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.

Comments: This is a great climb but definitely a sandbag at 5.9. Expect throbbing toes unless you have excellent crack technique (I do not). Stiff soled shoes might also help. The traverse on p3 is heads up on tiny edges but is all there (5.10c). The rest of pitches 2, 3, and first 1/2 of 3 are sustained 5.9.

Comments: Actually.

I'm not sure who climbed the FA, but the day Tod, DD, and I rapped down and placed first bolts on the last pitch, the climb was named. I called the fire into the authorities from atop the climb, but they may have already been informed. That was a momentous first day at the head for me, and I would not return to climb all three pitches from the bottom with Tod for two years (long after the FA was done).

Comments: Please do not climb this route right now. There are some large nesting birds about 1/2 way up. They are disturbed by climber's presence. Later in the summer when the nest is unoccupied, I will try and get it cleared out.

Comments: I'd be wary of sending a budding 5.10 leader up there. I think that if you toprope this thing to death and rehearse the moves before giving it a go on lead, you might come out with 10b. Onsight, with strenuous placements and numerous possibilities for sequences, deciphering the "right" way to climb this thing is pretty hard. I think 10d is more reasonable onsight rating.

The bolts are well-placed and protect the crux of the climb adequately. I found 3 blue Metolius or green Alien placements... more >>

Comments: Climbed this yesterday for the first time. Couple of notes:

If you have a 70m rope, you can reach the base of the climb by climbing West Chimney and trending right to the Red Ledge. There's actually some fun moves in there. From the ledge, you can get a small cam and place a long runner and make it to the small tree at the base of Icarus. I recommend one of those pulley carabiners if you do this. I wish I had one. This is a nice way to protect your second on the ledge if you find this nec... more >>

Comments: There is a large bolt with no hanger at nearly the top odd the dihedral sticking out about 2 inches. Careful not to poke yourself with this eyesore. Does anyone object to its removal, since there is adequate pro nearby and it seriously degrades the quality and safety of the route?

Comments: There is a large block on this about 3/4 way up that looks fairly unstable. I'll X it the next time I'm there. It's going to need a crowbar and may destabilize the block above if removed. I'd advise against its use. Looking for feedback as to whether folks want this thing gone.

Otherwise, this is a great route with solution pockets, and an unbelievable rail appears, just when you need it. Fun!

Comments: Nice route. Amazing exposure for a 60-footer. Make sure you bring some long runners to manage rope drag. This thing is still exfoliating, and there is a loose square-shaped block at the crux. It's not required to pull through. I'll try to trundle it next time I'm up there.

I think a 4" piece would be helpful, but the largest I brought up was a #3.

Comments: Right->left is much easier at V2, even if you use the lower holds.
Left->right is V3-, even if you use the higher holds.

Super fun traverse.

Also, on the left side of the traverse is a fun vertical problem with a big throw to a hueco off big holds. V1.

Comments: Great route with great protection. I wish it was longer. The opening moves are steep, and there's some loose rock at the crux before entering the chimney. No way I'd send a beginner leader up this one, but it's a good place to practice setting some anchors at the bottom.

Comments: It might be worth noting that the route is named for one of the contributors to the invention of the semi-conductor, and eventually the integrated circuit, which we all are lucky enough to utilize whilst contributing to, and consuming, this site!

Awesome climb. Do it in the "classic" way. In the buff.
