Comments: Caution!!! We climbed this yesterday. Rapped it by the new direct route with 2x70m. The second rap ended 30 ft. Short! Recommend rapping via the Carter Classic rap route until we get clarification on the new rap route from the FA party.

Comments: We doubled up all the pitches (i.e. belayed at every other anchor) for a total of 6 pitches.

Very fun route. It will be better when it is climbed more to remove sand/lichen, etc.

A few comments;

- P3 felt like 5.6.
- P5 felt like 5.9 start and 5.8 OW, since you don't really climb it like an OW.
- P7 felt like the crux pitch at 5.10a for a few moves.
- If you double up pitches, take 14 draws.
- Rap the route. It's either 2 raps on double 60s or 4 raps on a single 70m.

- Captain America: swapped anchors - (1) Mussy w/o gate is now Mussy w/ gate replaced the first and third bolts. New hanger on the second. First bolt moved slightly left to be more in line with the crux start.

Comments: The route has cleaned up, but the Guano traverse is still nasty. The second bolt has been tightened.

Comments: Be careful pulling on the flakes 15' above the belay. Some are very loose and need to be trundled! I'll try and get that done once the weather improves....

Comments: This photo is actually the unnamed 5.11a. Ego Buster follows the thin crack/seam to the left past 3 bolts.

Comments: Todd. The start is the same as the unnamed 5 bolt 5.11 to the right.
Climb the runout face directly below the 5.11 bolt line.

Most people TR both routes.

A new bolt would be frowned upon since this route has been climbed without it forever!

Comments: Can be climbed in 3 pitches with bolted anchors/rings at each belay. The first 2 pitches are fun. The third starts with a 5.7 bulge/crack and ends loose and very easy.
