Comments: All this talk about the "contrived route"- what a joke! Like the first ascensionist purposely "put" the route in the wrong place and some poor put-upon climbers only discover this when they've done the route- after the fact!

Speaking about facts: the route was, in deed, put up in 83' but by Mike Forkash and followed by Steve Gerberding and Jay Goodwin.

Comments: Fun route that would have been a good deal better with a bolt placed low on this rig above the first ledge. One day, someone might very well blow it getting to the now first bolt- since most don't pack large cams to the Gorge- and many won't be calling it such a "classic" anymore either, just stupid, or at least, a stupidly engineered classic sport route that the first ascensionists decided not to pro properly.

Comments: There's a reason why some routes have never been developed in the Gorge: this route is one of them. Arguably one of the flakiest and worst jobs of cleaning- or lack of to be found. It makes one wonder: what were they thinking...or not!

Comments: Ahhh...this is a 35 "meter" lead, not 35'. Use a 60 meter rope at your peril.

Comments: We did it too- 04/15. Still has only a single bolt anchor. Makes your wonder as to the logic of whoever took the second bolt out and left it for so long with but one!

Comments: We recently returned from our first visit to Malibu Creek. We did find it both beautiful and- get ready for this- quiet. Figure that out. The camping mid-week (from Sunday afternoon till Friday morning) has maybe 10% occupancy. Low season rates are $35/night + another $12 for any additional vehicle. High season- after March 1st: add another $10/night. Shower tokens are had at the first restroom machine or by the camp host. The state camping website lists a local number that nobody bothers either... more >>
