Comments: A good route, definitely worth getting on if you're in the area. Hosts features and movement akin to granite climbing, fun!

Comments: Great route! A minimal but sufficient rack: 2x .3-#2 Camalot, 1-#3, #4 (first pitch only)

Comments: A great little route, worth doing for sure, and not too scary either. The holds are good up there, just small, another footwork intensive route.

Comments: This is an excellent and classic route!
A more appropriate rating for this route would be 5.10 A0. I heard it was free at 5.11, but couldn't fathom pulling those first moves while clipping the atrocious, original bolts. This is due for a rebolting, it would make free attempts feasible. Looks like good free climbing, the first 2-3 bolts would be the crux, bouldery. Maybe some out there like aiding on shit bolts, keep it exciting, keep it risky; I won't profer those sentiments. Won't be ... more >>

Comments: The West Face is a good route, the spire is aesthetic and a great summit. The bolts should be replaced, no way to back 'em up.
Double rack to .4-#2 Camalot, triple up on #1.

Comments: Leave the wash at a steep loose gully, left of the corner, prepare for battle. The first pitch should have an R-rating, serious and dirty, terrible. Save a #3/#4 camalot to finish the runout dirt climbing. You can back up the rusty 1/4" belay bolts after the long corner with cams. The third pitch chimney is loose. Sick summit. 5 raps down Damfidont with a 70m rope, a 60m might work...

Comments: As of 5/21/13 the 1 inch webbing rappel anchor at the top of the squeeze chimney on pitch 2 was in good shape. It slings a large diameter block and features a fat steel quick link. Bring a long piece (15-20ft) of webbing if you wanna back it up. Using this allowed us to RAP WITH A SINGLE ROPE. We had a 70M but a 60M should be sufficient. A bolted station here would be nice, as the other retro anchors seem to be well received.
A slim but sufficient rack...(Camalots)

Comments: This is a great route! Needs a little more traffic to clean up some exfoliation and veg, but definitely worthy.

Comments: Nice route that gets some killer air under your feet! The first pitch is still a bit gritty with some loose holds which made it feel a little serious; it's well protected and should clean up with some more traffic. A single rack to .75 camalot, with doubles to #3, would be a great rack, the #4 got placed on P4 but wasn't necessary. Anyone know about the older-style 1/4" bolts on the route?

Comments: Oh I DID IT! Awesome route Vic!! Had shade all route starting at 830; thought pitch 4 was quite harder than 6, but maybe just the nature of it. Double rack felt a bit heavy for us, I would say double to .5 camalot with extra thin cams, and single from .5-#3 camalot. We had a 70m rope which was nice. Cheers!

Comments: SW-facing correct? I'm wondering about the comment that says it came into shade in the afternoon; is this due to the October sun? Any idea what time the wall gets sunny?

Comments: Excellent line! You can rap the route to the left, Blowhard (IV 800ft 5.12+), with one 70m rope from the big ledge at the top of the Polish route. Two #4's and one #5 Camalot felt nice...
