Comments: Rapped it with a 70 from the Rap rings to the block start of the Gift. It was just enough.

Comments: Do it as at mega pitch and top belay the follower. 70M or double ropes needed to get down by rapping straight down 7 year itch. You might be able to swing over to the intermediate wrap on Gun Boat With a single 60, we didn't.

Technical crux is definitely up high on the 2nd Pitch, You think you are smooth sailing, but tricky guard the exit. Rope drag is manageable, so do the super pitch.

Comments: Did in 3 pitches,
1st - 5.5ish to a large flat ledge. Traversed right on the ledge to set belay besides the Large Block.
2nd - 5.7 slab scramble to the base of the right facing corner. Here's the 5.9 section, fire up this into the flake, keep pulling on jugs, got below roof, traversed right to a big ledge. Belayed here due to rope drag.
3rd - Headed Straight up roof jugs and then 5.4 climbing to the top and anchor on a pine tree.

Comments: 70 meter rope is needed if you take it to the old TAT above the 1st tree. That was a nice surprise.

It's pretty un-natural to try and take this over to the Anchors of "Left-up", which is what I guess people are expected to do. I added a quick link to the tree with some tat (35M from the ground), since there was none. One would think this would have been fixed up differently since it is normally guided to death.

Comments: I'd love to see this get cleaned up.. I'd be willing to help with it. I got all the tools, but none of the approval.

Comments: I really think this is a underrated route for Crowders. Looks like the harder (right side of bolts) line has flaked out and disintegrated over the years, but the left side line is still very good. Big moves to to holds that are better than you think. Until you get to the the LARGE Creaky Flake (5th to 6th bolt). Remember pull down not out. The traversing is fun too. Thanks to Diabe for this one.

Comments: This route currently has a tree fall on it above the 2 second bolt. I guess you could sling it for more protection, but it is directly in the way of the route.

Comments: We used a 70m and 60m rope together. You could do the rappel with a single 70m.

Comments: Fun climb. We did this on Saturday, only noticed 3 other parties on the climb. We were able to do it without place 1 piece of pro. Many thanks to those who put this up. Just FYI, it's still a little dirty and lichen-ish, but it's safe climbing.

Comments: Climb this this past weekend. The cable is in good condition, and the top ledge can support about 2 parties at the same time while waiting to use the rap rings.
