The route climbs on great rock (except for the transition to the right on the 2nd pitch). You will have to navigate about 20 feet of loose blocks (all of which can be avoided). The second pitch has great hands in a corner and is a bit lower angle but really fun. The moves off the belay for the third pitch will appear spicy but can be well protected. They are balancy and committing. The upper corners are great fun with great jams. Wear comfortable shoes and get your climb on! There is plenty of potential for other routes in the area that are 3-5 pitches in length. Get out and have an adventure on big stone!
It is an incredible stretch of the imagination to suggest that Rob Pissman is "an inspiration to us all." I believe saving wild places for future generations trumps individual glory any day. Long live the wild places.
Really? Posting a route with a relatively huge hike in a canyon that has a bunch of walls with short approaches (that don't even see a lot of people to begin with) will suddenly bring the masses to this wall and destroy a wild place? Stop being such a drama queen! I think it's a safe bet that people like Ward can go up there, have their little solo adventures (and point it out that they've done so on the internet), and still not see another single person up there.
Yeah, I agree this area has been in the guidebook for many years and still rarely gets climbed. It wasn't exactly some top secret virgin they deflowered here. Good work on the route. There are wilder places out there to worry about, ones where you can't see a highway.
