Comments: This climb is only a tad harder than Hank's Lunge. If you know the beta, it's not sandbagged at all.

Comments: All the routes at Torture Chamber have names and grades already.

There is a route on Horsetooth Mountain already called Straight Out of the Horse's Mouth put up in the '90s by the great Craig Luebben.

I would suggest that both of you remove your additions to Torture Chamber.

If you're going to add routes to MP, then at least reference the proper resources. Horan's guide has detailed info about the Torture Chamber or you may contact anyone on the NC3 Board.

Comments: What is the proper finish for this climb? Does this line move diagonally up and left once you're at the jug system (after crux), or does it move directly up the pegmatite band to a bolt with a short traverse to the anchors?

Comments: I have 2 anchors set up at the moment for my return to pull the old gear. Please respect them and leave them behind if you climb this route. You'll more than likely rap off them when you get to the third pitch anyways.

There is a anchor made of nuts at the top of P1. Also there is a rap anchor with a locker on the P2 bolt hangers. Both are equalized with a section of climbing rope.

Comments: This was originally done as an aid route that was established somewhere in the '70s. In one my photos, you can see the pitons and Stardrives still. They would avoid the first pitch wide crack by climbing the corner 20 yards to the north and traverse into the roof.

I have yet to remove the pins and Stardrives from the roof but plan on doing so very soon.
