Comments: I don't know, heard or read somewhere it was hard to get off with hand tools? Is that what you use?

Comments: Thanks for fixing this Eric, I lowered off that last bolt myself back in 2005 or so. *yikes* Donated to the ASCA last year when somebody (forgot who) was matching 100% of the donation. Glad to see it put to good use.

Comments: A couple of the nuts on the bolts in the middle (that probably see a lot of whippers) are loose and I didn't have my wrench at the time. Hand tightened as best I could.

Comments: It's not unsafe, but you'd probably want your belayer on their toes for the crux moves. On the second ledge up high, it's easy to forget the bolt is even there, don't forget to peek around the corner and clip it.

Comments: I've Xed a couple of blocks in the horizontal near the top and am trying to get some advice from people with more experience on how to deal w them. The one on the left is safe for a hand jam underneath but I wouldn't pull down or sideways on it. Not too familiar w the one on the right since I never went that way but my friend said it was flexing.

PS I've circled the blocks in Ryan and Jesse's photo, will try to get out there this weekend.

Comments: Thanks for posting Greg, was gonna post it a few years back but then I realized I couldn't remember where the anchors were. I think I ended up going right to the anchors for GAC Rulz? Also, can't remember if I brought the second up or they weren't interested in climbing it and I was able to clean it from those anchors.

Comments: Moving Over Stone #2 says "Photography - Scott Ayers" in the credits at end. I guess what would be called "cinematography" these days? Not sure about #1.

Comments: Thing looks burly, *yikes* I'd err on the side of 4 #4s.

Fine job establishing all these great routes guys!

Comments: Good warm-up for the 12s next door, if I remember correctly even with the chain draw it's a lot easier to just have a follower clean.

Comments: That's bizarre, I deleted whatever You Tube video I had posted with a now non-functioning link. Next thing I know, my name plus the date I had posted that video (in response to "climber", can't remember what it was, but it wasn't in support of what he said) then showed up in the middle of Eric's next post under the quote from "climber".

Lol, I didn't even start climbing or move to Tucson until 2002, not a clue as to what was going on around here in 1987.

Comments: It's great to be able to finally call this thing by its real name, and much easier to communicate with other people about it.

This route is a classic, go get on it!

P.S. IIRC, on the low crux of the fifth pitch, where the gear is bomber but there's a possibility you'll collide with your belayer if you fall, a grigri might be a wise choice.

Comments: FWIW, the following routes just right of "Fern Roof" are walk-offs, there's anchors for belaying up a second but not for lowering or rapping: Inferno 5.10+, Crystal Roof 5.11, Crystal Ball 5.11. 60m is about 10 feet SHORT of the ground if you lower off anyway (off your own anchors, bail biners, etc..)

Comments: You need extension about the length of two long draws on each of the first two bolts to not get rope drag higher up.
