Comments: Soloed this March of 2017. Nice little route. Too bad it wasn't longer.

Comments: I don't know if anyone has done this route previously, but I'd guess that the answer is yes. I couldn't find any beta so I'm adding it to MP. I thought this route was very physical with feet on the right getting thinner and thinner the higher you climb. The little crack deep inside keeps this on the reasonable side of the "hard work" dividing line, though I must confess that I, myself... more >>

Comments: I believe the Vogel guide calls this a 4th class gully. It certainly is harder than 4th class and 5.3 seems right. With two trees baring the way the name Five Tree is appropriate. Gets you easier access to the upper tier routes.

Comments: Yes, know going in that this is a dangerous route for both the leader and the belayer. With the fragility of the flake a fall would likely pull any piece out and the climber and sharp rock pieces would likely come down on the belayer.

Comments: Yes, I agree. This route is definitely more difficult than 5.6! If someone told me that the move off the stance near the middle was 5.8 I'd nod my head in agreement. As it is I'll say 7+ in keeping with Larry. Either way it's an enjoyable route and there is easy access to the bolt anchors at the top of Double Delight.

Comments: I led this the other day and found it unexpectedly thought provoking. I went in expecting an easy romp, but there were a couple of manky placements before I finally got a totally solid placement halfway up. I don't know....5.7...?? I'm going to say 7+ just for grins. Ends at a convenient anchor.

Comments: This is a very nice route. At the fifth bolt or so the climbing is fairly sustained until you reach the anchor. Thin thin thin. Three stars!

Comments: Getting into the crack system seemed more like a 5.7 move to me. I wonder if the rating for Snake Oil and Faith healer somehow got mixed up?

Comments: Staying on the right near the top using a thin crack is unnecessary, but more fun.

Comments: An unremarkable route, but it's convenient to the descent anchors so it's not a lot of trouble to climb. Watch for rocks near the top.

Comments: Interesting moves especially the move getting to the second bolt. Fun route with convenient descent anchors. If you're in the neighborhood you might as well jump on it.

Comments: This route is a gem! Pure climbing fun. Plenty of feet so you don't have to really pull too hard on the thin flake. I don't think I actually used any layback moves at all.

Comments: I led this today (Black Friday) on a cool, but sunny day. I thought it was a bit difficult to arrange protection a time or two due to a couple of awkward stances, but otherwise the climbing was fairly straight forward if not a bit slick from the many boots that went before. I agree with the previous comment about reaching higher for jugs if you get in a bind. A nice tower to summit. You'll probably have to wait in line, but what the heck.

Comments: I did this once and that was enough for me. Really bad landing if you come off. I didn't even bother with a pad as you'd probably need a bunch to properly protect yourself. Good moves though!

Comments: I climbed the Upper Exum last Thursday car to car in 16 hours. What an awesome day! This was my first time on the mountain and my partner and I got lost a time or two, but probably lost no more than an hour in total.

We left the Lupine parking lot at 2:45 am and got to the boulder field in the dark and got off track there. In the daylight The path was much easier to discern, but still not great. Not really many cairns on the trail like I would have expected. It seems that every boulder f... more >>

Comments: One of my favorite routes back in the early 80's when I was climbing here quite a bit. I loved the two pitch alpine nature of the route.

Comments: I led this back in the 80's and when I got to the top the crack was filled with dirt and roots making for a very exciting exit. Similar thing happened to my brother on the crack surprise. We figured out what the surprise was a little too late.

Comments: I led this the other day as a "warm-up" and thought the moves on the first half were quite interesting considering the lack of solid protection. It seemed that the crux move was about 15 feet above my first piece. The top half is much more casual and very fun.
