Comments: Jim B. and I led this climb about ten years ago. I highly recommend this quality roof crack, short but sweet.

Comments: Jason S., I know we haven't been up to the CROSSWINDS in a couple of years, but do you think there are bolts on that proud, trad, headpoint? We should probably spray more, eh?

Comments: Awwwww, it hit came to me, this crag has also been known as Crosswinds, according to Kimball....

Comments: Aren't there some existing Scott Kimball routes on the south end of this crag? Also seem to remember finding a fixed pin on the south face of the pinnacle like formation. Trying to remember what he was calling it several years ago?

Comments: I think I looked down on this face while on a ridge scramble this summer, what I saw was really impressive, would you access this from Sky Pond cirque?

Comments: I guess I'm out of the loop, but where is this slab that Spanky bolted? I hope it's not just L. or R. of the Winds of Fortune 1st pitch. I toproped the L. hand line last spring, noting the holds probably wouldn't last more than a few ascents, [definitely] not worth adding bolts. The rock quality on the R. hand line didn't appear much better.

Comments: Pitch 6: Lieback up a left facing flake, right off the belay, heading towards a large roof directly above. Climb up to the roof and out the left side, then angle right, following discontinous cracks, to the small ledge with a bolt. 110', 5.10+ R/X, with some dubious rock quality. Don't go out the right side of the roof. My partner attempted this, after much deliberation over Ryan's route description for this pitch, and found extremely bad rock, no gear and difficult climbing. Overall, good... more >>

Comments: Alan, are you wearing cut off, [Daisy Duke] shorts in the photo at the belay above the crux below, and if you are do they require special underwear?

Comments: AC, the pitch you were on used to be the first pitch of Bosch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, it was chopped quite a few years ago. The bolts you saw and clipped are some that have been replaced by locals in an effort to fix up the route.

Comments: The lone bolt on the 2nd pitch replaced on 3-17-05. Looks like someone felt bad about the retrobolt added to the first pitch and removed it.

Comments: The first bolt on pitch 7 of this route is missing the hanger. Found this out last July while climbing Three Stoners, no way to back it up that I could find. A fall here would land you right on the belay.

Comments: The belay station after the crux traverse has been updated with 2 new 3/8'' bolts, noticed this after an ascent on 01-02-05, but I think they were replaced last fall. I think it now works best to combine pitches 4 and 5 as one, then an easy scramble to the rap ledge.

Comments: Replaced the three 1/4'' bolts on the Kite slab on 10-20-04, all were left in the original positions.

Comments: You can place a great small stopper from a good stance just off the ground.
