Comments: January 19, 2014- fantastic day of climbing! 90% of the routes are climbable. Was warm enough to climb shirtless in the sun. Did not need snowshoes to hike in.

Comments: To clarify the location of this route, it is on the same wall as Rave Mode. Full Body Brace is in a whole different area. The routes are listed correctly in the sequence section; however, part of the location description is inaccurate.

There is an unfinished route to the right of "Ruled By Force." That line still has dangerous choss I need to remove and several bolts to add before it is ready to climb.

Comments: This route is worth doing if you're looking for this grade level. I've cleaned it a lot, but it is still a little dusty. There is potential for a few more moderate routes here. Might I suggest this wall be named "Mod Wall"?

Comments: BE ALERT! I have only climbed this route with a 70 meter rope. I don't know if it is safe to lower a climber back to the ground with a 60. I will post when I know more. It would be possible to belay the second to the top, then walk from the rim to your vehicle.

Comments: This is a superb route that gets little traffic. Keep climbing through the crux until you find the jug to clip from. I've taken the fall, the air doesn't hurt.

Comments: I love this climb. Not as sustained as Taster's Choice, but hitting the ledge and going up the corner and out onto the left face are great moves.

Comments: I thought it was about the same difficulty as WH and RA. Not harder physically; however, there is a mental factor because of the cleaned up choss band, exposure, and traversing movement. A friend worked it today and thought it was hard 12. I don't believe it's a solid 12. New routes seem harder at first than they really are.

Comments: Thank you, Rich Strang, for helping me with this. Removing the choss was tedious, hard work. Also thanks to Travis Reid and Misty McDonald for their patient and safe belays, allowing me to free this route. -A.S.

Comments: Good moves on steep rock with all-day shade make this a great route.
