Comments: As of Saturday, September 14, 2013, a large block just below and a couple feet to the left of the corner is moving enough that we went off route to avoid it.

Comments: This route is so closely bolted, it is amazing for a timid leader (me!)

Comments: P1 certainly has a ledge (ground) fall potential as the face after the top of the pillar is certainly run out to me.

P2 is amazing fun, do the finish that ends in the notch in the roof. I could not have enjoyed it more, and the view from the belay ledge at the top is terrific!

Comments: I have done p2 three different ways, and IMHO, the best finish for my taste is to go straight up from the p2 belay toward the notch in the rock visible clearly overhead. This is a variation, not the original route. The chimney always seemed wet to me.

Comments: I was not aware they couldn't be used interchangeably. I know Sterling makes webbing called Tech Tape. I have regularly seen the two terms referenced together. To be as clear as I can, it is BlueWater 1 inch webbing.

Comments: Tape and rap rings added today to top of p1. If you follow the crack as the gray Dick suggests, be prepared for dirt.

Comments: I think this route is kind of a one move wonder, and that one move is really hard. The rest of the route is 5.7 at best. The bottom (hard part) is interesting enough.

Comments: Although I have no real desire to lead it, I would follow this route all day. I feel this is extremely accessible for the rating. However, expect sustained moves (don't go to heavy on your arms) rather than one show stopper and the rest of the climb being relatively easy.

Comments: Super fun route that is relatively sustained throughout, but I think it is more of a 5.5 sustained. I currently mainly climb around the 5.5 to 5.7 level, so I tend to actually feel the difference between 5.5 and 5.6.

Comments: When I climbed Roddey in April, it was very dirty, and seemed like it had not been climbed in some time.

Comments: I thought this climb was super easy. I am a complete beginner (First year climbing) and to me, P3 was actually easier than P1. However, when I was up there, we had real trouble finding the start. What I think is that the actual P3 (what seems to match the written description in the gray Dick) looks less traveled (not quite as clean) than a variation which appears to match the photo in the gray Dick. The two starts are only about eight feet apart, and we went with the one on the left. It was... more >>
