Comments: Personally I can't consider this grade IV even with the hike... ~1 hour from car to crag, 5 hours to the summit and back to the bags, and ~1.5 hours back to the car. We moved at a relaxed pace the whole time making for what I would consider an "average" speed.

Depending on skill level, experience, and cojones the most supplemental gear I would bring would be a single run of cams 0.3 to 0.75 and a run of stoppers. More experienced and bold climbers could get away without any extra gear, but pitc... more >>

Comments: Nothing against Bill, but more likely he couldn't tell the difference. He gave "Songline" 12.b/c and "Inferno" 5.12+ a similar grade, but those two both held their grade. Bill was far ahead of his time in the area; only putting in a couple of attempts before moving on to a new route, send or not.

Comments: FA Bill Dockins and Kristen Drumheller, July 1991. Originally given 5.12c! Now considered one of the first 5.13s in Bozeman.

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: 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...
