Comments: Well, I liked this one too for the first 15 feet until I decked and broke my ankle in 3 places. Watch out for the opening moves and place early and often. I placed a bomber hex and #6 bd nut that held great. The problem, I didn't place when I had the chance at 15' up. A lesson to all leaders who get lazy with an easy grade such as this one. Awkward 5.8+.

Comments: Definitely a must do before your Josh days are over.It was three or four 5.6 moves once on the ledge for me. The mantle and standing up is the mental crux as the top is sloping downward. Bring a camera.

Comments: This rock is a good hour hike/scramble from the Wonderland Parking Area. Worth the time to climb if in the area. This and other far flung Wonderland destinations are probably better done as a short backpacking trip on a weekend instead of a day hike.

Comments: I enjoyed this one. A way better lead for the expereince I think, but then I have only led it. Like mentioned above its a bit interesting stepping off the ledge into the crux. Definitely worth the hike.

Bring a couple quickdraws and a sling for the chicken head. Thats all you need so its a light and fast one.

Comments: This route wasn't so bad if you like wide rotten cracks. I for one hate wide rotten cracks so I was glad to pass the lead to my partner. I would say this route is a good warm up to Tossed Green or on your way to the White Cliffs of Dover.

Comments: I disagre with this being a "safte lead". You are faced with the choice of either running out an easy but steep ramp about 20 feet off the deck, or a wide low angle hard to protect chimney/offwidth to reach the corner.

Otherwise, the climbing is solid and if a full pitch would be a super classic route. Leave the small stuff on the deck as you will only want 2" and higher for this one.

Comments: Yack, I did this thing on 2nd and wished I was on lead. Make sure your partner places the same as you otherwise you will be wishing for some other fate as you try to pull pro at the crux.

Overall, a good climb but stay away if you don't like chimneys as the one at the top is strenous getting in and out.

Comments: I have leapt the chasm. Not recommended.

I would say this has maybe two 5.8 moves at the roof and then a rather short 5.6/5.7 crack. Fun route with good moves.

Comments: This thing ate so much gear I was sorry to see it come to an end. I think I placed 11 pieces and 9 of them nuts. Stellar climb, probably best saved for a less busy weekday if you have the chance as I did.

Comments: Who hasn't done this route? Either way, its a good climb. I think I've done it 6 times or so over the years.

Comments: Be careful to protect the horizontals and have your belayer stand close to the rock during this section. I think the initial 15 feet and the last 10 feet are the cruxes.

Comments: I can't figure out this one either. It was ok, but it crack is flared and I wouldn't lead it. I TR'ed it after leading Little Rock Candy Crack just to the right. Easier than it looks, but wouldn't gear up all that good. I would recommend a TR up if you are in the area.

Comments: This thing is better as a solo than a lead. There are ok gear placements higher up but a fall wouldn't be pretty from any part due to all the ledges. Good thing the climbing is really easy.
