Comments: I don't really have a strong feeling about carving names into small rocks at the base. It's way better than carving it into the wall. I'd bet if you picked up the desert vaurnet Rock and threw it down the hill as hard as you can no one would ever have known it was there. These little blocks at the base of routes were essentially mountain project before the Internet.

Comments: There's one tall Boulder and a few shorter ones waiting to be climbed on the approach to the Rattlehorn. mountainproject.com/v/the-ratt...

Comments: Good and pumpy route. Really nice pitch to climb past the anchor and clip 5.9 green bolts to the upper anchor. Hit it up now while it's chalked/ticked so you don't waste too much energy deciding which holds to use. There's good feet if you don't forget to use them. The cobbles here have more friction than maple canyon.

Follow it up this pitch with a lead on Sloppy Second for a nice choss guzzle with a cool top ou... more >>

Comments: It's been a long time since I've been there but I don't recall any routes with bolts. Were the bolts new?

Comments: Thanks for checking it out and helping to clean up some of the looseness. Sorry you didn't like the routes. The harder routes are harder.

Comments: Has anyone else climbed this? I'd like to get a consensus on the grade. It might be 5.10d+.

Comments: Sounds like you've got a dull drill bit. In hard stone a few holes per bit is reasonable.

Comments: Ring on left anchor is dangerously thin. Take a wrench, a steel ring, and a quick link if you remember. Thanks to the FA

Comments: Is this the area with sport routes put up by Bob Draney and sabastian in the early -mid 90s? . . . Some fun steep pocket pulling out there

Comments: Fun route. Like blown glass, there's air bubble holes all over that form sweet pockets not usually seen in BCC.

For those calling this and .11. . . Go take some practice laps on This

And harden the f@:0( up.

Ha ha just kidding. It felt good to clip the first bolt.

Nice route. Thanks for the bolts to clip.

Comments: Super 8 climbs that whole nice column. You can see about the top 2/3 of the route.

Comments: It's been a while since I was there (like a decade) but i thought there was an established parking area and blazing new trails into the desert was kind of forbidden. Most people camp by the upper sandcove or lower sandcove reservoirs nearby. I can't imagine "getting a run at it" with your burly 4wd vehicle left no trace on the way out.

Comments: If you get skunked on the ice due to warming temps, the rock climb "air to spare" faces south and might be a good alternative(rock shoes, 12 draws, cams .5"-2", few slings).

On the right day it's probably possible to do the ice climb then the rock climb in the same day.

Please pardon the shameless crag promotion but air to spare is a fun climb. . .

Comments: There is a 2 or 3 pitch route that climbs up into the maw under the big roof that was pretty fun. Starts left of candyland. Bolts appeared where you needed them. It was the first route my friends and I climbed out there. It was a decade before mountain project so there was plenty of climbing into the unknown. Such a pretty place especially for climbers.

Comments: NOLS teaches multi week climbing classes on the granite out there. I think JG also put some routes on the granite. Fun place to go up and see what you find. We found many routes had A0 sections through the hardest parts so they were pretty manageable to go up.
