Comments: Switched the type field from 'Sport' to 'Trad' and updated the protection field. I have not personally climbed the route so correct me if I am mistaken.

Comments: Scamper up and traverse a grungy ledge to obtain the first bolt. In an about-face the ledges and choss give way to near-vertical, sparsely featured, solid face. Dance with your fingers and toes over edges, crimps, and nubs. After a brief exhale at the forth bolt, decipher a disappointingly smooth lip to reach a recessed crack. Trend right using large edges and a horizontal crack past two bolts to the summit.

6 bolts to recessed anchors shared with Valdez is Coming. We found it best to belay f... more >>

Comments: I climbed it in a single pitch, clipping all the bolts, and noticed no rope drag. I would have unclipped the third bolt as suggested but was unable to easily do so.

Comments: In late November I found the sun/shade situation to be as follows:

  • Beer Garden: An hour of afternoon sun; otherwise fully shaded. The left side of the wall sees more sun than the right.
  • The Heater: Very sunny in the morning. Likely sees late afternoon shade.

Comments: The bolting on this line is rather odd. The first bolt in particular should be higher to prevent a falling climb from hitting the ledge. If the climb is at your grade use caution.

Comments: I found myself unable to clip the forth bolt until it was at my waist which would have made for a very exciting, but safe, fall. A heady climb on fantastic rock.

Comments: Does anyone have info on the routes not listed either here or in the guidebook?

  • Between Rain and Queer. Climbs right facing corner to face. Large hole down low. May not have proper anchors.
  • Between Queer and Malt Liquor Man. Listed as the Open Project in Squeezing The Lemmon II. Cold shuts.
  • Between Malt Liquor Man and Too Steep For You Know Who. Climbs dihedral to shared anchors.

Comments: The "Alpine Climbing" checkbox was toggled on the Gargoyle Wall. It is no longer toggled and will hopefully filter down to the climbs shortly. Good catch!

Comments: The layout of this crag is a bit of mystery at the moment. Any insight would be appreciated. A few observations:

  • An unlisted sport or mixed route is at the toe of the crag.
  • There is a trad route with visible anchors immediately uphill.

Comments: First round; first minute. This climb is relentless crimps from the dyno start until the forth bolt. To overcome I precisely mapped where to place my index fingers on multiple holds. Zombie Flanders is painful, short, and unforgiving yet kind-of awesome in a sadistic sense.

This line felt significantly harder than neighboring routes of the same grade such as Knights of the Wrong Tissue, Gneiss Boys, and Squeezing The Lemmon.

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.
