Comments: Not really that great of a route. Protects well. Can build a gear anchor to belay partner up at rappel bush.

Comments: There were 3 anchor set ups with 2 bolts each for the routes mentioned. One of the bolts was wiggling in it's hole for the Hairy Virgin anchor. There are cracks that can be used to back it up with trad gear or you could sling a huge boulder for pro too with a cordalette.

Comments: I just trad lead this today with a # .75, #1 and a medium stopper. Super easy trad lead. Good for beginners.
There is another trad leadable crack just to the left of this route that is slightly harder, 5.4 maybe, that takes small to medium nuts and then is run out to the chains on super easy terrain. We called it Chinese Gaunchos.
Both routes have 2 chain anchors that were bomber.
Enjoy.

Comments: This route is really fun. I really liked the long traverse on the bolted second pitch. Way cool. The third pitch ramp is super easy and has four bolts. The last bolt is about 5 feet from the belay anchors and I don't understand why it is there. Fun Route.

The variation to the right of the first pitch is called All Decked Out and does run at about 5.8. It is also really cool.

Comments: This route is super fun. There is a fun crux on the first pitch as well as the second pitch. The third pitch is cool because you have to lean over a 15-20ft chasm to get onto the main wall. Super cool! Do it.

Comments: I hiked up to the Butte and found that there are multiple seemingly good cracks to climb all over the formation (FA opportunities??). I also hiked up into the saddle where I assumed Independent Hangover started and found that the views were absolutely amazing.

Comments: I'm not sure if this has been done before me or not, hence the "?" in the FA box.
This is a great first lead for beginning trad climbers.

Comments: Scott Greenhalgh put up the second pitch solo, with a hand drill. Nice work Scott.

Comments: 2nd pitch rappel anchors for King Pin and Direct Route need to be replaced. They are really bad. There is one bomber bolt and 2 scary cemented pins. Half of the cement has eroded out of the holes leaving about an inch or more of the pin exposed. SCARY! The pitch is way fun though.

Comments: We climbed this and replaced the top webbing (Oct. 2009)so it is good for a while now.
Fun Route. I need to go back and Red Point it.

Comments: I love the second pitch as well. The top anchors are super skechy though. I'll post it when I add a decent bolt to the 2 pin 1 bolt anchor. The bolt is solid, but the pins are no good.

Comments: The first set of belay anchors are 3 bolts with chains and they are super bomber. Really fun and easy trad lead. Really straight forward. Great for an aspiring trady. The first pitch is maybe 5.8.

Comments: Looks cool. I need to get some large gear to try it. Nice work Ryan.

Comments: Fun Route with off width Crux. I'd do it again. Used cams up to #3 camalot and hexes up to #10. Great route. Place the #3 before the off width section and place a piece after the off width section to avoid using the larger cams, It's only a 7-8 foot run out if you do this.

Comments: Stevie, I agree that the route is great and adventurous, however, the anchor bolts, as of 2 months ago, need to be replaced for everyones safety. I'll try to add a new bolt next time that I climb the 2nd pitch. I'll post it if I do.

Comments: Only the first bolt is missing from the route making the first bolt 15' up from where the route starts, but 30' from the deck on the west side of the climb. Stay on the East aspect of the arete and you'll be fine. Super fun route!
