Comments: Anyone know about linking pitches with a sixty meter rope? How about pitch lengths? What about retreating from the wall? I've seen posting that say link:
1 and 2
3 and half of 4
half of 4 and 5
Can this be verified? Lastly, after much debate and no concensus, it looks like a rack of this description approximates what everyone in talking about:
2 ea. blue-red alien (or tcus of similar size)
1 ea. green-blue camalot (or slcd of similar size)
1 set nuts
1 set offset nuts (including micros)

Comments: Sorry Rob, I had my facts wrong...I went and changed it. As far as I know, modern concensus is IV 5.9 A0 or 5.10c, although I have also seen it listed as III 5.8 A1 or 5.10-. Regardless, great route no matter how it gets rated. Anyone care to comment.

Comments: Thanks Nate for the great story and description...inspiring and funny. I will be a hero someday! I attempted a solo in mid-july last summer with a hand-drawn topo and not much beta on the route. Needless to say, I didn't know about the spring at the base. Yes, unfortunate, but true, I carried 5 gallons of water plus all the gear for the climb up the backside. See the photo for the results of such a ridiculous idea. Your info (and better research on my part) will help next time.

Comments: Thanks for the info. I am going to assume that one 60m rope can safely get from tree to tree on the rappel...is this true? Happy climbing.

Comments: Super fun route. Not much to add except that you can pass slow parties that are stuck on the roof. If you traverse left at Dinner Ledge and get onto Southern Man, then you can be to the top of P5/6 (hard to remember) directly above you real quick. The first pitch is a quick bolt ladder and the second one follows an ever narrowing seem with some grass toward the top (cam hooks are nice) and ends up linking with S. Face near the top of P5/6. I remember some creative climbing at one point, b... more >>

Comments: Was on the route with Nathan Furman (see description above...yes, I am the guy with the broken gear loop). I wouldn't add anything to his description except to say that the ice formations in Oak Creek are amazing...there's one plus for doing it in the cold, cold winter.

Another thing, you can bivy very close to Mt. Wilson. On the approach trail are lots of small flat areas to throw down at. I agree that the approach is easy, but don't under estimate it.

Have fun!
