From the belay it is hard to see that there is a good section of slab at the top. Where I am is the starting of the slab.

Interesting movement. I need to get the clips dialed. You have 4 bolts right in a row of each other, not spaced very far apart, yet I do not believe all are necessary. They are however useful if you n

Long reach but you have good feet. I feel that this is where the route really starts about V4-V6 bouldering moves from here on out. Can't cop out any more full rest stances.

Comments: The 9+ rating is spot on for a climb of this style. I thought getting through the thin hands to the chimney pod was the most mentally challenging for myself but was surprisingly protectable. I brought singles up to a #1 Camalot and doubles in #2- #6 Camalots and an extra #5 Wild Country. This thing would take a lot of #5s if you were so inclined.

Comments: I thought this thing was great! I brought some nuts, single 1 and 2, two #3s, two #4s, BD #5, WC #5, BD #6, and WC #6. I think I placed everything but the 3s and the BD #6. Sure, the gear was overkill (probably can protect with smaller gear), but I knew nothing about the climb. I will never turn down a chance to get in some wide crack and practice jamming, armbarring, and heel toe cams. How else are you supposed to practice? This thing was a fun romp wit... more >>

Comments: I really enjoy linking pitches 1 and 2, but I do have to agree it is probably not best for a new/ beginner leader. I have linked pitches one and two twice now without placing anything near or by the sick flake (not sure why one would place anything in the sick flake), but once the flake is surmounted and one is under the dihedral if everything is slung correctly and the the rope drag is minimal, it makes for and amazing pitch of free climbing. I tried to get my GF to lead this thinking it would ... more >>

Comments: This a short, good, quality climb with a short crux. I opted to stay slightly left and hit a pinch and then up to the rail and continued to cross over along the rail to the mantle. The position of the bolts are right were you need them.

Comments: Did this climb for the first time on Friday and thought it was amazing! Regarding gear on the last pitch. Not sure where I would have placed a 3 or a 3.5 to protect the crux. This also seems more of an overhanging face climb under the lip and only required jamming closer to the lip/ exiting the lip. A red X4 was my first piece, and a blue Alien seemed to fit perfectly in the thin crack to the left. There is a fixed ball nut that I lowered on, because I left my slings on the ledge...(DOH!!!). I t... more >>

Comments: My buddy and I did this route in 2 pitches. Linking the final pitches was maze-like, and I am not sure how well it would have protected a fall, but it made the whole process go a lot faster. If I remember correctly, we rappelled off the opposite side down Beef Eater. I thought this was a quality OW and was surprised to find that there was little written about in on MP. I think bringing either singles up to a six or bring 2 fives if you got em'. Six protect the opening OW well while still allowin... more >>
