Comments: I'm thinking more like Martian than Lunar. In fact I bet there are places like this on Mars.

Comments: Hi Jackie, you probably already know this but "lightening" is a verb, which means to lighten, or make less heavy. Whereas "lightning" is a bolt of static electricity usually caused by atmospheric differences in pressure/temperature.

Comments: Not stainless, but surface corrosion of carbon steel is not an issue for overall strength.

Comments: Messed up my Subaru Outback on the approach road once, a long time ago. Now I have a Land Rover and no worries.

Comments: I only did four routes here, but three of them had very odd conclusions; it seemed like I'd clip the final anchors then pull another move. So, while I understand that the anchors are placed optimally to allow the rope to run, I felt kinda robbed at the end.

Comments: Not 5.9 unless today I was completely off form. More like 5.10b or c for me considering how much I flailed.

Comments: After the open moves on pretty good jugs there's a pretty darn tough move on small holds - a huge handrail broke off here about 15 years ago. After pulling that move energy reserves are key to completing the route.

Reardon used to solo this one - pretty stunning.
