Comments: Hey Leif,
Browsing MP tonight I saw your post and thought I would chime in. Anyway, I was on the route the summer of 2014 and broke said hold off. I was not able to do the "new" move even off the dog and you are right about clipping the bolt.(VERY difficult) It would be interesting for someone stronger than I to go up there and let people know how hard it is now. Sorry:-(

Comments: Get your tech on! This route is really fun edge climbing, not the typical AF pocket pulling. I think a hand hold has come off by the 3rd bolt.(Pretty hard slimper pull to get to "the pocket"). It's pretty in your face from the bottom to the top with a great campsite rest in the middle.

Comments: I agree with Zoso, the 1st pitch might be 5.9 on TR which is what we did, but to call that 5.9 to lead is the definition of Sandbag... IMO I don't know why the FA'er didn't just bolt it as it is fun to climb, but could get someone hurt if you blew it as it doesn't take good gear in the corner. The 2nd pitch has the best handcrack in BCC for about 10 feet, then traverses to a chossy overhang. Won't be back on this one...

Comments: This route has been rebolted with glue-ins (along with most of the routes at Division). A couple of the bolts have been moved up on the slab to make it not as scary. There is a post about this route not being safe. If you can climb 5.10, with the new bolts IMO this route is not unsafe and quite fun. A bit of a change from the rest of the routes at Division with some good technical climbing up top.

Comments: Climbs a lot like Weed Killer on JHCOB Wall. Really fun technical climbing with plenty of rests. In the shade all day.

Comments: This is one of my favorite routes at the crag. It has a little bit of everything; it eases you into the pitch with some fun easy climbing on jugs, then a technical crux at the slab, a power crux over the roof and a great endurance crux at the finish. Great job on this one Neal!

Comments: Great route. The first few bolts had some really fun climbing. The crux below the bulge was really hard for me 6'1" and not bad for my partner (squatty and easier if you are shorter), and the bulge was really hard for my partner 5'5" and not bad for me (big reach and easier if you are taller). I agree with Jay, Man Chowder is a better route.

Comments: This route is awesome! Really varied and sustained with great movement. Had to fight for the onsight on this one. My partner and I agree, it is the best route we did in the 4 days of our vacation at The Head.

Comments: A bit of a handbag at 12a but really fun route and in a great position. A little unfortunate that someone had put tick marks on every possible feature on the route. Really takes away from people trying to onsight.

Comments: Darren, you are correct except that the next routes right of Tim's route are actually three routes that share the same start. If you go up the first two bolts and then go left, like Kevin said, it is a route called "The Bewildering Minute" that Neal Carroll put up a couple years ago. It is 12c. Really good. If you go right at the second bolt, you go into the two routes that split at the forth bolt, "Empty Your Pockets" on the left and "Bender" on the right. A lot of bolts in this area...

Comments: I think both pitches on this are great. I have done it a few times, and there is only one comment on it, so I thought I would chime in. Anyway, the first pitch is really fun "solid" rock. The second pitch is the "money" pitch and is a little spooky, but adds character to the pitch. Hard move off the belay, then big jugs out a series of roofs. Not many places you get that kind of exposure around here!!! FYI we did the first two pitches of Gothic Miller, lowered down to the top of the first ... more >>

Comments: I agree that the chains could be more inconspicuous, but the Metolius rap hangers are terrible. They kink up the rope and are a pain to thread.

Comments: Regardless of the grade, these routes are unique and awesome!! Go get on them. FYI I just did Huecos with a 90m rope and only had about 10 feet of rope left when I reached the ground. It would be a rope stretcher with a 80m rope.

Comments: I don't think the greasy comment is appropriate. If you don't like 'em short and stout maybe it's not for you, but IMO it's a really cool 35' boulder problem with bolts.
