Comments: What is going on with all this bolting of existing trad or mixed climbs. I just went to the Creak side wall yesterday and there were bolts all over 3 existing trad/mixed climbs. Why? They were all so much fun just the way they were. This has got to stop or some day all trad lines will be bolted. I never minded to much when the Geezer wall was bolted since I have never seen a climber on it until they were bolted but that does not mean some one can start bolting all of our fun trad lines in t... more >>

Comments: I just went to the wall again yesterday and it is really unfortunate this climb was bolted. I have always enjoyed it as a gear lead. Actually I would not even give it a R rating because I have always found plenty of gear placement to protect it.

Comments: Once again I can not believe someone added bolts to this climb. It was really fun just the way it was.

Comments: Does anyone no What the deal is with the bolts on this route. It originally had 1 bolt and protected just fine with gear. It now has 7 bolts on this climb. Did the first ascent party retro-bolt it or what. It was a fun and exciting lead just the way it was.

Comments: I am sure we cheated on this one, but it was easier than Big Boy and Lucky Charms, since you can stem all the way up to the 3rd bolt if you want too. Then there is just one powerful move left to the arÍte. If you do not stem, the start is a lot harder than 5.10.

Comments: Our group all thought this climb was 5.9 and very fun. It is a bit reachy. I agree with the PG-13 because the clips were spicy.

Comments: The old guidebook said to take FS 510, but the directions given on this website directs you to FS 530, which is the correct way to the crag. If you are watching your odometer, the pullout is closer to 4 miles from the pavement.

Comments: Wow exciting climb lots of fun though. It does require 2 ropes for the rappel.

Comments: If you want a really fun moderate outing, climb the first 2 pitches of Ame's Way, and at the last bolt of the second pitch, traverse 10 feet to the right to an anchor. Then climb the final pitch of Skyline ArÍte, which is one of the best pitches of climbing I have done. This bypasses the stout for the grade roof cruxes on both climbs.

Comments: I rapped down the first time and walked off the second time. I would recommend the walkoff, it is a lot of fun unless you are planning to climb more after.

Comments: It is harder than 5.9 going from the first to second bolt in my opinion. In a recent wall street guide book the bolted slab route to the right is listed at 5.10 and this climb is just as hard. Both are fun climbs though.

Comments: Another climber told us this was 5.8 which most of it is but the crux 3/4 the way up the first pitch was definitely 5.10 but really good climbing. I did not get to do the second pitch but it looks like more moderate fun climbing. We used a 70m rope so I am not sure if a 60m would work or not.

Comments: If you climb this to the first set of anchors it is only 5.9 and a lot of fun.

Comments: This was a really fun climb, I would recommend using a 70m rope. The rap to the ground was quite a stretch for 60m and you will not have enough rope if you tried to rap the route (you have to rap down and right).

Comments: If someone does not beat me to it I will change out the anchor on the second rappel.

Comments: This climb was really gritty and it was a lot harder than 9+. A good example is the start of tarzan is 10a and I cand do tarzan no problem but every time I tried the crux my feet would grit off and the fall is onto a ledge (the climb was not worth the risk of injury to me). I am not sure why the bolt line did not contunue up the nice slab.

Comments: This climb is a lot of fun. I thought it was closer to 5.9, it is definatly harder than muffin top.

Comments: Your Welcome The traditional slung tree top anchor led to alot of rock fall on the climber/belayer below and if you rapelled from there just pulling the rope could bring some rocks down. I know this was probablly all climbed before but the new bolt lines we added allow you to climb some really fun otherwise unprotected terrain above. We will post some topos and updates in the near future.

Comments: Fun climb we felt like it was easily 5.8 and would be a very stout lead for a beginer.

Comments: I agree this is much harder than 5.8 infact I was just there and based on the guide book looker is the far left route and there is no climb left of it but it could easily be rated 10a. Also the picture posted does not look like the correct route. Looker is more slabby and less petina.

Comments: Why more traffic? That is a good question. I also enjoy the solitude but the climbs and trails seem to grow over by the time I climb them again so I thought they would clean up very well with more trafic. I think the 4x4 access may keep some of the crowds down. I can still count on one hand how many times I have seen another climber up there.

Comments: This climb was short but a lot of fun. take long slings for the ancors or draws and slings. There is easy access to the top to clean your anchors when you are done.

Comments: It is nice to hear some one went up to checkout marryellens gulch. My appoligies on the trail every year I try to re-establish the trail but this year I have not made it up yet. Sometimes you can connect deer trails up to the wall.
