Comments: Great warm up with beautiful exposure. Don't make the same mistake I did and only take 11 draws (I should really consider looking at the routes before I climb them).

Comments: I'm 5'8" and had to stretch pretty darn hard to reach the onsight (the key hold is an optical illusion in that it doesn't look like anything from below). After you gain the positive edge, it's just a high step and a hard pull to the easy stuff on the headwall above. This climb receives no fun points from me. Not worth doing IMO unless you are tall and trying to add an eleven to your tick list; it is an annoying 10+/11- move with ledge fall potential in the midst of a dull 5.7 face. ... more >>

Comments: Super classic! Solid 11 face, not for the faint of heart, fingers or toes. Micro-edge-fest! The business starts just after the fourth bolt and won't let up until just before the last. You are fore-warned.

Comments: At first I thought this was solid 11c, but the second time I climbed it I was able to work out a better sequence in the crux. If you implement good foot work and balance, it's more like 11a/b. Also, my buddy Landon TRed it and found a good mantle variation at the crux to gain the right foot stem. Not sure how hairy that move would be on lead though. After the tricky crux, the grade eases down to very fun 5.10 face climbing. All in all, it's a good climb.

Comments: If you manage to get past the bottom 3 clips with out getting flash pump...it's in the bag (the rest is like 9ish?). The top can be pretty loose and dirty up right so stand clear at the bottom like Mono said. Good views from the top.

Comments: I could've sworn it was 10+ before I checked the guidebook, but I guess it could be the infinite amount of ledges/rests between the business. Haha, what a clean line though. Seems like a great warm up for Ten Digit.

Comments: ticking is not to be tolerated on anything below 13. Especially on a route as chalked and juggy as this precious gem.

Comments: the pinch feature directly above my right knee is pivotal for balance as you smear your feet up and gain the jug system I'm holding in this pic

Comments: i'm 5'9 and found no issues with this route. there is definitely no need to dyno. I enjoyed the movement, especially the start. just smear right and use that pinch feature for balance as you reach up out of the dish to the start of the juggies.

Comments: i nearly onsighted this...got pumped going to the chains. but none-the-less, it would've been my hardest onsight by far. I'd agree with everyone and say it was more like a super sustained 11b with maybe one C move in there somewhere. But it's hard to tell with overhang like that.

Comments: Bolted crack: ahhhh. I'm sure if the rock weren't freezing cold this route would've been less numbing and more amazing. I'd say 10d/11a.

Comments: Super fun route once you get onto the face after 4th bolt or so. Really cool/exposed moves working into the dihedral. Don't let the 5.6 run out between the 2nd and 3rd bolt psyche you away from this gem.

Comments: Starts with an awkward Eldo-like dihedral with a Table Mesa roof at the crux. Interesting combination.

Comments: The initial move is a little balancy/pumpy; follow the arrow and start left with the rope on your left side to prevent entanglement.

Comments: Um. So the 4TH BOLT: the NUT POPPED OFF today after someone took a fall on top rope at the tricky start. Good thing it was not a lead fall. Couldn't find where the nut fell to. Will replace ASAP. until then;

only climb this route if you have a 3/8" nut and corresponding hanger for 4TH BOLT, as someone may have taken it as booty by now. If someone gets to it before I do, you may consider epoxy to keep the nut securely tightened; to prevent further incidents.

Comments: ...and when will that be...?

P.S. Bozo No no needs a more secure first bolt....

and to the reach the top of the Banana Tower you can easily jump or anchor the tree that's like 5 or 10 feet away.

Comments: this route was my girlfriend's hardest redpoint to date. i lead it afterwards to clean and it definitely seemed a little awkward, slick and pumpy for an 8. we had two beginners with us that couldn't even pull the opening sequence. for this i'll give it a +. could even be a 9- at parts.

Comments: i wish the chimney were bigger, as it's the funnest part. good route for trad noobs. rope drag is cured with a high first placement. i used a camalot #2. There is however a nosey tree halfway up. and a slightly undesirable traverse to the chains. still worth it.
