Comments: It's isn't an ideal setup. Maybe old, but it's bomb proof. The angle of pull in that granite. Unless things have started spinning up there, I never gave it a second thought. Best to carry some extendable slings for the anchor if you intend to top rope.

Comments: Kevin Wilkinson put up the first ascent of this in 2005/6. Originally he rated it 12d, but was projecting 14's at the time.

Watched one guy do six or seven one arm pullups trying to hit the crux. I've got shots of that FA around here somewhere.

Comments: I agree the bolting isn't ideal, but I never had a problem with the setup. My first time on this route it hadn't been thoroughly cleaned up. Since then it has improved to be one of the better 10's in the canyon. Unless your John Gogas, who said it was a hard 5.9.

Comments: I killed the sandbag reference. I originally thought it was stiff for an 11a, but with time I've realized, this rating is warranted.

Comments: Little heavy handed with the unsharp mask don't you think? Though it does produce a surreal effect.

Comments: I am a photoshop nerd, and this looks like you may have gotten a little heavy handed with the saturation or vibrance. No matter, great shot!

Comments: This problem is what you make of it. Stay on the face for the real challenge that direct approach yields, or use the arÍte for an easy go.

Comments: The landing could use some trimming or a good stomp down, as the bushes have grown up around the start.

Comments: See beta pic please? If I identified Blunt correctly, I believe it's actually on the Northwest Arete. Just nit picking, as it seems rather obvious.

Comments: The 5.5 is old school. I think it is fairly graded with appropriate level moves. It does have a peculiar sort of character though. 5.5 is a fairly broad grade too.
