Comments: despite previous comments and beta on the web, if you do the NC with a single 60m rope you can rappel Kor Ingalls without a problem. Also I feel like a #5 protecting the OW crux is a good idea if you are not a crack climber.

Comments: The first move is a little nervy and that seemed to be the only "slick holds". regardless they are big feet. great finger movement through the middle section. if this was 5 times longer it would be an indian creek mega classic. The routes above it seemed fun too.

Comments: I did this as my first ever basalt climb yesterday (just moved from Colorado). I was impressed in the quality of movement and variety of holds and positions. If you are tall, add a grade and skip the obvious rest on top of the huge ledge. fire straight up the head wall for a fun runout above a bomber #2. I didnt feel greasy and the rock was of fine quality. Lots of high feet!!

Comments: A. Sucker Punch?, mid 11 climbing to tough dyno to the anchors... easily cheated through. Insecure second clip.

B. Standing Eight Count, easy 11 with GREAT sequence...classic if it was longer.

C. Contender Direct?, easy 11 great holds, great sequence if only it was longer as well.

D. Contender?, lichen/ choss.

E. First Round, mid 10. If you don't overgrip the incut crimps, it's an ok warm up. No real need for gear. Easy top, clean fall.

Comments: Just wondering if the FA was done on all gear and the bolt was added later by someone else? If so, then why?

Comments: There is now a lot of very very loose rocks/boulders along the approach to the top tier because of the rescue yesterday. BE CAREFUL
