Comments: Climbed this route yesterday and had a lot of fun BUT I absent-mindedly left my anchor cordalette and smart belay at the top (on a tree in the gully after the final 4th class pitch). If someone finds them and is willing to mail them to me I'll pay for the shipping and be eternally grateful! Or I'll be back in Red Rock in about two weeks. Send me an email at jkenderes@gmail.com. Thanks!

Comments: This route has a red tag on the first bolt. Does anyone know why?

Comments: I agree with the 5.8 rating, it's now been listed as "Born on the 4th of July".

Comments: Better than K-2 in my opinion. Seems deserving of its own anchors.

Comments: Does anyone have a name/FA info for the route just to the right of this one which shares the anchors of this route.

Comments: Right, maybe I wasn't being clear. My point was that if you're placing cams then it's not really a sport climb and if sport climbers show up with just a sport rack then the route is probably too dangerous for a 5.10a leader. This is unfortunate because they would be missing out on a great climb! For me, a #1 C4 and a couple nuts provided great protection.

Comments: Awesome, long route!!! My favorite at Wheeler!

First bolt is ridiculously high though. I've never placed gear but fortunately a friend who was with us had some so I placed a #1 C4 and three stoppers before the first bolt (too many I know) in the hope that if I fell at least one peace would hold. I would suggest that this route be re-categorized as trad (or at least be given an R rating since a fall at the first bolt would likely result in serious injury) if it can't be adequately protecte... more >>
