Comments: The link posted is to a copy of the old Aaron Rough topos which predate any and all guidebooks to the area. The Hueco Wall topo lists nine routes while actually there are actually just eight as listed here online; the additional route, an unnamed 5.11a right of "Dance This", does not exist.

Comments: Great photo that gives a good idea as to the size of the face and solitude of the area.

Comments: The actual finish for this route is up the roof crack in the middle of the photo (which makes it a 5.10a route).

Comments: Belleville is more of an eliminate and avoids the better holds out left as well as right, so close but no cigar.

Comments: This obvious route was climbed long before January of 2000 and at least one name for it is/was "Cornflakes".


Location: CA : Inland Empire : Riverside Quarry : The Alcove : Short Shot (5.11a)

Comments: Locating this route is quite easy - just look for the little white man painted on the rock. The crux seems to be going over a roof midway but endurance can be a factor as well.

There is an extension to this route called Long Shot (5.12b) *** 16 bolts to anchors/140'.

Note that the elevation for the given temperatures is slightly under 2000 feet while Hidden Valley Campground is over 4000 feet which will mean slightly cooler temperatures.

There are scads of fun and enjoyable routes facing every direction of the compass, even south for when it's cold, so head out and climb for as long as your fingertips can take it!

Comments: Originally done as a 5.12 top-rope problem back in the 1980's. Not sure who did the first ropeless ascent but it's more of a solo than a boulder problem considering the height.

Comments: Not really at Courtright Reservoir, rather right off the road on the way there or back, but well worth a stop.

Comments: Dome with a View is incorrectly marked on the map, it should be the dome just east of Power Dome and/or the dome southeast of Punk Rock, aside from that it is very helpful.
