Comments: Excellent route up great rock. Fun moves and cleaning up nicely. Bring those micro cams for the beginning of the second pitch...Dont be dissuaded by the rotten looking begining of this climb.

Comments: I would like to contribute to the rating argument. Just to stir the waters...But really, If bushwack crack is 5.8 how can this climb be 5.9+? Must be the grease factor on bushwack that makes it feel harder than sasquatch..

Comments: It is probably worth mentioning, you can set up a really solid gear belay at the bottom of this climb IE directly in the corner before the traverse to the top of pitch 1 of green adjective. There are ample opportunities to set gear and establish a well equalized three to four piece anchor. This helps to alleviate the rope drag issues that have been mentioned in the above comments.

Comments: I would agree, this feels harder than black monday to me. Fun moves over a steep roof to a long reach to better holds...This one gets the adrenaline flowin...

Comments: Really fun climb with a wide variety of techniques. There is a really nice rest at the top of the finger crack in the chimney sort of thing. As with any new routes, Watch the rock on the upper part of this route. It is cleaning up day by day but there is some really loose and very large rock just waiting to come off. Pulled off a 15" by 15" piece the other day. Pretty glad I was wearing my helmet that day...

Comments: This crack is so cool...It would be a shame to have the climb ruined by the scrub oak coming back. Nice work on this route, it is my favorite in the area.

Comments: I have to agree about that nut placement. The placement itself seems pretty solid but the rock seems a little bit suspect to me. It is a pretty commiting with so so feet..after that it eases up quite a bit. I thought the move going from hatchet to Lizzie was a bit awkward as well. This route follows more of a seam than a crack on the lower section. Thus the gear is a little more challenging.

Comments: I have been thinking about this argument quite a bit. When I first started climbing I felt that there was no reason for anyone to create an R or X route. However, as I climb more and get myself on some of these routes I find myself liking them more and more. I do not necessarily like putting myself in danger but I love the satisfaction of overcoming my mind and working through routes such as these. When I look back on my most memorable routes a good deal of them are R or X rated climbs. The runo... more >>

Comments: I think that this climb deserves at least 2 stars. I really enjoyed it. The begining is quite easy but the climb gets more difficult at the roof. The roof is quite challenging until the proper holds are found, then a fun chimney sequence follows, lastly you will pull another roof by a rather awkward move to get around the corner to the anchors. This really should get climbed more often than it does. Great climb to introduce climbers to some unique techniques.

Comments: If you like the green a you will love this climb. This is the green a on steroids. The climb stays fun the entire way and the upper crack eases up considerably. This climb definately favors those climbers with small fingers.

Comments: The Second pitch right side variation is a very worthwile climb with some really cool moves and great protection. Definately do this second pitch. Features really cool dihedral climbing with a variety of techniques used. Rock is very good on the right side.

Comments: I was around when dave budge was climbing this route. My partner and I were on stifflers mom when we heard what sounded like an avalanche.I have never seen such an enormous amount of rock fall. Definately dont linger at the base.

Comments: Thoroughly enjoyed this climb. Took a number 4 camalot and kept trying to save it for further up the climb. Climbed the whole thing without using the number 4 and felt very well protected. There are some bomber nut placements as the flake ends and you get up towards the wider section near the top of the climb.

Comments: Seemed much easier than 5.10 to me. Maybe 5.8+. Be interested in a second opinion on that. Fun route though and a great place for beginers to top rope (bring trad gear to set up top rope)

Comments: This line is great!! It is worth doing this climb just for the sequence of moves on the upper slab. Definately do the slab moves to the third bolt!! The moves are all there with the correct foot sequence.

Comments: This is a great line for aspiring 5.9 leaders. There are ample opportunities to place gear wether cams or nuts. It takes both equally well. Just get up on it. Definately a classic hands/fingers climb!!

Comments: Good climb. A little funky getting to that second bolt. There are a plethora of approaches used to pass it. I used a weird side pull on the north side of the arete. My partner just reached way up there and grabbed a high hold on the arete. Either way, its a mighty fine climb. Suggest backing up first bolt with blue metolius.

Comments: This climb should see more action. It is a great climb! It actually protects very well, you just have to look a little harder for the placements and use some longer runners. Mostly small cams and nuts (RP size) only one set of nuts is necessary. Small (thin crack) placements but all are bomber. Dont let the R rating scare you away.

Comments: This is a route not to be missed. We did the rappel using two 60 meter ropes. This will allow you to rappel past the first set of ancbors you come to. At the third set of chains make a short rappell then from the next set of chains you can rappel past the next set of anchors and be on the ground.

Comments: Very fun route. It is a very long climb (by sport climbing standards) and you will need a 70 meter rope to lower all the way back down to where you're belayer is. A 60 meter will land you on top of the pedestal climbers left of the start. A cool mantle type move at the beginning and some cool thinner moves toward the end. Have Fun!!
