Location: CA : High Sierra : The Sawtooth Ridge : Incredible Hulk : The Polish Route (5.10+)

Comments: A few notes:
1) Polish route, P3. From belay climb the wide crack, leave #5 (#4 could also do a bit lower) in it to protect a rather sketchy traverse. You can drag a single #4 with you through the entire offwidth part of the pitch, occasionally placing smaller stuff.
2) You can build an anchor after P3 just left of the second pod with a #1 and some medium-sized nuts to spare all the big gear for the next pitch.
3) Escape from Poland, P2 (Iron Curtain): place a nut in the... more >>

Comments: Beta alert. If you can't do the long reach, it is possible to clip the third bolt and escape left onto the bolted flake around the arete. The flake and the necessary footholds under it seemed solid in their current state. I was on TR but was able to reach all the bolts from stable stances. Unfortunately this variation avoids a very nice sequence from the third bolt to the long reach as well. I think this brings the overall difficulty down to mid-.12.

Comments: The dirt road up Steven's Gulch looked a bit rough for a 2wd (esp bad ~1 mile in). I decided to leave my Sprinter at a parking lot next to the forest service road ~0.5 miles in. A few people turned around higher. I saw a few sedans make it all the way up though.

It was really crowded today (on Sunday). Despite leaving the trailhead at 630am, I passed 5-6 parties on the ridge proper. One was even carrying a rope on their pack.

The most obvious path follows a trail through lots of loose scree, d... more >>

Comments: Approach for Land of the Free/El Sendero Luminoso:
From a large pull-out on the road head down into the riverbed and locate miners road on the other side (as of 12/2014 it had a sign and a gate). Follow the road for 500 steps and take a trail uphill. After 150 steps it splits. Right - to Plutonia caves, left - to LotF/ESL through some loose scree to slabs below a mine.

Comments: It's a good climb for a sunny winter day, when it's typically >70F in potrero (route gets no sun).
It has very interesting, surprisingly sustained and even pumpy long sequences on crimps, edges, shallow pockets, smears and fingercracks throughout all 10 first pitches we managed to climb. It's not your typical cruxy fingernail crimping slab and imo is way better quality than anything in virgin canyon. Line is amazingly clean for front side and holds, even the most suspiciously looki... more >>

Comments: I used 3#0.75, ~7#1, ~5#2, #3(optional) - bd c4 sizes
After cleaning, 80m rope lowered me to a big ledge ~30ft above the base.

Comments: The sandy, pocketed slab below the starting ledge goes at about 5.7R and is rather fun too

Comments: Apologies... Monty, you're right. I thought I was on 'Opportunist' when I did 'No Opportunities missed', and it messed up the order of the rest of them in my head.

Comments: Dropped a line from the top anchor yesterday. Pitch 2 was awesome. The line from the big ramp directly below the intermediate anchor goes at 5.10 with a few nice moves on very crumbly rock. Would be a nice line if a solid bolt was placed there, but I'm not sure if a bolt in that stuff would hold a fall.

Comments: Downclimbed it after 'Taking Care of Business'. The moves felt considerably harder than anything on NE face of 5th Flatiron (5.6), which I've done just before that. So heads up if you don't have rope.

Comments: I expected some tricky route finding and adventurous climbing on this one and was rather underwhelmed. First 2 pitches to the first bolted anchor are 5.4. Then there's a 30-foot pitch to the ridge. The moves were easier than on North face, but the rock wasn't as solid.

There was a couple working on a bolted line that goes straight up from the first belay (that Steve mentioned above). It has just gotten a FA and the red tag is now removed. They said it goes at 5.12d. Looks like an instant classi... more >>
