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.

Comments: Clipping the 3 bolts is not required for this climb. A yellow and blue Metolius as well as a large (3 or 4) sized cam protect the lower section.

Comments: I led this yesterday with a set of cams and stoppers. I feel it is rather well protected. As Tony has stated above, I think this route should be considered for retro-unbolting with the first ascentionist's permission. I think the bolts left of the crack on P2 of Staying Alive are an atrocity. This part of the climb in particular is well protected and does not warrant permanent fixtures. I encourage other 5.9 leaders to lead the route traditionally and weigh in on the issue.

Comments: Seems like a 1 move wonder to me. V1 boulder problem is protected by a large, blue, Metolius cam. Enjoy.

Comments: We didn't realize about the intermediate rap anchor when we descended this beauty of a climb in the dark.... a 70 meter rope will get you down the the next anchor though... Too bad we only had a 60, and were forced to leave some gear on the tree above the first belay station. Solid 5.8 with some interesting crack climbing. Interesting position once you pull though the crux. This climb is better done when it is still light out.

Comments: You can place a nut between the second and third bolts if you so desire. This route is quite slick if it is at all wet.
