Comments: Anyone ever traverse out right from the top of the 3rd pitch out to a bolted arete? Is this on another route? Maybe requiem for a tadpole? Seemed to make the route a bit more consistent with rock quality and difficulty.

Comments: Alex, I found that was the case when I did It last week. It seemed reasonable to climb the squeeze chimney on the right, and then step out left into that crack. Still probably 5.8

Comments: Im not 100% sure, but I think that block to the right of the cam pictured, has fallen off forcing you into a squeeze chimney on the right.

Comments: This route follows the hand size crack then left up the discontinuous finger crack until you top out on small holds to the right. It is fairly well protected to lead except maybe the topout. The bolt hole out right is for one of the face climbs to the right.

Comments: Followed this today. The jug moving out of the squeeze just above the second roof is covered in bird poop. Copius amounts of poop. Sooo much poop. You will be breathing it and wearing it. Bring a powerwasher, or a mask.

Comments: This is definitely face to face. I have a similar picture, only with more gear, and I'm hanging on with 2 hands... I'm more of a wuss.

Comments: What does the crux crack on the third pitch look like? I ended up going through this notch on a finger sized layback crack/flake. Didnt exactly feel like 10b at the gunks. Was I off route? Anyone have pics?

Comments: On the second pitch after the piton I went up to the roof and traversed left pulling through a 3" crack in the roof. Was burly and felt harder than 5.8 . Was I off route? I was told this was the original finish?

Comments: I climbed this last week with 2 relatively new seconds, To protect the traverse I lead with 2 single ropes as if they were doubles. When the first second completed the traverse I had them reclip the other rope to the 2nd bolt after the traverse. Youll take a bit of a swing if you fall but wont fall over the roof
