Comments: The temps that are currently displayed on this page appear unrealistically low. The forecast I use, the NWS point forecast, shows highs 10 to 20 degrees warmer each day. Use the following link for the point forecast:

Comments: Ben, that's false. The Adventure Pass program is not "voluntary." It's law. In its current form it was authorized by Congress (and signed by G.W. Bush) under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. Under the Act, failure to display an Adventure Pass is subject to a $100 fine.

Fortunately, here in SoCal, the Forest Service rarely pursues the fine, and instead issues Notices of Noncompliance ("NONs"), which are basically "fix-it tickets," allowing you to buy the pass after the fact.

Comments: The start of this route is chossy and always will be. The rock quality is better after the start.

Comments: Straightforward climbing. Crux is fighting off the pump at the top. Totally onsightable, if you have the fitness. There's a good rest before the steep section. Milk the hell out of it.

Comments: Neither spelling is correct. It's "Ryane's Revenge." I know Ryane's mom, and that's how she spells her daughter's name.

Comments: Locker, please stop using the term "project" in the same sentence as "5.8". You're giving us a bad name.

Comments: Morbid trivia: The concrete slab in front of Boy Scout Wall has the distinction of being the site of the first homicide in 2007 in San Bernardino County. The shooting occurred at 15 minutes after midnight on January 1.

Comments: The two routes on low-angle rock below Fantasy Island are 10a-ish. They climb like J Tree slabs, minus the friction.

Comments: "Shady and convenient."

If you think this route is "shady," you should see the new stuff Jack is putting up.

Comments: There is no belay bolt per se. The leader clips the first two bolts before leaving the starting ledge. Most belayers belay from the ground.

Comments: Although KAOS is rated 5.11b in the guidebook, I agree with Chris Miller's comment to the Labyrinth listing that KAOS is harder than Labyrinth, which is my benchmark for 5.11c. On the other hand, KAOS is easier than Furry Pump, my benchmark for 5.12a. Therefore, I rate KAOS 5.11d.

Comments: A great route that deserves more attention than it gets. Mellow start leads to crux: small handholds with imaginary footholds. Fun gym-like moves lead to 2nd crux involving a flat sloped hold. Climb progressively easier, but no less fun, moves to anchor.

Stemming to wall across chimney is off-route (reduces difficulty to 5.11).

Comments: I think the crux is between the last bolt and the anchors.

Comments: jbak, I had trouble with javalina last time I climbed it, despite having onsighted it several years ago. I also wondered if something had broken off -- around the 2nd bolt, if memory serves.
