Comments: Best done as one long pitch from ground, starting on RC, don't need a ton of gear. Doubles of mid size gear works aok. Extend slings on RC section to avoid drag. I used a 70 m rope with plenty to spare, my partner counted remaining rope and thinks was about 55m for the pitch.

Comments: While at the base and preparing to climb, an unexplained rock came sailing from above. Also noticed very recent rockfall at the base of morning star (to the left of this climb). Yesterday a friend told me he heard from a local that Orc tower above is deteriorating and may be coming down soon, have not verified, but seems reasonable since rockfall occurred recently when I was there and you can see evidence of very fresh rockfall near-by. Something to consider while in the area.

Comments: Lower 4 pitches...wear your helmet, especially if others are above. Lots of loose stuff. Not typical Squamish climbing.

Comments: Spooky blocks which we avoided by going up the beautiful original Beckey corner with some aid.

Comments: I used a number #4 to protect the top section, though maybe could do it without…will have to go back.

Comments: Don't get lured into new bolts on the first pitch, staying on the right is the way to go! The left is dirty. Clip the button head SMC hangers and go! Bolts could use replacing. Fun route. 2 Pitch is interesting route finding too.

Comments: Fun route for L-worth. Crak is a bit dirty and needs a little scrub. Only 2 bolts on route. Also 60m gets you to the bolted anchor, can down climb or rap from there.

Comments: Best way to climb this fun route (IMO) is to link pitch 1 &2. Works fine with a 60m and standard rack.

Comments: Awesome to link old grey mare with this in one long pitch as Shaun suggested. I brought a 4# but not necessary also brought doubles of mid range, and again not necessary.

Comments: Guide says 100 feet, not correct also Not 130ft as in description above -about 110 or 115', 70m rope is great. A few #2 and about 7# 1, if you have something in-between 1 and 2 Camelot, will find good spots.

Burley steep almost overhang tight hand crack forever

Comments: APPROACH info from LOOKOUT side-straightforward easy trail walking most of way. About 80 mins from camp to warlock-voodoo notch with full packs moderate pace. 20-30 mins down gulley to base of climb following mostly obvious trail.. (Staying near skiers left "hug voodoo") Top out and return to packs at notch hike out easy trail to camp. Pretty easy approach, and can leave gear to climb other routes next day. Fun route. No need for anything bigger than #4 bd.

Comments: This is the newer climb to the left of rat face & jiffy pop. No Chossy corner on rat face and RF trends right.

Comments: Recommend keep 5.8 separate from the 10d as the guidebook suggests unless you're a confident 10d leader. P1 and p4 are the money pitches. P2 is fun. P3 has short burley cruxes. Last bolted pitch is fun (p5). This is an awesome steep route. Reminds me of index.
