Comments: Good work! Is there an existing line on the north ridge that you know of? Also, how was the rock?

Comments: I thinks it's best that I list this as a possible FA. I agree there's too much speculation and doubt and it's hasty of me to assume otherwise. Any info regarding any activity on this face would be welcome as it's hard to find anywhere else.

Comments: It's certainly possible this is not a FA and, I must admit, probable that it at least criss crosses existing ones. I did as much research as I could to find existing routes and found nothing, but given the prominence of the face over the well traveled Vallecito Trail, I do find it hard to believe that there are no routes on the face. I have heard of winter ascents up the major cleft on the west face. If this is not a FA, then I would be more than happy to remove it as one. I would actually en... more >>

Comments: Hunchback Pass is definitely the most reasonable access to the East Grenadiers. Better yet you can go all the way up to Kite Lake and hike in almost a straight line into the basin below the north face of Silex in about three miles for a six mile round trip. You're right about the east face comment, a little dyslexia on my part.

Comments: Yes, winter conditions would certainly be favorable and more exciting for this face. I would call Choss Bubbles an unfavorable summer variation to the Dave F. and Martinelli line.

Comments: This climb is way easier than 10-. With great protection all the way, a useful finger crack, a useful fist to chicken wing crack, and as much stemming as you desire, this thing felt like 9-.

Comments: Just climbed this thing. Thought it was worth it but probably won't do it again. Pulling around and getting to the top of the first two roofs are the hardest moves. We simuled everything else. I read that lots of people are rapping off the top to get down. This is unnecessary. Descend down the left side of the chimney that splits the large summit boulder and the ridge proper and scramble down the gully climber's left of the ridge you just climbed.

On a different note, does anyone know wha... more >>

Comments: While leading, the crux isn't the scary part. The scary part is the last sandy slab climbing before the anchor. The bolt is way below, the gear above the bolt is shit, and it is very sandy (possible deck fall). I had a moment of weakness here and downclimbed to some crappy micronuts to lower off. They popped of course, and I went for a long ride nearly to the ground. But the bolt is solid! (If leading, you might as well solo this one.)
