Comments: Don't you know?

If you climb any thing in The Garden, it's mostly for the entertainment of the tourons.

Seriously, not a bad route to practice placing gear for a first time tradster. It's a nice way to set up a TR for the other fun climbs on that spire.

Comments: Hats off to you, mountainmicah83.

Did this route a couple years ago w/ Mr. Dunn and at pitch two watched the footholds crumble to dust as he passed each one, I was seriously thinking I'd like to have a couple daisies to clip pin to pin and just get that crap over with.

Post up when you finish p-2. I'd really like to see how it pans out.

cheers

Comments: A 70m rope will get you down from the top of pitch two, you'll end up on the traverse ledge to the Practice Slabs with rope to spare but not enough to reach below the chopped steps. Rap off the side in the gully, NOT the FACE !

From here, you can downclimb or pull the rope and rap from the one bolt that's right in front of you on the traverse ledge.

You can semi protect the first moves with a #2 in a po... more >>

Comments: Did Snuggles to Fall Crack yesterday w/ Jim D.

I don't know what all the fuss is about???? Ain't nothing but a chicken wing and fall crack goes just fine.

I think this is one of the best climbs in The Garden.
No tourons, No toproping guides, and NO waiting to climb.

I say let the punters have Potholes, West Point, and Cowboy. I wish there were more climbs like Snuggles to Fall Crack in The Garden.

Old style Camalot 4.5 or new 5 will protect yer butt just fine.

P.S. it's not as sandy now....... more >>
