Comments: WARNING, A LOT OF LOOSE ROCK ON THIS ROUTE.
I think it is fine to climb it, just beware of what you are grabbing and make sure the belayer is off to the side. I pulled several dinner plates off with my fingers. 3/26/17

Comments: There is a 50' tall by 100' wide black slab left of buttress with Sportfishing. Next west is a cool overhanging wall, 2 short routes with old slings.

Comments: there is a swallows nest right in the corner of the roof and I think you need gear right there, stay off this or avoid the nest by placing gear below and above this spring.

Comments: The 10b roof protects well and if juggy, however reachy, with the crux just after the roof. Bring 2-3 each of #2, and #3 Camalots for the 2nd pitch. The top out was cool with overhanging crack, was not too hard if stemming, we did as a short 3rd pitch because it also takes big cams.
Also have done this with the 10a variation and it is harder then it looks, very strenuous placing gear at fingers layback crux.

Comments: the roof on this now has 5 or 6 beautiful swallows nests, which don't affect the route, just don't touch them.

Comments: I have seen this rapped with a single 80m rope, but it was just a little short to be able to TR it.

Comments: I would not recommend this route to a budding 5.8 leader. It may be fun, but it is dangerous. It feels quite insecure making the 2nd clip, feels more like 5.9 passing it. Then there is considerable run-out after the 3rd clip, just don't fall, the arete may sever your rope. Otherwise it is a decent route.

Comments: FIRST ASCENT: Pat Dulin, 1988. This is actually a pretty good climb, just so short.

Comments: FIRST ASCENT: Kevin Pogue, Jason Prinster, april 1993. I climbed this back in 93 and had no idea it was a brand new route. It is a cool route.

Comments: one of the best routes at Vantage. It has a bolted sport clip anchor below the top.

Comments: I PULLED MANY LOOSE BLOCKS NEAR THE TOP. I think it is solid now, just beware of the block on the ledge where finger crack runs up to the anchor. 3/1/17

Comments: I climbed this 3/1/17 and still think it is hard, even with using the arete holds it seems more like 10b. I looked at having a bolted anchor on the face below the top and the rock is too crappy. There used to be bolts up on top, where it would be solid, but I won't bolt on top anymore due to hanger theft. The trad anchor options are good, but convoluted, use a cord-o-let.

Comments: BEWARE OF LOOSE ROCK.
I climbed this on 3/2/17 and pulled off quite a lot of loose rock, it is cleaner now but still suspect.

Comments: The old road is completely obliterated with fallen trees, branches etc. Mother nature lending a hand to the folks building the new dirty harry trail. The ice storms stripped many limbs from Alders and snapped tops off of many trees. 2/18/17

Comments: This route makes you use your brain, puzzling adventure. The bolting is awkward, it was probably hard to find good bolt placements.
