Comments: Great fun for an easy family climb. This was our first family multi-pitch climb together. Me, the wife, and our two boys ages 4 and 6. If you're the leader for your group, be ready for a solo more or less. I found one of the two bolts on the route. This is the only pro besides slinging a horn or two. For gear, bring #0.75, #1, #2, #3 Camalots for the frist belay. The seconed belay there are some nice boulders to sling if you have a 20' cord. We rapped off the first tree j... more >>

Comments: I found this route to be alot longer than what is printed in Steve Bechtel's book. You will stretch a 70m rope on this! This information is as per the color coded picture. pitch one is about 300', pitch (#2) 240', pitch (#3) 110', pitch (#4) 70', pitch #5 150', pitch #6 70', then easy 5th and 4th class to the top.

Comments: 1.5 hour approach to base of pitch one. can run pitch 1&2 together with a 70m rope. the 5.8 K crack pitch was fantastic!

Comments: Pitch one - gear is mostly small hands to large fingers (#1, #0.75, #5., red and yellow Alien. I think I placed a #2 also.
Pitch two - 10a finger crack (good feet on face) #1 wire, purple Alien and green Alien at the top for the traverse. Don't go digging deep for jams or gear in flared roof chimney, climb outside edge of chimney for a couple of moves first (good feet just have to look for them), clip bolt, and then get a jam deep in the back of the chimney. As of t... more >>

Comments: Anchor in need of replacement. Right anchor bolt bent and open. Do not recommend lowering off existing anchors.

Comments: Bring a couple of extendable draws maybe 3 total. Only gear needed is doubles from red Alien to #2 Camalot and a couple of big wires for the belay station on the 2nd. My rack is miss matched, so sorry if this doesn't help you with sizes. Plus one yellow Alien.

Comments: No draws needed. (2) #5 @ the bottom, (3) #4s in the middle, (3) #3 at the top. Belay off bolts on top of the Potato Chip. Lower down to rap bolts 30' below at base of slab. 60m rope just touches the ground.

Comments: Gear for lower Ruper. 1 60m rope. No gear needed for belay stations (can sling natural protection or clip bolts on the 2nd), 8-10 2'sling draws, (2) 48" runners, (1) cordellete, one set of small to medium wires, double rack of cams through #1, then only (1) #2, #3, #4. Leave the #3.5 at home (never used). Only used the #2 once one the first pitch. Could probably do without #2 as well.

Comments: I broke off one of the crux holds this weekend. The small two finger crimper tooth above the second bolt is gone. It's going to make this a letter harder I think.

Comments: I agree, this line protects well with passive gear and a couple small cams

Comments: Sustained 5.10 climb. Keep your thinking cap on and don't get suckered to the right. As your standing on a thin ledge half way up, look for a bomber side pull just left of the arete. If you find it, the rest of the hold will fall into place.

Comments: Face climb the darker rock at the bottom. Move right towards the aerate where the rock turns to more of a tan color. You will better hand holds out on the aerate for the last 10 feet of this climb. The bolt anchors are a bit screwy but they work just fine.

Comments: Fun 5.9 until the anchor. Clipping the anchor is the 10b part of this climb.
