Comments: Right side in the whole way. Four large cams will do it. 2-5s 2-6s. Super fun.

Comments: A #5 can be placed from standing on top of a pointed block just before the difficulties. Then grunt up toward the horizontal on the left that will take gear since the crack is now too big for a # 6. This felt no harder than Handjacker.

Comments: Ok--quicklinks--cool. Powerpoint--check. Cut sling with slippy knots? Who ordered that?

Comments: Better--but not great. Quicklinks - Yes. How about a power point, so if one side fails the thing will still hold?

Comments: I have seen those anchors as well. Looks like two sets. Sun bleached anchors. Any word? Wanna check it out?

Comments: Tombo,

This route has certainly changed in that spot. Having been on the route in 2008 and 2009 I have noticed changes in the crux. The ledge prior to the crux initially had a false belay, bolts directly down into the ledge. The following year, those bolts were gone, and my partner swears the ledge is further away now from the first placement. He performed the first move without hooking and was able to place the Metolius Orange while standing on the ledge. When I was the up there the follo... more >>

Comments: Better come to a consensus on these bolts and future bolts. Recently up there, and the hangers are gone, with the bolts still present. Soon, with these antics, the bolt threads will be damaged, leaving an unusable bolt, or a spinning hanger. Also not having a hanger leaves the rock surrounding the bolt more prone to erosion in this softer rock. Why not form a group to decide where bolts are appropriate, and where not. Where can anchors safely be made, and where a bolt could be justified. A... more >>

Comments: The nonsense continues. Out there yesterday to find several of the live trees at the campground chopped down, leaving 4ft high stumps all around. I imagine who ever did this was too lazy to gather some of the hundreds of dead trees/logs scattered throughout the nearby area due to the fire. There was also pieces of furniture broken up, also being used in fire pits. Does any one know when another clean up day is? With out some more love, a few will spoil it for all.

Comments: Jeff,

They did not bolt the roof, but a set to climber's right, and another set to the left, in addition to the bolts that were already there. I am surprised the roof was not bolted, since that also seems to be the more timely anchor to build. I agree, the more traffic an area sees, the more likely we are to have people that will abuse it. Two recent fire rings were also evident. An area like this, while not destination, should have its tradition and ethics be respected. I am not one to cho... more >>
