Comments: Layback a crack to obtain the high first bolt, being mindful of the nearby tree. From here easily clip the second bolt prior to committing to the face. Meander through a series of broken strenuous moves before finally pulling a two foot roof to reach the chains

Contrary to its appearance and length, I found this route to be surprisingly enjoyable with unique, challenging moves on solid rock.

5 bolts to chains.

Comments: This wall can be reached by hiking along the base of Rose Hill Crag. The cliffs are part of the same formation but separated by stout, low angle rock and a small tower.

Climbers and belayers should be mindful of the trees near both these routes. Both routes were quite enjoyable and they may be partially shaded on sunny days.

Comments: The Gift at 5.12+. If you don't already have a copy Squeezing The Lemmon is a great resource.

Comments: An aptly named line due to both the odd style and the dramatic change of character at the crux. My enjoyment of this line grew as my confidence in the rock quality increased.

Comments: I share your route climbing philosophy; if I clip all the bolts I am on route. I climbed the route prior to checking Mountain Project and thus was initially baffled, thinking I had missed something. I eventually settled on climbing the route exactly as you suggested in the description.

Comments: Kudos to the developers for the new routes.

In late March most routes stay shaded until 1:30pm.

A number of the lines felt squeezed as I found myself questioning whether I was off the intended line. This was particularly true on Infrared Heart and Over and Back as Corner Exit was sometimes nearby. As is often the case the rules of climbing are arbitrary.

Comments: A nice route with fun moves. The vertical flakes and knobs can be avoided by climbing the juggy arete to the right. The steep short headwall can be surmounted at least three ways: low and left, high and left, or using by the ramp out right. I believe high and left was the intended variation.

Comments: Thanks for the feedback. I haven't touched the guide in 5 years so it will remain erroneous for the foreseeable future. Sorry Cres!

Comments: You may very well be correct. Once it is posted a consensus grade can form. No matter the grade it is the best of three routes. The others aren't bad just short compared to their peers.

Comments: An awesome rope-stretching route! While it is all enjoyable, the top third is spectacular. Thanks for the addition.

Comments: Jon, are you interested in rewriting this entry? If so I'll reassign it to you.

Thanks for being amiable to revisions, Tony B. Reassigning the route is definitely preferred to deleting.

Comments: I need to get out more as I still remember this from weeks ago.

BETA WARNING

Traverse from the left using crimps and small feet to clip the second to last bolt. Clipping from here was a reach for me at 6'0" +0; the FAist would have had to do the moves before clipping. Move part way back and step up with the right foot to reach the ledge just above the second to last bolt. Traverse to just right of the bolt line. Use crimps to work your feet up. High left heel hook or toe ... more >>

Comments: Scamper up and traverse a grungy ledge to obtain the first bolt. In an about-face the ledges and choss give way to near-vertical, sparsely featured, solid face. Dance with your fingers and toes over edges, crimps, and nubs. After a brief exhale at the forth bolt, decipher a disappointingly smooth lip to reach a recessed crack. Trend right using large edges and a horizontal crack past two bolts to the summit.

6 bolts to recessed anchors shared with Valdez is Coming. We found it best to belay f... more >>

Comments: I climbed it in a single pitch, clipping all the bolts, and noticed no rope drag. I would have unclipped the third bolt as suggested but was unable to easily do so.

Comments: In late November I found the sun/shade situation to be as follows:

  • Beer Garden: An hour of afternoon sun; otherwise fully shaded. The left side of the wall sees more sun than the right.
  • The Heater: Very sunny in the morning. Likely sees late afternoon shade.
