Comments: Worth doing if you are camping in site 4. Big gear helps for a TR anchor. Descent requires some easy but exposed downclimbing.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route. Steep and pumpy with contrived moves and numerous hands free rests when you need them. Lots of fun.

Comments: As the guidebook says, it's more fun than it looks and not for a leader at their limit. Awkward in places with some fun jamming in between. You skip the second pitch and rap off a tree to the right.

Comments: The route is fun, a little dicey at the crux bulge and above. If you use the crack to the left of the bulge, there is potential for a nasty fall.

Comments: One of the best 5.10 routes in CCC. Fantastic!

Comments: Great route. Combined P2/3, no problem. The topout arete is amazing, and P1 offers some nice crack climbing. We started in the crack to the right of the bushes.

Comments: Very nice route, found it to be sustained. It was quite wet today. The finish is committing, and small gear placements are there at the top but not obvious.

Comments: Really fun. One of those routes that you walk by many times on the trail and smile at. More stars if it was longer.

Comments: Did the 5.10a variation today. Great route, especially the upper section. Bird shit was not an issue at all. Perhaps the recent rains cleaned it up.

Comments: Really enjoyed this route, did the BoT variation. P1-P3 felt consistent in difficulty. The bulges and roofs are all really fun but may be challenging for the grade if you are not familiar with Eldo style climbing. As mentioned above, the topout is amazing and quite possibly the best vista in the canyon. The views of Redgarden wall are jaw dropping.

Beware that this route is heavily occupied most of the time.

Comments: This route is fun and has a couple of nice hand jams. If you want a greater challenge, you can disregard the face holds and just use the crack.

Comments: Super fun the entire route. There were 3 stuck cams in the upper section as of today. One of them is probably retrievable with the proper tools.

Comments: I agree with the previous comments, fun route but not a good choice for new leaders. I found the second clip in particular to be awkward, and a fall from there would be hazardous.

Comments: It's easy to set up a TR and give everyone at the campsite a turn. Really fun.

Comments: This route is terrific! It has a fun hand crack, adventurous slab climbing, and one of the best views in the park from the top.

It's best to be comfortable on J-Tree slab before trying to lead P2. It's a tad harder than 'walk on the wild side' and similar to the topout on 'the flake'.
