Comments: I'm sorry were you waiting for a response?

The description says pitch one is 5.7 to access the crack. I assumed that meant the second pitch was the crack. Then you get into some other stuff and head up although I remember you saying that the crack ends at the top of it where we anchored in the picture and you don't really go further then that. So I don't know who's wrong but it doesn't really ma... more >>

Comments: I was trying to go from my photos and your description + topo and I wasn't sure if I had the route figured out correctly. Is there is? Yellow dots denote where I figured pitches would end.

Comments: Actually I've seen this route many times and its always looked like an awesome adventure but I've been too focused on getting other areas. This year I finally got to get into Hatcher and gather a bunch more information and regardless of being on my list of routes to go climb to put in the book I never got to it but I'd like to add it in regardless. So I'm putting this route into the book. I'm not ... more >>

Comments: Climbed third generation. Looked over and wondered why someone would be so cheap. Figured it was a joke.

Comments: I'm sure you could use the money since I've seen the gear you're putting in out there.

Comments: Has bolts on it that look pretty good then the anchor apparently is a bolt missing the hanger with a nut slung and a quicklink on it. I have no idea why.

Comments: Whats up with this climb? It starts out fun then disappears. There's no anchor and it ends at a place where you can't walk off or rappel without leaving any gear behind. Your description says 25ft and I'm not sure even where the anchor would be at that point. I ended up climbing up through the left hand corner and a giant block squeeze and then coming across the left face at the second pitch bolt of 3rd Generation. By then I was complet... more >>

Comments: I'm not sure I'd consider this pitch 35m. Unless you're talking about going all the way to the top of the formation but isn't the anchor on the top of the first ledge?

I've always wanted to put this climb in the book as well as others from the wall. I feel like it would be great if someone took on the project of actually documenting and printing the larger alpine climbs and adven... more >>

Comments: Climbed the offwidth crack portion on upper area which you list as very hard. I didn't think it was too hard. Probably 10b or so. Big cam to protect the crux but its not really to bad and I thought it was one of the more enjoyable sections of the climb pulling out through the roof.

Comments: I found this very hard. I couldn't seem to get past the crux. At the crux I wasn't able to get my second knuckles in the rock because of my hand size. I don't know if that mattered any but jams just were not working.

Great climb I just wish I could have pulled the last move!
