Comments: Finally got on this route. The original pitch 1 was pretty straight forward, the traverse right isn't hard but a little heady as there are crappy hands with good feet. Do the original route.

The rest is pretty easy for Eldo 5.8.

Comments: I did this in 1991 or 92 ish with Will Nichols. I think we bailed after 3 pitches, might have been 4. I remember rusty hangers with 1/4" Button Heads? Sound right to anyone else?

Comments: I do not get how the administrator can rate a route that he does not know if he was on it or not? As well as a guy who bails after 1.4 pitches?

We climbed this route a few years ago and found it pretty damn fun for 5.6. Go up and through the squeeze chimney that is full of shit, but you stay right of the shit, top out where the chimney stops and head to the light to the right, the route heads to the left to the walk off, or you can head up and right the the Tunnel pitch of Tunnel Vision.

Comments: Great line especially of you stay in the crack. Wish it was longer. I brought a #4 and used it, but it is not necessary. 2 #3s would be nice though.

Comments: Only climbed the first pitch but liked it. It is rated 10c in D'Antonio's book but felt more like 10a. Nice line that needs some cleaning.

Comments: Bob D'Antonio's book called this 10b. I found it pretty hard by Boulder Canyon standards. I also placed a yellow Mastercam going from 3rd to 4th bolt.

Comments: I'd vote for a 5.9 if you go straight up the bolt line. The problem is that you can cheat too easily which downgrades the climb quite a bit.

Comments: Did this last night and thought that the route is pretty solid 11 a/b. The pic shows a zag to the right below the undercling, I went straight up the seam then stepped over to the undercling. Pretty thin climbing here, could warrant the 11c that it is rated in the guidebook for a short person.

Comments: Good climb, though I wish I'd have had more big gear. Did it with a #3 and a #4, could have used at least 1 more of either or both to really feel comfortable.

Comments: Nice route. A #4 is not needed but is nice to have. The crux is pulling the 2nd roof.

Comments: Sort of a 1 move wonder.

I am pretty sure we were on route. Here is what we encountered.

Clip bolt at top of tooth for Grins.
Make interesting transition move to 2nd bolt.
Keep heading up, 10' to 2 bolts? but not the anchor. Then up to the anchor?

Sound right to anyone?

Comments: I gave this 3 stars as I think it is a good early 5.7 trad lead. Takes great gear, interesting positions. Good intro lead if you can follow 5.8ish.

Comments: Jan 21. Climbed BB in 60 degree temps, sunny, slight breeze, perfect Saturday. We were the only ones at the crag.

The start of pitch 1 is tough to protect, but I did not find it to be a R route. The crux of the first pitch, for me, was the small roof near the top of the. You can cheat out to the left on the slab, but the straight up move is nice.

Pitch 2 was ok.

Pitch 3 protects well. Commit to the moves you see, it's 5.8+ or 9- (whatever). The holds are there.

Cheers,

Prod.

Comments: Going up the crack and getting fist jams in the roof crack is pretty easy. I have heard first hand of 1 climber climbing the roof crack.

Comments: Climbed it today. First pitch felt 5.9 somewhere around the 4th or 5th bolt. I used a nut to protrect the finger crack below the 1st bolt, this was not the crux. I'd give the crack 5.7 1 move wonder. Also places a blue TCU in a small horizontal somewhere along the way.

The 2nd pitch is 5.8 if you stick to the face for the last 2 bolts. 5.5 if you head up the gully.
