Comments: Seems a good deal more involved in the mid level crux ( by comparison to the 10c to the left, She gave him Blue bolts) But never the less, fun climbing down low pre crux, and a very engaging slabby mantle midway. Upper wall is gained with a tricky exposed move onto the block above.

Comments: Feels much easier than 10c- (Not sure where the pg13 comes into play) Located based on Jon F comments as last climb on Blue bolts wall. Seemed 10a to me

Comments: Decent thin face climb to the right of the much better Arete. Both good warm ups for the area. Great new mussys at the top of both climbs

Comments: 11d in the book- Hence the "softness" ? Harder than Raging Raptor or or just Tired-er than Raging Raptor? lol.

Comments: Great line. Liked it a lot. Not as pumpy as the name implies... But the finish will get you!

Climbers beware, some chossy dust, sand and loose rocks await you above the ledge. Not worth trying to find holds above the anchors. Not to beta spray, but a reachy desperate grasp will send choss down on your belay.

Comments: Thought this was definitely harder than Raging Raptor 12a, and a bit harder than Voyeristic 12a. Overall, solid fun line. Very fun and worth the stars. Surprising low crux with invisible feet, clipping the ( i think) 3rd bolt.

Comments: Absolutely amazing!!! Super line! Solid for 11a....sustained and fun. Not really "overhanging" ...more like slightly overhanging sections.

Comments: Love this climb! Visited it 2 years ago and just came back for more as it haunted my climbing dreams! ( wow im lame) Anyway.. The lower part reminds me of Rolling Blackout and Katmandu at Malibu, for the hueco seeker above.. The move from the rail to the upper pocket feels so amazingly powerful if you can stick it static... ( im over 6ft ) and the rest just gets harder after the pump. I found myself wishing the anchors were 12 inches lower... since pulling the mantle ( on lead) is pretty sket... more >>

Comments: This must be a REALLY hard 11d. I say 12a. Been on it so many times without a RP!! Partially the length of the route, but also cause it's so easy to get pumped on the lower half. If Cappucino is 11c, this is 12a. Or Cappucino is an easy 11c, for the area.. take your pick... lol.

Comments: Climbed this recently at the suggestion of Sam, and im so glad I did. ( got the OS!) As this seems largely ignored, it does have a small amount of choss but I thought it was really very fun! ( and would clean up nicely with some attention)

I was attracted by the bizzare formations and definitely "creepy" look ( like Crucified) and to be sure, this is a very different style of climbing than most of the Sawtooth. The prominent underclings, the 6ft sidepull "rail" feature and the elbow deep unde... more >>

Comments: Disclaimer: I didnt climb this. I did start the route and backed off due to seemingly much stiffer grade that 11a. The first few glue infused crimpers on the blank "sand-stoney" dished faced ( and the removable footholds ) didn't inspire enough confidence to gain the first clip. After completing its neighbor climb to the right, and viewing this climb from above, my personal suspicions confirmed, with all the loose rock, I'm glad i didn't attempt it. Seems like this area goes harder than graded h... more >>

Comments: Got out and climbed this today! I had set out to send Iceburg Lettuce with its 4 star rating, but was a bit spooked by the start of the climb, so I moved over to this climb instead. Let me say, I wanted so badly to love this area, but it is really in need of some traffic. The climb itself will be very good, but deserves a much higher grade( currently 10a)for a solid lead, in this condition. I must have removed a few pounds of scree and choss ( bring a helmet for your belayer) This in and of its... more >>

Comments: A little confused on the movements of the first crux on this climb..There's a great 2 handed rail on the lip of the first roof... Directly above this there is nothing. It appears that one must go a few feet to the left and almost off route to get through this section... Thoughts?

Also, the air conditioner sized rock... Didn't see this, but sure saw the refrigerator sized rock about 20 below anchors... The one that has the killer vertical crack on top. Spooky climbing over that.

Comments: Interestingly, this climb was previously rated 11b back when it was bolted in the late 90s. I would agree, some desperate moves at the end, leaves you either going really far right, or through the blank face. There are now a set of lower chains at the top. ( the newer FC book talks about their poor placement)

Good climb tho! Def a good gateway into 11s
