The metal pole is present and very useful!

Comments: P1+2 is still a long, scary, physical, phenomenal pitch! Nothing has broken off P2...yet.

Comments: If you guessed that Mountain Project rotated it along a vertical axis, you are correct.

Comments: Fun, burly climbing! Definitely old-school rating.

Rack: felt pretty good having doubles from 0.4-2 Camalots, plus nuts and tricams.

The pitch leading up to the roof is fantastic! Belayed at the left corner of the roof for a hanging belay, but it made for a great pitch and a good belay for the short roof pitch. The pitch after the roof is also tricky and devious, glad I had experience from Lumpy on flared cracks :P

Get on this, it's adventurous and fun!

Comments: Great route! Slab, chimney, roofs, and handcracks - a nice, full mix of climbing.

A few thoughts:

  • Rack: RPs, a single set of nuts, small cams to #0.3, doubles from #0.4 to #4 (C4), and one #5.

  • The #5 was useless on P11, as that crack is #6 the entire time you're in it. I cursed a bit as I was climbing it in the dark, bumping up the tipped-out #5 in the hopes of finding its happy place, but luckily the climbing is only 5.8. We found the #5 use...

Comments: Significantly harder if you don't squeeze P1 but super fun! Horizontal chimneying at its finest. That runout is quite heady as well.

Comments: Thank you! They do, but they led immediately to that rotten dihedral, so we veered left.

Comments: I found the first pitch to be thoughtfully bolted and well worth linking into the crux pitch!

Comments: I thought about it for a while; felt like 5.8 to me. Big swing for the follower if they blow it at the second clip. Glad I didn't get my novice follower on this one!

Comments: Great route! I agree that it will be a four star route with some cleaning. But I liked some of the grunge, it added to the adventure.

I left some bomber hardware on the second and third (from the top) rappel stations. I used Maillon Rapide quick links on all the bolts, and two Omega Pacific Rings on the second station, and a steel ring and two rolled Al rings on the third station.

Comments: I used two C4 #6's and a #3 Big Bro. Coulda put some more big gear in, but that protects it quite well. The left option is good!
