Comments: I thought the lower pocket pulling and huck for hole below roof on this thing were awesome.

Comments: Haha. Though it might actually make more sense for me to change given my last name doesn't even have a Z in it? That or we could have a highlanderesque showdown (there can only be one) ...

Comments: Agreed with the sandbag, this felt the same difficulty as energy to me...only more painful.

Comments: Might want a stick clip for this one. That or climb Muscle Beach and equip this on the way down. Pretty high first bolt with some non-trivial climbing to reach it.

Comments: That dead thing (we thought it was a mouse) was still in there when we climbed this in about 2011! I laughed when I saw mention of it from 2008. Pretty nasty route as Chris illustrates.

Comments: Cool boulder problem standing up to that "hold". Rock is a little flakey in spots but good stone where you need it. Thanks for throwing hangers back on this one, Derek, and good work on getting it!

Comments: It seemed like a big right hand bump from and to sidepulls or a lock off on the one finger crimp (that Joshua mentions) with the left hand? Thoughts anyone? Either way it felt unpleasant IMO. The rock is still crumbling in places on this one.

Comments: Curious where that broken hold was, anyone know? Whatever the case, this one seems the hardest on the wall in its current state. This one probably has the best rock of the hard routes at this end of Highlander.

Comments: I would give this route 5 stars if it let me. Also I agree the height dependency on the move to the manta ray at least with the stand up method. Maybe an all out lunge if you're shorter than 5'9"?

Comments: Thanks Doug! Funny about the extra bolts...I don't even own a hammer so I'll probably just do what you guys did and keep climbing. But maybe I can track one down somewhere. Depends on what the partners are feeling like while we're out there but I'll be sure to let you know how it goes if I get to try this thing. Sweet looking route.

ps. Is the name because you two are part of the hoofers club?

Comments: Looks like a cool route, I'm just curious what kind of terrain the big run outs are on. From the topo it looks like friction 5.6. Anything more difficult? Thinking about doing this next trip out, but need to return in one piece ;-)

Comments: If anyone knows the FA info, let me know and I'll edit it in.

For what it's worth, my partner and I thought the crux was pretty stout (though brief) for 12b as listed in Bob D's book. Probably somewhere in between Joy Ride and Der Letzte Zug difficulty wise.

Comments: Found: A pair of shoes and a chalk bag. Separate areas, so likely different owners. Let me know if you lost something, and we'll get it back to you.

Comments: We did the full route as one pitch and were pretty certain an 80m line would get you down from the top (though didn't confirm this). Otherwise lower and re-thread at the top of p2... a 70m will take you down from there.

Comments: Cool little crag out and away from the road. It gets decent sun for the winter, and if the ice is thick, you can quickly walk across the river rather than dealing with the tyrol.

Partner and I both thought the 12s on the main (left) wall had significantly better rock than the routes up and right. Excellent place to get a workout on the short, steep face.

On a random note there appears to be a very new (read: shiny) highline anchor just downstream from the tyrol.

Comments: Just a note on the approach...walk further than you would think on the big flat trail before turning uphill. Go past the wall to a noticeable trail heading up hill. It will take you to the right side of the wall.

Comments: Poop conditions are pretty reasonable right now. Mostly it's like 10 feet of easier climbing after the last piton getting set up under the roof and there are non poopy areas that you can use for holds. A little dirty in general through that part but it would clean up with traffic or a good brushing. Once on the roof you're home...er poop-free.
