Withthe forecast looking pretty crap for the upcoming 25th, 26th, 27th, there will likely be work going above Thriller on the Pillar. If there is active cleaning goign on, the whole area will be caution taped off and signage posted. Please stay out!
I am hoping to finish off the project indicated up and right of the pitch three on Wiretap. I am pretty stoked; it is shaping up to be hand crack with good exposure. This would mean you could potentially climb Thriller (10b-c crack), P2&P3 of Wiretap (as a single pitch at 5.9 crack), and about 30m more of likely 10.x crack. A total of about 90m of cracks.
Update: there is but about 6-7 meters of crack and route to finish cleaning. After one more dusting of the whole thing, it should be in shape to climb. After the previous days cleanign it is looking like it might be 10.b ish. If one is keen to see the line, there is a photo post of someone climbing Wiretap in the Wiretap thread (taken from Slot Machine). There is a tree obscuring much of the route, but you can make out the mossy green crack line that branches off of the top of the third pitch and arcs its way up the cliff face.

A climber is visible working their way up 3rd pitch of Wiretap.
I also dusted off any crud I dropped into Wiretap, Rumble, and Eavesdrop
Thanks for not drooling on the cracks above the red tape!
1) There is no rap route for this climb currently. And since what goes up must come down DON’T climb this pitch! You will get stuck up on the cliff face.
2) Spent the afternoon putting the final touches on the new pitches and making sure that Wiretap was pristine.
3) This new climb will have its own rap route. I thought it would be done yesterday, so I pulled the red tat and began bolting in the descent. THE RAP DESCENT IS UNFINISHED. Turns out there are some loose logs and rocks, which make the descent unsafe, and we could not safely remedy the problem on a sunny Friday. I was unable to re-place the red tat. Please standby for further updates. It will be well worth the wait.
4) This won’t be ready for at least 10 days from now ( leave town in a few seconds). Until then, enjoy Wiretap (5p 10a), Thriller on the Pillar (10b-c), Hearsay (10b), Eaves Drop (11a), Float Like a Butterfly (11b), and Rumble in the Jungle (5-point-8). See the topo in the Wiretap thread.
