Comments: Drill Baby Drill is 5.10b/c by consensus. Harder than Boneyard and Before the Storm, but on par with Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
There are still some good sized holds coming off of this line and a few suspect holds/flakes remain, so pull down not out.

Comments: Too short?? Only 8 ft of hard climbing. If it were only longer it would get more stars? It got your attention though didn't it! 4 stars out of 5 just for the one hard move that thwarted so many onsights. Got the OS in 1987 and again 25 years later. Maybe the latter was a "grey point."

Comments: NOT! Isn't your life worth more than $4?? Even in pairs that would be pretty sketchy. Do yourself a favor and use two carabiners with gates opposed or a locking carabiner, or better yet two lockers.

Comments: In the notch yes, wedged probably not, as it is slightly overhanging and will easily spit you out if you bobble.

Comments: Mike...the topo for Mama Woolsey is slightly off, as there are two solid bolts. One where you have the rivet and another on the face near the top.

Comments: Can't believe all the paranoia about being bitten. SUCK IT UP! Snakes are incredible climbers and will go where the swallows and rats are nesting. You stop molesting it and it won't bother you. Climbers come across Rat Snakes in the Gunks, Rosy Boas in Joshua Tree, and Gopher Snakes at Echo Cliffs on routes all the time. If you believe that snake got there by falling from above you must have been hit in the head and sustained a traumatic brain injury.

Comments: Great. It's a nice topo, but it's incorrect. So, why not delete it and post one that is accurate? Seems to be a serious flaw at MP, where visiting climbers post erroneous photos/topos and it's nearly impossible to get it deleted or corrected.

Comments: What the hell! I agree that Home Depot shouldn't be the source for climbing anchors, but anchors that were NOT established by the FA have appeared on Popular Mechanics, Tax Man, Gargoyle, Loose Lady, ... Why not Papa Woolsey??

Comments: Lightflight...Saturday's are generally busier than Sunday, but with over 100 routes at Texas Canyon it's easy to find routes that aren't crowded provided you don't insist on climbing in The Canyon. Be flexible and you'll have a great time.
