Comments: Thought this was a really fun route. First couple moves have some slick feet and I wouldn't have hated having a stick clip for it, but it's doable. If you blow it, you at least have some scrubby bushes to land in :) I noticed a faint pink X on what appears to be a really good handhold around what I think was the 4th bolt or so. I knocked on it and it seemed solid, but it certainly doesn't look solid. If it comes off, your belayer better... more >>

Comments: Fun route, 6 bolts with a sporty finish. It shares the start with "Behind the Fridge," 5.10c. Left after the split is 5.10c, right is the 5.9.

Comments: I am not sure if I read this route wrong or what, but I can't find a way that this thing is 5.9. It felt a solid grade harder to me, and the bolting is not great. The 5.10s in the area all felt cruiser compared to the start of this thing. Not really worth the effort to climb it IMO when there are so many other better routes nearby.

Comments: There is a nice little hornet/wasp nest near the last bolt as of last weekend. Several were hanging out near the opening of the pocket and I could see a nest inside. Just be aware since it looks like a sweet hold when you are coming up on it.

Comments: The comment about the belay stance seems odd since everyone in our party commented how nice it was. Fun route, nothing too hard just felt like sustained 5.9 climbing.

Comments: Great cruiser route. Well bolted, to the point I climbed past the last bolt without noticing. 70m was plenty long.

Comments: Seems to have cleaned up some since the last comment. We didn't pull anything off. But like the other routes in the area it its still a little dirty. Fun route though.

Comments: It looked chossier than it climbed. I didn't notice anything sizable that was loose. Although it all LOOKS like it should pull right out, it all stayed in place. Bottom section is a bit sandy but it cleans up as you climb higher. Fun climb!

Comments: Not sure about the choss comments. I didn't notice much at all. If you get much out of the bolt line I could see it possibly getting a bit chossy. Its a bit mossy down low but other than that it was a super fun route. Nice and airy feeling for the last few bolts. Not sustained really, but we really enjoyed the route. And calling this a 5.9 is just a sandbag comment. The moves to get around the roof/bulge are solid 10b for Maple.

Comments: Nice trail all the way to Ganja wall now from the lower crags TH if you don't want to take the hand line down.
