Comments: Approach: Park at the 2nd pullout with a wooden post and forest service sign (but no wording, just wood). Can park about 5 cars. Approach is about 10 minutes and you'll wind up at the Snake 5.8 Trad 60 feet climb.

Comments: Talked to the Webers and they are amazing people that donated untold huge THOUSANDS of dollars for all of us to have a outdoor climbing gym. Step up and do the right thing and donate now.

The place is organized, kept up clean, fantastic trails with big signs, each route is marked. Totally amazing the amount of work they put into this area.

Comments: Oh man, if I was a 5.7 leader trying this I would pee in my pants. I thought there were a couple thin/unprotected reachy 5.9 moves. 20 feet up. The rest is trivial.

Comments: Approach: You have to go through 2 ravines. The father and son area is about 500 yards after the second ravine. If you find yourself going up iron reebar steel steps for about 8 feet with a rope ladder, then you will approach the Father and Son climb. About 100 feet to your right when you get to the top of the ladder. This is the beginning/left end of the global village. The right/east end is about 1/4 mile further to your right. There is path down low and up high.

Rappel: 70 meter will get you... more >>

Comments: We tried to climb when it was moist and not possible. All the holds have buckets of water and moss and fungus in them. You have to let it dry out for a couple days.

We camped at:
plus.google.com/11099173902463...

Cedar Lake Campground for 2 nights $15/night. Wifi, electricity, showers, super friendly people. Showers need to be cleaned and redone but usable.
But this is about 5 miles from JF.

Comments: #1 I don't think you were on the right route, lot harder than 5.9. You have to stay on boltline, not to the right of bolt line that is too easy.
#2 Yes, like the tag says, the top 20 feet is closed its loose
#3 Yes, like every new route it needs traffic to get clean especially after rain.

Comments: While one of the best 5.9's trads in the state (big holds, overhang, good gear) - it is a death route. Do not put cams on the flake on the right or you will have most the climb fall down on you. The huge flake moves if you put a cam in it, and it holds up the rest of the climb. I am hoping the originals would mark it or annotate the description.

I used 2 #4's, one to start and one once over the overhang. Also a #2 past the second overhang. Needs slings for the overhang.

Comments: Just a heads up on the mining issues. Read an article Dec 7th local paper.

Resolution Copper is prospecting the largest copper deposit known to mankind..literally. Queens Creek is sitting on top of it. Currently there is bill in Congress to do a landswap of US forest land (oak flats, road to LDC) for other land so they can start operations. The mine will be underground 1.5 miles, but the land will shift so they don't want anyone on top when it all collapses. They are in the processes of cajoli... more >>

Comments: I was a newbie with no book or directions. So here it is.

From Echo Canyone parking lot look up to Monks Rock. if you can't see it you should not be climbing. Directly below it is the HeadWall, about 300 feet long and has various climbs on it. Above the headwall is Monk Rock. Behind Monk Rock (but starts at same level) is Gargoyol Wall where the bees swarm and kill people. On the left of Gargoyl is Hart Route were bees kill people.

From Echo Canyon parking lot haul your ass up the trail to fir... more >>

Comments: There are 3 pitches to the 5.6. 2nd pitch is 5.4'ish - loose rock. 3rd pitch uses WIDE WIDE gear up flake. You can see the achors from the top of the 5.8 climb on the right.

Comments: How it got its name:


"On a final note, the name “Quickdraw moves to Hollywood” has a story like most of the route names I come up with. Back when I climbed at RW a lot and was helping with development I had a good friend – Kelly Gorder. We hung out and climbed a lot together. He put quite a few routes up at RW. New kids, and Kelly’s arête are a couple of them. Anyhow he had a dog named Quickdraw. Like a lot of dogs Quickdraw was a lover. Happy just to know you. Well Kelly and his... more >>

Comments: Oh yeah, when I replaced the anchors, I turned the old 3" bolt and the rock just fractured and the bolt fell out with rock crumbles in my hand. So I put 5" bolts in and left the last 3" bolt as the "Hail Mary". That's why there is 10' of chain up there.

Comments: IMHO, this is THE classic 5.11 at RW. Crack, face, overhang, crimpers, devious slopey finish when you are spent. And the view is fantastic. Anadonia can't compare, 1 move wonder.
