Comments: I haven't been on it in a couple years, but maybe I'll check it out and see if any of the little credit card crimps out left broke off. It is a great winter spot since it gets sun in the morning. Glad you enjoyed it!

Comments: Stick clip very, very mandatory! If you don't want to die. Heinous approach!

Comments: Easy there, 2chains. These climbs are fun, and it's a great way to avoid crowds. Put up just one quality line in the canyon, and you'll see how hard it is to clean routes. How about a little less trolling.

Comments: Thanks! Also, thanks for bringing me up there so I could bolt this! I can't wait to try your new rigs in the Dungeon!

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: 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....
