Comments: Glad to see this made it on to Mtn Proj! This route was first done in 2009 by Scott McLeod and Andrew Wilder, though not done free on lead. I referenced Choir Boyz by name for safe decent off the convent, but never posted the topo in the hopes of getting back for the FFA. I assume it has gone free at this point! Great job folks.

Comments: I should add, this route did not go free on lead in 2012. I have no idea what has happened in the last 5 years, I'd guess it has gone free, but if not, time to get after it!

Comments: This photo shows an alternate direct start. Essentially, you just climb straight up the terrain shown in the foreground here, moving up and right of the triangle block with the dark shadow. It is 5.7 or easier. I didn't place any gear, and just jumped straight into the 5.11 crack with no rope drag. There is some loose stuff, but by no means dangerous or unmanageable.

Comments: This route deserves a bit more credit, and traffic, than its given. It is splitter! We got on it as an alternative to Jah Man because it was so crowded, and it turned out to be amazing.

Also, if you want to get straight to the business, consider the direct start. We didn't do the chimney and traverse in, we just came straight in from below. It is very straight forward, 5.7 or something. We were hustling so we linked all the way up to the hanging belay in a single pitch, with with no drag, bu... more >>

Comments: June 2013 - If anyone is headed up there soon, it would be nice to bring along some leaver-biners and cordlette. Someone was kind enough to install chain on many of the anchors, but only one chain per station. Everything was in good shape, but it could be made a bit more straight forward with some additional cordage at the anchors. In most cases, the webbing / cordlette was tied straight through the bolt, so it will last longer and be safer by adding a biner or quick - link

Comments: Had another great day on WH this weekend. We were going for speed and found that we were able to link P1 & P2, P3 & P4, P5 & P6, P7 & P8, and even P9 & P10. I was happy to find that with thoughtful use of gear and runners, 9 & 10 actually went with very little drag. I would love to link from 10 to the top.

In the interest of moving on to the upper wall of Notch Peak, has anyone ever climbed the mellow looking ridge to the summit rather than going around the corner to pitch 11 & 12?

Comments: And one more thing, if someone were to bring a small saw and cut out the gnarly, rotting, dead tree "guarding" the beginning of the finger crack, it would improve this line greatly! In which case DON'T belay right below the crack!

Comments: Regardless of who did this first, or when it was originally done, there are some cool sections on this line. My suggestions would be to A) Consider approaching via Endless Torment rather than the first 2 pitches of Precious Lost (which are not memorable). Either way, you have some bush whacking. And B) set up your belay directly below the finger crack rather than at the "nut and pin" anchor. That way, you don't have to worry about the rope running over the sharp arete.
