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: 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 >>

Comments: At least one bolt on Morning Sickness needs replacing. The second bolt hanger is for some reason flattened against the rock.

Comments: This route would probably be a challenge for a 5.6 climber, the route finding and gear between the P1 roof (at the pins) and the corner belay was difficult. I ended up stepping down a few moves to get my hands in the large crack, traversing under the slab to gain a block close to the corner, then went up the middle of the slab.

The P1 roof was IMO, the technical crux, and the corner above the belay would be a messy area to fall, though was pretty straight-forward jugs and stemming.

Comments: it's slabbed in enough at the bottom that the rope usually ends up in a pile on the rock/dirt, not in the reservoir. We've done a number of the climbs over there and never had it end up in the water.

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.
