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 updated the free topo to match.

Comments: Actually, the route descriptions that I have are completely correct as I have personally led every route that I have in my book. The left hand variation of the lower pitches are detailed in the topo. It looks like the FA chose a slightly different way to end the "The Tombstone Stripper" than what I chose. This information just made public; I climbed this ending and have added it to the description. (Previously I finished on Peacemaker and Mad Cow).

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.
