The crack to the lower right is the top of the 5.10 TR climb "Toiling Men."  Since I didn't climb it, I won't post a description. <br /> <br />Oh yeah, you can also camp up there.

Comments: This climb took us 12 hours tent-to-tent. 1.25 hours of approaching, 7.75 hours of climbing, and 4 hours of descending. The descent is not trivial. Watch out for (massive!) loose blocks will become easily dislodged and kill someone if a group is below you.

There's a little of everything on this route. Be prepared and climb as efficiently as possible.

Comments: Yet another vote for the BrutusOfWyde topo from Summitpost. Between that and studying a number of pictures available online, sticking to the route was easier than expected.

This is a cool route up a cool rock in a very cool setting. I used literally every anchor building technique I'd ever learned on this route. It is not for the budding 5.8 climber. Efficiency and proficiency are key to summiting in a reasonable amount of time.

Comments: An amazing route! Really cool to climb through the question mark.

Beta alert:

The 10a crux is not that bad. The 10b crux above it is spicy. Make sure your first cam or nut in that dihedral is bomber. It's a long way to the next good handhold and protection.

The book indicates that the second pitch crux is after the piton. This is incorrect: the piton marks the end of the crux.

There are more than two bolts on the face above the 2nd pitch crux. Choose wisely or make a nice zig-zagging l... more >>

Comments: Definitely worth more than the one star it's given in the guidebook.

Didn't find cam or nut placements necessary. Some hunting will reveal secure feet. Way to save the crux for the last 10 feet of the climb! Good, long climb.

Comments: Heady. The largest piece was a BD #0.75 near the beginning in the vertical crack.

For the belay, go up and over, sling a patina plate and then use two blue alien sized pieces in the crack. Can't see your climber, but the corridors carry voices very easily.

Comments: Stout for a supposed beginner area, but probably a realistic grade.
