Comments: can someone please get some pictures put up of this route; it is too good a route to not have pictures up on here. people coming from out of state may want a harder way up than the conn diagonal but easier than the 10's and 11's and this route would fit the bill. it is classic imo and has a ton of variety and should not be missed if you're breaking into the 5.9/5.10 grade on trad. (i say that b/c although this is 5.8 the first pitch is certainly 5.8++ and is not gimme, it is sustained ... more >>

Comments: I agree with the previous post. There is a single 5.7 move on the second pitch if you're shorter and I always felt like going up the quartz waterfall on the approach had a single move or two not in the 5.4 range.

Comments: This was put up by Manel Casanova presumably on solo lead. Here's a link to a picture and description which lists it as 5.8 A2, mountainproject.com/v/10768283.... You guys might have gotten an FFA. I climbed Smear Campaign with Manel two years back, he was trying to solo lead and couldn't make any more progress and I was bouldering without a partner so it turned out to be a fun day and win win for both of us. He mentioned the route (Susie's Garden) and told me someone had chopped some bolts... more >>


Location: SD : Spearfish Canyon : Sunshine

Comments: The parking for sunshine is 1.2 miles east of cheyenne crossing on google maps. The description of driving 26 miles into the caynon is if you are coming from I-90 and Spearfish. I prefer (if coming from rapid City) to take the exit at sturgis and go through deadwood/lead which will take you to cheyenne crossing. from here it is 1.1/1.2 miles. if you zoom on google maps you'll see the lot with a two track driveway on the SE side leading over a bridge. look even more closely on the north side of t... more >>

Comments: last i checked camping is allowed, they have an outhouse and specific tent slabs/spots that they recently installed. no campfires is the regular in the hills though.

Comments: I wouldn't want anyone to get into hot water over such an awesome shot so I'll retract my statement and say it looks like it was taken from a helicopter*

Comments: You most likely climbed Shagrat, 5.10+ FA Paul Muehl and Pete DeLannoy 7/10/83. It's listed as being on the middle/north side of Carchost.

Comments: the start is bouldery indeed and not 10a... might have been at some point and it's ok to mark this as 10a to keep with the history of the route but anywhere else or if the start of the climb was the finish of the climb it'd easily be 10b/c if not harder.

Comments: don't let feriss' comment stop you from getting on this. it's a super fun and solid 5.10 and was not as gritty as a lot of the other routes at redwing tend to be. muscle moves down low and fun climbing up top.

Comments: again, middle earth is a complicated area and it usually takes me awhile to find what I'm looking for. I hope this helps. Please let me know if any formations are incorrectly labeled as this is from memory and general route descriptions on this site.

Comments: this should clear any confusion. sorry for the small size, but you can zoom in on it and then look at the picture posted by kirtis labeled "approximate route" to see the features better.

Comments: "Pretty straight forward problem to the right of Lady Fingers. Short hardest part would be the mantle."To the left of Lady Fingers a few feet." ... i would assume this is to the left of lady fingers?

Comments: Less is more on durrance due to the chimney and off-width parts. a set of bd nuts 4-13, a set of bd c4 cams from 0.5 to 3, and a couple of long slings is perfect. although not necessary, a bd c4 #4 can be placed on almost every pitch and is nice to have if this is your first route on the tower.

Comments: 10- seems legit for an onsight lead, 9 or 9+ is more appropriate if you have beta and know where you're going (aka hidden holds)

Comments: There's a climb that goes up a two stage arete to a face located 180degrees behind PLD. It has about 11-12 black bolts and is 5.7-5.8ish. I believe this photo was taken from the top of that climb...

Comments: 80 feet is a rough guess, at 12 bolts this is probably the longest route in VC, 60m is plenty.
