Comments: The bolt protecting the crux has been replaced. Gear wise, we got by with bringing one old #4 camalot, rather than a 4 and 5. On the last pitch watch out for loose rock from people topping out epinephrine. My partner almost got clocked by a big one.

Comments: RAP BETA: You CAN NOT rap Blowhard (route to left) with a 70 meter rope (we tried). To rappel from the top of the Polish Tower traverse east (up canyon) for about 200 feet to some small pine shrubs (some live, some dead). Slightly down and left from these shrubs you will find a fixed nut anchor. From there, all raps trend rappeler's left and are slung blocks, and piton anchors. Can be done with a 60 meter rope. Watch for stuck ropes and expect every pull to bring down loose rock.

Comments: There are none of the fixed anchors that are mentioned in Cameron Burn's book. We did the route as 1 200 foot long pitch. Beware of the giant flake in the upper part of the climb. Chimneying against it would be a bad idea, especially if you pitch it out and your belayer is in the chimney with you. Rap anchors are on the route Merry Maker (~100 feet right of Without a Net) and are beefed up bolts and chains with ASCA stamps. Thanks for the new anchors.
