Comments: Just curious what the thought is with placing pins on a new route for the anchor?

Comments: This route was put up by myself and Skyelar Congdon. Chacha Poya is the route to the left of it, sharing anchors but traversing the ledge into some broken hand cracks and the arching crack. I believe Brandon Gottung just did a direct start to this line and maybe added a bolt?

Comments: Mike those lines are in place for locals to solo and for developers putting up new lines. For better or worse it's part of the local ethic, thanks for your patience and understanding.

Comments: Does anyone know when the 5-piece that was at the top of this was placed to back up the original Hong bolt? Just curious

Comments: Could be worth moving the top rap anchors in to good rock considering they're currently in an entirely detached and hollow block...that being said they've held so far.

The flake mac marked is easily avoided via jugs over head or using the other block on the ledge but it would be an awesome trundle!

Comments: Came across a bunch of these up on Independence Pass, several pulled out by hand and many were heavily rusted and held together by silicone caulk!

Comments: Those bolts have been mentioned a few times, in person and here on the magnificent interwebz.

The first was placed on lead during a ground up ascent to protect the opening moves before the ledge and before it was understood that this climb had already been established.

The second bolt was placed after contact with the FA party had been made and was also placed on lead. It was placed in a location that would make the crux move safe albeit a bit spicy without making the #1 placement above... more >>

Comments: Ben is right on this route is super rad and the jump will gain you tons of street cred!

Don't even bother with Bloom's book beta.

Comments: All the raps are now bomb dot com with some hardware donated by the ASCA and some out of pocket it's all beefy 1/2" bolts so you can avoid rapping off flexing drilled angles!

Comments: Dang I'm bummed I missed the rant, heard it was a good one.

Just was feeling sassy when I posted it and was bummed the name was taken, turns out I skimped on the research.

It's certainly chossy below the belay on the first pitch and that's a bummer since the second pitch is such a fun moderate OW.

Devin, you'll have to check out the new route you saw me on, it's pretty bitchin'.

Comments: Several bolts that were in the worst shape have been replaced, though the old studs still need to be removed if anyone has a steel chisel, I'd be happy to do it myself.

What do you folks think of replacing the first bolt with the mangled hanger? If it were replaced ,the draw when clipped would not hang over that hand hold and could potentially alter how the route climbs, is this nit picky or a legit concern?

Comments: There are 2 fixed nuts and a knot (double overhand I reckon) for the first pitch belay although yellow aliens are still a good idea to back these up. gets pretty thin off that belay

Comments: Seemed like the last moves on the 3rd pitch (we ended just before the short 5.8 runout arete/face climbing) were the hardest technical moves at solid .12. Rest of the climb was super bitchin'
