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 >>

Comments: Actually the bolts are solid. They are fat and long and the rock surface was cleaned well prior to installation. I was there when they were put in, so I did notice that.
Great route! Bring a couple of BD #3 and #4 for the top. Nice and wide.

Comments: Did anyone ever rebolt this one? I would be more than willing to contribute to the bolting fund. I sure would love to do the Solar Slab/Chicken Lips adventure day!!!! But not until rebooted.....

Comments: Great route. The top is classic but big fists for me. Extra BD#3.5 came in handy. I was working pretty hard up there..... LOL

I did some sort of slither traverse.......super fun!!!

A 70m rope worked great for the rap with lots of extra. It seems as a 60m would be fine too, but I just don't see a 50m...... but I could be wrong......

Comments: If you have a 70 m rope you can rap to the ground, no problem!!! The ends just reach the ground so know your middle.......

I say 3 BD#2 and a bunch of BD#3, BD#4 and one BD#4.5. There is really only one place for the latter.....

It does go down to BD#3 at the top.

Comments: Well the old guidebook says 5.10c and the new says 5.10d. All I can say it is not 5.10b, and the second pitch is awesome and may look mangy, but the climbing is not and it sure isn't 5.9 either. The going rating is 5.10-ish.

Comments: Yeah, I think pitch one of Let Me Cry is the crack immediately to the left of Two Jews. It looks like an awesome line, but it is full of bushes. If cleaned, it would surely increase in popularity.
The unnamed 5.8 is pretty fun but is very spicy between bolts one and two. The anchor is fine. We replaced the webbing and left a biner.

Comments: Super route with great rests; hence I can't say it is sustained. I'm sure the crux is different for everyone. For me, it was the finger crack getting off the ground. The roof/ow/chimney looking thing is daunting but not hard. A BD #5 protects that move if you want to haul one up there. The rest of the route is pretty straightforward. The upper section eats gear, a few #4 may come in handy.
I agree with the 9+ rating except the start felt more like 10 for me. But maybe caus... more >>

Comments: This is a two pitch climb and it is accurately rated at 5.11!!!

Pitch one -- 35 meters -- 5.10 -- excellent finger crack. The beginning protects with two pitons and one can add a couple of purple TCUs. Many blue and yellow TCUs are needed. TCUs fit better than quad cams, but a couple of BD 0.3-0.4 are useful. Fat bolts with stainless steal rings at the anchor.

Pitch two -- 40 meters - 5.11 -- excellent finger crack, but it turns to tips in a couple of short sections, the rack from pitch one wo... more >>

Grueling!!!!

Do I need to say more????

Absolutely amazing, sustained forever, many BD #5 (new style).......

The start wasn't too bad for me as I got great stacks, but further up the stacks turned really crappy....... The pod is fun, both getting into and out of......

A 70 meter rope works perfectly, but just, so pay attention!!!!

The ultimate climb for screaming barfies.......
