Comments: Lead this on 2/20/15.

Suggested rack:
doubles .4-#3 C4 with a few small pieces. I placed a .2 and .3 x4
I brought a rack of nuts and only really placed 1 just so I can say I used it. So if you don't want to bring extra gear I'd just leave it at home.

Have your cordalette slung into a quad before you start the climb. 4 pitches have bolted belays with the 5th pitch the only one needing an anchor. the scramble pitch can be combined with the last pitch to the top...I opted to do the last ... more >>

Comments: TRed this last week and bolts are no longer button heads. Good lead if you get clean. I suck at slab so I failed misreably

Comments: belayed my friend on this and C Miller is spot on. Easily can break an ankle if you fall after pulling the roof and not being able to clip next bolt. Also left ankle can easily get stuck behind rope d/t movement of passing bolt at the crux move. be careful leading this thing

Comments: Per topo, the climber above is at the suggested belay. He told me to make one slightly lower. It worked just as well

Comments: Went up there August 27-29. Vlad is right, there was a small stream/water hole about 100 feet below the camp site for good water.

Climbed Sunspot Dihedral August 28 and saw Peter Croft, David Nettle and another guy putting up a new Route to the Right of Sunspot. It was my first trip up there and Peter Croft was the one that inspired me to go there. I can't believe I was climbing right underneath him and had Nettle rapping next to me while watching me climb his route. Anyways, look out for anoth... more >>

Comments: Climbed this 8-28-14 with Nelson Day. Got a green alien stuck on pitch 4 or 5, so good luck on the new owner.

We followed the Topo Luke Stefurak posted except a few differences.

At the end of pitch 2, I built a belay about 15 feet short of what was suggested. Another party was ahead of us and said the semi hanging belay sucked and be better to built a belay a little lower. I built my belay after the 5.9 pillar past the 2 bolt anchors on the huge ledge. More comfortable that way.

I wouldn't re... more >>

Comments: doing this route next month. I'm about 5'6, is the traverse to the hand crack pretty height dependent?

Comments: If you build a belay about 15 ft up higher than this location you can make it to the very top with a 70m rope (barely reaches)

Comments: double rack .4-3 with nut (save at least 1 #2 for anchor up top if not belaying from tree

Using a 70 meter I didn't belay from the shaded tree way in the back on the top of the pitch. I built a belay halfway from the edge to the tree so I can go back and hear my partner (wife). Crack needs .5-2 for anchor
