Comments: Probably the coolest climb I did on my first visit to Spearfish. This route ROCKS!! Amazing postion, movement, and Rock. Tricky to onsight due to the hidden nature of the holds.

Comments: This is a great route. It has fun climbing up the aręte . But at the top You have to do a scary move and risk falling over an overhang to clip a bolt where if it were 3-6 inches lower could be clipped from a stance. I don't get it. The hard climbing is over once you clip the hard to clip bolt so it is almost pointless to have were it is. Also, even more confusing there are 2 chopped bolts right were the current bolt should be located, in a spot where you can clip it. Doesn't make sense for a ro... more >>

Comments: This is an Awesome climb, but I second what Phil says. Shit can happen and I don't like having one bolt between me on the technical crux and a 25’ plus fall to the rocks below. It's possible that I just didn't look hard enough but I didn't find anything I would call adequate protection to put in leading up to the first bolt. By adequate I mean something I would be confident could hold the fall if that first bolt failed. Getting to the first bolt is a bit sketchy but my concern is more about m... more >>

Comments: Sorry but I feel compelled to speak up on this subject. No disrespect to anyone is intended. In fact this comment is all about respect. Adding bolts to some elses's route to make it less scary or convenient without getting permission from the FA'ers is bad style and disrespectful. PERIOD....

With the advent of sport grid bolting in Boulder Canyon, I can understand how this ethic is being lost or not understood by newer generations of climbers. In fact, it might not be understood by some in the... more >>

Comments: This route is awesome and was feared by most back in the day. The knife blade that was originally their didn't offer much even in the form of psychological pro. Thought it was closer to 11+ back then but that was in EB's. Hell of a lead by Mr. Smoot! I did a continuation of this route with Mark Rolofson and Les Ellison. @ 1983 It adds some more run out 5.10 climbing up and left from the end of the roof and was some pretty good climbing as I recall.
We called it the Lunch Bucket variation.
