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.

Comments: You actually move left at the "blank" crux section, then back to the right on good holds.

Comments: It can be done as DWS if the water is high enough, just be sure to check the depth thoroughly before attempting

Comments: I'm not sure if anyone ever sent it or not. The crux move is at least V5-6, so you can update the grade to 12+ if you want (the redriverclimbing.com online guide grade and Muir valley tag at the base are wrong)

Comments: These have all been climbed before.

EDIT: It isn't even the "First Recorded Ascent" (whatever that is) -- a guidebook was published in the 1990s. If you don't know the FA info, just leave it blank.

Comments: Agreed about the bulge bolt. Will probably move it left sometime, or if someone else has the time and (stainless) gear...

Comments: This cliff probably has the most perfect aspect of all the crags in the Red... two faces so you can chase sun and shade as needed, and for the most part the main left wall is shady all summer and sunny all winter (until 2 or so anyway)
