Comments: As is becoming my style, I left two quickdraws and two alphine draws on this route 9/27/2014. Unfortunately I have not returned and likely will not until next season. Feel free to use them but be sure to pay attention to their condition. Feel even freer to return them. Thanks and sorry.

Comments: Another slice please! A wonderfully challenging route with great movement on interesting features. While the broken nature of the climbing might keep some away, each layer has enough action that I was thankful for intermissions.

Caution is suggested at the top of the second layer. Three feet to the right of the 7th bolt and likely off route is a massive, head-sized, horn-like rock. I believe it is entirely fractured and flexes when touched. I personally did not try to remove it due to my b... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the thought provoking feedback. I avoid the back wall on Limestone Cowgirl but use it on Swiss Miss. To call one feature on while calling the other off is hypocritical and arbitrary. I suppose it is up to the individual how to approach each route.

I reverted the established grade to 5.12a.

Comments: Downgraded to the established grade of 11a as not using all available features just seems silly.

Comments: It has been two years but that sounds right. I recall a high crux that involves tenuous moves to the left of the bolts. I don't remember the specific sequence; just a vague recollection.

Comments: By rename I meant prefixing or appending something like "[Var]". I was not suggesting that the route's given name be altered.

Comments: On Mountain Project, which essentially has infinite space, I personally see no issue with posting variations. Give climbers and users options and let them decide their worth.

That said not all variations are created equal and there is a spectrum of opinions on what makes a notable variation. I would contend that a significantly harder (for the crag or region) or more aesthetically pleasing line is worth noting. There are few such lines in my opinion.

The Orifice Wall is regionally unique in... more >>

Comments: An interesting but inconsistent line. The first 3 bolts are powerful, sustained, and technical. The crux sequence is a unique undercling to cross-through crimp with a drop-knee. Unfortunately the route finishes with a whimper as opposed to a whipper. The last two bolts try to force the climber onto harder territory but the features to the right are the natural line.

5 bolts to chains. Some may opt to stick clip the first bolt.

Comments: A fantastic line on great stone that isn't over until the chains. This route is sustained with varied movement: crimps, side pulls, jugs, a finger lock, and an undercling. I especially enjoyed deciphering foot sequences and rests.

7 bolts to chains. While it isn't critical extending the third draw straightens the line.

Comments: The new 'Improve This Page' feature allows submissions to be updated. If this proves problematic I can assist.

I will contact the contributor and request that the topo be added.

Comments: The anchors are presently just two mallions. I suspect the leaver biners were nabbed by an unknowing or ungrateful party. Please do not remove carabiners at the tops of climbs. They are there for your convenience.

Comments: While the chains are certainly not necessary, they make cleaning the line much easier. Hence I would like to see them remain.

Comments: It is just the description I use for this type of photo, the only type that can easily be taken when climbing as a duo. My intention is to help folks locate routes.

Comments: Chains and leaver biners added 6/22/2014.

There is a slightly harder variation that starts down and right. It joins the main route after 4 or 5 bolts.

Comments: A helmet is recommended for the belayer as I pulled a number of palm-sized pieces, in addition to inducing a constant drizzle of grit.

I find the low angle start surprisingly challenging until I wire a sequence. The layback moves up the arete, which make the climb, are unique and grin-inducing. The final moves on the arete along with a tricky clip have always felt hard to me but perhaps this is simply due to flawed beta.

Comments: 4 bolts to mussy hook anchors. Sustained, technical climbing on stellar rock that demands precise footwork and a thoughtful sequence. Loved it.

Comments: 4 bolts to mussy hook anchors. Interesting movement with odd-angled holds that eventually give way to jugs.

Comments: A nice, moderate line with grin-inducing, juggy features. An oddity for Mount Lemmon.

I found the placement of the first bolt a bit baffling. I scrambled around the small headwall that the bolt is in, skipping it.

Comments: I pulled off an undercling between the last bolt and the anchor on May 17, 2014. While it doesn't change the grade, it is a bummer to lose a cool hold.
