My first woody, which I built my second season in Boulder. Habitat Apartments, property managers would never allow this these days. I called it the Outback Wall. Peppered with Straight Up holds.

Comments: If you all are referring to the clip in the middle of the headwall, it's dead easy from the good crimp out left near the arete. No reason to clip it from the bad slot in the crack. 11c/d hanging the draws. 11b/c with them already hung. Interesting movement the entire way. Bullet the Brown Cloud is less sustained, although the crux move is much harder at about 11+. 11a/b for BTBC is way off the mark.

Comments: Grade-inconsistency is definitely a thing at Table. Fwiw, I opted for going left to the rail, instead of staying on the arete. The latter felt contrived. I missed no holds and found this pitch solid at about 11d. Interesting boulder problem crux.

Comments: Fun pitch, although nowhere near 5.11. More like low-end 5.10. The ratings at this crag are all over the place.

Comments: Using the stems down low felt more natural than the contrived path suggested here. Climbing this pitch using everything within easy reach weighs in at about 11a/b, imo. I'd give it 3 stars, on gear, using the dihedral.

Comments: I remember this being a very fun route. It felt like 12a, although easier than Gym Arete, which might be a sandbag for the area.

Comments: Not going to mince words in saying that I oppose permadraws on a route like LD. Hanging draws on this rig is a breeze. I've done it several times. Moreover, having permadraws prohibits the ability of hanging draws for a traditional onsight, which still matters to some climbers. Convenience draws are best suited for gyms and steep, dry, cave-routes which are otherwise a major undertaking to equip. I own expensive Petzl Spirits for a reason, and I don't want to be forced into using permadraws beca... more >>

Comments: The Gri Gri is the vetted and preferred device for sport climbing, for obvious reasons to any seasoned sport-belayer. That said, never release the brake-end of the rope without first cinching it off with a Mule Knot. Any sudden shift in body-position can release enough pressure from the Gri Gri's cam to allow slippage, potentially dropping the climber onto a ledge or the ground. No bueno.

The beauty of the Gri Gri is in that the cam takes the weight off of the belayer's arm, allowing climbers t... more >>

Comments: This route, imo, is more deserving of 3 stars than 2. The movement is very good, and several of the holds, which keep this pitch at the lower end of 5.11, are hard to see. Much harder to onsight than redpoint.

The only reachy clip, for me at 6' tall, is #4, which isn't reachy at all if you climb onto the smaller holds out right to clip it. The route wanders among hidden holds, so stay relaxed, look around, and know that there is always a good hold where you need it. The final headwall abo... more >>
