This is the start of the route.  Very easy start on less than vertical rock.  Plentiful holds in the left facing dihedral.

Comments: I'd give this rig 4 stars if it wasn't for the slimy OW finish. Slick fists at the bottom are rewarded by jugs and good horizontals right when you need them. Great rests, variety of movement and all around fun. Superb route.

Comments: Don, dogs are ok at Stone. Leashed is probably best, but most climbers will be on the slab and not bouldering so use your best judgement. Climbers pass through the boulder field on the south face to get to roped routes though, so there's that. As far as the book, I try to support an area and all the establishment and documenting efforts when I can- one of the best ways to do that is to buy the guidebook. Aaron and Dan B. have put tons of work into it and it's a quality publication. Not to m... more >>

Comments: Yes, it counts, and it is punishable by $5,000 fine. From the latest Williams guidebook for the area: "Cliff jumping is defined as entering the lake from a height greater than one's own." Please do not do this if you are a climber. If you want to be a badass, get on routes above your ability and take massive whips. Don't jeopardize things for the rest of us.

Comments: Greg, take a look at Zoo View page under Circus Wall. The descent is described there. It is the same rappel station that you use to descend Sentinel Buttress.

Comments: There is a small alcove probably 50-75 yards before you reach this sign (coming from the Byrd's Nest direction) where you can take a left and get almost a bird's eye view of the Summit Crag. It's a good place to post someone up to take pics and also it allows a less "scrambly" approach to the base. Also, this approach alleviates creating more erosion and having to step over the "trail line" that you mention in one of your other pictures.

Comments: I agree Emil. It's a shame too because it's really not needed for pro. The crack under the arete right there takes good pro and there is good pro just after the tree as well. I have a feeling though that the beating the tree is taking is as much from people resting on it and using it to hold onto as from slinging it.

Comments: The approach via Berry Hollow is pretty mild, but it is long. From the Summit downward to Bushwhack though... that's a bit of a slog- especially getting back up.

Comments: I'm with those that put this thing at ll-. I thought it was a bit tougher than 10.c. Stellar route.
