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

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?

Comments: Looks like an undercling broke off at the top *recently??* right next to the third bolt. There's no obvious way to move up and right to where the TR anchors are located but there appears to be a sequence that would top out going left (pretty reachy/hard). Has this seen a recent ascent to verify the grade? Flake out left just after first bolt is also very flexible! For all these warnings I will add that the movement is pretty incredible for a 3 bolt problem :)

Comments: AMAZING! Best route of my visit!
Alternative descent is to belay up your second, top out the climb, walk back into the chimney, boulder out, and scramble/hike down (the portion of the 'walkoff' that navigates the summit is nearly technical and a bit heady). I didn't see any two bolt anchor in the dihedral (But maybe I didn't look close enough).

Comments: BEWARE FIXED ANCHORS!! All the lower-offs that I saw at The Alcove (5.June.2013) were in desperate need of replacement. They were all dangerously worn and sharp!! I do not recommend lowering off of them and you should instead rappel (and NEVER TR on permanent anchors).
