Comments: This line reminds me of that ol' saying: Short people climb, tall people reach.

Def. sandbagged (the 5.9 Mother Grendel just to the left felt a full grade EASIER, and it was wet...). Def. an ankle breaker, too, if'n you blow a couple of the crux clips. I'm tall so had no problems, but my short(er) partner had a real nasty time of it inna couple of places.

Comments: Let's try this: hung July of 2015, the long draws dangling off the roof section are mine.

PUHL-EEZE feel free to clip 'em. Just don't strip 'em.

When I pull 'em, I'll pull this comment.

Comments: Very ugly, rotten rock at that B3/B4 traverse. I recommend moving left and low under all that bullshittery to the obvious match jug, then humping over the bulge from there. (All that becomes clear when you get there.) It's a pumpier move for sure, but it's basically top-rope protected from the easy bolt you can clip, AND it'll save someone's brain as that rotten shit is starting to wedge loose like-ah bad tooth....

Comments: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAaaaaa... The smarmality continues!

So? Yeah...DOOO bring a few runners with you on this one; the line does wander quite a bit for just a handful of bolts. Also, my partner yesterday (Aug. 2, 2015) yanked off a chunk of mountain about the size of a prenatal horse. So be extra careful on these lines and wear plate armor....

Still, the line is probably worth doin'--if just the once.

Comments: And it goes without saying (or maybe it doesn't, so I'll say it here), try to tread the snow as much as you can to the base. The alpine tundra at this elevation is shockingly fragile, and just a few careless footfalls can leave indelible, scarring impressions. It's that leave-no-trace ethics, thing, right? More than just that Cliff Bar wrapper.

Oh...and don't forget yer glacier glasses! See-ya on the peaks....

Comments: Uhhhhmmmm, look. To be sure, simul-rapping is, like, more complex and shit than single repelling. Sure. Maybe like on the order of, say, using a spoon to spread peanut butter when you forgot all your knives. It's SA-LIGHTLY more complex, yes. But we're not talking about cold fusion here.

In fact, simul-rapping is a perfectly awesome, wholesome, easy-to-set-up and easy-to-use system that can shave gobs of not-drinking-a-beer time off your day.

Comments: Fun, gutsy, one-move 11- wonder.

SPOILER ALERT! Ape arms help; if you got 'em, use 'em. All that liberally-chalked, intermediate bullshit is best left untouched. Grabbeth thy mighty underclings, lock that core down, and windmill your right hand up--all tha way up--for glory. Match, and indeed, cut loose. (Freeing the feet comes naturally. It worked well for me long before having read this description.)

A word about the bolting, though. I call this one "gutsy" not because the falls w... more >>

Comments: Some of the absolute worse gear I've ever climbed above.

Some of the absolute best moves across stone I've ever enjoyed.

Not for the feint of heart, true. But for the bold or the reckless or both, this line is a must, must do. (And for those with monkey arms, this will likely feel like it's clocking in at 9+)

you can manufacture a 10a outta this and go for the full pucker factor by simply skipping the crux clip...
