Comments: Just like Ken says going over the bulge is 11-. This variation has two bolts and finishes right under the anchor "Back Surgery .11b" in regard to Mr. Knight. A short crux that I thought was more sequential than powerful, but if you don't get the move just right it can turn into a powerful pull real quick.

Comments: Max - I think you may have Y Crack confused with Sgt. Peppers? Y crack is only about 15 feet tall, and any sort of walk up would be a 4th class poison oak disaster.

Comments: The guy that wrote the Article is from the Bay Area. I thought the article was completely lame - he basically just talks trash, and posts some photos of his friends hangdogging up some hard routes. Maybe it's the fact that he has an injury that doesn't let him climb anymore, that he goes around shooting photos and writing articles about areas he doesn't climb at, or research on mproject for that matter. The keyboard can be quite shouldery after watching other people send - ask anyone serious ab... more >>

Comments: The roof, lip, and wide section climb great. The finger exit moves were pretty dirty. Definitely worth doing, especially with the sub-2 minute approach.

Comments: It almost appears low angle in the videos, but pulling over that bulge definitely feels vertical.

Comments: Clip bolt 2 at your waist, after doing the crux. Don't worry, that spinning quarter inch first bolt is bomber, lots of folks have 'tested' it.

Comments: Powerful, dynamic edging and smearing on high steps and small crimps to a final crux reach for a 'jug.' Ultra classic.

5.11c/d, but a few letters easier for someone with a big reach.

EDITED: Internet video spraying aside, I thought this route really deserved a video, as it is very technical and even dynamic for someone with a normal wingspan. Mickey and Jordan seemed to run up it just fine, and skip all the smaller edges, but for us mere mortals there's a lot more pain and sequencing to finish... more >>

Comments: To start, find a big undercling and stand on a block at the beginning of the crack. Deep heel toe cams and chicken wings are the key, although this section has gone down wild west inverted, too (feet straight into the roof). Find some crimps to exit the wide...fist and hands section is straightforward, but it's deep committing jams with hands and ankles alike. Redpoint crux for me was moving from the hands section back to OW just before the exit horn. Horizontal crack exit section felt 5.8 and t... more >>

Comments: Fun cracks. Did the middle one today but the rock was still wet from the recent snow. Pretty sketchy when wet, both big blocks in the crack were moving fully and ready to come out if pulled on at all outward rendering gear useless and a belayer possibly smashed. They are seriously loose - better as a TR. Be Careful.
