Comments: Very steep for a 10a, overhanging for a majority of the route, big holds where you want them.

Comments: Excellent route, climb up and right out of the chimney (just above the bush) to the beautiful corner. Great gear once you get into the corner. There seemed to be no worthwhile gear until you get into the actual corner, by then you are a ways off the ground.

One of the best 9s I have done on the Pass. Farther left is Landslide and fun 5.7.

Comments: I also see a possible FA out the left side of his lower lip through some vegetation on his upper lip to a left-leaning dihedral just out from his nose. Then it could link up to the previous "Cigar Sombrero" route.

Comments: Those overhanging sombrero moves look stout, the pockets are not obvious from a distance.

Comments: Jefe and El Guapo get philosophical. Those are probably the deepest thoughts of the entire movie:)

Comments: Fortunately the "wet spot" evaporated quickly. Nothing there when I led the pitch.

Comments: Unreal, one of the most interesting alpine routes I have done, especially at "5.6", big exposure. Although if you are a 5.6/7 leader some of the exposed traversing moves may feel a lot harder than 6.

Did this route with my 15 year old son last week and it was a blast. Get started early as many of the upper pitches are best done short, so they add up. Also the standard descent takes some time. Personally I would not want to get caught descending in the dark as it is quite exposed.

With that... more >>

Comments: Spent last week in the Cirque, great weather until early Thursday evening and then some snow. The bugs were pretty minimal prior to that so the cold weather Friday and Saturday may knock them way down.

This was my first trip into the Cirque and it is stunning! Took my 15 year old son in for his first real taste of alpine climbing, he loved it. Wolf's Head is one of the coolest 5.6's I have ever been on, massive exposure for sure, a must do.

Comments: Too bad it is not 40 feet longer, it is fun climbing, glad you enjoyed it. BJ had everything in place, hurt his finger so I was able to swoop in for the FA (with him belaying):)

Comments: This is a beautiful pitch that can be done in one nice long run or broken into two shorter pitches. The rock is perfect granite and gneiss, some smearing, some edging and some really big holds make for a fun 150+ feet of climbing.

Two single rope raps get you to the ground, big fat chain at the anchors.

Comments: Nice short route, some good exposure off to the left. The climb faces away from you as you hike up to it.

Comments: Nice route for teaching multi-pitch leading, etc. Good gear supplemented by bolts. Last pitch will be much less stressful for the 5.7 leader with a #4 Camalot. A bit brushy on the second pitch, but will clean up with traffic. Thank you Josh and Amos for taking the time to put this in.

Comments: I think the crux is the bulging hand crack on the last pitch, more like 5.11 to me. The moves on the previous pitch seemed much easier than pulling through the bulge. Fun route that gets you to the rim. You can link pitch 1 and 2.

Comments: Tobin's first 11 sport lead! Fun route some loose choss at the start and then sweet rock above.

Comments: Fun variation, easier than it appears from the ground. Positive holds out to the crack and then easy up to the anchor.

As you pull right to the crack, you will need a purple or green camalot. Move up to a horizontal and plug in a #3 and cruise up the to anchor. Did this again on 10/8 and in my opinion is more enjoyable than the normal Flakes finish.

Comments: An Alien will work best for the slot below the bolt, but also a yellow C3 does okay. The move up to where you can clip the bolt (painted) is definitely easier if you have a long reach. You do not want to blow this move without the cam or stick clip, nasty landing in my opinion.

Comments: A very enjoyable and long, for the area, route. A few bolts a couple of cams and beautiful rock. The last 10 feet have some potential loose stuff, tread carefully as you near the top anchors. Best staging area at the Narrows, gets sun in the morning.

Comments: Easier with a long reach, jam a hand in the pod and reach up for a good hold. I think it is a 10a move.
