Comments: Best 13- at Tieranny. Unsure why is gets docked a star in the guide book...along with Canyon Man, which is the 2nd best route at Tieranny. Way better than the steeper thuggy routes that all get five stars.

Comments: Funny...the "traverse" is not hard at all, although committing, not hard. It's the moves off of the ledge right after that are the hardest and mildly awkward.

Comments: Yeah. 13a by itself to the break, in my opinion. Out to the sloper rail is powerful, the moves over the roof are easily 5.12 and not over until you have moved out left past the last bolt. I'd say 13a to the break...then 15-20 feet of 5.12/mid 5.12 and then 5.10 to the anchor. I don't know where I got 12 feet from.

Best 13a I've done anywhere.

Comments: Crux, for me, was matching crack hold, cutting feet and staying on the wall. Mantle is rough too...don't take it for granted, get it wired.

Comments: Kurk the Roach is actually not the problem you are referring to. It is to the left of this problem you describe. Comes out a roof on edges to a sloping pinch, then moves through more slopers and a really cool soft ball-like hold at the top.

Comments: So I take it this route isn't 35 feet if you need a 70m rope?

Comments: Copying straight from the guidebook to this website isn't exactly the best form, IMO. Tell us something that we don't get from the book...that is assuming you have even climbed the route.

Comments: Thought this route was cool until I realized you could climb the jug filled crack 2 feet to the right of the bolt line the whole way up. The moves to the left of the crack are cool...but the route is indeed an eliminate this way.

Comments: I would up doing the "shadow" move at the hole. Pretty great route. The move to the hole, while big, didn't seem to be the crux in my opinion...it's the moves after that are the hardest. The intro slab is kinda hard, 5.12...on perfect rock. The moves from the rest to the chains climb like a long V7 or so. One of my personal favorites at the New.

Comments: I'll confirm this. The yellow tcu does indeed work. My gf placed it on her send and said it fit perfectly.

Comments: I'll also add that one needs a LONG sling on the last bolt in order to clip it from the clipping hold...otherwise you're hosed.

Comments: Very doable for the grade.. Great rests, friendly holds, and just enough Endless oddity to make this route a great first for the area. I'd recommend sticking the 2nd bolt as there's a hard, balance-y move at the height of the run b/t the first and second and a fall would have you slamming into your belayer.

Comments: Agree. Very straight forward route, not your typical NRG route. ALso, it's not 90ft, more like 60-70 feet at the most. One of the best though.

Comments: Amazing route. I remember when the anchors on this thing were gone and you had to do the last move to where the anchor is now...then run it out all the way to the 5.8's anchors and lower. Super fun that way!

Comments: Why would anyone hike DOWN the rifle pits trail, across the upper truck trail, then back UP the gum springs trail? That's horrible hiking beta. You can just stick to the Bluff trail the whole way...it's flat the whole time. From Cravens it's 1.5 miles to Sunset.
