Comments: This is the second pitch of Gunklandia, not the Direct Variation.

Comments: It's pretty obvious, but: the first pitch is a full 30m and the hardest moves are off the ground, so take care of the follower appropriately.

Comments: Really high quality. I found the leftward moves under the overhang to be fairly difficult; it looked like you could possibly make face/slab moves about 10' left of where I was at that point.

The rap is almost a full 30m, so make sure you're at the middle of your rope.

Comments: Surprisingly high-quality climbing!

Comments: ... that's because you're doing it way too high. Move right with your hands where your feet are in this picture, and it's trivial.

Comments: No anchor on the tree as of Memorial Day 2016.

There is better gear than you might see from the ground, in the horizontals.

Comments: Pro is good but not great; can be tricky to get in the higher traverse. Watch out for loose stuff.

Comments: Routes are all pretty close to full 30m here -- you may want to carry extras in the finger/hand cam sizes.

Comments: Eyesore is in the list of routes to the left on this page -- its entry is here. If you mean 'why isn't it listed as a 'classic climbing' route?', the answer is that the 'classic climbing' list is chosen not by humans but by an algorithm of MP software, according to stars and number of ratings. Go add a star, if you adore it!

Comments: Jackie is actually substantially further left than what's drawn here, until the first rooflet.

Comments: Classic is almost right here. Neither this pic nor the other topo-drawn pic for Jackie (on its page) is correct!

Comments: Hi Nick, nice to see you here. Those routes are not listed here simply because no one has added entries for them yet. When someone does create entries for them (hint!, hint!), they'll be voted on by others, and automatically added to the favorites and classics lists. Thanks for the photos you added today!

Comments: If the intermediate anchor were better, I'd list the route as 5.6 and just describe the first pitch -- it deserves it. The second pitch, not so much.

Comments: This route horrified my husband, who was onsighting 5.10 at the time. I was also horrified on TR. Not worth it, at all.
