Comments: Once you brush the holds and figure out the sequence below the last bolt, it climbs well and is probably around 12a, maybe a touch harder, but the route is so short that you carry no pump for the techy crux sequence.

Comments: This route climbs quite well. The movement and stone is quite good for this wall.

Comments: I would not recommend going up to this crag unless you like 30 foot routes on really friable dirty limestone. If this sounds good to you, you can see it up on the hillside to the right just after the split. It doesn't look like that could possibly be a crag, but that's it. Bushwhack up a steep loose scree slope for about 150 yards, likely passing a few rattlesnakes and you're there. There is no trail. Gets sun after 2:30 PM in the... more >>

Comments: We went here on 9/18/16. The wall was literally covered in 1000's of wasps and bees. It wasn't climbable. Also, the trail getting up there is really faint these days and doesn't look like many folks have been hitting this great crag much...perhaps because of the bees! Maybe after a few frosts the bees will die down. If you do go, it gets sun until about 3PM in the fall.

Comments: This route will probably become pretty popular over time once people realize that it's there and it cleans up some more. This could be a nice warm up for some of the harder routes around once you have the crux dialed. A long draw on the 2nd to last bolt greatly helps to reduce drag as you pull on to the final short head wall.

Comments: Fun route! No move is super hard, but it's hard to do all of the moves together. Still cleaning up as of 9/16. There's a cobble left of the last bolt that's about to rip. It's fully chalked up and used to be a welcome jug for a shake. You can easily avoid it, but it just makes for a little bigger move and a poorer shake spot.

Comments: A good approach as of 2014-2016: Park at the pull out after that for the Hell Area. Head down to the river and go up stream until you find a series of down trees and log debris piles in the river. Find your way across these logs. Nothing sketchy and there are several options depending on the water level. At the other side of the river, head right and look for the campfire ring. Do not follow the faint mistake trail that goes directly up the scree from the river crossing. The well estab... more >>

Comments: I thought this route climbed really nicely. Brad's comments are spot on. This route deserves a bit more traffic, and will clean up nicely. All the key holds are solid, but you have to be careful with the flags to the left as there's a fair amount of small choss waiting to be knocked loose.

Comments: The difficulty probably depends on how much stemming you decide to do. I tried to not stem at all, but chickened out in one spot. The rock on the face is quite good, but dirty. The rock quality on the wall that you stem on is less than perfect.

Comments: Rock quality on this one is pretty good (by AF standards). Everything you need is solid, just watch out if you get a bit sloppy on the footwork. Like most routes here, with enough traffic, it will be super clean. As of 8/16, looks like someone has a project going for the extension. Looks sick!

Comments: There are 2 cruxes. One above the 3rd bolt, and one above the last. The first is very thin as you pull on to the slab and a soft catch is needed if you blow it so you don't hit the slab below the bulge. The top crux has excellent rock and requires a calm head as you realize that you are on your feet the whole time. A very unique route!

Comments: A really nice climb! Felt crazy hard at first, but quickly climbs down once you figure out the body positions to use the holds. The finish is great!

Comments: As of 7/16, this route has cleaned up quite nicely. We encountered nothing loose, although the bottom holds were still a bit sandy here and there. This makes a nice long warm up with practically no approach if you are camped along the road.

Comments: I lost my Maple Canyon guidebook on the right fork trail on the afternoon of Saturday, 7/16. It apparently had fallen out of my pack on the way down the trail and I didn't realize it until the next morning at camp. Friends had spotted it on the way down after me, but didn't realize it was mine. It was gone when I went back to look for it in the morning,

It is pretty easy to ID. Its full of markups inside from me and is held together with a duct tape sp... more >>

Comments: Start on bolt line to the right of the start of Hybrid and Mad Choss Disease. Links into Hybrid at the rail, finishes on Hybrid. Originally rated 13a, I agree with that.

Comments: For clarity, same start as Mad Choss and Hybrid. Climb Hybrid to the 3rd bolt, follow Hybrid, but clip the left bolt before climbing the the rail of Hybrid. At the rail, traverse back left to reach the line of bolts that heads into the black water groove just to the right of Mad Choss Disease.

Comments: per the original topo, this line is called "Random RX (RX)" and is listed at 13c. As of 6/16, it still goes. Starts to the right of Chostakovitch and climbs its own discrete line to the anchors above the cave. This is the second longest route at the Choss Cave excluding link ups.

Comments: Per the original topo for the cave, this route is in fact The Blight. It was rated at 13b/c. The route is in poor shape at the present.

Comments: Update: Found the original topo for the cave. This line is in fact Cow Belly, however the original rating was 12d/13a. I would tend to agree.

Comments: This is the longest route in the cave that is not a link up. Mostly very good holds. Climbs more like a Compound route at Maple Canyon than a Choss Cave route. Climb up to the low horizontal break, then past some glued pockets. The crux is between bolts 4 and 5 linking side pulls and undercling flakes. After that, bomber jugs and fun climbing to the finish to its own anchor about 10 feet above the anchors for RX. Very fun moves, although it is currently very dirty. I don'@SEMICO... more >>

Comments: I've come here for a few years, and was always told that this route was a turd. Its actually not a bad warm up for the fingers and the rock is very clean. Worth getting on if you are looking for a more gradual warm up.
