Comments: Definitely worth a try if you are local- Will test your OS game for sure!

Watch out for the rope grabber crack when pulling, or better yet, pull from below Cave Dweller.

Comments: I can't say too many good things about this route!! Its such a BLAST! IMO it goes a bit harder than 12a though, possibly due some exfoliation. Pretty "In your face" right off the deck, with a beautifully flowing set of moves until the smack down crux pulling the bulge to clips. Absolutely worthwhile pitch to hike out for ( 5/10 minutes from Camp 3)

Comments: This route is a stand out for sure, Short...but powerful and dynamic FUN! The arbitrary hold that Michael mentions blew off today but definitely has zero effect on the grade. I was also curious about the fang shaped under-cling and it does look and feel suspect, especially because you might be inclined to match on it and that is a lot of outward pulling. I vote for glue... Id be willing to re-enforce it myself on my next trip out if there are no objections. If that crucial hold comes off, its d... more >>

Comments: Jordan... That is hilarious! ...and makes so much sense.

BTW, I was up there yesterday trying more of the *new* stuff... I noticed that there is a 7th bolted line to the right of The Snake ( that is to say, there are 2 lines right of the Snake, one would be Toxic Box, the other is a few from it) Any ideas?

Note: This wall does actually get shade till about 9am. Much needed beta for the early morning senders

Comments: There is a dead rattlesnake in the most interesting place here.. Looks like he got halfway a crack just right of Catalina. Perhaps he got stuck and gave up... so sad. Hard as a rock in may 2016

Comments: The kid brother of "Freakshow" at the Fairway. Very fun and unique climbing traversing up the wall into the Hidden Valley. Super well bolted, but still an attentive belay will keep you off the deck. The upper section is even closer to the ground, but the chain draws are very well placed to keep you safe IMO.

Comments: AWESOME route! Fun bouldery and cryptic moves to the second bolt. Shares anchors with "Red Tape" to the right. Currently has 2 bolt anchors with biners to lower.

Comments: Super fun line! Slightly overhanging and crimpy through the crux. Come climb this! Prep to rap, as the description says, anchors are 6-8 feet back on an a smaller wall above the ledge.... no big deal

Comments: " 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 NEW Fixe 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 >>
