Comments: Nice route.Starts with four bolts, then I used #o-1(c3) for the first gear placement out left midway between bolt and first large roof/block. Then a couple more (Camalot c4).5-3.5 will protect the upper section well.
Fun to toprope Left side corner and face although they are a bit dirty.

Comments: We were able to link Pitches 1&2 with a 70 meter rope. We also shifted the belay over on top of pitch 2 and Linked pitches 3&4. From the top of pitch 5 we rapped w/ 2 70M ropes to pitch 3 anchors, then 1 more rap to the gully you started the climb in.(requires some down climbing 20ft')
I lost my wedding ring at the base of Supe Slide or Trial by Fire. Its a silver ring, let me know if you find it. Thanks

Comments: This climb is right of Babble On, and before Suds. There is another bolted route between Makayla's and Suds.
8 or 9 bolts optional 2 pieces .5"-1".
Use a 70 meter rope if doing the full pitch. Or stop after 6-7 bolts at an anchor.

Comments: Easily done in one pitch with a 70'. The rap also went well with a single 70'.

Comments: First pitch has loose stones at the belay, be careful. Really great second pitch, widened up to #5 camalot. We did the rap with one 70' that left us on a chossy ledge with an easy move to the ground.
