First pitch of Inferno, as best i could figure out. Follow the line of the rope to the right then back left. Route finding was a bit difficult.

It's a butt shot, but it shows the line of the first pitch of Alphonse pretty well. From here, i traversed left to a stance and did a hanging belay because all the gear was knee-height.

Comments: Some of the best rock at the gap, climb is stout too, the 5.6 may be a bit of a sandbag.

Comments: Climbed this today. The hardware still looks good (shiny galvanized) but the cable is looking pretty corroded. Might need a replacement with some new cable - Galv or stainless this time. (Or a more permanent solution?). I know I won't make it back to do this personally, but maybe someone else could take it up? I think it's 8-10 feet of 5/16 cable.

Comments: The advice Brandon gives below is potentially dangerous. From the anchors atop triumvirate, two 60m ropes reach the ground with little to spare. I estimate 180 feet from anchors to ground. A single 70m rope will leave you 65 feet up.

If you only have one rope, carefully rappel down The Rib, which has mid wall anchors.

Comments: Took my 3.5 year old boys here for their first time climbing. I had no issue scrambling up, down and around this in my hiking boots to build them a little anchor. It's not a bad little wall for a kids intro. The rocky approach and return was much more of a challenge. Pro is sparse, most of the cracks flare. If you follow natural weaknesses, it's 5.0, but if you try a plumb vertical line, probably a little harder. Wall is maybe 40' tall, about 45 degree slabbed in.

Comments: Yes, but it's very close and you have to do it correctly. See comments under The Rib.

Comments: Effective June 2nd, 2017, the closure is lifted. The falcons were again unsuccessful.

Comments: I'm sure it has been at some point, but your nutcraft better be good. I haven't revisited P1 and 2 in a long time, but I like to link into P3 from High Falls. The P3 crux is a committing move pulling out of an alcove right over a ledge, and I always protect it with a fingers size cam, getting a nut there could be tough. There also isn't much gear after the crux and as you top out. The picture above shows exiting left to a lower ledge instead of going straight up p3.

Also of note, t... more >>

Comments: I was on rappel and I tried to get the camera as far from the wall as possible. Also using a pretty wide angle lens which might be exagerating perspective it a bit. I think the composition was just luck though.

Comments: CVRIV - Not really - It's definitely a traditional climbing area, and most of the routes go completely top to bottom (200 feet), with no fixed intermediate anchors. There are only a handful of bolts on either side of the gap, most are just for rappels and require 2 ropes.. There may be a spot or two you can scramble to a tree and set something up, but i wouldn't recommend it. On the PA side, there is some access via the catwalk onto a ledge about 40' up the practice face, it is ... more >>

Comments: I can't tell if sonething has changed on route, but the belay looks like it's still there. The possible scar looks about 30 feet right of the balay.
