Comments: This route is abnormaly sporty for IC. The route is characterized by delicate moves on tight fingers linked by face holds. An exellent line...

Comments: I would suggest taking one or two green aliens for the first couple of moves in the second corner. This route is amazing...FA Steve Petro?

Comments: I rapped the north face with one 70m. The first rap brought us to a ledge about 15-20' above the anchors, and an exposed downclimbed ensued...we also left half the rack on top and were forced to simul Kor-Ingalls to get it. Kor-Ingalls is way easy to rap with one 70m.

Comments: Yeah, I too was under the impression that this thing was first sent in the 90's. Its featured in that article "A hard crack is good to find" that was in a 97' rock and ice. somthing like that...

Comments: If you lack any form of slab skills (such as myself), expect to put in a V5 effort to get anywhere on this one.

Comments: I thought the first 15' feet of rattly fingers off the pillar were way effin hard . once the crack went splitter, i felt it eased up. Felt a bit harder than Slice'n Dice

Comments: I had a friend take a 30' ground fall on to his back from the 11+ start when three cams ripped. They were most likey placed poorly, but be warned, a big fall onto small gear is a bad idea.

Comments: I got my rope stuck in the crack after rapping this pitch. I had a fun time re-climbing the pitch on 2 pieces of gear

Comments: I'm not sure if I put this in the right area, but this problem is just too good, and it sees very little action.

Comments: I believe you are reffering to "Failsafe," a line that breaks left off of "birds nest." I could be wrong, its been a while.

Comments: Is this that steep, laser-cut corner crack? If so, I got on this thing thinking it was wide hands- I ended up getting worked trying to do do kick-throughs/ bumping handstacks up the whole thing. OW all the way. Bring a (new) #5 Camalot for the top. Hightops, pants, long sleeve shirt highly recomended. Six stars.

Comments: Be warned that the last move has spit off many unsuspecting climbers. While the move feels quite solid, I have heard of at least 3 different people taking the fall and fuck'n up their ankles.
