Comments: no gear is required, just draws. You can't really TR this one without a CRAP TON of drag. Best to bring your second up and have them clean it on way down. shares anchor at top with Cryptic. Was up there on 12/06/16 and there were two sets of anchors oddly placed IMO. Bring cordallette or better yet, 2 to TR the 5.9 between SW corner and Cryptic.

Comments: WHEN YOU RAP FROM TOP, rap past belay ledge anchors, even though there are rap rings on em, and go to the second set, the ones you pass on the way up, otherwise your rope WILL NOT make it down...

I have a Maxium glider 9.8 70m rope and it DID NOT make it down...

Comments: Lead this and hung a few times, didn't dare fall down low on that flake... Very grainy, shit breaking off.

Bolt at crux is nice, the crux top half is deff commiting, but if you made it there, shouldn't be to much of an issue.

NO bolts at top for TR anchor, you need to go back and left 15-20 feet to a small .75-#1 or smaller green aliens crack, or bring big shit for the big crack at your feet at the top out. For TR, bring a static line to extend... more >>

Comments: Broke a piece off before the secure block at the base of the OW. It's pretty loose by the start. Watchout for people heading up the trail before you start, it went clear onto the trail. 11/24/2016

Bring #5's for sure, 4's will tip out about 10 feet up the crack. Face has pretty good holds on both sides.

Comments: The pump near the top out was real, at least for me... Holds are all there, big huge jugs and good pockets. People say to skip the last bolt and push to anchor since its right there, but I certainly was glad I clipped that last bolt because I was pumped by the end and barely clipped the mashy hook anchors at the top. Could be because I'm 235lbs and climbed a lot before I did this end of day route though...

Comments: pretty standard for a climb in the nears... At least near the White Tower climbs. How about the rap tree on Deception that is infested with ants and pretty much out of the ground...
