Comments: Sorry if this sounds preachy, but please use a top-rope setup from the anchors. I was out with a first-timer last weekend and noted that the set of eye-bolts i was using was already worn 1/4 of the way through the bolt.

(And realistically 99% of people reading this site are already concientious enough to use a top-rope setup. I just hate seeing people saw through the bolts on popular routes like C-Gap and West Point Crack)

I'll get off the soap-box now.

Comments: Blame the lack of sleep or the crack. I meant that this is looking north-by-northwest (from the south-east side of the pinnacle)

Comments: Does anyone know if the picture below is of the 1st middle buttress? I want to say that this shot was looking south by south-west from the top of the 2nd pitch of the Army route on the pinnacle (I think I"m one buttress off because its a touch west, but thought I'd ask before going on an epic)

Comments: I really should wait until I get on the route again (which was supposed to be today, rain). However I want to say that the rating could reflect different variations at the crux. Particularly that the right side of the bolt line is a bit steeper and with less features than the left side (which features a conveniently placed bush, though its debateable if that's on-route for those ticking low-mid grade sport routes. sadly, like me).

Comments: I hate it when I have the ability to answer my own questions (had to go come and dig through a stack of periodicals to find my R&I). Since I haven't climbed the routes, and know nothing about them I'll take liberally from the authors (working L to R, after Climbing by the Brooks:

The Full Male Deal (5.10c) 2 pitchesCool Runnings (5.12d/13a)Project Cave Route (5.13)The Dance of Shiva (5.12c)Crickets in the Cabbage (5.10d)The Disclaimer (5.11b/c)

Quick note about R&I #95. When i bought m... more >>

Comments: Does anyone know the other lines (especially the bolted route above the fireplace)?
