Location: CA : Sierra Eastside : Bishop Area : Owens River Gorge : Inner Gorge : ... : Phasers on Stun (5.12c)

Comments: Low end 12c is a misnomer in my opinion. It felt on par with 12c's at Smith, therefore I'm pretty confident it is in the 12+ category somewhere. Additionally, it is 13- when it's basking in the sun...

Comments: This would probably be difficult without chalk leading the way, but it truly is pretty straight forward and protectable. Aim for the 'gun sight' crack weakness up high just below the belly ledge.

Comments: So I just waltz up to the bottom of this route after doing Running Man, and I'm all like, "yeah, one more pitch". This thing felt bold, exposed and sustained. Not your run of the mill 10d. Screw your head on straight and crimp criptically. Without chalk to lead the way this route is 5.11 most certainly. A 70 will get you down from the top as mentioned, and a trim rack up to 1.5" will suffice, along with some narrow headed Master Cams in the finger size. Worth doing! Once.

Comments: Nice hardware at the top of the photo... is this a good representation of most of the bolting here?

Comments: Ok well... Maybe I wasn't having an "on" day, but the top moves of this were pretty awkward and hard for 11c. An interesting route for sure, but given my experience I can't justify 11c or 4 stars. It is bolted very well, just....awkward.

Comments: Stout 12b, especially at the bulge. Nice route, worth the hike.

Comments: I used different beta, moving to the right of the undercling block... I found this route to be varied, exciting and really awesome.

Comments: I found this route to have good movement on TR; Leading the rig would require a hefty sack of sorts and good gear fiddling.

Comments: 10d for me at 5'8"; it all protects very well.

Comments: An interesting route that was far from a casual romp up a 10a. The "Impending doom" comment was spot on. I'd recommend Chicken Eruptus over this route.

Comments: 7/10 - as of our send this route is not clean. If anyone is above you on this wall expect rockfall. Before we even started we had a very close call from massive rockfall (seriously) that eventually ended up in the river. The first pitch is the worst, followed by the last pitch being almost equally as shitty. Every pitch has some choss, but it is bolted well. The crux pitch has some super fun moves with about 50' of good stone. We walked off by heading east and up over. Not just a "sport climb"..... more >>


Location: OR : Central Oregon : Smith Rock : Mesa Verde Wall : Trezlar (5.10a)

Comments: It's also possible to do this in one pitch- start up M.L.O's 5.7 slab, then traverse right after the second bolt into trezlar's corner. It's a bit run out, but links up nicely. Doubles In BD #1 and #2, the rest takes a standard rack. Solid line.

Comments: Good call - not fair to give it a bad rating when I didn't even do it. I erased my vote, but still feel the same about the start. I should get back on it, in all fairness. Thanks.

Comments: Great route, fun and great positioning.

A little edit to the route info, I would find it difficult to call this an IV... probably closer to a II or III. Its similar in nature to the Kain route, but less commitment and much easier technical climbing.

Comments: No joke, this thing is killer. Somewhat of a long approach from the parking area. You may feel a bit cramped in the cleft, but the moves are great.

Comments: I'm going to be the guy to introduce a "d" at the end of 5.10. It's thin. It's slick. It's a lot of fun. But yea... 5.10c/d.

Comments: this is 5.8 in my book. The slab moves down low are the hard part, and are part of the climb... thus they go into my rating of the route.

Comments: While there is some loose rock at the bottom of the pitch, the rest is of good quality with interesting movement. While I respect the above comment about the route, I found it to be pleasant and not a bad lead at all. Despite one or two loose holds down low and a mandatory mono, it's a climb worth trying if you're bored with Heinous.

Comments: Maybe I missed something, but this was horrible off the deck. An awkward first clip leads to nothing... I ended up backing off the route after the first bolt. My partner couldn't get any further either, and we both onsight 12ish. I completely respect those that say that this is a great route, and I might have missed something, but I give it zero stars. The 11d around to the right (furthest route up the gully) however was fantastic... best route of the day! I'll take the good with the bad.

Comments: Grade III? The route is very straightforward and I would guess that the only reason the commitment would be III is if there are 16 people waiting at the belay ledge. Really fun route for a mellow few hours. The second pitch takes nuts very well.

Comments: To address the above comment... we did the route yesterday, and from the top of the third pitch, keep going another 25 feet up and slightly to the left. There is a bolted anchor with rap rings. You can rap from here and in 4 raps you'll be on the ground about 100 yards to the left of the start of White Satin. At the bottom of the second rappel, you do have to traverse climbers left about 50 feet to reach the next anchor with rap rings on the big ledge. This was a great route. The 3rd pitch i... more >>

Comments: Amazing route, great location, and don't forget that once you get to the top of the cliff you can hike (5-10 minutes) to the very top of the cliff and get a great panorama of the area. The decent wasn't all that bad; but I was very glad when it was over. Beautiful Alpine route that shouldn't be missed.
