Comments: Another fun variation is to climb the Boving roofs, instead of the slab traverse to bear hug OW. Stiff 10b.

Comments: Don't expect to protect the wide crack unless you bring a green or blue big bro. I have not protected it, and it is kinda scary, not 5" as stated here, more like 8".

Comments: I found that history in the early 90's McLane book, I would guess the gullies would be done first, with the S. gully having some real climbing (done in 1957), don't know about the Ngully (done in Feb. 58, maybe with snow?). I think the Peasants was a attempt by Baldwin in reaching the Split Pillar?

Comments: A great route, deserves more attention. It mostly feels like 10a to me, but sustained undercling laybacks .

Comments: I would not say the first roof move is silly, fun undercling to flake ledge above. that crimpy finish was silly though, and so clean, one marvels at the spotless granite.

Comments: I climbed this on lead knowing of the talk here. I don't know what it was like to lead this dirty, probably scary. The pictures here show a mossy corner. I placed a small cam off the big ledge, was pretty gripped and glad to find the little layback edges, clipped 1st bolt, left finger slot below corner, stemmed up, clipped 2nd bolt, pulling on crack on left face of corner, .75 at end of that, clip 3rd bolt, move onto chicken heads, 4th bolt. Then placed yellow alien above that, leftward moves tr... more >>

Comments: I was talking to someone and we agree that there used to be a route called Black Market with 5 bolts more spread out then usual X38 routes, with anchor below roofs above. About mid way between Side Dish and Jiffy Pop, maybe we climbed it around 2002.

Comments: Did this up to Astro yesterday. We knew the upper pitches are supposed to be better, but we were so discouraged by the first four pitches that we bailed and did the NN Arete. This is coming from someone that doesn't mind a new route with some adventure. This start feels like a unfinished project, still needing a lot of cleaning.Maybe we were just tired and intimidated by the Wide pitches above. Will have to go back, but maybe by Astro ledge.

Comments: 2nd belay anchor missing nut on one bolt, hanger hanging on chain off one bolt. I was not carrying those kinds of nuts to fix it. We backed up first rap with cam, then I rapped off one bolt- not a big deal really.

Nice route, was wet and dirty, but good climbing. I would say it is 10a, except for the two bolt protected moves, first one 10b/c face, 2nd on 2nd pitch 10d(this move can be easily aided). 3rd pitch is 10a.

Comments: In 2009 we did a 2nd pitch that follows finger cracks up slab to the right of Tool Time. Follows a RFC dihedral that is really good, however dirty and some loose rocks, maybe 5.8. Also uses the Tool Time anchor.

Comments: It would be bold to climb this with no gear. The lower run-out is pretty easy but takes good medium gear,There is a hard move between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. the upper crux feels like 10b and really run-out without a #4 after the 5th bolt.

Comments: I promise I am not being snarky by saying that this is a nice route. I still consider it 5.9. and I am generally a wimp with run-outs, seemed ok.

Comments: I don't think anyone mentions it here, but that 1st pitch variation that is all bolted on the arete to the left is 10c called 2 Rats and a Titmouse, and has 2 spots with widely spaced bolts that also happen to be the thin crux moves. I happen to like the crack all the way to the belay- it is very nice IMO.

Comments: This is an excellent route, one of my favorite 5.8 routes in Leavenworth. As of 2009 there are two new routes either side of this.

Comments: All good quality. Good for when it is rainy up canyon, often dry around here up to Careno, same for early season snow, drys out first here.
Beware of the 3 leaf poison ivy at base of climbs.
