Comments: Soft. Roof crux is no harder than maybe V3, and you can get fully rested before it on jugs under the roof

Comments: Fun route, good climbing on good rock, but nowhere near any of the best 5.12s in the South. Definitely worth coming for though

Comments: Got off route and went up and right when we should have gone left on the second pitch. Wound up doing the sermon, which was pretty strung out to the Oasis, but really good too.

Comments: A geat route for sure, but no legacy. Worth the trip none the less. A great wam up for the harder routes or just a good ride any time.

Comments: Did this with my buddy Jordan the other week. Had a blast. This was how we pitched it out:

From Broadway, Jordan climbed to the base of the 5.9 finger cracks.

I led the 5.7 traverse into the 5.8 squeeze and continued up to the base of the 5.8 corners. Some simul-climbing was involved.

I led the 5.8 corner to the base of the crux pitch (YWBL), some simul-climbing was involved there too, no big deal.

Jordan led the crux pitch to the base of Table Ledge extended

I led the traverse over to Tabl... more >>

Comments: Climbed this today. There's 10 or 12 bolts and chains. There are new blue boundary signs up that are before you get to blood and bolts, this is right directly in line with those signs. Fun route, good movement, and well bolted.

Comments: Gear spoiler for the top, plug a green alien size piece at the very bottom of the dihedral before you run to the chains.

Comments: Did the direct start to this today. If you add in the fear factor I think it bumps up a few letter grades. Stellar route though, no two ways around that. Had an interesting time working out the moves from the second bolt up to the finger crack. Hard tenuous, and scary. Amazing route.

Comments: I'm pretty sure I topped this route out all the way to where there were anchors to rap off of. First pitch was straightforward up the crack to a huge ledge. Second pitch, up the face and crack to a ledge, then head off again bypassing that belay stance to another large ledge. For the third pitch we went up to a left facing corner where I got a belay in a flake with some .75-1 size pieces on a small ledge. After that I headed just a little off to the right from the belay and then straight up the ... more >>
