Comments: An excellent climb indeed, but I'm not sure about all the hype of it being runout.... The only part I found to be runout was the 10 feet of 5.8 before getting to the anchor bolts. After that, the 10a crux was very well-protected, and then at the final bulge there is a bomber nut placement before committing to the moves. Spicy? Somewhat. Runout? Not so much... nowhere was I ever 6 feet above a piece except for that first 5.8 I explained (yes, I was plugging gear in where I could anticipating the ... more >>

Comments: The 10a pitch is by far one of the best of its grade in Eldo.

Comments: Without a doubt this is one of the finest lines in Eldo. Every pitch is classic and there is an amazing variety of climbing throughout the four pitches. Absolutely fantastic.

Comments: As of May 18th, there is a fixed stopper at the crux that protects the moves very well.

Comments: this is an excellent line, however it is very stiff for a 5.9+, in fact it is harder than several 10a's at the red. Maybe it is finger size dependent (mine hardly fit). either way it is definetely worth doing.

Comments: As of 1-4-08 there is a fixed #0.5 Camalot on the second pitch...an ice storm was moving in and my partner was unable to get it out in time, so we bailed.

Comments: Along with the above comment, this is a wonderful route, except the last 10 feet or so are very uncomfortable because you are scrambling on a vertical dirt face grabbing on to tiny roots! If there were bolted anchors, this route could make a classic.

Comments: This is a super fun route. One can belay in the crack about 20 feet below the crux roof (making it more comfortable with your belayer right below you). For taller people, this route is not that bad.

Comments: this is a great line, and not as hard as it looks. The gear is solid, and both pitches should be linked (with a 60meter rope you can make it down).

Comments: The last pitch is a great link up with the first two pitches of Werk Supp. It's pretty spicy near the top of the finger crack, but the gear is great so it is well protected. I followed this route a few weeks ago and wasn't too fond of it, but after leading it today, I realized how great this line actually is.

Comments: If you're going to do the first pitch, then you have to do the second. That's where all the excitement is! Getting swallowed up by that fat crack is great!

Comments: No need to clip the pin or even place a cam before pulling the lip, there is a little hole that you can sling a runner through, bomber and makes the scary move a little bit less frightening....
