Comments: Ya pretty easy to onsight, circling is more of a challenge for sure.

Comments: I believe I climbed this on gear and it went up 100+ feet to an existing anchor after the bulge in corner. Should check it out further up, my memory could be wrong…

Comments: It was awesome! Besides the rain and shivering belays...

I would like to see what the consensus ends up being for the crux pitch around the arete. My personal experience was that it felt like 5.11 then a .10+ R traverse to the crack.

Lots of good cracks and some SERIOUS sections. Pretty clean already, new classic?

Comments: I guess this was the initial topo and route, but the new book has a more complete and different finish to it. I'll need to try that soon!

Comments: One of the best on the wall for sure! Not much sun due to the far left side aspect it's on. Only did like 2 pitches in the sun.

Comments: Rapping "Rainbow" for any route on this side is the obvious way to go, 70m with knots!

Comments: If you were to fall before the bolt on pitch five, you would crater on the ledge (maybe the one piece would hold but...). A first starting bolt would make this a non-dangerous excursion!

The beginning pitches are very good also.

Stout 5.12 climbing for sure.

Comments: This route is classic face climbing! Of course it has runouts, but I didn't see anything scarier than what's in the rest of the canyon. Probably the best finish in the canyon! If you want to be truly frightening, climb "Tuffnell Magee"!

(Bo, I raided some of the candy stash!)

Comments: Now there is a second rap anchor off of the island topout, so leave the tag at home. A 70m is needed!

Comments: Installed a second rap anchor to alleviate the need for a tagline, but you do need a 70m to reach it. It's nuts and cams with fixed cord and biners.

Comments: I just installed a second anchor. If you bring a 70m, the tag is unnecessary. Tie knots in your rope, there is not much left on the second rappel.

Comments: Good free climb for sure! One of the best down there. Definitely link p6-7, I had no cams either but soloed it pretty much. The 3rd p crux is actually after the overhang I thought. Good 12 hr climb for us but had friends pass us at a 6hr pace! The upper crux p is full on for about 12-15'!

Comments: Left hand on the good hand, right foot groin level, right hand black rounded crimp, and throw to almost into the v-slot with your left hand.
