Comments: Would have lines at the base even at indian creek.

green alien (can be backed up with a blue alien) to protect the bouldery crack at the start. 1 .5 1.75 2 1s 1 #2, 2 4s 2 3s 1 #5, No 6 if you are comfortable on lower angle easy but awkward slanting OW

Comments: Such a great line! On first pitch we took a 10b face past a few pins and bolts. Thought the whole climb was great after that. Last 10c face pitch has incredible edging.

Comments: I agree with J. Albert's comments and corrections. Also last pitch had 2 bolts and it was about 65ft or so, not a 100.
Face moves to the first bolt on p 6 were not bad and clipping it wasn't that hard, but a fall there could be bad. I liked this route. Would give it 3.2 stars. I think pitch 8 could have a direct (harder) line to the anchors, instead of all the traversing.

Comments: Did you guys do the mantel from a semi unstable flake by any chance? That seemed pretty awkward/scary to me. Wonder if there is an obvious way to get around that..
The rock on this route is not like West Ridge that's for sure. But what can you expect from a pile like Laurel? It is not granite. But I thought the position, the original sandy rock, and the knife-edge ridge up there were pretty cool. I don't think I will go back, but only because there is SO MUCH more to do in the Sierra. What an a... more >>

Comments: 2nd OW pitch seemed significantly harder than the first (stellar splitter). Pitch 9 seemed like an 11b with scary chock-stones to me. Wild step across to the belay.

Comments: This fingercrack is fierce. Sharp but has good locks. The business is not very long, but placing pro on the hard part is not easy. 11c seems like a fair rating. Not harder than Butterballs (not as long as sustained but sharper), and definitely not harder than Pinky Paralysis in Yosemite. I think PP is an 11d and these two 11c, with Rostrum fingercrack an 11b. But since fingercracks depend on person’s finger size this rant is useless. GREAT CLIMB, WORTH REPEATING!

Comments: Rack. Set of nuts. Set of Metolious offset cams, Double set of cams from blue metolious to #4BD Camalot (be ready to walk the 4 for a long time too). Triples in .75/1/.5 are awesome to have. No hooks/camhooks were used..

Comments: The description does sound similar, but the line drawn in the guidebook goes right, while our route goes up (descriptions could sound similar for any climbs, it's the visual line drawn by the team that makes sense the most- to me at least). Even in high snow year there are parts that are too steep to keep snow. Whatever the case is, we are claiming we did the first ICE ascent of the route :) If someone is looking to avoid that neve climbing and wants to get on some steeper water ice, this is a g... more >>

Comments: Thank you. My real name is not really Toby ;) But this is a cool, semi-remote alpine route. Tests your route finding on approach, different crack climbing skills, and has only 1 line on the whole formation! Hope those who come after us do their lines ground up as well.

Comments: Bring a #6 and you will be much happier and safer unless you are a OW guru. I did not have a #6 and did not feel safe trying to push my single tipping out #5 up (which was basically useless and would not take any kind of fall higher up). Cool route, lots of choss.

Comments: This is hilarious. On the Bugaboo page Beckey Chouinard is given a grade IV and W ridge of Pigeon is a grade IV. Super funny.

This one is awesome. Took me and my friend 40 minutes to go up and down. B-C took us about 13 hours on route.

Comments: That short, easy, unprotected section has been one of the routes defining character building characteristics since it was first lead in boots in 1969.


Not every climb has to be 'enjoyable' and safe. If you want it to be that, stay at the gym, or sport climb. If this climb is altered, it will take away from the experience.

5.9 5.6R is correct.
