Comments: I love this pic . it shows the rock to the left really well with nice light. The bulk of the cleaning is just on the start there. steep climbing to a bottomless squeeze looks hard getting into the squeeze.

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.

Comments: That sounds good I think I will remove that anchor. I have a good name for it now "And Say". I'm working on a good P1 for And Say I will be done soon. I will bolt it up just like you said I think that will be the best way to climb it.

Comments: When I climbed this I thought the anchor under the roof was troublesome so I added a anchor at the top of first corner. Now one will belay standing on the shoulder and the follower can pass through straight to the over hanging flakes. Stemming makes the overhang much easier.
