Comments: based on the size of the biner in that photo this doesn't look like a 1/4" bolt. I'd guess it's a standard 3/8" bolt.

Comments: Just as an FYI, all biners on this route have been upgraded to steel (Petzl Steel Djinns and Trango Steel Wiregates).

Comments: @DisturbingThePeace, i'm not saying that the austrialpin biners are not suitable for lowering off since two 10kn biners is more than enough, but compairing a breaking strength to a safe working load is comparing apples to oranges. A safe working load of a quicklink is generally 1/4 or 1/5 of the breaking strength so a 1760 lb swl quicklink actually has an average breaking strength of at least 7040 lbs or ~ 31kN.

Comments: I replaced both chains today so the route is good to go. The comment above about a broken bolt is incorrect. A bolt did break somewhere (I've seen the photos), but it wasn't on this route or any of the other routes on the main 29th street crag wall. All bolts are solid and ready to whip on at the main 29th street crag.

Comments: Awesome Ben, thanks! I thought it felt a bit soft for 5.11c, but that's all i could figure out based on Misty's topo, updating the route info now.

Comments: The problem with stainless bolts is that they will fail due to stress corrosion cracking. The fittings on boats have several things going for them which make them less susceptable to scc, number one is that there generally isn't a constant tensile stress on them like in the case of a bolt, and the second thing is that they generally have very smoothe surfaces on them that are easy to clean and don't trap corrosive ions. A wedge bolt on the other hand is under constant tensile stress and traps c... more >>

Comments: Really? You're in thailand right next to the ocean, and you're using stainless wedge bolts? Have fun rebolting in a year when your bolts start breaking off under the weight of a quickdraw.

Comments: I think DCrane is right, the discription sounds like Disorder. I also didn't see anything like this (or really anything at all worth climbing on the right corner).

Comments: Really fun route, all the moves are great! Jump on this so that it'll clean up and become an Echo classic (is that an oxymoron?).

Comments: Just a little bit of clarification here, The "plated steel" expander cone mentioned on the stainless 5-piece bolts is not plated steel like we normally think of it, it is a zinc plated 303 stainless steel. The reason that the cone is zinc plated is to help allow the sleeve to slide over the cone more easily without the sleeve digging into the cone and keeping it from expanding (triplex bolts occasionally have this issue). Having the cone plated with zinc will not decrease the bolts life due to... more >>

Comments: I'm not sure if I just screwed up the sequence or if some holds have broken off (I didn't see any loose blocks or chalk x's), but the crux of this route felt at least a full grade harder than Corona and harder than either of the other two 5.11c's I've done in the past week.

Comments: Yep, just tried heading right to the last bolt, then up, and it makes it significantly easier, maybe 5.8 or so?

Comments: As I have said, I'm happy to change the name of this area to the correct name. Unfortunately, I don't think the name of this canyon is Missionary Wall since the canyon has walls on both sides of it, and at least two distinct developed areas with the possibility of many more. One of those two developed areas may be called missionary wall, or possibly the entire south side of the canyon (this would end up being pretty confusing once the area sees further development, so I'm hoping this isn't the... more >>

Comments: This is the second route from the right on the wall just east of the campsite. The West Desert guidebook gives it the name of "Remote Control".

Comments: This area really needs to be subdivided so that it makes more sense. I would propose having the following sub sections: Campsite East, Campsite West, Hermit Shack Wall, and Nobody's Darlings Wall. These are all seperate walls and it would be much easier to figure out where things are if it were subdivided.
