Comments: Ben is right on this route is super rad and the jump will gain you tons of street cred!

Don't even bother with Bloom's book beta.

Comments: All the raps are now bomb dot com with some hardware donated by the ASCA and some out of pocket it's all beefy 1/2" bolts so you can avoid rapping off flexing drilled angles!

Comments: Dang I'm bummed I missed the rant, heard it was a good one.

Just was feeling sassy when I posted it and was bummed the name was taken, turns out I skimped on the research.

It's certainly chossy below the belay on the first pitch and that's a bummer since the second pitch is such a fun moderate OW.

Devin, you'll have to check out the new route you saw me on, it's pretty bitchin'.

Comments: Bloom gave this the straight .12 in his new guide book, classic Bloom move.

Comments: Several bolts that were in the worst shape have been replaced, though the old studs still need to be removed if anyone has a steel chisel, I'd be happy to do it myself.

What do you folks think of replacing the first bolt with the mangled hanger? If it were replaced ,the draw when clipped would not hang over that hand hold and could potentially alter how the route climbs, is this nit picky or a legit concern?

Comments: There are 2 fixed nuts and a knot (double overhand I reckon) for the first pitch belay although yellow aliens are still a good idea to back these up. gets pretty thin off that belay

Comments: Seemed like the last moves on the 3rd pitch (we ended just before the short 5.8 runout arete/face climbing) were the hardest technical moves at solid .12. Rest of the climb was super bitchin'

Comments: Any beta on the twin tips cracks between wild works of fire and IHC? book says .10 but felt a whole lot closer to .12?

Comments: I'd differ on the gear a bit, maybe 3x.3's 1x.4 (or orange metolius), 3x.75's 2x1's and a #3 camalot.

Stellar climb!

Comments: Chains on one of the bolts are a bit wimpy and could stand to be beefed up, not greatest anchor at the creek, nor the worst.

Comments: The sandstone routes get better bolted the harder they get, expect to be placing knots and threads on more moderate grades but I would highly recommend checking it out!

Comments: Xander, you should get after it, man. I did it yesterday, and it was pretty rad. We added another bolt down low and hope to add another up high today (the hole is drilled). Still some run out up top but no ledge potential, and it's maybe 5.5.

Comments: Hey does anyone know what the routes are to the right of cube steaks? there's a varied corner that is fairly thin, i think in the book it's 10- and then there are 2 others a bit further down, one i think is splitter fingers and the other goes up a ramp and runs from .5's to good hands with a #5 pod at the top and has a 2nd 11+ pitch that's thin through a roof.

Comments: as a lead clipping the anchors is very difficult as it's quite the reach from a tips jam, just TR this thing off of Tube steaks.

Comments: i took 2 #4, 2#5, 1 #1,2,3 and it was a little run out at the top. More fun and a bit harder if you jam the crack OW style.

Comments: Haha Ya, I was just giving Skyeler shit. I cried and cheated my way up it. The real ascent will come when the weather clears along with a couple other routes up there. You should give it a go Matt if you feel you're up to it. It's pretty rad, I'll give the FA a little bit of credit (but not so much that his ego would become over-inflated).

Comments: Sounds and looks unappealing. Why leave the death blocks? If trundling is not an option, why bolt choss?
