Comments: I did this in 2010, and chickened out on my lead of the 4th pitch and just did the 4th class version. Loucks' guide gives this version (the 4th class walk up and downclimbing to the anchor) of RoTE a 5.7. I led the slab finish (finally) on 8/15/2015, and managed to get it. The Loucks' guide calls the slab a 5.8+ variation, does everyone disagree with their 5.8+ rating? I'm not going to. The slab seems about as hard as "Out of the Darkness", but the best piece of pro is a nut far left of the slab... more >>

Comments: Seems like there are a ton of different variations for the "second" pitch of this climb. I made the mistake of going up past the chimney (instead of left to the cave), and ended up with a traverse that made me envious of the easier looking traverse to the cave. The new bolt on the third pitch was definitely appreciated. This was my first time on the upper half of the route. I can't imagine leading that traverse with that rusty bolt. The rappel off of the very top was definitely adventurous, i.e.... more >>

Comments: I can second Robin's comment. I liked it so much, that while cleaning for Robin on this pitch that I left his #3 C4 in the crack and made him lower me so I could go climb it again...I mean go get his cam.

Comments: This is a great route to practice slab. It seems different every time I've got on it, and I've only finished it without falling once (out of 4 tries). Have fun on the bottom section, because if you're not comfortable on slab the upper section will get your adrenaline going.

Comments: Robin and I went to Coxcomb yesterday (4/25). We parked on the CCC side of the pump house (there's kind of a worn down parking spot just before the gate), and while we were climbing, a security guard put a note (on a napkin) on my windshield saying, "No parking in this Area. Next time you[sic] vehicle will be towed Away At your expense!! 4/25/15". Anyone know what that's about? There are no signs saying "no parking anywhere, and the pump house just has general warnings to stay out of the fence.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route. Tried it for the first time last weekend, and the slab was thought provoking, and the transition from the top of the slab, over the arete and on to the main face was super fun.

Comments: The headwall is not at all obvious (and definitely harder than Lonesome Dove). I couldn't figure it out, so I went right and used the crack.

edit: I went back and found a few pretty big crimps just left of the crack on the right that made it better. I'd still say a bit harder than lonesome dove. Fun route, and the move from pussy whipped to the tiger by the tail face isn't that difficult, but it is exciting.

Comments: I just climbed it yesterday (11/24/2014), and the hangers looked fine to me too. Right anchor looks almost brand new, and the left anchor wasn't sharp and only seemed slightly worn as Jason said (I definitely had no problem trusting it).

Comments: I had fun on the "new" p3, but I was very glad to have double ropes. Going straight up you have good pro until you get to a wide(ish) ledge you can traverse with no pro (but very comfortable) until you get to the left facing dihedral. Without double ropes, I can only imagine protecting yourself on the left, then going to the right again and then going back left to get to the right facing dihedral would cause a good amount of rope drag...especially since it was a pretty long pitch.

Comments: I wonder what the 5.9 move is. I quit after hanging on the chockstone that Chuck is standing on in the picture for too long. That move to get on top of it seemed pretty powerful, and the thin crack above it looked too hard for me that day.

Comments: The move straight up from the belay (into that offwidth) and then right to get on to the face seemed much harder than anything on Miss Piggy, or Second Coming (the 5.8 var). I must have been doing it weird. The pro was alright, but it was all small pro (a few nuts and red master in a horizontal) until you can stick a couple bigger cams (c4 #2 and maybe a #1) after you get past the roof. Fun climb though.

Comments: I used the kneebar rest and also found a handjam up a bit higher in a constriction at the bottom of one of the big jugs. Both were awesome, and I was happy I took them when I was working past the last bolt.

Comments: If it weren't for this picture, I would have never found the entrance. we spent an hour walking back and forth trying to figure out how to get back in, and finally looked back and saw the rock with the water on it that's in the background. Thanks!

Comments: Climbed this in late December. Led the first 5.3 pitch with a rope (essentially just free-solo, so my follower didn't have to free-solo it). Dragging the rope plus having misc. things on my harness made some of the chimneying more difficult than it should have been. Tried using the rope to protect the follower in the final Chimney where the bolts are supposed to be, and only found one bolt (I might just not have been in the right spot for the others). The one bolt I did find was near the exi... more >>
