A butter knife. The right tool for the job.

Comments: I wanted to read the labels, so I tried viewing full size. Nope. Then, I saved it to my computer and zoomed in on it, but the resolution was too fuzzy. Any ideas how I can read the labels?

Comments: Good point about the ring. I hear all emergency rooms have ring cutters (seriously).

Comments: Rappel length closer to 125 feet. A 70 will leave you several feet short of the big boulder at the beginning. Beware!

I think the "right finish" you're referring to is actually the climb, Stage Fright.

Edit: Obviously, I was mistaken, based on the comments below.

Do you think the broken holds were related to climbing sandstone right after raining? Sandstone is known for that, and most climbers will refrain from climbing sandstone for 24-48 hours after rain.

Comments: Not sure why the roof is referred to as a "bulge." (also called a bulge in the guidebook) I think of a bulge as a hump, something smooth and rounded. Either way, the two pitches were fun.

From the Wallace - Haeckel col to the summit of Haeckel, the route is the South Ridge. South Ridge is mostly Class 2, with a couple of short Class 3 sections.

Comments: My non-climbing friend and I climbed the South Ridge (Class 3) from Sailor Lake last summer. A fair amount of talus on the approach to Wallace-Haeckel col, then a fun scramble to the summit. A couple of Class 3 moves, depending on which way you go, but mostly class 2. We took a rope and light rack, but never needed it. A long day, though.

Comments: "Showing off"? Don't know why people are making those comments about the photo. He posted a photo, with no egotistical comments, and the wankers are weighing in.

Looks like fun, Jason.

Comments: Eee-ther pronunciation is correct. Or is it, aye-ther? You could just call it Lily Rock, which is another name for it.

(I've heard people insist that it's pronounced Tah-keets, but don't think it matters)

Comments: The description of this climb is not correct; the topo map is. After the bolt, go right around the arete, up past two more bolts, then to the anchor. The crux is getting over the small roof between the second and third bolts.

Comments: I'm surprised there isn't a rap anchor on top. The downclimb is quite exposed.
