Comments: Placed #5 camelot possibly every pitch. Initial path from cave entrance to crack and first protection has high potential for injury for a fall. Serious and fun climb.

Comments: I led from the last red dot (belay) directly left to the green line of frogland and did that finish. Straight over the bulge was considered but rock quality judged suspect and the party before us went left as well.

Comments: With 60m rope must rap from Edge Dressing anchor which is lower and left of the anchor directly above the finish of p4 (if not topping out and not linking p1&2). Perhaps I finished too far right, but know that our 60m did not reach the rap station below from the higher anchor.

Comments: Great photo. Would someone take a photo from the point of view of the approach trail? I forgot. It would make this crag easier to find.

Comments: I would go along with an R rating, though I judge it PG13. Skip the derision--I second Mr. DiSciullo's ideas of dropping that block and setting a bolt. Better my belayer had been safer. It is runout right off the usual belay station or the bolt would be redundant.

Comments: yes, best warm-up route
one anchor bolt was modern screw type with shiny hanger; other was older but solid

Comments: Rapped off yesterday, 2 ropes. Could not pull rope through single rap ring at top. Climbed back up to see nothing preventing rope pull--friction on small ring??? Moved knot a bunch down from there while rappeling again. Almost would not pull again but managed it. Recommend finding walk off. Glad the views and climb were worth the hassle.

Comments: The description comment is off--bad gear placements? Yes, I liked putting pro in before the first piton. There really is no other gear to place. This is a sport route. Yes, the first piton is a bit high and the rest are spread out. But, they are all very solid.
