Comments: Ya, it's a fun little line! It rarely gets climbed though, so lichen seems to want to grow. Worthy of some attention for sure.

Comments: The old, nasty fixed draws have now been replaced with new, steel Climb Tech permadraws. Enjoy!

Comments: Ya, I stayed slightly right of the arĂȘte for the crux on the FA. I watched a tall person go way left on toprope. It's a totally different route if you go way left and probably impossible to clip, but also a bit contrived if you force yourself to go right. It's definitely a funky crux and a little sharp.

Comments: No, it's not part of the closure. You are free to climb there. Highlander, Evil, and Tetanus Gardens are closed now for the Tunnel 2 closure.

Comments: If you start down and right of the first bolt on the face and traverse left just above it, this route turns into a 12b start. Kind of a fun variation.

Comments: Really savage crimping by the first bolt! This is definitely the best route on the wall, as far as rock quality and movement. I gave it an extra star for that reason. The crux right sidepull crimp is going to break soon, I crumbled a little bit of it already. Fun climbing though, nice find, Mark!

Comments: No worries. The bolt probably just needed to be tightened down originally, and then maybe someone took a big lead fall on it, breaking a piece of rock around the hole and bending the bolt possibly. It did seem a little broken around the hole when I was up there yesterday. Either way, it's replaced and safe to climb on now.

Comments: I replaced the crux bolt this morning. It is weird why someone would take a bolt, hanger, and permadraw and not replace it or post about it here.

Comments: Draws were stolen on this again and also a few on Mission Impossible. Big bummer.

Comments: Fun climbing on the roof, I was able to climb to the lip of the roof (being 5'10'' helps) on my second try but was stumped when I had to move off of the crimps over the lip. Getting the right foot established on the face above the roof is hard, need better beta. Nice job cleaning and sending this thing, Mark!

Comments: Yes, Alan had not yet finished the route before the book came out. We had actually talked before he bolted it about the name and whether or not to bolt it. The first pitch has been around for years, nameless, until Alan decided to finish this route off and bring it all the way to the top of the wall. Nice work, Alan!

Comments: Thanks, Elijah! I love the crimping on this route, though it is short and I am biased....

Comments: Ya, it's a fun variation and easier for those of us who can't stick that move yet.

Comments: Nice send, Chris! Ya, that move is now definitely hard and height-dependent, great job figuring it out. I am going to settle for a slightly easier variation, going left at the broken hold, instead of straight up which would make it around 13c, instead of 13d.

Comments: This route felt hard, definitely not my style, but felt harder than anything else at the cliff. Does anyone know what the variation just left of this is? It's to the right of Mofo and has black bolts.

Comments: Either way, it's a cool route! I really liked the movement climbing over the first bulge. It's a great find, and I only wish it were longer.

Comments: This route is really good for a short, bouldery route. It has just two hard moves, and I found a secret heel hook that made them very doable. It may be a bit soft for the grade given, fun route though!

Comments: Great route! 13a feels about right, an interesting crux moving up past the last bolt.
