Comments: I went all the way to the right. I have heard that bolt use to never be there but as long as I have been in LCC (5 yearsish) iv always seen it there.

Comments: This climb is pretty sustained and longer than it looks. Seemed a tad harder than 5.8 to me. Bring a larger cam (a #4 or #5 Camalot) to protect the beginning chimney.

Comments: Lots of small gear! Small fingers through the crux to a spot where I was able to place a #1 Camalot. Continue with small gear (.3 and .4 Camalots). Pass a dead bush to a flake that can take larger gear to a 2 bolt anchor.

Really fun route! Crux was 20ish feet or so up for me. Look for good Crimps to the right on the second section of fingers.

Comments: Where is this "spear of fear" in joes near the dead bold that I have never seen?

Comments: Did you ask for permission to climb? Cause if you didn't I will. Where is it at? Looks like it would be somewhere near price (or joes) same rock formation

Comments: The 5.10c alternative finish is awesome! I highly recommend doing it to get the most out of the route. Still love pitch 1 as well though.

Comments: The traverse is fun! I noticed when I got to the belay anchors of that pitch (I think its 4, but for me it was 3 since I linked 1 & 2) there were chains up about 70ish ft and to the west, which made it look like if one wanted to skip the traverse and head strait up to the bulge protect in that crack and head up a crack west of the anchors I ended at a possibility. Has anyone done this? Whats the climbing like?

Comments: Every time I climb this route from the first to the second bold seems harder than 5.8 and every time it makes me work, maybe that's why I keep going back.

Comments: The first pitch is actually my favorite! Great exposure and the toughest pitch IMO

Comments: Between Antelope and Gazelle there is a bolted route on the face that is not mentioned in any beta photos. Does anybody know the name of this route?

Comments: I agree with Kenny, the start wasn't the crux for me either, it was the slightly overhanging slopers at the top. I wish the finger pockets at the start lasted longer also, they are awesome!

Comments: Recently got to do this route and it was awesome! Took doubles in Camalots up to size 3, but didnt use everything and there was no need for #4. Pitch 3 has some hollow sketchy rock and up top at the belay there was a larger boulder that I noticed a tad loose (I didnt clean it because there was a party below us in the cirque and it was of decent size where it could have traveled some).

On the hand jams on the final pitch we used all the rope (60m) but it didn't get us to the summit so we h... more >>

Comments: This route is way fun! It is super awesome that it has been added to. Today I climbed 3 of the new pitches that have been added (didnt have time for the rest) all very fun. It was a bit dirty, so go climb it so it can get cleaned up some ;-)! One of my favorite routes and cant wait to finish the whole thing!
