Comments: Love this! Thank you for sharing the story, Chris N! I think everyone has a story or two about an epic in that canyon! The place is magical but will play dirty.

Comments: No cell service in canyon after 9 Mile Hill. Some spotty service at or near the top of a few of the larger cliffs.

Comments: Hey ErinA. Sorry to hear this! That sucks. Was your tent stolen from the Nine Mile Hill area or up on Divide Road area?

Comments: The topout is definitely your typical lichen garden. We found starting with a right drop knee made this thing go.

Comments: Despite the longer approach, this is a great area that offers good routes of varying difficulty. I would recommend this area to those who typically go to Lower Mothers and the toe of Sunday Wall. Some great slab climbs.

Comments: Great route. Too bad it starts off of the slab as it gives you a little mental buzz. Ripped off the beginning underling. Does not make it any more difficult, just less secure to start. The crux is placing gear on lead. I found that a #3 at the top of the hand jam made me feel happy. Make sure you bring an extra #0.4 to put in a horizontal 3' left of the crack after turning the roof to keep the rope out of the hungry crack!

Comments: Huge rockfall from the storms this last weekend (9/27-28) near Sweet Sunday Serenade. Obliterated a green 13" tree at the base. The trail is slightly treacherous through this section.

Comments: For some historical information: during the war, families were given different flags depending on if their son(s) were alive or dead. You were given a Gold Star flag for those who died in Combat. In order to honor the fallen, a giant Gold Star flag was hung between the entrance to Goldstar Canyon. To do this, they suspended a large chunk of solid wire across the gap. One side being secured to this Tower and the other side to the cliff line and tower group on the West side of the canyon.

Comments: Steven, Upper Mighty Mouse/ Space Balls wall stays in the shade until mid to late afternoon. Quarry Wall is usually good until about 1pm depending where along the cliff you are. Mothers and Sunday Wall go into the shade in the later afternoon.

Comments: If you continue past the anchors as either a single long pitch or as a second pitch, there is a worthwhile, bolted face up great rock. A bolted anchor can be found at the next obvious ledge. Probably 5.10.

Comments: Another great Monument adventure. Pitches one and two have some great climbing! Three gets a little loose and bird poop filled. The last pitch is pretty wild and super fun.

We used the following: singles from #0.3(maybe 2) to #0.5; triples from #0.75- #2; double #3; singles from #5-#6. We brought a Valley Giant 9 and did not use any Bigbros, but Bigbros would work. You can get a six in pretty quickly after turning the roof.... more >>

Comments: Though the guidebook gives this a rating of 12+, both my partner and I think that it warrants a harder grade. The guidebook also states it has a single bolt anchor, but there are actually two. You be the judge! To take the death out of getting to the first bolt, climb Burnt Beautician and clip the first bolt on the rappel.

Comments: Climbing to the first of the good gear is quite heady. Upon close examination, two bolt holes were found of which the studs had been broken off of. At least one of these will be replaced next time up there. Until then, be careful!

Comments: Going straight up from a sit start from the two large pockets is a worthwhile variation. Stick a small sloper, and slap for a jug knob.
