Comments: popular for a good reason, very good route. Fred attempted it this spring, thought it way harder then 5.8, said it was easier before. I asked him when he did it last, could not remember, maybe 20 years ago or more.

Comments: Fred insists that he climbed this with an Austrian guy- hence the name, not with Eric or Don. So I showed him his Leavenworth guide book which Viktor likely copied, he still insists it is wrong, says maybe Eric wrote that.

Comments: I don't think this is any harder then 5.9, and it would probably be 5.8 in Ca.

Comments: This was an onsight for me years back, seemed really scary more recently. Bolts are further apart then average Vantage sport climb, not R rated, but tricky and heart pumping.

Comments: description here does not mention that you will want some hand size gear for upper 3rd.

Comments: I agree with above assessment, weird bolting, ground fall potential if you don't make the 3rd clip, awkward and harder by 2 grades then Violator.

Comments: we forgot it was left there, the partner let us know, gave us the other guys phone # but also told us he intended to keep it. The other guy probably left so as not to be confronted about a missing cam, and of course did not answer the phone.

Comments: First time in my life we left a cam on this route by mistake. After leading it, i was lowered and unclipped the cam but expected the follower to clean itThe team right after us collected it, when one of them later said that his buddy cleaned it and intended to keep it exclaiming it was fair booty.

Comments: glad to have you comment on this John, I don't know why more people don't do this route, maybe they just don't use MP. As you know I am a slab run-out wimp, but this route is comfortable for me.

Comments: Beware of the 5.9 at exit 38, sometimes harder then a 10a. Or just a bit sketchy for new leaders.

Comments: FA: CP Little. great route, reachy crux, but there are short ways around it still making it more like 10c

A really fun route if you figure out the puzzle at the start.

Comments: FA: Bryan Burdo. Fun route with juggy traverse at start, just be careful here for ground fall potential. And yes the route finding always seems to perplex folks, the anchor is above the big ledge that crosses the whole wall, just left of the Love Bucket anchor.
