Comments: The first bolt is out of reach while on good holds. Do yourself a favor and stick clip it. The tumble is ugly.

Comments: I liked SGC much better. At this time of year, the Ice Cliff Glacier is mostly just steep snow—the ice was very short-lived and the snow we encountered in that couloir was much deeper and less consolidated, so we had a really physical, exhausting climb without many redeeming factors other than the ice and the position on Stuart. SGC had way better snow and the climbing above was really engaging and fun without being too scary. I also liked the top-out on SGC better. With ICG, you still have... more >>

Comments: Thanks for posting your TR and adding the route here! We met when you guys made it back to camp that night (we were headed to the Ice Cliff Glacier the next day). Goran and I headed up this weekend and hit SGC in perfect conditions (firmer snow on the approach, a little more ice in the couloir protectable with a screw or two, and less rime excavation up top). Thanks for putting the idea in our heads!

Comments: A friend and I just stayed at the Double Diamond X Ranch for 4 nights in their bunkhouse. The price was on par with the Big Bear, but it's located right at the fork in the road near the Schoolhouse Creek parking lot, so it saves you the drive every day and makes it easy to head to the North or South side of the canyon. Just bring food for your whole stay. The proprietor is a really nice guy just getting things off the ground.

Comments: I only climbed the first pitch and was just barely able to stretch a 60m rope to the ground. Another group went up the second pitch ahead of us and said it was phenomenal.

Comments: The topo in Kramar's 2010 guide suggests that all of the climbs on the "Sport Wall" start at the same elevation. It sure seemed like there were three climbs that started low down together (Tubbing, Rattle, and Zweibles) on the right and the rest were up on the ledge to the left (towards Piton Tower).

Any better beta out there?

Comments: What's the deal with the finish of this route? Making it to the last bolt isn't all that tough, but the section between the last bolt and anchor is pretty blank. I was baffled.

Comments: This was a great route with good holds and fun movement throughout. There was almost no chalk on the route when I did it and the hardest part was figuring out what to reach for.

Comments: I don't believe so--he just hit it really awkwardly against the wall, but I hear you on the belay location.

Comments: This route was right at my limit when I tried it in March. If you're worried about the lead, it's quite easy to lead Baseboy Direct (5.11a) immediately to the left and traverse at the top to set up a top rope. I enjoyed this route very much--it had a series of difficult moves on small edges and slopes.
