Comments: Anyone know what the top half of this pitch goes free at above the anchor chains? Fought my way through the stem box (TR, felt .11+?), but the first moves off the anchor felt extra burly. Ended up just starting this by standing on the anchor bolts, after that the climbing was great!

Cramer gives it 5.10 C1/2.

Comments: Protects fine if you can spare the time to fiddle with gear. You can place a .5 C4 down low, and a black and green Alien up high, the rest will provide plenty of creative nut placements.

Had one of those freak sunny hail storms start up before the first crux, wetting my holds, and giving me the opportunity to test out what proved to be adequate gear.

Oh, and don't forget to hop onto Crossing the Delaware with your Pants Down afterward. Bring a .3/.4 C4 for this ultra fine climb.

Comments: Smooth sailing to crux, which felt hard to me, though short. Harder than any moves on Frogs in Space. The two bail nuts below the crux seem to agree... I didn't have a problem with gear, pop in a couple small pieces below the overhang and power through. Anyhow, still a fun route!

Comments: I'll second the 4th pitch being enjoyable. The gear goes, and you can pop in a solid nut before the crux moves.

Comments: Stunning line thats very intimidating from the base. Second pitch is a 11a finger crack followed by some 10- liebacking into a fun finger traverse and up a slab that leads you to the top. Also a great pitch! Bring small gear, two ropes and/or a bunch of long slings, the second pitch is longer then it would seem. I ran out of runners and had one rope, and paid the price with some horrendous drag. Full value!

Comments: Great route! Crux is easy, the second bolt is unnessacery. I felt the real challenge of the climb landed in the second pitch, maybe that's just me though. After pitch 4 we unroped and traveled up the easy fifth to the pitch 8 belay. The eighth pitch is excellent, along with the twin cracks on 9. The 5.6 lie back is a definite sandbag, but also fun.

If you have the time and patience, we jammed a nut cutting straight up where p4 starts (not recommended), there's a cam and a nut jammed deep in th... more >>

Comments: Fun route with an airy 4th pitch. Went up an exciting variation on the last pitch that went out right past a piton, under a roof with a crack in the back. Seemed 5.9ish? Anyone know anything about it? You can link the last two pitches this way.

Also, it seems like starting on "A Song & A Prayer" to the right, up to the ledge would be a better way to start the route.
