Comments: I think the climbing and most of the trail is on National Forest land. I think the trail just passes shortly through private property. Can anyone share more information about this?

Comments: umm... where did you dyno to off the ground? I found the crux to be the second move. two moves before the dyno. I clipped 4 bolts before the anchor. and which sequence did you use to the top. Felt a little awkward to me.

Comments: I had a lot of fun on this one. The 5.7 start was classic! Easy route finding, and great rock. We had to get there early on a weekday to be the first group on the route. I did it pretty easily in three pitches, 70m rope. **** grade II.

Comments: Hi Peter,
I'm curous about what your suggested grade was before you upgraded it? I heard some folks are getting psyched on it. Maybe it will see some repeats.
Peace

Comments: So does any body think this climb has a different rating if done straight to the top or out to the right a little bit. It seems like going left would put you right above another boulder, sketch. I love this climb!

Comments: Hi Bob,
I have been looking around Empire for boulders. HB Boulder looks nice. Where is it? East of the main cliffs?
thanks, chris

Comments: Are the bolts still questionable? or Bad? Should they be replaced? Does anyone know anything more about this route? I would love to climb it on lead. I wonder if i need to bring new bolts to do that.

Comments: I didn't think it was so sketchy of a climb. The bolts seemed well placed. Good little problem in otherwise easy terrain.

Comments: A 70m rope makes it in one pitch with about 25ft of rope left. Doing it in one pitch I used my whole rack, which was triples of everything Camalot 0.5 - 3 and a few smaller cams. Amazing pitch!

Comments: Thank you Ron. Does any one know any information about older routes uphill from diving for Kipper snacks and/or to the right of Upper Krishna formation? I think this is the area where Helix, Old and Easy, and Eat my lichen would lie.

Comments: The fixed nut on the 1st pitch is no longer good. The Cable snapped under my body weight only, it was pretty frayed. I was unable to clean the darn thing, so its still fixed. It doesn't want to come out, and unfortunately it is blocking the placement of new gear. I hope someone can get it out.

Comments: I'm glad this route was bolted, because I would never want to lead it trad, and I have led other routes at this crag with trad gear.

Comments: The right-facing seam just below the anchors seemed about 11b to me, and would make sense as the arete between the Unsaid and Washington Irving. The crux to me pulled around the arete from left to right into the corner slab and the anchors.

Comments: Great route! Above the wedged chockstone I pulled on a jug only to be shocked by finding my stomach jumping out of my mouth. I yelled rock and the 20-35 lb block landed 15ft from my belayer! Man, we were lucky. Just thought I'd let everyone know there is more potentially loose rock up there, surprising because the rock looks and most of it is great. Wear your brain bucket!

Comments: There is still a lot of loose rock up on Tonnere. I knocked off a bunch of large blocks next to the belay on top of pitch one. Glad this place isn't too popular yet.

Comments: Totally classic, my first real trad lead. Excellent for an intro to trad climbing or on a breezy day.

Comments: I found the crux to be right above the lip of the overhang, where the crack opens up. I mostly used face holds at this point, making full use of the arete on the right. TR rope solo was my choice for pro, but it seems like placing pro would be strenuous to say the least.
