Comments: I just bolted a sit start variation for the first pitch, 27 bolts 45 feet... bumps the grade to 5.11b/c... which will help my stats on 8a

Nice work on this line by the way. Looks like a hell of an adventure.

Comments: We only replaced the second rappel anchors.... or the anchors for the bottom rappel. The upper rap anchor had a decent bolt and and a 'no gud' bolt... but seemed to be in good shape. We cleaned all the shitty old webbing off the raps and replaced it with chain.

Comments: Mountainems, I am glad you liked the route! Ya the last pitch is crazy... When we did it, we called it 5.10... I thought that if it was on the ground, it would be about a V0 boulder problem... But 300' in the air, things are a little different! I will agree that it is not 5.10 after many people have done it... probably in the 5.11- range? It seems like people either send it no problem or grab a draw and/or all of them! I feel it has more to do with your head rather than strength. Anyway, good jo... more >>

Comments: All bolts replaced 4-24-09 except one anchor bolt because a lack of tools. Will be revisited.

Comments: All bolts replaced 4-24-09 except second bolt because it was pretty new. Piton at the roof broke off inside the hole mid-shaft on second pull.

Comments: All bolts replaced 4-24-09 except 1st bolt which was pretty new. Piton came out with ease.

Comments: Ya Paul,
Probably the same wall. We found and pulled a few OLD and I mean really really old pitons on the slabs below the 2nd pitch and some slings on a bush at the ledge atop the 2nd pitch. The pins are about 7 inches long and made out of a flat stock steel. There is a logo stamped on them that has some german looking words on them... anyway...Looked like whoever placed the pins and slings were gulley climbing to the left of the route.

Comments: What an awesome route! Did it for the first time on Saturday and had a blast. I agree with Anthony, that old crummy bolt on the 5th pitch is not really necessary (not with modern day gear at least)... I had good gear before and after it and the climbing at that bolt is kind of mellow... the fixed pin above is more where the crux is and there is a bomber purple tcu right next to it.... so ya, don't lose sleep over it.
Right now there are a lot of cairns marking the turn and the correct wash that... more >>

Comments: This route is stout... This thing took me so long to do just because of the pain... I could only get a few tries each day. So short and so painful! Hats off to the guys that did this thing on nuts!
I used, in this order...
.5 Camalot
Yellow Metolius
Purple C3
Yellow Metolius
#3 Camalot

Comments: First pitch is 5.8 or so... kind of chossy but short. Pitch two is the business.

Comments: Oh no!!! Bummer. There is actually good gear after that roof. You just have to peek around the flake to the left. Bomber nuts and small cams. Once you get the bolt there is good gear above to get you to the anchors. Spicy move stepping right to the anchor ledge! Good go at it! Lets get that #3 back to Bennett!

Comments: It's a pretty good little spire but I wouldn't give it 4 stars... more around 2 or 3. Definitely worth the hike though. Check out the fun 5.10 TR where the rap is. A little dirty. Enjoy.
