Upper Headwall - Guaranteed Rugged

Overall 3,500 ft of pure climbing! You don’t even have to move belays once! Yes, the climbing is all quite easy… yes, the 5.10 portion of the hard pitches are short and not sustained (some might complain too easy)… yes, there is some loose rock you have to be careful about, and yes the descent…

Whiskey Peak North Face - Frogland

5.8, 6 pitches

Overall If it weren’t for the runout, this would be a 4-star route. The approach is super easy, the climbing is overall fun, the belay ledges are nice, the descent (walk off) is super nice, it ends on a summit, etc. But the freaking runout on P4… it was barely within my comfort level (and…

Black Velvet Wall - Epinephrine
