Comments: Hey Ferrels!
Glad you are back in town for a while. I think you are talking about a possible low bolt to protect the traverse into the route Tool Boy. I really don't care either way. I did protect the lower section with a cam but its behind a really thin flake and I did break off the lip of said flake with my bare hands on a TR burn earlier. Another thing we did was to set up a Hard Grit style directional in the 5.8 route to the left and then unclip that once you get into the usable gear of Tool... more >>

Comments: Cool route Jeff, tricky crux. Could be 11.d, especially harder for shorter people.

Comments: This route is actually really fun IF it is dry.

Comments: This route starts on the raised pedistal using the same holds as "Start of something good" and then traverses right through a hard sloping crux to a brief rest before embarking on sustained 5.11moves over fairly loose rock before meeting back up with "Start of something good" at the anchors. Likely a 5.12b/c.

Comments: I recommend working "Last Dance " first, then doing this after the bottom is dialed. Crimp crimp crimp then a big throw to a ledge and its over. Like Randy says, careful on-the. top

Comments: Has anyone done this? I tried it a few years ago and couldn't find a way up it. It did go at A0 though.

Comments: Really hard route especially because the crux holds keep seeping. Fun moves on really small holds but I like Light My Fire and Rock Pigs better.

Comments: Like "Light My Fire" to its right, "Rock Pigs" is another under-appreciated route on the winter wall. Really fun with a big move mid route. Good rests between hard climbing.

Comments: Probably the best route at Willow.

Comments: I find it hard to believe that the route described is anywhere near 5.9. I'm thinking low 12 as well. The moves off the ground are hard enough without thinking about the desperatly blind slapping that occurs when trying to clip the anchor. Also careful on the hike over.

Comments: Like JW says, hard to rate with only 10 feet of buisness. Still not quite 12c in my mind. Fun little bear hug of a route either way.
