5 out of 5 stars Another tick on The Mace

Great day for climbing! P1 was a nice warmup, P2 5.fun chimney and offwidth (a BD #5 was useful). P3 5.grunt chimney - don't worry about pro, I just cammed my gut. P4 that crack means business unless you stem...and that crux bolt is totally unnecessary with a #4 - i placed my #5 just above for fun, but it basically created rope drag sliding over it at the top-out belay. P5 sweet air...windy as hell this day.
definite classic. Most of the route is shaded by noon so it's doable on hotter days. enjoy!

5 out of 5 stars sweet route!

great climbing...when you get there. If you bushwhack, don't step on the criptobiotic soil (black topping to the crusty sand). The approach from the left is definitely the way to go (wish we did it). P1, 3, 4, 5 all great climbing on quality rock. P2 could've easily used natural protection. We got ropes stuck momentarily on raps 2 and 3, and I feel we got really lucky. Thanks for the recommendation Sonso45!

3 out of 5 stars awkward factor makes it harder than 5.5

face moves down low may save you from getting all crossed up. The upper portion is quality crack though.

5 out of 5 stars like a glove

My hand size fit perfect...my friends didn't fare so well, but they were getting pumped out on 3AM crack before coming over so that my have something to do with it.

4 out of 5 stars good stuff

One of the few climbs at the creek it seemed that's not endurance dependent. A nice 5.9
