Grade conversion chart.


The first pitch has a 6b or 5.10d move. It has classic edge granite to a double bolt belay. This belay station shares Midnight in Paris.

The second pitch is 8b+ or 5.14c (lower part): climb to The Treasure Island, leading to golden granite. It has a tenuous beginning and a fantastic and moderate finish. This is a must do. There are double bolt rings.


This is on the Lower East Buttress, East of Jungle Gym. It is a 7 minute approach from our house, versus 3 minutes for the Jungle Gym.

These Ophir routes sound cool but the Euro/YDS grade conversion is 8b/13d, 8b+/14a, 8c/14b, 8c+/14c, 9a/14d. Maybe edit the description?
