Comments: Pretty fun with extension. I think this is 11-... based a cold day ascent and on the old hand drawn guide by steve pope. The extension felt 10c-ish. Pretty good although the ledge below the extension was something to consider.

Comments: What an amazing climb. Many moves from the bottom on up and rock quality that gets better the higher you go. The crux had a little crumbly rock around the feet but the upper several cruxes were better and on stellar stone. There were 13 draws to independant anchors up on a ledge above. They were too far up there to get down with one rope. There are currently biners on the top two bolts which is how I lowered down. Using the Hanging Chain anchors only makes sense if you are trying to TR bef... more >>

Comments: Wow... from the slab on up through many wild moves and a baddass finish. Very good addition and amazing it had been overlooked for so long. Currently many fixed nuts that give it a nice sporty feel and a single set is sufficient. Did you guys place the anchor? If so that's a wild place to put it.... just my thoughts... but it would be lame if you didn't have to do that final wildness. It stacks up with the classics around it real nice.

Comments: Linking into this from King of kings is insane! With the added slings to cut back on rope drag, the fall potential was wild. I was too pumped to place, but there is some gear along the way that could minimize the action between bolts. Good job placing the bomber bolts... and so few... kept it exciting. There are some sharp edges my rope ran over up high but I didn't sling a piece up there so it was my fault. Slings!

Comments: You can place a .75ish cam between the 1st and 2nd bolt and sling it to take the consequences out. Really fun route and I agree with 13a

Comments: Make sure you do one of the two sick extensions when you send the meat. I chose the easier one (left). Definately makes this route awesome.

Comments: Nice Dave... Thought that thing had to be 13 based on the effort you were putting into it while floating up everything else in the area. Can't wait to check it out some day.

Comments: Wild and full value. Another stout 12b at the bald. Using one rope requires quite a few runners but isn't too bad. Currently a fixed nut right after the crux won't keep you from taking flight since you will most likely peel off before being able to clip it. It does tame things a bit on the send though. An amazing complement to Spry look. This one is not nearly as crimpy but is pretty extreme on pump. Bring a nut tool to clean out the fixed stuff please.

Comments: Not sure where this is pg-13. Very easy to lead safely and not scary. Great movement but only 2 stars due to the two drilled pockets that unlock the blank rock up top.

Comments: Direct finish felt 12a for sure, maybe it was just the size of the holds you're on relative to the runout above gear.

Comments: Keep stemming higher! The anchors were gone but it was easy to down climb back to the top bolt and lower on someone's leaver biner. There is a fixed nut now but it is a drag to lower off of. It would be cooler to continue and link it in to the second pitch.

Comments: The third pitch went free at 11+ 4/16/12. The crux involves wild crack protected face moves on great holds. Had to down aid the crack to get back to budweiser to get off. It's either that or top out on chunky terrain and find a way off or rap off a lone bolt. Pretty fun climb overall.

Comments: The first three pitches are pretty cool. Don't be expecting "astroman", not even astroboy in height, but that doesn't change the fact that the physical nature of this will wear you out. The general burliness makes the technical crux feel nice and dainty. The hike was really easy and fast despite the length while the drive in was long and sucked. Good route, enjoy.

Comments: First of all, Great route as everybody keeps saying. The crux is a workout. Now, either my blue alien sized pieces are worn or the crack has gotten bigger. I could not place a single blue alien size on pitch one. It took blue tcu/green alien tightly, and it liked it the whole way. I rechecked this numberous times including on the rappel just to double check reality. So more like 4-6 worn green aliens, blue tcus, or the c3s that are a hair smaller than green alien. Currently there is a pur... more >>

Comments: Oh sorry to mislead... I sent on the day of my last post. I wouldn't have added my cents otherwise. Great route Mike. Its fun to be following in your footsteps... now if I could only link the first 3 pitches of Shangri-la on gear. Damn, you set the bar high on that one.
