Comments: I'm not sure where people are getting that this is sandbagged unless they went off-route. After you make the awkward step-over (just past a pin), it's 5.8 face climbing to a crack all the way up. I did get confused for a minute and think that this route stepped back left into the crack above the step-over and the Reid topo makes it look like you might. I tried these moves and they were harder, at least 5.9, but I quickly realized that this was wrong. The Super topo draws it a bit more accurately... more >>

Comments: Spring still running as of 9/5/12 despite the dry summer. We didn't think it would be and carried 50 lbs of water up the slabs, which was brutal and hot. Had the route to ourselves. Simply an amazing and humbling experience that reminds me that I need to be in better shape!

Comments: Up and left from the top there is a trail that puts you in the gulley between the N face and Hidden Wall. I have not been on it in a year, but there was a real trail at that time.

Comments: "Crux" traverse is hardest move but is over very quickly. The initial power lieback up the crack above is kind of cruxy too. I cleaned P2 and can't imagine how it would go completely clean unless there was some fixed heads just below the bolt(which there were not). It is a very thin seam before the bolt that wouldn't take cam hooks. He ended up leapfrogging the two tomahawks that we had. to get to the bolt and the one fixed head above the bolt. I'd love to see how folks get through this section ... more >>

Comments: I think 5.8 maybe 5.8+ is right on for this climb. It does not, however, really have a crux and never really lets up. Unlike many other Stone Mtn routes, it continues at the same difficulty whether by a bolt or far run-out, making it feel harder. From the last bolt to the anchors fells pretty far.

Comments: Hey John,
I was going off of this map from the Los Alamos Mountaineers site (it is the 2nd PDF topo map on the linked website) for the decent. This map called the peak right behind the Black velvet wall "Whiskey Peak". Are you saying that this map is mislabeled and "Whiskey Peak" should be the true summit of "Black Velvet Peak"? Anyway, sorry if that was inaccurate, but even if the names are not correct, this map was basically what we did.
Thanks
Chris

Comments: Climbed on 3/23/10. I'm not going to lie...the chimney pitches were pretty rough for me. I guess I have very little experience with that type of climbing. They were ok when wide enough, but when they narrowed up or I felt the need to move in for gear, it became physical. I was very glad to have an old style #4 Camalot and probably would have liked two. I'm guessing that if you are confident, you can stay out in the wider parts and run it out a little more, but keep the climbing easier.The ... more >>

Comments: Climbed Inti to Resolution arete on 3/27/2010. It was a pretty cold start and then in the sun for most of the climb. We still used down jackets for belays as it was cold and windy. Inti itself is fantastic. We combined the first two pitches and this was by far the crux. I thought those 10c moves were pretty hard. The 10c pitch up high was easy(er). We also combined the last four pitches of Inti into 2, to make one long 5.9 pitch and the 5.9 combined with the 10c pitch. I'm glad we continued on R... more >>
