Comments: I would break this climb into two pitches or suffer heinous rope drag. Otherwise, fun climb. Get on it!

Comments: I pulled the hideous bolt out today. Have to go back and repair the hole. S climb is great and maybe PG in the upper dihedral. Bring a small nut or RP to protect the final moves. Larger cams (3"+) make for a solid anchor.

Comments: I broke one of the key mica holds around the 5th bolt on P2. It might be a little harder now.

Comments: The second pitch is much higher quality than the first, and accessible via a short scramble.

Comments: On the second rappel, you can make it to the tree anchors if you have a 70m. This eliminates one short rap.

On the ascent, I recommend heading past the tree belays to belay at the headwall for the second pitch.

Third pitch is amazing. Don't miss it.

Comments: Great climb. Unbelievably great, actually. We linked P 2-3, which I think is good if you have a 5.9 leader on your team. (Give them the first pitch). I think I skipped one bolt and put a couple of long draws in the dihedral before the traverse to manage rope drag. I climbed the traverse to safety, then went back to place gear for the second. The second actually has a clean fall if they blow the traverse early, but the extra gear will make them more comfortable. The fall for the leader is ... more >>

Comments: This high quality crag is a great one to visit almost any time of day, all summer. It gets afternoon shade, but also has a nice pine tree to hide out from the occasional hail storm. Wipeyur has 2 tiers of climbing, with the lower tiers offering mostly technical 5.10 climbing, and the climbs above, harder 12s. There are some jems in the 5.9-10 range on the upper tier however. On the right butt is a series of 5.12s, which are easily accessible from the top of a pair of stellar, varied, and lon... more >>

Comments: The anchor bolts on this route are suspect and in need of replacement. They are wiggling in their bolt holes. Be careful lowering. I'd be happy to assist in the replacement.

Comments: This is a great climb with a well-protected crux. The moves through the roof are thoughtful, and pretty burly. I think this route could be lead all trad, but as a sport climb, it makes sense to me to add 2 bolts (one low, one high) to make it safe. I would be in support of this, as a fall from before the first clip would result in a trip to the hospital, and a fall up higher on the easier terrain would likely be fatal.

Comments: Pull up into a large dish below the large s-shaped crack. Some juggy dihedral moves lead to some thin face climbing and the finish.

Comments: Spacey indeed. I would only head up this one if you are solid in the 10s. The final crux puts you in ledge-fall potential. This one is a bit easier with a longer draw at the crux.

Comments: Sketchy gear. I ended up pulling off to the arete on the left where the holds are more secure after placing a blue Metolius in the overlap. I could not find a location for two pieces despite my best effort and breaking off part of the overlap on the left side. Don't lead this unless you are comfortable soloing 5.7 slab.
