The cool belay spot. After the crux and some 5.9 you get to this spot. A very old bolt, placed on the FA is still there. Amazing historical piece, please leave it alone. Levy and Rachel caught up to u

Comments: The Climb "All Along The Watchtower" was climbed in 1976 by John Long and crew.

It follows the prominent Right Hand Book to almost the end of the book before traversing off to the right via rivet and bad bolt ladder, a pendulum gets you to the prominent crack and that crack gets you above the big roof system. John and crew escaped to the left at this point and joined Galen's route .... to the summit.

In 1975 I made three attempts to climb this with good experienced wall climbers.

Do not try ... more >>

Comments: Only one is 5.10... the first one on your right as you enter the canyon. Bolts plus gear... 120 feet long if I recall. Can't lower with a 60m without shenanigans. One of the best ones here.
Next to it a 5.11 b/c?? I have never touched it .
The next 4 or 5 climbs are all 13... again I have never touched, belayed Eric on one of the 12s marked in the guide. All he said was "yea right.."

Keep going and you slip into a alcove, Flight of the Valkyries... 11b? but bold and burly and long and anothe... more >>

Comments: Randy... you have all of that pretty much correct.
So you say the 5.9 to the right of Fall Colors has been retrobolted?? How about the crack system to the right of that? forget the name, some 5.9 with no bolts at the bottom.
get Scott Looms, last known location, Ridgecrest CA... he knows or Herb...he climbs.

Comments: Ha... just looked at this... Jacob L. if you think this is a Tuff Hike,Kern River climbing is not for you. This is without question the easiest hike around.......

70m is probably a good thing to have. When this place was being developed... late 70's early 80's Sportclimbing was not even thought of, everyone climbed on 50's with a extra 50 at the ready. Putting in extra bolts was sort of frowned on.

On top of KS is some of the best bouldering in the Canyon... its worth checking out as well as... more >>

Comments: Very nice. We came in from below so I never was able to see this view. It shows it all, the regular route up from below along the left side of big pillar. The route you did up the obvious crack... and Spike hairdoo out to the left.

Comments: Really good climb on some of the best stone at the tunnels. I think the crux is at the top, getting to the last bolt and clipping it and climbing the last 15 feet, took me more than a few tries..... the fall is long, clean and scary.

Comments: Nice shot.....

When you do that move, the desperate part is behind you. You have really good holds, but don't pull the slicer off....
