Comments: Climbed this mainly because the tunnel pitch sounded unique, even though I kind of hate chimneys, so it was my own fault, but wasn't really into this climb. Found the first pitch hand traverse less secure than I was hoping since I didn't put in any gear to avoid drag. Pitch 2 not bad. Pitch 3 sucked. Not sure if I got sucked too far in, but I got into a spot midway up that didn't have very secure feet and was too tight to really smear, and no gear in. Wish I had tried the bolted 5.8 variatio... more >>

Comments: This was probably my favorite climb of this trip. Good variety and interesting moves I thought. Almost bailed looking up to first bolt on the balls pitch, but the climbing wasn't that bad to get to it. After clipping I was much happier rest of the way up and grabbing the flake exiting was some relief. On the 2nd rap in the gully went right by bolted anchors only to end up almost to the knots at the end of the rope with 15' to go. Had to "up-rappel" and then saw them on climbers left on ledg... more >>

Comments: We were on this climb Wednesday and not one other party showed up the whole time. I was shocked! Fun climb, but didn't get to do what sounds like the funnest pitch because new rope was twisting so bad was having trouble getting it through belay device on pitch 4, which was a little nerve racking.

Comments: Nice climb, maybe a little harder than some other 5.6 pitches we did on other climbs this week. P1 - great holds, but steep start, good gear. P2 - Not a jug fest, expect to do some jamming, but jams were really good, and gear good. Slung some cams long to try to avoid them walking deep. Wasn't sure if I was looking for bolted or gear anchor, ended up at some bolted anchor that I now think was part of a sport route. Tried going "up and right" to find descent into gully and of course didn't f... more >>

Comments: I like gear, so I can relate. I make a sad frowny-face when I don't have the piece I really wish I had.

Comments: P1 - Blocky move up to traverse move. Traverse move looks harder until you start to try it, then really not bad with a small layback. Exiting dihedral above was harder I thought, not sure if people climb the big sketchy block on right instead sometimes?
P2 - A little awkward at parts, layback to stem, repeat. Had to be careful not to place cams where they could walk into deep cracks.

Overall not a bad climb, protection was all there (didn't need #4, but wouldn't have hurt to have it ei... more >>

Comments: Does anyone happen to know if the nice looking crack about 10 ft to the right of "Story of O" pitch 3 is "Vacation Cracks"? Wasn't 100% clear to me from the guidebook.

Comments: I wish I'd just gone straight all the way up the corner and done the traverse at the top. I'm not sure where the diagonal route goes, but I ended up all over the place trying get gear in to protect the second. Also didn't think the anchor building options at either belay were that spectacular, which would probably suck if it was your first lead. Overall didn't find this climb to be all that anyways.

Comments: We had come down that end to avoid the crowds, did this climb and then did "A long walk for man, a short climb for mankind". Both were mostly easy climbs with one or two harder moves, and if I were grading them probably would've put them at the same grade. It's all subjective. If your short, a key hold just out of reach might make a climb feel harder, and if you're tall, being scrunched traversing under a roof might feel harder. P1: dirty, really easy but not much pro, just be careful not to... more >>

Comments: Climbed this Easter weekend because it was super busy up front. Fun route, climbed all the way to roof and traversed directly underneath, which felt easier than 5.4, except maybe the exit around the edge of the roof. It looked like traversing the face below the roof was possible, probably harder, and dirty. Gear was good. The belay is somewhat hanging under a massive tree though. A single 8ft sling wasn't enough to make it around it and get a knot in it. The rap anchor on that tree had 4 p... more >>

Comments: There is a nice looking crack to the right of the start of the 3rd pitch. Does anyone know what this is? It seems not far enough right for vacation cracks, but when I looked for vacation cracks from the description in the guidebook I wasn't sure I saw that either.
