Comments: Just talked to Pete Cleveland. He belayed Tommy Deuchler on this on lead he said. Not sure the date.

Comments: Feet all over the place at the bottom. Seriously. Actually, just kidding, but this was a lot of fun. I'd definitely put this on the list of things to lead one day.

Comments: You beat me to it! I came in to work early to look up the location of this, and you had already put it up. Nice little climb.

Comments: Directly to the left of the building in this picture is Demencia Senil (9a+, FA Chris Sharma) which might be the more famous of the routes, because of video of Sharma doing it in Progression. Iker Pou has sent it as well.

Comments: So you pull the lip and have a bunch of tall slab to do? Whats that clock in at, the slab section? Is it over by then, or is it still not a gimme?

Comments: I like tall guy things. Normally I'd say this is well out of my range of ability, but I'm going up next week to try to project this. I tried it last time and I just wasn't strong enough to stand up that tall, but we'll see.

Comments: Great climb, but I felt that the feet were kind of tenuous. Got pumped near the top, and somehow took a 25-30 footer at the last bolt before the anchors. Super classic, just bucked me off somehow. Put me upside down and backwards. Coolest/harshest fall I've taken. The bugger. Loved the climb still.

Comments: Great climb up until right before the top. Its got a really slabby start, big jugs, a weird parallel double hand crack near a bolt thats interesting, just a lot of fun. Then it kind of just slopes off to a whimpering finish. Still gave it 4 stars though, just because, it felt pretty awesome.

Comments: Fantastic climb. Had a little bit of everything, a slab on the knobs, a big juggy big move section, top section you get pumped, and the last bolt before the anchors I just sloped off the first time. Kind of surprising. Great stuff.

Comments: Misread the guidebook, and thought I just couldn't see the upper bolts. Makes it PG13 at least if you are like me and run this out. But that was all on me. Nice little climb though to warm up.

Comments: Who's got repeats on this? I know Alex Johnson did it, but I'm not sure if it was to the lip or all the way up.

Comments: I love this climb aesthetically, but I'm not strong enough to flash it so I'm afraid of the landing.

Comments: I would also like beta on the bouldering there. I know there is quite a bit, including Big Worm (V14), and Sunseeker (V13). Would anyone like to get some of the information about the boulders up or DM me about them for my upcoming trip to that area?

Comments: I'm not suggesting you pull the trad climb of Van Vleck, but if you BUILDER in the bouldering sense and do it incognito like Rhoads said, you should be okay.
