Comments: One of my favorites. Nice climbing down low on ledges that look a litttle bit better than they are, to a balance crux with interesting one and two finger pockets. Topped off with an easy, but thoughtful and fun finish. If this climb is open and I'm walking past it, I always stop to climb it.

Also, though it's a mellow grade and the first bolt is down low, I usually stick clip: that landing is ugly and the start can be tricky!

Comments: Matt if you are still interested (or if anyone else wants to know where these routes are), I have a hand-drawn topo I'd be happy to share with you.

Comments: The anchors above and to the right are for the adjacent climb "A Bit Short".

EDITED TO ADD: Also, I thought the tiny headwall on the last pitch was really fun, and the routefinding through the water streaks wasn't too terrible.

Comments: M Sprague: Just brush it in a little more. Nobody will find it! ;)

S Neoh: that trail passes the cliff band Jeffrey describes, then drops you down on the top of Infinity Wall, right by the Ass, Gas, and Grass cracks. Though far from classics, they are still pretty nice short routes very close together. It's worth seeing but I wouldn't make a special trip.

Comments: A quick check of the guidebook lists the FA as John Christian and Arnold Wexler in 1971. If an admin or the original submitter gets a chance, it may be nice to update the route with that info.

Route submitters: please don't forget the FA party. It's important!

Comments: I found this to be a fun route. Climbed it for the first time today since it's usually wet. Had a 4 year old with us so we needed a low grade route and went for this one. It's lousy for short people, but otherwise was worthwhile. Sufficiently complex and thoughtful for the grade, I'm not sure you'd find another 5.5-5.6 route that keeps your attention quite the same way. It's no classic, but if you haven't climbed it and its dry, then you should give it a go.

Comments: Soon, this route is really really nice, if a little sharp. A long, fun romp that left me with bloody fingertips! I enjoyed it more than Chloe's Breakfast Special, if that's the one you mean. I thought the movement through the crux was slightly more interesting and had better flow.

Comments: I wanna hear the backstory. Did y'all argue over what the route was named and then not consult the guidebook?

Comments: Hahah! Excellent idea about the frying pan.

In all seriousness: the lock is likely very temporary, until we can convince Sprague to go up there with a digging bar and drill and make it safe again...

There is a large suspended boulder that is still moving up there. I think once it falls, the situation may stabilize as bit.

For what it's worth, there was a party on the fin when I went up to padlock the bolt and post the sign.

Comments: You forgot the part about riding a cheese grater for 200 feet before taking flight! Definitely a nice route to solo, provided that you keep the same focus as you would on a harder route!

Comments: NICE! Glad to see pics. Saw you in the lot asking about the First Canine Ascent. My bet is you bagged it.

Now: can you post more detailed pics of that K9 harness rig?

Comments: Such a good description. I found it to be a "Wait, what's this thing graded again?" kind of moment.

Comments: Haha, it ended with a send, so yeah no harm done. To be fair, he said he wouldn't do it that way again, and we worked out the right beta later. :) But wow. What an entertaining pic I ended up with!

Comments: I want a shot like this from higher up: like from the top of one of the new windmills, so I can draw a supertopo on it. :) Nice shot, Ladd. Gives a great overview.

Comments: I climbed the route today. There are two scary loose blocks marked with X between the 3rd and 4th bolts, but it turns out they are cammed in place pretty tight (as in, I tried and failed to pull them out). I did not find the wiggly flake at the 4th bolt, but be careful.

Comments: I think Brad's comments on routes are useful history, too. It seems like he's also here to set the record straight on some elements of history, which I also support and applaud.

But the public arguing is embarrassing: maybe it ought to be limited to the forums, where people expect that kind of thing.

In any case: thanks very much, Jeff, for restoring Brad's historical narratives.

Comments: Changing my rating from 10a to 9+: as it turns out, I just had the wrong beta and not enough energy last year when I tried it. :) Nice variation, Matt.

Comments: First time on this route today. Very impressed. I liked it better than Lonesome Dove, though not more than Junco. The crux was a puzzler, but I got it worked out trying a few different sequences. Very nice. Recommended.
