Comments: If anyone happens to climb 'Cres-Sent' at the Steep, I would appreciate it if you can retrieve my quickdraws. I seem to have lost momentum on the route and will likely not be able to make it there within the next month. Thanks!

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.

Comments: Two quickdraws were removed; one of which was turned into a leaver biner. It will be interesting to see if they remain.

Comments: Strong work, Alex. You have once again demonstrated that these unfinished projects are indeed possible. Any change to the proposed grade?

Comments: This climb is phenomenal! Very much recommended for those who enjoy delicate, technical lines such as War Of The Worlds and The Planet Eater. All three lines are classic and comprise what I refer to as the "Lord Of The Rubber" trilogy.

I suspect the first bolt is so high as to not intrude on Just a Fantasy. A 0.4 C4 may protect some of the runout while adding rope drag.

Comments: *** WARNING ***

An active beehive has been reported behind the flake that Senior Saga is on. Approximately 8 feet left of the 5th bolt.

Comments: A nice addition to Wind Wall. Fairly sustained with slopers, mantels, and delicate feet. A crux at the start and one at the finish.

Comments: Ha! I am not sure I would be able to clip even with shoulder length draws. My tactic for next time is shorter draws that I will just clip at my waist. The fall isn't very far and totally clean, just desperate. The finish really makes the route so it would be shame to avoid it.

Thanks for the name and FA info.

Comments: The second to last hanger fell off while I was at the anchors. I was able to locate the nut, but not washer, and hand tighten it. I'll start carrying my wrench in my pack and put together a small maintenance kit. Apologies for the amateur repair job on this one.

Comments: The reason pitch 6 ends where it does is likely an artifact of rope length at the time. A 50m rope, which is just over 160ft, would not have reached the final anchors.

Comments: Updated the description to note the link-up and the 70M rope requirement. Promoted EFR's comment to a condition report upon request.
