Comments: Stellar. One of the best routes in its grade in all of Red Rock.

Comments: For fans of Prince of Darkness that may be wanting an abbreviated, craggy, one-pitch, version of it.

Comments: One of the more serious climbs this mortal fool has done in this grade, anywhere. Fantastic climbing, but far from a 'safe outing' for the typical fakebadass 5.10 leader like myself....

Comments: Great route and not to be missed. I have always been lucky to be the first party of the day getting on it by walking in from the road at 4:20 am instead of waiting for the gate to be opened and then racing around the loop road competing with the others to get to the parking lot first. Another great trick is to recconoiter it first one day by hiking in and stashing packs and gear near the base and then doing the hike in the next morning mostly unemcumbered and getting a good early start with mo... more >>

Comments: One of the great single pitch 5.10's, like the best of the Gunks routes in this grade, packing a LOT of varied climbing into one sustained half-rope length of pure rock climbing ecstasy.

Comments: It felt that the crux was the lower bulge with some bouldery moves but the roof is definitely not without its own set of charms...falls are relatively safe though with bomber gear there if one does decide to log some air time..

Comments: Great route. One of my favorites in Pine Creek....not to be missed by a confident 5.10 leader and hardly ever a wait during peak times....

Comments: Great route that rewards small fingers at the crux "slot". Good gear, no reason to get hurt, but some spicy moves above the crux make for a good heart pumper. A lesser-gem that is a must-do for the 5.10 Red Rock leader. Only one rope is needed to get down. One rap to the first pitch anchor on Shadows then another short rtap into the stream.....

Comments: I found 4" pieces were helpful in the upper "grunt" section of the chimney. Is every route of this face of the Old Woman a test piece? Prepare for a challenging climb in the grade.

Comments: There were some cheater stones on the ledge at the base of the dihedral last I did the climb. Great route, really tricky getting started in the dihedral, but well protected all the way.

Comments: Just did this route again last weekend after not having been on it for more than five years. The bottom (chimney/offwidth)was a little harder than I remember!, but gears up nice. A compelling natural line that has a little bit of everything on it to enjoy.
