Comments: I checked this thing out yesterday. Seemed doable but quite hard...
in the beginning, at the second bolt I traversed left on hard crimps... Did a few layback moves to a killer jug to make the 3rd clip... I was actually able to get a good (partially no-hand) rest here... Technical moves got me to the "impossible" move. I think with the correct balance i could make it happen, I'm nursing a bad finger right now and couldn't really bear down for the move... Left hand smooth arÍte right hand micro cr... more >>

Comments: Indeed Mark :)

As for the arete, I've looked at it, seems doable but hard. It's a question of style. For one reason or another I feel like it would be a fitting top rope problem. There is a single bolt above the arete that might make a good directional. Not sure if I'd like to see it bolted. I will eventually have a closer look at it.

Comments: It felt that way to me at first as well... it is a little tricky and quite powerful in the crux (at least the way I did it) then it eases up quite a bit... If you play on it a bit and think outside the box it might just come to you... at 6'2" i didn't think I'd get the kneebar but with some trickery i managed to get it, though it never felt perfect, it worked... best of luck! its worth the work!

Comments: When I was a bit younger I fell off with both arms over the top... couldn't find the good hold and just slid off... My spotters were of little use from that height... they basically spanked me on the way down as I crash landed on to my single pad... yeah, I recommend not falling from up there haha

Comments: I had never imagined that the current bolts were the originals, I know the kind of gear you all were using back then. As the story was told, they were left that way because that was the original placement... Thank you for debunking this myth! Now... if that old story is BS then will someone please put that anchor in a better place haha...

Comments: As I remember it, yes, you place a solid piece or 2 and pull a boulder problem that's in the v4 range... It has been a long time but i remember some contortion and funky footwork... I should re visit this one sometime...

Comments: Thanks all for your congrats.
Extra thanks to you Tom for your approval, I was hoping to run in to you out there and chat with you about it since you are "the man" out there. It is important for me to not step on the toes of my elders. I just tried my best to do it in good style.
I have the utmost reverence for this climb.

Comments: Really fun climb! I found all of the pitches to feel about the same difficulty and also found that they get more and more fun as you go :)

Comments: I heard lore that the belay was put low to hide them from view since the FA party didn't have time to do the second pitch on their first push and didn't want others to get and ideas...

Comments: could have been just a regular draw, i just remember something easy to clip... I don't mind that top out either but it would be a lot harder if i didn't utilize a hand jam ;)

Comments: do put it off for a while... there are so many better routes at the grade... however if you clip the last bolt as a directional its pretty safe and easy to work and clean...
