Comments: I hadn't climb this route in years! To reiterate the previous comments the first pitch is a mega rope stretcher with a 70M. I've always just "entered" the climb on the 4th class ramp (Start of Archaeology). The 2nd bolted belay has now 2 BOLTS. So no more need to back it up with gear. Also the unprotected slab above the corner to the 3rd belay now has an added bolt. Munge Master
Really FUN route for Toll house!
Not counting "At Your Leisure", "Munge Master", and "Sunset Strip", there are now 3 ... more >>

Comments: The road is in one of the best conditions I've seen in some time. Looks like this past summer it got graded again. The "crux hill" for us 2WD cars in much more mellow. Like Mark said above, short of it be very wet (also ice from melted snow), the road is very nice all the way back to the power line for 2WD cars.

Comments: It’s funny how 4th class gullies are the most awkward climbing. That would sum up the first 90’ on this climb. Pleasant easy 5th once you leave the gully. Long walk off!
