Comments: this is an incredibly fun route, just on the right side of a big flake chimney. very easy to miss. i had that damned song in my head for a couple days afterward....

Comments: incredible route, hiding in plain sight for so long. i had thought this was an old jay smith route, pretty shocked to see it went up in '07. definitely the gold standard for stiff at the creek. way burly big hands through a series of steep sections. our 70m just barely made it back to terra firma. old #3.5 camalots are great on this route.

Comments: man, i totally disagree. this thing is definitely a desert classic! three ultra diverse pitches to a superb summit.

on a side note, i agree with noah about the bolt situation. a lot of them are in rough shape.

Comments: this is pretty good route, but not remotely close to a squamish top 100. be very careful how you arrange the directionality of your gear below the first little roof section...

Comments: i don't remember a looming block above the first pitch belay (?) isn't it just a big fat comfortable ledge with a solid corner above it?

Comments: Nathan,

Thanks a ton for the good info - I will update the descent info this afternoon. I remember looking up that gully (that we should have taken), and for some reason thinking it didn't look very promising. It all makes better sense now.

Comments: this route has some sections of absolutely stellar rock. the first 3 pitches are pretty good but a bit dirty and rambling. still fun though. the 10b pitch is excellent, although the gear in a few places isn't fisher price. i thought the 5.9 traverse pitch was a bit hairy at the start - the flake is pretty thin and not super solid (very thankful for the bolt here).

the 5.11 pitch is awesome, but be prepared to do some of the hardest climbing on the route a decent ways above gear to get... more >>

Comments: really fun rockaneering sort of route that for the most part is well protected and straight forward. the last 5.10 pitch (second to last pitch overall) has some rock that is not great. might want to excercise a bit of caution on this pitch. the final chimney pitch is very fun and very well protected.

Comments: It's not so much that he is recouping costs, but rather that the proceeds go towards hardware for future routes. I think there are other folks (along with Tod) that use these bolts on new routes.

Comments: thanks for the info marlin. i am kind of confused though. at the end of the rappel (assuming the second short rappel off of the bush), i don't remember there being an option to hike uphill (?). i remember just being in a steep gully with nowhere to go but down. i think i recall on the way down this gulley there was another narrow gully that shot up to the left, but it didn't look very promising.

also, i don't really remember there being a ridge across the gulley, but more of a r... more >>

Comments: Hmmm, there really isn't too much routefinding on the approach. You just hike the trail up the hill, and it dumps you at the base of Devil's Gate.

Comments: definitely sounds like your 70 is short, we had a decent amount of rope left over.

Comments: If you get up early, the left side gets shade for quite a while, up around Animal Riots Activist. Then you can swing all of the way around to the right side for afternoon shade.

Comments: super fun route. all of the pitches and all of the variation pitches are great. i was pretty dubious of dru's gear beta for the left hand chimney pitch (pitch 4), but it actually has really good protection that just keeps showing up.

Comments: ahh, interesting - looks like a good way to avoid downclimbing the beckey step if there is a lot of traffic coming up.

Comments: i have no idea how people are giving this thing 4 stars. 40 feet of pure mosschoss to 20 feet of good climbing to 30 feet of more pure mosschoss doesn't seem to add up to 4 stars. if this is 4 stars at the 'greatest crag in the country' then .....
