Comments: The route to the right of P.O.P. (Power of Perfection) is called Mean People Suck. Skin Diver is the overhang with cracks to the right of Mean People Suck and does not have bolts. It can be top roped and is also a scary trad. lead. Watch for Bee's, hence the name Skin Diver, they may have moved?

Comments: Correction: It's called the Nook

A #2 - #3 Nut or #0 Cam works well for the last part if you feel you need it.

Comments: Also watch for vehicle break-in's. It hasn't happened for several years, but don't leave climbing gear or anything valuable in your vehicle. Always park where you can keep an eye on it. If you ever see something going down. Get the license plates and contact 911.

Comments: This is not Fire Eater Cafe. This is Mean People Suck and or the new bolted line in it. Fire Eater is on the steep overhang to the left. I bolted it in 1998.

Comments: 12/31 I went up to check things out. Knee deep snow all the way to base camp.
RE:
After the 6th Pitch the rock changes from blank slab to vertical jug holds. You can basically climb anywhere on low grades to the top.
Just watch for more loose rock on lines that aren't as popular.
Bigwall routes that are usually low grades always have optional detours. I stick to the original line for traditional values and cleaner rock. I am interested in trying the variations though.

Comments: I HAD A BLAST....but

I wasn't impressed with the 30 year old SMC bolt hangers. Also clipped some odd questionable chains with hundreds of rusted washers and lowering on a single ancient carabiner is so 1980's.

I'd be willing on donating hangers etc. to locals if need be. I'll even help do the work. This place is so cool it needs attention.

Comments: Thanks again Paul for the contact. I spoke with Bob many times since. I lost contact because my PC died, however I was able to get some really cool photos from him, John Sherman and detailed articles. The guide has a complete section on the History of CoR.

Comments: Every crag lies in the shadow of Hueco Tanks. Hueco is a diamond and Pena Blanca is a jewel that surrounds it. If there was no Hueco. Pena Blanca would be in the limelight as a local crag. This is the second best place to boulder in this area and the 1st and only place to enjoy pure grain free - outback & wild bouldering like it should be. No gates, times, Rangers or hype. Just you and the mountain.

Comments: In the guide currently being published this boulder is known as Aurora Boulder. The boulder problem is not listed in the guide. So FRA works. I'd be happy to add this to the guide.

Comments: New high quality bp's have been established on the north face called The Spore V9+ (roof) and Washburn Effect V7 - V8 var. (hand rail traverse into The Spore)
The chossy southeast face etc. should be ignored.

Comments: This area seems to be below Eagles Nest? And is new. Here's a link to the topos vcrux.com/volcano.aspx where Eagles Nest is perched above this area. Not sure but you can delete this...
