1st rap station as of July 15, 2012 - we added 2 nuts and a rap ring, replaced webbing, and equalized. The pins and old deformed/ovalized rings are pretty scary.

Comments: Really enjoyed this climb! Has a little bit of an adventurous feel to it and lots of variety. There is some loose rock after the rains - my leader pulled off a softball-sized handhold somewhere around the 4th (?) bolt - glad to be wearing a helmet. We discussed placing gear for the belay, but that first bolt is pretty easy to get to if you are comfortable at the grade.

Comments: Climbed this yesterday and had a great time.

From the comments, we were expecting route finding to be a problem, but it was super easy using the original description (I was glad to have MP on my phone though so we could check it between pitches).

P11 was confusing - I initially tried going right for the 5.6 option, but didn't see any bolts, so ended up downclimbing and going straight up figuring protected 5.10 was preferable to soloing 5.6 for me, so I am not sure where I went wrong there.

Comments: Climbed this on June 15 - the rock quality is very poor, think mud held together with kitty litter in places. Maybe it will clean up? Long runners helped to reduce rope drag - the route wanders a bit. I would skip this one and do the middle line, as it was much better/cleaner rock with funner climbing.

Comments: We found slings on a tree to rap from when we did this route end of May/early June (per the Fixed Pin description). Major bushwhack down the steep gully from there with a lot of loose rock. From a glance at the mapsh it looks like it might be possible to walk off the back side of the next formation over (Ranch Hand)?

Comments: Super fun crag - thanks, Lee, for the tour! You guys have done an amazing job here - small crag, but every line is good quality. False advertising on that approach though... took me way longer than 45 seconds!

Comments: We felt this went much easier than 5.7 - I guess I'd give it 5.4 (my partner insists 5.2) and definitely not at all representative of the grade for the SPlatte. Expecting 5.7, I was underwhelmed with the climbing although the setting is beautiful. Go in expecting 5.3 low angle slab climbing, with some runout, and you won't be disappointed!

I think we noticed 2 missing hangers - 1 on P4 and 1 on P5.

The approach and descent trail are both well-cairned.

Comments: Nice route and definitely worth doing. Still some loose rock in that band and a very hollow sounding flake higher up, so be careful. Thanks for putting these up, Luke (and Mark)!

Comments: Word is the nuts have been stripped off this anchor - so don't expect them if you are heading up.
