Comments: Really nice route with enjoyable moves. There is a chunk of rock that will likely come off in the not too distant future that people may want to be aware of.

It's the block of stone that was, IMO, the most obvious left hand for the start and, based on rubber smear, is used a lot as a foot hold in the moves past the first bolt.

It's too low to be a danger for the belayer but, if it came off as someone was pulling onto the route it could lead to a surprising deck fall that would be short but c... more >>

Comments: A little grungy getting to below 3rd bolt. Fun climbing from there. And, a bit run out if you didn't bring any gear to place between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.

Comments: Fun route. Crux is def getting past the 1st & 2nd bolt. Fun, easy climbing up top w/enough run out to keep you on your toes.

Comments: How is this named and graded if no one has sent it yet? Shouldn't that be left to the FA'er?

Comments: This is a fun route. I was surprised by the strenuous work required to pull over the two roofs.

Comments: I think this route is more fun if you stay to the right of the bolt line.

Comments: Climbed this on 5/27. An enjoyable climb that will clean up nicely with a little time and traffic. Either I didn't see a couple key holds through the slabby section about 2/3 of the way up or this is one of the most challenging 5.8s I've climbed.

Edit: I climbed this again on 9/18 and, either because the route is now cleaner or because I was paying more attention or both, route finding through the slabby section was much easier.

Comments: High on my list of favorite Front Range climbs. Thanks to Thor!

A fun sequence of jugs to the roof. And, then the business begins. Beginning with the pull past the roof, I found each move to be progressively harder than the one before it with little opportunity to rest and a challenging sequence of moves waiting for the run out from the last bolt to the anchors.

And, the other posters are right. That last run out holds the potential for a fun, long ride. I enjoyed a few 15-20 footers.

Comments: Climbed this today. It was okay but it's not worth the hike IMO. Each pitch has a couple fun moves but there's far more scrambling over rock ledges covered in vegetation than climbing.

Also, might I suggest that people posting route information use the return key occasionally? It's painful to try and read the description on here.

Comments: A really fun climb with some thought provoking, enjoyable moves. The climb definitely needs a little cleaning. Some of the holds are going to come off in the near future, including the jug just past the slabby section and the 3rd or 4th bolt. When that one comes off, that section may become the crux and it will likely be a harder climb.

Comments: This is a fun climb. It's definitely not 11 once you get past the roof. IMO, the climbing past the roof is, as my buddy said, not memorable. Moving through the roof is fun, though, and I'd give it at least a hard 10 rating. It's a little heady for the clip protecting that section because the holds are a bit sketchy and there are a couple features below that have the potential to make a fall nasty.

Comments: According to one report, John Bachar was still breathing when the rescue team arrived and he died shortly after arrival at Mammoth hospital. I bring this up because it is worth mentioning that he was not completely alone when he passed.

Comments: A really fun climb! Steep after the first few bolts but not too pumpy. Thought provoking.

Comments: A really fun climb. The second roof is definitely the crux. Find your feet fast or you're going to be staring at the anchors wondering how in the hell to move up.

Comments: A nice climb. I don't know about 10, though. Maybe that's because there's a solid stance and a bolt waiting for you after each move. But, I was lulled into a casual state of mind to be startled awake when I got to the last move. Where did the bomber hands and feet go? You mean I'm actually going to have to think now! :)

As for whether or not the first bolt is needed...I've climbed a lot of routes with the first bolt as high up as the second bolt on this climb and there's a pretty good slab to s... more >>

Comments: This is a fun climb and a really good climb for someone beginning to lead on trad. There are many spots to place gear from very solid stances. And, the left line around the roof on P2 creates the feel that you're on something a little harder than a .5. But, the holds are huge.

Comments: This is a fun climb with a lot of options: pockets, flakes, some super-spiny crimpers and solid feet the entire way. Be aware...there are a number of hollow sounding flakes and blocks, including the slab at the base of the climb. It is completely detached from the wall and rock below it.

Comments: I climbed this on 3/25 and pulled off one of the holds along with a big chunk of rock surrounding it, which made things exciting for my belayer. I was a bit amped up on adrenaline afterward and can't say which bolt I'd passed before it happened but I think it was between the 4th and 5th. I doubt the grade of the route is affected but would be curious to see if anyone else notices the hold's absence.
