Comments: Going more or less straight up to ok crimps or the near vertical right slanting crack seems doable at maybe grade harder and could eat your fingers.

I went to the sort of horn visible in the picture.

Comments: The little clusters of boulders that make the main area here is one of the best spots around for a little session. You can park close (look for a pull off past the cemetery) so its minutes from the car. The climbing is pretty varied from overhanging jug hauls to steep crimping to slabs and although there is no real classic problem the rock is such that there are numerous variations possible anywhere from V0 to probably V10.

Comments: There is an easier way to get up this face, but the way Old Timer suggests is definitely the best value. Also, looks like a lower start down in the cave that would add a couple grades.

Comments: The stand is pretty wingspan dependent (if you are tall you can reach between pretty decent holds to start). The sit is just freaking hard though.

Comments: Several variations possible on this face, so this line has very likely been done before. Nevertheless it is fairly distinct.

Comments: This is a cool problem. It doesn't look that bad, but while the crimps are pretty good, the feet are terrible throughout.

Comments: Great problem. Taller people may have an advantage at the finish, but pulling up off the ground and getting situated is still hard. Also, for full value, start with your ass as low as possible right under the arete.

Comments: The grade seems height-dependent. You can also do a full sit but starting on the half buried rock at the base and reaching up into the flake. The sit improves it but doesn't add much to the grade. In some ways, this is the best problem using this cool feature.

Comments: Quote from Strand: "I have led this several times..i guess that means I'm a bit fucked up."

It means you're fucking awesome, John. Well within your abilities. I thought for a second about leading it but the climbing up high is still pretty thin. There's too much time to stop and worry on slabs. Soloing them is seriously heady and bravo to anyone that can do it.

Comments: Nice!

Did you guys bolt this on lead or rappel? Not a loaded question; just curious.

Comments: My favorite statistic for this short, dirty, quasi-death route is that John Strand has the second AND third ascents.

Comments: This problem deserves two stars. It's really short (certainly under 10 feet) but fierce and a good examination at the grade. It's perfect for a solo circuit.

Looks better than the Northend or the Barber Wall.

Comments: Handren's book lists this as 11c. The second pitch is listed as 11a (so the first pitch is the crux). The pitch descriptions-- meager as they are-- resemble each other in both MP and Handren's guide.

Anyone have insights on the discrepancy? I have never been on it.

Jim

P.S. This is also a two starred route in Handren. Seems like a worthwhile route to check out.
