Comments: Given 7a (V6) by the Scott Noy guidebook, but considered tough for the grade which I thought it was.

Comments: A broken hold between the large hueco and the lip makes this problem more difficult than before and adds another large reach move. Too low to warrant 4 stars.

Comments: Jake, see Jason's comment two above yours. In addition to Jason I know of at least two other people that have gone this way. You will need to do some research though to figure out where to park and where to hike over the ridge. If I'm not mistaken you will want to head for the side valley that the Renaissance wall is in. Maybe Jason can provide some clarification.

Right at a Y junction in the trail leading away from one of the camp spots, maybe 50 feet...nice.

Comments: At this time the anchor bolts just have quick-links on them which, if you thread both to clean and lower will horribly kink your rope. It would be nice to get a second link on each bolt, some chain (an odd number of links, 5 or 7) on each or some fixed biners to make using both bolts more reasonable.

Comments: You could always peruse Benjamin's submitted photos and start slandering hit photos of climbers and possibly even himself not wearing helmets, there are plenty.

Alison was working on a new fad at the Dungeon last time I saw her, helmeted tennis shoe ascents...

Comments: I have always linked the last two pitches, though I may have always had a 70m rope.

As far as rapping from the 4th. I've done MM with John K in 3 pitches, I want to say that we took a 70m and had to do a little simu-climbing to link the first 2, just up onto the ledge before you move left to the main line, not sure which pitch this means that you would come up short on though, if it was the 1, i.e.: getting to the ground it probably would not be that big a deal.

Comments: Matthias,
I have always climbed the large left facing dihedral and that is really not that bad, not really sure what is out to the right of that but the rock is reasonably good in the corner and there are ample opportunities for protection.
When in the corner the 5.10 variation is pretty obvious about 20' out to the left on the face going over a small roof. Though I did not like it as much as the corner.
