Comments: Horse Head Arch in Blodgett. It's definitely been climbed a number of times but the approach is fairly heinous. One could possible approach via the ridge from the Blodgett lookout.

Indeed Blodgett is an incredible place!

Comments: If anyone has any questions about Suesca feel free to message me. I've spent about two months here climbing.

Suesca is an incredible area and most definitely worth a visit!

Comments: certainly an interesting ethical debate. Using natural gear on a sport climb. Yet I agree that there is one placement within the 'somewhat delicate' flake. My apologize for fixing an eyesore but I am by no means the first person to do these lines on gear.

Comments: Linking pitches 1 & 2 is logical and makes for a stellar pitch! Much different than your typical Bitterroot line. The whole thing is stellar especially the fingers on the crux pitch.

Comments: not unreasonable on gear. Brassies are the name of the game

Comments: By no means an unreasonable trad line. Gear is good but spaced in a few areas. Fixed a nut at the 3rd bolt.

If on gear a rack to 3" is sufficient

Comments: The 5.7 on this wall is named "Bar Wrench Route" and the 5.9 is "The Ant Route"

Christopher, keep in mind that the goal of Mountain Project is to be a quality climbing route database with relevant descriptions and information.

If you haven't climbed a route simply do not submit it to MP.

Do not make up names for a route - "unknown" is not acceptable either

try to give accurate beta on protection. e.g. how many bolts.

Comments: This is called Flashdance 5.8

Yes there is a decent run out from the last bolt to the chains. A .5 protects this

Comments: called "Bop 'Till You Drop" 5.10

a well protected route with safe well thought out clipping stances.

I do not recall any issues with thin chains

Comments: Here are the correct route names with the correct grades.

The crag is called the "Dance Crag"

The chimney is called 'Bombay Boogie' 5.7

manky unnecessary bolt before entering chimney where finger to hand size cams. For now you can lower off the bolt midway.

The route just to the right with the small roof

Waltz to Hands 5.9

The supposed sketch lay back route is "Bop 'Till You Drop" 5.10. I don't recall any issues with too thin of chains.

The route furthest to the left on the west facing ... more >>

Comments: This route is called 'Bombay Boogie" 5.7 not .10+

I would definitely agree that the grade is consistent with the Bitterroot. You should climb any route before you try to take up space for a route on MP.

\There is a bolt midway which is not needed and the anchors have been chopped. It be great to see some new ones put in

Comments: Yes often times when routes are bolted the difficulty is easier than placing gear because gear can often time occupy crucial holds. Rating off a TR ascent is weak

Comments: The wide pitch is long but really low key. There's plenty of smaller pro on the pitch. I'd say that instead of bringing a #5 bring some longer slings and girth hitch the chockstones.

Looks like it could take gear in most parts from the photo.
