Comments: I just checked out the topo in the new book, it's spot on. Wish I saw that before I climbed it!

Comments: I did this a bit weird. Started right of El Dorado and placed gear as high as possible to the right, then down climbed back left and then straight up to the first bolt. Two stars for P1.

On p2 I traversed right from the anchor to easy ground. I didn't notice the shiny new bolt straight up. Not a good looking pitch either way. There's not bolted anchors at the end of p2.

For p3 I chose the 5.9 option to the right also not noticing the first bolt I traversed straight right from the bolted anchor... more >>

Comments: P1 is a great 10a with a bolted anchor. P2 has great climbing but the bolts are SHIT! Looks like roofing nails pounded with home made aluminum hangers.

Comments: Hmmmm, seemed not very protectable at the start of the layback arch. I went up about 15ft then traversed across from Open Book skipping the wide part of the layback, seemed like a good call. Then did a wild stemming move to traverse up into Mechanics.

Comments: Climbed the crack finish, would have been runout without my #000 C3! Sundike is the superior finish.

Comments: Sustained? Not really, good rest before the crux. I sewed it up with a purple and red C3. Felt on grade, 10b maybe. A #4 (or was it a #5?) was useful in the first quarter. Interesting succulents in the upper crack!

Comments: Way too much faith is needed in your rubber to gain the first bolt.

I think you were off-route Jim. After clipping the second bolt go straight right for 10ft to gain the 3rd.

Comments: The bolt for the mantle is probably original and looks like it would never hold a fall.

Comments: I have twice now bailed off this thing. First because the initial chimney was insecure and second because I ran out of suitable gear 3/4 up. The gear is all there but I swear I could have used triples of .3 to 1 C4. I used a #4 and #5 as well. Everything is flaring and it certainly doesn't inspire confidence in your moves or gear.

Comments: There's no direct translation V-Scale to YDS. I would imagine the reason is that on TR it feels 5.11+, but way up above pads it's going V6-ish.

Comments: How it was done originally aside, this climb is brilliant! There's an old button head next to a newer bolt that should probably get yanked and patched.

Comments: The pitches have changed over time, my take with a 70m:

-P1 to the chains.
-P2 past the chains to the ledge.
-P3 through the roof past two anchors to a third anchor.
-P4 short pitch to final chains then rap or go up 5.8 pitch.
