Comments: Historical note: people started formally "rock climbing" here as early as the 30s and 40s. Last time around it was closed to climbing was in the mid-70s.

Comments: Awesome pitch. The diagonaling-left crack low start to the low start adds quite a bit of pump and difficulty to this route.

Comments: Vegetated and more like 11b, but incredible climbing. Cleaned a decent size block at the lower crux and beefed up the anchor, but it still needs actual hardware. The runout up top is for real, with huge slab whipper potential.

Comments: Seems like about half the hangers in the Canyon are spinning these days. Lots of stuff due for an upgrade to glue-ins sometime soon. In the meantime, bring a wrench to retighten what will still turn and avoid this place like the plague on weekends.

Comments: First rap from the Meadows needs some chain pretty badly, as the current setup adds a ton of drag right at the anchor. In the meantime, pull the right strand of your rope rather than the left to minimize the chance of the rope getting stuck up top.

Comments: Didn't encounter any monos on this one. Excellent power-endurance face climbing on perfect rock. A touch harder than Mohicans IMO.

Comments: Fun route. Bolts on the wrong side of arete up top should be rethought.
