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: Just in case people get the idea it is safe to use a 60m rope on the 2nd of these routes (Kansas Honey) - it has its own anchor now (maybe it shared an anchor with Waiting on the Staircase when this description was originally posted) which is quite a bit higher than the 5.6 anchor.

It definitely requires a 70m - we just made it on stretch with our 70m. The information posted under the Kansas Honey description on this page is correct.

Comments: The old angle hangers were replaced with modern hardware (bolts were good, 1 needed replacement) as part of the 2014 Penitente project weekend. Shared anchor with Buffalo Chips was also replaced.

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.
