Comments: Great route. Never climbed a trad route that had this type of gymnastic moves. Threw this thing will all trad gear even though the bolt looked tempting. Great climbing. Loved this thing but I enjoy steep sport climbing.

Comments: Led this and wasn't too impressed. The local climbing shop dude even said it was his favorite and to do it before i left j tree. Maybe i wasn't too impressed because it was 85 degrees out, and hand jams were not too impressive. I will say the 10b variation at the roof was fun. I cannot comment on the original 5.9 route since i never did it that way but, the other two in my party said the original 5.9 was fun.

Comments: I looked for this problem for three days on and off while visiting the area. I even bought the guide book for climbing in Marquette. I even had two locals (who were not climbers) read the description and they couldn't find it either. Where the hell is this thing?

Comments: Looked for this all weekend when I was there. Guess locals need to keep there secrets to themselves.

Comments: Did this the other day. Classic crack. Someone slung the boulder at the top with a rope for an easy way to anchor. Left some blood on the wall halfway up. Also you can TR it with 70 with easy with plenty of rope left over.

Comments: Route still shedding up high at the crimps. Felt in the low 12 range since a bunch has shed off.

Comments: Positive hold shed off down low near first to second bolt turning this I to more 11b/c range. Still a fun route. Just take more to send with a more committing crux.

Comments: Great climb. Second pitch is suppose to be the gem of this route but thought the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd pitches were all on the money. The first two pitches were solid 5.8 IMHO. The third pitch was 5.9 if you went straight up from the ledge, scaled the vertical face, and pulled the roof move (maybe 5.10-). Fourth pitch was also great climbing on more of a blank face that has pro when you need it. Warning: large loose block half way up pitch 4 and large loose block near start of pitch five.

Comments: Great hand crack for maybe 15-20 feet. Only gear I used was .4, .75, and two 1 inch cams. After the hand crack there are still two slings in the chimney to rap down off. Top out if you want but it just seemed like a lot of work for crap climbing past where the slings were.

Comments: Slings at the top are gone. Had to traverse over to the anchors for the 5.8 sport anchors. PG-13 due to the lack of protection down low.

Comments: Love this route but if you miss the second bolt you will deck. Just something to remember. Still love it though.

Comments: Last bolt to chains is loose. It has a wiggle of about 1/4 inch. watch your send due to the fact that this bolt seemed like the crux move. Otherwise great climb with varied movement.

Comments: both anchor bolts are loose to the point this climb is NOT safe to rappel or lower off. I topped out and traversed to skid mark to lower. Great climb but needs new anchors.

Comments: no rattlesnake. Can rap down if you do some 5th class moves up and around to the right after you hit the ledge or you can take the climb straight up the varnish face after you hit the ledge. This will gain you the rap anchors from the 5.9 to the right.

Comments: Has anchors at the top with multiple old slings for rapping off of. No doubt about it this is a classic climb. My rope got stuck at the first roof like everyone else. Good luck with that. Easier for the upper body strong.

Comments: This and the rest of the climbs at this wall are suspect and chossy for the most part. Not my favorite crag. Needs a ton more traffic for cleaning up.

Comments: start is the crux and is not great due to fact that you could deck getting to the second bolt and the hold that get you there are a bit chossy. Thought this was the least impressive route at the crag.

Comments: All holds were solid today when I climbed it. Tricky start leads to great climbing. I thought this was the second best route at the crag.

Comments: 10+ for sure. some good feet and balance movements will get you through the crux down low to 3rd bolt
