Comments: I acually really enjoyed this route. The bolts are so close together you don't need to worry about falling. Also the clips aren't very hard even if 11d is at your limit.

Comments: A few days ago I broke a very solid looking foothold off around the 3rd bolt. Be careful out there and remember to wear a helmet!

Comments: IMO, this climb is much more fun than J Crack and not nearly as painful on the feet!

Comments: How many of these lines have anchors on them? I've read that many of the routes here don't have any anchors and are multipitch, but all of the routes here are single pitch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: Just curious of the current conditions. Would a trip in about 3 weeks be a good idea?

Comments: Do not wander too far left on the face. If you do, like I did, you will likely end up going a really really long ways above the pin before you find gear of any sort. Overall, an awesome, unique pitch that is not to be missed! 4 stars in my book.

Comments: I've heard there is an epic story to Pete's first ascent of this route. I won't try to repeat it since I don't remember the details too well. Anyone?

Comments: One of the sweetest link-ups I've done to date: Grand Giraffe to Italian Arete to Smoke and Mirrors. Just plain AWESOME.

Comments: A #4 is a great piece to have to protect right before you begin the crux roof. This climb is probably the most difficult 10a I've ever attempted.

Comments: Fired the route to the chains last night and definitely cannot agree with the 11+ rating. It is no harder than 5.11a. Also be wary that after you clip the 2nd bolt you are still far from done, even though that is your last pro.

Comments: Awesome route on a beautiful crag! Tried it last night and fell off the last move before it is possible to clip the first bolt and snapped the wire of the small fixed wire about 2/3 the way up the crack. The gear is bomber but took me a lot of effort to place.

Comments: If you have 2 #4s, the bottom half will be a little more secure. Not required, but if this is at your limit, you will be happy to have them.

Comments: 3 very different pitches of tough 5.9. I felt the 3rd pitch was by far the hardest as it is difficult to place gear on the lie back. Awesome route.

Comments: I felt that heel-toeing between the tree and the rock was the most effective method for using the tree since the tree is slippery. Stellar crack and great location as it breaks the hike up into 2 parts.

Comments: If you plan on doing the under cling roof variation on the first pitch be very careful not to get your rope stuck, which I did and had to do some very sketch ball down climbing. Just don't place a piece of gear at the left end of the roof and place a piece a little lower that the roof in the hand crack to the left. The resulting rope drag will suck but it will keep your rope for getting stuck. But very fun pitch with insecure well protected climbing.

Comments: If you are lucky enough to have a perfect weather day, start this climb around 10 or 11 and you will have no trouble with the crowds. Plus, you don't have to wake up early.
