Comments: There is a biner at the top of the dihedral towards the end. I initially thought it was booty but then realized it is there to clip into while rapping to make cleaning easier. Hopefully it will stay there as it helps a ton. Thanks to the person who let go of a bail biner for the greater good.

Comments: The second pitch of this route is amazing, sustained with thin positive holds, 2 very fun challenging cruxes. Not to be missed.

Comments: Area is still pretty chossy. I would suggest bringing a helmet along. Bits of loose rock were flying off the routes all day. Theres definitely some solid stuff, just needs to clean up a bit.

Thanks to those who put the work into the area and thanks for sharing all the route info including a pretty nice pdf/guide.

Comments: As far as I could tell there are not anchors for this climb. You can however build a natural anchor at the top, belay your partner up, and then do an easy down climb to get back to the "lunch slab".

Comments: Dont let the name scare you off. Can be done completely static. Still a lot of loose rock at the base of the torch. Fun route that puts you in a very cool/exposed position.

Comments: I would suggest extending some draws beneath the bulges starting at the very first bolt to avoid bad rope drag near the top.

Comments: Looks like a bolt has been added between the anchors and last bolt (as you come out around the roof into the short dihedral). Feels much less sketchy now than the previous comments are suggesting. Thanks to whoever did it.

Comments: Can you rap this route if you top out? Or is it easier at this point to just hike the descent?

Comments: In my opinion this is one of the best lines out here. Very fun movement and pretty sustained with a couple cruxy sections. Definitely full value. Not to be missed.

Comments: Was on this today and noticed a loose, sizeable block on the 2nd 5.10 pitch. It was a few moves past the small roof maybe 10 feet below the anchors. I pulled on it without knowing (its an obvious jug) it was loose and it definitely scared me. I dont think it is necessarily going anywhere soon but it would do some damage to the belayer if it did. A crowbar could definitely remove it if anyone else thinks it appropriate to get it off the route. Removing it would not change the climbs grade or qual... more >>
