Comments: Looks can be deceiving. One of the funnest pitches I've climbed in a while.

Comments: Kevin, you're just a pulling down machine. Great route with some really fun climbing on the lower half and the pumpy finish.

Comments: You can reach this alternate start via the rappel atop P2. My buddy Adam and I climbed this last weekend, sort of. Rap to a hanging belay in the hand crack just above a roof. This is just atop and out of the gully where the crack originates. I went into the gully another 60 ft. or so for a seemingly comfortable belay stance. Instead, I just got rained on with smaller choss, and the climbing is poor and vegetated. Once we gained the "clean" hand crack, it was fantastic. The second pitch being th... more >>

Comments: After years of looking at the striking giant roofs and headwall, my friend Cody and I climbed this mega classic yesterday. Again I would like to thank Scott B. for replacing those bolts as the headwall pitch is not to be missed, especially now that the hardware was updated.

The pins in the roofs are good. The "anchor" atop the first pitch is so-so, but like Scott said, you can back it up. If you're not pumped silly, keep going through the next roof. You will find an upward-pointing flake to sl... more >>

Comments: Spectacular route! The gear is tricky down low, but it is there. I felt like this was easier than other 11+ routes in the canyon. I give it 11c PG-13. At the top, I finished on the right set of anchors, not the Grand Course anchors. This allows for lowering to the pinnacle with a 60m cord. There are now bolted anchors on this route.

Comments: I agree with the 12+ rating. The gear is certainly no more than PG. It's a little run out on the lower section but you won't deck, and the climbing is easy.
