Comments: Nice route with interesting movement. We climbed as two pitches, but perhaps this is more personal preference.

Comments: The first bolt hanger is gone. Bring a wired nut if one wants to use the placement.

Comments: This is another route where a piece before the first bolt is safer.

Comments: We climbed Sunshine Face to get to this exit with a light rack (wires, one set cams #0.5 to #4 Camalot and long draws). The moves at the wider crack are not too hard with help from face holds on the right. The #4 is good somewhat up the crack. Things get a bit more murky at the top of the crack where it becomes horizontal. I didn't see a clear crack to the left, although it appears that a traverse this way and up is the route. We continued right about 20 feet, with a piece to k... more >>

Comments: This is a fun route to get to the summit. We simulclimbed the rectangular face then went left through the bathtubs to the small tree, rather left, below the summit cap. We continued up, set a anchor below the Upper Lip, climbed it, and went to the top (great views). The left exit for Upper Lip is not entirely clear (see my comment there). The fourth class downclimb to the saddle is a bit tricky, a belay for some would be recommended.

Comments: This is a nice pitch for the grade. One can place a #3 Camalot with a long sling on Hollow Flake prior to the first bolt.

Comments: This is another route with a high first bolt and a less than stellar landing. It is a better stick clip.

Comments: The route to the left has been reworked to include a new anchor. Therefore the route goes to a separate anchor up higher to the right. The fifth bolt is missing (the hole is there). One can either bring a couple pieces of gear and go to either the Repulsion anchor, or to the original anchor (two additional bolts up high), or bail right to the Counter Strike anchor.

Comments: Dave is correct, Misty deserves three Mountain Project stars. Check out the old topo for additional routes on the East Slabs.

The Drift (likely 5.9 rather than a 10) probably should not be climbed unless the old bolts are replaced. There is little protection and the roughly 40 year old 1/4" bolts are necessary.

Comments: The climb is better if one divides the route into two shorter pitches following the left facing dihedral most of the way. It is good to belay below the slot on a good stance. Go up and right to the top of the finger crack, then traverse left (less probable looking) and gain the crack above the slot. Again, the bushes need a trim, they are directly on the route.

Comments: We took two 50 meter nines and the rap on Windward wall was fine if one went to the right. The area hasn't seen much traffic and the cracks have several bushes.

Comments: Nice Photo!

Punch in the Nose, the earlier route, typically went left and closer to King Me for the third pitch and then the same as King Me for roughly half of the last pitch and finished right on the old standard finish. The standard finish, above the sotol, goes up a steep corner and then traverses right to easier ground and off.
