Comments: I suppose it is true for any slabby route, it is better in cool temps, seemed really hard on a sweaty day. This is a tough 5.9, after the spooky run-out near the start, one pulls up onto a ledge that feels committing moving above your last pro. Then the crux getting into a shallow flaring crack.

Comments: Beware of bad rusty machine bolts, someone did replace the anchor, now has 1/2" SS bolts.

Comments: Pretty easy, but may be intimidating to the 5.8 leader, with it's mid way bulge, juggy holds await. Don't fall too much, the rusty 1/4" machine bolts look worse as every year goes by.

Comments: Jon Nelson, some more consolidation:

This area has a nice topo that shows how these various little areas could be combined, I would title it " Lower Icicle Canyon"
Add:

Surf City
Trundle Dome
Backslider.

Comments: Ryan, this sounds like a cool area, will have to visit if I ever get up to Value Village. There is another route already called the Guillotine in Icicle Canyon, down by Purina.

Comments: Thumbstruck has 10 bolts in 25 m, this and Pro belay have 6 bolts in 22m, in 2008 I was comfortable leading up to 10d sport and I found this pretty unnerving, I think I even got some tiny nuts in.

Comments: I like probably others looked at this wall and thought wow there must be climbs here, how could something so close be overlooked? Looks like great stuff, and done in great style, nice job! I can't wait to check it out.

Comments: Jon, I don't think Pearly gates quite works here, seems too far away and people will not know to look for it here. It actually deserves it's own area. But if one were to make an area called Snow creek drainage area, it could be included.

Comments: Jon, I would create an area called 8 mile campground area, add this and Stones Throw and Veterans club to it, and J/Y crag.
