Comments: Climbed there the weekend of 8/3/13. No problems at all with local shenanigans as mentioned above. In fact it was quiet---REALLY quiet! Great camping, no one bothered us. We basically had the whole place to ourselves Fri and Sat. Fun, compact climbing area, very easy to get a lot in. Routes are shorter but still enjoyable. Like a mix between Maple and Shelf (area-wise, at least.) Great place!

Comments: I'd be curious to hear if lots of stuff has broken on this climb. I did it on Friday and it felt epic-hard! I was definitely tired, but usually can get up low 11s with relative ease. To me this verged on 12-territory.....

Comments: This is an incredible climb! I'm not sure if it just suited me and my partner's climbing styles, but we both agreed it is definitely in the top 3 sport climbs either of us has ever done. Long, flowy, sustained, techy and super-exposed feeling. All the holds are just good enough. Would be a tricky onsight. WOW!!!

Comments: Ok, thanks for the info! We were using the mobile app, but maybe we were looking at the listings wrong (or the heat was getting to us....haha!).

Comments: Agreed. The whole route is quite difficult and funky. I thought it was more along the lines of 11c/d.

Comments: Is there a new route between this one and Dude's Dihedral that's not listed? I got on this thinking it was the 11b (Mofo Party Plan thing) and had a heck of a time. Whoops! BIG reaches, pretty height-dependent. I had a really hard time at the bottom balancy mantle, then pulling the final roof/headwall. Agree with the other comments...pretty solid 11d I would say.

Comments: I'm not in the greatest climbing shape at the moment, but this felt pretty hard for 11b. Very sustained. Maybe I wasn't reading some of moves right, but it felt tricky for sure.

Comments: Just my opinion, but I would highly advise NOT doing a double rap from the very top (down to the 2nd pitch anchors, if I remember correctly.) I've gotten my ropes stuck doing this rap 2 different times now. If I were to do it again I'd do a single rap down to the 3rd pitch anchors---where you belay for the 'sport pitch' going to the top---and then go from there. Kind of annoying since it's a short rap, but it might save you a lot of time and energy from having to climb back up to untangle your r... more >>

Comments: This route felt haaard. 11b for me. A lot more OW (and squeeze chimney!) than I was expecting. Getting over the roof is tough for those with smaller hands and who can't really reach the foothold out and right of the roof. I basically aided the thing. Above the roof is some pretty hollow, loose rock, and heady climbing to the squeeze chimney right at the top (which I liebacked, by the way!) Interesting route.....not sure I'd do it again, but it does have some good climbing, especially on the lowe... more >>

Comments: Just my personal opinion, but this job would be great for a couple or two really close friends. You're gone a long time and there are many...distractions along the way. Good luck to whoever gets it in 2013, it'll be a once in a lifetime opportunity for sure!!!

Comments: Maybe it's because I'm completely out of climbing shape (!), but everything I got on at this wall felt pretty stiff for the grade. But who knows, maybe I wasn't what I thought I was on! Reminded me a lot of some walls in Boulder Canyon. Cool little spot if you're in the area, gets nice afternoon shade too.

Comments: Is this the furthest climb on the right hand side of the wall (4 bolts and anchors, I believe)? Some locals we talked to said this used to be a 5.9 or so, but a hold broke near the top and so getting from the 3rd to 4th bolt is significantly harder now. I agree. The beginning is easy, but the last 10 feet of that route felt more like an 11- (at least) to me!! Weird fingercrack seam and smeary feet. Pumpy too.

Comments: I don't believe it has been sent, although I'm not 100% about that. If it has, I'd love to hear more about it, that would be very proud!!!
