Comments: Start from the downhill (south) side of the boulder, mantle up and continue up the arete following the path of least resistance; textbook V-easy/VB whatever.

Comments: The boulder actually lies to the south of the Slash Boulder, not the east.

Comments: This boulder had an old Randy Leavitt project on it for many years but the bolts have since been removed.

Comments: Very well protected climbing up a left-trending feature to a definite crux at the last bolt. Taller climbers will have a much easier time reaching the good holds and consequently find it a tad easier.

Also, what's up with the two sets of anchors at the top?

Comments: Short, sharp and to-the-point but sadly it's lost a good ten feet or more of height from debris.

Comments: Engaging slab moves down low past sidepulls and underclings until the abrupt and in-your-face crux where it steepens. A few swift pulls on so-so holds gain a jug and the end of the difficulties. This route, like others in the area, lost about 10-15 feet of climbing from invasive debris.

Comments: The start of this was the crux - was until it was buried under 10-15 feet of debris (the original 1st bolt is still in place about three feet off the ground). The slab is still the crux on this but it's not a 5.10 route any longer.

Comments: There seems to be two cruxes on this route - the 1st passing the first bolt and the 2nd crux at the fourth bolt going over the small overlap. The grade may seem somewhat easier is you veer left at the first bolt but going straight up is harder and offers better moves.

A long, fun outing on quality stone and although still a bit dirty it will clean up nicely - good job guys!

Comments: Improbable looking but holds appear when needed and it all goes at an easier grade than appearances might suggest.

Comments: Mostly easy but fun slab climbing with a distinct crux at the 2nd bolt as you navigate the tricky vertical arete. A medium to large cam (1.5-3 inch) works well in the horizontal crack between the first and second bolts if so inclined.

Comments: Access from the left side of a large creasote bush and make tricky moves to get established in the initial crack; higher the crack flares and gets wide as it passes alongside the left edge of a roof to finish with standard wide crack with grain.

Could be led with some big gear if motivated but it's easily toproped from the bolted anchors on Panama Canal.

Comments: A little awkward getting established to clip the first bolt then good movement up the lieback section with a standard grain finish. It's nice to see new routes like this turn up in such heavily visited/developed areas.

Comments: A fun romp up the slab left of Whispering Chickens. Dicey pro for the lead but easily toproped off the bolted anchor.
