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: Climbed this rig on 5/30/15 and the first 12- pitch, the pin 10' above the belay fell out and needs to be replaced, a LA, otherwise it's 20' to first piece and you'd hammer the belay if you fell. The nut is back in on the first 5.11 roof.

Hardest, sustained, and headiest 12 I've tried in the canyon compared to Lost Cities, Hotlanta , Tague Your Time, Cheap Hooker, Twisted, Eighth Voyage of Sinbad, Air Voyage, The Diagonal, but maybe I was just out of shape for wall climbing antics, I'll know n... more >>
