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.

Comments: If a "R" rating is applied when the climbing "isn't hard but if you blow it you could deck" the whole damn park would be "R". The point being that this isn't a sport climb and when doing ground up stuff anywhere you should expect parts where blowing it isn't an option.

"R" nowadays doesn't mean run-out, it indicates a seriousness of the lead, with movie ratings; PG-13, R, X.

This whole "R"=Run-out thing has to die.

Comments: This thing is way past it's prime, pretty polished at this point and sketchy at the start. If you have a purple X4, it will plug the pocket right at the crux, good luck.

Comments: Nobody said anything about that little solo to the first gear! .1 or .2 X4 was helpful at the 2nd pitch crux. From the bolted belay I climbed up to clip the bolt then back down for the traverse.

Comments: With modern micro gear you can sew this up, without plug the pods after using them, bomber .3 C4.

Of course, a super route with good rests, use them.
