Comments: Perhaps this pitch should be described as " A Link Up".... for better clarity, due to its single independent bolt and move that connects Good Girls to Delusions?

Also, not to be confused with the newer and now "leftmost" variation of Delusions which splits of 15 feet below Delusions chains and climbs cable draws through the bulge to the left of Mohawk.

Comments: Does anyone have an beta on the routes on the north side as far as order and location? Iwould gather something like this:

1) Red Tail Arete
2) Brown Recluse
3) One Eyed Jack?
4) Black Widow? ( with a right split line?)

The seemingly right most bolt line splits a few bolts up and the left way goes through a short Dihedral/chimney ending at chains with a plastic Hawaiian hula figurine.. The right variant appears to go over the bulge and has separate anchors?

One eyed jack is described as bei... more >>

Comments: + 1 on the creaky hold. Really cool Crux, but 2 Star climbing above.

This route starts at the double benches that bask in the glory of the boulder which is enshrined by spectacularly erotic petroglyphs.

Comments: 6 feet below the anchors and just to the left, there is a hefty block hanging precariously. Once you pass it, you can see that it's chained to the wall above and glued in place. After witnessing the huge exfoliation on the routes to the left; Culture Shock and Double agent ( and ending up finishing on this route to avoid the 30 foot runout and bird poop varnish that was hidden behind the fallen flakes) I found this chained up block and it was uber spooky. Be warned, since the block its... more >>

Comments: Unfortunately, the MP app still doesn't show Wizards comments about the route being "Closed" Perhaps a Red "Access Issue" note might be appropriate until this route and Double Agent are cleaned up and missing bolts added from the recent granite explosion?

There is really not much to warn of the conditions above and out of sight.

That being said--- Wizard, are you doing the maintenance? And if so do you need any assistance or fundage? This climb kicks ASS... and would love to see it restored ... more >>

Comments: Does anyone know the name and ratings of the small roadside wall that is immediately climbers right of the Valentine wall, across the road? This short wall sits literally on the road, belay from gravel and is a stones throw from Valentine and the camp sites that are all next to each other by the White Wall. There are 2 overhanging routes on it facing the road with a few bolts a piece.

Additionally, Anyone know the name of the route on Boy Scout Wall that sits between Three Giant Steps and Reac... more >>

Comments: Great little spot! Thanks to the folks that did recent updates of some new belay area benches. Lots of cleaning needs to happen here on the walls, but the base area is nice. Great views of the Pacific!

Comments: Came here today and had a great time! It would seem like some good parking beta might be to park past the boulder up the short dirt road to the left of the quarry gate. This puts you even closer ( farther up the hill as well) to the Moderate wall side of the crag and gets your rig off the road out of sight. We had an interesting encounter with a local that has property up the road in which he parked by our car, walked circles around it then stood there watching us for 30 minutes and messing with... more >>

Comments: This is a really great short gently overhanging line. A fresh breath from the standard overhanging ghetto fare. I left some biners on the chains for easy laps, hope they stay!

Comments: Kens comments Circa 2012 lead me to believe that he was on Cattle Drive, as we made the same mistake. The 2008 Guide doesn't show C.D.

The crack at the top is really very good. But 8 ft is a bit shy. I would say a solid 15-20 feet from the last bolt to the anchors.

Comments: Not in the 2008 Guide. This climb is easily mistaken for Really Really- Hence the crappy rock comments. This is a new pitch and climbs the left side of the "Upper" Zoo section. Its actually quite fun, but confusing if you think you are on Really Really ( Which starts dead center of the upper wall)

Also- Unless I am mistaken, the term " Cattle Drive" cannot be found in the epic film Zoolander.

Comments: Approaching directly from the parking area, while deviously simple looking, is more difficult than approaching from the north side: Instead, Head north from the parking area past the Hoodgie Wall and Truffle tower. A small gully leads you up easily to a notch between Truffle and the backside of the Biscuit. Go south through the notch and find the 2x6 plank bridges that lead up into the Biscuit corridor.

B.J. Please keep your grammar comments reserved to minimal spray levels, Gracias.

Comments: Spray Alert- This climb is absolutely worth the trouble in finding it! SUPER fun, dynamic movement down low- Hueco kneebar rests- leading to the cruxy crack/bulge combo. Don't get pumped or the top will spit you off! :)

Comments: LOVED IT!!! Full value all the way! to the chains. But a bit of confusion on where it started lead me accidentally climb the first part of Supernova and clip the Focus chains ( thinking supernova was focus ) So I went back and climbed Focus and then kept climbing the second half of Supernova...the now birthed, UltraClassic- "SuperFocus"

Also- add me to the list of Upgraders- I thought it was almost as hard as Venom and Santana, especially the last 20 Ft.

Comments: This climb was raining holds today. Literally rock falling off, good news is thats its ready for your send now. ( lewie, get back here with some more glue!) Once it was a high star 11d- now who knows? Seems WORLDS harder than Geezer 12a and Immaculate 12a nearby ( or even Java 11d) . This pitch needs a new consensus.
