Comments: Benjamin- it's an unprotected face that becomes slabbier and slabbier... obviously :).

Toby- Rs and Xs become hard to distinguish in Tuolumne. I find it really surprising that a self-admitted climber not "well-versed in the way of climbing on nubs" would attempt this route! Good on you for pulling it off.
There are plenty of better protected Meadows routes to learn these skills on. Head to Low Profile Dome and check out Golfer's Route and Darth Vader's Revenge. Also check out the climbs on the... more >>

Comments: Totally weaksauce suggestion. Sounds like you need to work on your all around climbing and protection skills. I have climbed that route probably more than any other in the Meadows and never had unmanageable drag finishing the Gram. There's good gear (small stopper if I remember right) to be had before pulling the miniroof at the end of the traverse if you actually look for it. And don't forget to put a long sling on it, genius!

Comments: I like Mike's route names. They've given me a chuckle more than once.

Plus, naming probably gets difficult when you've put up as many routes as Mike has! Thanks for all the $$$/hard work/quality climbs Mike!

Comments: I think maybe someone retrobolted the gear placement between the 1st and 2nd bolt (newer bolt w/ Mad Rock hanger)... definitely no need for gear on this route now.

Comments: On 10/6/12, this thing had a gnarly wasp nest on it just above the 4th bolt. Heads up!

Comments: Yup, definitely on the short list for best 11s out here! Fantastic climbing with no distinct crux (maybe the monos, but the feet are so good there). Sustained from about bolts 4-9... hang on!

Comments: Feels more like 5.9 when stemming... but still totally worth doing! Awesome position and great climbing. Right side seemed pretty clean if you pay attention. Good one for the morning shade FCR circuit, along with Euro Trash Girl/Werewolves of London/Crossbow Chaos Theory (among others).

Comments: Pretty funny that the guy calling Caveat 10a thinks the crux is the crack pitch.... wonder if he lead any of the pitches when he did it. I think Donini's spot on FWIW.

Comments: Thanks Jason. Pretty spectacular and formidable place indeed. A friend from Billings just climbed the Upper Doublet. I must say I'm more drawn to the skiing up there than the climbing!
