Comments: Standard fist jams work just fine for the start. The top can be a little run out but just trust your ability and you'll reach the anchors.

Comments: Great route and I don't think it sees much action for some reason a my belayer stated that debris was coming down during the climb.

The start demands your attention and focus. Better to stay low when moving right after your first piece to gain the next crack.

I only brought 1 #4 BD and wasted a lot of enery placing nuts in the crack. Bring 2 and leave the #5 down below and you'll be dandy. Awesome jug hold for pulling the roof can be found on the left just above your head as ... more >>

Comments: Amazing climb even though I ran into some major rope drag. I would suggest extending all runners prior to moving right on the flake. I led it with 1 #4 but 2 would be perfect.

Comments: Great route. Bottom portion is the crux. A blue Alien, green aliens and a yellow Alien should do it. Hand crack section is grea,t and if I were to rack up again, I would take a 3rd #2 and #3 BD cam. Does not require any nuts and you can leave the #0.5, 0.75 and 1 BD doubles behind.

Comments: Awesome route! Got me excited about climbing trad again in BC. I though some moves on P1 were just as exciting as the P3 crux.

Comments: I think a #5 is the better piece for the roof as I couldn't get a #6 without it being way over cammed. 5.9+ is about right. Fun route with the right gear.

Comments: Definitely one of the best multi-pitch climbs I've ever done. We never did find the 3rd class descent, so we did the 4th which is easy to find. #4 Camalot is not necessary, but if you bring you can find a home on most pitches. Enjoy!

Comments: I agree with Mark's last statement. I found getting to just below the roof to be a bit tricky. With knowing that rope drag would be an issue I chose to set up a belay at that point and then chose to finish going right (easier than it looks). If I get the chance to do it again, I would attempt the roof but definitely challenging for an 8+.

Comments: Did this for the 1st time today. Classic! I thought the traverse right at the start would be tricky but it's pretty easy. Once you gain the crack, it's great climbing. The roof is a little sustained but you can find a great stopper placement just before you start the exit right. Make sure you use long slings here. Climbing after the roof is good but expect to place mainly small nuts. Placed a #3 Camalot at the top before making the move to the bolts. I forgot and it'll make your he... more >>
