Comments: This is no route for budding 5.7 leaders. It's possible I missed something...but there seemed to be definite decking potential during the first half of the route.

Comments: Interesting...did the town approve bolting/climbing here? Curious about access issues, if there are any....

Comments: Maybe I'm sandbagging...but this felt like 98% hiking and class 3/4 scrambling, and 2% technical climbing. That said, the position and views make this a worthwhile outing. In my opinion, it would be a stretch to call any of the mandatory climbing 5.4, and I didn't encounter any Ace downclimb any harder than 4th class. As noted in other comments, it's definitely possible to pick harder lines.

Comments: Or at least threaded through rings/chain links that don't lie flat against the rock... Regardless, nobody is going to die here. Forces during rapping shouldn't cause a bolt to fail, and rap rings directly on bolt hangers is a common scenario.

Comments: I climbed this a week ago with a 70m and would NOT recommend rapping on a single 70 (and definitely not a single 60m). While it is possible to do so with a bunch of bail gear and webbing (there are places to build rap stations everywhere), it's not worth the headache. It's apparent that the rap stations change frequently.

Comments: To reduce the runout / ledge fall potential between the second and third bolts, it's possible to clip the third bolt of Woofs of a Wandering St. Bernard with a long runner.

Comments: Don't get me wrong...I've been to that spot and agree a rope is a better idea than a pad. But, in this photo, the rope isn't doing much with the belayer so far from the rock and with the slack in the system.

Comments: A crash pad would at least be more useful than this pointless/terrible belay, for sure.

"Scattered afternoon thunderstorms" in the Sierra almost always means "Don't even think about doing an alpine route"

Comments: Does this really warrant a new route in the database? It's 2 pitches of climbing...The rest is the same as the regular SE Face.

Maybe this is the alpine equivalent to a "sit start."

Comments: Due to the 20' runout off the deck on suspect rock, an initial crack that is hollow and exfoliating, a very short crux, one of the worst bolts and hangers I've seen on the mountain, and huge, loose blocks at the top of the climb...I'd give this route a half a star after leading it. It's probably more enjoyable as a toprope, unless you're into those kinds of things.

Also, a #3 Camalot protects the crux. I'm not sure why you'd want a #4.

Comments: Have you climbed the route? The crack trends left for the entire climb. Follow the crack...pretty simple.

Comments: Camping at Minaret Lake is WAY better than camping at Cecile. If you do camp here (which I HIGHLY recommend), the South Notch descent is a great option.
