Comments: Has the crack below and to the left of Bobcat Cringe been climbed? As of this spring, it looked pretty clean, and there was a new looking bolt somewhere up top between Peanuts and Bobcat. Looks thin and hard.

Comments: I have a 5'8 wingspan, and can just barely (fingertips to fingertips, face pressed against the rock) reach jug-to-jug when exiting into TPMV. Not trivial, though; this move definitely still feels like the crux. As Blake notes, it would be much, much harder if you could not reach between the jugs.

An excellent route, and highly recommended.

Comments: "Ratskins" variation, 12a:

Climb up the majority of Batskins normally, clipping the first two bolts in the 5.12 part. Before reaching the last (third) bolt, cut left at the large "basketball" knob and angle directly toward the anchor using small knobs and sidepull edges. The third bolt can be clipped by leaning way right after gaining the juggy wafer flake, or you can just skip it and climb to the anchor. The protection for the new sequence is entirely adequate with only the first two bolts cli... more >>

Comments: Alex Honnold did a repeat of this route on the last weekend of March 2016. He figured out the moves quickly and redpointed second go, demonstrating his impressive ability on techy granite. He (sensibly) stickclipped the high 1st bolt, which means that anyone else planning to do this route can feel completely justified in doing the same. He did not comment on grade/difficulty.

This is almost certainly the first repeat in quite some time, but is it actually just the first repeat. Had the route p... more >>

Comments: Climbed this on a nice sunny day in November 2015. A few thoughts on approach/descent/gear/etc:

Approach: Of the 3 options, I have done the "4th class" and the "5th class" approach, as described in the Handren guide. The "5th class" approach is definitely superior; it is faster and avoids most of the annoying boulder hopping. I generally am not too psyched about unroped 5th class, but this was super mellow; any steep bits were extremely secure jug hauling. Routefinding w... more >>
