Comments: I was on lead in this photo and have since always skipped this bolt in favor of the gear.


It could be patched very easily...I will do it if the community is ok with it.

It is really not needed however neither are the bolted anchors at the first pitch hehe...

Comments: I actually prefer this variation now to this climb...The original start is fun if you want to run it to the first bolt for kicks...other than that this is definitely a better start

Comments: What is crazy about this shot is that the climb my brother is on is called "Sun Dialed" cool the sun is dialed in on him...right right...however there is a climber in the arch of light that is obscured slightly and hes climbing "Blinded by the Lights" which I think is great add on to this photo.

The Sun is Dialed on Sun Dialed and homeboy is Blinded by the Lights!! haha

Comments: as far as I know this still has not been done haha we used the "assrocket" technique one night climbing in the pitch black and I sent it with assistance on the dyno haha but its a huge move from tiny holds...I"d be interested to see what other opinions of this difficulty are or if anyone has done it.

Comments: while this route does boast some reinforced holds I did find it fun albeit short...Either way do not judge a route by its posters comments some will find this route enjoyable.

Comments: just wanted to say i did this climb again today and it is a great way to start ???? however I saw chalk to the right of the bolt line *(which is fine not saying your off route)* but the way this climb was intended was to climb the face proper till you exit right under the corner... if your going right of the first 3 bolts on this variation your cheating yourself on some fun face climbing moves!

Comments: Hey Jim, sorry for the late reply. I think it was the bolt itself * potentially the best location for one just the rock at the top of the route is not as quality*

I'm sure the route is safe I just was trying to gauge bolt placements on a crag like this. I'm not a developer but enjoy learning how the art is made :)

Comments: I talked to a local rancher who was asking me about the climbing, he told me that they call that little strip of crag that most of the routes are on "the biscuit" and that the longer crag is the mustang. not to correct or change anyones names just thought it was interesting info as he said "it gets hot as a biscuit up there" haha
