Comments: Sweet! I love TRing rad lines! Ken Nichols and I are going to come out and climb this thing on TR, like it was meant to be climbed. Then we're gonna chop the bolts, punch this "SexPanther" character in the jaw, and then speed back to Connecticut, cackling wildly. I'll make sure to bring a fresh Sharpie to touch up the name of the route first.

Comments: Your beef is with the World Meteorological Organization - they define fog and clouds as "haze". Take it up with WMO Secretary General Michel Jarraud.

Comments: Great route - I agree with Price that it's hard for 5.9. The book says to take up to a #3 and possibly an extra #3. I took two #3s and a #4 and would have appreciated a couple more big pieces.

Also, the only good protection opportunity before the crux is currently filled in by a massive nest. I couldn't get anything in and did the crux with my last decent piece (a nut) about 15 feet below me. If you have a #4 or #5, you can protect just above your head for th... more >>

Comments: Sorry naysayers - this route is awesome. You're climbing juggy 5.7-5.8 straight up for 900 feet with awesome views (and yes...kinda miserable belays. Deal with it.)

Definitely park outside the loop and hike in the Oak Creek approach (good map HERE and beta HERE... more >>

Comments: Great area!! I can't believe how much good climbing these guys pulled out of a 5 minute approach from the car. Definitely take helmets; you'll be sure to pull several holds off each route you get on. Also consider rapping off some of the taller routes - the anchors are above ledges or bulges that make getting lowered hard on your rope.

Thanks for all the work!
