Comments: Wow, this climb packs a punch. There is enough pro to keep you from taking a bad fall, but it's definitely not a giveaway. The upper half of the climb is significantly easier on unusual leaning features. Super fun route.

Comments: This climb is amazing. Pitches 1 and 2 have some of the coolest climbing I have done in the Stronghold. Thanks, John, for posting it up!!

Modern climbing gear protects this climb well enough that the R rating is probably not warranted, however, all but one of the pitches have some tricky pro and demanding climbing.

We felt that stoppers, singles to .75 camalot, doubles of #1-#3, and one #4 camalot would work well for protecting this climb. All pitches are under 100'.

Comments: Excellent climbing on bullet hard rock. A very nice warmup for the other routes in the area. Pumpy as hell for the grade.

Comments: Terrific exposure on a gorgeous feature. Kudos to Arjun for a strong ground up FA on this route. Singles to .75 Camalot are fine to protect this route. With the added bolts the climb protects well. I used a blue alien to protect the final moves after the ledge.

Comments: (Edit). Thanks John. FWIW I would prefer that runout routes are not retrobolted.

Comments: (edit)

John I agree that bolts should not be added to established lines. They should be left as test-pieces for people looking forward to the challenge. There are plenty of safe routes to choose from in the Stronghold.

For what it's worth Clay and Andy are badass and can sack up with the best of them.

Comments: Repeated one of the above-listed variations to this direct start today; we started by heading straight up past two bolts and then traversing to the left. Done this way the route has a couple of moves in the 10 to 10+ range. It is difficult to protect the second on the traverse unless you have a couple of tricks in your bag.

Two old bolts still need to be pulled and filled. Please try to re-use old holes when replacing bolts; these 1/4" buttonheads could have easily been... more >>

Comments: Thanks Clay for the great belay and for leading pitches 1&3 so I could get psyched for pitch 4! You rock man.

Thanks to Dave Merin who replaced the hardware on pitches 1&3.
