Comments: Super fun climb especially when combining P4 and 5. There are a lot of close together bolts starting pitch 5 over the roof, I recommend bringing a bunch of extendable draws and maybe skipping a couple bolts (maybe even a 48 incher). You CAN lower with a 70m rope back to the belay at the start of pitch 4 no problem with just enough rope to clip into the anchor. I actually enjoyed this more than Solid Gold. Don't let the hero jugs fool you.... P4 is very Eldo-esque. There is a new bolted line left... more >>

Comments: Is it possible to belay at the start of p.4, link 4/5, and lower back down with a 70m?

Comments: This route goes clean no problem, Bring your hooks, RPs, offset cams, and slider nuts and you'll be fine. Pitch 3, 4, 6 I was out of the aiders a good bit free climbing sections. Combine p1-3 and 5-6. Great adventure close to home! Solo 7hrs car to car. 5.9 C2.

Comments: 3 of the bolt placements crossload your biners. Beware.

Comments: Very fun route and great warm up. You really only need a few pieces, medium offset master cams are helpful. 5.10.

Comments: Very fun route! I rope soloed it with only clipping the 2nd bolt on the 2nd pitch. The first pitch is super fun and no need for the bolts, the bolts make it out of character with the rest of the route, but whatever. There are short crux sections with tons of no hands rest and plenty of gear opportunities. A standard rack to a #3 is plenty, but I did find having a set of offset master cams very helpful. Each pitch has different climbing and cool holds (chickenheads, jugs, perfect layback fl... more >>

Comments: Seems like there isn't to much constructive info on this page, so what kind of gear do you need for this?

Comments: The hold you go for at the crux (big move left) snapped on me a few years ago. I was able to do it right after at about the same difficulty. A low commitment boulder problem and a nice place to hangout.

Comments: A short pitch that can be made a bit longer with enjoyable moderate climbing by climbing the small rotten roof behind the tree, once you get to the ledge and follow a left-facing corner/crack to the walk off for stuff like Pony Express.

Comments: If this is the dihedral around the corner of p.1 of Hot Spur, I climbed the first pitch in early 2010 (March?) and called it Machete 5.9. The first bit was really bushy. We continued up a big flake to the pine tree. I'll look for exact date. Fun first pitch though!

Comments: This route was very awesome! We were able to locate the top anchor easily and rap in the whole route, be careful not to miss the anchor in the corner on p3 on the way down, if you do it, it requires some sketchy downclimbing to the anchor. Bring some biners for anchor bolts. We linked p1 & 2 which seemed logical.
The double rack worked well, RPs definitely helped but nothing smaller than a red C3 for cams, a #4 was nice to have.
I thought this route had more like sustained 5.9 climbing wi... more >>

Comments: i agree with above comments if you need to nail on this route you shouldn't be on it... there is NO need to take pins up. offset nuts and offset aliens work great.

Comments: I was on this route yesterday and the big undercling/layback flake flexed one me twice. Beware, it would be a lot of rock coming down on your belayer and the road. If you climb out left of the bolt line (instead of going right to the flake), you can keep it more at the grade and avoid the flake all together.

Comments: i led Stripes many years ago, felt like .10+ for me, maybe harder for shorter climbers. At the top of the seam you can exit right via a mantel onto the ledge where there use to be 2 pins.
