Comments: I see them- Jigsaw, Fat/ skinny, Millennium, M&M, Powerhouse etc, as separate from Sunshine wall, so would be seen when opening the main Vantage area, not when opening Sunshine.

Comments: One could supplement the old bolts with a few cams on the way up. The bolting is ok, but sorta off at the lower crux and really spread out up higher, but the climbing is easier up higher.

Comments: There is some razor sharp rock on this route, use long slings to help with the rope dragging over the rock.

Comments: this is a fun route, however suffers from poor bolt placement, be careful and maybe use long runners.

Comments: Hi Vance, it is listed under Headlight Point, new route by Jens K. I liked it, maybe 11a or 10d. There is also another route there, maybe 10a?

Comments: This and it's alternate Displacement are both fun, good to use long slings for some clips and I think both are about 10b.

Comments: the crux is hard and has 2 ways to get through it. The upper portion is pretty run-out, but also pretty easy.

Comments: In my opinion it would make sense to have Relief Camp, Motherland, Slabbage patch all under the Overhaul wall heading. This is the way Bryan set it up.

Comments: I would add that this area is part of the Overhaul Wall. A good trail leads left where the main trail crosses the stream to the right headed toward Gritscone. The trail leading left goes north and in about 5-10 min. you will be in front of the left end of the wall, make a right, pass the Motherland and cross scree and boulders entering the woods and keep going up hill.

This is a good and interesting route, just maybe not great for beginner leaders, somewhat spooky bolting. So be careful.
