Comments: The road to perdition finish adds a good amount of fine climbing to cap off an already stellar day if linked with the lower wall. Look for the 2 chain belay (weird) at the base of the route with a steel brush tied onto it. To the right of this is a notable left facing corner that starts out rather low angle, and ramps up into a chossy pod. Below this pod and to the left is the first bolt.

Comments: No gear above a #2 necessary. One bolt at the wide section. 2 ring bolt anchor. Get your grrr on for the start after which is great crack climbing! To bad there aren't more 11a's in the canyon.

Seems like this climb was named after the approach! You never know what's in the jungle...

Comments: There are several microwave blocks on this thing that sound rather disconcerting. Beware of these while placing gear, and definitely don't let people linger beneath you while you're climbing. Overall a fun route, but just beware those hollow blocks.

Comments: There are more gear placements than bolts on this thing. Worth a spin on gear only if you've done it before (or haven't). nuts through big fingers.

Comments: The better quality start for this is essentially directly across the gully from "cTr 5.10a" on the west face of the challenge buttress. It entails about 30ft of easy 5th to a nice hand crack. Naturally there are some suspect areas of rock, but that's just a nice reminder to stay on your toes for the entirety of the ridge.

Comments: A great 5.9 that is long. On par with something like the diving board in terms of diffculty, but with better gear.

Comments: A nice way to approach this is to climb batwings, and then find the rap station for "Pave Paradise". That puts you on the large midway ledge which you traverse 100ft to the start of this route. After which you can rap PP again to with a single 70m.

Comments: The single 70m rap beta is as follows:

Rap from summit pitch belay (2 bolts with chain, and a random SMC hanger glued in) directly toward Dolomite tower. The station you're aiming for can be seen at the edge of a large ledge facing the river. The belay consists of 2 expansion bolts (1 glued SMC hanger bolt, 1 cold shut bolt, and a single star drive equalized with chain and cord).

The next rap is a perfect 35m rap directly to the ground. You are now rapping past the NE face route, and it's anc... more >>

Comments: Fun fact:

The stone at this crag is known as the Gartra Grit, and similar to but not the same as the quartzite in BCC or the Olympus massif.

Comments: This is about 10/10+ to the first anchor depending on either your knee size or calf lock skills.

Comments: Go left for a harder variation albeit with some grit. Going right at the fork reduces the difficulty, but also probably keeps the rock quality higher.

Comments: A bunch of the tree was removed for this 30ft route. 20 feet of climbing to a few 5easy moves to finish with a final bolt that is positioned poorly.

Comments: Got any pics? Hard to imagine this is right of barefoot as there is just a tree there, and then a gully. Did they chop down a significant amount of that tree?

Comments: Bioturbation is the disturbance of soil/sediment by living things. So it can be above or below sea level. Maybe they saw some creature borrowing when up at the wall or noted the cows trampling the soil in the valley floor?
