Comments: I like to protect traverse with a .3 or .4 BD cam. Someone did some cleaning at the start its still dirty but it was worse a year ago. I did so much digging on the top and bottom before I placed the bolts. The lay back section was as is. Fun climb totally worth doing.

Comments: I have , and I think being at the top of p1 would be safer then being on the ground and I've seen it done that way too.

Comments: Yes the way I set it up is , when you thread the bolt also use the fallen tree . It should have another bolt but I didn't have one and the tree is perfect but not obvious because you are standing on it. originally I only used the tree or double rope rap from p1 law and order's finish.

Comments: I rapelled this route 7/29 with a 70 but had to down climb the first move so it can be done with a 70 carefully.

Comments: You can see in this picture the right variation is clean . The little bushes come back quick here but at least they are a small plant .

Comments: Oh I only added one at the top of the flake . I never got around to doing the rest. I think mike did it .

Mike, where the two bolts are that protect the mantle move to get to the crack , I wanted to move that clip up higher so it protects the move better . And did you replace the carabiniers with links at the anchor ? Moving from the top of the flake left I wanted to add a bolt there . And then reposition the next two bolts .

This one of my favorite climbs . Thanks Jon for the props but I'm ... more >>

Comments: Oh yeah I forgot to go back up and put links on the chains. Thanks Bill for cleaning those routes.

That's a great spot. We camped up at the lounge when Eric Brent and me put up the routes. Nice hangout .

Comments: I found a Evolve shoe at the base of centerfold. Did anyone drop one off the wall ? Or is this one of Daryl's shoes ? I found it when I was hiking to the top of Duck wall at the point were you pass Centerfold.

Comments: Josh is right where Anarchy and Chaos starts . Climb left from this spot to the thin corner . It is really dirty right now but would clean up very easy on a dry day . I wanted to clean that day but didn't have a brush .

Comments: No sweat Drew I enjoy fixing up anchors when I can .

You know Clay would be an ultimate link up with p3 and 4 of the zipper . A real testpiece for someone looking to on sight five eleven at Index .

Comments: I did this route in 1999 - 00 can't remember which but I remember thinking the same on the two pitches after psychopath pitch . Sounds like this climb is in need of some TLC.

Comments: It climbs to the very thin tree three bolts belay old 1/4"er's a small ball nut cam can back up belay. Or one can make a Bomber belay in the face crack to belay leader aiding the scary A3. Fixed copper heads to hook moves. Thats the way I did it when I belayed Jason Kohler in 98 roughly.

Comments: I cleaned some old webbing off the p1 anchor and added a nice new shiny bolt now there are three 3/8 bolts. P2 looks really cool.
