Comments: Pretty sure this has 7 bolts after re-engineering a few years ago. No longer too scary!

Comments: Pretty much no one goes the original 11c way, which avoids the leftward jug traverse via a silly boulder problem. The traverse makes this makes the route a decent warm-up at maybe 11a.

Comments: This sounds like the existing 5.8, "Beyond and Back". I don't think it gets done much, and may well feel like an FA!

Comments: I noticed some unenlightened individual took the grey painted lowering biners from the anchor. Lame. Hopefully a time will come when people understand the concept of fixed gear!

Comments: Tony, that's a pretty funny comment about "poorly protected sandbags" getting extra stars! The only explanation I can think of is these routes are the ones you work a bit harder for and remember more than more pedestrian outings.It seems the same phenomenon exists for hard routes that seem to get lots of stars. I sent a friend up on Catwalk yesterday and he hated it because it was scary! To each his own I guess.

Comments: This is an amazing line in it's upper pitches, but it's hard to tell where this starts from the topo - Looks like its just l. of the Mountaineers, which is where "Chasing the Dragon" is. A better topo or photo-topo would be great. R.I.P. Justin.

Comments: P-3 involves a flared crack, which has a very sketchy thin flake in the back that's ready to come out. (I jumped off when the flake started to peel off and ripped two c3's) I'd advise avoiding this pitch until it gets cleaned out or a bolt is added to allow climbing without using the loose flake, which would likely direct-hit the belayer.


Location: Idaho : Castle Rocks : Castle Rock : Castle Rock - South Face : Tiny Time (5.4 X)

Comments: I'm not sure if this line is distinct enough from the already densely packed routes to qualify as a named route. I wonder if this 5.4X "route" ever be repeated.

Comments: haha. Josh - I did give it 3 stars in the old book, so I liked it too! Can't wait to go for a review, probably get my butt kicked!

Comments: err, yeah, truth be told, I meant to move the anchor down a bit to avoid the horrible final slab moves. I'd recommend bailing at the last bolt - it's still solid 12a to there! I don't recall moving too much out of the bolt line though...

Comments: I heard another name for this - "Friction Pants". I will use "Grunt and Moan" in the guide unless I hear otherwise...

Comments: I've only done the route starting from above the chockstone. It's pretty hairy!
Can anyone out there comment on the route starting below the chockstone?

Comments: Ok then. The names were switched and "Cold Feet" is the left-most route. What is now confusing is that the second bolted route from the left was given 11c in the FA report, not 12b.

Comments: Charlie,
I'm guessing you did the direct start instead of off the boulder to the right.
