Comments: I didn't have to use the really really bad pinchy side pull awkward thing. I skipped it. Which I dunno you did say it might be easier depending on height so I really don't know. Wade has anyone else done this thing yet?

Comments: I have a friend that lives right near there. If I remember right they were building the new dam quite a ways away from the old dam, and we were guessing they would stop using the old one (the one with the climbing) altogether but we never made sure. I mean we climbed at the dam one night (er bouldered the starts) while they were building the other dam and it didn't look like they had plans for the one we were in.

Comments: Also there is a bolt right at the lip of the roof. So bring at least one draw because that is a hard part.
