Comments: This is a nice little Crag, short but sweet. The Double dome is in the Shade in the AM. The sun comes overhead about 2:30 (mid August)
Agree with the ratings being sort of sandbagged and a stick clip is handy or bring a pad.

Comments: If you stay with the bolt line, and not with the "Natural Line" .... the crack 4 feet left of the bolt. The climbing is about 5.10. Follow the crack, its a 5.7. The bolting on Double dome is sort of weird.... maybe Rap Bolted without any TR preview????

Comments: Was there last Saturday, 6-27-15 this climb has 5 bolts, it needs its own anchors up from the last bolt. 10B- that is about right.

Comments: Ill toss in my .02, Im not a local, but I live in Ventura county. I climb at Wheeler about 5-6 times per year......

The whole Ecominique, Goulda arete is a messed up piece of rock. First off is the way up- off the deck first bolt.... WTF? Is that little bit of death climbing supposed to prove something? On a 10A?

The Next time im there... I bring the gear, plug it in and climb, the route is pretty nice... but with the disintegration of the lower features (pulled cobbles)I'll never recommend t... more >>

Comments: Bolted sort of weird, the location of the bolts, but its Mikes first try at this stuff. I thought it was 10-, harder then Ezra. The friction at the top had my attention.

Comments: I have a funny story. ... One day back in 1976, I was working on my map project at CSUN. Looking at aerial/stereo photos of the west side... old school google earth.

I was able to get a thin blade of stone into focus and....dam, that's a spire!! Looking around I was able to find the road and the next Friday, Eric Ericsson, Nick Baderka and I were headed north on 99.

At the logging roads end, the 12:30 am darkness only added to my partners skepticism of the entire expedition. With the rising s... more >>

best way off of that ledge.

Comments: This is a good way to reach the upper central ledge system. Go left- up at the first set of chains. (60 m goes to ground)
Some good climbs go from this Ledge.
EZ est is over to the left.
30 m up is another "ledge" not as well defined as the lower one. One can use the 4 sets of anchors to TR all the good climbs found below, the TRs are all in the 5.10 ez to11 range, depending on where you go.
IMHO.... this place is an example of why rap bolting, in its early years at least, was wrong. Some of... more >>

Comments: 2014 UPDATE..... The sign that says Taylor Mdw that a way, and Taylor Creek that a ways, is back. So the drive instructions are now pretty much correct.

Please note, Some folks call the climbs here "SPORT CLIMBS". Some are and some are not. The place was partialy developed in the late 80's by people who will not pass up a good gear placement. Many of the climbs need gear, mostly stoppers and slings over and around knobs, water runnels. The bolted anchors are not always a 1/2 rope lenght to the ... more >>

Comments: Randy... so you did these?

When?

you know there are now many more climbs now?

Is this Sushi thing a TR left of the ezyest climb, the one with the first bolt about 6 feet of the deck? Just trying to orient myself to the crag.

Got any photos?

Comments: Tristan is right on, I did a tr on it, when in the sun, slippery holds for sure. When TRing its best to clip the 2nd bolt to keep one from slamming into the ground behind you.

I was told that the FA and the rating comes from Tom Guilge (sp?) an uber strong dude for sure.

Best in the morning shade
