Comments: The seam above the ledge is what I meant ... no pro, and ledge-fall!

Comments: Whatever you do, don't climb the seam that's over there on the left. Trust me on that.

Comments: I don't think there is any gear available besides what you get that ends up being at/below your feet as you reach for jugs.

Comments: Both of those options aren't great - the hanging belay is what Seth said, and it's also pretty easy to lock yourself down if you try to link it and fail. A third thing to consider is doing a very short first pitch, then linking the last two.

Comments: That P1 rappel pinch eats slings for breakfast -- they HAVE to be replaced often. Inspect carefully.

Comments: I've worked on making sure every route has FA & descent information -- nice to see it noticed ;-). Glad you got down ok in the end.

Comments: While it's a good route for a new 2nd, it's NOT a good route for a new leader. As a well-experienced leader needing a vertical nap, I was simultaneously sleepy and horrified on this route -- very sparse pro. But very easy. Just don't fall.

Comments: Micheal G and others - I don't boulder myself, so I don't have an opinion on organization. However, paralleling the guidebook is probably best. You can add areas (and I see that you have); let me know (email me through here - I do check that email more often) if something's not working for you to organize as needed. Thanks for your contributions! Best, JSH

Comments: Rich, what was the 'BITD' Uberfall route? I know it involved a drop to the earth from a hang, but I can't remember where it was.

I added this as a route not to set the record straight, but to describe the common descent in order to link to it from all the routes in the area. Hopefully to give a few people an idea to walk off every now & then.

And for what it's worth, I've seen a rope over it! Both in the context of protecting a nervous downclimbing adult, and for a kid's TR. Not sure what S... more >>

Comments: Kevin, that's what I've most often done, and it is nice. The nose is nice & a bit exposed, and you can also climb the open-book to the right at the top, all about the same grade.

It's possible to link the whole route in one pitch, if you sling things very carefully and follow the nose at the top.
