Comments: As a not-5.12 climber, I can say that this thing hurts. Lots of potential to kick your belayer in the face, as it is hard from the moment you leave the ground.

Comments: Yep. If you came here to do ancient art... don't do this. Else, pretty sexy.

Comments: Can we please stop saying "well bolted?" The correct term is "over bolted."

Comments: The book gives this route 5.8 C2+. I didn't lead the first pitch but it seemed, to me, to be pretty damn contrived for C1.

Edit per Jeremy: Sand-Bagged.

Comments: This thing is really good. It's no 5.10 though, and can be done with little or no O/W technique. Solid rock for the business up top, the bottom is a fisher though.

Comments: I don't know about extra greens. I was thinking I could have used extra grays (0.4?). Pretty fun route. Not terribly dirty except for the first pitch.

Comments: I don't know what 11a offwidth feels like, but I know what 10+ offwidth feels like and this was hard. I am of normal size.

Comments: All,

I'm wondering what the variation is called? One can either head up the ramp and do the (easier) hand crack, or continue straight up into the offwidth. Anyone know the story?

Comments: No love for this thing, huh? I thought it was a blast. Don't wear a helmet. Trail gear. Get stuck. Get unstuck. Try again. Get stuck again. Go around. Get back in. Pretty awesome #6 placement. The poop and risk of decapitation are worth the misery (if you're into that).

Comments: I've done both Foxtrot and Parallels (only on lead and neither clean). I thought that Parallels was harder than Foxtrot, but that's just like... you know... my opinion, man.

Comments: I just wanted to add that to rap this route with a single sixty would be stupid and inconsiderate of the parties below you.

Comments: This is not a gym climb. Be gentile with the soft desert rocks and conglomerates. I watched a 12-year-old-75-pounder scrape what must have been a pound of rock off of this thing (top rope). If you are unfamiliar with the soft nature of the soft rock in this area, maybe wait a few years for this one. Just one man's opinion.

Comments: This can be done in two pitches with a seventy. We did so with a sixty, requiring my second to climb a few feet to get me to the chains. Several Death blocks. This route is moderate but should be taken seriously as the rock is never that good. 5.9 R. Bring Chord. Standard Desert Rack.

Comments: This was hard. #5 was important. Two or three #4s. A few smaller pieces.
