Comments: The top of this is sugar snow over steep kitty litter right now. I'd wait for a little more snow before doing it.

Comments: Hey Brett, I was on the route on 7/3, and it was pretty dry. Maybe it rained the night before you got on it?

Comments: Climbed this with Adam, once you're above the last bolt the route trends slightly right on the better looking holds. I went left at first and got into an area where it was clear people had been pulling off chunks of rock. Not a great place to be when you're going to hit the deck if a hold breaks.

Comments: ^Joseph,

There are no eyebolts on this route. There is a nest of webbing at the end of the third pitch traverse, but that's the only fixed anchor I can remember. If you've done much climbing, you shouldn't have trouble building an anchor at the end of any of the pitches.

Comments: Pretty sweet route. On the approach the fixed rope is currently there for the descent and in decent shape. I tried combining the last two pitches using a single rope and got stopped by some heinous rope drag. It might have worked with double ropes but I would advise against it with only a single. Also, the summit register was gone, maybe the next party could bring up a spare nalgene?

Comments: Didn't realize the bolts end after the roof and ended up climbing quite a ways with no pro. Bring some small cams!

Comments: If you're trying to get from 3 to 1 with two 60's be careful! The anchor is right at the end of the 60's and it wouldn't be hard to go off the ends of the ropes if you forgot to tie knots.

Comments: Climbed this one a couple days ago and didn't notice anything too loose at the bottom of changing corners. The loose flake on the pitch after the enduro is still there though. It makes an interesting, almost metallic sound when you hit it.

Comments: Climbed this today and did not have a #6 BD like Tommy recommended. It would have been nice to have right off the deck!

Comments: Climbed this yesterday. The infamous snow mushroom forced us around to the right into some tough terrain. Topped out before two which made us think that this isn't quite a grade IV route.

Comments: Well put Timmy, I've only been making the drive to the creek for the last four years but seeing the parking lot was a bit hard for me. Then I have to think back to Ed Abby's time when the road to the needles wasn't even paved and we all just have to come to terms with the fact that change is inevitable.

Comments: Second best climb and desert summit I've been on (still can't beat Lightning Bolt Cracks although this comes super close). I couldn't believe how tall this tower was!

Comments: I found CFK to be a lot harder. The bulge on the "2nd pitch" is tricky until you do it a couple of times, then it is mellow yellow.

Comments: To those who have climbed this route. At the headwall there is a crack that splits the middle of the face. The standard rout follows a crack system that goes to the left of this. The crack that splits the face is called loves lust(???) I think and it goes at 10+. Has anybody done this? It looks great and I am heading back there to repeat this route and want to try this. Any information is appreciated.
