Cave finish. Very fun.  <br /> <br />Note: the start of this pitch is normally a little to the left on juggy holds with better pro.

Comments: Did this recently finishing out left on the Hawkeye roof. It's a little burly but does not increase the difficulty much (5.8+ or maybe 5.9) and adds a fun traverse and roof move that is well protected with a 3 or ideally a 4 c4. I see no reason not to finish this way as you get almost all the best parts of Three Doves with some added fun. You do need to build a gear anchor or walk up quite far to a tree.

Comments: Very fun route. Felt like a soft unsustained six with solid pro all the way.

I linked Redrum and Sword with minimal drag though did not place much on the easy traverse getting to the base of Sword.

Comments: My wife and I did this at a steady but reasonably slow pace this weekend from the South Meadows, which adds about one mile round trip compared to leaving from the Loj. It took us about 9.5 hours round trip. I can't see doing it in much less than 7.5-8 hours without really hurrying.

I thought it was a fantastic hike though would be very heady and potentially dangerous for a non-climber. The waterfall was pretty easy even with hiking boots as long as you pay attention for the occasional bit of lo... more >>

Comments: Very nice worthwhile climb! Some lichen and loose rock but pro below the notch is solid.

Comments: Thought this was a really fun route that stayed pretty dry even when the rest of the wall was soaked. There is a healthy distance between the last bolt and the chains, though looks like a clean fall. After initially backing off the tricky/balancy last move and hanging on the last bolt, I figured out different much easier beta.

Comments: Climbed this for the first time Saturday. Accidentally started the second pitch about 20 feet to the left of what I think was the short corner where you are supposed to start. I climbed up about 15 feet and then made a long traverse with almost no pro. Small feet and small but passable hands. Had one move that felt about 5.5/5.6 before getting to Hawk proper and definitely would have resulted in a ledge fall. Had there been pro it would have improved an already awesome pitch. DO NOT FOLLOW MY CH... more >>

Comments: Did the walk off yesterday using the map Jim posted. Was indeed quite easy. We made it to the car in 30 minutes at a modest pace. Fixed line appeared to be in fine shape and was easy to descend.

Chimney variation is very worthwhile and protects well with a #3.

Comments: Pro is good. You can place solid cams under the roof and after pulling around the roof from a good if slightly awkward stance before scooting up.

Comments: Great climb. Obviously G, and easy to place gear at the crux, but was pretty pumpy placing gear in the last twenty feet or so.

Comments: Nice underrated climb. Definitely runout on second pitch but probably no harder than 5.5.

Comments: Second pitch is pretty heady for 5.7 at the crux between the two rusty pins followed by pretty pumpy and very fun jugs. Very underrated climb.

Comments: I approached the P3 overhang from the left side by the Bombs Away P3 start this time. Felt easier, 5.5 or so, and was a bit easier to place pro higher up while holding huge jugs, though still not the most comfortable stance.

Comments: I wish I had read these comments before doing the third pitch. Very scary crux move that could easily result in decking if you blow it. Next time I will see if it's possible to get a tiny piece higher up before committing to the roof, which is pretty tricky and has no gear. I somehow envisioned this as one of those roofs where you reach up high and grab easy jugs, but in fact you have to make a few interesting moves first.

Comments: Definitely worth doing the first pitch on a crowded day. Agree with other comments on the bolt and pin, which effectively make this a potentially dangerous route. I put a small micronut a couple feet below and to the left of the pin.

Comments: Crux is pretty weird the first time but gear is good. Runout in middle section not too enjoyable but the second pitch was really nice. Worth doing but not as classic as some of the other routes on this wall.

Comments: Very fun route with good exposure and length. Could use another couple bolts, but should be safe with a careful belayer. I think a solid 5.8 leader would be fine on this as there is really only one 5.8 move between the second and third bolts. Top overhang move is fun too.

Sadly the weather got really bad as I was leading it and we couldn't do Clast Action to the right, which also looks great.

Comments: I definitely missed the supposedly great nut placement in the V. Would have been nice but you can definitely get pretty securely wedged in there. Fun climb.

Comments: #4 for the start of the offwidth felt like a key placement to prevent it from being pretty runout. Initial chimney was really awkward for me. Definitely a tough lead for 5.5. Second pitch is airy and worth doing. Probably about 5.3. Probably could link the pitches up if careful.

Comments: Great climb! Initial traverse start felt 5.6 if you find the right handholds (i.e. not the undercling). Otherwise easily harder.

A #4 would definitely be nice for the start of the offwidth. I tried getting my whole body in the offwidth and found it very uncomfortable.

Thought the pro on the final pitch was a little sparse at times, though it was getting late in the day, so maybe I just wasn't looking carefully enough. There are a few pins to clip.
