Comments: I rode the red truck with CMRCA and rented a motor bike also; both worked fine. I wanted to sleep after eating. The climbing was fun and longer and steeper than it looked. Great lines and good bolts. Thanks for all the hard work going into this place.

Comments: I almost died on this route. We tried doing it as a single pitch; wrong idea. When I tried to pass the roof/crux after a low bolt, I fell and fell because somehow my belayer thought I was clipping, even after I had fallen at the same place a couple of times. She finally stopped me and I ended up with a swollen rather than a broken neck. Do it in two pitches and ask Scot to put in a bolt at the crux...

Comments: If you are near Venezuela, I doubt this is posted in the correct location. Maybe post it under South America. The moderators can help fix it.

Comments: A large flake broke off after another person got on the route, fourth of the day, and it was a big one! Wear your helmet belaying too!

Comments: Another of my FA and the line right of it; sit start to the right edge of the end of the flake above start. Finish straight up. Hard and scary. Not pictured.

Starting footholds may be under sand...

Best to use palms up jam in horizontal but don't fall!

Comments: This was one of the first problems Jay Anderson and I did in Pima Canyon @ mid 80s. The sand was a bit lower and one of the sit starts on the right side is now higher and the footholds seem to be getting lower!

I'm sure he didn't give it this goofy name.

Comments: I pretty much put the bolts where I could hang on and clip them. If someone else has a suggestion about where I can improve my ego-based drilling, send me a pm. Promise I'll look at changing if it's a better placement. I worked and worked to make sure it was safe. Still scares me everytime I lead it though.

Laurel is shorter than me. You can see evidence on the photo that she can do the crux safely.

Comments: I don't care what percent you are, it is a battle worth fighting for. Our legislators need to know they are accountable to all of us and that is what we need to do: call or write your opposition to this bad idea.

Comments: It looks like Camelback in Phoenix. There it's called Breccia, a mud flow containing chunks of rolled up rock, granite pieces rolled up and ground up.

Looks similar.

Comments: I climbed this last weekend. I did the first two pitches in one with a single 70m rope. I found the crux up high at the upper finger crack where you climb the OW and protect in the finger crack. Great and varied basalt route!

Comments: that is not the walk up I use; more to the left of the photo. I head to the NW arete of Headwall, aim for a pinnacle above and pass behind it. Downclimb a bit then go up (beehive here; don't swat bees) and behind another pinnacle then up.

Comments: I did this route with Marc and Armand Ballart two years ago. We started late and finished early. Armand had been up the Fire spire @ 50 times by then. Routefinding is tricky, pro is sketchy. Fun climbing and way exposed.

Comments: We found someone's anchor at Courthouse Rock. It was left near the standard rappel. Describe it to me in an email. I'll get it back to you.

Comments: Todd Foor and I climbed it yesterday. I think it was great fun and adventurous. I think it needs a few more ascents to clean the flaky stuff off. A bit in the middle of the third pitch the rock deteriorated on the face and I leaned left to the crack, not much more solid, but it gave me pause since I was a little ways above the bolt. The crack needs some cleaning there, I tossed off a bit.
