Comments: The hardest move may be the very first move off the ground. Also, above the tips crack section, you can go up the left side or the right side of the next big fin-chockstone. The left side is more natural, and less of a grunt then the right side.

Comments: Major rockfall reported Sept. 6, 2014, striking the lowest 5 pitches. So, there may be loose rock in the area for awhile. Be extra careful and avoid climbing soon after a rain.

Also, some of the bolts may be damaged.

Comments: Thanks Rafe.

If nothing is added soon, I'll delete it.

But you can add description using the "Improve this page" button.


Let me know if you see other routes with insufficient description. Sometimes the posters just seem to get interrupted and return to finish the job. I don't see any strong motivation for either fluffing the stats or point rank, though it may happen.

Comments: The anchor at the start of pitch 4 now has new bolts. They were replaced just a few days after my previous comment. Thanks Otto and partner.

Comments: Hi Geoff,

I'm guessing about 100 feet or less, and a little uphill.

I TRed another route just right of The Lawn Rake that follows some face holds leading to a seam in a left-facing shallow corner. Thin 5.10-5.11 moves. It needed some more cleaning at the top though. Next time I visit, I'll see about finishing it off.

Comments: Thanks for the heads-up Jessica.

This apparent increase in the shedding of rocks is troublesome. I hope it stops before someone gets hurt.

I never did feel good being under Orc Tower.

Comments: Avoid using the left edge and the large pocket-edge directly below the nose.

Perhaps the easiest of the three routes on this face.

Hardest parts are at the bottom and right next to the nose.

Comments: About P3, I think there are two ways to do it. The harder rating applies to the way in which you stay left of the arete.

Comments: Nice reflection, great photo.
At first, I didn't realize there were rocks in the water, and was trying to figure out what was going on with the reflection.

Comments: I did it long ago, but went back this summer and couldn't even TR the techy part just below the roof. It's definitely a challenging route I'll be back for.
