Comments: Most of the comments are spot on. Unless you got big bros skip the off width and head through the chimney until you get to a crack on the left. Great climbing in the chimney and good gear.

Comments: Climbed this route yesterday and here on my thoughts: C1 pitch wasn't bad, wishing I had more offset stoppers, and really glad I had brought the blue ballnut because it was the only thing that fit at the skinny section. Also once the aiding is done I had to commit to probably the scariest mantle of my life as the holds were disintegrating below me, as well as there is only one drilled angle at the top of the pitch. The start of the chimney is pretty burly, and for the finger crack, I was very gl... more >>

Comments: Fun climbing great gear all the way. Sticking in the chimney with you feet on the face makes for very secure climbing the whole way, but I was a little nervous at the end making the reach to clip the anchor.

Comments: Fun climbing, short cruxy sections, but never sustained. Climbed this in 3 pitches, big thanks for putting this up!

Comments: Best not fall at the crux moves, used nothing bigger than .75

Comments: Fun climb, went out left after the the first crack then belayed from the eye bolts and climbed the upper section. The initial crack has bomber stopper placements, then on the upper section anywhere from a #0.3 Camalot to a 3. I only brought along one 3 but would have been happy with another for the wide section just before the bolts. The Arkansas guide calls the first crack Don's Delight, which is 8+ and the dihedral on the second pitch 9+.

Comments: Great route 3 stars for sure. Medium to small stoppers on the slab then clip the bolt and either run it out to the chains or get a small cam in the corner.

Comments: Great climb, blue-red Mastercams are nice and a #1 C4 for the finishing moves.

Comments: Gear between the 1st and 2nd bolt can be tricky. My buddies shoved a blue TCU in the small crack on top of the shelf, but I opted for good horizontal crack way out left on the wall. Either way a double length runner is very useful in that section. Overall pretty fun climbing.

Comments: Fun liebacking but gets a bit pumpy towards the top with strenuous clip.

Comments: Alot of the rock on this is pretty hallow. I placed a blue master cam just before heading out right to the last moves

Comments: fun route with good exposure and easy climbing. Saw what was the chockstone on p1 but ended up making a 3 piece bomber gear anchor just below the big fin on the right. We ended using a #3 for the p2 going up the layback section before the big ledge

Comments: Great little climb, going up the middle face you can either keep left with bolt or head right which was a bit easier, but it makes for difficult clips.

Comments: Fun route with good holds. Also had two people do their first leads on it today, follow the center line for a challenge or head out right for easy climbing. Also around mid-way up there is a good-sized flake that's really hollow and will move if pulled on, it's best to avoid it.

Comments: Pretty scary experience today up at the falls. While a buddy of mine was hiking on top of the ridge to accesses the anchor, I was underneath the cliffs to right of the falls and he ended up letting loose a huge wind slab that triggered the slope below. Before I had a chance to run, I got swept up and was carried around 60ft downhill and was completely buried. Luckily I had several people right there, and they had my head unburied in under a minute. BE CAREFUL when accessing the trees at the top ... more >>

Comments: really fun climb with a good mixture of holds on really steep slightly overhanging climbing, but it defiantly gets you a really good pump going. Pretty sure the route was put up not to long ago but I would be wary of the cordelette at the anchor when lowering . Tough Schist also says 11a

Comments: this description pretty much sums it up, tricky moves getting out of the roof but good holds. Defiantly a bit awkward but a good pumpy route, wouldn't be great to TR, we had quite a hard time just pulling the rope after leading

Comments: start is a little tricky then solid pockets to the chains. And the bolt at the top is sticky out quite a bit so best not to fall
