Comments: God naming and claiming "FA's" of slacklines is so lame.

Comments: Great climbing! A few flexing holds just before and in the midst of the crux will likely have this one measuring up to its grade in the near future.

Comments: Great route! Noticed quite a few of the 316 stainless glue-ins mixed in with the new titanium bolts (which are greatly appreciated!) are already showing signs of corrosion with rust leaching into the epoxy. Why was SS mixed in with Ti--cost, I'm assuming? Replacing those is going to suck.

Comments: Definitely not an FA, poor form to retro-name and claim FA's on obvious lines at old crags. redriverclimbing.com/RRCGuide/...

Comments: Agreed with V3ish for the obvious line moving right to the arete, very good movement. The V7 listed in the print guidebook seems very contrived given the proximity of the nice juggy arete.

Comments: Meh. The true horn part is kind of weird and contrived. Climbing leading up to it on Coffin Nail is fantastic though.

Comments: Great route. One of the somewhat more important epoxied holds in the upper crux is flexing and the glue is cracked unfortunately, so well may be harder soon without maintenance.

Comments: "Intended"? Not sure what that means with regard to a piece of naturally occuring rock. The bolt would have been much better placed a foot to the right, and the rock quality is the same there. In any case, the route made for a very enjoyable toprope as-is, but I doubt I would lead it again.

Comments: Good climbing. Crux (5th) bolt is poorly positioned and could easily lead to being flipped in a fall, detracts quite a bit from an otherwise very good line.

Comments: Not 11a anymore. Bad fall from the crux, climber beware.

Comments: You will need a BD6 to actually protect the top section. Very stout for the grade.

Comments: Great route. The chimney is about 5.7 at hardest so I wouldn't stress much about it much if you have a bit of wide crack technique.
