Comments: Finally got to do the whole route today. Dan's description was pretty much spot on. Except it only seemed like about 800 instead of 1200 feet. Most pitches we only used half of our 70....

I did notice a couple of hangers missing here and there but on super easy sections. The only piece of gear we used was on P3, a #2 Camalot (a smaller cam would have fit as well). After P4, you can belay from the comfy ledge instead of the anchor. There is a nice crack on the right side of the top t... more >>

Just get back in your time machine and unclip the anchor.... Only kidding with you. Hope you get them back.

Comments: "A couple extra large cams"
Extra as in double or triple #3, OR Extra-Large like #6 and Valley Giant?

I started a new one to keep it going...

Comments: I don't have anything to add to the photography discussion. But every time you post pictures of Lily I find myself humming this song...



Great photos... but I can't stop the MUSIC in my head!

Comments: Thanks Anthony

I figured there was a reason... Just couldn't figure it out on my own.
Maybe the problems on the Mental Block should be listed as MB? I guess it doesn't matter since there are only a couple...

Comments: You can bail from the 1st or 2nd pitch with one rope. Believe me, I've been rained off a couple times.... Obviously, the tree is the first anchor. The 1st pitch belay ledge usually has slings in place on the right side (if you are expecting to bail, bring some extra webbing and rings). From here, you can get to the anchor for George's Tree, and from here to the ground. I would agree that it is harder to get down with one rope from P3 and higher....

Comments: so you think Anthony meant FA? He type-O'd 7 routes? Must mean something else??

Comments: I added a sling to the thread under the scary looking block on the top of this today. Only mentioning it incase anyone else decides to do the same. There is some kind of rodent or maybe a bat living in there and it didn't like it when I stuck my hand in.
Anyway, the climbing was fun and fairly easy up to the roof. The crux is just pulling over...

Comments: Where is it in relation to the new anchor? I remember what it looked like, with the little, head-sized rock supporting it. I even rapped off it, so you can imagine I looked at it pretty hard (waiting for it to fall and kill me).... Didn't notice it today, so I assumed it got trundled. But if you say it is there, I believe you.

Thanks for the new anchor.

Comments: Is the boulder that the cable was on gone? I couldn't recognize it. Lots of big loose blocks up there, but they didn't look like the one the cable was around....

This used to be rated 5.6.

Comments: A #2 Helium friend didn't fit into the suggested gear placement, but a green C4 works great. No need for any other gear except quickdraws of course....

We had tons of rope left rapping with our 70m. Seems like a 60m will reach (4th class down-climb if not).

Comments: This is listed as Quadrille in the new book. FA Mike Brooks, '82 (whoever put it up, it's pretty fun). A nice short route to do at least once.... You all know you look at it every time you walk by....

Comments: There is a wasp nest on the left right as you start off of Red Ledge. If you keep right on the really loose rock, you can avoid the nest. Don't bang on holds to test them like I did, "they" get mad.... just move fast through the start and you should be fine.

Comments: Maybe we could drop the Unknown from all the routes? It is a little confusing. Even if we are not 100% on the names, anything is better than Unknown....
Bummer about the retro-bolts, but aside from that, it's not a bad crag. Maybe a few too many anchors, seems like some could be shared.... But I do appreciate the hooks. Thanks for that... makes cleaning a snap.

Comments: The ear reminded me of Lumpy and was pretty hard for a warm up.... First I tried to jam and chimney behind it, but it was easier to just layback on the outside.
