Comments: Thought this route was awesome, might be hard to put the anchors anywhere better due to the juggy dike at the end.

Comments: Thought this was a pretty decent route, I am 6'3" so can't comment about the height thing, 10c felt fair. Maybe 10d, I guess.

Comments: Easier and less sustained than Rawhide, I thought.

Comments: Good route, but definitely at least 10c. Probably as hard as Firepower (in Tombstone pit), the 10d's in yonder North area etc.

Comments: I counted one hand jam at the bottom, and maybe two foot jams. Other than that its a sorta strange face climb in a corner, still a little loose but worth doing once.

Comments: Also only did the first part, thought it was probably harder than 11a though it was the end of the day for me also (route #15).

Comments: There is a trad route on a boulder all by itself that is more North than the Katrina wall, thought it felt about 10d. It starts low in an easy handcrack (optional), moves to a ledge then goes up a finger/hand traverse to hands/jugs out/around a bulge. Anchors look shiny and new, anybody got info?

Comments: "grotty offwidth" seemed to be a decent handcrack with feet on sketchy rock, fun route!

Comments: Fun, start is definitely hard for 10c. Felt it was probably 10d for the area. Interesting route for sure.


Location: CA : San Bernardino Mountains : Big Bear Lake Area : Big Bear North : Holcomb Valley Pinnacles : ... : Epitaph (5.11a)

Comments: Probably only 10b if you're over 6', but definitely a lot of fun regardless. Would imagine it being more difficult if I was shorter

Comments: Crack felt really slick inside, and lieback really difficult. Sorta dirty apart from that..definitely not ideal

Comments: Crack climbing pitches are fun and easy, and the 5.8 psychological crux was not bad at all so maybe I was off route on (the supertopo) pitch 5, but I traversed straight right from the p4 anchor, did not find a piton and barely made it to the two bolts (no rings) just below the "5.9 crux" and ".75 cam." The hard moves on this pitch felt far harder than the "5.9 crux" move and were very runout. If I hadn't been linking pitches I would've been looking at a 30 ft factor 2 pendulum fall, definitely ... more >>

Comments: First pitch was a lot of fun, didn't feel nearly as hard as like Goodrich Pinnacle (so maybe its 5.8?) and probably only PG-13, if that. Anyway, its worthwhile if you're walkin past.

Comments: More fun than the original start, a few options on where you can go too.


Location: CA : Yosemite National Park : Yosemite Valley : Cathedral Spires : Lower Cathedral Spire : South by Southwest (5.11a)

Comments: Felt the boulder problem was the crux (could call that 11a), but the so-called crux pitch seemed more like 10c/d, probably a little harder than Outer Limits p1. Like everyone else...

On a more interesting note, we found a (newer, but very dirty) pot (for cooking, of course) at the top of pitch 2. Nothing like kitchenware booty mid-route. We are now making a lot of soup, would love to know the story of how it got there.

Comments: Hey does anybody know what the bolted route on the arete is between the Kremlin Wall (on the left) and Knightline (on the right)? The route felt pretty new.

Comments: Just a bunch of perfect cracks I dunno what all the fuss is about... Just kidding, route goes easily in 3 pitches with a 60, having done it this way I couldn't imagine doing it any other. Idk what's up with the supertopo pitch lengths, but 1&2 link and 2&3 link with several feet of rope left over (yes with a 60). I had a little bit of drag at the top of the 2nd pitch, but certainly not enough to complain about. Also, there is a bear box at the base, so there ya go.

Comments: Somebody chalked "Wasp at anchors" at the start, but I didn't find any. Although there were a few buzzing around off to the left a little bit, I guess they must've moved. Great route, technical crux seemed to be right at the start

Comments: Maybe not as stiff as edgehogs (I didn't do it), but felt waaay harder than Armadillo to me. And of course it doesn't even compare to the other routes at the cliff seeing as they are apples and bananas in styles (funny how that works)

Comments: Kelly Brown's guide lists this is 10c which seems about right but I mean it's one grade who cares anyway. Usually has a good bit of chalk on it whenever I pass by, some parts do stay pretty slick and green though (non-crucial parts) but that's just because it's in a wet area not because it isn't popular.


Location: TN : Obed & Clear Creek : Lilly Bluff : Ivy League (5.10b)

Comments: In Kelly Brown's guide this route is switched with Poison Ivy. In his guide Poison Ivy is listed as the route just left of the bolted crack (Krieg Crack 11d). The consensus on here seems to be the opposite. Regardless, this route is the one with the beach ball/ saddle like feature at the start and it seems to be about the same in difficulty as the other 10c routes at the cliff. Although the crux sloper move is harder in the humidity and/or when its covered in spiders.

Comments: In Kelly Brown's guide this route is listed as "Ivy League" 11b..which I think explains the beach ball confusion. Ivy League, in his guide is listed as Poison Ivy 11a.
