Comments: What was it that RR said in the old guide?

'A perfect route for the faint of heart...a bolt at your nose for every crux'

or something like that.

Worked for me :)

Comments: Great stances every 200'! Unfortunately, route was put up on 50m ropes. What would it take?....

Comments: The best way to get to Cramming is to take the trail to Tips and walk the base from there- the alleged eastern trail is more of a shoe-filling dirt escalator through poison oak on a steep, eroding hillside. Other than that, it's great!

Comments: Vastly easier than Butterballs, if that helps yer psyche any.

Comments: It tapers down as you climb it; bring 'em all.

With a 70 and some long slings for the start I think it's a reasonable half-rope pitch.

Comments: It does appear that some of it comes straight outta Reid.

But man, the guy's got an eye with that camera!

Comments: Lemme get this straight:

"pro to 2.5"

"right-leaning offwidth"


Fortunately this discrepancy is obvious enough from the base...

Comments: If you've never seen poison oak before, get someone to show you before you head up for this one.

Comments: If one were to bring, say, 4x #1 Camalots along, one would have both pro for the second pitch and for the anchor at its top. Without this things get a little scrappy, especially since the belay is pretty much fully hanging.

Comments: Thanks Josh T. for taking care of those last 3 bolts- they're bomber now.

Then go check out the relics at the top of the chimney.


Does anyone really think that traverse is .12a?

Comments: We actually climbed a kind of exhilaratingly T-Wall-esque topout variation- rather than going left to the chimney, stayed m/l straight up on exposed arete and facey ledges and stuff. Kinda heads-up, 5.8 or -9.


I emailed Roger Breedlove about the anchor and he basically said "call Jim, it was his show."

Comments: A topout variation to the right avoids the wide via finger-sized laybacking through a series of corners, 5.9.

Rapping with 2 60's is pretty straightforward. Bring a big piece of webbing/cordelette in case the slung boulder on top has been unslung.
