Comments: Chossy. Possibly drilled. Pretty crappy route.


Location: TN : Deep Creek : Leakage (5.12b)
By: JohnWesely When: Apr 4, 2012

Comments: FWIW, I was told Leakage was 12b by other climbers. The rating on enduro routes is always going to be wonky. Having slightly better endurance can be the difference between a quickly ticking pump clock and getting full recovery on every move.

Comments: The view from the top and position bump this from one star to two. The climbing itself is pretty forgettable.

Comments: If the bottom boulder problem were at Rocktown, it would be the most popular v1 in the park.

Comments: 5.10 sport climbs are usually junk. This one is great.

Comments: Amazing route. Every move on this thing is classic.

Comments: Some idiot put a bolt at the crux on this thing. What a waste of a cool route. I don't have the tools, but hopefully someone can chop it.

Comments: Maybe it is just me, but this thing felt super hard for the grade. I thought the crux felt harder than any single sequence on the brick wall.

Comments: That was just my impression of the route. Maybe I was having an off day.

Comments: Going all the way out is v3ish. V4 is pretty generous.

Comments: Pretty fun route. My partner and I couldn't stop talking about it after we did it.

Comments: I have never been on a harder 12a and have been on easier 12b's.

Location: NC : Rumbling Bald : Cereal Buttress : Frosted Flake (5.9+)
By: JohnWesely When: Oct 31, 2011

Comments: After doing it a few times, I really think Frosted Flake is the best route on the wall, even better than Shredded Wheat. As for Jamming Vs. Lie Backing. Having done it both ways, I felt like it was more strenuous to jam. You can place gear till your heart is content and would probably never fall out of the locker jams, but doing the runout lie back is much less strenuous.

Comments: With the other tree falling down, this route is a pretty strong candidate for a bolted anchor. The next best tree is pretty far back and not at all confidence inspiring.

Comments: Pulling the roof after the crux is definitely the most exciting part of the route.

Comments: This is a really fun climb. The crux is significantly harder than the rest, but the climbing isn't over afterwards by any means. The stemming is mega fun, and the roof at the top is committing and interesting.

Comments: I used ring locks to pull the roof. Don't be like me and miss the good holds.

Comments: Took a nice gear ripper on this yesterday when I slapped for a nothing hold instead of a monster jug after the crux.

Comments: Where does the direct route start? I tried doing it at the obvious place, almost directly beneath the first bolt on the face, and found it to be almost impossible before breaking a hold.

Comments: You could do this route without a single number 2. A number 3, which I didn't bring, would really take some of the runout out. No matter what you bring, there are a few sections with insecure, sandy moves with severe potential for injury in a fall.

Comments: This route is pretty serious. If you don't clip the chicken bolt on Variations, you would definitely die/ be maimed if you fell at the cruxy move before the bolt.
