Really fun climb. The only annoying part was the tree in front of the anchor kept grabbing my cams. Didn't want to break it any more than it was, so just be aware to try to go around it. The protection was really good and the anchor was solid great 5.8 lieback.
I also think that a couple of medium cams is nice to have on this route. I thought the 5.7 liebacking at the bottom was harder, or at least more sustained, than the short 5.8 section above. Great Route.
Great climb with bomber protection. The SuperTopo climb does not mention the need for cams but they're useful anyway. We climbed the left variation at the top as recommended by SuperTopo. The right variation looked easier but is farther from the tree, which is the quickest and best belay anchor.
Sorry, this isn't so much route beta as much as needing beta. We were climbing revival crack/church bowl lieback on sunday 15nt September and left a red, orange, and yellow alien plus a BD .5 cam at bottom, and when we got off they were gone. If someone picked these up by mistake then I'd be really grateful to get them back as i had just bought them. you can email me on email@example.com. Thanks a lot,
Church Bowl has on of the easiest approaches in the valley.

*What is "Route Beta"?
It's climber slang for information or tips on a route as in, "what's
the beta on that route?" As a service to fellow climbers we ask SuperTopo
guidebook users to post tips and updates to this website if they have relevant
information to share after a climb.
