Comments: Fun Fun Fun….but still so hard……..

For me, double set of Master Cams (blue-orange), I also use a BD 0.3 and 0.4. Save a baby blue for the top.

Comments: What a super-fun line. Went back for another jog last weekend. For me it starts with big hands, goes to super raptly hands (thank goodness the start is easy) then the meat of the climb is glorious fists for me. Mostly big BD #3 but a couple of BD #3.5 works too. I don't think the new BD #4 fits……

A 70 meter rope doesn't work unless you use many tricks…….. we were way too short but had a tag line along so no problem.

Comments: Yes it is pretty short but super fun moves and great rests. The route gobbles gear in the thin hands range. The first roof/flake/step-around is fun and not too hard. Look around…..its all there. The final bulge is the meat of the climb…….much steeper than it looks, but there are plenty of good (deep) hand jams……you will just loose your feet for a move or two. Fun route!

Comments: The anchor has two bolts!

Fun route. Dont be discourage cause it looks dirty up there (you don't climb that way!!!…… start in the bombay type slot and after about 15 feet or so step/ chimney/stem right and pull over the fun flake. Pay attention to gear placement and use long slings. An old #4 is useful at the top.

Comments: Yesterday was my first time climbing Solar Slab. Did it in one pitch in one hour. A perfect fun outing.
A few notes:
Pro can be found early on pitch one if one is looking.
Be careful when passing the exit of Arch Enemy on pitch 2, lots of loose rock.
The rest of the route is kind of a blur, super easy climbing, lots of good gear.
All stations have good bolts but no chains (except for P1 and P7 if I remember correctly)……lots of old tat….. bring extra webbing just in case you need to back up a st... more >>

Comments: Yep pitch two is a rope eater when rapping. I highly recommend rapping Jupiter. Super clean. However, the last rap leaves you 15 feet shy of the ground if you use a 70m rope….. I didn't find the down climbing that easy…… but maybe I was just tired……

I thought pitch two was glorious. Super fun body position. I didn't think the thin dihedral was that desperate……in fact I got a no hands rest in the "crux". I thought the balancy and reachy moves on pitch four being the most desperate on the whole c... more >>

Comments: Such a fun and exciting climb.

Two 60m ropes work perfectly for the raps. Just head right at the top for maybe 50ft to the second rap tree. Rap to huge tree on ledge. Another rap to ground. Easy and straightforward.

Comments: This is sooooooo super fun!!! Another one of my faves at this wall. Although not in the same league as Curiosity……. but nothing is.
A few BD#0.5 followed by several BD#0.75, with a BD#1 finish.

Comments: It looks like an OW but it doesn't climb like one. Really fun stemming and chimney style climbing. Maybe one BD#5…….
The crux is leaving the ground…… the rest is pretty easy.
Use common sense when pulling the rope!!!! For very very obvious reasons.

Comments: I thought this was pretty darn fun….and way easy…

Just use some pretty basic chimney/squeeze technique and then surmount the top.

Comments: I just did this route two days ago. Absolutely excellent!!!! Very thin in places with little to no pro. Overall the climbing is max WI 4 but with a + for spice.
Three easy raps with one 60 meter rope. The first is off a tree and just gets you down (i.e. you need a true 60), the next two raps are both off a stopper/knotted sling combo.

Comments: The ice is fantastic right now. Just cruised the whole thing yesterday. A few sections are thin with somewhat exciting top-outs. I used a few stubbies to save the head. The walk-off (skier's right) is obvious with a well-defined trail. It is super steep and does require lots of sliding down through thick saplings... but overall not a bad descent.

Comments: Ok so it is time to merge this one with Unnamed 11-. The real name of this route????? Who knows, it has always been called Unnamed 5.11- in my book......

All that IS irrelevant as the two routes are the same.......

So MP lets not have duplicate routes on here!!!!! I am sure someone knows if this was named way back when or if Gold Crown is some new thing.....

Comments: Super fat and little avi danger at the moment. WI 3-4.
It is exactly 1/4 mile from the parking at Officer's Gulch.
One rope is perfect.

Comments: This is in great and fat condition right now. Start at the base of a small ice step then hike to the first pitch. It is max WI 2+ if the easy line is done, but climb further left and there is is a pretty fun looking and stout pillar. A long hike takes you to the second pitch. This is probably WI 3 right now, but if you climb on the right side, it is max WI 2 and again the further left the steeper...still not WI 4... IMHO.
Above is another long easy but super fun pitch of WI 2-.
Rapping is easy w... more >>
