Richard on Reeds Direct

Average Rating = 4.12/5 Richard on Reeds Direct

Reed's Direct is one of the steepest, most physical 5.9 hand cracks you will ever do. It's a major classic and, situated on a crag high above the canyon floor, seems higher than a cragging pitch.

Average Rating = 4.09/5 Casey on Bircheff-Williams

The first Pitch of Bircheff-Williams is one of the purest stems anywhere. It's rated 11b but Hans Florine told us that he thinks it's a huge sandbag. While the first few pitches are the best, the higher pitches aren't as classic.
