Comments: The V2 in the guide climbs a line maybe 2 feet to the left of the line shown. I don't know if they're intended to be the same route. The V2 version stems the shallow depression in the face and moves up small holds to grab the arete on the left before topping out.

Comments: From the next picture in the series - " In the past, he slung the point instead of using a cam, but after watching the sling lift off the point in the middle of the crux, I suggested using a cam instead...."

Comments: The last of the 3 sections of that red line is probably a little off from the official route. I went wide right before coming back left and topping out, whereas the route line in the book shows pulling a small roof (obvious crack) right by where the 3rd part of the line starts, then moving right and toping out.

Comments: 10b if you use the arete on the left. Apparently 10d if you stay more right and go up the blank looking face.

Comments: I installed a hanger on the stud at the bottom, the stud isn't that great though...

Relatively straight forward route for the first 5 or 6 or so bolts. There is a distinct crux after you reach the bore-hole, it's very difficult to keep your feet from skating off. The is a bolt very nearby as you do the crux, a little below your waist.

Comments: I thought this route was quite good. There are good hands and moves around the bulge, with good feet if you can see them/feel for them (or just get a really high foot), then very thoughtful / technical moves up the slab up top. I found the the crux to be everything from the second to last bolt to the anchor.

Comments: Most climb the face, from the bottom left corner of this photo straight to the bolts at the top.

Comments: No need for the big zig-zag jog go straight up from the top of the low dihedral to the bolts. Alternatively, start on the raised platform to the left and merge into the route a little above the dihedral.

Comments: Jonah - If you go up the face on P2, it's 5.easy (it's so leaned in it can be done without putting your hands on the rock) but the gear is more sparse. Sounds like the gear in the corner pulled you in.

Comments: if you rap climbers left off the ledge with the bolts, you'll make it with a 60 to the raised platform above the trail... at least my 60 makes in no problem. If you rap up the way you climbed, you'll probably run out of rope and risk a bad swing. It's definitely not a good rap line, but I do like being able to get down w/o carrying a second rope.

Comments: You can do some variations around this to change the grade a bit. The roof can be pulled at a crack on the right, and you can continue up to the arÍte a few different ways. Straight up looked grungy and poorer rock.

Comments: a 70m rope will get you down just fine. Rap towards Tears are Falling.

Comments: The guidebook says to approach up the left side of the gully system on the climb "Hidden passage" It is likely very very overgrown. You can start up Wine Couloir,the slab on the right side of the gully, an traverse left across the gully at an obvious spot with some trees. The last 10 feet of the approach are dangerously loose.

Comments: The mid-wall rap anchor is missing, bring some webbing and a rap ring. The nut and birch tree are still there.

Comments: I was confused by the "black C3" comment too. I figured the C3 part was wrong, not the color.

Comments: Cleaned this route today while climbing it. The safari i mentioned above on P2 is taken care of, no more bush in your face every 8 feet, and no battle with a little birch tree and pricker bush at the crux. P1 had a bunch of grass and dirt removed, revealing a number of giant bucket holds. I was cleaning while going up though, so a good rain might be needed to get the dirt I was raining down cleaned up.

Comments: Easy to lead this in one pitch if you head straight up on P2 and avoid the corner. Gear is PG, bring a couple pink and red tricams.

Comments: Repeated this route again and with spring hitting it's becoming a safari on p2. With some gardening to remove the vegetation this would be a very good climb.

Comments: Triumverate follows the central weakness. Tannamund takes a direct line to the small cedar on the left side of the wall. Shadow line follows the very left edge. The top of the rib is visable, but starts around a large platform further right. The black wall is around the arete from shadow line.

Comments: A single 70 m rope gets you down this in two raps. From the med anchors, rap climbers left to land on the raised platform above triumverate. A 60m will probably get you within a couple feet of the ledge if you're careful.
