Comments: Our sport climbing "style" is determined by how difficult we can make the clipping stances? haha...I'm out!

Comments: SCARY loose block resting in the crack on P3... We "x"ed it with chalk (that won't last long though), but please be careful! It could definitely hurt somebody

Comments: I agree with the previous statements: if you stick to the thinner face both at the first bolt and the last 2 bolts and avoid going left, it definitely seems 10a, but otherwise 5.9 or easier. Kind of contrived, but a decent route if you're in the area.

Comments: Pitches 2 & 3 (as described in the beta photo), can be easily linked, even with a 60m. I led it on a 70m and just barely used half the rope by the time I arrived at pine tree ledge. Be careful with extending pro, especially in the overlaps/flakes beneath the roof if doing it like this though! I set up pretty gnarly drag which made some of the upper ~5.7 friction moves a little spicier ;)

Comments: This climb definitely seems overlooked. It's super splitter, albeit a little hard to get to, and the ants biting you at the the belay beneath the climb sure didn't help :P

Super fun climb, but did feel a bit sandbagged, even for the area.

Comments: Anyone know what's up with that squeeze to the right of "Talk to Me" 11a? Some of those bolts are literally 3 feet away from the bolt line on Talk to Me . . .

Comments: Fun Climb. Did it today in 3 pitches with a 60m rope. The entire corner is a little less than a full rope length to lunch ledge (maybe 55-57 m in total?), and you should not suffer any rope drag if you're mindful with placement locations since it's a pretty straight line.

Definitely link it unless you and your partner both want in on leading the corner. I enjoyed it more toward the top anyhow. The slab finish was good too and pretty mellow!

Comments: What a fun route! I liked this a little more than Ricochet and felt it was more consistant and sustained for the grade. Clips certainly easier if you're a little taller, but still should be manageable regardless. Highly recommended.
