Comments: Super impressed in the style of this line. Kudos to the FA party. Five star route. 70 meter works. Definitely bring a small rack of cams for the final pitch.

Comments: Thanks for the anchor.

I placed a #0.4 Camalot and a red Alien at the top section and felt good to have those pieces.

Comments: Excellent route, didn't have a topo and just went off the beta here, which worked just fine. Lots of #3 camalots on the third pitch, we had 3 and 4 might be nce. It's true you can ditch some gear for the last pitch just be sure to save a few hand sized pieces for the belay on the summit. Mad props to the first ascentionists and how they bolted that last pitch. A job well done, and a desert classic for sure.

First pitch was in the sun at 11:45 a.m. on January 26th.

Comments: Was up at Golf today, and the Black Nasty stool was smashed to pieces. We ended up hauling the remnants of trash down. Anyone know what's up with someone trashing this thing? I've never tried this route but watched many strong climbers get on it, all with the help of the stool.

Comments: Def. plenty of chimney action on this one, I was happy to have an old 4.5 camalot with me (equivalent to modern #5 camalot).

Old school 1960s Jim Bridwell route! proud line done way before cams. props.

Comments: It looks like all the first bolts that have fixed draws are going to be upgraded to have steel biners, which should solve the issue of people having to frequently replace these with their own aluminum biners. Dave and Lauren Heerschap have been installing these. These two dedicate a serious amount of love and time to keeping the hardware at the Golf Wall safe. We were able to purchase these biners from the Rock Lounge and recently raised $200 for the purchase from a slideshow held there. Thanks ... more >>

Comments: Linda: Thanks for the kind words, it means a lot! I do have a novel in the works, which will be about mountain folks, dirtbags, and rock climbing. Not exactly sure how long it will take, but hopefully I'll have it out within the next two years.

Tim: word!

peace,
Luke

Comments: I added two bolts to the last section of this climb today. It was the only route on the wall that required gear placements, and there was a guy a while back who fell close to the top, and almost decked. So even though the gear is good up there, I made the decision to add a couple bolts, so that someone doesn't mistakenly get on it without gear and hurt themselves.

Comments: Thanks guys. Marcus, we'll def. meet up sometime soon.

D.E.W: glad you liked it. Have you read the climbing zine at all? If not, check that out it's very similar writing, but all climbing-related.

peace,
Luke

Comments: Nice, Will! We cleaned it up a bunch this summer. How did you end up getting off it? We built an anchor around a big boulder at the top to rap off. Peace bro, Luke.
