Comments: "16 photos of a short V1? Picking and choosing a few good photos is a lost art."

I happen to know Mark lewis, and he is actually a very... very good photographer. Find something else to complain about... if you don't want to look at all 16, then don't. It is that simple. Being polite and supportive, apparently is a lost art.

Comments: Seems pretty soft over all... i agree with the v3/4 move down low... after that, it is 5.9 climbing... bolt spacing makes it a bit spicy... i certainly wouldn't want to blow a clip anywhere on this route... it is a fun route regardless of grade!! No one should change this route in the least! keep it how it is...

Comments: Good Description. Crux is for sure the top two or three moves pulling the small roof... Find the beta that works for you... the crux probably goes at v2 at the most... possibly the easiest 12a tick in the canyon... if you are a solid 5.10 leader, you should be able to work this one into submission. Great fun... the standard warm up for the area...

Comments: I am not 100% sure, but i have been up there a lot... love it, but i seem to think that the route right of Algorithm is not a project... Not sure what it is, so i could be wrong, but i have heard it is a pretty good 12c or d (???)...

Comments: This is a superb line. Have not got the redpoint on it yet (tore my miniscus hoping over the lip after the long reach)... but concerning the last clip, i too, thought it was pretty difficult... i think it would be way easier (and safe) to skip the last bolt... If you blow it, and you have a good belay, you will take a ride, but will hit nothing but space...

Comments: Thought i would spread the word in hopes of no one getting hurt: did this line today, 7/13/13 (really fun, laid back route). On pitch 2, just as you traverse left to gain the first bolt, the first white, enticing jug, one that you no doubt want to grab, is extremely loose. I grabbed it and watched it crack and almost pulled it off the wall. I bumped in time, but no doubt that next person who pulls on it will take a fall. Be careful.

Comments: Certainly a one or two move wonder route. But the moves aren't easy. I have been on 12's that don't have a move or two quite like that. Fun route. Don't think it gets traveled much. Would be interested in seeing if the grade changes with more ascents...

Comments: This is pretty fun. Cool moves, but i can't for the life of me figure out why it goes at 11b... much easier...

Comments: I would be interested in hearing what others have brought on this route to eat? Anyone care to share? Thanks in advance...

Comments: Just got on this for the first time on 5/11/13: what a solidly fun route. Although i didn't notice any loose blocks (perhaps i was just trying to keep focused and not to 'fright' myself off the route - scary on your very first go)... the block James Yate pulled off, i never knew of, and thought it was really solid at 12a....

Comments: This route is a lot of fun, however, i am wondering if someone can set my confusion to rest... does this have its own anchors? Or do they share with the .10 on the right, or the .11 on the left? After pulling the last crux and gaining the ledge, i could not see anchors specifically for this route...so i traversed a little and clipped the chains for the .11 and rapped down. Am i missing something? (have the anchors been removed for any reason?) Also, just bought the new west desert guide and it s... more >>

Comments: There isn't a v3, let alone v4, move on this little line. Even on sit start (& not using the right corner)nothing is much harder then v1. Pretty fun to finish up the day though.
