Comments: I think P2 is as-hard or harder than p1 on this climb. Dead vertical, it's hard to get a good rest stance, and the moves are technical. I failed at placing adequate gear and took a 25 footer (cam in flaring crack failed). Thank goodness I did not take out my belayer in the process. Be careful out there folks!

Comments: Fun, but I could not find the 5.8 move on this one.

Comments: Is this route the small (12 inch) roof to the left, or the larger (4 ft) roof that forms the corner of the arete of Snow Crash? I'd say the larger roof goes at 10a or so. Has it been done previously?

Comments: Probably the only worth-while climb at this crag. I think 10- is a very generous grade. Probably easier if you are taller.

Comments: I agree with Tony both that the top and bottom pitches are about equivalent in difficulty, and that the gear placements do not warrant an S rating. I will say however that the gear on the P2 traverse is strenuous to place. I was only able to get a small nut and a yellow tcu before clipping the pin and giving it a go around the corner. Once I got around the corner, I was expecting the climb to let up a bit, but a number of 5.9 moves awaited me before I found a substantial rest stance. Great c... more >>

Comments: At the top of the second pitch (of Over the Hill) The belay tree has died and no longer wears the mark of countless rappel slings. You may downclimb easily (climber's left) To another rappel tree, or continue right on down. There is one 5.1 exposed move on the downclimb.

Comments: Don't be fooled by the featured start. Be prepared to be a little run out on small gear heading up to the bolts. The first piece of gear was well off the ground and I felt was strenuous to place. Small cams are advisable.

Comments: I think this is a good route, and while it may not be 5.11 for the duration, the top section still ticks in at 5.10c/d. I think the first bolt is way too high off the ground, so consider a stick clip. The problem is that the while the first bolt is just out of reach of clipping from the ground, the fall from this ledge would likely send you to the hospital. Would the FA agree to the addition of a bolt lower down to avoid this possibility?

Comments: I only did the first pitch of this route, and found it to be sustained 5.10d. The second pitch we did not do because Maciej pulled off a large chalky block, just by barely touching it. He lowered from the first bolt after the first belay. There was definitely more loose stuff up there. Normal spring climbing stuff, there is a good chance this route has changed a bit with the block that Maciej pulled down.

Comments: I like this climb better than the East Face Direct. Less crowded, but there is also a lot less gear, so you have to be comfortable with running it nearly a full rope length.

Comments: I actually thought this was considerably easier than Dementia. Hard for a 5.9, as you have to place gear while hanging out on the overhanging section, but the hold there is good, and a medium sized slotted nut is quick to place with the left hand. One awkward move in the middle brings you to easier climbing. Walk off is recommended. I think this is the most sustained and best 5.9 at this crag, and may be the best climb at the cliff, it's a toss-up between this and Twofer's for me. I like th... more >>

Comments: This might be the best 5.8 in the state. Excellent gear, exposure, some face climbing an committing moves. Highly recommended.

Comments: Tricky placements, small cams are advisable. I would say PG pro if that was an option.

Comments: Chains have been moved to other routes (not by me), they were a bit unnecessary. Bolts at the top need to be replaced due to corrosion.

I would say the crux move at the roof is closer to 5.9 than 5.8, so I give it a 5.9-. Also, getting to the first bolt may be a challenge for a 5.8 climber to onsight.

Comments: I climbed both the left and right sides of this route yesterday. It was like climbing two completely different climbs. I would say the right side is a tad easier, better bolted, and much more fun.

Comments: P1 is definitely 10b, not d. It's easy to get off route on this one. If you head up from the anchors, you end up on P2 of tow the line, 10a. Head right I guess if you want to do the "true route" This part of the cliff definitely feels grid bolted.

Comments: Checked this climb out on Sunday, Nov 31. There was a lot of snow up there, with wind blowing more snow into the funnel. We opted out. If you have skis, it would make the approach a bit easier, the ski-in is relatively flat.
