Comments: Thanks, Jeremy, for the updated route beta and pitch lengths. My two cents worth:

- Overall impression of the climb: meh. Great belay ledges. Would I climb it again? No. Definitely not as good as Olive Oil (or many other climbs of this grade in Red Rock);

- P4 chimney: we didn’t think it was more than 5.6. No, it doesn’t protect (I led it and didn’t place any pro till about 40 feet up), but the climbing is easy and the rock is good enough;

- First 8-10 feet of P2 (s... more >>

Comments: Fun, slabby climb. A little run out (for RR) at times, but not bad. Felt true-to-grade.

Comments: Bolted, though a bit run out--sporty, but not too bad. Felt more like a 10a to me. Nowhere NEAR as tough as Panty Mime (though that's a tough piece of slab).

Comments: I believe this is the same climb as "Flameblower" in the Handren Guide II (p. 392). Of it he says, "One of the better sport routes of its grade in the Calico Hills." That, plus a John Wilder endorsement, speaks volumes. Stellar climb--well bolted/protected and good line. Looking forward to sending it.

Comments: Good climb, worth doing. Below are a few thoughts to add to what others have contributed.

Protection: single rack of cams (.1-4), DMM HB offsets, extra 120cm and 60cm slings. Used the slings several times for anchors, precluding the necessity to break out my cordelette. Placed the HBs a few times, including one above the bolt on P5 and one for an anchor. The #4 cam was useful a few times, including setting up anchors. The length of the X4s made placement easier.

Approach: We stashed ou... more >>

Comments: Consulted with Tom Robson and Mike Moore, who agreed that "The Punisher" is an appropriate name for this route. Thanks to Tom & Mike, and my climbing buddy Jeremy, and all the others who supported this name change. Special thanks to whoever did the FA and put up this route--good work!

Comments: Great climb; really fun. Led the odd pitches and want to go back and lead the even ones. Had some pretty good belay ledges (especially top of p5). Used trees for anchors in a couple spots, and at the top of p3 there’s a welded #1 C4 and a sideways hex that were bomber for the anchor. We took a single rack (.1-3) and a set of stopper nuts. Protecting as you get up to the chockstone: if you place pro on the left side, it will reduce rope drag after you get above the chockstone. Also, because ... more >>

Comments: Fun route, protects well. The 5.7 grade seems about right. Glad I had extra runners to sling chicken heads. For p5, both my partner and I wish we'd taken our packs off and extended them below us on our belay loop--dihedral gets a little crowded with a pack on. Also, I dropped an alpine draw on p5; not sure where it landed. If you find it, I'll spring for a six pack of your favorite beer if you return it to me. See my post "Lost: Alpine Draw at Olive Oil, Red Rock" under the Lost and Found sectio... more >>

Comments: Great climb, fun movements--combination of power moves pulling the bulge at the start and balancy-technical moves up the blank slab with thin hands and feet. Nice fear factor towards the top on sharp limestone. Beware of loose block before the bulge (lower section). Feels a bit harder than 1057 to the left.

Comments: Nice route; lots of fun, and the grade is reasonably well sustained throughout the climb. Rock is sufficiently featured and of good quality, though because it's a new route/wall, there's a bit of spice in choosing hand and footholds. Nothing broke off when I climbed it, but my partner, Nick, managed to "clean" it a bit. Recommend it. And thanks, Mike Kim, for putting up this wall. It's a great contribution to Red Rock moderate climbing.

Comments: Fun climb with a bit of variety--technical, balance moves as well as a bulge or two to pull. A wee bit more challenging if, through the first few blots, you stay right. Length: 70 feet--not very important to most, but the rope I had that day was a 45m (chopped 50m), and I measured a half length at 74'. I had approx. four feet remaining before climber got to anchor.

Comments: Fun climb, great moves. Don't see where the PG-13 comes in.
