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: At first you think it's snow... then on further inspection you realize it's not.

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.

Comments: I lead the right side, all the way up to the dead tree for a nice 35m route. If you climb this one, bring a 70m rope if you want to run it all the way to the top. This made for a nice 3- 2+ climb.

Comments: Dry up there! Sneakered in the approach almost to Chasm Lake. Ice on the Dutchman is still fat, pocked out, which makes for an easy climb. A lot of snow climbing for 20 feet of ice, but maybe that's alright with you....

Comments: I think this is one of the best 9s at the crag. It is certainly safe. There are good rests once you get through the roof, probably not what the FA intended, but if it's close enough to clip the bolts, IMO, the rest is on the route.

Comments: Very surprised by the 5.7 rating of this climb. No harder than 5.5 IMO. I have done harder 5.4s at the Gunks!

Comments: I think the direct start on this one goes at about .10c . I don't really see the point in bolting only half the route, the addition of two bolts to this route would make it a much safer line. I actually climbed to the horizontal before realizing I needed gear. This was in part because I could see bolts higher up, and also saw the two bolts close together down low, so I figured it was well bolted. I would not be surprised if others made the same mistake.

Comments: I also think this is a good lead. I think the bottom part is pretty sustained for 5.7. Not a great climb for the blossoming 5.7 leader.

Comments: This climb currently has a pile of bird crap just below the crux. I would give it three stars were it not for this.

Comments: One of the better routes at this crag. An aspiring 5.10 leader should hop on this one, as it is an easy tick, and the clips are safe.

Comments: I was surprised to see this climb stopped before pulling through the cracks at the top. I would like to go back and try this one again and top-out.

Comments: The entire climb can be safely lead without the bolts. The bottom section is easily protected with a large cam for the starting flake (3 or 4) and a yellow and blue Metolius. The crux is well-protected, even if the moves are a bit awkward.
