Comments: I thought this was more like 5.9, maybe .10a, but I probably wandered a bit more than the FA (because I believe in using the big holds).

Comments: @Joshh: The road was in quite bad shape on 29 Oct 2011 (completely gone in a few locations where it was in the wash).

In my Corolla we made it about 1/8 mile or so before I'd had enough; a high-clearance vehicle would probably have made it another 1/8 to 1/4 mile or so without serious risk of damage/getting stuck.

Took us about 2 hours from the car to the base of the tower.

Comments: I think 100m would be plenty.

As I recall, when I belayed someone on Huecos several years ago, we lowered with a single 70m. I had to climb up to the first bolt (or maybe a little past it) once the rope came tight on me (the belayer), then downclimb.

Comments: Maybe you guys are right, but I sure don't remember it being that hard, and I wrote the description the day after I climbed it.

Comments: This is currently marked at the base with "9+" in chalk. I thought it was definitely "plus", but I may just be weak or otherwise unworthy.

Comments: When I was first told about this line I was told it is a 5.11a. I thought the first roof was the hardest part, so if that's true, it can't be any harder than the line with which it shares the start (Unknown 5.10c).

Be a bit wary of this line. At some point some of the upper roof is going to come off. It seems fairly solid now, but is hollow-sounding when you hit it with your hand. You don't want to be around if it decides to take flight.

Comments: "Left Slab... isn't presently on MP..."

Your photo is of Left Slab.

Edit: I renamed the route linked above from "Unknown 5.7" to "Left Slab", which should explain this otherwise now non-sensical comment.

Comments: If you were at a hanging belay you weren't on Dag Nasty Part Deux.

Likely you were on Old School, although I don't remember the rock being particularly bad on that one.

Comments: Yes, the rope is gone. Some holier-than-the-rest-of-us dimwit chopped the bolts.

Comments: Left most is .10b. Right most is .10a. Next to right-most is .12a.

FA doesn't want them listed on MountainProject yet.

Comments: According to an older topo I have from several years ago Medulla Oblongata is .12b/c and Cosmic Imperative is .11c.

Note that a few of the grades listed in the topo are a letter grade different than what the grades listed here on MountainProject are; I don't know exactly what the current feeling is on those two particular routes.
