Comments: A fun lead for the first half (loved the traversing crack) but then the climbing turns into runout face climbing to the top. Easy climbing up there but a fall would have put me on the ground since I was so far above my last piece. Better left as a toprope.

Comments: A great first lead. I'd like to give it more stars but its just so damn short.

Comments: A convenient way to set toproopes and not a bad first lead. Good rock.

Comments: This climb is Strider Face which clocks in at 10b. Strider is the short 5.6 crack a few feet left of this climb.

Comments: This should be the first crack left of Radagast. Crux is the first 6 feet. After that feels like 5.4ish.

Comments: Would probably want a top belay transitioning from the downclimb after the crux to the rappel ledge. Not much for your hands and if you slipped you'd be toast.

Comments: The descent makes this climb almost not worth it for me when there's much better stuff to climb here. A good warm-up though.

Comments: The chimney is fun but is over much too soon. Worth a tick if you're in the area and want to climb an easy tower chimney. However, don't think this route compares with Owl Rock. There is a reason that circumcised penis shaped rock gets all the climbers. Perhaps we could change the name of this route to something more inspiring like Vaginal Squeeze and then these two rocks would go together like a, well, er, you know ;)

Comments: Upgraded the anchor slings to chains and rappel rings for pitch 1 and mussey hooks for pitch 2. Painted them a nice brown color to match the sandstone.

Comments: Would anyone object if I replaced the anchor/rappel webbing on this climb with climbing chain or mussey hooks? To be certain, I will NOT add any new bolts or replace the old bolts.

Comments: The first pitch is what this climb is known for but there is an awesomely exposed 3rd pitch that leads to the tunnel through om Harding's Chimney. Climb all of Blue Velvet to get there or to bypass the freaking scary 2nd pitch climb Harding's or Scheister.

On the 3rd pitch of those easier routes, after the slab but before the 5.5 gully, look up the improbable looking face and you'll see several bolts heading up the face above you. Well protected at the cruxes but I wouldn't want to fall before... more >>

Comments: Started the 2nd pitch the same as DJ Reyes. No need for insecure runout liebacking with a bad fall; instead get inside the chimney as soon as you can and work your way to the center.

Comments: Just as good, if not better, than many of the overcrowded "classics" on the East Wall.

On a five star system, pitch 1 is four stars, especially if you lead one long pitch to the big ledge. I also used a 70m rope and was able to walk the ledge to build my anchor at the base of the 2nd pitch with about a foot or two of slack left.

For pitch 2, I'd give 2 stars out of five. The gear I used in the offwidth was a #1, a #2, and a #3 metolius nut in that order. I also thought the r... more >>

Comments: IMO more fun and challenging than Dead Man's Rappel. For a harder variation, stay left of the bolt line for the last 10 feet or so.

Comments: Added quick links to the bolt anchor. One of the slings I removed was red on one side and white on the other. Wish I had mussy hooks or I would have added those to the anchor.

Comments: Added quick links to the anchor shared with Cool Hand Luke. One of the slings I removed was red on one side and white on the other. Yikes! If I had mussy hooks I would have thrown those on.

Comments: Added quick links to the second pitch bolt anchor shared with Africa Flake, so now no need to leave gear or trust the faded slings. If I had mussy hooks I would have thrown those on.

Comments: Fun non-commiting climbing (except Jane Spy) on great clean rock in a beautiful setting with spectacular views of Meiss Country. Not sure why it took me so long to finally climb here. I felt the approach was easier than Sugarloaf, though it does get hot in the middle of the summer here.

Comments: Fun climb with two distinct cruxes: the crack and where the face steepens at the third bolt. Great climbing in a great position!

Comments: You could probably throw in a small cam just before 2nd bolt and a larger cam between the 3rd and 4th bolts. Disagree with SuperTopo that this is a good beginning lead climb. The consequence of a fall in the wrong place is too high. I'd say Beer and a Hot Dog, Two Bucks makes a better beginner lead or Hey Y'all, Watch This.

Comments: This climb is short but very fun between the first and last bolts.
