Comments: Not too good with the editing software on here but you get the idea. There also appears to be a really sweet finger crack just left of Mr. November 2 that could be a really hard classic.

This is where I think Mr. November 2 goes. Lots of potential here.

Comments: Gotta, say that Cronin did a great job on the crux. I had been wanting to do this route since I saw it a couple of years ago when doing some other routes in the area. We did Spicy Thai Tuna which joins with it at two thirds height so I knew the chimney would go. It took everything I had to not show some really good photos of this route. The new book did not have it listed so it piqued my interest even more. It may have been done before but who cares as it is a hell of an adventure. I am goi... more >>

Comments: There is a bolted 50ft roof behind the curtain that has never been climbed. And a couple of routes that were less overhanging that were being worked on that are maybe only 20 ft overhung.

Comments: By "RB" do you mean removable bolt? Kind of a wierd piece to use on a crack route.

Comments: 9+/10a. The R part is only 5.7 or 5.8 the crux is well protected. Bring a couple of big pieces. Great Route.

Comments: Chris, I should read what I write on my phone before submitting. Haha. I fixed the comment above, but I was a little surprised when it showed up in the Rushmore book as a sport route. There are quite a few good placements to be had, but not everyone will feel the need to use them. I would want them to know it can be a very safe route if they so choose.

Comments: Taking A rack to a three definitely makes this route not a PG-13. It was intended to be a mixed route and therefore have very adequate protection.

Comments: Tried to put a lot of the routes on this wall from memory and the pictures I could find. I think I missd a couple on the main wall as I think there is seventeen. There is 7 on the Job Corps wall with one real good route on either side of the Job Corps Crack, 5.7 on the right and 5.8+ on the left that is real fun. Dihedral on the far left is good and my brother Pat did a 5.10 left around the corner that is dirty but with a great steep hands and fist top out.

Comments: This route should be moved to Elkhorn Peak , but I could not figure out how to do it as it is not in Palmer Gultch. The upper two pitches are stellar cracks on great rock.
