Comments: Bouldery start. Felt 5.5. Used 2x #5 C4 sized for the whole thing, just walked them up. Used #2,3,4 for an anchor.

Comments: My preferred way to protect the start is to slot a large hex over my head while standing at the bast of the crack. You can then slot a fist (meat stopper) vertically right above the hex. Way bomber.

Comments: Good route. Getting up into the chimney start is the crux. Bring knee pads. The upper low angle grovel crack is a hoot. Large hexes can be better than cams for pro due to the irregular crack. Save a few 0.5-1# pieces for building an anchor. Probably the most physical 5.5 I have ever climbed.

Comments: Used less wide stuff than I expected, a singles form 3" to 7" is plenty. Still found the need for #0.75-#2,which surprised me. Getting from the "trough" on to the face is indeed a bit exciting, the upper slab is run-out but no big deal. Would do it again. Bat Crack is probably a good warm up right next door (another gravely/grovely good time romp)

Comments: Extra comments (Beta above is awesome):

Planck's Roof Variation is an excellent alternative to P2&3. Take 2x #5 (old school size), 2-3 #4.5 (old school side) and a couple #4's for the roof proper. At the end it is necessary to leap frog the big green cams, so you have to zip these back to your partner for him to re-aid. This variation is wild, and avoids the wettest pitches in spring.

P7's hateful flair can be avoided. Stay in the main crack , and don't go into the flair.... more >>
