Comments: People are complaining that you will deck if you fall before clipping the second bolt. I don't think that is the case if you have an attentive belayer. (That second bolt was added after the climb was established, so just think of the decking potential without it). Climbing is a dangerous sport but certainly, Brad, Mike and I want it to be as safe as possible so give us more of your opinions on the fall potential before clipping the second bolt and we can adjust things if that... more >>

Comments: If you get into the growth and dirt, you are off route, especially at the jam crack. There you can easily cheat and stay right in the crud but why would you want to avoid a beautiful jam crack?

Comments: I definitely had shorter people in mind with that chain draw. Hope they appreciate it.

Comments: Caliza: If you think the very top is harder than 11c you aren't doing it correctly. If I can do it, it's 11c or easier cause I have no strength, balance, technique, ability, persistence, patience, or desire.

Comments: At the crux you better have a lot of flexibility in your left high step. A bit of a one move wonder climb

Comments: Bill Price: Go ahead and push the route up another 15 or 20 feet if you think it will improve the route.

Comments: There is a new route just right of "Pushing Tin". What can you tell me about it?

Comments: On the first pitch, about 2/3 of the way up there are two "overlapping" options. I suggest taking the left option. It may look harder but it is more direct and your pro has less chance of pulling out when you get above it.

Comments: We were trying to do the North Rib but don't think we did. As we approached from the west we climbed to the smaller prominent notch on the farthest left side of the peak. We went up a chimney (not a corner) that started less than 100 feet up from the left toe of the peak. There was very little possible places to protect in the chimney. There was no evidence of anyone being there before. Many of the hand and foot holds would pulverise when you used them. When we got to the not... more >>

Comments: Someone moved the second bolt up and left and added a chain draw to the third bolt. What's your opinion of this change?

Comments: Replaced the hanger on the second bolt. We changed the locations of the top anchors (moved it up and right) and added a bolt so now the climb is a little longer.

Comments: I have free soloed this route a couple of times alone. I will give you a little beta that I wish I'd had. At the start, between the 1st and 2nd tower go up the first ramp from left to right. The fresh air traverse (FAT) can be a little tricky to find. When I last did it a couple of weeks ago, you could see webbing that someone had placed on three pitons on the FAT and you can see them before starting up to get on the FAT. (before going up to the FAT you will have come down to... more >>

Comments: Dennis: Good Job. It looks like there is a discrepancy on where Fast Food Wall is located. Maybe my coordinates weren't correct?

Comments: I made changes to the topo which is in the Photo's section on the Emeralds main page which will provide better information on "Solar Wind" and "Sun Burn"

Comments: On 5/2/16 that hanger was replaced. The stud is in excellent condition. I have no idea why the hanger went missing.

Comments: The 3rd hanger is missing on this route. If you replace it, leave a comment here. You will need a hanger and a 3/8 inch nut and washer. The 3/8 inch stud is in good condition. You can easily get to this bolt by climbing "Shadows on the Earth" (the climb just right) and, just before doing the roof, traverse left.

Comments: Maybe the second bolt needs to be moved 12" left? Maybe a bolt needs to be added between the 2nd and 3rd bolt? What are your thoughts? I see the route doesn't get done much. Maybe that's why?

Comments: Kelly Gilleran said "To me the whole route felt great until the end where it kinda blanked out and got dirty. I was trying some desperate moves with a toe hook on the arete". Kelly, I think you were going too far to the Right at the top. Don't go over to the Arete. It's kinda a hard right foot smear but can be done and staying right on the bolt line. (Heck, I did the move so you can surely do the move)

Comments: Salmanizer and Colonel Mustard: I made changes to my Description and Location section. If you two can come to an agreement as to what is appropriate for changes to the information I provided I will be happy to make changes.
