First pitch of Inferno, as best i could figure out.  Follow the line of the rope to the right then back left.  Route finding was a bit difficult.

It's a butt shot, but it shows the line of the first pitch of Alphonse pretty well.  From here, i traversed left to a stance and did a hanging belay because all the gear was knee-height.

Looking down the arch on Standard Route from "the mailbox".  If you've got a 60m and you're coming up the arch and not the quartz pocket variation, do a semi-hanging belay here, you won't reach the thread-belay.  70m rope might make it.

Ryan leading the top of Triumvirate in the rain.  Belayed in the corner, but an easier belay is closer to the start of the traverse.

Comments: Added some topo lines to clarify as there is some mild misinformation floating around on this route:

Yellow - first pitch with starting options. Crux is in the middle where the vertical crack momentarily steepens. Bolted belay.

Red - Second pitch - Up the easy (5.1?) face above, with gear in the corner or horizontals when you want it. Bolted Belay.

Magenta - Single Rope Rappel Route - You need to push hard to the right to get to the ledge on the first rappel. Do not let go of the ropes wh... more >>

Comments: Gordon - thats the trade-off i suppose. The original belay for doing this in 3 pitches will give you a little less rope drag, but its on an uncomfortable slab. I think its only 30 or 40 feet above the decent belay ledge, just below an alcove / crux that is passed on the left.

Comments: Hey, Gordon - At some point on P2 (I think it's at a big horizontal weakness) there's a spot where you can move left into the gully - which is easier, but as you noticed, not very noteworthy; or you can continue up / slightly right - which is more exciting and exposed, but might up the grade a little.

Comments: Great route - One of the best I've been on at the Gap.

Some additional info - Start in the same spot as you would for corkscrew. First pitch goes direct to the Juniper at 5.5 pg. Possible belays at the juniper or any of the small ledges up to 20' above it if you want to be closer to the crux.

2nd pitch goes up pretty easily to the roof, where some commitment, good hand jams, and small edges for your feet will get you past. Possible belay just after the roof to prevent rope drag. If you con... more >>
