Comments: Looks stellar...and maybe he never actually even climbed Alexander's, because as a rock climb...it's wetter than a 28 year old, Connecticut, outdoorsy chick at a Neptune Slide show.

Comments: Missile is the correct spelling for a self powered projectile of the sort I believe the route is sposed to represent.

Will SpencerParkin rate this only 1 star?

Comments: This climb is old school alpine 5.10. A classic Kor route, with decrepit old bolts and pins here and there.

Missing the 5.7 starting dihedral pitch made this climb a bit more interesting. We ended up left of the normal route all the way up to the base of the "death flake" pitch. The climbing mostly 5.8/5.9 or a bit harder. A fun chimney, some mild offwidthing, clean rock...so, no big deal if you miss the obvious corner start like the morons we are.

Comments: Where is "In search of Unicorns", the famous 11 on the Tail?

Ratings (difficulty and star) appear to be wrong for that one, if it's in the correct position.

Comments: Climbed both the corner (lead) and the thin crack on the face (TR). Both could be considered dicey for gear by modern standards. Both lines are super fun.

Comments: Good route for new trad leaders. Plentiful gear, and if you bring large passive stuff, you can sink it everywhere. Fun!

Comments: Recently climbed here, and I'll say this route is a candidate for rebolting. The AMC hangers look mostly OK, but some of the bolts have significant rust.

Since I am ignorant and would hate to damage this perfect route, I'll just post here that it's a candidate for rebolt.

Comments: What would happen here should the leader fall? I love Lefthand and all, but it seems a better belay position could be obtained. What a pill, I know.

Comments: So nice to hear that despite the accident, JL is cracking jokes and healing up. Part of the reason, I'm quite sure, that he is healing and in good spirits is because of the physical presence of his daughter, other friends, and family.

All best to John Long, and his family and friends, and all the climbing community in 2013! Be safe, be considerate, and have fun!

P.S. Another thought that could perhaps use its own thread...is there a systematic way to protect the legends of climbing who have g... more >>

Comments: This is a fine and easy lead, a good intro to fist jamming (or perhaps cupped hands?), with great gear. Good small gear can be found on the right wall for the last 1/3 of the route. Bring at least 1 #4 for sure.

Comments: At the very end of the climb (according to this topo) instead of belaying, do one or two more moves and finish on the actual top of the buttress for a nice view of the area. Easy scramble off.
