Comments: C2? Blahahahah...

Our party must have been complete chicken shits too!

No doubt in my mind that's C3 but I suck at climbing.

Comments: This is a two star route for good views and adventure. The actual 5.8 climbing isn't too bad. Everything else, not so much.

Comments: About 15-20 feet up pitch 3 is a loose dinner plate sized rock. It should be removed. There was a party behind us so we didn't want to mess with it. Also, our rope got stuck on that same rock while pulling our ropes on our descent. What a f*#K fest.

For the descent, I would recommend doing a single rope rappel from the summit to the top of pitch 3 and then a double 60M rope rappel to the intermediate anchor on pitch 2 and then another double 60M rope rappel to the ground.

I would... more >>

Comments: There indeed is a new bolt at the end of the traverse on pitch 7. That's why pitch 4 is now the "Spicy Meatball."

Also, that rappel down pitch 7 to the top of pitch 6, it blows. Didn't someone mention someone was going to epic on it? Well, that chap, was me. We wanted to go down Road Kill but was worried about the condition of the anchors. Descending this route sucks!

Comments: The bolted anchor is on a questionable block (the geologist I climbed with agreed). There is a hairline stress fracture near the base. Personally, I would use a gear anchor over those bolts.

The "Good" gear placements near the top are on some precarious blocks. I sure wouldn't want to take a whipper and have the forces of the cams loosen those blocks. I only say that because I have had a similar failure of the rock while at Morrison.

Comments: There is a finger pocket on the lower third with a wasp nest in it.

The bolted anchor is on a questionable block (the geologist I climbed with agreed). There is a hairline stress fracture near the base. Personally, I would use a gear anchor over those bolts.

Moreover, I think this route would be best protected by tri-cams.

Comments: I climbed this route yesterday and I have a few notes, additions to beta, and thoughts. First, I thought the climbing was pretty decent despite the super long approach but far from a 4 star classic. Plenty of sustained moderate climbing with the last 5.8 hand crack being really good. If only that hand crack was longer. Minus the approach, I thought it was a 3 star climb. It also looks like we're not the only one that had route finding problems.

We did it in 8 pitches, since we did the dir... more >>

Comments: According to the guide, it shows the route heading right from the wider crack and back in the main crack at the tree. Climbing directly in the wide crack felt a bit stiff for 5.7. Dirty holds with lichen feet seemed to up the ante.

Comments: This would be a 3 star route if it wasn't for the crappy finish traverse to the left.

Comments: There is not a 2 bolt anchor but a single bolt anchor with a chockstone and webbing. Good route.

Comments: With the right gear, this route can be kept to C2. Tri-cams and off set nuts were mandatory, I thought. I also found offset cams helpful but not mandatory.
The hardest part I thought was the last 10-15 feet to the intermediate pitch 3 anchors. I ran out of Tri-cams and was a bit sketched. With some tri-cams (brown or blue) that section would have been a non event.
The start of pitch 4 was a little tricky but not too bad. As for the roof, I just used tri-cams (pink and blue) to the pins ... more >>

Comments: The one bolt that can be used on the second pitch friction slab is sketchy. The pin above it isn't any better (I missed it on lead). If you were to take a fall, that bolt wouldn't hold and you would certainly deck on the ledge below.

Great climbing. Just needs to be cleaned up a bit.

Comments: There is a missing hanger on the 5th-6th bolt (I don't remember which one at the moment). Be prepared for a long mid section run-out.

Without that hanger on the bolt, the climb is now PG-13.

Comments: It has been brought to my attention, and I would like to clarify, I did NOT place the two bolts located on top of the 20 foot 5.3 slab. I am not sure when those were placed or who placed them.

As for the placement of those two bolts, I am not entirely sure why they were placed considering that the slab can be down-climbed or rappelled via a bush.

Comments: This route doesn't warrant a bomb. Pro was decent and rock was good except for some pebbles at the top. The route will be a decent route with some traffic.

Comments: There is a wasp nest between the 3nd and 4rd bolt as of 05/2012. It is within 5 inches of a mandatory hand hold. They didn't bother us, but then again the nest was small. It made the lead a bit spicier for me since I am scared sh(*less of wasps/bees.

Comments: The rock in this route is pretty Janky. My partner and I went up two pitches and bailed due to the crappy rock. Just at the start of the second pitch he pulled down a 30 lb boulder that appeared to be solid. Furthermore, after looking at the pro that we had, the rock was loose around our pro!!! While walking off the route, we also inspected the route off of Ellingwood, and it didn't look good. After reading Roaches book for ascending that ridge on Ellingwood (the recommended descent route) ... more >>
