Comments: The trick for me was getting high feet and dropping my right knee into the dihedral.

Comments: You are correct Christian, Black Monday is the line of chalked up holds to the right of the climber.

Comments: Yes, I have climbed it. It just looks different than I remember it. The coloration of the rock appears to be different, although maybe that is just the photo itself. And I had thought Redtail was further around the corner of Morning Glory Spire. I don't remember it being visible from Fall Line (Look at this photo as an example: www.mountainproject.com/v/107287547 ).

Like I said, I could be mistaken, and if you're sure, you're sure. I don't claim to be an expert on the area or anything :... more >>

Comments: This photo is submitted under "Fall Line .10b" on the Morning Glory Spire at City of Rocks. I could be mistaken, but I'm pretty sure this is not Fall Line.

Comments: Did this climb yesterday, and we were a little thrown off by the third pitch. After the first 3 bolts there was an unexpected runout on easy climbing. It was nothing really dangerous, but it wasn't mentioned in the book. It wouldn't hurt to have another bolt somewhere in there.

The bouldery start of P3 on the big flake definitely made the climb for me! I would also recommend continuing up to the Skyline anchors and rapping from there.

Comments: As I was climbing straight up this I was thinking, "I'm making this a lot harder than it has to be..." I'm glad there are other MPers who agree!

As far as the chains are concerned, they seemed fine to me, although I didn't really give them a careful analysis.

Comments: Definitely gets thin! Felt harder than .10a to me, but maybe that's just because of the exposure. By far one of the coolest rock faces I've ever layed eyes on!

Comments: As a taller climber I found this route to be pretty stout. Moving up the crux past the bolt required some weird back-step & knee-drop action. My shorter partners just stemmed up without too much hassle.

Comments: A high friction-y stance with my left hand in the under cling allowed me to reach for the chalked up jug above the roof with my right hand. A few decent pinches for the left hand and more high feet made pulling the roof pretty simple. Great hand and foot jamming up the crack, with some face features along the way. Fun route!

Comments: As Derek said, pretty new to trad. Got a handful of trad climbs under our belts, but MAN when that rain came whipping down, and my only option was to keep going up or leave 6 pieces on the wall... Not my idea of a good time.

That aside, it was great watching Derek climb before the rain started, and I can appreciate the appeal of the climb. Just don't do it in the rain!

Comments: I think it's worth mentioning that the three bolts directly below Glass Ocean are not part of Glass Ocean. They are Left and Right Tributaries, and are rated 5.10d/5.11a.

Glass Ocean shares the same starting bolts as Northwest Passage, then takes a jog to the right at the ledge.

I suspect people don't realize this when attempting Glass Ocean, hence the comments about difficulty at the beginning.

Comments: Doesn't look like much from below, but when you get up on the route, there's a lot of fun to be had. You're super exposed, kind of dangling from this roof system, which is way fun, but the holds are all where you need them and are consistently positive.

If you are in the area, make sure to give this one a shot!

Comments: Thin and fun!

If you climb left of the three bolts, it's this climb, and if you climb right of the same bolts, it's Right Tributary.

Comments: Did this today, and it was a blast! Started out below on Left Tributary (5.10d/5.11a) then continued up Glass Ocean.

There are a few slightly run out bits, but it's never on anything really difficult, so I wouldn't stress it :)

Also, as of today all the bolts were indeed there.

Comments: The first move is pretty beefy, getting over that roof. I hooked a heel on the right side, then pulled up to the chalked up hold near the second bolt. My partner found a high toe jib that suited him well.

Comments: Great climb, pulling the upper roof is definitely the crux. Go big, you're well protected!

Comments: I did the first pitch a few times right after this route was set. I seem to remember there being a few odd clips (weight is shifted one way, the clip is an arm's length out the other way >.<), but nothing really bad. Sounds like a few of these issues may have been resolved, anyways.

It's a fun climb, just make sure you can lead before you try it :P

Comments: Nice and easy, did it for my first ever trad climb. The start is pretty goofy, especially if you are on the shorter side. All in all a very safe and simple climb. Great if you wanna top rope Touch of Teflon just around the corner, as they share anchors. Careful not to get the rope caught when you moving over though!
