Gear beta. I thought the blue/green Alien protected the crux pretty reasonably. I did use an afternoon to redpoint while clipping bolts. Came back a few weeks later and gave it one gear beta burn then

Comments: Visited this area for the first time this weekend. From what I can tell, it's likely this will become a popular area due to a nice selection of quality climbs.

The approach trail that seems to be used the most will deteriorate and erode quickly. Another 30 or 40 ft further is a much more gentle slope on stable, rocky terrain that will be much more sustainable.

Wanting to just start a conversation and see what would be the best way to facilitate a change of trail.

Comments: Went and gave this the ole college try. The 5.12 pitch is absolutely amazing - sustained, beautiful movement on great holds, a four star pitch by itself. The crux pitch was nails. Definitely above my pay grade and honestly don't have much place talking about it (but stoke is high and will anyways). Was able to free all but one move up to the 7th bolt ,which I think would be 13a-ish on its own, and that's not even the meat of the difficulties. Skin was definitely a factor due to major flailage.

Comments: Wild, rowdy, and awesome!

I found this to be quite a serious outing with many no fall moments on challenging terrain. I did the route as depicted in Vic's guidebook, including the straight up dihedral variation on P4 and independent 5.12a finish. The dihedral needs traffic but has some fantastic, however runout, climbing. The new independent pitch has a runout and insecure 11+ section on pegmatite with very serious fall consequence, capital R rated. Bolt 10 or so ft below and a fair distance... more >>

Comments: One of the bigger rest holds about 3/4 up on the first pitch came off. It was very loose already when we got to it. Good 3/4 pad crimp is left in its place, however on the other side of the arete and lower. And the rest you could get there is no longer. Still goes, but this pitch may be a bit harder now, maybe in the 12+ range (compared to the original grade) due to no rest and a bigger move off a smaller hold.

Comments: 12+ seems fair. 2nd 5.12 pitch felt significantly harder than the 1st, maybe even 13a. This may be a height/reach matter though. Regardless, cool rock climb. That first 5.12 pitch sure is a blast and very memorable.
