Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. MORE INFO >>>


This problem is on the magoo closest to the access road it is on the left hand side while facing the rock from the road. It is route 7 on my pretty little picture.

Start with both hands on the arete and work your way up then over right until you can top out.

Again, just to be clear. The name given here is not necessarily the proper name for this problem.

There is a problem called The Edge on 360 degree rock. Route 7 in this picture looks more like it points to Bates Problem to me.

This is the Bates Problem, isn't it? Or is it a variation not using the right start hold for the Bates Problem?

It finally dawned on me what this is supposed to be...

This is the Sit Start for the Bates Problem. The topo is incorrect, in that it shows this starting with the Bates Problem.

The SDS is definitely V2. The stand start, not so much. The stand start goes V0 (V0+ or harder if you're short).
