Comments: I loved this route! It's 5.7 if you use/trust the loose blocks. Even then it's STIFF. There are tons of loose chockstones and other suspect rock, but if you work hard to avoid it most moves can be done using only the solid rock but probably adding a couple of number grades in difficulty. And if you look hard, there is solid gear as well. The traverse on the other hand is just plain dangerous (classic!). Traverse beta: LOOSE WEIGHT!

From the tree, rap ~60 feet to the bolt anchor @ the to... more >>

Comments: Just climbed Dementia for the first time today and was wondering why all these bolts where within reach? Total squeeze job!

Comments: We added some new cord to the chockstone today, but seriously?!? Why doesn't this have a proper anchor??? Such a fun climb, but needs a little work.... Seems like the first bolt might fall out soon too... (the clipping hold is also falling off).

Comments: On the first pitch I wasted a bunch of time trying to place RP's, only to kick them out when I climbed passed.

Comments: Just a note to add that there is some good rock climbing. There are about 5 developed sport climbing areas, and some ok bouldering around the country.

Comments: After the 3rd pitch, you can hop across the chimney to the left and get to the anchor above Erickson's Crack. 3 raps with a single rope and you are back @ your pack....

Comments: This is called Santa Ana in the new book.

There is a nut placement on the left that would keep you from rolling down the trail, but probably not off the ground....

Crash pad might be better pro than gear.

Comments: Wrong gully! This route starts way left of the Bowling Alley.... Probably why Tony didn't see the bolt.

Comments: Left option has 6 bolts total, no gear needed. Clipping hold for the last bolt is really creaky. Try not to break it....

Just kidding, chipping sucks....

Comments: No trad gear needed.

Descent option: If you don't want to climb with a 2nd rope. The top pitch can be rapped with a 70m. Then the first person can rap on a single 70 to the ground and tie on an extra rope....

Comments: A #4 c4 is useful. You can bump it up, but leave it by the little chockstone. You won't need it beyond there....

1 #4 (optional, but nice)
2 #3
2 #2

Comments: There is a huge rat, or rats that live in this route. You can avoid the mess, but don't be surprised if you see one in your face! It's nice to have a #4. You can bump it up most of the way... After every move there will be a bolt staring you in the face. Avoid clipping at all cost. I mean without rules, there would be friggin' anarchy!!

You can easily use the anchor from the dumb bolt route, or better yet step right and lower off the new hooks on Flight 67....

Comments: This would be 3 stars if the other wall wasn't there. It's annoying trying to avoid the stem. But there are really fun, well protected moves....

And you don't need anything bigger than a purple Camalot (and I don't mean #5).
