Comments: Honestly think this one makes for a better warmup than the 10s!

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!

Comments: Is it just really smoky/early or were you guys up there in the midst of a storm?

Comments: I thought I heard something about how the first ascentionists wanted to rate this thing .11b. Then Bachar did it and told them it wouldn't be rated any harder than .10d in the Valley.... and that's the grade that stuck.

Might not be true, but it's kind of funny and I heard it from a couple of Bachar's pals when I lived out there.

Comments: Bryson, just curious which .11ds in the Mondo you're thinking of. I thought this felt on par with Shaft's Big Score, Air Guitar, Resurrection of a Solid Gold Rock Star etc.... easier than Captain Insano or Pump Me Like a Shotgun I guess.

Comments: Pretty darn sustained with a definite crux. 12 bolts + 2 for anchors.

Comments: Great climbing. More powerful, bigger moves than Center Shinto. Probably 12a.

Comments: Hell yeah! NC just annexed Warbonnet I heard? :) Great work, quickly seeing how a high camp below Warbonnet would be a worthy base for a trip all its own next year!

Comments: Super classic, full on rounded edge lieback to crux flop to the top. The corner that makes up the first part of the pitch is CLASSIC!

Comments: Fantastic climbing, mostly hands with a few great fingerlocks, some fun stemming, and big reaches. A giveaway at the grade (for Vedauwoo anyway).

Comments: Fun with a crux that's a trip to figure out! A buddy of ours did better right-side in than we did left-side in....

Comments: Cheating with good technique maybe :). While it may be semantics as you say, I think the grading feature and route discussions are the coolest, most useful features of Mountain Project.

I think your description is great and does justice to one of Bozeman's best climbs. It was also quite a memorable pitch for me as it was one of my first 5.10 trad leads almost 10 years ago! I'm not trying to trash talk, just throwing another opinion out there.

Comments: Mega classic, one of the nicest granite crack pitches I've ever climbed (or seen). Enduro Corner training?

Comments: Agreed, mostly a fist crack with a couple offwidth-type moves. Great climb!

Comments: Awesome, awesome pitch. It blows my mind how many classics there are on this crag. Great right-side in blue collar offwidthing to an awesome switcharoo to left side in jamming and liebacking about halfway up.
