Comments: It actually sucks, Nick. Wet, dirty, loose, all that stuff. The whole 'Art' fetish is just a big conspiracy of sandbaggers trying to get other people to live the horror that they suffered through.

Comments: Yeah, pro to 3". And shirts are aid. As are high-tops and long pants. Sure thing, Blitzo!

You heard it from the man himself, folks. Stitch it up!

Comments: This route's reputation for loose rock is a bit behind the times. You can find it, but the only time I felt like there was loose stuff of consequence was when we were dragging our bags across the bottom of the Cyclops' Eye with a party 1500' below. The adventuresome feel comes more from the wandering line and frequent switching between free and aid climbing amidst the vast architecture of the North America feature. And from the detritus of 40+ years of ascents- there's some funky old stuff up... more >>

Comments: It doesn't have to be 'fun', to be fun, right?

What was truly not that great was watching Mama Bear introducing her cub to the joy of pack-raiding at the base as we sorted helplessly through our tangled rap lines. Probably best to hang your gear a few pieces up on the off chance you've ever kept food in there.

Comments: Consider climbing the North Buttress (using George's excellent description!) to familiarize yourself with the Kat Walk descent if you're at all uncertain of your ability to complete this route in daylight- that one goes a lot faster. With climbers above, I wouldn't hang out at the base of Middle Rock in the evening if you paid me...that sh#t is loose!

Comments: I really dug this one- definitely worth seeking out.

Perhaps the first ascentionists would be amenable to moving their (strangely placed mid-pitch) anchor to the top of the corner...it doesn't make any sense where it is, and the topout is nothing special.

Pro is abundant throughout the corner.

Comments: A bunch of big nuts would really keep your rack light and bomber on this routes' knobby, convergent flakes. Hardly any small ones, though.

Comments: That approach trail plunges straight down the fall line and will eventually turn into a washed-out gully. It needs to get moved to the lower-angled, rockier terrain to the east beneath Super Chicken.

'boy, those 5 bolts look pretty sketchy...I better add a sixth."
