Comments: If you climb 12a then this is a must for you. Excellent climbing.

Comments: I must like this route as I usually climb it when I am up at the Baby Rubicon

Comments: A great route? Probably not. The most climbed route at Crawdad Canyon. Yes. For many people this may be their first sample of rock climbing. Bored but wanting to warm up and put up the rope for the beginners in your group? Then climb the route 3 different ways. Up the center. Using the crack to the left. Undercling the crack to the right. All back to back.

Comments: I often climb this route when I am at the Fly Trap wall. The top 4 bolts are on excellent rock and require sustained climbing at the 5.11 grade. Don't miss this route or the route Moucha immediately to the left.

Comments: The begining of the climb is directly over a metal railing. I usually stick clip the first two bolts to avoid falling and impaling myself on the metal post. Tricky crimping to a blocky undercling then easier face climbing to the anchor. Nice basalt face climbing.

Comments: Another one of my favorite routes at this crag. Long and interesting climbing. I kind of like the flake section but as long as it stays solid. So far it seems fine.

Comments: We always climb this route if we are in the area. Short but pumpy and a crescendo climb. You can finish by climbing to the left of the chains, but a dyno to a good hold on the lip is the most exciting way to top out.

Comments: I really like this route and often use it as one of my warm up climbs. Nice long route with fun movement. If you are breaking into leading a 5.10 climb you might find this a good one to go for.

Comments: I actually enjoyed this route. There are definitely better 5.10 routes to be had at this crag. Worth climbing if you are on this section of the wall.

Comments: The fall above the slabby ramp could hurt you. Be solid at leading hard 5.9 routes before attempting. Having said that, the top portion has fun climbing.

Comments: I rebolted the climb a few days ago. I used stainless steel glue-ins (Wave Bolts) by climbtec. It has 5 bolts to chain anchors. I also tried to position the bolts to make it more top-rope friendly but the climb does naturally traverse a few feet to the left. I hope people continue to enjoy this less than average route as I notice that it gets heavy traffic. Probably because it is the only "easy" climb at Chuckawalla.

Comments: Todd Perkins re-bolted the climb today (2-13-2015) with stainless steel glue in bolts. The anchor was also replaced. Jorge Visser the first ascentionist was present at the crag today and climbed it in good style. It was first put up in 1992 according to Jorge.

Comments: Encountered wasps on the route a couple of days ago. No sign of a large hive, but it still was unnerving to have them buzzing around you and landing on some of the holds.

Comments: I find the best climbing conditions are sometimes in the winter. A sunny day combined with the south facing black basalt rock makes it surprisingly comfortable even with snow on the ground at the rim and across the canyon in the shade. Even now I rarely encounter other climbers when I spend the day climbing here. With large ponderosa pines and the sound of the trout stream bubbling below it is a great escape for a day of climbing.
