Comments: Odd that The Nose is a free climb with several free ascents and is listed here as an aid route. Out of respect for Lynn's enormous effort to free the route, and also for those who have freed it since, The Nose should be recorded here as what it is (5.14a). It is no longer an aid route, regardless of how many people pull on the gear to get up it.

Comments: I'm not as strong as when I did these routes, although Sinopia feels right up there with The Beast, Captain Crunch, Terminal, and a few other consensus 13a pitches. It feels harder than Nevermore and The Monument. 12c is silly. Lucid Dreaming is 12c, and Sinopia is significantly harder. Regardless, it's worth the hike up there.

Comments: I don't doubt you, Greg, although I flash consensus V5-6 pretty consistently, and this felt nowhere near that easy. I must have missed some key beta. It is pretty easy all the way to what felt like two burly moves on a micro-crimp, a nothing-sloper, and crap for feet, and then it eases way up on the top-out.

Comments: Classic problem. Maybe something broke, because this is not V6. More like solid V7. The crux feels harder than Valhalla and Girlfriend's Backside, unless I'm missing something.

Comments: Props to Joe Crotty for replacing some old, manky bolts on CC, on Sunday, 3/29/2015.

Comments: An easy fix is to use long draws, which would hang below the actual Mussy Hooks, et al.

Comments: The other two pics have the Mussys, This one is meant to show the simplicity of going from tr to rap. I'll take redundancy any day. Stuff fails. It's the nature of the beast.

Comments: I one-hung this route too many times before redpointing it, years ago, because I did not like the idea of whipping on those old bolts. I recently took a friend to it, and the new bolts inspire a lot more confidence. Thanks for the upgrade on my all-time favorite sport route.

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.
