Description:

This is a steep and clean route that starts out fairly moderately, but sneaks up to bite you as you climb higher. Every pitch is interesting - though never desperate, you'll find tricky moves to keep you thinking. Bring free climbing shoes for the crumbling 5.10 run out - Ammon and I agree it felt like 5.11x to us! Your wrists will be aching from all the nailing you'll do by the time you summit - I placed sixteen pins on the Place of Dead Roads alone! Be sure to bring some thin-cabled hangers for the over-driven rivets.

5 out of 5 stars Favorite el cap route

This was a great climb, with no awkward sections at all. Take many black diamond peckers, especially medium and large. Prolly had 12 with me in these sizes, way better than beaks. Beware the Place of Dead Roads. ;)

We started up on 10/29, climbed for two days (pitch a day). Came down to rock Halloween. Then back up for 2 pitches a day to the top. Topped out in a big rain dump. Great route! Turned 30 on the route.

We actually switched over to Tangerine Trip at the Bay of Pigs. We dropped our wide gear, it was hot, and I did not want to be up there anymore. Big wall climbing for me was over! I sold all of my shit when I got home. I just got tired of the work.
