Comments: Awesome and memorable climbing with many elements on this one. Everything seemed solid enough to climb on to me. Consistent with two defined cruxes. Very dramatic and exposed finish. Trevor did a professional job with the cleaning and prepping.

Comments: ^Echo, Lookout Mountain Crag has a few. Other than that, not much for easily accessible topropes. I suppose you could set a few shorties from the Queen City Slab ledge at Highwire. I know of plenty not-so-straightforward ones, but I would not recommend them due to risk to climbers below.

Comments: The top 30' or so most likely has been climbed before as a variation to Book of Wasps, though climbing from the fixed belay of EoA is probably new terrain. At any rate, it needed to be documented.

I definitely recommend the link-up with the Edge first pitch for a nice long lead.

Comments: I added a first pitch, so now this route climbs over 200 ft, starting from almost the bottom of the canyon. Description edit above.

Comments: Excellent and overlooked. High quality stone in the bolted approach bits and an intimidating crux up high where the feetholds run out. Next time I'd bring: a medium nut or small cam followed by 1ea C4s#.3-#2.

Comments: The opening slab of Railway Runaway makes for a nice alternate start. After the 3rd bolt head up to the corner of Twist. Additional pro in the horizontal.
