Comments: This is not surprising. UV radiation damage is cumulative, and even if the draws are not exposed to direct sunlight they WILL degrade after enough time. My guess is that the non-faded colors speak for the fact that the draws somehow stayed fairly clean from dust and, probably, that the webbing degradation was uniform, rather than localized at their surface... in essence, slow cooking over 10 years...

Comments: By the way Todd and John... I sort of randomly assigned names to the sub-areas, because I didn't know much about this place and I wanted to make this site to get feedback from the community. If you guys have different names that you use or prefer, please let me know and I'll edit the MP entries appropriately.

Comments: Are they up high? I could never see bees close to the base anywhere. But I've been called "distracted" before.

Comments: Thanks a bunch Todd. It was great to meet you up there!... please, any info you provide and/or post will be highly appreciated. I intend to put some time and work in this place in the following months. Also, if you guys also find a "renewed interest", just let me know and I'll join you and help. My prime objective since I saw this place for the first time was the headwall at the main buttress... but the bees are a bit of a concern... Maybe we can think about some bee management plan?

Comments: uh? You mean that the fat bolts are not safe for direct contact with the rope (without leaver bins) right? When we did the multiple routes we set single fixed ropes to lockers on the hangers.

Comments: Funny, that's what I was considering as a way to get up the cliff. Vince was more cautious and found a way to walk up to the top by the back side. This part of the cliff is indeed barely staying together, but there is a lot of good rock in places both right and left of it.

Comments: Cool, got it... I think I know exactly which one is your route. I will like to get all this sorted out in the following weeks and keep updating this page as we get more info. I'll try to contact Todd. I think this crag deserves some more attention. Let's see how many sportos are not too lazy to do a bit of hiking.

BTW, do you know if any of the cracks have been climbed? I saw a few lines that can go as mixed moderates or intermediates.

It will be great if you come. I'll rig a big tarp for shad... more >>

Comments: Haha... good to know jbak. The rock does look great and solid in that area, but we need to start getting on it to tell for sure. Vince and I do have a knack for finding very choosy lines. Is your 3-pitch route the one that goes up a small roof?

Comments: That flake was both pried with a crowbar to check that it was solid and then reinforced with glue in a crack on the right side. It ain't going nowhere dudes!

I is a bit spooky because it sounds hollow, but the back side of it is very wide and solid. Maaaaybe if some freak comes and start pulling out like a mofo on the right side, the crack could possibly start expanding more and more damaging the robustness of the feature. Well, don't do it and live with it. Rock climbing requires learning to ... more >>

Comments: Did this clean (no bolts clipped) . Two pieces at the top are less than ideal, but everything is bomber under that, so I think a fall from the last few moves would be big but save.

Comments: Nick found a new secret beta. I tried it, and it makes the slab move easier than the lower roof part. In this way, the route is .11- maximum.

Comments: The anchor biners were stolen from this route. We had to add new ones a couple of weeks ago. Clearly the person who did it downclimbed or topped out, either way seems a lot of work to booty two old biners... what is up with that?
This is an annoyance for climbers since the anchors have no chains. Please respect the climbing area and honor the fixed gear, it is left there for your own convenience.

Comments: well, well, good! I wondered about the FA for a long time.
I had seen the second pitch and I have to admit that it gives me the willies...
I did try the line that splits to the right after the first crux, a broken crack that supposedly goes at mid .12, and which I thought was the first pitch for the upper corner... it was hard to climb, very dirty and will be tricky to protect (I was only trying the moves on TR from the Judge anchor).
Does anybody know anything about this variation?
