Comments: No worries, I was happy to add the description of the ending you described today just as I did for the route's name in 2014. I will update my free topo to include this ending after I have climbed it, and it will be incorporated into my next book.

Comments: Actually, the route descriptions that I have are completely correct as I have personally led every route that I have in my book.

Comments: The tower in the background the the Shmotem Pole. We called the formation in the foreground "The Hatch". One route up the crack system called "Up the Hatch". :)

Comments: Yeah it is pretty intense there Neil. I personally thought it was scarier for the follower than the leader. I was able to find a nut that I could use to protect the follower up and right of this spot. It's only useful for the follower and hard to find though.

Comments: This is a fun climb. Some of the beta is a bit different from Weekend Rock, so I posted an updated topo here:

There are several more good routes on this wall that I will detail as I have time.

Comments: Ok guys, you're both right. I dug up the original picture (which, by the way, was not taken with a good camera) and took a few minutes to process it more nicely.

Comments: Thanks Andrew, I will be glad to look into this further. It would be best to honor the restrictions as posted by the FS until this is clarified. Check out climbaz.com for background on the closures.
