Comments: Finally got on this today. This is not my style and left me feeling slightly insecure in several spots, but I don't think this is any harder than 5.8. You could make it harder no problem, but I think that all the moves are there and it is really well protected. Definitely a route for someone trying to break into this style of climbing.

Comments: Paul and I made it up there today. We added a pin and made the anchor really nice (All together there is a total of 6 pieces of fixed gear). The summit rock is super sugary.

It looks like there were some attempts to free the route since the first ascent....and those attempts will now be a little harder. After the nice edge between the second and third bolt there used to be a really nice knob to grab, well after my fat butt stood on it for about 20 seconds it decided it needed to break off and ... more >>

Comments: Today was the first day I was able to make it back up this after we bolted the first pitch.

This is one of the more fun climbs I have done in the area. The climbing is engaging and stays a little heady with the run outs between bolts.

The 3rd pitch is the money pitch and with calcite build up climbs much like a quartzite/granite crack. The start of the 3rd pitch is run out on easy terrain to the first piece (anything from a .75 to a 1 BD) but then is run out to a bomber bolt. There is potent... more >>

Comments: Did this 11/3/12 and found out that a 9 ft sling is not long enough to girth the neck. I had to extend it with a 2 ft runner. A #4 C4 does fit under the capstone, but a #2 would be a better piece.

If you climb the series of ledges that face Ancient Art you are basically doing a free solo with the only gear worth anything I could find being a questionable .75 C4 towards the backside on the first big sub ledge. If you climb the bigger crack that faces Sundial you can actually get som... more >>

Comments: Kudos to Paul for finding this area and having the will power to haul our butts up there. Double Kudos for the putting the time and effort into funding and installing the hardware.

Comments: The new guide suggests 6-7 2.5 Friends....ya they don't work. #2 BD and #3 Friends work really good. After the roof you can get a pretty good #3 BD placement in a small pod. It takes a little looking to see the placement.

Comments: I would have to say that #3 Friends are the best piece for the crack. #2 BD aren't bad, but they can be a little too tipped our for my taste in soft rock. I agree with the #4 BD and 1-2 #3 BD sized pieces. Great Climb.

Comments: Fun route, great lead with good pro. There is only one small .10a sequence on the route. You have a good piece(#1 Camelot)underneath you so don't sweat it!

Comments: The crux is definitely at the top of the double cracks. Bear hugging a move or two once you reach the finger crack until you reach the jugs seems to be the way to do it. Great route, fun moves.

Comments: Crux is definitely the moves to the chains! This route is one of the best sport routes on Wall Street in my opinion.

Comments: If you have the gas I would recommend combining pitches 3&4. The belay in between is in definite need of a new bolt. My buddy and I just did this on 11/9/08. Great route.

Comments: Finally bagged this one. I used a 2.5F(Friend),2F,3F,3.5F,#6 Nut,4F,4F,4BD,3.5F. The top was a little run out but not bad. A must do trad line in the canyon.

Comments: All I can say is slings! I ran out at just under the flake and the rope drag became atrocious. Even clipping the gear in the hand crack was difficult. Sweet climb though a definite must do.

Comments: Awesome climb. Move quick and avoid the pump. Overhanging exposed climbing with large jugs lead to vertical or less than vertical rock with balancy moves on okay holds. My first .11a.

Comments: I got on this today and all but flashed it. I got to the last hold and hung there forever it seemed like, before falling and putting my belayer's head in my butt.

Comments: This area is seeing a lot of work and has quite a few new routes that all seem to be stellar. Watch for falling rock...I was up here when Andy was bolting and cleaning some of these and there was some serious rock coming down. Highly recommend this area.

Comments: It looked to me like those bolts where old 1/4 inchers for the most part. Are they...and if so should they be replaced? I know it is only 5.6, but if a new leader fell between bolts it could generate quite the fall. Fun route though, highly recommend it.

Comments: I found that the rock quality in the back of the OW was not that great, it seemed to crumble around my cams. However, this could also be that it is just kind of dirty as well. I took 2 #4 Friends and wished I had taken at least 3. Fun route but be careful what way you climb the OW section.
