Comments: Every area is different, if you tried to normalize grades globally it might be 12c. When you look at the other routes on the Cube though and then expand that to the rest of Bozeman this fits nicely at 12a.

Sandbagging is just ingrained in the culture here unlike say Ten Sleep or Joe's Valley where everyone agrees the grades are a little soft.

Comments: There was a hold up and right of the start that was ticked which made it easier... Tony broke it.

Comments: Just curious, does this route stay on the left side of the prow the whole way, or does it escape left onto the face and finish at the Robin anchors?

Comments: The project was bolted by Mike Williams this summer. He recently put up a post on his blog describing it, but I don't think he's sent just yet... Mikes Iron Clad Beta

Comments: I tried this route the other day for the first time and at the "redpoint crux" I didn't like the feel of the pocket so I used a crimp lower down and to the right a little that got rid of the long reach to the pocket but made the next move a long lock-off. Does anyone else use this or have ever tried it that way?

Comments: The crimp pictured under the right elbow of the climber in Jason's picture is now no more. It broke as of 11/23/10. The problem still goes at the same grade but is slightly more awkward and possibly more reachy for short climbers now.

Comments: No, this isn't the same cliff that E-Man climbs at. From what lee told me its part of the same band of rock as that cliff though. When I spoke to E-Man last he was still keeping it quiet. Jay, you can send Lee or me a message and we can point you in the right direction if you need a refresher.

Comments: I liked the laughing cause of the block falling, Nice job on the send!

By the way, do you know where Losing Your Life and Living Through It (12c) is? Its in the new rock and ice, the picture looks cool but I can't place what cliff its at...

Comments: Has anyone gotten on that recently? I remember I broke off one of the start holds (it exfoliated in my hand) trying it this fall, hard but kinda fun in a fall half-way down the hill sorta way.

Comments: Yes its on the same boulder, if you are facing Classic Crack then your back should be facing Ride The Lightning.

Comments: For the stand start there are two dead horizontal crimps that are right next to each other that are just to the left of the corner, if memory serves me right. They will probably be chalked unless it just rained.

Comments: I think there are several elevens around, but I don't know if there are any twelves or not. Mike, you might be able to ask Lauren if the YMCA still has a guidebook or not.
