Comments: Chaindraws on bolts 3 & 4 have been removed. Setting the draws and cleaning the route is now more of a hassle. While they may not have been there originally they were certainly handy. The route and area already has glue and chaindraws. Can they be restored?

Thanks for the quicklinks Eric! Lazy climbers like myself applaud your efforts.

Comments: In mid-June this route sees shade at approximately 3pm. There are patches of shade on both the ground and route earlier.

Comments: Tree Top Flyer is a 13 bolt route of inconsistent difficulty that ascends wonderful terrain. In mid-June this route sees shade around 1:30pm. Prior to this there is patchy shade for the belayer.

Comments: 8 bolts to a chain anchor. Some might use a stick clip as the first bolt is high; however, the climbing isn't too difficult and the landing is flat. The route is shaded until approximately 2pm.

I climbed this route following the path of least resistance and ended up using the wide crack / arete from bolts 5 to 7. Restricting yourself to the face just seems silly as I was never more than an arms length from the bolt line. Climbed in this manner the route is around 12a and quite fun... more >>

Comments: A wonderful route, reminiscent of Knights of the Wrong Tissue. Perform a hard move to obtain the first bolt. Awkward feet and a long reach yield a jug and the second bolt. From here traverse along a rail and into a full rest. The second half and crux of the climb is classic Mount Lemmon tipped back edging. A well-deserved jug haul leads past the last bolt to the chains.

Comments: Are you sure you had a full 70m rope, EFR? I was able to climb it without issues.

Comments: The stemming on this route is grin inducing. While I would have to look at it again to be confirm, falling while pulling the featured lip might be ugly due to the low angle climbing below.

Comments: Thanks for developing and sharing a beautiful crag with fantastic climbing. I am loving the routes both technically and aesthetically.

Comments: This is a wonderful and sustained route. However, I would not call it slab. It is near vertical delicate face climbing. Despite having no holds break I had trouble trusting a number of the small crystals, which slightly detracted from my experience - with traffic or additional cleaning that might change. Finally the chain could be extended and old webbing removed. This current setup twisted our rope.

Comments: I believe this route has been extended. There are now three sets of anchors. The lowest anchors come after the hardest and best climbing. The second set are slightly higher but too recessed and likely the reason folks have complained of rope drag. The third and final set comes after an additional three or so bolts. The climbing is less than vertical and on slightly mossy terrain. This section adds length but not much else.

Comments: I took the liberty of reassigning this orphaned page to myself. I swapped 'Dwarves' with 'Drawfs', updated the elevation, and rewrote the description. I do not believe the route Aggro-culture exists as a sport route. Perhaps it is an old trad route?

Below is the previous description for comparison.

Wall of the Dancing Dwarfs prior to my edit.

I also updated Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain and Scarecrow to include the second pitches.

Please alert me to any corrections.

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: 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!
