Comments: Is that King Arthur's Throne are something like that? Interesting tower climb with a SKETCHY rap

Comments: I agree with Salamanizer, the right way through the runout is the route to take.

Comments: Thanks for putting this up RDA! No matter how many times I've climbed it (somewhere in the low teens) I never tire of it.

Lately, I've been traversing to the first belay of Wave Rider, then finishing up the second pitch of that climb.

Fun, fun, fun in the warm California sun!

Comments: Yup, it's no gimme at 5.8 but no way is it a 5.9. What will help your lead head on this one is to head over to Middle Earth and lead Ork, then come back and lead Crack of Dust. Yo 'ol Crack of Dust may even feel 5.7 after that one!

Comments: Yosemitesam is right. The 5.6 friction on the last pitch is waaaay sketchier than the infamous 5.7 runout on pitch 3. One of my favorites in Tuolumne.

Comments: What made up the pucker factor on this climb for me wasn't the short runouts but the buttonhead bolts. Not sure what "Caifura" means, but spicy fo show!

Comments: I remember the scooped face having only 1 bolt, then another bolt being at the top of the face to protect the top out. Though, the bolt up top could also be a one bolt anchor.

Comments: Who knows what I did, except it was a fun finish. When I did Clevenger Route, I checked out the first half of the 2nd pitch of All Along the Watchtower and it looked stellar though a bit sketch!

Comments: Setting up a TR was super easy for us. 3 cordelettes and some biners and we had the power point over the edge, the rope ran freely, and the rope stayed out of the crack.

It's a fun little climb with good rock quality to start, then it slowly deteriorates the higher you climb. I second the gear selection: .75 to a #4 camalot. Bolt protects the exit moves.

Comments: Climbed this today and seems like the 3rd bolt has been replaced. Also, Stewart Green's guide calls this Ralph the Rat.

Comments: Yup, if this was on Wall Street it would have people on it all the time. Good climb to learn to trust your feet on.

Comments: I was here April 3rd and found route names and faux petroglyphs written in chalk all over The Punisher Boulder. Cleaned it up best I could with water. Please respect the rock.

Comments: Climb is a 2 move boulder problem only 8 feet high with a bad landing; we soloed it up and then back down. The highlight of this little adventure is checking out the cable car terminal and surrounding area up top. Maybe a good first tower for beginners.

Comments: A good hike to a nice summit in a very cool location. But, the climbing was meh. The highlight was beers on the summit!

Comments: There is a piece in suspect rock here and there, but overall it takes decent pro. I sewed this up (due to the sandy rock) and placed singles from .5 C4 to a #5 C4. There's even a spot you can place a #6 if you wanted to.

Also, if you fall you're in a tight chimney so odds are you're gonna fall/slide down the chimney than horizontally out, except the squeeze at the top. In a fall you probably won't put too much force on the pro.

Comments: I placed 10 pieces of pro on this climb- all new style BD C4's. I used 2 #1's, 2 #2's, 2 #3's, yep, you guessed it 2 #4's, 1 #5 (though I would've placed a second one if I had it) and 1 #6. You could get by without the #6, but since I almost never get to use mine I took advantage of the climb to bring it outside. The moves were just insecure enough to make me think, but it's the 140' length of offwidth and wide hand moves that make me give it the + rating.

And beware: this climb ate up my frie... more >>

Comments: After Flakes of Wrath my next favorite route at Wall Street; a unique climb with fun moves. I feel the bottom half is technically easy (yup, think foot bridging) but rather physical. The upper half is much less physical but seems to become more tenuous the higher you climb.

Comments: Fun route and a good lieback. Takes good gear the whole way. However, I disagree that this is one of the better routes at Wall Street. It's good but not thaaat good.

Comments: Damn. Glad I'm not doing stand-up comedy in front of this crowd :) I think Sand Felipe is an outstanding climb. In other climbing areas this would one of the best, if not the best, climbs at the crag. Whereas, here it is maybe middle of the pack.

And for the bolting: I don't mind the closely spaced bolts so much but if the reasoning is to make a super safe climb then why did whoever retrobolt not put in another bolt to protect the moves getting to the bolt ladder? Like other people here said, ... more >>
