Alternate 5.7 route to the left of the chimney, the so-called 'glory arete'. The chimney had a traffic jam this day, so we followed a yosar'ers advice. Beautiful pitch, fantastic exposure!

Location: CA : San Francisco Bay Area : Wine Country : Mount St. Helena : Table Rock : ... : Idle Hands (5.10c)
By: Johan When: Nov 18, 2015

Comments: The left of the two anchor bolts shared by Decorator Crab and Idle Hands is highly suspect and needs replacement. The hanger spins, but more importantly the boltĀ itself visibly flexes when one pulls down on it. I did not try to pull outward on it (perpendicular to the rock) or otherwise see if I could dislodge it. The other anchor bolt felt safe, so I rappelled by placing my faith in that bolt.

Thank you to whoever has equipped these climbs! If anybody who is experienced with bolting in this ... more >>

Comments: A terrific route with a lot more adventure feel than the other LL classics of similar quality. I'd call it sustained 5.8, with sting in the tail at the upper OW. My partner and I climbed it yesterday at the end of a long day, and felt a teensy bit better about ourselves when we later learned that the SuperTopo guide calls it 5.8, not 5.7 as listed here.

Comments: Warning, loose block on p6: I met somebody in the mountains yesterday who said they climbed Outer Space on Saturday, May 2, 2015. They said that on p6, the pitch that starts off library ledge, there's a massive loose flake that's ~5ft x 3ft and moved when touched and could go at any moment. They didn't trundle it because there were several parties on the route. They suspect it won't last long, and it would be seriously dangerous if it fell while climbers were on the route or near the base. I cli... more >>


Location: WA : Northwest Region : Darrington : Green Giant Buttress : Dreamer (5.9)
By: Johan When: Apr 27, 2015

Comments: We approached yesterday April 26 2015 and found the valley covered with patches of recent snow and much of the rock soaked from a wet week. There were waterfalls across the Green Giant Buttress, and slab-climbing was clearly a non-starter. We had sort of anticipated this (there were snow patched alongside the road in), but we were hoping to give the first few pitches a try. We had not accounted for how treacherous the final bit of the approach ("3rd class" slab) would be with all the wet rock. Y... more >>

Comments: Thanks Blake for uncovering and promoting this moderate pitch! Haven't yet tried it, but as a heads up: the "Description" properly says that one reaches this pitch by traversing right from Princely. The "Location" currently says "traversing left from Princely", which is wrong.

Comments: As of 12/7/14 the third bolt is currently missing its hanger. There is a small undercling right by that bolt that may take a C3 cam (I don't know for sure, I was TR'ing). This may or may not be why somebody stripped the bolt hanger. Would be nice to get a hanger back on it, as the rest of the route is on bolts, and it seems silly to require gear for that one placement. It's listed in the guidebook as a sport route.

Comments: Did this yesterday. I'm going to give the current conditions of the road, which will likely stay relevant through the next year of construction, and then some general comments.

The MF road is currently closed at the CCC trail trailhead, about 2.6 miles before the Taylor creek bridge. The closure meant that we biked in from the current closure point. The road is currently perfectly bikeable, but the planned roadwork over the coming weeks may interfere. We stashed bikes where the trail branches ... more >>

Comments: I was at Amazonia yesterday. I did not climb this route, but noticed the old log that used to lean against the cliff has now fallen down, in case that confuses anyone reading old descriptions of the wall.
