Comments: uh? You mean that the fat bolts are not safe for direct contact with the rope (without leaver bins) right? When we did the multiple routes we set single fixed ropes to lockers on the hangers.

Comments: Funny, that's what I was considering as a way to get up the cliff. Vince was more cautious and found a way to walk up to the top by the back side. This part of the cliff is indeed barely staying together, but there is a lot of good rock in places both right and left of it.

Comments: Cool, got it... I think I know exactly which one is your route. I will like to get all this sorted out in the following weeks and keep updating this page as we get more info. I'll try to contact Todd. I think this crag deserves some more attention. Let's see how many sportos are not too lazy to do a bit of hiking.

BTW, do you know if any of the cracks have been climbed? I saw a few lines that can go as mixed moderates or intermediates.

It will be great if you come. I'll rig a big tarp for shad... more >>

Comments: Haha... good to know jbak. The rock does look great and solid in that area, but we need to start getting on it to tell for sure. Vince and I do have a knack for finding very choosy lines. Is your 3-pitch route the one that goes up a small roof?

Comments: That flake was both pried with a crowbar to check that it was solid and then reinforced with glue in a crack on the right side. It ain't going nowhere dudes!

I is a bit spooky because it sounds hollow, but the back side of it is very wide and solid. Maaaaybe if some freak comes and start pulling out like a mofo on the right side, the crack could possibly start expanding more and more damaging the robustness of the feature. Well, don't do it and live with it. Rock climbing requires learning to ... more >>

Comments: Did this clean (no bolts clipped) . Two pieces at the top are less than ideal, but everything is bomber under that, so I think a fall from the last few moves would be big but save.

Comments: Nick found a new secret beta. I tried it, and it makes the slab move easier than the lower roof part. In this way, the route is .11- maximum.

Comments: The anchor biners were stolen from this route. We had to add new ones a couple of weeks ago. Clearly the person who did it downclimbed or topped out, either way seems a lot of work to booty two old biners... what is up with that?
This is an annoyance for climbers since the anchors have no chains. Please respect the climbing area and honor the fixed gear, it is left there for your own convenience.

Comments: well, well, good! I wondered about the FA for a long time.
I had seen the second pitch and I have to admit that it gives me the willies...
I did try the line that splits to the right after the first crux, a broken crack that supposedly goes at mid .12, and which I thought was the first pitch for the upper corner... it was hard to climb, very dirty and will be tricky to protect (I was only trying the moves on TR from the Judge anchor).
Does anybody know anything about this variation?

Comments: I went left instead of right on the last pitch, basically following chalked holds... so I ended up doing an overhanging corner that felt like a 5.10c R with really bad gear... does anybody know anything about this variation?

Comments: I second Geir's comment... the lower angle of this rock make it easy to find any number of ways to climb it... just dump a bunch of steel, pretty much at random, and some friction route will come out. I think the classic routes (say, mostly the ones that actually have names) are great and somewhat preserve the adventure character of the Stronghold, they are mixed and pretty natural lines. Now, by the precedent set by The Peacemaker, the new lines may be great fun (haven't climb them), but the ... more >>

Comments: Scott has done 5 routes running down the descent, which is a very impressive record... We opted for the fixed line 'soft' style basically to save our knees and time to do more pitches. We were moving somewhat fast and steady, but not really rushing up to our limit. If the interest is only speed, there is a lot of room for improvement... In any case, yeah, agree, Sheepshead is an awesome playground for this kind of stuff... the big 8 is totally feasible...

Comments: ... no simul-climbing at all, and actually, that is one of the main things we can do to make it faster. But I feel that I need to be a bit more familiar with the routes to do this.

Comments: In the past November 1st Nick Erhardt and I completed 6 climbs in a day: The Peacemaker, Absinthe of Mallet, Ides of Middlemarch, The Climb Too Tough to Die, Right of Stampede and Ewephoria, making 36 pitches... We did use a fixed line to rap down and it was great fun... I dare to say that at 8 climbs could be done with enough motivation and foot pain tolerance, but as it is for now, I think this is the current record of number of pitches in a day for this crag.
