Comments: This is a truly stellar problem, perhaps one of the best of the grade in Tahoe. It's tall, clean, obvious, aesthetic, scary, and fun. I didn't think the moves were much harder than V3, at least if they were off the ground instead of 15 feet up, but that being said, if someone told me it was a 4 I wouldn't have argued after doing it.

Comments: I could see it go either way, I mostly climb at the tunnel and most (all?) of the 12a's there seem harder than this though, but perhaps I've gotten stronger. To be fair on my only trip (so far) to LCC the only climbs harder than 5.10 i tried were this and Flying Cows, and Flying Cows didn't seem insanely more difficult; I sent this second go and almost did the same with Flying Cows. The crux reach to the crimps below the traverse didn't seem too difficult but I did use a potentia... more >>

Comments: Guns of Navarrone is a project in the Wilder guide and it's only a 6. As far as I can tell you got the first ascent, good job!

Comments: The crux for me was pulling off the dirt and making the first move. The throw to the razor didn't seem nearly as hard with my beta.

Comments: Also, this is to the right of Fire Eater Cafe not Mean People Suck. It's to the left of Mean People Suck.

Comments: This description seems to describe Fire Eater Cafe . From what I understand, Mean People Suck is 3 bolt lines to the right of Starfighter.

Comments: I tried this line both ways. The beta to follow the bolt line on the face after the second ledge is tricky for 11a at best. It took me several tries to figure out a good sequence, and even then, the crimps are thin and the feet are bad. If you continue up jamming the crack after the second ledge, then traverse right to the penultimate bolt when you get to the hidden crimp near the top of the crack for the last few face moves, it is easier but still feels like 11a to me. Perhaps taking the crack ... more >>

Comments: Owen is correct. Apparently there was some really low chalk near the pictograph which caused the whole thing to be shut down. One of the rangers told me it's possible that the classic stand start could reopen as long as the SDS isn't climbed but that seems like wishful thinking at this point.

Comments: There's a low start to this further down matched on an undercling which goes at V8-V9 called Bobby Bearclaw.

Comments: Dabby, and the top-out, though not required, is all choss. Still fun moves moving through the roof though.

Comments: This feels harder than Abbey (5.12a) at the Tunnel but easier than Scott (also 5.12a) to me.

Comments: Also pretty sure the whole "handjam" wall is off for both hands and feet. It goes at V5 without it.

Comments: A friend and I did this route this past weekend. Got slightly lost on the way back in the dark which delayed us about an hour, but it would have been ~12 hrs, car-to-car, so keep that in mind when planning.

We were able to combine pitches 3 and 4 (make sure to extend pitch 2 as far as you can) and also pitches 7 and 8 with a 70m rope, so it's possible to do this in only 7 pitches.

We descended via the south spur - west route described above. With 2 70m ropes, we were easily able to reach the ... more >>

Comments: Powerful, reachy start and balancy footwork with bad slopers for hands up higher made this problem seem harder than many v3s in the park. I'd conservatively grade this problem v2 at least.
