Comments: My partner pulled 2 nuts and decked on to me falling from the low crux of this climb. Place those nuts well, and extend them so they aren't getting levered out if you should fall past em.

Comments: So so sick. I found the hardest individual moves closest to the deck, the traverse didn't feel bad.

With a 70m, link the pitches like Barber did on the FA! Or at least belay your second up and give pitch 2 a go...it adds another 30-40 ft of fun climbing at 5.10. In its current state it is rough, rugged and raw with a hard to read crux off the belay, much lichen/moss and just a touch of choss to keep things interesting.

You can rap off the top with a 70 to the ground, probably could lower off ... more >>

Comments: this climb is an amazing, mystical, buttery, hand journey, with great pro in a variety of sizes. I might have placed a single #3, you don't need 3 (or even 2, or even 1...) or them.

Comments: led this the morning after rain. The bottom 10 feet of the climb were soaking wet but easily aided on nuts/c3s. There might be a cam placement above the last bolt but I'd already placed the one I wanted to use. So the top was a little spicy, especially when I grabbed a huge rotten log to top out on and almost pulled it down. Great climb, fun and technical stemming.

Comments: this climb would fit right in at Vedauwoo (where it would get a 5.8... ;) ). Might be worth taping up for this one if you are questioning your jamming skills. Great jams are all there, and nothing too flaring even, but the rock is pretty rough compared to other 11worth hand cracks.

Gear beta: Can be done with a standard rack of nuts and cams to #3 (save your #2 for just after the crux to prevent decking out on the ledge below it, and a #1 for the finishing hand crac... more >>

Comments: Great climb, good gear the whole way (I took the ride off the slopers at the top on a solid bd .4 in a horizontal after getting tunnel vision and pumping out). This was the first 11 I ever led on gear and I am super glad I hopped on it!!

Comments: I didn't climb this...the guidebook I had hyped it up and I looked at it and was actually kind of grossed out and decided to climb raging waters instead. Thankfully there was an older dude there to tell me to 'go for it' since I'd never hopped on a 5.11 trad route before. This might well be a fun route though, diminished by the other awesome climbs right next to it

Comments: Lieback if you dare. My partner, an experienced crack climber and trad leader, popped out of the crux due to the super-polished nature of the left side of the crack. Lots of feet on both faces.

Comments: A fun and scary alternate finish for the final pitch, that will have you asking, what would Fred Beckey do?

From the belay tree above the big corner (p3), climb up left and over a tree to a ledge below a slabby face with several large black chickenheads. Slinging the chicken heads as pro, move up and left to the arete and then back across the face into a wide, rounded groove. Stem across and up, running it out as the chickenheads shrink to the size of grapes (crux). Pull onto a final 20 feet o... more >>

Comments: Didn't carry the #4 up to the sail, but made do with 2 #3s. If 5.7 is your limit you'll probably want one.

Comments: Such an awesome route! Buttery finger locks, and a fun layback section.

Flakes at the top are definitely suspect. You can find slopey face holds left of the looseness and avoid pulling on them, but even if they ripped off it wouldn't be too too bad, the loosest rock is right at the beginning of the runout.

Comments: *cough* sandbag *cough*...

my buddy broke the foot hold off the crux of this route yesterday. Have fun.

PS, I placed a 4 at the start and a 1 under the first roof. With a sling on the 1, drag wasn't a problem.

Comments: I thought this route had beautiful movement and awesome, fun holds on a clean, steep face. Lots of haters out there seem to disagree but I thought it kicked ass! The kind of climb that gym setters everywhere try to emulate. Super safe falls, good clip stances, interesting sequences. True there may be better 5.10 sport routes at the New but it's a world class area and this climb stands out even here.

It is pretty polished though.

Comments: Super fun route, one of the best I've ever done! GEAR BETA SPOILER ALERT: I was very glad to have a #0 c3...it was my first piece after the bolt and without it the start would have felt really scary. Although I guess a small sideways nut could work too.

From the ground it barely even looks like a route. The 'beta:' is just keep going up, it's all there and so good!! I thought this was physically easier than 4 sheets to the wind at Junkyard, but trickier gear and a bit scarier (some small ... more >>
