Cats. I did not note any loose rock.

Comments: I think this has a very fun crux with a few different ways through it. A very different crux then say MacCavity or Jellicle Cats.

Comments: Climbed it today in one long pitch. I used a 70m 9.2 rope (read strechy) and it got me down to the ledge just off the ground. Had to do 4 feet of "down climbing." I would put the first crux at 10a. I have done lots of slab all over the country including pure friction in North Carolina at Sone Mountain. Comparing, I think there are a couple of 10a moves after you clip the first bolt from the top of Gumby Cat.

Comments: Is there a projected date of when it will be open to climbing? I am really looking forward to climbing there since I have never been there.

Comments: Soloed up just past the third step today. Thick ice the entire way. I even found the rap tree on my way down - slings and rap ring are in good shape.

Comments: Hi Stewart,

Nope, that is not the route. It for sure only has 4 bolts. Thank you though. That picture is of the entire route - sorry it was not better.

Comments: Posted a picture of a route that I am looking for information on. I would like to add it, but I don't know anything about it. It is towards the right end of the wall. Easy climbing past two bolts to a crux at the third bolt - a 5.9ish slab move to gain a ledge. This move is harder for shorter people like me. Then another bolt just above a short corner which can be protected with a small nut/cam if you like. The anchor seems to be shared with another bolted route to the right which starts on to... more >>

Comments: Anyone know what the bolted route is to the right of Pack O Bob's. A low crux (5.8ish) at the second bolt to gain a short slab and then a fun jug haul. There are two blocks sitting on the ledge at the top where the anchor is. I would like to add the route to the database.

Grade?

Name?

Thank you,
