July 2011: After rockfall. Not sure what shape the route is in.  It looked like the bolts were still there, but there are some dings on the face.

A not-so-clear photo of me just above the roof on Pulley Mammoth.  The bolt on the side of the roof seems really far away when you're up there trying to clip it!

Comments: As stated above (which I unfortunately glossed over), don't start on the upper of the two ramps - the one you have to do a few easy class 5 moves to get to. I stupidly climbed up and down about 30' of this ramp, giving myself quite the scare. The climbing is easy, but the rock quality is abysmal.

I only led the first three pitches, but the 3rd one caught me off guard a bit. The climbing is reasonable, but the placements can be tricky. I kind of wished I brought offsets in a few spots. Not a big... more >>

Comments: Indeed, an insane amount of bird shit. Like sticking your mitts in crunchy peanut butter. I know I would love this climb if it were clean.

Comments: The p2 10a variation gets little mention, but I thought it was worthwhile. The initial 10a bit is short, and climbing on the prow after is cruiser and fun, but the subsequent section on the west face is the most noteworthy IMO. Route finding can be tricky, since the holds and cracks are hard to see, but there are a lot of options. I took a path consistently up and right to a notch on the ledge, using mostly face moves with the occasional jam. It felt consistent with the 10a rating, mostly due to... more >>

Comments: Six bolts still remain on this route, which matches the guidebook description. If you wish to secure the (easier) portion of the route after the bolts dry up then bring a small cam or medium stopper or two.

Comments: Just thought I'd add that, after the initial moves, P2 is 5.8-ish and protects very well

Comments: Followed entire route. Leader linked first two pitches and belayed from top of P2, putting long slings on pro near the first anchor. Felt comfortable to be belayed this way. As others have said, since I was fortunate enough to be able to focus just on the climbing and not on my nerves, P1 felt like 10a.

Comments: Perhaps this route just doesn't play to my strengths, but I had a harder time with the crux on this than The Rack. I finally got it when I found the finger pocket, but it definitely didn't come easily. Maybe I'm missing something.
