Comments: Really, really fun route! Crux seemed to be down low, but plenty of solid moves after.

2 glue ins on the top are for a more comfy belay if bringing your partner up. The larger ones on the edge are for the rap. Can rap straight to ground with a 70m (long, tie knots!) by heading straight back over the pitch 1 belay. If you have a 60m you will still hit the P1 anchors.

Comments: Classic line! Pitch 1 easy with maybe 1 move of 5.3 to 2 new bolts on a ledge. After that the climbing is awesome from start to finish with a burly crux about mid-way. You'd be crazy to not finish on the 2 bolt direct line. That's some really fun climbing to top it off!

Onsight rack: 1x .4-3 | 2x .5-2 | 4 slings | 4 quick-draws (save 2 for the bolts at the end).

2 glue in bolts on top of the sub summit.

FYI, you can rap from the bigger glue ins at... more >>

Comments: What a fun route! Great moves the whole way. The crux is tricky, but only a couple of moves long. Trust that friction!

Easy to continue on to the anchors for Typhoon to get a TR on that one.

Comments: For only 60' long, this thing is super fun! Classic in the 5.8 range.

Single set from .2-.75 worked for me.

Comments: This things was really hard from bottom to top! Some really fun moves in the middle, but mostly just painful on the toes and tips. A good TR after leading either Hades or Name It, but I don't have a lot of confidence in the 2 leeper bolts in the middle for the lead burn.

Comments: I'd recommend having a purple C3 for the last 12' to the first bolt. The climbing around the 2nd bolt was definitely hard!

Comments: Does anyone have any info on this left leaning tips crack? I didn't find anything in PHX Rock II or the MK foldout. I would think it has been done since it's such a clean cut crack.

I TR'd it and it felt hard(.11+?) with lots of exfoliation of footholds. Super Fun though.

Comments: This rig was harder than it looked for the ground. I TR'd it and still couldn't do a handful of the moves! Especially down low in the flare..

Would be a rad lead! The upper seam took bomber 00C3's.

Comments: A good free solo. The initial jamming was really easy, but still fun. Also, the move past the bolt had some nice exposure on the other side.

A great line if you wanted to TR some of the other routes(Death Watch, Lost Nuts, D&D, etc.)

Comments: This is a must do if in the area. Agreed that it felt soft for PP. Getting to the 1st bolt is very easy, but a fall before clipping it would suck.

Comments: Really great climb! Did this after Crimson Chrysalis for a nice, moderate day of about 2000' of climbing.

A few notes:

-We linked 1/2 and 3/4 with no issues with an 80m, which made for 2 awesomely fun, 250ish foot pitches and skipped the pitch 3 hanging belay.
-Both my partner and I thought it was way more fun than CC.
-Rack suggestions above were good, even for linking, just add a few extra slings to do so.
-Guidebook P5 was surprisingly awesome! From the description above I didn't think ... more >>

Comments: Got on it the other day. First pitch had some so-so rock. The spicy section just above the ledge around the v-slot took a .3 well...which I whipped on when a foothold blew, so it's good, but a bit nerve racking since you'd ledge out if it didn't. The upper section takes more smallish gear and you are pulling on hollow sounding stuff that I don't know that I'd want to fall on. Just a little Earn-Your-Burn. Once you hit the 2nd pitch though the quality is great(and that's why you came here an... more >>

Comments: Fun route! Reminded me a bit of the Elephant Trunk pitch on Epinephrine. Although, slightly dirty since I don't think it sees many ascents.

Mostly 5.8 climbing with what I thought was a 5.10 crux. I could definitely see it feeling harder since the crux pro was thin. I nested a bomber .2 X4 and a #2 DMM Peanut about 10' above the piton. Crux is over in about 12' and you get a great #1 C4.

Even if it was 5.10, I wouldn't put a leader that isn't pretty good at find... more >>

Comments: This is actually to the climbers left of Stellar Arete. Guidebook and description here are correct, but the order under the sorted section on this site is wrong.

Comments: Haven't been over to this side much. Is it possible to get down with a 70m? Maybe with some shenanigan's(ex. getting to another climbs anchor, down climbing easy terrain, etc.)?

Comments: Sweet, thanks for the info Jeff! Yeah - there were 2 new bolts in the upper section and a 2 bolt anchor just above that.

Comments: Does anyone know what the route just to the left of Technicolor Corner is? They would likely share the same first pitch. It looked rad!

Comments: Pitch 1 was really fun climbing! I thought mid 5.10ish. More .75 size than fingers, but fun movement. Didn't do pitch 2 since pretty much everyone said it sucks, but with the anchor bolts on top of P1 it makes this a nice quick bonus if in the area.

My rack for the onsight of pitch 1 would be 2x .3-1 | 3x .5-.75 plus a 0 C3 for the first 12 feet.

Comments: Wow pitch 2 was a beaut!

You can rap from the pitch 2 anchors to the ground with a 70m rope with just inches left. There is an opportunity to down climb an easy 8' dirt clod if you ended up a few feet short.

Comments: Fun route! Man, that tips section is really hard! Didn't get it clean - so can't officially rate it, but felt a lot harder than 11+!

Upper bolted section was rad too! Although the medium sized block right before moving over the to the 3rd bolt on the arete seemed a bit loose.

Comments: Awesome first 2 pitches! As mentioned, they can be linked with about 20' to spare with a 70m rope. This makes for an amazing long pitch! Just save the 3's and up for the upper stuff! The 3rd pitch roof was really cool(and tough!), but the rock quality deteriorates really badly for the 10' before pulling the corner. Save a few pieces(.3-1) for last 35' after pulling the roof. The climbing eases, but there's still a ways to go to the anchor.

Can NOT rap with a single 70m. The first rap w... more >>

Comments: Has anyone rapped this with a single 70m from the top of pitch 3 or does it require double rope raps? Sounds like it may be possible with stretch with 1 70m from the lengths Darren listed above..?
