Comments: Can this rope be done with a single 70m? Wanted to get on it, but wasn't sure if I'd be able to get back to the ground with one rope.

Thanks!

Comments: The climbing is pretty straightforward to the high first bolt. If you are comfortable with heights and a confident climber, it should not be a problem. If concerned, there are plenty of places low to plug some gear.

Comments: Climbed this route during both dry and wet conditions. The lower pitch gets wet, but the jams are solid even while it is raining. The upper pitch (and crux) stay pretty dry during rain, as a slight overhang above provides some shelter. I don't recommend climbing Satan's during wet conditions, but lightening and thunder forced a quick retreat from the summit, and abandoned gear on the route required recovery. Good times.

Comments: This must be the route on the far right, as indicated in previous comments.

The last route on the left starts in a funky corner, on the slabs. By starting directly below the first bolt, I thought this was much harder than 5.9, more like a hard .10 or even .11. Perhaps I was not supposed to start deep in the corner, but it seemed to make sense. After the 3rd bolt, it eases up to 5.9. Cool moves on the face after the 3rd bolt.

Comments: Climbed Black Streak on the 4th of July. Very little snow remaining at the base of the climb. Linked pitches 2-3 and 5-6 together, as suggested in previous comments, using 70m rope. For pitch 7, followed the 3 bolts up the direct start, used a #1 Camalot mid-way through ~35 foot run-out, then followed 4 more bolts, trending to the left, to the summit. Walked off. Beautiful day to be in the mountains.

Comments: Thoroughly enjoyed this climb. I thought it was 5.10, but I am an amateur in off-width cracks. I just plunged deep into the chasm and felt pretty solid working my way on up. I built an anchor at the top (to reduce rope drag which would have been horrendous if I went straight over the the chains), as well as clipping the rap anchors, to lower off and top-rope another climber up to clean. 70m rope was fine.

Comments: Worth the hike for the solitude. No anchors at the belay station, so bring some #0.5-#2 cams to build. Plenty of room. The second pitch is airy and fun, especially if you don't pull onto the stab and want to make the route a little more adventurous (read: dangerous). Room at the top for a picnic. 70m rope from the chain anchors on top would have gotten us to the ground, but we had two ropes anyways.

Comments: Great rock with scenic views at the top. The start is the most challenging part. Lowered off with no problems using a 70m rope.

Comments: Forgot to read the comments or check the guidebook before climbing this route. Saw some bolts and went for it. Ended up running it out until I was able to traverse a little link up with Live Wire. Then ran that out for a ways from the last bolt to the top. All in all, fun routes!!
