Comments: The route described is actually a link-up of 3 routes, and is called the Sifuentes/Weber/Monte link-up, or something like that. THe actual Sifuentes Weber stays left of the roof on the 3rd pitch and continues to the summit from there. The last pitch of the link-up is the Sifuentes-Monte route. See the guidebooks in Refugio El Frey for more detailed information. Amazing route!

Comments: 1st Pitch: The 1st "pitch" traverses right from upper saddle (below the base of the west face rappels). This pitch is easy, but very exposed and has a few slabby moves that will make you think when wearing gloves and approach shoes. A few Pins and a bolt. There are some cracks to place gear if you want. This pitch ends on a ledge full of large blocks. About 40m.

2nd Pitch: Climb a short crack in a left facing corner. Slabby at first. Once past this crack, stand on a large ledge with a pin. Then... more >>

Comments: We climbed Grace Falls Nov. 1, 2012. It was in pretty good shape. It was the only climbable flow. There are 2 pitons with some blue webbing at the top of the steep flow, below a 20ft section of WI2. I added a 0.75 and a yellow Supercam in shallow placements above and to the right of the pitons. To TR with a 60m rope, you'll have to extend the anchor at least 20ft.

Comments: Pitch 1: You can do a 3rd/4th class approach by going just a bit further to climber's right, past the water streaks on the sandy slab. Go up the gully and traverse out left to the 1 bolt anchor.

Good route. Worth doing. Well protected. The crux pitch is a bolted short steep crimpy section that pulls into a very insecure slab with few positive edges - well-enough bolted and options for small cams higher.

Descent: Avoid going down the "descent gully" to looker's right of the Solar Slab Wall. Thi... more >>

Comments: We did the original last pitch, the 5.10 pitch that is shared with Age Axe. There were no more fixed wires. It was sustained 5.10, exposed, and really, really good - minus the sketchy block about half way up. Pro was TCUs to #2 Camalot. There is a crack on top of the cliff that takes #0.75 to #3 Camalots for an anchor, if I remember correctly.
