4 out of 5 stars FA info/spotter recommended

Jerry Messinger did FA-- Jan 2001? Recommended a belayer and spotter (on opposite wall) in Orton's guidebook. Great rock and cool moves, too bad it wasn't 80 feet long!

4 out of 5 stars gordy tries leading Back Bonker Arete

Another challenging bouldery Emigrant route.Didnt get the onsight,but loved trying.I luckilly made the first clip ,but took a short fall soon after.First clip is a little schetchy for climber and belayer.Might want to have a second person to spot?Great rock quality.
