Comments: I will work on creating a way to separate the monument into maybe three section based on location. Confusion is partly how the monument works on you though. Hah.

Comments: Although the route is long, there are many rests. I thought that this was more of a 5.11 to 5.11+. Thanks to whoever updated the anchors semi-recently. Anyone know any info about the thing crack with a bolt at the beginning that is to the left of this climb?

Comments: Just did this again after a few years, and the key for me was the thigh jam before the end splitter section.

Comments: You probably saw the bolt/sling that is 30 feet past the existing anchor. I had heard that it originally went to there, but not to the top, but they decided to lower anchors to where the good rock ends.

Comments: The new route, Doppelganger, offers a save direct rap for any of the lines on the Mother's Buttresses. To find the raps, you have to go 60 feet up canyon from the top of Questions and Answers. At a prow, there is a large dead pinyon pine. The anchors are slightly lower than the lip. A 70m rope will work for the first rap, but you need double ropes for the final two.

Comments: There is a slightly harder variation to the first pitch. Climb original line for 20 feet than step right on the sloping ledge and climb up the slightly broken rock to a bolt and ledge. Then Climb the right dihedral and come up on the right side of the belay ledge.

Comments: Rap station has been replaced thanks to the ASCA and WCCC. You can now rap straight down to the top of " The Ol' Hucklebuck" and then rap to the ground.

Comments: Maybe there could be a bit more for the Approach description. Is this before you reach any of the first climbs, and after the superfund dump?

Comments: If you continue up the steep crack where it narrows to where you can chimney, there is a ledge with two sets of anchors, one in front of you (old angles) and the one behind you is a new anchor.

Comments: The route to the left is not a 5.7, in fact it is the start to two 5.12 climbs. The slings are just bail points. I would recommend that if you want to do the beginning section of these 5.12 routes, to just climb to the first pitch of Titus Groan and top rope it. A rats nest of webbing around a chock stone a quarter the way up an existing route is not justification for putting in anchors.

Comments: Rap bolts have been replaced. Look over the edge on the side closest to buttress behind the pinnacle to see two rap hangers above the ledge you step down to. Careful of loose rock when you pull the rope.... Courtesy of the ASCA.

Comments: The WCCC has been investigating this and has found that as far as the authorities, park and local, the trail is not to be used as an access point. Though originally all drainage coming from the monument were legal access points that were supposed to be upheld in perpetuity, the reality is that all the new subdivisions and building up against The Monument has created a land divisions that do not include these access points, so legally the landowners are told they have some sort of right to the la... more >>
