Comments: Comments on pitches 7-10: as per the comments here we moved up off of the left side of 12 o' clock ledge and started the right facing corner. It was a 5.6ish pitch to the base of the chimney, on the right side of Tibetan tower. The next pitch (8)was the chimney itself. The start and chimney was ok but the rock at the top of the chimney was terrible, with lots of loose dangerous flake to get up to the tree (there are bolts climbers left on top of the tower). I would not recommend finishing the c... more >>

Comments: Truly a classic route. However, there are some loose blocks and questionable flakes. Especially the flake looming at the start of the 4th pitch. Very hard to avoid standing on it, it's huge, it moves, and is right over your belayer...be careful!

Comments: I don't think the rap from the top of the route would go with a 70m. Ours came up short. Luckily we had a second rope. A #4 is useful to protect the offwidth on the second pitch.

Comments: I like the blur. It gives it a depth that emphasizes how big the boulder really is compared to the climber.

Comments: Couple of notes:
The belay at end of P3 only has one bolt, but there is a gear placement right next to it.
There is a newish looking pin in the crux of P4. It is nice to have since the gear below is just ok and you make a move to get up to the good placements in the dihedral.
I didn't see the bolts at the top of P4 but there was a great horizontal crack at the top of the dihedral.

This a fantastic route and I think the crux is still the start of West crack. There isn't really anything harder... more >>

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!
