Comments: The simplest would be the Velvet Pedestal, if that last pitch has been cleaned up.

Or, do Steel Pulse to the end, traverse left to the base of "A Hatch". Belay near the v-thread anchor, and go up and right on a 5.9 face-to crack pitch. This last pitch is that on "Lookout Point Direct" (LPD), which hasn't been posted yet.

Others have done Strange Boar -> Frenchwoman -> Black Rock -> last pitch of LPD as above. You can skip the first two by doing Law and... more >>

Comments: Nice topo. It looks like a great climb.

Might it be cool enough up there on a hot summer's day?

Comments: Use of the Mt. Project topo overlay feature would allow you to leave the underlying photo unmarked.

Comments: Nice!

However, I think the correct answer to this koan is 'Because it wasn't a bobcat'.

Comments: Looks very Indexical.
I hope there are some footholds down there somewhere.

Comments: Sounds fantastic Luke.

So, why does the dragon cry?

Comments: But if this is the route to set up the TR, then doesn't it take protection?

What would the 5.5 leader need to bring?

Thanks -

Comments: Very nice, thanks.

Mt. Project also has an overlay tool to draw the routes and make labels. An advantage of that tool is the ability for any viewer to turn it off and see the unmarked photo.

Comments: Lucky for us, very few climbers like to explore new places.

Comments: The anchor at the top of the groove, where the big ledge is, seems much more natural for the anchor. So, I prefer the anchor where it is now.

Also, the current anchor works well for the "Anarchy and Chaos" variation, which goes left of the groove.

Comments: The yellow and red-dashed lines are pitches on the original Lookout Point Direct, which should get posted soon. (The markings are not part of the topo overlay.)

Comments: Very interesting stemming, back-stepping, arete-palming route. At the start, you can use the jugs on the arete to the left. At the top, I did not see any jug from which to clip the anchors. The anchor clip seems like a long reach.

Any similar shots showing the other walls at Index?

Comments: There was once a route of this name at Index. But it fell down and ceased to be. I hope it doesn't happen to this one too.

Comments: I've wondered about making the markings and letters with a woodburner tool. I used to play with one a lot as a kid. Colors though would be tough -- the woodburner might be good for simple signs though.
