Comments: A #2 and/or a .5/.75 Camalot makes getting to the first bolt fairly safe. If following at your limit, be careful after unclipping the second bolt because of the swing potential.

Comments: Still horribly dirty; scary first bolt with spinning hanger; glad I didn't lead it; plenty of TR equipment on top.

Comments: Nice shot!
How long is the rap? Can it be done with a single rope? (30 m 40 m or 70 m)

Comments: I agree, best route on the wall. I prefer trad, but this would be crappy on gear. Always ask before you drill, though.

Comments: Great route for practicing jams of various sizes and for placing cams. Very safe for a newer leader [as long as they can get up 5.9 crack]. The crux will likely be hand size dependent.

Comments: Very fun. I used a couple holds on the arete about two thirds of the way up. Didn't seem like I was cheating, but it also didn't feel as hard as 10c.

Comments: Spectacular line in a spectacular place! I concur that no move seemed harder than 10a, but you would need to be able to cruise 5.10 to actually send it on lead due to the elevation.

We cut down a tattered rope, replaced the oldest looking webbing at both belays, and removed discarded webbing left deep in the summit crack. LNT - or as little as possible.

Comments: Dirty and debris covered when we climbed it. Bring a whisk broom up there on a quiet day.

Comments: I think we climbed this [1 route right of Dangle], but the description and picture seem off. [Eds. now relabeled & moved] The guidebook seems off too - or maybe there is a new route.
Short, easy slab to ledge followed by 2 bulges; finish up and right. Upper bulge has hollow flakes. The bolts just over each bulge seem too far to the left- perhaps due to rock conditions.

Comments: Steep for an 8. Would be fun if you weren't worried about killing your belayer with rockfall. In fairness, we pulled nothing off, but that might just be because we were extra careful given the shattered nature of the rock.

Comments: The bolt placements give you freedom to climb on or off the arete as much as you want and control the grade from 10- to 10+.

I love climbing big features like this!

Comments: Not good for a beginner, but bolts are well placed if you are comfortable at the grade.
