Comments: My girlfriend and I are wanting to do some climbing in Wyoming from early to mid May. Cragging from 5-easy to 5.12. How is Ten Sleep and Wild Iris during this time period? Still cold? Are the roads generally clear enough for a 2WD pickup?

Thanks!

Comments: I'm glad this got put on to MP as a 5.10c as that's what Tim swore the grade was. With my crappy technique, I always thought is was a bit harder.

Comments: The FFA of Northern Pearl was a free solo. After six hours of cleaning this route, 5 more minutes in a harness didn't seem appealing!

Comments: Detached, but seemingly stable blocks form the left side of the crack on the top half of Pearl Jam; because of this, all gear placements through this section are suspect.

Detached blocks are highlighted in red.

Comments: "So this route is 12a to the first anchors right? Then 12c to the 2nd anchors?"

Yes. To clarify the route description above, the 5.12c section is not another pitch, it's the complete line.

Comments: Interesting climb. The challenge of the crux drew me in. Reaching the two finger pocket is a full extension deadpoint for me (at 5'9" tall). And then what the hell do you do with your feet?! It took some experimenting and swearing. Thanks for the patient belays!

Hardest 5.11c I've ever done.

Comments: The anchor atop this route has aluminum Metolius hangers (not rap hangers) with nothing on them except for a locking carabiner that's stuck on the right hanger. The next time someone's out there to climb this or neighboring Cliff Dwelling Crack, consider bringing up a pair of pliers to unscrew the carabiner gate that's stuck up there and installing some quicklinks & rings. Replacing the aluminum hangers with steel hangers would be nice also (you'll need a 1/2" socket for the bolts that are up ... more >>

Comments: What a bummer. I always thought it was great that Beacon Rock was listed as being in Oregon. I think it was somewhat of a mischievous climber thing as well as a nod to Jeff Thomas's comment that the best climbing in Oregon is at Beacon Rock (or something to that effect).

Comments: A friend told me that the name came from the risky nature of the climb when lead with only passive protection (as that was all that was available at the time). I can't image climbing I Almost Died with only only nuts and hexes. Yikes!

You can get down Teddy Bear's Picnic with one rope but you'll have to make more than one rappel.

Comments: Here's the set up for top-roping several of the Breakfast Cracks classics.

Blackberry Jam
With a 50 foot (give or take) static rope, tie an end around the large fir tree that's 40 feet back from the top of the climb. Pull the rope to the edge of the climb. During this process you'll be attached to the rope with a Grigri. Tie a loop in the end of the rope and attach a locking carabiner to it. Put the center of your climbing rope through the locking carabiner and toss it over the cliff. Ba... more >>

I replaced the anchor webbing today. The old tat was amazingly well camouflaged with moss and lichen.

Comments: Micah, the anchor bolts at the top of Stairway to Heaven have not been removed (Heaven's Ledge Anchor). The original black Metolius Rap hangers are still there. I talked with Mike bout this. The post above should probably be deleted.

There are bomber placements two feet horizontally from where the first bolt on Stairway to Heaven used to be (C4 #2 or #3).
