Comments: I climbed the first pitch yesterday and did not find the piton, which I guess might have fallen off or was removed. There was a purple BD fixed nut at the crux, which I found a little scary, because if you blow it and the nut pulls, you are likely hitting the flake below you.

Overall, the route is great and, except for the crux move, protects easily and is a lot of fun.

Comments: Just climbed it on July 9th, 2011, it was a fun outing even if the route could benefit from a little more traffic. It had several sections with lichens on the rock as well as several crumbly sections.

I brought a #6 Camalot which was useful on the first 3 pitches, and double BD #1, #2, #3, #4, and a single #5 and #6.

Overall, the 5.7 runout slabs (pitch 4 and 5) with the Star drives are not too bad, runout but definitely easy slab climbing with some g... more >>

Comments: This route seem to get bigger every passing year. It seems to take mostly #2 until right after the roof and then #3 BD Camalots to the anchors. It is wide for me after the roof, and I cannot use fists until the very top.

Much Harder than IHC.

Comments: I have done the route yesterday, and currently the webbing at the first belay is not in great shape. It might need to be replaced soon.

There are also two fixed nuts on the traverse on the first pitch, both after the second bolt. They seem in good condition and we clipped them both.

Great route.

Comments: I think the 5.9 rating is if you stay left and not use the right crack.

Then it becomes more delicate and extremely enjoyable.

Comments: This route is amazing and the real crux for me was the altitude. Scrambling to the top of Long's felt like an ordeal. A must do route.

Comments: This is a very aesthetic problem and who cares if it is V7, V8 or V9. It is a cool problem and a beautiful line. Why as climbers we do not concentrate on just this?!?!
