Comments: Love the discussion. No US grading system works great for grading short cracks. The best you can say, I think, is like Travis Eiseman is quoted as saying in the guide, "that would be like the crux on a 5.X route". Even that doesn't work very well, bc the grade of a trad pitch has a lot to do with pump and sometimes the additional pump of placing gear, depending on the local mindset.

For Crack of Doom, a boulderer with little crack experience could make this a v6. And a crack climber with littl... more >>

Comments: Damn. Well, yeah. I couldn't agree more. Awful downclimb really detracts.

Comments: Is there a reason, like access concerns, that no one has posted Pep Boys or the Apartment Boulders?

Comments: Ive done this thing 5 or 6 different ways, and can't figure out how to make it easier than v4. Anyone have beta or a video for me for the v3 way?

What a pity Brad didn't have the chance to write the route description.

Comments: I never posted that I got back on this in the spring this year for a couple of goes and did all the moves. I didn't red point, but agree it's probably something like 13-/13.
Pretty good stuff for Sand Wing.

Comments: Broken hold! It is the crux crimp that came off, leaving a smaller sharp little fella. Now it's kind of goofy, I think. I can't decide if I strongly dislike it, or if I think it's actually kind of fun. Not super aesthetic, but I did enjoy it. You still get that cool body positioning action at the beginning.

Comments: Yeah, I think it's still "The Rail" even if you use holds to the side. It's never felt like a clear line to me. I have done it a handful of ways, and just think to myself that it's 'probably "The Rail" as long as it feels roughly v3, and I use the big rail hold at some point while I'm climbing'. The finish up the arete is the fun part anyway.

Comments: Thanks Andrew! Hm. Id never seen anyone climb it, or a video or anything. So I started lower than the original. I think the first couple of moves did add a touch of difficulty. Great FA.

Comments: Right. No camping in the parking lot. Just look for the designated camping area once on top of the hill. It's huge and not a bad place. Sunny.
Get a pass (phone or online, and it's a decent price), bury your human waste (helpful to have a trowel), pick up your garbage (and that of others), and try to keep the night time screaming to a minimum.

Comments: Any comments on how this climbs now vs how it climbed before the starting hold breakages? The first move felt harder than the "crux" move above, and kind of thrutchy today. Maybe I'm missing something?
