Comments: Just to reiterate, this climb loses much of its "seriousness" if you carry a #1-3 Ballnut set. Mike M was a Ballnut skeptic before this climb, after solid placements that really cut down on the runouts on the first 2 pitches, he was sold on them.

Comments: Both pro bolts replaced 4/15 with stainless ASCA half inchers. The original bolts had sustained falls and were in bad shape.

Comments: Last anchor on the original free route has been replaced with ASCA half inch stainless and Fixe double ring hangers. The rock is bomber, the bolts are safe. Donate to the ASCA, we'll fix more.

Comments: Wow! What a climb. First and foremost this is a great example of how wrong detractors of Urioste routes are about the consistency of percieved "over bolting" on routes J+J put up. This route is "1980 5.9 hard" aka solid 10-, was put up before cams were on their rack, and is BURLY and completely absent of fixed pro, despite the fact that it would make the first pitch a must-do classic if the upper two pitches of grovel weren't the penalty clause for climbing the beautiful first pitch.

Comments: My understanding is that this was a Flyin' Brian route. If anyone knows what Brian named it or FA details, it'd be a nice thing to post all that here.

Comments: I think the part of your comment that rings true is that you've climbed practically nothing compared to him. I'm guessing you haven't climbed with too many people who are climbing in their 70s-tape, knee pads, trekking poles, comfortable harnesses-many older climbers have figured out ways to protect themselves and make life more comfortable, which aren't in vogue with the 19 gram carabiner-Arc'teryx harness set. I have hope to one day have half the climbing resume that Jorge has. So, yeah, he's ... more >>

Comments: Odd choice not to put chain on the anchor of this one. Looks like a **lot** of hollow rock on this rig. When the upper bit cleans up from traffic, this might be worth a visit. The setting was fantastic-a really pretty spot. One of the best sunset watching spots in Red Rock, based on my stroll out there today.

Comments: Loving the feedback. Wrapper jug above the crimps sounds right, pretty sure I drilled off or that rail feature after the crux move. not sure how that makes her rating 11- and yours 11+, since that hold is after the long move and it felt LONG to a couple 5'10" guys, but regardless glad to see that some NC folks got to enjoy my ground up route! Thanks for posting up, Bruce.

Comments: Interesting that you thought of it as a slab, MN. One of the things I liked about Mavericks was the variety of angles it offered. Glad you liked the climb, I thought the quality on this one is definitely there and it was a blast to put up. The crux throw spit off a bunch of medium height people a few times, I thought that one move felt like V3/4 and with the pump factor 11C was the lowest it was going to get graded by just about anyone. How tall are you, out of curiosity? Thanks for posting up p... more >>
