Comments: It loses a star because it is a bolted in the "OW" section. With that said, it's a classic for the area and a gorgeous line anywhere. If you're firing through the diagnoling fingers section hoping to be rewarded when you get to the pod, you'll be sorely disappointed. In fact, you'll be entering the crux. Based on doing a lot of other cracks in the Sierra, I think this route is 11a. It is noticeably harder than Last Exit (11a), which is rattly fingers (crux) to an arete, and is just few clim... more >>

Comments: A steep and pumpy romp through horizontals. A very proud send by the first ascentionist, who I heard climbed it onsight.

Comments: The third pitch is about the same difficulty as the fourth, both about 10+.

Comments: Either this problem is pretty good V5, or a cheesy eliminate V6. There is a good left hand hold that helps to get established as you move up towards the last two crimps before the crystal jug. Most everyone uses it as a foothold, if not everyone, so it's pretty silly to avoid it with your hands.

Comments: Lost Boys starts with the left on a open-hand side pull, and right hand on the slopey shelf. Starting with both hands on the slopey shelf, as described here is not the complete problem. Lost Boys from this start is a v6.

Comments: From a distance, one of the prettiest lines in Tuolumne. The second pitch is weird, and my rack was a little too small when I did it, but it's not too bad. The third pitch is harder than 5.7, and it requires the leader to run it between protection. No worries though, there are features for stemming and good jams in between the wider spots. A fantastic route.

Comments: Filet actually gets some sun in the morning, so it's climbable on colder Moore's days.

Comments: I've never climbed this with anything larger than a #4 Friend, if that. I don't know why you would carry a #5 five up there. Maybe people place one on the third pitch, which always seemed a bit more heads up protection-wise.

Comments: Short but sweet. Great fun on toprope. For me, easier to get psyched up to solo it than lead it.

Comments: Even though this gets a lesser grade than Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, it's a harder, more serious redpoint / onsight. It can be toproped avoiding the bottom bulge, but this would be unprotected on the lead.

Comments: A boulder problem crux, followed by a cool, steep overhanging dihedral. A little bit of finesse is all you need after the crux, because there are funky rests and good hand jams.

Comments: This route is not run-out after the crux bolt as pro is available before the final moves surmounting the bulge.
