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 dire... 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.

Location: CA : Sierra Eastside : Lone Pine Area : Alabama Hills : Paul's Paradise : ... : Gun Rail (5.9)

Comments: Went back a few weeks ago and did all of the routes on the north side of Paul's, including the route to the right of Gun Rail (which, in the Bishop guidebook, is 5.9). Gun Rail is more sustained than the route to the right (which has an opening move that might check in at soft 5.9). I'd consider bumping Gun Rail's rating to 5.9+/.10a.

Comments: Not sure if you see the routes listed for the West Penguin but these are the "unreported" routes you speak of....'Stem Cell Research' (.10a) and 'My Little Lab Rat' (.10b). Give them a try before you eyeball rate them from the ground.

Comments: More specifically, 'Three Feathers' (5.9). Probably THE best route on the Melting Wall! But then again, they're all good!

Comments: Anyone have knowledge where to get a shower outside the park, besides a hotel or RV park? Surprised the park doesn't have restrooms with showers by now.

Comments: 12 or 13 years??!! Has it been that long? I remember when you put in that pitch Dwight. Think we all thought it was 5.9 after leading it. As I recall, it was moving from the 1st to the 2nd bolt is the crux. All I remember was, "Don't come off or I'll be making a running arc at my belayer!" Committing. I'd still rate it 5.9 though (3rd pitch).

I heard Matt Schutz and Mark did a route right of Elephant Walk and T-House Traverse. But there were rumors that a mega runout route was in that vicinity... more >>

Comments: Agreed with your comment regarding the Pg13 rating. Went back and changed it since I haven't a clue why I added it. Fat finger editing? ;)

Comments: The route author (Pat Brennan) added a bolt (2011) to protect from a ground fall before doing the intial move up and left.
