Comments: I led this route years ago and at the time it was near my limit; that's what made it so great!! A memorable and very classic route. Get on it!

Comments: This was the first route I jumped on on my first trip to Suicide. I didn't know anything about it or the scary rep it had. I chose it because of the casual rating of 5.8. I can say that it was quite an eye-opener for me. I can still remember 25 years later moving out toward what I think was the third bolt with my heart just pounding and my nerves fraying. I made it to the top though with no falls and a great story. Good Times!

Comments: Russ, it may have been done in the 70's, but it may not have been done since then,given the amount of loose rock in it. Either way, give me the info. and I'll edit accordingly. Thanks, Don

Comments: I've seen this route rated 5.9 elsewhere. It's hard to really rate this route I think. I focused so much on not falling that I really didn't think much about the rating. However, I can't in good conscience call it anything other than 5.7. Climb it yourself and find out. It does have a big WOW rating!!

Comments: I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the very large detached flake midway up. I tried to avoid it, but it is in the middle of everything and must be trusted. I found that it greatly detracted from the quality of this otherwise stellar climb. BTW: I began with the chimney start on the left and really enjoyed it.

Comments: I tried to lead this route, but found it too difficult to stop and place gear on the go. The right wall offers very little for the feet and the liebacking is fairly sustained. On toprope the climbing is merely pleasantly pumper.

Comments: I led this years ago without any big pro. If you're confident in your chimney technique then you'll no doubt enjoy this climb. If not.......

Comments: Arranging protection for the initial section is a little thought provoking.

Comments: I led this on Monday and didn't consider it "contrived" at all. I wasn't able to use the other wall until well after the majority of the crack was climbed. I'm 5'9" and perhaps a taller climber could reach it much earlier. I thought this was pretty stout for the grade. I pushed a #6 camalot ahead of me to protect the initial 25 feet or so.

Comments: Not sure if this is the correct crack, but I am referring to the crack just to the left of Crack-a-no-go. This is a wide stout corner crack that takes wide gear. I used a 4,4.5,5 camalot. and another wide piece for the top section. The pockets on the left wall were a great help.

Comments: A short stout crack. A bit trickier to lead than it looks from the base. I don't know if I agree with the previous poster with regards to this crack vs. Primer, but I guess that's the beauty of climbing.

Comments: climbed this a few years ago. The crux of the climb is getting to it. Great location though and a great adventure for those willing to tread off the beaten path. From the top you will be rewarded with outstanding views.

Comments: Okay, I just led some 10c at Donner and came here and TR'd this. Very sketch for the grade. I kept thinking that I'd fall at any time. Very thin and for my money harder than 10c.

Comments: I would agree with Josh. I just put my foot on the knob and semi-dyno'd up to put my right hand on the right corner. I was surprised when I didn't fall off. Thin stuff that.

Comments: I led it yesterday and laybacked the crux. Pretty thin for a layback no doubt. Good route though and a good fun per vertical foot factor.

Comments: A must do. A good lead or easily toproped. One short crux section but it's all there for the patient climber.

Comments: I led this in July of 09' and found it totally memorable. It is awkward and scary. I did use my knees at one point as seems to be the tradition. A unique route, but you better be solid on run out 5.7.

Comments: I liked this climb as it has a good variation of moves. I agree that the crux is getting into the crack from the ledges.

Comments: I almost feel like I did a different route than the others here. I found the climbing to be mid-ten for sure. Perhaps this is a reflection of being on the couch all winter, or the fact that I rarely do any slab routes. Get on it and let us know what YOU think.


Location: CA : Tahoe Vicinity : Donner Pass : Green Phantom Rock : Undercling Thing (5.9+)
By: DJ Reyes When: May 13, 2013

Comments: Definitely fun though I'd have loved to have the undercling portion go on for a couple dozen more feet! This route is hard to rate for me. Seemed much easier to me than Fine Line, but my partner disagreed. I'd say just get on it and judge for yourself.

Comments: The rating seemed fair at least to me as a leader. Don't forget that in order to protect this route you'll need to plug up some potential holds. No doubt it'll seem much easier on TR.

Comments: I soled this route and found the crux to be the downclimb off of the formation.

Comments: Nice little lead with protection a little difficult to arrange down low, but it's all there for the patient leader. I exited through the wide crack above which seemed an exciting way to finish the route.
