Comments: "Left Slab... isn't presently on MP..."

Your photo is of Left Slab.

Edit: I renamed the route linked above from "Unknown 5.7" to "Left Slab", which should explain this otherwise now non-sensical comment.

Comments: If you were at a hanging belay you weren't on Dag Nasty Part Deux.

Likely you were on Old School, although I don't remember the rock being particularly bad on that one.

FA doesn't want them listed on MountainProject yet.

Comments: According to an older topo I have from several years ago Medulla Oblongata is .12b/c and Cosmic Imperative is .11c.

Note that a few of the grades listed in the topo are a letter grade different than what the grades listed here on MountainProject are; I don't know exactly what the current feeling is on those two particular routes.

Comments: Anchor is chains again; no more mussy hooks.

(So don't forget two draws for the chains, like I did.)

Comments: Hey Mike, I can't make it up this weekend, but the last bolt on the 2nd pitch (1/4" w/Leeper hanger) and the 2nd pitch belay bolt (1/4" w/SMC hanger) both could stand replacing if you get someone up there with you.

Comments: From my experience, I mostly second Andy's rack comments. I jugged through pitches one and two and climbed the rest free so I can't speak to the gear required for the first two pitches, or to what additional gear you might want to aid other pitches.

I had a rack quite similar to what Andy recommends with not quite as many C4s and a few DMM 4CUs making up the difference

I took two sets of DMM alloy offset nuts and never used a piece from the second set. One set would have been sufficient for me... more >>

And there's a white-haired critter up above.

Comments: On the second pitch (not the Dark Horse variation) I placed (as Brian suggests) a #1 and #2 C4. I also placed a #0 C3, a #2 C3, a #7 DMM alloy offset, and slung several chickenheads. There were a couple of spots where I kinda wished I'd brought a #.5 and #.75 C4 as well.

FWIW, on pitch one I found moving from bolt 5 to 6 harder than the traverse after bolt 4.

Comments: Did as Tenesmus suggests and climbed the first pitch after coming down from The Fin Arete. Definitely worth it.

Second pitch looks kinda hard :-)

Comments: As you can see from my suggested rating, I think that this line is considerably harder than .11a. It's definitely harder than any of the other .11a's on this wall, and I think it's harder than The Force.

I fell off of this thing several times before finally redpointing it. I also used different beta through the crux than Darren, because his way is just too hard :-)

Comments: I'm pretty sure the boulder in the trail came down from the south side of the canyon (along with several more large boulders that now reside in the stream bed). If you look up on the west side of the buttress that contains The Hidden and The Balcony you can see broken vegetation and additional evidence of rock fall. There is also the remains of several broken trees in the stream bed.

Comments: I'd looked at this unlovely-appearing line a few times and thought, "Ugh. Why would I want to get on that thing?"

However, my partners wanted to climb it and so I, being obviously a creature of the herd, followed suit.

I was pleasantly surprised and quite enjoyed the line, particularly the start. Definitely worth getting on if you're at The Watchtower.

Comments: Superman got its name from your arms' positions during the crux move (which I, despite several attempts and lots of hanging rest, couldn't even do).
