Comments: All trad pro, continuously sustained climbing, solid 5.12+. This route has deservedly become an Eldo benchmark over the years and opened the door for many climbers to the more difficult 5.13 lines to its left (Freeline, Frayed line, Surfs Up). I'd call it a new classic and the best 5.12 trad pitch in the state; would anyone nominate a better one?

Comments: i got a chance to try D1 this last summer, in the middle of august 04, with my friend luke parady. i found the route to be more "historic" than "classic". the whole middle section of the route was a wide loose trough, with pebbles constantly exfoliating from the decomposing granite and, at times, large chunks of rock pulling off...belayers beware. the crux pitch, however, stands alone as the best quality rock, and pitch, of the route. the location is stunning (the upper tip of the diamond, d... more >>

Comments: Finally decided to give this thing a whirl today, and what a stellar line. The first two pitches as one was definitely the way to go. the third pitch, although not so hard once you've seen the holds, is hard to see/read from the belay and committing to the moves on slick/blind feet will get you crimping hard. Not as scary as I was expecting, but still has some spice! I was able to carry a light rack on this one, which helps on the steep stuff (single set from black Alien to #3 Camalot,... more >>

Comments: i've been labeled a sandbagger before, and i too find this climb to be solid 11c (for sure if one onsights). Stellar positioning, tricky clips, fun alternative when the upper canyon is crowded.

Comments: Yo, I onsighted and still haven't redpointed Sargasso Sea! I thought the trick was to press hard with the feet, full on power laybacking. Any recommendations for Sargasso?

Comments: Sorry everybody, but I broke off a hold in the crux section going for the onsight a couple months ago. The hold was on the blank section of rock when you exit the crack out right to the final crux face moves. The route still goes though, and the grade remains the same. Sorry!

Comments: I also did not see any fixed pins on the route. I placed the cam, clipped the two bolts, and then finished at the backtalk anchors at 80ft. From there i climbed up to where the topo showed a fixed pin and two bolts and found nothing! running it out to the original anchors (assuming they are still there) could result in a 100ft ground fall with this fixed gear missing, so be careful.

Comments: I just did this route yesterday and will say that it is one of the best multipitch sport climbs i've ever been on! Pitches 1 and 2 are both solid 12a, especially for the onsight,and pitch 3 is more steep slab with a couple tricky moves (watch out for the loose flake just above bolt #1 on pitch 3, if it came off it would fall right on top of your belayer). Pitch 4 (10b) is nothing to get excited about, but it does make for an airy ending to such a fabulous climb. Three raps straight down... more >>

Comments: Rossiter gives this line a rating of 12a, but I agree that it is probably harder (5.12b). The opening moves are very crimpy, just keep working the feet up. Although the climbing eases up after clipping the third bolt, there is still no rest until the fourth bolt, and then its sustained balancy moves through the shallow corner. Beware, its a good ways run out on hard reachy moves after the sixth bolt, but once you gain the ledge at bolt 7 its only 5.10 to the anchors. A stellar line, well wor... more >>

Comments: Well worth the hike!! This line is steep and sustained, with only marginal rests along the way. I found the lower portion ate meduim and small sized nuts, while the moves along the base of the roof up through the double overhangs inhaled Camalots from #1-#3 (bring 2 #2). The final crux would not be difficult on its own but becomes quite strenuous after the sustained climbing before hand. George, I too enjoyed a no hands rest when I inched my ass up onto the jug on the left ... more >>

Comments: I found this line to be quite fun, but a little soft for the grade, more like 5.10+. Although the first pitch is the hardest of the three, I found the second pitch to be most rewarding because the line was more aesthetic and straightforward. I don't feel anything other than quickdraws is necessary, all the moves that are at all difficult are well protected with bolts.

Comments: Linking this route with the last pitch of March of Dimes is great, and it makes the descent much easier. Even though pitch two was short, I found myself placing more gear than I usually would only because the ramp on which the belayer sits angles up right quite steeply. Resultingly, in the the event of a fall, hitting this ledge is quite likely if the leader has run it out at all. 9+ is a good grade for this pitch, but the 10c March of Dimes pitch is a bit overgraded (more like a/b) especiall... more >>

Comments: Congrats on the whipper! I found that as i neared the top of the crack it dissipated a bit through a small bulge.here i stepped about five feet right (5.9) into a ramp-like right facing corner which lead right up to the belay. From there i went to the dead tree, and then straight up the face to the top (in two short pitches).
