Comments: I've always liked combining the first two pitches, using the 2nd pitch belay that is in the book's topo as the first belay. I have always gotten to the top in two.

Comments: I like the 2nd pitch of Dave's over jam crack. Better and more sustained climbing... some pro can be found. And with the line of bolts to the left, I really like clipping the bolt and turning the overlap/ roof to get to the ledge.

Comments: A very short-lived pain in the ass. This is my normal start to Snakes or Consolation. Care should be taken to avoid knocking loose stuff off, but that's Tahquitz...

Comments: I guess if you want a paint by numbers approach... but I still don't see a whole lot of "original" material on this page.

Comments: Combining pitches 2 and 3 makes for a better second pitch. If you do the Stairway to Heaven variation, clip the belay with long slings and keep going. If doing the 5.8 2nd pitch, no need to go to the belay bolts, just keep on trucking to the base of Price of Fear.

Comments: I can't think of too many places a #4 is really needed, and definitely not a #5. there is always a spot nearby that a #3 would work just fine. the first pitch is different character and gear than second pitch. the original pitches are rather short too, so you really don't need extra gear to combine the 2 pitches. just a normal rack for more normal length pitches.

a 60m rope will just work fine... barely... if your knot is just right...

Comments: I can't believe that it has taken this long to get this route on mtn project. It will be interesting to see if it increases traffic on the route. The Price of Fear is quite fun and not as bad as the name suggests...

Comments: this part of the corner is not 5.9. it is just fun crack climbing. if you are not a proficient crack climber it will feel harder than it really is.

Comments: just finish this route with the Price of Fear pitch, you won't be disappointed. and if you were looking for a little more full value climbing on super pooper, this is the way to top out. i don't understand why folks still go the original way...

Comments: pick a hot, mid summer, monsoonal moisture day if you want to turn this into a surprisingly hard climb!

Comments: how old is this picture? the following rule has been in force for quite some time now.

They [pets] must be on a leash at all times and cannot be more than 100 feet from a road, picnic area, or campground; they are prohibited from trails,

Comments: although it is not often done, it is a smart idea to give all pins a good hammering before falling on them. those on tahquitz go through tremendous temperature/ weather changes throughout the year and tend to need a good beating, especially after winter.

if planning on doing routes like this, or etude, its a good idea to carry a hammer up the hill...

not sure on the bolting idea. green arch should definitely retain as much of its original flavor as possible. no riff-raff should be climbing... more >>

Comments: this is a good route that i use to do whenever in the area. last time there, the 2 bolts were super sketchy! and in no way would you want to fall from above the 2nd bolt.

but if the old bolts were replaced, it is "equipped" just fine; just happens to not be another clip up. with thought and care White Rabbit can be quite fun to climb...

definitely not a bomb! unless of course you expect bolts every 5 feet.

Comments: if you dont mind thin conditions, and more rock than ice, this climb is fun most winters.
