Comments: This was an excellent route.

Wandering, yet ultimately direct. Varied climbing on faces slabs and a little crack.

I thought the first pitch was the crux and solid .11a, maybe even a tad harder. The third pitch you have to punch it at the crux and run it out on 5.9. The traverse is awesome, and the last pitch is not bad (.10c compared to the first) and one of the least sustained on the route.

Comments: I thought this one had one of the hardest single sections out of the quadrifecta of .11d/.12a routes on this wall. Fortunately it gets easier after this.

Comments: This was a good adventure climb, kind of like Sharkstooth (RMNP) meets the Black Canyon. Not knowing any better, I started from the lower la cueva canyon parking lot which took about 1:45 to get to the base. From this approach it is hard to see how anyone would NOT call this the thumb! The climbing was mostly secure albeit loose, but the crux above the ring piton felt like 5.7 trying to avoid the obvious loose holds. Steep and airy, a good day out! Can't wait to explore more of this area.

Comments: I would take shoes, but I'm a massive wimp when it comes to soloing. The only climb I ever really solo these days is the Direct East Face on the First Flatiron where I take my time and normally get passed by old guys practically running in hiking boots. I felt secure on this, but the route finding is challenging, and you could easily make it harder. What I did felt about 5.6 with 5.10 route finding. For comparison, I think soloing the Northeast Ridge on Spearhead would feel like more difficu... more >>

Comments: Didn't find any knee lock on this one, pretty pumpy climbing with a difficult crux that felt harder than .12a especially when compared to Arms Bazaar. The runout up top gets easier the higher you go, but you go a ways above that last bolt!
