Comments: The rockfall was creation-induced. Artificial selection.

Comments: Fun route that you should do. The dusty feet through the layback section make things seem exciting, but my feet never slipped.

Comments: OK, exhumed the old guidebook. Dean and I did this in February 1997. Avoiding the weekend crowds, hence the name. One star.

Comments: A tiny but exciting topout option on the *bonus pitches*:

After the first two 'out-of-character' up & right junk pitches, one arrives on a big ledge hunting for a 5.9 corner on the mini-headwall. Instead of the 5.9 corner, walk right on the big ledge about 40' past the juniper tree to find a squarish wall of immaculate and well-featured brown stone. Climb a 30' left-leaning, thin crack with just enough pro to keep you going. 5.10 and slightly steep. After this, continue up ledgy/wandery junk... more >>

Comments: For some reason, my much stronger climbing buddies stayed off this one on the sharp end, allowing me to make the first actual lead. Thanks, fellas!

Comments: I liked 'Walk of Shame', but that's a lot of name for a 20-foot variation.

Comments: Homies are actually visible in this shot if you know where to look, on the topout pitch.

Comments: It's in the guidebook. If you look north and a bit W from the Pass, up and across the tundra the Instant Karma crag stands out as the only decent-looking chunk of rock on the hillside. Has a handful of slightly grungy alpine splitters that would benefit from increased traffic. ~45 minute approach, depending on your conditioning (it's at 12K+ feet). One rope. No fixed anchors.

Comments: Yeah, people have only been climbing these things for about 50 years on hexes and stoppers. If you can get yourself up there, you'll probably work it out.

Comments: Called 'Find Shade" according to the Jay Smith topo in my old Rock and Ice. We climbed it on a cooler day, but I like the name.

Comments: As a 5.11AO I thought this was well worth doing- cool moves, scenic, thoughtful. The stemming section is desperate and insecure- nice work Mason! Way above my pay grade.

Comments: Fun route, more in the rockaneering vein with a few cruxes here and there. Probably the best way to scope the DNB walk-off if you're concerned about 'on sighting' it in the dark. You are unlikely to wait in line for this one.

Me and another non-superhero got an 11am start in October and managed to get to the descent chimney by nightfall, so I think Grade V is a little much.

Comments: Didn't realize this was on the Civil Wall. Nonetheless, the less commemoration of murderous racists the better, in my book. And I'm from Georgia.
