Comments: First pitch is a lot of fun, sustained climbing at the 5.10 level. Don't bother with the second pitch, I'm not even sure why it exists.

Comments: Fun route, really thin and slabby, but I agree with Bill, if you use the right-facing ledge the grade drops significantly.

Comments: This was my first lead. And for that, it was good, because the climbing is pretty easy all the way. If you're an experienced leader, not worth it, but if you're bringing a new leader, maybe take them here. Overall an ok climb, nothing spectacular.

Comments: Best route at the crag I'd say. Wouldn't recommend coming to Watermark just for this one, but if you're around there go ahead and do it, it's fun.

Comments: This route is pretty cool IMHO. I'm surprised to see it on here as 10a though, given that the BoCan guidebook by D'antonio calls it 9+, and I'd agree with that. I started up the crack and thought it was fun. Definitely a little tricky in spots, but I wouldn't say the climbing is 10a. Kind of creepy on lead (especially because from the 5th or so bolt, you can't see the next bolt), but if you trust your technique, you should be solid. Creepiest part is coming out onto the face near the anchors, bu... more >>

Comments: Not a bad route. Did it while I was waiting for a party to get off of Animation to the left. First moves are the crux. To protect yourself a tad, you can climb up on to the big ass rock right at the base and clip the first bolt, then downclimb and start up left. After maybe the 3rd bolt or so, it's a jug haul. Fun, but a little scary on a really windy day... even though the holds are all super positive, the bolts are faaaar apart... if by some chance you take a fall, it's gonna be a big one.

Comments: Such a fun route! Definitely one of the better 8s I've done. Fun moves, good to put a beginner on top rope I would think (but really fun to lead). If you are leading it, it's hard to reach the 5th (?) bolt from the big ledge.... I'm 5'8", and I had to do a little move to reach the bolt. All in all, great route! Do it if you're in the area!

Comments: Did the "Buried Alive" variation this afternoon. So awesome, highly recommended! The first pitch is a fun 5.8 with some cool moves (I'm a newer leader so if you're really experienced maybe not as fun). The second pitch is pretty short but has some neat exposure. The real fun is doing the last pitch of "Stayin' Alive", 5.10a. Just awesome... like I said I'm a newer leader, so this felt pretty exhilarating for me. Regardless, I think this route is well worth doing. Great views of Boulder Falls (ha... more >>
