Comments: I've been to the temple crag area once in my life about 6 years ago. It's crazy that at once glance of the thumbnail for this picture I instantly said "temple crag" to myself. It doesn't even have temple crag in it! nice painting- you really captured the areas essence

Comments: There was an unexpected and delicate traverse left on the crux pitch. We did this around where the crack widens to #4 C4. Just know that at some point you will want to switch to the left crack.

Don't listen to this beta! I got to this point and stood there for 5 minutes staring at this traverse over. Eventually I just continued up the easy and enjoyable "semi-chimney" with hands in the back of it and then I got to a horizontal crack (that took a yellow tcu) and walked the crack casual... more >>

Comments: I don't understand how you can climb 5.11 on gear but not know how to build gear anchors yet...?

Comments: felt like 10a... at the crux I use a #4 C4 and save the #3 parts of the crack for my fists. came back and did the right exit which climbs through really good fingerlocks/jams to top out. Highly recommended to go this way– you can rest at the jugs for how ever long it takes to de pump.

Comments: Felt like 5.9 to me if not easier for Jtree... I thought Touch and Go was harder. Good jams, good foot jams for your left foot, and good stemming edges for your right foot. Maybe I was having a good day

Comments: Really good jamming. Doesn't over hang that much, at least I didn't notice it, and the lean isn't too awkward.

Make sure you bring extra cord and rap rings just in case as the top doesn't have rap anchors– just two bolts with a sliding x crusty cord and rap ring. Back it up.

Comments: Completely amazing line. Rich in history and filled with unique features like the elephant ear on the first pitch– gaining it and standing upon it may give you slight flashbacks of Traitor Horn. The third pitch has a heroic 5.4 Roof (take that Gunks!) that leads to a slight squeeze chimney. Then out onto a heady slab with a few friction moves that will prepare you for Suicide. Pleasant belay stations: For the second pitch belay, clip a bong older than you and add a couple of pieces. Th... more >>

Comments: I love how straight forward this climb is. Crux pitch takes gear really well although it does take some extra energy while lie backing. In a couple of spots I placed a couple of pieces when one would've sufficed. I think this was the difference between falling and onsighting it for me. I would say at the crux, the hands are all there but the feet get worse. Place good gear and clip directly into it– no need to extend any slings (a habit formed when climbing 8's/9's), there is no drag on this pi... more >>

Comments: This is a fun one. I got spanked on the first pitch 5.8 OW. Groaned and made all kinds of noises up. Misjudged how far we had gone and went through the crux without realizing it was going to be right there. From what I remember I equalized 0 and 00 TCU's at the crux section.
