Comments: Not misleading at all. Find a "good" crack and follow it. Can't and won't detail out every nuance of a climb. It's called route finding for a reason and we didn't have any trouble, even as new 5.8 leaders.

This climb, IMO, is more about the raw alpine nature of it and beautiful setting. Yes, the climbing in the LP cirque is better quality, but this is worth it if you want some solitude and something different...

Comments: This is THE way to get to the El Chollo finger crack. Makes for more sustained and varied climbing. Gotta go back and send!

Great find! Amazing that a line like this was sitting there unclimbed until 2012...

Comments: Just read Craig's comment on my photo of the notch and it appears that you truly are on the left side setting up a rap instead of hiking down, which must not have been possible at that time...

Comments: Wow, this photo makes this crack appear so much better looking than the view from straight on. Makes it look like an Indian Creek crack... Good work on the shot.

Comments: Very creative for an otherwise chossy butt shot. I'm talking about the composition not the unrealistic depth of field...

Comments: Rock quality is good, and the climbing is varied and consistent at the grade. Great route that had me grinning for a while after! There is only one place that will take your #4, so dig deep...

Comments: Sorry about the missing piton, it is now my souvenir. You wouldn't have wanted to fall, or take on it anyway, trust me!

Comments: The news of this new bolt is disappointing... I admit to have considered setting up some rappel stations somewhere on the wall, with the FA consent of course, to avoid the dangerous hike down. But a lone bolt!? What are people thinking?! Did they honestly place it on lead because they couldn't get any gear, or did they lower to place it? So many questions with only possible ridiculous answers!

Comments: heh, I started on the crack to the right but soon realized that it was becoming more than 5.7! Good climb...

Comments: Pitch 1 by itself is one of the steepest (and funnest IMO) 9's in the canyon. But definately a 9+. Might feel like a 10- if your not in your game.

Comments: Great Route. It might be blasphemy to say this but I liked the 4th pitch a bit more even than the Zion Curtain!!! (gasp). Do as Boissal recommends and make sure you save at least a number 2 for the roof. Also put on a long runner. After you have gone around the roof move on to the slab and go to the right of the tree(there is another hand crack directly below the tree) and flip the rope over the top of the roof rather than around it. Run it out to the anchors if you can or you may be lowerin... more >>

Comments: The offwidth takes a nice armbar, and by time your feet hit the off-width section you have some crimpers and then the thin hand crack. 1st offwidth section I've ever done that didn't amount to alot of groveling and cursing (coincidentally it was also my 1st offwidth on a sandstone crack). It was actually enjoyable, believe it or not!

And yes, the corner crack is available if you absolutely need it...

Comments: Sounds like it is recommended for the first few moves to use the arete to the left. TR'd this today and only used the arete for the first move off of the ledge. Does continuing to use the arete make it much easier? If so I would buy the 10- grade. Cool moves either way.

Comments: This route is not too runout any more (just a little between bolts 1 and 2 on the easiest slab section). It has, I believe, 7 bolts (not sure when they were added). A #2 cam is deemed prudent for the starting moves. excellent line, especially near the top from the crux to the last bolt! (last 4 bolts)
