4 out of 5 stars Good clean fun.

Definitely a John Bachar route. Not a ton of gear for the first 30 ft., and maybe an old school 10a but a new school 10c, as a warning. Apparently this used to be 5.8?

4 out of 5 stars Yeah, baby.

Not for the faint of heart: Three bolts and one piece, and this isn't exactly a short route.

5 out of 5 stars Tasty.

Crux depends on your taste: technical stemming down low, pumpier stuff up high. Fun the whole way.

4 out of 5 stars Steep with big holds.

Figure out the sequence in your head before you try it, much easier. Crux is down low.

4 out of 5 stars Plan B.

Meant to do the East But, but was a bit cold/windy so we opted for the Mountaineer's Route. Still a bit exciting without ice tools when you round the corner after the gully, as the main trail that time of year is a frozen mess. Be prepared for a little class 4 if you do this in winter.

4 out of 5 stars Fun stuff!

Got it my second try, which means I'm not sure it's a 5... fun moves though, crux in the middle.

4 out of 5 stars Cruxy top.

The last move or two before pulling the lip is the crux. Big move for a V3.
