Comments: A slackline can produce 1000's lbs of force in the direction of line. A climber only acts in the direction of gravity. With the tilted cap stone, a slackline on this formation was a poor choice. I am sure they made a cool video, though.

Comments: I think it is more of a stop taking my f'ing picture look. I have seen that one before.

Comments: It almost looks like the traverse into Space Invaders right below the first bolt, but it is the final traverse on Outer Space near the 2nd to last pin.

Comments: There are ~7 bolted/mixed routes to the left of "Sun and Steel". At least one of them has 3+ pitches and tops out to the left.

Comments: Standing on the slabs below Spectreman, you can see the routes on the East Corner. The fastest approach to the area goes right by Spectreman, so this is the best reference point. You will have to hike through the trees with no defined trail. It is 200-300yrds SW of Spectremen. Sorry you guys couldn't find it.

Comments: The hornet nest is gone. The poor bolting on P2 still remains. The 1st bolt is in a weird spot based on where the anchors are located. You will cross load your biner, so don't fall before clipping the second bolt.

Comments: Be careful of the sharp edge on the dihedral @ 2nd to last bolt. It could cut your rope if you were unlucky!

Comments: If you move left at the last bolt, it is very straightforward, and it doesn't feel runout or cruxy.

Comments: All of the first ascents you are claiming were probably solo'ed 20+ years ago.

Comments: There is currently a fixed #4 on the Sex Comedy finish. We only had one #3 and #4, which worked out with back cleaning the #3 once.

Comments: I wonder how many climbers have done this when they discovered they didn't have their climbing shoes when they reached the base. We reached the base of Scenic Cruise in the dark, in order to beat an approaching winter storm to the top. Somewhere on the descent, my climbing shoes came unclipped from my harness. After reaching the top of the second rap, we found them sitting on a rock. We decided to not press our luck and climb Midsummer's instead. The storm rolled in about 1pm and after our fi... more >>

Comments: I did an interesting variation above the first tree. Head left to a ramp system that turns into a hanging dihedral. The ramp slowing disppears until the crux bulge (5.6). It is very exposed with good rock (poor pro).

Comments: There are 3-4 routes to the right of the "Nod" area that might be worth doing. Head right from the base and you should see the routes.

Comments: OK, maybe this one does deserve the "R" rating. If you blow the crux move at the top and that purple C3 blows, you are going for a big ride!

Comments: Mark Wilford showed me an interesting variation to this problem. Instead of reaching for the high RH side-pull, use the upside down undercling hold for your right hand about 6 inches lower. Very tricky and fun, give it a try!

Comments: The bird shit is about a 3 out 10 on the crap-o-meter on P5. Nothing to be concerned with. I thought this route was more sustained and physical than Scenic Cruise! The ear on P4 is slightly committing but easier than it looks. A #5 halfway out the ear will calm the nerves. P2 is probably closer to 5.8-9 and 215 ft long. I ended up doing some harder moves with 30 ft runouts to avoid the bad rock. We didn't place any RPs, but a couple small TCUs did get used.

Comments: On Aug. 24th, some guys were doing a long 2 rope rap near CG and dislodged a 0.75 cam when they pulled the rope. Not sure who they were though....

Comments: Will, someone went a little crazy with the bolts on previously climbed lines. The climbs were probably returned to the original state before someone got a drill for Christmas.

Comments: Pitch two is a rewarding lead, it is harder than COAM, Loose-J, or High Plains Drifter at Lumpy! You are looking at a 20-25 footer if you mess up the high steps at the end of the slab. It looks like you can bypass this difficulty on the right as Justin mentions above, though.

Bad ass for 1975, indeed!
