Comments: Do you know any of the FA history by chance? Those rings must predate 1985. Just always wondered.

Comments: This thing is a real treat though still a little rough around the edges lichen wise. All the crucial spots are clean. We have partially cleaned routes to either side of CGA, so make sure you are on the right line, cause the others would try to kill you in a heartbeat. No, seriously, it would be dangerous to be off route. The line should be obvious. Though the season on this north facing wall is about to end in a few weeks or so....

Big thanks to Wade and Seth for putting in the man hours to bri... more >>

Comments: This was always on my list, but I guess a little too far down. I had wanted to at least do the right hand variation finish to Proud Father, which is now the top of Bootlegger. I'm assuming the link up works? I'm sure it would bump up the overall quality of Proud Father to exit right.

Good work you guys. The middle section looked pretty gnarly.

Comments: Maybe you should change the name to Life Saver.... Good work you guys. I rapped this line years ago, and thought it looked pretty good. Looking forward to checking it out one of these days.

Comments: If you are up there out of season, chances are you won't enjoy anything. This is not a good crag to be at unless the temps are right. See the Higher Solitude page for more info...

Comments: The classic "deep breath out, move two inches, inhale and repeat". At one point I believe I was worming through horizontally.

Comments: As a younger climber always on the lookout for beautiful new lines, my day dreams were once haunted with visions of perfect crack lines winding their way skyward, only to end into sweeping headwalls that were riddled with perfect jugs and deep pockets. These imaginary lines were a harmonious union between two styles of climbing that I loved equally. The down and dirty heart kicking nature of true, hard gear climbing, and the steep, long moves between great holds that we all consider classic spor... more >>

Comments: Finding a diamond in the rough is always exciting, but knowing the line is getting some love and getting people psyched is even better. Well done Blake. It may be the second ascent unless someone chimes in here somewhere...somehow.

Comments: I've changed the names of several recently added problems from "unknown" to simple numbers. If anyone out there knows more about these lines, and especially the proper names, please let us know in the comments of those lines. As always, historical info is much appreciated.

Comments: Hey Dean, Sterling Canyon runs into Oak Creek right at the switchbacks, just above the hatchery. It was a densely chocked canyon, more of a steep ravine really. Hiked it down from the rim once, and only once. I know why they had a hell of time fighting the fire in this area....

Comments: This route deserves a more fitting description. It does a disservice to us all, when people describe routes as top rope problems when they have been lead, and a long time ago at that.

Comments: I could be way out of the loop, but I think you are describing DRL Drive, given V7 back in the day. Unless you are describing the line just right which takes on the bulge. A significant step up in difficulty, and I don't know the given name.

The "DRLs" were a strong crew of motivated climbers back in the late nineties/early 2000 with a penchant for partying, and hard climbing. and I believe DRL Drive is both a street(?) and an older underground movie showcasing the exploits of the group.

Comments: I moved bolt #5 today while equipping the Direct line. It makes for a nicer sequence, and the new bolt is right in your face. A big improvement overall.

Comments: On May 20th, the Slide Fire was started near Slide Rock State Park in Oak Creek Canyon. The fire moved quickly north up Oak Creek Canyon ravaging the western slopes and walls. To date the fire is still burning, and the burn area is already around 11,000 acres.

It is unclear what areas were directly affected by fire at this time, but the Doctor's Office, and some West Fork routes such as Into The Wild may have seen direct contact. It's safe to say, however, that with the inevitable floods and m... more >>
