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 >>

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: 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.
