Comments: 5.9+, G, lots of fun.

Certainly easier than wegtables or simple suff.

Comments: Wow. This thing is brutal.
Be very concious of rope drag, the last two roofs are probably much more fun without it.

Comments: I dunno, I found this to be tough. The moves and holds are there but it's real work getting established over that roof.

Comments: Didn't think this was so bad. Two crux's if you keep left on the clean white rock.

Comments: That copperhead is still there as of this morning (6/15).
He hangs out on a small ledge with a tuft of grass sticking out.
He was shedding his skin today so he's only getting bigger....

Comments: Mike- we did some variation, the details of which I don't recall. Sort of the direct, sort of something else. Anyway it was one of my first times at the gunks and i was following the rope... and having a blast.

Comments: Man, what a route. Definitely do it in one pitch. Big smiles, thumping pulse. Made my day.

Comments: Stopped and stood there midway between the overhang and the ground for like 3 minutes dicking around trying to get a micro nut in. Finally gave up and just went to the overhang. After, we watched another party climb it, the leader stopped halfway to the overhang and stood there for like 3 minutes trying to dick in a micro nut before finally giving up and heading upwards... Great little pitch though.

Also- I submit that 'Manly, Yes, But I Like It Too" (which according to the grey Dick is the ar... more >>

Comments: May as well give it a go after doing Simple Suff. A red c3 for a directional at the top of the right-leaning crack is helpful.

Comments: Fun and challenging.

I thought gear was totally fine. Take a BD .75 and smaller with extra small cams and tiny wires and you're good to go.

So- what's a SUFF?

Comments: There's a shoebox sized loose block a little more than half way up, near the second alcove. I marked it with XXX in chalk but that'll wash off so watch out, it's just sitting there looking like a jug. I was doing a lot of thumping on holds before grabbing and there was a bunch of loosy goosey stuff all chalked up. Eeek.

Great route. I combined pitches and used everything I had on me from green c3 to blue c4 and then some. Totally G rated. I was a little curious about the route's reputation for... more >>

Comments: FYI- that little rattly block on the P2 traverse (that always had chalk "X's" on it) is gone.

Comments: That "other" scary loose block near the top is REALLY REALLY loose and it is quite large. I went around it to the left but that thing is very likely going to hurt someone. The block in question is oriented horizontally, around 12-14" tall and 5' or so long. Watch out for it, go around it, don't touch it.

Amazing climbing otherwise. Lots of fun.
