Comments: Pretty fun! We had TR'd this line off other anchors before. It was cool to see that it got bolted. I thought the last 12 ft of the route seemed significantly more difficult than the rest. I wouldn't be surprised if you see a lot of climbers bailing right to the MacCavity anchors.

Comments: Great climb. The first pitch is mostly just to set you up for the goods and feels more like a scramble, but definitely think about your partner on the short OW spot. The dihedral can be climbed more like a stemming chimney than a crack, but the crack definitely comes into play. Lots of good rests and opportunities to bump gear up if that's your style. Great position once you get up higher. We used a pretty light rack through #3 Camalot and were fine. Second rappel required a short downclim... more >>

Comments: The main jug over the roof (halfway up) flexes really bad still if you weight it and has a visible hairline crack that goes 3/4 of the way through it. Also I agree with others about the anchor placement. The anchors are on the far end of a block that is about the size of a Buick and is cantilevering over an edge. I'm not a geologist or engineer of any sort, but I have rapped off of anchors and felt better about it than when I was rapping off of these ones. The routes that go up there are pretty ... more >>

Comments: I didnt have a stick clip but was able to protect the first few moves with a smaller cam, reachable from the ground. also there is a makeshift ladder nearby that you could probably use to get through the start. outrageously awkward route that should definitely be climbed!

Comments: If you opt to camp out behind Miguels and are over the age of 28 you'll probably want to distance yourself from the restaurant as much as possible. theres a pretty heavy party scene that went on until about 4 am on a tuesday when I visited. None of the staff will do anything to silence people. I'd recommend staying at another campsite if youre the kind of person that just wants to get up and go climbing the next morning. But if you came to Kentucky to get trashed behind a pizza place in the midd... more >>

Comments: Someone bolted a route recently in between Holiday Road and Beasto. It's pretty filthy still and has at least 3 big loose blocks on it. Take EXTREME caution if you choose to climb this route.

Comments: Cool spot with a super easy approach and some decent routes. The few times that I've been, there were a lot of people there! The upper right area still has a lot of loose, toaster-sized rocks just waiting to get kicked down into the crowds below. Be careful.

Comments: Try very hard not to fall while gaining the anchors. It's probably only 5.6 thorough this last 20ft but would generate a pretty long fall. The rest of the route is fairly sustained and drifts sideways in a couple of cool spots.

Comments: DO IT! Awesome warmup. Great for a 5.9 leader. Tons of bolts. Plenty of rests along the way. My 70m ends up with a foot or 2 extra after rope stretch is gone. Every 60m I've ever used on it gets right around maxed out to the low anchors.

Comments: I think it's more like balance, JUG, JUG, mantle, balance, balance, mantle, balance, and anchors. A great route for getting a bunch of different muscle groups going.

Comments: Seems pretty clean now under the roof. Really fun movements on ridiculously good jugs through the roof traverse section.

Comments: I think we did the first pitch of this route today, not knowing what it was. My partner led and set up an anchor with some gear. There were not anchors on the first big ledge at 55' for this one, but there were lots of places for gear. It's pretty easy to rap down off of the anchors for Coleman Direct if you chose to just do the first pitch. We thought it felt around 5.6 and was pretty fun.

Comments: Fun little spot. 2 or 3 stars for the grade/area. The crack doesn't start to get super cool until the last few moves. Easy to protect wherever you decide that you want protection along the way. This would be a good first lead for the aspiring trad leader as long as you have a few larger pieces.

Comments: The first route we did at Staunton. This route is SO good! I placed a medium-sized nut in a slot 10ft off the deck on the way up to the first bolt to avoid a possible broken ankle. A stick clip would definitely feel better. The route has such a fun variety of holds and stays pretty sustained for the most part. Great movements and humbling bolt placements on this beautiful climb. CLIMB THIS ROUTE!

Comments: We did the first pitch of this route today, not knowing what it was. My partner led and set up an anchor with some gear. There didn't seem to be any anchor bolts for this one. There is a huge, relaxed ledge at the top, and it's pretty easy to rap down off of the anchors for Coleman Direct if you chose to just do the first pitch. We thought it felt around 5.6 or 7 and was pretty fun.

Comments: Super fun route. Completely different than the rest of the Catslab lineup. The scare factor is definitely in effect. Still a little dirty in spots. 2 or 3 loose rocks along the way, but the holds are huge and solid when you need them to be. This route is probably 10a or b if you are on the taller side, but I could see it being 10d for someone short. Lots of reaching opportunities. I thought that going left/straight at the top felt much more comfortable than the possibly easier climbing to the fa... more >>

Comments: The Canal Zone could always use more routes as it's often a circus in the summer, even on weekdays. That being said, this is not a bad route. I thought that most of it was 5.8ish except 1 or 2 moves toward the top, getting to that big chalked up V-shaped hold. Going off to the left through the bush is also possibly an option but may or may not be easier and just seemed dirty to me. Cool addition overall! Thanks, bolters!

Comments: As of May 2013, there is a large bird's nest just over the roof with shit all over some useful holds. It was unoccupied today, and the route was still climbable.

Comments: Did this route (kind of) for the first time today. We started on the Great Zot. Awesome. Linked p1 and p2 to the eyebolts which only left about 4ft of extra rope out of our 70m. P3 was so-so. After the 4th pitch traverse/crack thing (which was pretty incredible), we somehow started the 5th much too far to the left and accidentally got on a different arete (about 40ft left of Rebuffat's) with some loose rocks. The arete was spectacularly scary, sharp, and runout but proved to be one of the cooles... more >>
