Comments: Thanks! Hopefully we can get back up there in the next week or two and give it a proper finish.

Comments: Sorry for any unintentional sandbagging! We worked the route to death and probably lost sight of how difficult it would be to onsight. As a concensus is reached, we'll be sure to update the individual pitch ratings.

Thanks to Josh, Ben, and Doug for the prior exploration and work on this part of the wall!

As an aside, I spent a considerable amount of time trying to work the C0 traverse. With a little ~help~ from the rope, I was able to work every individual move. When I tried to get it cle... more >>

Comments: Yep, I go right just about where this picture was taken. I saw Glenn move
right lower and nearer to the bolt, but I've always stayed a little left and swung around the arete on great jugs. Phenomenal climbing either way!

Comments: Really cool route with a series of high steps, mantels, and long reaches to good stances. If you are anywhere near kitty litter while passing the second bolt, you are way too far right! An improbable hold and sequence left of the second bolt will reward you with good rock and great moves.

Comments: A couple of notes:
1) The route, as described above, is a bit different than what is listed in the Hubbel guide (take a look at the photo with the red line to see where Hubbel shows the route going). I suspect the Hubbel variation bumps up the grade when you traverse left after the finger crack, rather than going straight up the wide flake above.
2) Don't cheat yourself of some of the best climbing on the route by traversing far right on the third pitch. Continuing up the dihedral may be harder... more >>

Comments: Hi Chris, I'm not sure which route you climbed, but Sicilian Style and Leverage are two different routes. Sicilian Style starts about 10 feet to the left in a series of dihedrals before tackling a crack and rounded black face just before the anchors. Leverage is a new route, not in the latest D'Antonio guide, and starts immediately behind a large black flake. Hope that clears things up.

Comments: This route has received some much-needed attention. Last time I was on it, it was basically a vertical sandbox. The holds have been brushed, loose blocks removed at the crux, strange tat removed near the dihedral and the sun-bleached webbing removed from the first set of anchors (replaced with quicklinks and chains). This section should be good to go and climbs very well. There is an extension above the first set of anchors that also looks very fun and challenging, but it is guarded by a ver... more >>

Comments: This was by far the best route I got on during a single day exploration of the area. It had a fluidity of movement that some of the other thuggy jug hauls in the canyon lacked.

Comments: Not sure if I did the route correctly but it seemed somewhat contrived the whole way. The second bolt was extremely difficult to clip with ledgefall potential. The next 3 or 4 bolts consisted of the following movement: climb up on obvious holds, move WAY right to clip, move back left, climb up again and repeat. Following the bolt line would have included overhanging terrain on marginal holds and little feet, hard to imagine it going at low 5.10. At about the 3/4 mark, the bolt line and the h... more >>

Comments: We found it made sense to break up the pitch descriptions the same way the rappels are set up (almost any two can be linked):
1) 5.7 100ft
2) 5.8 80ft
3) 5.9 80ft
4) 5.10a 80ft
5) 5.9 80ft

Portions of the first pitch and the entire second pitch were mediocre at best, but once you start following the dike, the climbing was very entertaining. Watch out for the 1/4" relic that protects a funky move on one of the last two pitches! The Beta photo showing the rocks above the top anchors was dead-on... more >>

Comments: Jeff is right about the first portion of the dirt road...probably could be done in a sedan if you know how navigate burms. The espinoza portion however was in really bad shape when we were there a couple of weeks ago. We were in a "sport" suv and ended up doing a 20 point turn to reverse our course after only a couple hundred yards down the road. Instead we opted to continue onto the higher parking area, hike to the top of the crag and rap in. The hike was 45 minutes, well-worn and fairly m... more >>

Comments: This route is amazing in its improbability of being climbed at only 5.10! 4 star movement reduced to 3 stars by some lower quality rock in the middle of the climb and blocks above. Anchors 5 feet lower would mitigate some of the fear induced by large blocks at the top of the route.

Comments: I couldn't agree more. This route is pumpy and sustained, a great addition to the area!

Comments: This route is deceptively steep, much steeper than it looks from the ground. If your stamina is up for it, don't miss out on this crazy swath of patina. The suggestion for supplemental gear up and to the left of the anchors is spot on for anyone who may want to TR this route.

Comments: With Heavy Weather, Staying Power, and Thunder Tactics all in a row, this section of the Bank is 11c heaven! I find it really hard to beat the Bank for density of quality routes in the 11 and 12 range.

Comments: If anyone has the time or hardware (including myself), it would be nice to add either another set of quicklinks or, even better, a set of chains with an odd number of links. Although the current set of quicklinks is better than nothing, single quicklinks on anchors will twist the heck out of your rope.

Comments: Recently tried to do the second pitch of this route....my partner climbed up through the nice corner, into the blocky section, and past a short offwidth/slot. He continued on for another 10 feet (for a total of around 70) and was left with a view of 30 more feet of offwidth but no visible anchors in sight. Lacking in gear and any indication that higher anchors existed, he ended down-climbing until he reached a single piece of old tat, slung around one of the blocks wedged in the corner. Altho... more >>

Comments: A fantastic addition to Shelf (and cleaning up quite nicely)! Observe how far the rope hangs out from the wall after being lowered and you will realize why it feels so pumpy.
