Comments: Ha ha, yeah, you gotta change gears a bit for the finish. I remember my toes being smoked at the end of the day up there and really wishing I could get it over with more quickly.

Comments: this is a stupendous blockbuster of a pitch at the grade, on par with any pitch of the grade that i have climbed anywhere. geoff's description and mark robert's comments are dead on. i was really blown away by this pitch. the position is superb, the climbing sustained and beautiful. the mirror like sheen of the glacier polished face will ensure that your crack skills are fully engaged. i thought this thing made exasperator look (and climb) like klahanie crack (and exasperator is a f_... more >>

Comments: hmmm, trying to save money by buying a big bro instead of spending just a little more for a #6 seems like a major losing proposition. you will end up using the 6 a lot more and it will pay the difference in a really short time.

Comments: benji just climbs 30 foot bolted routes, so he hasn't really ever seen a standard rack before...

Comments: i don't think this one is trading places. i think this one is the unknown LF changing corners big hands route that is pretty far left (which i should merge this one with). the trading places route is in the right location (but i need to move the big jon route to the right of trading places).

Comments: the rakkup app gives this route 3 stars at 'the best crag in the country'. i am pretty curious as to which north american semi-classics they are comparing this thing. lolz...

Comments: well, doing the start in converse all stars with sort of sticky rubber would kind of suck...

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: 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.
