Comments: i would not recommend this to a beginner! if they manage to get above the first bolt without wigging and getting flipped upside down by a slack jawed belayer, a few other cruxes await them. that being said, if you are a competent 5.10 climber you will love twist and shout! ankles away is the beginner climb, and even it is no gimme at the bottom.

Comments: i have tent camped here in the past . i thought it was quite satisfactory. the parking for jamestown is quite secluded. the only people that are going to be back there are climbers. your stuff should be safe. note: it's been a couple of years since i have been to j/t so take everything with a grain of salt.

Comments: glad that tree finally fell down. just wish it hadn't decided to fall on anti-scoop's start.

Comments: Hornet nest has taken up shop in tree near this route. Probably should avoid 'till they are gone.

Comments: the cool weather may tame them down, but as of 10/06/12 there is a yellow jacket nest at the base of this climb. they were quite active and not a fan of us being there. do alchemy instead!

Comments: 19 sport routes and 15 mixed/trad currently on our side. lots of trees = shade. no litter. keep it down so we don't draw the ire of the landowners above.
