Comments: While working the route this fall, I pulled one of the heads and broke the cable on another. Luckily, the heads are not necessary as there are bomber cam placements inches from each of them (and one of the bolts). Great climb with a weird fixed gear situation on P2.

Comments: Thanks for the input, very cool to hear you got on this, Rich! I thought that crux was pretty stiff myself but felt it was tough to rate at the time. I suspected it might be 5.12 but was sort of hoping it wasn't since it is such a short section and is substantially harder than the rest of the route. Sorry for the sandbag, I will update the grade here. If I get up there again this summer I think I'll find a way to make it easier to A0 without adding an aid bolt.

Comments: As of today all anchors and a protection bolt were updated with new hardware so this thing is ready for the masses. If not interested in the Ghost Roof pitch this makes for a classic four pitch climb with an easy rappel descent. Alternatively, you could finish up the last pitch of Sam's Swan Song to the left. The pitch 3 crux is short and can be easily A0'ed which would make for a nice four pitch 5.10.

Comments: All gear protected vertical to slightly overhanging 5.12 face climbing...quite the rarity. If this were on cathedral it would see constant traffic. As it is, well worth the walk!

Comments: the start of the route i am talking about is clearly visible in this photo, it is the gray, right facing corner to the climber's right. When you finish you lower off about 10-12 feet behind your belayer, very cool. and yes, the poison ivy was BAD at the base

Comments: Mark, what is the route that starts in the corner in the foreground and follows eyebolts past a face, into a corner, through a roof and finishes on a steep face? i climbed a handful of routes here last summer and thought that one was exceptional, maybe 10+ and among the best sport routes i have done of the grade.
