Comments: Definitely wasn't trying to complain, I just wanted to clear things up with a photo and my perspective on it. I would've absolutely gone back up and used some epoxy on it myself, but I was on a 3-day trip from Colorado and didn't see any of these 'warnings' until I got down off the climb to put my post up. I'm not quite sure what constitutes as loose, but I've never had an anchor wiggle on me like that. But then again this was my first time climbing in AZ and it's definitely clear the the rock a... more >>

Comments: Unfortunately I was on a 3-day trip down from Colorado and didn't see any of the posts about this until I got down and logged on to warn others... I didn't have anything with me to fix them and now am back in Colorado.

Comments: I don't know if this is the same issue as others have said (as some of you guys said nothing is wrong), but I definitely don't feel safe rapping off this guy. The right anchor is obviously wiggling its way out and with not much effort it moves significantly.

Anchors on top of pitch two. You can see the right anchor is starting to come out and it does wiggle with not much effort. Scary to rap off!

Comments: Hahaha yeah someone was probably here before me... I figured I would document, name, and add it to the database for others to enjoy. Hope you had a good time there. You should add the routes you did so people can come enjoy them.

Comments: Nah watched them climb the final pitch from the summit at about 2am, then ran ahead/down the cables to get this photo. But agreed, very nice up there!

Comments: Shoes would definitely be better. The rock is super sharp, but if you have calloused feet then I suppose it'd be fine. The pain is the factor, not friction.

Sent it on my second day of working it. Great problem and it felt right at V5 for me. Got a couple angles of video and threw them together here. The first and last clips are of Breashears' Crack.

Comments: I was climbing on a boulder probably 50 yards NW of the main circular parking area and saw a piece of paper on the ground that said "Split Face Boulders". Does anyone know the names or difficulties of the routes on these boulders?
Also, there is a small boulder about 50 yards further on the road past "Quarter Inch Master Area". No such sign existed by this boulder, but there were two fun little crack routes on it but no chalk marks. Are there names for this rock and these routes?
