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: Don't lead this .... The stone is quite soft. Way back in the day... I tried to and fell at crux.. Pulled 3 bomber placements and decked. One of the better TRs at Stoney

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....

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 >>
