Comments: Fun climbing but definetly contrived bolting; I found it very enjoyable to stay left of the bolts.

Comments: Anyone care to share beta for the roof move out to the fingerlock and the mantel? The first bolt in roof is spinning a bit.

Comments: Steve, yes we did go ground up; at the end of the wild crux traverse was a bolt/pin/bolt. This was the only pitch we didn't onsight. I figured out the moves after clipping the highest fixed piece. I got to the ramp that traverses up and left after the crux section and was out of gear and had no obvious belay. I continued straight up the 5.9 variation on a blank, gearless slab on nice pebbles and crystals to the east ridge. We came back a couple weeks later for the r... more >>

Comments: Has this thing seen a repeat? I'd be curious if anyone cared to comment on the grade.

Comments: is there any trickery for rapping with a single 70m or just follow the normal raps?

Comments: This climb is awesome, not sure I'd call it a one move wonder. There is one really hard reach move, but it doesn't totally let up. If you like bouldery, steep climbing, this is a good one.
I found the best slinging was:
at the start there is a belay bolt, then a bolt just above that. Clip the third bolt from the ground as your first bolt.
Clip the anchor with a double length sling (or unclip a normal quickdraw after you clip the bolt above the roof with an... more >>

Comments: If you blew where he was you'd fall onto a narrow ledge, with a bolt just off of it, or fall down either side of the face. there is a #4 placement above his hands with a commiting stand up move to get to it, then a #5,6 placement on another ledge that sort of protect a step across move.. dicey either way, but not death defying, and closer to easy 5.9 than 5.10.

Comments: awesome route! my partner lukas and i did 11.5hrs to the summit, 14 up and down. plenty of opportunity to short fix pitches.
rack recommendations:
#2 and #3 pecker x 2
a few sawed angles
one set of offset nuts
tricams pink-purple
set of offset master cams
one set of master cams
.75-#3 x3
#4 x2
#5 and #6 x 1
70m ropes

fix a rope from the top of p. 8 to 9 hourglass belay. its a clean pull but takes some shenanigans to get back to the belay.. helps to have firs... more >>

Comments: Great route! More intimidating from the ground. The movement and exposure are wild. This can feel harder if you don't find the good undercling at the second crux ;)
You'll most likely have this side of creek side all to yourself.

Comments: This route is awesome and should get done more often!!! My partner lukas and i did it in a day, 5hr 30min to the summit, up and down total of 7hrs.18th party on the summit. The key was short fixing pitches 1-2, and combining 4-5. Found myself, as usual on most of the other Fisher trade routes, out of my aiders alot on p1-3 making free moves saving time. P.4-5 when combined can be climbed all free by following french free through the last aid part.
The "x" pitch isn... more >>

Comments: Great route that has diverse climbing, solid rock, and safe (if not over bolted, not complaining) bolting and solid anchors. The first pitch is a fun chimney, that is tucked in an alcove, P2 isn't great.

The headwall is AMAZING thin, thoughful face climbing. You can combine P3-4 for a long, continuous, technical pitch, skipping what looked like an uncomfortable semi-hanging belay. We had 20 draws and did some backcleaning where bolts were close together.

The 5th pitch was s... more >>

Comments: Fun route and well worth the effort! A rack singles 0.3-0.75, and doubles 1-4, single 5 and 6 worked well. The first pitch seemed a tad harder than the second pitch, which can easily be layed back for the first half. Route finding is straightforward with great belay stances. Has everything from wide crack to runout slab.

Comments: Here is a good beta photo of EOB with surrounding routes. When I went back and bolted the first pitch, I followed the way I originally went while leading it on gear, hence the rope drag. There really wasn't to much rope drag while leading it on gear, perhaps because there wasn't much gear. In retrospect, I could have straightened the bolted line out on the part before the roof, though that rock looks a little more friable. It is possible to stop above the ... more >>

Comments: This is a great route with each pitch being fun and interesting; bolts and gear right where you need protection. Did the traverse right instead of the 5.10+ V-slot, quick and easy with a cool tunnel up behind chockstone, best to belay before this, unrope and make easy scramble through). Highly recommend continuing on to Acid Crack on Velcro Wall to summit Sheep Rock. You can easily walk down to the raps on the 5.8 to the right of Acid Crack and do two raps (I had a 70m). From there, it... more >>

Comments: There is a variation waiting for someone to bolt it just right of Eye of the Beholders 3rd pitch, stemming up the opposite dihedral. I have top roped, cleaned, and chalked where bolts might go. I lack a drill and bolts, have at it! 5.10, 7 or so bolts.
