Comments: The 1/4" lead bolts have been replaced. From the look of it, this 'horrible old bolt' on P2 has been cracked in half for a very long time. Worthless. New bolt is in the same hole.

Comments: I cleaned up a couple cams off the route today. I got a first generation green Camalot off the first pitch and one of the five #3s on the last pitch. I had a hammer and a funkness, but the rest are going to require a hacksaw. The one I removed was the most annoying - just before the crux move. Neither cam is serviceable any longer.

Comments: Anchor up top - wrap three or four strands of rope around the tip of the summit (tensionless hitch) which gives a high enough point to belay from while seated on the sharp block to climber's right. Not super comfortable but strong and effective.

Comments: Did a link-up of P1-3 of Captain Beyond with a finish on Perversion and Vulcans Don't Lie. My partner got the rope stuck behind the flake a couple body lengths above the climber in this photo (the detached green one, not the upper brown one). It stuck solidly while he was at the crux of VDL. I had him anchor into three pieces, and I rope-soloed the pitch on clove hitches to get up to the flake and build a belay there. Placing a nut at the top of that flake would probably keep... more >>

Jason - The Beloved Chosspile also known as Eldo is an acquired taste. It's too bad that you didn't enjoy your route that much, but only 3 out of 773 climbers have given this climb less than 2 stars. Sounds like you had a bad day. Do Ruper or Gambit at daybreak for cooler temps next time. The charm of Eldo is a diamond-in-the-rough quality that sets it apart from sport c... more >>

Comments: Unfortunately this is no longer as good a pitch for beginner trad leaders as it was before the rock scaling. The removal of that column of rock has left a few suspect holds, and the tree snapped off during the operation. It was once 'G' rated but now is probably 'PG-13' for a novice (good gear not as obvious or plentiful.)

Comments: Fun route. We did this in 6 pitches with a 70m rope (combined the final three into two). Didn't take a #4 but would have placed it if we had. Placed only 3 nuts on the entire route. Last pitch is pretty run out but easy. Somewhat complicated descent.

Comments: Really fun pitch.
Build an anchor on the right just shy of the end with a few 1/2"-3/4" pieces and lower. (If you're going to walk this far, everyone in the party should get to lead it. Last guy gets a second lap.)

Comments: Cut seven layers of tat off the 4.5" belay/rappel tree. The tree creaked audibly when weighted and was scarred by the slings.
Installed two stainless bolts with double rings a few feet to the right.
The summit has a large dead tree that used to be an anchor. There is a vertical glue-in anchor now that works either direction - rap the route or rap to the block at the base of Gambit where the trail is nice.

Comments: Chris, regarding rope drag on P4: right at that corner, place a medium-sized nut upside down (with the wire pointing up). It's not there to catch a fall, but the rope runs against the nut and won't jam in the crack. Works like a charm.
