Climbed this one with Chris, Taylor and Eric as two seperate teams. If this is the worst rock on the perch, I can't wait to get on another perch route! I felt like most of the route was around 5.6, with a few 5.7-5.9 moves here and there to keep things interesting. We descended on the Redfish Lake Creek side and got cliffed out and had to rap 3 times.
Quick trip with Scott & Ian. This is one of the best climbing destinations I have been to.
I loved this climb. Super fun day with Aimee Barnes.
With Lindsey Pearson. Fun route, but I felt it was lower quality than the other routes we did on EP. Definitely some good climbing on this one though.
The perch is just an awesome climbing venue and the Mountaineer's a great intro to what is to come. The postion moving under the triple roofs and beyond is great. Climbed with AJones and would second the notion that the 5.9 variation on the second last pitch was the best pitch of the climb.
Great cruiser climb - Make sure to climb the 5.9 variation (around pitch 6, depending on how you pitch the route together) - it's probably the best pitch on the climb.
This is one of the best routes for the grade in Idaho! Awesome!
Had a lovely go on the mountaineers route. We added two variations. The first short variation came atop p1 or p2 (depending on pitch linkage) @ tree head up straight into right facing 2" hand crack for twenty feet. joins main route just after crack section 5.7-8. The next variation most will want to stay away from unless on a 70m rope and equiped with big bros or lg cams up to maybe 5". Pitch 5's variation peels off the main line after working left around the diamond then heads up a two crack chimney system into 40' of ow back into hands. Seldom climbed but quality. The variation ended @ the crack systems for standard rt pitch 6. I love this place!
