He actually specifically names this area in which BCS is located in as the Little Lakes Valley and the area above Morgan Pass towards Pine Creek as a basin. Not one mention of drainage any where. Chapt 10.
The Chief wrote:That is the studies verbiage but again, not officially classified as such by the USGS on any topo map or definitive USGS reference.
SO, please answer my question regarding the Palisades Basin, Humphreys Basin, Evolution Basin etc.
The area depicted below btw is officially titled the Palisades Basin by the USGS (The Whitney Group Named it such on their original survey and it stands to this day):

Calling the rating on the crux 5.8 "soft" ..... yet taking 3-4 falls on it? That makes absolutely no sense. Never heard of anyone ever taking a fall let alone 3-4 on that route then calling it "soft". Maybe your partner should stay in the gym where it's nice and controlled with no real drainage potentials.
Glad to hear that you all had fun and the route to yourselves.....
