Comments: Straight through the roof is heinous and harder than most Bocan 13as. Maybe a hold broke?

Comments: Wow. Do I suck at wide cracks (very likely), or is this hard for 5.10? I've felt way better on "harder" routes in Eldo (Art's Spar, Northcutt, T2, Genesis, Sunset, and Practice Wall all come to mind).

Impressively difficult, impressively awesome.

Comments: Didn't feel like a bucket to me! Nice work on the all-gear send, Scott.

Comments: I did this right after successfully redpointing Guenese (11a). I felt this to be a tad harder, maybe due to the residual pump of Guenese, but maybe not. Great route regardless.

Comments: Stellar route. Psyched you got on it Amir!.. we must have missed each other by only a day or so. To clarify, the fixed line on the ledge that facilitates rapping with a 60m is still there. The fixed line by the waterfall (indicated in the new guidebook) is gone. Be prepared to do some other shenanigans to get up there.

Edit to add: This is one of the best free climbing routes i've ever done. Don't be intimidated by the grade or length. Bolted anchors and lots of bolts throughout make it quick ... more >>

Comments: I climbed P2 around noon yesterday. I encountered 2 or 3 wasps when I climbed it, but while I was lowered I noticed 8-10 near a crucial finger lock. The guy who got on it earlier said that he saw very few wasps. This leads me to believe that they're more active later in the day, so get on this thing early!

Comments: This wouldn't happen to be named after a Franz Kafka story of the same title, would it?

Comments: There is no longer a fixed wire above the last bolt... it came out under body weight. Oops!

Fun route. Gear at the top is very small.

Comments: Retrobolting is lame, but there there was once apparently a really scary accident here, and once you do it, you see why. If you don't approve of the retrobolting or just feel like making this scary, then don't clip the bolts - talk about nuts of steel.

Comments: Climbed this with a 70m today and turned the first 5 pitches into 3 by stretching the rope each pitch. It's a really fast way to do it. We arrived at Yellow Wall Bivy Ledge at 9:15 and summited Long's well before noon.

Comments: The new guidebook for Boulder Canyon (Wolverine Publishing) gives this a 5.9 rating, which I generally agree with. For comparison, use the OW on pitch three of Central Pillar of Frenzy in Yosemite. It's signicantly easier (same size, but lower angle) and rated 5.8. (This is relevant if you consider Yosemite's routes and their ratings a benchmark).

Comments: P2 is great. The gear is all there, and additionally there are some new shiny bolts to protect the slab moves. Fun route.
