Comments: YOU MAY BE CONFUSING THIS WITH HIDDEN OPULENT 10/A/B.
CANADIAN IS ON TOMATO WALL ALMOST DIRECTLY ABOVE THIS.

Comments: left of the rope is a really good 10c variation that I recently cleaned, summer 2014.

Comments: starts on far right (east) side of buttress. Run- out but pretty easy to first rusty 3/8" bolt. Some committing arete and face moves to difficult mossy cracks, 10b or very technical 10a. Another bolt ( 1/4" button head) mossy slab top out. Would be good if cleaned.

Comments: all the routes left of Fairy Ring are not in the guide books. Next route directly left of Fairy Ring is a great finger crack, about 10a. left of that with the same start but trending left into a wide crack is a 5.9. Down and left is a great 10b/c steep left facing corner.

Comments: crux parts were rattly fingers for me, 3 each of .5- .75 camalots would be nice. I had 2 of each and leapfrogged them. other stuff works- #1,2 and 3, but I don't think I used anything smaller then the .5 except for a nut.

Comments: This is a really good climb, ignored by most for the dirty start?

Comments: Surprising good even with the dirty first pitch. I may need to clean a direct start to this.

Comments: What they don't tell you is that unless you are a 5.11+ climber for ROTC or Supercrack, or happy to climb scruffy 5.10+ then this a long steep hike for a few routes. I am usually ok with a rough alpine approach, but this one is really grueling. Also this crag needs a makeover with all the old hardware and uncertain anchors.
It is pretty hard to figure out whats what. If you get to the left end of Dead End ledge you will encounter a flake system running leftward- North Ramp, next right - a good ... more >>

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.
