Stoked to be back on Dinner Ledge after my first big wall. Only made it 2.5 pitches past this point on South Face Washington Column, incredible experience nonetheless.

Looking back at the long runout on Pitch 5 or 6 during my first time up Snake Dike. Epic!!

Comments: I think I might have done this line today, believe that I was on North Country. We ended up trundling one of these death blocks, and I never saw any of these blocks with tat which Caughtinside describes. Crux came at a small roof, but again, I really have no idea what I climbed this afternoon.

Comments: There's nothing awkward about this "crux." Honestly, more heady climbing is encountered on the first pitch.

Comments: So Caughtinside describes a third pitch, which my partner and I found to be identical to our second pitch. This is one hell of an adventurous route, accompanied with huge loose blocks, obscure route beta, mossy cracks, lichen-covered smears, loose holds, stout mantels to incredibly bushy ledges, creative route-finding, and one hell of a long "third" pitch. Go try it if you're down for adventure. Stellar route. The only piece of advice that I will pitch forth is this: Don't try to do it in th... more >>

Comments: I believe that Spandex is mistaken with his post. There is nothing difficult on this route, don't bring a #4, there is no dihedral on the second pitch, and there is pretty much only one way to go if you stay on the proper route. Also a stellar free solo.

Comments: The "flaring" nature of this crack doesn't impede gear placement whatsoever. This crack eats gear. If you have trouble finding gear on this route, you've got issues. Great rests on solid hand jams and a solid rest after the first move allow you to place gear pretty much anywhere you like. Solid, amazing route!

Comments: No chips at the start! The first move is definitely there! Just jump for it, grab the crimp and HANG ON! After watching my buddy go for an RP yesterday (with no success, unfortunately), I was inspired to give it a shot. The bottom really isn't too bad, the first move, albeit hard, is only a few feet off the ground, once you find yourself on the huge gray thing, you'd really have to blow it to fall. Clip is easily within reach and a huge rest, which is grand because the climbing is quite sus... more >>

Comments: After years of having wet dreams about this route, I was finally offered a chance to make a push for the summit on my 26th birthday. May 2nd, 2015. The spring is running strong and is the best and coldest water you will ever taste. I promise.

The chimney pitches, specifically pitches 13 and 14, are by far some of the best chimney climbing I have ever experienced and are easily linked with a 60 (we had a 70). Stellar movements mixed with great airy exposure and an absolutely in your face vie... more >>

Comments: First saw the picture, then read the story in the description, then read the comments. It sounds to me like I need to get myself to Colorado. I don't believe any sequence of things I've seen on MP have ever decided my next location like this page has.

Comments: Very uncomfortable belay below P3 if there is more than one party there. Traffic jams really mess this route up bad due to the lack of available belays for numerous parties up top.

Comments: Now having done this climb, I can't really see myself ever repeating it. There are so many better routes at the Leap, and even for people just getting into multi pitch, there are many better options to do if you are venturing out here. Sure, everything is worth doing once, but the climbing was mediocre at best. Still a great day out, though.

Comments: Definitely did not find a lower set of anchors. Led it two days ago and end up running it out from the off width all the way to the top anchors (easy 4th with one chimney section on top). Definitely did not want to do the runout face to the bolt due to a huge fall potential. Set up a TR from top anchors with some descent rope drag. Grunting and suffering are two great techniques to get you through the crux parts.

Comments: Came to it this morning with my buddy, and had the impression that it was going to be a super fun onsight that wouldn't really be too hard after the bulge. Nope. 10b is a total sandbag. I leave the tree as soon as possible, making the move through the bulge at least 10d if not 11a. Super small finger locks exist between the first pocket and the crappy hand that follows (if you dive it directly into the slot). There were a few small things to grab on to, but not much. Climbing is surprising... more >>

Comments: Super fun. If you have a basic understanding of hand and foot jam techniques, this is a great one to test yourself. It's the first tall hand crack you come to at the base of this beautiful chunk of stone. Just lead it, ya dangus!

Comments: Definitely recommend a #4 for the ow up high. Not that it's too techy up there, but gear gets rather sparse and a fall would more than likely result in a collision with the ledge below the stem. Rad route, though! TR'd the finger crack down and to the left today, too.
