PG-13? Can never be too careful on those low-ball traverses. The finish on the southeast arete is fun and b… View Comment

I felt like this route and the one to the left might be mixed up in the guidebook. This felt like 10d, and… View Comment

Pretty incredible outing. It's especially fun if you rent a kayak to get out to the beach, and snorkel… View Comment

An epic climb. Working hard from the bottom to the rest at mid-height, then the pumpathon to the top begins… View Comment

Agree with comment above - though there are better multi-pitch climbs in Tonsai, this is a unique and worth… View Comment

Did the first three pitches, and we were able to get down with a 60m, though with some shenanigans (not str… View Comment

Awesome, long, pumpy route. Felt like solid 11b to me, the pump sneaks up on you! View Comment

Some wild and unique beta on the tufas in the lower section! The rest is not a pumpfest, as described above… View Comment

This is a great route, sustained but never desperate. A nice change from the short overhanging routes on To… View Comment

Fun outing. First pitch felt pumpy for the grade, second pitch felt quite soft. Nice views from the top. View Comment

In contrast to the above description, I thought the first few clips were easy, then the slabby black rock h… View Comment

There is a move between the last two bolts that is ridiculous for short folks. A fun deadline/dyno if you c… View Comment

4 stars for the chimney to layback pitch. I agree with Andrea that a bolt anchor atop this pitch would be i… View Comment

You can climb it with or without the drill hole, and it is easier if you use it. Whether it is "on" is a ma… View Comment

Nice extension. Gotta watch out for the drag on this one... View Comment

Last pitch is indeed not obvious to find. It is about 20 feet right of a small tree on the GT ledge, and 10… View Comment

Yup there is now a 2-bolt anchor atop this one. View Comment

Slightly overhanging? This is most certainly a slab climb, with slabby crux moves. View Comment

I second Kevin's opinion that the gear is great on this, no way it's PG-13. In fact, I would even say it's… View Comment

Actually, dead on... the bolts are all a big reach out left to clip. It is a bit of a joke. View Comment

Probably was a bit more perfect (and easier) in its earlier days... a bit polished now. Wonderful climbing… View Comment
