Comments: Never been, but it's awesome that you took the time to do a line that you've done before and upgrade fixed gear and clean up tat. So thanks.

Comments: It stays dry when there's a straight downpour- like in the late spring and summer. With misty, wind-driven rain, and with the added water of melting snow runoff, almost everything was wet- even routes like this one that are notoriously dry when everything else is wet. It is a sweet route though.

Comments: Wasps in a finger pod about 3/4 of the way up on 3/15, between the little tree/rest stance and the bashie. I'm with Sam. I'm not a really proficient 5.11 climber, but the start felt pretty difficult for me, especially right off the ground. I had to layback most of the initial corner because I guess my fingers are so thin, I couldn't get any solid locks. It definitely eases up as you ascend, and the awesome jams and locks as you go up are really rewarding.

Comments: This one's not R at all IMHO. Good small horizontal right off the ground, a couple of bomber nuts in the middle and one textbook #1 C4 near the top.

Comments: GWB when you say anchor, does that mean a bolted anchor or some other type of fixed gear? Thanks

Comments: Just got on this thing this past weekend. The layback/squeeze chimney (I laid it back) was the hardest and headiest part. I can see how the moves off the ledge could be considered R but they're really not. There's a bomber .4 at your feet, and you crimp a few times to a jug from which you can place a bomber cam in a horizontal. I agree with hitting the ledge though- if you mean the smaller ledge (the one that the pictured climber is standing on), not the one that is formed by the detached bl... more >>

Comments: Yeah. Def. not Block Route because it's below the Arch, not beside it.

Comments: Pics can be deceiving. The first pitch of this thing is a pretty serious lead. I mean, the whole thing is, but especially the first pitch, and particularly up to the first bolt. I don't doubt that there are people that can "run all over it" but I think they would be few and far between.

Comments: I disagree with the last sentence. There are several good 5.9 gear routes along that particular section (from Snake Buttress to Undeserved) of Endless Wall. Just off the top of my head, The Grafenberg Crack is decent, What a Jam is good, and Roy's Lament is also good. Two Step Arete is ok, not classic but definitely worth climbing if you dig that range (I do). Also, don't miss Black and Tan. It's .10a, but it's super good, worth doing, secure stances and small but bomber gear. I'm sure if ... more >>

Comments: Facing the correct direction coming out of the "pod" will make the thin move inconsequential. After that, you're rewarded with great pro of almost any size and much easier moves on good holds to the top. Crux is definitely down low on this one. Fantastic route, maybe the best at Beauty in the 5.10 range.

Comments: This is the second route with this "do it without a rope or it doesn't count" comment. Let's just drop trou and compare dicks and skip the nonsense. If you're a badass, then people will know, and there's no need for this type of personal hyperbole. There are a few badasses that live in the region, and they're all super humble guys and gals. You could learn a thing or two from them.

Comments: I was blown away by the quality of not only the rock and problems in this park, but the aesthetic quality, ambience and manicured nature of the park itself. Thanks for all your effort and hard work with regard to establishment, documentation and access, Aaron. This place is a gem.

Comments: As of April 2014, most if not all of those routes are equipped completely with hardware and have solid hangers and anchors. I looked at/climbed most of the ones you mention on that list. A friend and I personally tightened hangers on Belly of the Whale and Super Amazing Sea Monkeys. The state of the crag is, as far as I know, open and climbable. Please be kind to the area and if you see something that needs to be packed out, please do so. Thanks in advance, and have fun. It's a cool little... more >>
