Comments: I thought that this was a fun climb with a couple of thin hand jams and a few tricky finger-locks.
I would have given it more stars but for three reasons:
1). It's a little dirty.
2). It's a little loose.
3). It's named after Burrell.

Wait...

4). Put the chains in and they will come...

Comments: The guidebook says, "Park at the end of the road, and then backtrack on foot 100' to the trail..."

It should say," Park at the end of the road, and the trail is up and to your left."

Many climbers get lost here, backtrack down the road and end up in between Pocket Rocks and Sprocket Rocks.

Another one for the istians in their RC quest for trad obscurities.

Comments: The line you drew in is a 5.7 called Mark's Corner.
Left Corner is the next crack to the right before you get to Double Jam.

This climb has two eliminations to make it the 10d grade. You can't use any of the crack or the left wall of Right Corner, and you can't use the right arete, as that's another route put up before this one.

It was named after a climber who never called a route by its name, but by its grade.

Contrived, greasy, pumpy, historic- what more is there to ask for in a climb?

Comments: This was rated 5.11+ because it's a two-pitch climb, and that's the rating of the 2nd pitch that angles up and left thru a flare.

It had nothing to do with the two cracks at the bottom.
