Comments: can confirm, single 70m rope will get you down just fine. Felt like the '10d' roof was pretty sandbagged, if well bolted. Link the two after the roof crux for a fun long pitch! Great route!

Comments: P2 can be done two ways. Left at what I would call very technical and thin crimpfest with no feet 11++, or right using the somewhat dirty corner at more of an 11ab. Third pitch is super fun, well bolted and I felt pretty soft for 10d. Great ledges at all belays that have easily accessible anchors for the neighboring route. You could easily bypass the 11b and do the 10b? next door for a fun 9, 10, 10, 3 pitch route!

Comments: Fun area for some quality crack climbing. Note that the only anchors in the area are on top of Grass Crack on the far left, so if you want to TR stuff you will have to build your own anchors at the top of the various lines and then deal with some shenanigans traversing over (easier the higher you go) to the grass crack anchors in order to clean your gear. Alternatively you can walk off over the top of the dome (4th class but kinda sketch).

Comments: Still cleaning up, we pulled a melon-sized chunk off down low, and it was raining pebbles the whole time we were on it. Deceivingly pumpy down low to a pretty impossible to read onsight crux (stay right!). There is a good rest before you launch into the crux if you can suss out how to use it.

Comments: The dihedral is super chossy, pulled a baseball chunk out of it. Not straightforward, pumpy, hardest 10 I've been on in a while.

Comments: just like to reiterate that the 'path' in the book connecting silent pillar with the rest of the subgorge via the river does not exist. Be prepared to get your shoes wet or go up and around. We tried to start the day in the shade at Inyo and end it with Silent Pillar via the river path. A good deal of rock hopping and bushwhacking later we were met with some pretty serious rapids that we didnt feel like navigating and had to retrace our steps. Also the 'direct' approach is pretty ghastly dow... more >>

Comments: beyond stellar! Save a red c4 for the final left angling section. You can get up high on it and surprisingly easily layback the final section to the chains.

Comments: personally thought the 'tricky 5.9' move at the end of the third pitch was harder than the '10a' move getting out of the p4 arch, and I was leading on the arch! Last two pitches easily link with a 60. I think this route is a great intro to any of the apron routes to get comfy with the friction the granite gives you. If you are seconding a pitch, try to not even look at your feet and see how you do, its surprising how solid it feels!

Comments: to help ID p1, you can see some rap anchors towards the top of p1 left of the slab traverse. The '10c OW' on p3 is no such thing. maybe a 5.9 chimney with no OW required if you face out and rack on the right. We had a full double rack to 4" and my partner only had 2 small aliens and 3-4 nuts left after leading the monster 70m final pitch! Rap down Bulletheads East with a single 70. every pitch was different and fun!

Comments: stellar! sling your last piece (#3 c4 for me) before you make the face traverse out right super long and then dont place anything until you get to the hand traverse (green alien) to avoid hanging yourself with ropedrag later on. I think I used 12 slings in all.

Comments: if you dont want to grunt through the chimney, you can go left and up a little 5.6 groove and then traverse right on a slopey ledge with a finger crack in the back (protects with blue/purple metolious) to rejoin the route at the top of the chimney. fun route!

Comments: if karate crack is 10a, this is an 8+. not sustained, low angle, easy pro, slammer jams, face holds galore. a tiny bit of face climbing/laybacking at the top gets you to the chains.
