Comments: Thought I was on Jig's Up, but apparently was not. Was on the wide crack just to the right of the hand cracks that make up the route. The wide crack was a little too big for my fist, but I have smaller hands than most guys. Two or three #3 cams could be used; I walked my only #3 once. Still enjoyed it. Went to the 3rd pitch of Steort's after the wide crack.

Comments: I felt there was more thin hands than just in the beginning of the first pitch. The offwidth second pitch trends to the right going across the face, giving an overhang feel which made it much more difficult than we thought it would be. 3rd pitch pretty much goes straight up past one bolt, then head up the really low angle but sandy feeling slab to the ~6ft vertical section and take a few steps to the right to the path of least resistance, unless I missed something. This is where (about half way ... more >>

Comments: Pro is great throughout. Takes nuts really well, I just take too long placing them still so I end up using more cams than nuts. Belay at the chains, not the trees. The tress are more comfortable, and I belayed there. Then I re-read the comments and saw the comment about the chains being added since the formerly slung tree (which I didn't use that one) was getting damaged. So I f'd up on my part. Two people easily stand comfortably at those chains.

Comments: We rappelled from the last belay station below the ramp. First rappel was straight down for about 50ft to a 2-bolt anchor on a good sized ledge. On the second rappel, stay climber's right of the huge boulder/block, and there is a 3-bolt anchor maybe 5ft climber's right and immediately climber's left of a bunch of trees; this rappel is close to 100ft as I had about 15-20ft left using a 70m and puts you on a ~1ft wide ledge. Third and last rappel is about 60ft or so.

The second rappe... more >>

Comments: I think it is a good intro to the cirque since it's short enough and easy enough to get to. That first pitch (5.8 dihedral) is pretty short. The second pitch zig-zagged on ledgey stuff most of the way. To get to it, find the top rap station on Pete's Staircase. You're kind of in a left facing corner. Climb that corner (thin flakes forming wide cracks) and mantle up on top to that nice ledge with slings on two pitons. Peek over the block and there's another nice ledge at the base of the dihedral ... more >>

Comments: Great climb! My first trad lead. P1 is super short. We just linked P1 and P2 together. Was a party of 3...the belay station at the top of P2 was cramped, but was super fun just to hang out on a vertical face. Great views with the sun setting. Biggest cam I used was a #1, there are places for a 2 and maybe a 3 towards the end of P2.
