Comments: Found two plastic bottles and disgusting pile of feces at the base of "Don't Mess with Muleshoe." Can't believe a climber could have been so thoughtless and stupid.

Comments: Yep, JT is making headway, but the crux still lies ahead of her, just above her hands. Nice highball, but that landing has really eroded over the years. Nice to have a pair of burly spotters and some pads.

Comments: Adam T....."Pick Pocket" is listed as trad. because of the bolt spacing. Ten bolts in 140 feet is not your typical sport bolted route. Check out the bolted face routes at Suicide Rock and Joshua Tree, which are "fully" bolted, but posted as trad. routes.

Comments: Tony sure has the beta on "Low Rider" dialed in. Definitely a sandbag at 5.10b and his witty prose about the route NOT calling you back is profoundly dead on.

Comments: True, true....Joe Lee...you have to love those long slabs, especially when its not raining, and/or they're wet and dripping.

Comments: Peter....that may very well be the case, as it would be challenging to wrap your head around that slabby move after a nine month layoff.

Comments: Dang....there's some serious camera tilt taking place with this photo. Can't image the angle gets much more than 75-78 degrees on P3.

Comments: Composition??...couldn't disagree more with you, Shawn. Lines, symmetry, and depth of field...check, but the lighting isn't great and the contrast is marginal, but Davith is right it's beautiful chunk of rock and that overhang is begging to be climbed. Looks like a great spot to deep water solo. And Chris I....the votes for the great photo aren't by lecherous MP members, but as Davith indicated, the spectacular chunk of stone that supports that overhang and the climbing opportunity it showcases.... more >>

Comments: There seems to be a fair amount of complaining regarding the original post of the description of Graveyard Shift. If you feel strongly that the description is woefully inadequate step up to the plate and use the new "IMPROVE THIS PAGE" feature to add an articulate and glowing description of the climb.

Comments: Younger copperheads are NOT more venomous, but lack the experience to control the rate of invenomation. The resultant bite may contain more venom due to their failure to conserve venom for more productive situations.

Comments: Now that placement is "special." Looks like there's more shale than calcite in the seam. Looks more like vertical mud!!

Well done, both of you. Many thanks for ALL the great routes you have established. Nice back story on the origins of the route and the name, Randy.
