Comments: Replaced the two carabiners on the chains yesterday, they were starting to get some nice gouges. If those were you biners and you'd like them back, feel free to contact me.

Comments: I was another who got on this route after being assured it was 10a. Spoiler alert: it's not. I had plenty of time to piece this revelation together on my long way down from a fall near the top. While the bolts are good and protect the meat of the hard climbing, I definitely would not recommend treating this like a sport route. There are a couple committing, non-trivial moves before the cracks disappear, and the three central bolts arrive, that you definitely would not want to fall from if you ha... more >>

Comments: Likely easier for folks with bigger hands; I got a reasonable lock at the crux which made the moves easier than for those who have to hold a gaston. Either way, the business is so short, I'm not sure it earns the 12-.

Comments: For what it's worth, I also felt that this was stiff for 10a even by Vedauwoo standards. For all my struggling, however, I managed to send first try, so I don't think it's outrageously sandbagged. In regards to the off-width start, the crack in the recess starts a bit wide, but you can stem and chimney your way through a series of good stances which make bringing really wide gear unnecessary. Leave the #6 on the ground. +1 for Slim's comment about somewhat wonky gear. Good placements can b... more >>

Comments: Finally got around to climbing this on July 5, 2013 - what an incredible route! After being peppered by gear beta questions from other climbers, I thought I'd chip in my two cents here. WARNING: BETA.... Having lead both pitches, I thought the technical crux was definitely the fourth pitch, but the chimney was where I really got worked. I was expecting a wide-ish crack that I could climb more-or-less straight in if needed, but this was not the case. A few fist jams are available on the left for ... more >>

Comments: After reading the comments on for this climb, I felt compelled to throw in my lot with some of the more recent comments about the routes condition. There is a little bit of loose rock on this route but not too much. The bigger problem is rock that is slightly fractured or otherwise less than stable. Most of those blocks feel secure at least for now, but it is best to tread lightly through the opening series. It's easy to imagine the overwhelming quantity of loose rock that must have existed on t... more >>

Comments: Short but fun. Moderate face climbing to a short boulder problem. Great route for beginning 5.11 leaders.
