Comments: BEWARE: SKETCHY BOLTS.

Bottom bolt on "Informer" is spinning-both the bolt and the hanger. Lots of spinners around-climbed every route on the main formation (the 10c/b through the far right 11) and there were multiple spinning hangers and bolts that were half pulled out. Wouldn't want to fall on lots of them-the whole area needs a lot of rebolting attention for safe climbing.

Comments: There's tons of SAR activity associated with individuals inexperienced in climbing and backcountry skills going beyond the rock pool and injuring themselves. Making the traverses easier would make this problem much worse. While this is an urban crag, we try to minimize the impact as much as possible-installing a rebar step would not be a step in the right direction.

Furthermore, for climbers (even if they are "gumbys") who are capable of climbing back in the park the traverse should not be diff... more >>

Comments: P1 is not sleeper/unsafe. Definitely don't fall but the move isn't particularly hard or scary.

Gear: we had 5 .5's and 4 .75's and this made the dihedral much more enjoyable-just plugged and kept going up the beautiful pitch without worrying too much about gear management. We also thought the regular 10a finish out left was extremely enjoyable. It is exposed and provides great views of the meadows and domes in the distance. Incredible route!!

Comments: I agree with Michael. The picture currently displayed shows the anchors after 3 bolts, but those no longer exist. 8 draws are now needed before moving into 3-4 fixed chain draws and then anchors. It isn't that chossy/sharp, and the belayer is protected on that section because of the overhang. Pretty cool upper section, very steep. I'm saying more in the 11c range compared to the surrounding climbs.

Comments: The trash all around the park is pretty awful. Please do the community a favor and pick up some items and throw them away-a little goes a long way if everyone pitches in.

And DON'T smoke in the park..it is incredibly dry I was amazed at the number of climbers smoking and then dropping the butts in the dry bushes!

Comments: "Avoid the bailout left and stay on course through the last clip for full value"

Below that bolt there are 3 pretty good crimps...but no chalk on the direct line above. Everyone seems to go slightly left. Is this the bailout'? Or is the bailout going way left?

Comments: Don't feel like the roof is anywhere near 11a. More like 10 b/c. The third or second to last bolt before the anchors feels tough if you climb it direct and don't skirt left to all the chalk. Seems as though no one climbs it direct...hmm.
