Looking straight at the only side with decent problems on it. This is the face that is visible from the road.

Comments: Road is currently in good shape. It gets graded every 18 months or so in my experience. Take it easy after it rains as this is when the most damage to the road occurs. Even if you're in an SUV or truck don't speed or plow through the puddles.

Comments: I was at this crag last week and spied two new(?) bolt lines. One is between The Reacharound and Stain in a desperately thin looking water streak, the other is between Golden Touch and Heart Shaped Box in another desperately thin looking water streak. Anyone have a clue what these are, who put them in, if they have gone, and at what grade they went? For the record, I could not see any holds on either route, nor was there any chalk where a hold might have been.

Comments: Cool holds, good movement, committing finish. Bring a couple pads for the uneven, rocky landing and a cool head for the thin, slopey topout.

Comments: Quick reminder of the first rule of bouldering: Know your downclimb. There is no straightforward-easy way off the top of this block. I did a tenuous shuffle across a foot ledge with lichen-y slopey hands to a point where I could jump to a pad on a detached boulder around the back. There also appeared to be some trees that could be shimmied down. Good luck!

Comments: Start: LH sidepull, RH pocket/pinch. Enjoy that flexing hold; if it held me, you'll [probably] be fine. ;)

Comments: Sit start on jug. Angle up and right using a crimp and a bad sloper to gain the start of Sukha. Don't go to the very top of the boulder, jump back down from first ledge.

Comments: Did this still not see an ascent? I got on it to play back when I was working the .12s on this wall, and it didn't seem that infeasible, maybe V8 crux (based purely on my imagination). Did any of the strong guys mentioned above end up trying it?
