Comments: ok, here goes. i finally made it back to the crystalvision yesterday. its been 12 years since we put it up. the crux "spicy" pitch was my friend paul emrick's lead, as was the crystal slab and i must say that we discussed a bolt on the spicy pitch many times (personally i think he did a great job on the slab as its a super fun pitch that's well protected). i placed the bolt on the 5.8 slab 2nd pitch after having led it a couple of times w/out and decided it would just be a better climb with... more >>

Comments: Never climbed in the area. Wondering if anyone can recommend some crags and camping. I will be with my kids, 5&8 yrs. burgeoning climbers who really like a short approach! Single pitch would be best. Any advice?

Comments: Did JHaskell's variation to the 5.9 face traverse pitch yesterday. Definitely less sketchy, but certainly takes longer. Traverse left until you see a corner and head up. The pitch is actually pretty fun, hands in a corner. Top out the pedestal and then downclimb about 30 ft (not 10) down and right to a pedestal and slip around the corner. This part is kind of a pain in the ass and eats time. However if you've got it and aren't psyched on the original 5.9 option, check it out.
