Comments: Agree that the last bolt is not ideal.

Move the bolt? Add one more bolt above the transition?

Feedback welcome - thanks for your thoughts, Todd

Comments: "I'd also give this climb a PG13 rating..."

FYI, you can easily stem back onto the ledge if you have any trepidation climbing or clipping "on the face" anywhere during the first three bolts.

Comments: Nice! I usually take the bit out of the drill before moving on so if I whip...just sayin'.

Solid work, Vic!

Comments: Getting after it, Jeff - Nice! Clever, as well.

I am on a moratorium since home improvements... ;)

Living vicariously, though!

Can't wait to check some of the new stuff...

Comments: The reach above will test your mettle!

This route is closed for climbing, FYI.

It may have even been shotcreted by BC Rail due to repeated trespassing?

Comments: Anyone know what the 6-bolt route just up-hill of "Lost & Found" is? Super fun, exposed diheral-to-arete. Two stars, at least!

Comments: We felt it was harder than 5.9, but yeah - "Old School" 5.9 is fair.

Doubles in the 2-3" range, plus a 3.5" was handy for us scaredy cats.

Agree with mac - the 6-bolt sport route to the right is exposed and fun!

Comments: LOOSE ROCK WARNING: If you are planning on climbing at Highland Wall while parties are on the super-popular North Face Route, it is advisable to bring a helmet and stay close to the wall when belaying. We had 3 incidents of rock-fall from high above yesterday, barely missing me, and a small rock actually hit my wife on the head.

Additionally, because of the wind, ledges and multiple parties, we are going to bring walkie talkies (and start early) for the North Face climb.

Comments: Did this climb today - super fun and techy dihedral. I disagree with CMiller (above) in that I thought the initial sequence was bolted well.

I also thought it was way better than the one star everyone heretofore has given it.

The guidebook says "gear to 2 inches" - that's not right by my measure.

The largest piece I used was a .5" - I would suggest doubles on small TCU's, as well as a larger stopper or two.

Comments: Thanks, Todd! Updated. Yes, ran into Jeff Neer - he also redid the start of "Exit Stage Left" with John Sherman. A different steep start and 4 stars now, IMO.

Comments: Replaced the "industrial" gated hooks with new Mussy Hooks today.

Also, replaced the old quick-links with new plated, tested ones from France.

Thanks to the ASCA for the hardware!

Comments: We have recently added a kid & pet-friendly crossing (just below the Narrows), and 7 new routes to this area. The new climbs are moderate (from 5.3 to 5.10b), making "Pink Face Area" an even better beginner area.

Please stay on established trails.
