Comments: The .12 A0 pitch should go free at mid .13. It's a really good and wild pitch. The sad thing is, besides the lack of a right foot, is that a key right hand is going to break off the next time someone try's to free it.

Comments: Nice job, Matt. I have climbed this on TR, and it has some really fun climbing on it. Falling would not be a good idea.

Comments: I climbed this again. I don't think it's as scary as I made it sound. I used 4 gear placements, and you can double up at 3 of them.

Comments: All routes will be open. We just don't want anybody near the anchors or climbing up to the anchors. The Bastille should be fine, but don't climb the choss on the Wind Tower side below the anchor (don't top out).

Comments: UPDATE:

There is a little bit of confusion regarding the event ticket and the park entrance fee. The event ticket will get you into the park if you take the shuttle, walk, bike, or park outside of the park. If you wish to drive into the park, normal park fees apply. We are truly sorry for the confusion.

Comments: If you buy a ticket, you can get into the park without any additional fee. You can buy a ticket before the event or at the entrance on the day of the event.

We have a bunch of swag to give away!

Here is the story that CPR did last year.

Comments: It's a little run out from the second bolt to the 3rd bolt. It's easy, but I think I will add a bolt there. I also plan on adding a bolt to replace the nut at the top. Once you figure out all of the beta, this route is super fun and enjoyable.

Comments: Thank's for updating that anchor, Noah, it looks a lot better than the last time I used it. I would still be worried about belaying off that first pitch anchor though. The nut is in a block that looks nasty, and the pin is well...old. If you still have the juice, you can climb though the next roof and belay at the next stance out right. It has much better gear for an anchor.

You can get an RP at the pitch 3 second roof crux, above the current pin. It's a ... more >>

Comments: We climbed the first 3 pitches of Canus into White Buffalo. That seemed like the way to do it - every pitch was mouthwatering! Who does not want to climb a mega corner into a short OW into 300+ft of fingers and hands?! Seriously, this route was great. If you cant climb the traverse pitch it's well worth it to pull on the bolts to access the crack above.

The direct finish can go free at what felt like 5.11 climbing. It looks intimidating, which is why I chose to take the... more >>

Comments: I got on this route not knowing I needed gear. I'm not sure if having gear would make me feel any better. That flake might expand. I vote for a bolt. Fun route.

Comments: Dave, if your intent was to remove the anchor, you should have removed the entire thing. Leaving a SS stud and a crap bolt does not seem any better, and I can't imagine the landowner thinking any different. It is also pretty easy for someone to put the hanger back. It's a little unclear from your comment on why you did this, but I am in favor of not having an anchor here. I would just prefer the entire anchor to be completely removed.

Comments: We got off route for pitch 3 and 4, but we were still able to make it to the corner. We went off to the right a bit after pitch 2, into a long hand crack and then traversed into the corner. It was a fun adventure but a little rusty.

We just soloed pitch 10. It's exposed but easy.

Pitch 11 and 12 can be linked, as stated, but there was a lot of drag. I would link it if you were concerned about daylight.

Comments: If you click on the desired application name (above "view votes"), a PDF will open up. There is a lot of information in those PDFs, but you are encouraged to climb the route yourself.

Comments: I climbed up and left a little and placed two microcams before getting onto the face. Perhaps I should have watched Matt's video or read Steve's description. I didn't use the sling or find the #2 placement Regardless of how you "protect" yourself, it is unadvised to fall. Stellar route!

Comments: The idea is to replace the bolts before they become unsafe. 1/2" SS will last much longer then the plated steel that makes up most of these bolts. I'm glad that there is a team willing to replace these bolts rather than wait until they become unsafe.

Edit: the idea of "why fix it if it is not broken" does not apply when you are dealing with safety and human life.

Comments: I thought the finger pitch was 12b, but it depends on the size of your fingers. My fingers are average I guess, 0.4 is a good lock for me.

The traverse pitch into the finger crack felt to be around 12c. Clip the first two bolts, and then downclimb a little before you traverse. Skip the last bolt. Once you get to the anchor, clip the last bolt for your second.

Comments: This is a really fun line. Thanks to everyone that put in the effort to make this a climb, free and aid. We decided to climb the route knowing that the last pitch was wet. You can get a good look at the whole route from the top if you walk down far enough The last belay is under the roof out from under the waterfall, but once you start climbing, it's a full on swim to the summit. It was a mix of free, aid and French free to get up that pitch. In retrospect, I would not climb it wet, holy fuck wa... more >>
