Comments: we tried to buy the printable guide. After payment it never sent us to a printing feature, still haven't checked to see if we were actually charged for the guide. Seems like everybody there was showing up with some version of MP's printable guide.

Comments: Just did the 2nd pitch for the first time. Ha I had an easier time climbing Reefer Madness, but fist jamming isn't so easy for a sporty guy like me. New 10 leaders, beware!!

Comments: Wow I need to practice pulling roofs as this one got me! Hit the pocket high and to the left, moved through all three pockets on the right, but couldn't yank my long body high enough to get my damn feet up!! Super cruz up to that part though. Watch out 10 leaders it'll get ya!!

Comments: Whatever happened with this place? I see the posts are 5 yrs old, and none of the boulders show any routes. Can you still boulder there? Is it even worth it if the rock is crumbly sand?

Comments: Sadly, the "marker" looks a bit more like a paint pen. Having not been to the cliffs in 2 years, it was a shame to see some MORON'S "handy" work disgracing the crag. This IDIOT should be shot for not following Leave No Trace ethics. If such an Insult to the crag wasn't enough, the climbs are miss labeled or not including at all. TOTAL IDIOT!! YOU SHOULD QUIT CLIMBING!!!!

Comments: 5? bolts, I believe. 2 down low, big gap, then 3 more and anchor. Bottom seems like the crux, but continuous 5.11c after the second bolt, I thought.

Comments: Well a Local just told me this may be the hardest ten in the gorge and those crimps at the 5th bolt leave something to be desired when trying to clip with an ankle buster waiting for you when you blow. Over all amazing climb every move is a ten move but it ain't a gimmie for a 10 or 11 a/b climber.

Comments: Anybody, now the climb that starts low and to the right of this boulder? Use the big hole as a foot once up there, and then move right so a sloper finish? It basically adds a sit start to this climb, nothing harder just longer.

Comments: Hey, maybe the route description should be changed. I was in the park last year when the rock fell. Scared the *&$^ out of me even though I was bouldering elsewhere it was SO DAMN loud. Headed up to do Rewritten and noticed the route still mentions the no longer existing rock. I understand if it stays for historical purposes, but a (no longer) mid sentence would work, too. Cheers.

Comments: I hear (&see as posted) October is great at Joe's, but what about Mid to Late September? too hot? just right early morning late afternoon? or shady spots of canyon? Any beta the Sept weather would be sweet: thanks!

Comments: Guide book says first route was unknown even before Stan Price put up Home Alone in the 80's, and that Charlie Kardaleff did set this route, fyi. Great route!! When busy at 10 Sleep lines form here.

Comments: Hmm, I thought I liked chimneys. This one... not so much. I too got my gear loop caught on the second clip scared the shit out of me. This climb felt like every bolt was behind you.

Comments: Climbing the right side of the arete is a must do. Way fun bouldery moves. Power and balance make the moves fun and easier. I'm not an expert on shady bolts or chains, but I do like shiny ones instead of the rusty ones at the top of this climb.
