Comments: 5.10 climbing to a series of very sequential crimps and friction moves through the last 3 bolts. The bolts are positioned perfectly and falls are clean. Anchors are solid.

Comments: The "fourth" bolt looks like it is out of line, and off to the left of this route. It is probably the first bolt on "jumping to conclusions" as it breaks left. However, if you skip this bolt, it is a long run-out to the next one (sock puppet says to clip the 'fourth' bolt at your hip and I assume he means this one.) It looks like you could deck if you came off trying to clip it. I'd say, clip the slightly out of line bolt with a longer draw to make it a little safer.

Comments: This climb is surprisingly fun. The opening moves are tricky and the first bolt is pretty low. A stick clip to the second bolt might be a good idea unless you're confident at the grade. There are a couple of reachy moves, and an especially high left hand off a juggy side pull before the last bolt, that might make this hard for shorter folks.

Comments: I liked this route because it follows a line of really interesting crystalized rock that winds up the corner.

Comments: Perin's description of this climb is totally perfect, even down to the fossil! This climb is worth it just to go see that thing.

Comments: The blank section in the middle is hard. Good footwork helps, but you need nerves of steel to pull on that chalked up slopey pocket.

Comments: This is a pretty fun climb. easier than some of the other 10b's in this area. The feet down low are a little sparse, but they get a lot better as you go up. Seems easier if you stem off the left wall.

Comments: This is really well protected, and the crux section can be stick clipped from the ground. The crux is very perplexing. It is powerful and exacting; strenuous side-pulling on not-so-good crimps. Find your feet, stand up and reach really high for the crimp over the right side of the bulge. If you stay on woo hoo! This is really just a 4 move, v5-v6 boulder problem, bookended by some easier climbing.

Comments: This is tougher than second coming--more technical and sustained. There are some really cool sequences through the crux area. The big ledges are not as good as you'd like, many of the holds that look all chalked up are slopey and I agree there aren't many good rests. The finish on crimps is definitely exciting after pumping out on the steep section below.

Comments: I feel like this is more consistent and a little more sustained than second coming. The slopey holds require you to choose carefully and hang low or you can run out of gas. There are a couple of decent rests. One is the big ledge that is shared with second coming, the second is just before the steep part and the third is just past the last bolt, if you go way right on the chalked up ledge. pull the bulge at the end of the steep part on a good right-hand side pull, go out left to the jugs and yo... more >>

Comments: This route is not a good top-rope, unless you extend the anchor over the lip, and then you kind of miss the coolness of pulling over the top. Top roping off draws (clearly people do this) will wear out your rope. The top part is well protected though, and a fall is clean, so it is really a great lead.

Comments: Say what you want about this climb, but it is kind of the test-piece for the area. I love the variety -- tricky sequences down low. A nice rest spot in the middle. Big holds on the overhanging prow at the top. It is a really enjoyable climb.

Comments: The route has been rebolted (along with numerous others). For a time, the old gym-style clips were gone. I put some new ones up. This is a fun climb to do laps on.

Comments: The start is hard. The first bolt is difficult to clip -- we couldn't find a great way to do it. If you aren't a solid 5.10 leader you might want to stick-clip the first bolt. The climb is pretty fun though, demanding good foot work on small features. It eases up substantially after the 2nd bolt.

Comments: Breathtaking. In my opinion, this climb is more about mental stamina than physical stamina. There are plenty of places to rest, but when you are sitting in "the pod," 80 feet off the deck and you still have 10 more clips to go, and you can't see the chains, you really find out where your head is.

Comments: The information on how to get to this spot is a little vague. Here is the definitive:

The Taylor Creek Trailhead is NOT the way to go. There is a parking spot 1.1 miles PAST the taylor creek trail head on the right side of the road, just before the hairpin turn. That is where you park, then cross the road and follow the trail up the canyon.

Below is the entrance to the trail.

Comments: Seems like this is pretty easy if you stem off the wall behind you. Is that considered "off route?"

Also, I didn't find the anchors. I topped out and found two rappel bolts about 10 feet back from the ledge.

Did I miss something? This is the route just to the left of Lacy Swiss right?

Comments: If you start this over in the cave area (by shotgun baptism) it is really cool to pull up through those sculpted holds and then balancy to move back onto the face. A really fun variation.

Comments: This is a really fun climb and the start has a number of variations. If your short, you'll need a boost to get to the start holds.

Comments: This is a pretty cool climb. The overhanging section is awesome, then there are some interesting technical moves on the face above. Some of the holds feel really fragile though, and there is a LOT of sand which falls in your face when you grab the holds. (hence the two stars instead of thee).

Comments: There are some decent holds on the face to the right of the crack down low that seem to be still "on route." As you get higher, it is better to drift left onto the slabby face.
