Comments: The moves we felt warranted a 10a rating were the last 15 feet or so of the route, face climbing above the crack to the anchors. Maybe you found an easier path than we did, as frequently happens with new climbs.

I'm glad to hear people are getting out here, and appreciate all the input and feedback.

Comments: Nice job sending it with gear! Did you top out at our anchors, or stay left where it was more featured?

Comments: Above the last bolt, the climbing seemed to stay in a water groove trending left. If you anchored above the water groove at the ledge, I think there would be a lot of friction on the rope when lowering. So the last bolt is probably a good spot to end the climb.

The crux is right off the ledge about 25 feet up, watch those ankles.

Comments: Unless lots of people disagree, I don't think the bolts need to be moved. Canada Eric clipped all bolts just fine with his beta, so it is safe to climb that way, and I don't like the idea of moving them left to force people to stay left.

Glad you guys enjoyed the route!

Comments: I was curious to find out if someone would find a path up the far right slab/crack feature. I am a sucker for arÍtes, so it never felt contrived for me to stay on the arÍte.

I'll adjust the grade, and try your beta when I'm out there next.

Comments: One bonus about this area is that one side faces due east, one side due west, making it very easy to chase sun/shade.

One safety note - last fall I attempted the route labeled South Rib on jbak's topo. The route was very good, but I never found the anchors. I climbed way above the last bolt, but down climbed back to the bolt. Maybe I missed the anchors, or maybe they have been added, but just a heads up.

Comments: Jbak, I was surprised to hear you hiked out here, but never climbed anything. It turned out to be a fun little area.

The leftmost bolted route on the wal is currently a closed project, but should be sent soon.

Comments: I have no info on the FA, other than the assumption that Bob Murray probably climbed it back in the day. Rain Chaser sounds like a perfect name to bestow upon it!

Comments: I've climbed this, and I'm sure it's been climbed long before that. Fun problem to try after you've sent Leaning Crack, although I thought it was a couple grades harder than v3.

Comments: On the second pitch of Inner Passage, which is the first route (I think...) you come to when you descend the east side of The Fortress. The tunnel section is on the second pitch. Overall, it's not a great climb, but a pretty cool experience.

Comments: jbak's linkup between Before Limitations and Days so the New is a very good endurance challenge, with good movement and several cruxy sections. A little bit of hollow rock detracts from the overall quality, but definitely one of the better 12a's I've done on the lower part of the mountain. You will need 19 draws for this one.

Comments: Elegant edging leads to a high crux and a powerful finish. Definitely a Tucson classic for the grade - as good as Tsunami or Sentenced (if you can overlook the glue...).

Comments: Not as good as Something Else, but probably a letter grade harder for me. After using the sharp sidepull at the beginning, I found a sequence that avoided some of the other painful crimps, so it isn't too bad.

Comments: Climbed this on Oct 21, 2012 and saw no evidence of bees.

A great climb with lots of variety and some thoughtful moves. I did not bring the #4, but wish I would have, as the move onto the left face felt pretty committing with out it.

Comments: When I was at this boulder, we downclimbed the tall slab on the backside (probably a 30 ft 5.9 funky downclimb). It was kinda sketchy, so downclimbing and jumping from the problems is probably the best option.

Comments: Start standing on the boulder at the base, and there are a few small crimps to choose from. The hardest part is getting established on the boulder and making the first move left to a decent crimp. As you climb up, the holds get progressively better.
