Comments: Yes, the last pitch is stellar and about as atmospheric as they come. However, there is just too much junk rock and bird crap on this route for it to be "classic". Combine pitches 1-3 to bypass the poor belay at Pigeon Flake. C4 #5 is the ideal size for the crux.

Comments: Have been thumbing through the eBook for a few days now and it is superbly done. The new picture layout sans topos is great (i.e., Euro standard). The route descriptions are dead on. The history, bios, and anecdotes are hilarious and chalk full of pertinent data. This is the new Eldo guide gold standard. Thanks Steve Levin for the labor of love to make this a winner!

Comments: A budding classic, make no mistake about it. Currently, even though a bit dirty in spots it's just very good. If you have the moxie to send Foxtrot or Crazy Fingers don't miss out on this great finish. The belay seems dangerous with all that loose choss on the slopping shelf - would a bolted anchor a bit lower be safer?

Comments: Actually, they are on The Rosy-Toit which breaks left from the top of P2 of Le Toit (i.e., where the belayer in the photo is standing) and joins Rosy Cruxifiction.

Comments: James,

Beautiful. Thanks for sharing this gem. What's the original size on this pre upload to MP? Would love to use it as a wall paper for a dual screen.

Comments: Maybe an elephant is being herded past the belayer who is now on the river wall.

Really dig the swami, Bob! That must have been the primo model you have on there - two inch multi wrap. A few "takes" on that rig and you have a weeks worth of ab work outs.

Comments: Looks like Wayne being belayed by Kevin on Kickin' Chicken which starts on Wild Turkey then veers left half way up.

Comments: I'm a bit perplexed why this was bolted. Having an anchor at the top is very convenient, but the other two bolts are not needed. With a SR and a #4 Camalot it's as safe as it gets.

Comments: Note, currently, there is no fixed pin protecting the crux second pitch finger crack/roof. A mix of small cams and nuts works nicely. The R rating is unwarranted as there is just enough modern gear to keep things under control.

Comments: Bob,

Thank you for posting these historical shots. Great stuff! All these photos show tremendous fitness and poise - a hallmark of hard climbing regardless of the era.

Comments: Brad Bond and I talked and the consensus is that Brad and his partner probably did the FA about ten years ago onsight. Congrats! I spent about an hour scrubbing the slab on my lead so it's cleaned up a good bit.

Comments: After the crack tapers into a left-facing corner in a sloping dish feature and the climbing eases way up climb up another 10' feet and set a bely on a nice ledge that is a bit jagged in spots. Save a gold and red Camalot for the belay. Pitch two is fairly dirty and probably gets done once every five years or so. I was scared considering this was only 5.9 climbing. I wonder where Kenny took the plunge from?

Are the free grades in the topo currently accurate?

Comments: Short and sweet. I highly commend anyone that can onsight as some of the gear and moves are tricky. If not comfortable at the grade, be cautious just after the start above the ledge which has sparse pro.

Comments: Position and movement mix nicely throughout. Finish requires a dash of mental stamina - embrace it.

At all key climbing junctures bomber pro is in hand. If you want to lead routes with top rope crux climbing, then journey to one of the many Front Range clip up crags.

Comments: Once this cleans up with some more ascents and the flakes at mid route get sorted out, it's a two star route.
