Comments: Thanks for the response, Petsfed. Unfortunately, neither this guidebook (The Voo) or MP has anything about Kopischka exit or Tat exit.

Comments: Question for anyone who knows the Nautilus well:

According to what I can find on mountainproject, Slat is where number 34 is pointing in this picture in the link below from the guidebook and where number 36 is pointing is not on mountainproject.

Who knows what route number 36 is pointing to in the picture? The guidebook is definitely wrong, and that line is definitely much harder than 5.7.

Comments: It was nice of someone to leave a fixed draw on the first bolt of this climb, however it is far too short and will not last long. It's already weathered and needs to be replaced with cable or chain. I recommend using an alpine draw or standard length sling for the first bolt to reduce rope drag on the tufas between the first and second bolts.

Or to avoid the bees a bit, you can clip the first bolt of Tufa One with a long draw and very easily climb into TYD.

Comments: Most people do not belay from the ledge that Aaron Miller is referring to, but rather 30 feel below at the base of the cliff and trail. Also, that hive has been there longer that TYD has been bolted. Its level of activeness has varied over the years. This is only one of many active hives in the canyon. Always use caution when climbing in bee country.

Comments: Awesome picture.
The feet options at the start look much different now. Lots of erosion.

Comments: We linked pitches like the OP did. P4(second half of p2 for us) had loads of rope drag even with many extendable draws and not clipping the mid anchor or 7 other lead bolts. All the other pitches had no noticeable rope drag.
The approach was easy to follow for us and took us exactly one hour. The descent was also easy to follow but took us about two hours of hiking. Climb took us 2hrs, 52min.

I'm excited for some thick and large elk steaks and the road improvements!

Comments: Are there names for the boulder problems on the low angle wall directly across from Iron Monkey and to the right of the Donkey Punch wall? I found the right line on this wall to be pretty fun.

Comments: I took the name of this crag off the photo as I was informed that hunters found this and similar photos on this website from a google search and were illegally trying to hunt these beauties. I'll send you a message letting you know what climbing area this is.

Comments: My first thought is that this is a new route and should have a name. (like Crossbones.)

Then I thought about it more and this route does just seem like a harder start for Coup de'tat.

How do you do that?

Comments: That's cool Dave. We did a day hike out here last year to check it out also. Definitely nicer to stay the night and have a couple days here.

Comments: I give this a "PG13/R" rating just for the very top. Though the difficulty backs off after you pull the last roof, if you blow it in the last couple moves to the anchor, the fall will be long and it looks like a hard hit into the wall! Someone left a nice fat chalk mark right where another bolt should be added.
Crux is at the bottom.

Comments: A 60 meter rope might get you down, we used most of our 70 meter rope. If not, 60m will get you to a ledge about 25 feet off the ground where you can untie and traverse to a down climb.
