Comments: Thanks for the climbing lesson Nate. I guess we just better get rid of all ratings then, because all of them are relatively subjective and probably based on the finger size, strength, ape index, body proportions, height and weight of the climbers who establish some sort of consensus.

My crack climber comment had more to do with the line about P3 being the "business". P3 is a lovely steep, mostly stemming pitch with a little bit of awkward at the top. I cite the fact that there are many comments... more >>

Comments: I don't mean to be harsh, but F - that.

Comments: The Classic route ends atop the Flying Buttress. You can scramble/downclimb from the top down to a ledge below the south side to link up with the Coke Bottle rappel route (this is tricky - be careful). The first rappel anchor is found on a large boulder above the Flying Buttress on top of the wall where Beaver Cleaver and High Exposure Exit top out. That first rappel is a long one (longer than most 60m ropes) so plan carefully.

Falcon bans are currently in place until approx. July 15th, 2013.
