Safety in Numbers

"During the late 70s, mass assaults on various routes became in vogue. 4,5 or 6 (sometimes more) climbers would tie in at intervals into a single rope. The leader would head up with the standard (meaning minimal) rack of hexes and stoppers. The followers would begin climbing when the rope ran out of slack. The last person cleaned.

Comments: This route was originally called "Rubber Soul" in keeping with the Beatles theme of the nearby "Magical Mystery Tour" but was later changed.

Comments: The line to the left of Shadow is an old 5.13a TR problem which was, I think, bolted and led by Lonnie Kauk.

Comments: Bouldering has been going on in this area for the last 20+ years. It would be safe to assume anything obvious and about V6 or under was probably done long ago; that said there is still potential especially in the harder grades.

Comments: Flashed by Peter Mayfield in 1990. Local Max Dufford commented "It figures that it would be done by a Californian - who else but a granite climber would know those kinds of moves?" (Climbing Magazine #121).

Comments: This sounds like the route "Catholic Grade School" (5.10b), which climbs the obvious crack on the right side of the southwest face.

Comments: The name of this route is "Battle Crack" (5.9). Sorry Jeff but you missed the FA of this route by about 20 years.

Comments: This sounds like a TR variation to a lead route called "He-Man Slab (5.10b) which climbs past the bolt into the obvious corner/crack.

Comments: The name of this route is "Castle Grey Skull" (5.10c) and the route climbs straight up the slab although it's possible to avoid the crux by either of the two starting methods described.

Comments: Originally rated 5.13b by the first ascensionist and reported in Climbing Magazine #120 (June/July 1990) as "a sustained pitch the final move of which involves a four-and-a-half-foot dyno."

Like several of the harder bolted lines here the initial grades given were a bit enthusiastic.

Comments: Another, perhaps better, approach to the upper Oyster Bar routes is to head around past Conrad Rock and the southern entrance to The Asylum and then contour across the hillside to the east-facing Oyster Bar routes. Although this way may be a little longer, the elevation gain is more gradual and as a bonus you hike past all of the best climbs in the area.
