Comments: Compared to the classic Tollhouse Traverse (5.5), the initial hand to offwidth section easily deserves a 5.7 rating. Multiple locals agree with the 5.7 rating. The chimney section is fun 5.5 for sure.

Comments: As Chris mentions, keep your focus on the bottom since its a bit grainy and runout to getting in solid pro. Solid .10a climbing.

Comments: It was never called Black Sambo. Dwight Kroll and Herb Laeger authored the route and it has always been called Eye Of The Tiger. Additionally, there is a crux near the end where many consider it .10a. The rest is soft 5.9

Comments: Hey Pat, read the sentence carefully. You'll see that the 50+ routes reference was meant for the Center Of The Universe, not the entire Lake Arrowhead climbing area. Hope you're doing well. :)

Comments: What a shame someone had to deflower and pull this route down to their selfish level with stainless steel. This was a trad route first established by Scott Loomis.

Comments: Done with Roger Hayashi in 1997. First bolt is up there a ways! Best to be a capable 5.10 slab climber for this route. Totally had my full attention. Lots of fun rounded knobs up midway.

Comments: Yah Jeff, there WAS a fixed Bong on the 2nd pitch. :( Thieves have since pulled Willis's historical piece. Climbed it twice. The Bong was there in 1997 but found it gone in 2001.

Comments: limpingcrab has it correct. Follow this photo overlay to help navigate Jungle Ledge. And if you do the crack directly, its more like V0.

Comments: A superb route. Lead this route with SSCA crew in 2003. Fun traverse and semi-grunty P2 start.


Location: Nevada > Southern Nevada > Red Rock > Windy Peak > South Face > Jubilant Song (5.8)
By: Dave Daly When: Dec 14, 2016

Comments: Had all of Windy Peak to ourselves. Jubilant Song is a great route! We tossed a coin to decide if we were going to do JS or Hot Fudge Thursday. Mostly 5.7 climbing with a dash of 5.8 here and there. Tough little move after the roof traverse....some old skool 5.8. Advise long slings for the Roof Traverse or the rope drag will be heinous. As expressed, thanks to those that placed cairns for the descent. Back to the packs by mid afternoon. Done April 2015.

As you can see from the page previous, this is indeed under the Tiger Cage section. And Tiger Tiers is on the Tiger Wall, not Tiger Cage area.

Comments: Jeff -

I'm a little confused by your comment. The information listed above is pretty much straight forward. I'm not quite sure what you're looking for exactly. If you're worried about the off-width near the finish, its not that hard....I'd say 5.7/5.8 with a few face holds on the outside to make progress easier. I did use a #5 and #6 Camelot. Be sure to use longer slings once you get into the initial start to the off-width so you're not dealing with rope drag from the change in direction. The c... more >>

Comments: Just for the record, the route is to the climbers right by following the small shallow trough to slanting cracks above.

Comments: Part of the FA effort back in 2013 w/Myles. Stellar addition to the Portal area! An excellent adventure route! Highlights: 'The Pocket Pussy' at the A0 pendy and The Love Cave feature at the first dihedral before the Wrinkled Lady. And, of course, the best for last.....The Wrinkled Lady Dihedral pitch. Gotta personally thank David Gilmour for an inspirational route name :) Ummagumma, BABY!!

Comments: These two "unknown" routes (likely Tim Standing routes), should be listed between 'Ted Shred' and 'Annie Get Your Gun'; listing Paul's Backyard in order, left to right.

Comments: Got the coveted second ascent after Bruce and Em put it up. I think its a good addition to the Hills. Soft 5.9 but likely Bruce would have given it his usual "5.8+". Rest in peace Brutus Of Wyde. :)

Comments: Just for pulling the roof on big holds? Nah, didn't think the route was worthy of 5.9. The rest of the route was 5.7/5.8 climbing on crumbly rock. Ticked.
