Comments: Belay off cams and nuts. Climb to the top and descend by walking down the gully (or rap from the top anchors of you have two ropes).

Comments: There is no camping at Wagon Caves. You can camp at Santa Lucia Memorial Park, approximately 5 miles down the road.

Comments: I have always thought this was harder than 5.9 as well. I would agree with 5.9 plus....specifically, plus one.

Comments: Ken,
I climbed this with you in March 2004, and indeed, I remember you mentioning that your wife was in the hospital either recovering from, or preparing to give birth to your daughter! Can't remember the details, but the route was brand new.

Comments: I was pretty irritated when somebody added bolts to Harlots Slot, and renamed it. In my opinion, when somebody adds bolts to an existing TR, they are retrobolting an existing climb...not doing a first ascent. Many climbers feel that a TR is fair game for bolting and renaming, I do not. I think retrobolting TRs is unacceptable and a little pathetic, but not everyone agrees. mountainproject.com/v/californ...

Comments: California Mountain Kingsnake

Edit:
an interesting note:

Nonvenomous
Considered harmless to humans. (There are no venomous snakes in California that can be mistaken for this snake, but the similar-looking Arizona Coral Snake, found in Arizona, is venomous and dangerous.)

Comments: If you are unwilling to TR or lead the route, you could fix a temporary line from above to allow you to climb to the end of the crack (and beyond), clipping preplaced knots. You could even lower from the end of the crack if you don't want to finish the climb.

This would be better than retrobolting a route that has obviously seen at least one free ascent.

Comments: These bolts have been added to either McTavish (RH variation), Hangin' Round, or Chips Block. Can't really tell from the photo, but they all share the dihedral.

It is certainly on an established routes and interrupts climbing in the middle of a pitch where perfect natural pro exists. It also appears someone has scrubbed the moss off the rock where the rope is hanging.

Comments: You're right Jeff. When most of these routes were put up there was no such thing as trad (or sport). I think you are pointing out that this is a bolted route with limited opportunities for pro. True, but I would not consider it a sport climb.

Comments: I can comment on that pitch since I just did it last weekend.

The answer is FAR. I would say roughly 35 feet apart. The harder sections are in the vicinity of the bolts (5.8 moves within 0-15 feet of bolts), but there is real climbing on the whole pitch. The bulk of the climbing is probably 5.6-5.7. Everything is there, you just have to be calm and patient and look around...the easiest path is quite circuitous. As Brad says, the runouts aren't horrendous, but it takes focus and I definitely... more >>

Comments: I agree, keep the brush at home. Sandstone and brush don't mix, and this one will always be a sand mine.

I rapped off that lone, questionable bolt about 17 years ago. It scared the sh#t out of me then, and I don't even want to imagine what it looks like now...

Comments: I have climbed here lots, and never noticed anything much beyond a bunch of good climbs and fun adventures.

Steve Edwards, could you be a little more specific with your comments? You have said some things that I suspect may result in the area getting "fixed", which in the past has entailed moving bolts, cutting vegetation, relocation of anchors, addition of toprope anchors, and generally making the area toprope ready and safe for the children. Specifically, you said the area could be retro'd.... more >>
