Comments: Bolted crack: ahhhh. I'm sure if the rock weren't freezing cold this route would've been less numbing and more amazing. I'd say 10d/11a.

Comments: Super fun route once you get onto the face after 4th bolt or so. Really cool/exposed moves working into the dihedral. Don't let the 5.6 run out between the 2nd and 3rd bolt psyche you away from this gem.

Comments: Starts with an awkward Eldo-like dihedral with a Table Mesa roof at the crux. Interesting combination.

Comments: The initial move is a little balancy/pumpy; follow the arrow and start left with the rope on your left side to prevent entanglement.

Comments: Um. So the 4TH BOLT: the NUT POPPED OFF today after someone took a fall on top rope at the tricky start. Good thing it was not a lead fall. Couldn't find where the nut fell to. Will replace ASAP. until then;

only climb this route if you have a 3/8" nut and corresponding hanger for 4TH BOLT, as someone may have taken it as booty by now. If someone gets to it before I do, you may consider epoxy to keep the nut securely tightened; to prevent further incidents.

Comments: ...and when will that be...?

P.S. Bozo No no needs a more secure first bolt....

and to the reach the top of the Banana Tower you can easily jump or anchor the tree that's like 5 or 10 feet away.

Comments: Solid jugs to a technical top out. Seems like a sweet warmup for the surrounding climbs.

Comments: this route was my girlfriend's hardest redpoint to date. i lead it afterwards to clean and it definitely seemed a little awkward, slick and pumpy for an 8. we had two beginners with us that couldn't even pull the opening sequence. for this i'll give it a +. could even be a 9- at parts.

Comments: i wish the chimney were bigger, as it's the funnest part. good route for trad noobs. rope drag is cured with a high first placement. i used a camalot #2. There is however a nosey tree halfway up. and a slightly undesirable traverse to the chains. still worth it.

Comments: ugh. i was thinking about attempting that route on wed. maybe i'll tell my girlfriend to wear gloves. always make it a point to distinguish lead and top rope belaying, especially if it's someone you met in a (gag) gym.

Comments: sweet face climbing on good pockets. It's a breeze until the funky traverse at the third bolt. The crux is a big reach for the vert rail and pulling/smearing to the ledge above it for the fifth clip. the crux move aside, i found this to be a much easier red-point than it's neighbor primal magic.

Comments: the crux move on juggernaut is harder than any move on primal magic...however, pm has bigger initial moves and is slightly more sustained. interesting/misleading crux.

Chossy looking blocks of what looks like clay to the left of the lie-back and crux are bad foot holds! a few of them came off and hit my belayer from 40 ft. no bueno.

Comments: First bolt is hard to clip, as it spins very loosely. Could be suspect to failure in a f2 fall, but I could hang on it pretty safely. Run out at the crux but you can head right towards the crack for easier climbing.

Comments: it's a sandbag. sweet sequence options. small holds. pumpy. sustained, ten plus climbing. totally worth pulling.

Comments: area is definitely not grid-bolted. this route seems stiff at the shield, but totally doable and certainly not contrived. I'd say it's at least 5.8 because of the start and the thin crux. good route. i have no idea what everyone is arguing about.

Comments: climbs like 10b-ish. It's a great lap route, more sustained than witch-hunt with no obvious crux. there are great edges on either side of the chains. you just have to feel them out. (way easier than dog pile in that the holds are all pretty much huge.)

Comments: Neat line. Awkward (but fun) facey start, thin bulging crux, and a cool gaston at the overhang.

Comments: My personal favorite nine in this area. good protection, varied holds, balancy crux moves, challenging route finding, this gets an A+.

Comments: Wow. Never been so sketched out on a 10a corner pull. This route humbles me.

Comments: Sick climb. Good finger crack route for trad-impaired. Thanks for the bolts, I swear I'll buy some more pro next pay check.

Comments: It is very tempting to head right at the top, however, original line is the 10+ "slab" to the left of the giant flake. Crux is the traverse from 10a face (clips 1-3) to a misleading system of slopers (clips 4-6). Sweet lead.
