Comments: I know a few people that solo climb and I respect more the ones that do so ALONE. Soloing is a selfish pursuit so why bother going where there are people or cameras? I never want to be that guy at the bottom of the cliff when a soloist falls, would you?



I reiterate that soloing is dumb, but if you don't involve others (whether bystanders, other climbers, hikers, etc.)then at least you won't make others at the crag feel uncomfortable.

Comments: Rack from 0.3 to #2 with doubles in 0.4 and 0.75 will suffice. The #1 and #2 are for the gear anchor but other sizes would work (Lots of gear on top).

Medium to large nuts would also work in that crack.

Comments: I took the biggest whipper of my life on this route 40+ ft. Right below the 1st set of anchor, I was at the bolt but didn't have it clipped. If I ever get on this route again I'm bringing a cam or two!

Comments: It's now recommended to stick-clip the 2nd bolt on this route as the 1st bolt has been moved left to accomodate the original line

Comments: If 5.10 is your limit, consider stick-clipping the 2nd bolt.

Comments: a little run-out. Be solid at the grade before venturing on this route. Ground fall potential on the first 3 bolts.

Comments: Super fun climb! I disagree with the PG13 rating. Sure it would suck to fall in a chimney but that doesn't mean this route is not well protected.

Comments: Man I remember doing this route and thinking that the crux was obviously the overhanging start. Faack! the start was the easy part! That finger crack after the overhang isn't that good and those feet suck! That being said, what as fun route!!

Comments: I find long Runners are handy to protect using trees or threads on this route.

Comments: I'm pretty sure Cory Goodman has a topo of the area.

Also, Chris I think people on CEC were against posting areas with fragile access (CL, Sunnyside, etc.). I'm sure nobody cares if you post Cape Spencer. Cedar point would also benefit beeing posted on here IMO.

Good work on the pictures and tentative topo Ian.

Comments: I'm confused. Is the pitch 3 chimney part of this route or is that what they call Gunklandia direct?

Anyways the chimney is harder than 5.7. like GMburns said

If you don't know who I'm talking about then you haven't climbed at Clifton.
