Comments: If you want a little adventure do the next pitch after topping out on the double cracks. Continue up the corner to the roof and then skirt along the wall under the roof to a bolted anchor/rap station. Easy but mostly unprotected. 1 rappel with 2 60m ropes and you will hit the ground.

Comments: I climbed this fucker a while back. WYDE! awkward and sandbagged. I remember only needing 1 #5 to keep pushing up. Nothing else really.

Comments: It only gets better the higher you go! The left leaning 10a crack on the penultimate pitch can be walked up with slight lieback technique. So fun and easy if done this way. Easiest 10a ever!

Comments: We setup a rappel with rap rings off the chock stone at the top of the chimney on pitch 3. It is mandatory to use a 70 m rope to reach the belay ledge below. We also put rap rings on the two hanger anchor at the top of pitch 1. You can rap the route quite easily with a 70 m rope doing 4 rappels.

Comments: I protected the upper roof with two 4.0's. It starts getting sandy and loose up there when pulling over and progressively more "beach like" toward the anchor. And by "beach like" I mean tight hand jamming in sand. Still a good route though IMO.

Comments: Perfect fingers all the way for someone with medium size hands. Mostly 0.4-0.5 size. Could use 0.75 near the upper mantle parts.

Comments: For pitch 3 big stuff I used 2 #3's (if you can call them big?) and 2 #5's. I had 2 #4's with me that I dragged all the way to the top of the pitch. The slot in the roof protects perfectly with a #5. You could use a #6 further out but why if you have a #5. As someone else mentioned, this route is very physical! Linked pitches with a 70m as others describe.

Comments: The slabby ramp half way up will make you think but he crux for me was transitioning off the ramp and onto the face following the bolt line.

Comments: I lead this as a pure crack/offwidth climb. AMAZING!!!!! So much fun. Big hands most of the way with a short section of arm baring/knee jamming in the wyde part 4/3's the way up. The crux after that is pretty wild too. My partner followed it without doing one jam, pure face. There you go, take your pick.

Comments: Rad! Do it is all I have to say. Soft for 5.10a. Partner and I both thought 5.9. Doubles up to #3 (no #4 needed) and small stuff. Felt well protected to me. Used #1, #2, #3 in the horizontal crack at the base of the chimney for the belay. No stuck #5 at the base of the chimney when we did it. When traversing off pitch 2 anchor, go immediately right and then trend up and right to the crack system. Don't go up straight up off the belay and th... more >>

Comments: Agreed when the snow is all melted out. If doing early season when there are still considerable snow fields in there, you will want to do some rappels, unless you have an ice axe and crampons :)

Comments: There is a really good ledge for his left foot that he is missing. Basically reach up with your left hand over the flake and use your left foot on the ledge. It is 5.8 if you do it this way. If you don't, then it requires some grunt work.

Comments: P1 - sustained 5.9 up the wide crack. You can stay on the outside for some of it but it does require some mandatory offwidthy skills higher up to gain the belay ledge.

P2 - Stay left for the direct variation. Sustained 5.8 hand cracks. mmmmm.......hand crack!

P3 - 15 feet of 5.10- right off the belay to gain the ridge then run it out on 5.easy as far as you can. Nice views!

P4 - 3rd class to 5.easy. Wind your way up and left around a pillar up into a corner. Many options here.

P5 - Many op... more >>
