Comments: Ben;....from what I gather...the "real" FA went up the chimney......THEN up the face.........We took a line to the left up the bucketed face, and placed bolts. I guess this was too close (and actually joined) the original route......so the bottom bolts were chopped. You can still do the original climb...and we even placed a bolt or two up higher.....and an anchor, which may or may not still be there.........

Comments: Talked to Bill Cramer this AM;.....he says that he is fine with his 5.7 X climb being made into a cool, safe lead, especially by someone doing it up on the lead on hooks with a hand drill, and who didn't know it had been done before as, more or less, a solo. (Bill said one reason it was done this way was probably because they were out of bolts!).... This route has the FA team's blessing, and I personally will go out soon to do this climb;....looks like fun! Good one!.....

Comments: I wish I had your (and Miramontes) talents;...but unfortunately;...I have to climb the route first before I call it crap......which, as you can imagine, has me climbing one "steamer" after another.......(it's a vicious and sad cycle;........)......when will it end........(I CAN rate climbs after I have done them with 100% acuracy;....never been wrong on a rating yet;......THAT is something many find amazing....).....

Comments: What happened in 1989....stays in 1989.....(is that how it works?).....I remember the crux section, took us multiple tries......and finally someone cracked it on the lead....then we all followed w/no falls or hangs......sounds like it needs some "modernization".......Aaron Miller;...thanks for the update, and good job on the send.

Comments: Tradaholic...I agree;..and I did the FA of the climb;....we did the climb...didn't think much of it..and then moved on to something else....seemed like "just another climb" to us at the time;...I'm not sure where all the stars came from.........thanks for keeping it real......two stars max.........(I also think our original rating was 5.10b too.....it got harder and grew stars over the years, I guess...)..but this was all 25 years ago;...I could have it al... more >>

Comments: Toby is a great great climb;....but it doesn't get done so much because you have to scramble about 5 minutes over to the base......it is harder and the moves are thin too;....it's awesome.

Comments: OK..I'll give it 5.10d.....that big hold at the lip was a foothold;..not a handhold;......so when it broke off, it made the climb easier;......didn't sucker people into grabbing it anymore....(so now that it is in fact, easier;...it's probably 5.10b?.....)..
