Comments: This is a really unique route. If you don't mind natural pro (horns) and really fun climbing, this route is awesome. People make it out to be more serious than it is. The climbing is not too hard and the gear is all there. I typically stay away from R routes, but this isn't that bad.

1st Pitch: Head up low angle ramp from the left side. A couple places for tcu's in seam. Clip 2 new bolts on steeper wall, yellow and orange metolious tcu in flake. Traverse out to small roof. # 3 or 4 BD cam in ro... more >>

Comments: There was a brief comment about bivying on the rocker-block, can two people bivy on it without a portaledge? Would both be able to lay down, or would one have to sleep sitting up? Does anybody a have a good picture of the top of the rocker-block?

Comments: My question is about the Hollow Flake pitch. If one had a Valley Giant, how high up the pitch would it be usable and which size of VG would one need.

That is my question, not if it is worth carrying the thing up the route in your haulbag, or if someone should just man up and accept the runout, or if Big Bro's are lighter, cheaper, and/or better.

Comments: Is this route really a 5.12 C? It felt easier compared to other 5.12 routes in the area, does anybody have any comments that they would like to share on how they felt this route was rated?

Comments: A while ago my friend and I did this route. After pitch 6 we anchored at the trees and then went for pitch 7. I traversed left and then found some fixed anchors, the travese was really short. Then I climbed up this dihedral that had this pillar type feature about 15 feet up. Then it went up left over this ledge and I built an anchor in a crack I could stand in. From there I think we could have scambled down this chimney and gotten to the scramble to Schoolroom reppell, but we kept going, up... more >>
