Comments: Fun climbing on terrible rock. Exploded a key pocket and several edges while working this. Also sent down a dinner plate size chunk. I was hoping that this rig would clean up since I last got on it about 3 years ago, but it does not seem that it did. Maybe more traffic is needed?

Comments: This is not a terrible route, but after doing or being on everything 12c and under on the Tower, I'd say that it is the worst of the lot. There are significant chossy sections, and it is best to skip the last bolt and to go in to rumplestilskin one bolt early. These two bolts are practically next to each other, and the Rumple bolt allows you to avoid climbing into the super rotten scoop to the right of the last bolt on this route. Regardless, this is a fun route that is quite... more >>

Comments: Great route. Thought that this one was a bit thinner and more sustained than Cutter (which is also a very nice route)

Comments: Really nice route with a hard to read power-endurance crux after the last bolt.

Comments: Staying in the crack after the big horizontal makes no sense. Going straight up the bolt line is devious, techy, and stout at the grade, but also very fun.

Comments: This is not a terrible route to warmup on, but it really isn't a .9 either. For a .10 warmup it isn't bad, and does acclimatize one to the typical Tunnel slopers. The hardware is getting pretty rusty on this rig, but that is also pretty normal for the shady side.

Comments: Very good route, but dare I say a bit solid at 11c. Significantly harder than its neighbors Silverado and Regroovable.

Comments: Very sharp and hard to read. However, this is not a bad route and is actually quite fun. Bolt placements didn't seem particularly well thought out. Felt a hair harder than Lime Street.

Comments: Really fun and sustained crimping through the first four bolts. There are no stopper moves, and for how thin it is, it is not sharp.

Comments: I was kind of disappointed with this one. It is short, with a brief and bouldery crux. I am on the shorter side, and the jugs out left didn't work. Crimping straight through felt much more obvious and easier.

Comments: Whatever the grade, this is a phenomenal warm-up for the rest of the wall.

Comments: I do not think that you would deck if you blew the second bolt, at least not with a good belay. Still, it probably is not the best warm-up as the start is pretty stiff, crimpy and sharp for the grade. The route is decent and fun however.

Comments: Location is between 'Drugs Are Nice' and 'Razor Hueco.' There is a route going up the left side of the roof that is allegedly .12. Awkward start with a cool headwall.

Comments: Nice climb, but moving past the third bolt felt awfully blank and hard for the grade (leaving the hueco feature left of bolt). The remainder is hard but reasonable crimping covered by lichen. The one old open shut anchor that is over the edge is just kind of silly.

Comments: I do not recall any 'bolt protected crack climbing' on this. There is a seam going to the first bolt, but I doubt you could get decent pro in. It does open into decent but shallow pods right before bolt 3, with a good horizontal, & I suppose that you could get some creative but okay pro there. This is a good route. 7 bolts.

Comments: This is a pile! Looks great, but there is nothing pleasant or fun about this route. It is not anywhere near 11+ either. Bailed on last bolt in exasperation.

Comments: Much harder crux than its neighbor. Using the rest to the right leaves you a bit marooned. A harder send than Arnold Arnold.

Comments: Middle crux is pretty thin with bad feet. I can see 12- on this section alone. Bottom and top cruxes are quite simple in comparison. Quality route!

Comments: It has cleaned up, and is quite fun. It is still sharp however, and anchors are Metolius rap bolts :-(.

Comments: This is probably the worst route at Fire wall. It is awkward and chossy, and probably harder than most, or all of the 11s on the wall. I gave it a second star only because the wife kind of liked it, and it is well bolted.

Comments: Thought the slab between bolts 2 and 3 was the crux. Really fun route.

Comments: Not as sustained as its neighbor, but has a nice crux. Fun.
