Comments: I think this more in the air voyage sector as it is down the hill. I

it is a fun splitter finger crack that splits the wall.

Comments: compare this to excavation at the minimum and you don't really have a comparison on quality and grade. I didn't really like many lines at Pipeline and this may be the 'best' one.

Both excavation and angry inch are "classic 11c" climbs but the minimum is good climbing and this climb seems to be like you did a crux and clip the chains as it's over in a minute. I agree with 60 ft being generous and it being about 45 ft. Otherwise you have a really tall and somewhat consistant V0/V1. If you can ov... more >>

Comments: A couple of forgetful Canadians here: we may have forgot a pair of black yoga pants at the last site before the end of OK corral. If you find them and would not mind mailing them to a US or Canadian address we will pay shipping. We are already in Jackson and cannot turn back really due to time constraints. If it has been eaten by a bear already I hope the bear enjoys it.

Comments: Things that we are learning from ten sleep:

1. we wish we knew the order of the cliffs at Valhalla, FCR and Mondo (umbrella areas that are not well sorted on MP). This could be done in MP which would be great for visiting climbers. Obviously the new book will solve this issue. Or if MP sorts the crags better.

Slavery approach obviously leads to slavery wall and near is left towards world domination/Antarctica/metropolis and right towards dreamland/chaos.

Gate approach goes to FCR and Valhall... more >>

Comments: Good climbing with some long distance between bolts. For the 5.6 leader i would consider doing this carefully as a fall would be bad. Generally cruxes aren't too far from bolts but this can be sandy.

for the 5.9 leader this is not a PG13 climb as you should feel solid on everything. But don't try falling.

Comments: Good route. Dogged it a bit today to figure out the moves (first go, may not have time to try it again on this trip).

This is a rope eater though. I fell multiple times on the 2nd crux (worsening pockets to a sharp 2 finger and around a groove). Don't think i got it bang on for that but my rope has 2 meters less due to drag, core was showing. Was using long draws. Any advice?

Comments: onsights with pre placed draws are onsights in hard sport. just because you can't do it doesn't make it not an onsight. placing the draw is secondary.

Comments: good climbing with huge jugs throughout. a 0.5 C4 or a good nut protects the removed bolt portion. maybe removing the 1 bolt beta from the page would be good since there is none anymore.

Comments: really tough crux and right side is really lose so couldn't use it. had to do some sort of gaston move with a crimp/finger crack. the crack is pretty dirty again so bring your nut tool.
