Comments: After watching Gabe and his friend climb this route like it was 5.2 I figured it could not be that hard. Gabe and his friend are some strong dudes and excellent climbers. With their words of encouragement, blood loss, and a fall I eventually made it but definitely not in the cool, elegant style of those mentioned above!

Comments: This is not better protected than the High Exposure exit as mentioned and just a WEEE bit harder. I guess if you are going to fall maybe you could jump to one side in order not to be cleaved on the Flying Buttress, a better option would be not to fall.

Comments: A fun route. A much shorter version of "Inner Passage" down in the Stronghold. You can fiddle nuts in down low and some medium pieces for the remainder of the route. 5.7 exit at the top but super short.

Comments: Well, have to come back and finish this one. Made it to the bolt, got scared, had no more gear and retreated. Began the route on the right side crack, "fun" and not as easy it looks. Back to off-width school for me. We brought two 4's, two 5's and two 6's, next time I'm bringing two more of each.

Comments: What a route. I was happy and sad to finally clip that first bolt. Happy to be done with all the thin gear and strange climbing below and sad when I saw the spacing of the bolts and the blankness of the face that wandered above. We split the pitch in two and the belay was comfy.

Comments: Yikes. A route that will leave ones tendons aching for a day or week. The start of Lessons in Discipline is committing and somewhat unbelievable but eventually leads to a "rest" before questing to the top where the bolt spacing becomes increasingly spacious.
We "worked" on this route for an hour taking turns figuring out the multiple cruxes. While the upper half of the route eases up, it feels a wee bit like Powder Puff of Fear of Flying for a few moves. A small cam near the top will ca... more >>

Comments: After years of wanting to lead this offwidth I finally gave it the go and all went well. It felt a bit harder to lead than all those times I spent tope-rope soloing....must of been the weight of the big cams and the urgency to move so that I did not slither out of the wide.

Comments: Another fine face climb adventure on the Peak. I thought there were three cruxes in route to the summit that makes you pinch, crimp, and edge like you mean it. Feels like a true 5.11 to me.

Comments: Perhaps it was the cold and the wind but the third pitch (if you follow Cramers guide) felt harder than pitch 2 of Said and Done and pitch 1 of Magnolia TP. Maybe harder is not the right term-the gear did not seem that awe-inspiring in a few sections on that pitch but then again it is only a "5.8".....just make sure you climb 5.12 at the gym and all should be well.

Comments: We just climbed this gem a few days ago. We opted for the variation that avoids the 5.10 R section of the route. Airy and committing with a nice fall/swing potential if you blow-it. I believe the rating is 5.9 R for the variation. It "looks" more appealing to climb the 5.10 thin seam with tiny gear and maybe a better/safer fall??

Great climb with even some bear grass wrestling and caving moves to be discovered in route to the summit.

Comments: You can safely lead this route with cams to size #4 and nuts. Some rotten rock near the middle section. Down low seemed more difficult than near the top of the chimney/crack. The exit out of the system to gain the chains is exciting.

Comments: A great photo showing Terrapin Throne, the entire Miners Needle complex as well as the Sisyphus Pinnacle and Casper.

Comments: Casper is the rock in the bottom right that looks like it might fall off the other rock it is perched on.

Comments: The first pitch of Casper begins on the east side of the formation. One must mount a loose boulder to locate a somewhat hidden crack just left of boulder. The start of this pitch is loose, the crack is alright (5.7) and the traverse out of the crack is fairly loose as well.

Tippy-toe/traverse over more loose stone (north) and continue around corner (west) to a nice ledge for the beginning of pitch 2. We found one piton at the start of this pitch--the same type we found on Sisyphus. Pitch 2 ... more >>

Comments: We did it in one long day and did not find anything that required any use of a rope. I believe the entire traverse took six or seven hours (started at south end, near the mine) and ended on Brown's Peak. A fairly easy escape route can be found between the middle of the four peaks if one wants to do just half of the traverse.

A longer but more difficult trek is to do the circumference of the range...the eastern side is troublesome but yields some nice bear dens!!!
