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: Wow, 10 bolts now. I can't recall any climb of Eddy's that has 10 bolts. So this is the new way, I guess.

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

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.

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.
