Comments: There is a chockstone ready to fall out half way up the second pitch. It seems somewhat secure when pushed down but I gave it a lite tap upwards and it moved very easily. It's about 1' around and large enough to be serious.

Comments: Everything about the tower scares the crap out of me. I swear I could feel it move under my feet. The climbing is not hard but I could not get comfortable until i was above the tower. Glad I wasn't the one standing under it to belay.

Comments: Alternate approach: head up the road west from the parking area, turn north past the building foundation. Cross the wash completely and turn west again. You should be above the wash. Take this trail until it ends at the base of north side of canyon mouth. Turn south and then head up the ramp to the base of the climb. Both ways get you there but staying above the wash is a little faster/easier.

Comments: We did the 2nd pitch only after Broad Borders. I would rate the 2nd pitch as 5.9 or maybe 5.9+ on the one move over the bulge.

Comments: We did Broad Border and then linked it with the upper pitch of Behavior Issues. Routes are new and it feels like every hold is going to come off. This will get a little harder as it loses some of it's marginal holds. Overall well protected. Had the belayer tied off to the bolt 15' to right with the end of the rope to keep them from getting pulled off in the event of a fall.

Comments: Really fun crag of 5.9 to 5.10's. Each route is consistently high quality. Most other locations have 1 or 2 good routes along with a bunch of crap. These are all good routes worth doing.

We didn't have any problems with the rock quality but if I had read the issue about the washers I would have taken a socket with me.

Comments: Pretty good route with a variety of climbing; jugs, crimps, slab. It may get a little harder as hold break off but the holds that are suspect are in areas with an abundance of holds so it shouldn't change the route much.

Will be a great place to teach multipitch skills (much better than Mans Best Friend).

Comments: I have sorted the routes from left to right. The routes start at the lower level left side, then to the upper level left, then to the upper level right side, then finally the right lower level. The routes go clockwise from the first route on the left around to the first route on the right.

There are a few routes in middle of the lower right area that may be out of order. Please let me know if there are any changes that need to be made.

Comments: John it is easier to take the wash. I will make sure to take that route next time and replace the map.

Comments: Hope this helps. Map from the 2nd pullout parking lot to the entrance of Black Corridor. This is for 1 of 3 possible routes and does go around the potholes for when they are full of water.

Comments: Fun route. Like Sponsors Wanted the hardest move is getting of off the ground. Has a slab section in the middle that could be more difficult for people not comfortable with slab.

Comments: Stick clip or be solid getting to the first bolt. A fall probably wouldn't break anything but you would lose a lot of skin.

Comments: Fun climb with a little bit of everything. There is a very large flake on the right side that possibly going to come off soon. Keep the rope and body parts out from under it when you are belaying.

Comments: All good routes. The approach is somewhat of a bear. This may help keep the traffic down on this wall. Most of these routes may get a little harder as hold break off.
