Comments: The 2 bolts of the 5.8/5.9 variation face pitch below the Beckey Tree were even sketchier! Surprised they're still on the wall.

Comments: The 5th (last) piton in the 4th pitch corner is now gone. The 4th pin held after I ripped the 5th and the other ones below it looked pretty solid too.

Comments: This climb is pretty sick. The approach is easy, the burly climbing is north facing (first 4 pitches), the position is cool with some fantastic views to boot, plus the belays are all comfortable. The rack is spot on, maybe add a green C3, but that's it. Get on it!

Comments: The "blunt" (Flake jutting out) halfway up the route is now gone. I got lucky I didn't yard on it on lead or it could have been ugly! Maybe bring an extra hand piece now. The grade seems like it'll stay about the same, but the new section could now use a brushing.

Comments: I found this one more mentally and technically demanding than some of the 12- 's at the Waterfall. Bring your game for the crux, it's no cake walk. The gear is all there, just thin.

Comments: Four of my cams fell on the second pitch when one of my gear loops broke. Shit Luck. I'm still missing a .2 BD X4 (yellow) and a .3 BD X4 (blue). I'm in the Valley. If you happen to have them I'll buy you a 6 pack. Send an Email. Thanks!

Comments: Hey folks, My partner and I climbed there central pillar yesterday. It was lots of fun. On rappel we got our ropes stuck and had to rap past the second rap station. I was able to make it to some anchors, but my partner had to build a anchor and leave three pieces. If any one grabs them it would be super cool to get them back. There is some beer in it for you.
Thanks Ryan

Comments: Any pictures of the bed and whether the back seats folded or needed to be pried out? Looking into doing the same with my old toyota corolla.

Comments: My # 2 fell out of my pack at the summit on this climb today and when we got down and I realized it was up there it was getting dark. I would get out there this weekend but I have work unfortunately . If any kind soul climbs this and comes across the piece I'll buy you a pint. Cheers.

Comments: While attempting to climb orange out direct last night I was swarmed by hornets while placing a nut. Beware of that. I didn't manage to clip in and my whole set of nuts are hanging on the route (20-25 ft. up) while I took cover on a nearby jug.
