Comments: I climbed this again,a nd I would agree that there is no runout. Also, looking at my old book...it shows that the beginning is in the crack system right of the piton. This makes it a little safer beginning. Finally, I had forgotten how magnificent a finish this route has.

Comments: The route has now been bolted. Also, we changed the route name to reflect an incident experienced by Adam on the FA.

Comments: A BD #8 or a yellow Metolius will protect the initial moves. If this route is a 5.11b then Winky and Waxman is like a 5.10b. This is considerably harder than I expected, but I wasn't climbing real well. The line seemed a bit contrived as well. Not a bad line, just not anything special.

Comments: Another good route that could be better without the stretch of loose rock. Some very fun moves near the bolt and the finish is great. This anchor could use a replacement. I also believe that this route could sew up. The Straight up variation seemed contrived. Maybe just a way to clip a bolt to feel safer.

Comments: Great line with some great air, but as Ryan said it may not be for the 5.8 leader. I remember at the crux thinking, how good was my last piece because I didn't like the pieces at the crux. Good rock generally.

Comments: Maddog,
Not yet. Anytime you want to get out and get it (as long as you don't drop me :) ) let me know. I took all winter off and am ready for it.

Comments: About as scary a lead as I have ever attempted. I passed the one placement that I shouldn't have and my head thanked me as I let my second take the lead beyond the ledge. As Ryan said, "Do not pass up a placement". If you do not find the sequence at the lip excpect a hard 10 move to pop the lip. Very fun route with some cool moves.


Location: WY : Devil's Tower : South Face Lower Buttress : Flight 714 (5.11a)

Comments: My third route of the tower. I did cheat and TR this, but only because I was doing it at night with a headlamp. Would have been a cool lead. Very fun with a cool crimpy mid-section. Didn't love the anchors up top though.

Comments: Fun moves and impeccable rock, with one exception...a loose hold at the top-out. Top two bolts are scary leeper hangers. Beware.


Location: WY : Devil's Tower : South and East Faces : TAD (5.7)

Comments: Well, just got back from the Tower and we chose Tad as our means to break into and top out on the Tower. Thoroughly enjoyed it. First pitch, like most before me have said, was the odd fist/hand/offwidth moves, but good face holds to break them up. The 2nd pitch just kept coming at me. Consistent and long, with nary a comfortable rest. Well worth the flight for one long route.

Comments: Having climbed both variations of Gordon's, the Original long one pitch version is the best, if rope drag can be controlled.

Comments: Having climbed both variations of Gordon's, the Original long one pitch version is the best, if rope drag can be controlled. That is why I knocked this version down to three stars...not as sustained and fun.

Comments: We felt it was easier to go right of the crack, using the finger rail. Then, jam a left hand jam and pop it. Good short route, but a rope eater.


Location: ID : City of Rocks : Parking Lot Rock : Parking Lot Rock - Northeas... : Thin Slice (5.10a)

Comments: Another great line. Don't miss this one. I felt a tad harder than Bloody Fingers, and a lot less secure. I remember thinking to myself as I looked up at it, "This doesn't look all that great". Man, was I wrong.


Location: ID : City of Rocks : Elephant Rock : Elephant Rock - East : The Pygmies Got Stoned (5.10a)

Comments: I believe 9 draws plus two for the anchors. A high first bolt and well-spaced bolts in the easier ground. I believe between 2 and 3 was the worst, but not runout. A really nice line with great moves. The brown face in the middle just keeps coming at you. Would get 4 stars if the climbing was like that all the way. The finish almost spat me off as I was clipping the chains. Well worth climbing.

Comments: Classic. Much better than Rye Crisp. Don't get sucked into the large crack at the end. Use the face.

Comments: Not nearly as good as other routes in the area. I was not too impressed with this route. Still worth climbing and worth the less than 5 minute approach to get there.
