Comments: Did this yesterday. Pitch 1 and 2 were grunt fests and completely boring. Pitch 3 was nice, but I ended up taking a pretty big fall trying to climb the dihedral all the way. Pulled out a questionable #4 along the way. Move right into the parallel cracks, route finding is winning. Pitch 4 looked awful and wasn't much better.

I won't go back, but I can see how this would be a good climb for people already in the 11s. If you're a beginner climber (like me), this isn't your standard 5.7. Protects w... more >>

Comments: Great crack. Super painful on the muscles for the new crack climber, I was screaming like the pros to get my arms to work. The feet are much better than they look.

Comments: Chalk X not there. The rock still is. I don't think anyone who looks at where they are climbing is going to use it as a hold.

Comments: I love climbing. I'd rather climb the nearby trees than this again. It isn't that this route is bad, it was just really lack luster. I've had some scramble ascents that were more hair raising and exciting.

The gear was placed only as a "well fuck it...we're supposed to place gear 40ft up a wall. might as well." I climbed this within my first few weeks of climbing, so this isn't from a wellspring of experience, talent and skill.

Comments: GREAT route. My first lead on a 10. Loved every second of it. In an effort to practice more passive gear placement, the pink and brown tri-cams are great for pro around where you would put the Aliens.

Comments: I'm new to climbing and leading (2 months climbing and only a handful of trad leads), but I would wager that the "off-width" start is harder than 5.7. I've been able to lead up to 5.8 so far, and the "off-width" start has to easily be the hardest thing I've climbed. There is great pro as far as I was able to lead. I used up to a #4. Theres a fantastic hand/finger crack, that runs under the flake, inside of the main crack and it will accept 0.3.

From some of the other photos, I think that Nightt... more >>
