This is Sentinel Crack. It's take from the top of Lost Ego. I could have snagged a better photo by moving further to my right, but I didn't really notice at the time.

Comments: 11a/b for the sake of downgrading randy.

Comments: The chalked-up sidepull between the pocket and the bolt in Randy's "start" photo broke off. It left a new sidepull in its place, but have a spotter be watchful while you're using the new one, as it will almost undoubtedly break off after enough use. The change doesn't affect the grade.

Comments: Is there any interesting bit behind the shared name between this route and the Mississippi Burning at the New?

Comments: Does anyone have any information about the .12a finish that the guidebook mentions? Is that follow the right side of the nose the whole way until it ends and then traversing back left to the anchors?

Edit: I must be missing something on the crux at the top (should be 11a/b version), since the last 10 feet of Annadonia feels balls harder than the entire 50 or 60 feet of Chinese Freedom. As far as I can tell I seem to be following the guidebook's line.

Comments: Considering the crux is a "tight hands crux" I don't think it's safe to layout such a generic "softest 10a" claim. Too handsize dependent.

Comments: The link on the side is out-dated, and will lead you to a dead end. I haven't found the same file actively hosted elsewhere on the internet. However, thanks to web archive, you can find it here:

Comments: Looking for some beta:

Draws: How many trad style draws should I bring? I have plenty of 2' and 4' slings. Out of the ~22 draws we bring, how many should be 2' or 4' extendable? I can't say we'll be linking all linkable pitches, but I imagine we'll link some, and would like to avoid rope drag. Basically, how wandering are these pitches (in general, obviously)?

Ropes: I have two 60s and a 70. I see in the section above that a 60 is enough to get up and down "90%" of routes, so I kind of t... more >>

Comments: Many of the comments on MP.com and RC.com are old, and I have a few questions I'd like to ask.

I am thinking about taking an early January trip down to T-Wall.

The leading in my group will be restricted to 5.8 or less, would we be waiting in lines to get on routes?

Two years after the last post about it, how is the theft issue in the area?

Thank you very much!

Comments: Matt, many of the climbs less than 5.11 are both slabby and ledge-y. Sometimes these bolts are placed in such a way to avoid cratering on a slab. That being said, I suppose there are some climbs I feel could have been bolted differently.
