Comments: As of 7.09.12, the bird's nest has newborns in the vertical crack below the roof. Please take care and climb around them or climb another route.

Comments: As already stated, this route is short, but definitely worth while. I felt the crux was harder than the given rating of 5.7 with small/tricky protection. That being said, the moves are all there and was a fun climb.

Comments: Climbed the first pitch of Recon to the base of the overhang. Seems like the best combination for two fantastic moderate pitches. Eliminates the Traverses of both routes, which is nice.

Comments: If compared to other 5.8s (Stout Blue Vein) in the area, the opening moves are much harder. The route mellows after the second bolt, becoming closer to a 5.8 in difficulty.

Comments: Andy,
The only thing I left behind was a big log with rocks stacked around it - no tat or rings, just rapped straight off the log. I was joking when I said it was a "bomber anchor." Sorry if I missed the trail on my first time in the area - won't happen again, it was getting dark and starting to snow.

Comments: On the descent, installed new "bomber" rap anchor in between tree rappels.... Look for the Fixed Log!

Comments: Decent climb, but the protection is not obvious and the crux moves were tricky to protect. Novice leaders at the grade should think about TRing before placing pro on lead.

Comments: Good line - Protection not always obvious, used a #1 BD out to the right with a 4' runner to protect the final moves to hangers.

Comments: If you average the moves in between the third and fourth bolt (5.9ish) with the rest of the climb (5.5ish) you get a 5.8 - Fun route wish it had more 5.8ish moves.

Comments: Climbed the Overflow/JLI on 03.07.09

The Cave on the left Side of the Flow has formed into a steep curtain (WI3+) and the ice was completely leadable.

The right hand side has thinned considerably and is very pocketed from so many steps - think surface of a golf ball.

Comments: Climbed the Scottish Gully/Bowling Alley on 01.03.09. The ice was blue and thick, but was brittle in sections. The curtain to the right of the gully was well traveled and very stepped out, but still very climbable.

Comments: So far I have climbed this route three times - Each time proceeding a different way up the gully. I am not sure that the route's description gives it enough credit. I have been able to consistently place enough protection on each of the pitches...The belays are good and there are several trees, ledges and adequate placements to construct safe anchors.
The best way to access the ridge is at the top of the gully where the ground meets. Great moves from a solid belay (2 trees) allow you to access t... more >>
