Comments: Hey Darren,
I made a mistake and put Brent and Dave as the FA team in the book. I see you fixed it to the right FA team of Bill and Rusty. Sorry about that. KK

Comments: This is a photo of the Peavine Slab in Peavine Cove. Looks like the start of "Overboard". Peavine Dome is off of the Peavine Trail about a quarter mile north and is land locked. Nice Photo!

Comments: Nicely done Gabe!

I originally did this route in 1996 or 97 with Sal Clarizio and Todd Burke. I went back to try and get it clean with Bill Garrett a year later and dislocated my shoulder on the traverse. At that time we climbed it a little differently. Pitch one 5.8 climbing from the ground to the ledge and up to the left side of the roof, nice spot for a hanging belay. The second pitch was the traverse. The crack gets a little seepy after a rain. The third pitch was rated 5.9. This is the top... more >>

Comments: Thanks Larry, just trying to keep up! Your/our upper pitch is spectacular, bold and a bit loose. The lower section of that pitch looks scary. You three were surely on a mission. I guess sometimes you get into it and there's no turning back!

Comments: Wow! just did this route yesterday, without knowing anything about it. So, we started to the east below the notch between the tower and Middle Mesa.
P1 We climbed a 40' pitch of 5.8 in a stem box using a pretty nice crack to protect friable surrounding rock. This pitch got us into the notch. After reading this post I know you can just hike around the west side of the tower and scramble into the notch to start. Our first pitch was pretty nice though.
P2 We climbed the steep crack as described a... more >>

Comments: Hey Greg the original route follows a crack up to the piton and continues up a crack left of the bolted line. The bolted line is much newer and seems easier. The bolts on the new line are poorly placed. Fun line though.

Comments: Hi Derek, the route has become more difficult over time as some holds broke since the original ascent. I put it as 10d in the new guide.

Comments: Leo Henson did the first ascent in the 80's. The route is a little different down low however the top section (crux) is relatively the same. It really gets hard after the horizontal. Sterling Murray led it when he was 15 so Leo down rated it to 12d. Could be harder now though.

Comments: Just added a new route to the left of The Dam Crack. "Haywire" 5.10b. Climb face/arete to the left of the crack past 3 bolts merging with a chimney on the arete. The step across to the chimney is well protected and the climbing above involves steep hands and fingers. The route eventually merges with the Dam Crack and makes for a spectacular line. Stay in the left crack as long as possible to get the best the wall has to offer. KK

Comments: I just put in two new glue-ins so the TR situation is manageable with two shoulder length slings or a cordelette. KK

Comments: Pinnacle has two old rusty bolts at the midpoint traverse and really should not be considered adequate. Hand sized gear is available between these two fixed pieces. The route should be done in one very long awkward pitch.

Comments: All of the bolts on this route were replaced with 3"long 1/2" stainless steel bolts by the Prescott Climber's Coalition thanks to a grant by the ASCA. The "sharp" hangers are gone.
