Comments: Left crack is very good. First 30' to roof is pretty stupid. You may be able to get a blue ball nut or two before the piton that moves when weighted. A #5 and #4 gets you passed the roof. It's a lot of 2's until the top. Another 5 might be good. Really surprising how great the route is.

Comments: Can y'all motherfuckers please stop scratching the date, your initials, or other trashy miscellanea into the route? Looks like someone guided the bottom rung of the jeep safari up this thing.

Comments: So maybe I'm kinda fragile, but the rap anchor is pretty bogus. We downclimbed the route about 30 feet and made a two stopper anchor to rappel from. Climb goes at 5.9ish and is really good!

Comments: Three feet off the ground? Shit we were drinking beer and smoking weed above I can't remember what pitch. Times are good on the Priest. Simon's the man. Nice Knockers.

Comments: Those piton holes on the last pitch are pretty retarded. I'd hesitate to call them usable.

Comments: Bring four cams. A 0.5 for the crack 15 feet off the ground. You'll use a 2 and 3 for the "chimney" and a 1 to back up the anchor on p1. You'll reuse the 3 for your only piece just below the summit. I wouldn't consider taking more than this in the future.

Comments: Double set to four. No anchor on top of first pitch but easy to make with a c4 #3 and #4. Fixed hex is still there high up. New piece of rope added to anchor on 4/13.
