Comments: So what I'm seeing here is that the DL climbing Illuminati has two weeks to climb and determine if this so called route is worthy of being posted on MP. We eagerly anticipate your decision!

BTW, it is also DL tradition that in order to pass judgement on a route you MUST send!

Comments: James! You stole the, that climb, "bad beta" idea from me! Slowly but surely we are coming closer together...and you quoted me on the Enormocast. My ego beems when I hear you talk. Bravo!

In a related note the bad beta=new climb idea has solidly been established for bouldering at DL so why not on routes too?

Comments: Stick clip? Lame. Than you are just top roping, not that there's anything wrong with that. Might as well pull all the bolts and TR from the top.

Comments: Welcome to Idy slab Ivan. That finish is 5.7 and not considered R because the moves are so much easier than the rest of the route. You will get used to that :)

Comments: I didn't find too many exfoliating holds, pretty fun slab and worth doing.

Comments: Redid this today, I think the crux is between bolt three and four, moving into it from a nice knob out right. Vogel and Gaines says it goes straight up from bolt 3 but I wasn't seeing it.

Comments: Vogel and Gaines has the crux between the first and second bolt at 10b, felt way easier.

Comments: This starts directly below the first bolt of funny face. I also started it same as Noondance, under cling under the small roof and then moving up on right to a shallow pocket, fun this way and easier than 11c.

Comments: The start is right of the 5.7 crack, straight up to the bolt. Cool pockets up above.

Comments: Ya, thanks to whomever fixed it, wasn't me, I didn't have the details when I posted. Must have been one of those sneaky admins.

Comments: The R is about 5.10 and between the 3rd and 4th bolts, I calmed it down a touch by stepping right a few feet and clipping a bolt on Chingladera with a long runner. This route really made me think and do some down and around climbing to unlock the cruxs.

Comments: Bring your smallest up to a #1 and some small nuts, one set, that should do it.

Comments: P1 is a great finger crack. We replaced slings on the anchor but the right bolt looks a bit grim, old button heads with SMC hangers. Was going to do P2 but the bolts look like quarter inchers with those square nuts. I will have to rap in later and check them out.

Comments: I split P2 into two pitches, glad I did because it ain't over till it's over. P2 is way fun.

Comments: I rapped in and did the final pitch, an excellent flake that goes at about 10a. From the last belay there's also a newer variation that is in Bob's new guide book, 11c but I can't remember the name.

Comments: This would have been better if the dihedral was cleaner. Could be a better and safer start to Legends of the Fall.
