Comments: from the tick list it looks like a few people have done this route when there likely was a decent amount of snow. i am curious about how it was and what you used for the descent. also, if anybody has relatively current conditions, that would be great. thanks!

Comments: IIRC there was a video tape concert of van halen in new halem connecticut. i think sammy hagar yells out something about renaming the town van halem. maybe that is where the name comes from?

Comments: cool, thanks for the feedback Brandon - much appreciated! I haven't been over there for a while and couldn't really remember.

Comments: I think this is probably a duplicate entry of the Wide Hands LF Corner that is just to the left. Would anybody be upset if I merged that route into this route? I don't think this is the same one as trading places. The photos for the Wide Hands LF Corner are slightly different than the photos for the Trading Places route.

Thanks.

Comments: I think this is probably a duplicate entry of the "Unnamed 5.10" that is just to the right. Would anybody be upset if I merged this route into that route, but kept this route's name?

Thanks.

Comments: the approach is definitely the crux of this tower. the actual tower climbing is pretty brief and straight forward. makes for a nice easy day in a quiet area. thanks for putting it up. i brought a set of camalots from .5 to 4. i think i used a .5, a 2, and a 4 to position myself at the anchor (but mostly because i brought it). the bolts are good and protect the sandy slabby stuff well.

Comments: fun little tower, worth doing if you have some time after doing other towers in the area. the crack goes free pretty easily. i think the bolt ladder could also, but the rock was pretty soft and i didn't want to bust it up. thanks for putting it up.

Comments: pitch 2 is a bit hairy for the second, as well as for the leader. from the final anchor, if you throw down your end of the rope you can give a little bit of a TR belay for the second during the initial traverse.

Comments: damn, i see that sarah meiser has climbed this twice. that's pretty hard core - this is a one-timer for me for sure! my partner did a great job on the 4th pitch - there is a long section that has a lot of different kinds of choss - big flake, small flakes, blobby chinle looking stuff, powdery fluff, etc.

Comments: terrific route. this would be a classic anywhere. bring a bunch of #1 camalots - my partner had to do some budgeting to hold on to them. they will easily go in almost anywhere.

Comments: really surprised to see this route get some low quality ratings. i thought the majority of it was superb, other than the loose bit on the 2nd pitch (which my partner thankfully lead). we used an 80m to rap wildflower, which worked well.

Comments: excellent physical climbing, way heavy on cups (#3 camalots). it is helpful to have about 1 or 2 each of .5 to #1, as well as a handful of #2's to help save on 3's. i would have liked to have a few 3.5 camalots or 4 friends as well, as the 3's get pretty tipped. a 3.5 would have been really handy at the roof (between a pair of not great blocks). bring some runners/draws as well.

there are still 3 block/flake sections that should be treated with respect. i would give this a pg13 ... more >>

Comments: old 3.5 camalots (or #4 friends) are pretty money on the first pitch. the #3 camalots get a wee bit tipped out. great route. avoid the death block in the chimney, it is pretty loose.

Comments: superb route, well done! your comment about spicy but well protected seemed pretty accurate. i haven't really climbed anything like that, and the super wide chimney/stemming was really cool. thanks for putting it up.

Comments: hmmm, that doesn't really make much sense. if you are going to go through the effort of dragging a 5 up there for a marginal piece, why not just drag a 6 instead for a good piece. it's not THAT big of a weight difference....

Comments: generally i try to avoid naming routes, but if it had bandito hangers i don't have too much of an issue with it. would anybody out there be upset if i renamed this one "bandito route" ?

i would add the route other "lift kit" route, but i can't remember the gear at the start that protects the mantle sort of move. maybe purple tcu or something?

Comments: man, i am glad to hear somebody else say that. i did this one a couple weeks ago. i haven't been climbing much lately, and not many cracks, but this felt challenging in a lot of ways. the gear looks really straight forward, but when you actually go to place it, it is very easy to place gear that isn't great. the corner also leans a bit to the "bald" side, which adds to the stress when you are trying to tinker in some gear.... more >>
