Comments: I agree on the 10+. One rope will get you down the regular route if you scramble to the 2nd anchor and take the 2nd rap skier's R.(which is not the way the slings were oriented). Then its an easy walk around the tower to your packs. Rapping skier's L. there would require 2 ropes and a longer return journey to the base of the route. The route had some fun climbing, but also some poor rock, worth doing once. We used a #4 Camalot to anchor the belayer at the base of the route.

Comments: Tony, I agree about the rock in that corner. The route climbs the seam/double seam to the left. Sorry if the above description didn't make that clear.

Comments: The 5.10 rating is a guess. It felt hard, but it was snowing and blowing like Crazy during the FA, and my feet were wooden.
Edit to add: After climbing it again in better weather, I'm giving it 5.11b.

Comments: Excellent but desperate with the algae/seaweed in the crux tips section. Felt harder than other 5.11's on this trip such as the Rostrum. My experience linking the final 2 pitches would lead me to break them up next time.

Comments: Good work Steve and Greg. Really nice climbing. I guess I shouldn't have waited 3 years to get back to lead this, although it would have been a headpoint for me, the onsight is prouder. I was going to call it El Nino and blame the delay on parenthood.
FYI, I gardened a bunch of mud out of the perfect cam (green Alien, I recall) placement right after the crux. It felt 11a to me, but I'm not too strong.
Steve, let's get out and do some book research, I have another line to show you.

Comments: Just a different take on the protection and rope drag issues described above, YMMV.
I did not place any micronuts, used only about 2 sets of small cams and 14 slings (3 double shoulder and the rest shoulder length, no quickdraws). I did backclean a couple pieces to reduce rope drag. I felt the route was basically "sewn up" with this amount of gear. I carried a single set of Camalots of the green, red, gold sizes. I did use most of my mid to larger nuts. I climbed on a single line and had very li... more >>

Comments: I placed a #4 Bigbro on the 2nd and 3rd pitches, it was nice to have.
Not sure if a #3 would work. Also, the new #6 Camalot was soooopa!
Seemed like a better size for this than the old #5. I had 1 of each.
I agree with the 5.10d rating. You have to want it, but it is not technically that difficult.

PS- I vote for removing the old bolts. Or at least the 1st one on the crux pitch with that old ?? hanger. It appears ready to slice a falling climber to ribbons as you sli... more >>
