Comments: 3rd bolt was coming out. Luckily I didn't fall on it. It's marked with an X. I put it back in by hand but unsure if it would hold a fall.

Comments: Going to the 5th bolt seemed 12b/c. I asked a few people at the crag and they said something broke off between 4-5 bolt. You have to move off a heinous 1/4 pad crimp to get to the 5th bolt. If this doesn't sound right then I'm guessing something broke.

Comments: P1: 9+/10a (soooo good with one crux move)

P2: 10a (roof pull was sweet)

P3-4: 10a/b (These are way short so we combined these two using alpine draws for rope drag) BEST PITCHES HANDS DOWN especially with the undercling goodness at the flake on P4.

Top out P4, move the belay 20 ft right and fire up the last good pitch

P5: 5.9 (Sweet traverse in a crack at midway point)

Three raps w/70 meter rope

15 draws were more than enough

Comments: Thought pitch one (right start not left) was 5.9 but it was a good time. We did this in three pitches. Pitch two was 5.10 a/b which was the crux for us. Pitch three was sweet climbing the arete instead of going left past it (which bolt line was correct I am unsure, but we thought the arete felt 9+/10- so maybe that was the correct last pitch).. Thought the crux move on this was similar in difficulty to simple truths (10c) to the left.

Down in three raps with 70.
15 draws were more than enough.

Comments: First two pitches may only be 5.8 but they are weird off width that you need 4's and 5's to protect or run it out. Pitch 7 is why you brought your RP's. The first bolt is 25 ft or so up (with 5.9ish climbing) and gear is marginal to not at all before that unless you have a #1 RP. Top two pitches are dirty as hell and loose. Besides what was said here all the other pitches have solid gear placements. Bring more small gear for upper pitches. Walk off through first creek. This is the easiest ... more >>

Comments: The 5th bolt is still loose on this route and unable to be tightened. The first four chains no longer have biners on them. They were gone when we arrived.

EDIT: (5/21/15) Was just back today. Someone put brand new biners on first five draws. Thank you Simon.

Comments: There is a sweet mono at one of the crux's. Use it, but don't fall cause you would possibly break your finger.

Comments: Thought this was a 5.9 so we warmed up on it. It felt harder but I didn't think 11c. Good fun though. Don't pull too hard on the glued on rock. Haha

Comments: Did it in a jetta with ease. Did I make at light speed? No but my car was fine with the last two miles. Loved this place. Will be back as much as possible.

Comments: A key hold broke off at the crux. This feels more like a low 11 now.

Comments: There is a sport route to the left and also right of allied forces. The one on the left has perma draws on it. What are these new climbs? They look way fun.

Comments: Slab climb with two steep sections. First steep section pulling the bulge down low (10aish) and the crux comes at the top (last three bolts). The holds until the crux are suspect. Tread lightly on a good portion of this climb. The rating felt soft for my party. I thought mid 11 or so. Great long climb that throws a lot of different styles at you. Get on it.

(Edit 3/15/15): I am 5.10 roughly. It could have been easier due to the fact that the crux had tick marks on it prior to our arrival. The c... more >>

Comments: Stage III sprain after trying to top out one week ago. Went back today and sent. This top out is sketch. Be careful. There is a reason why a bunch of people have comments on here about racking there ankles. Cheers.

Comments: Im also not a stick clip person but would advise using a stick clip even if this is not your limit. Something breaking would result in a nasty fall if you blew the first bolt. Besides the initial start this is a great climb with varied movement.

Comments: Great new area. Both 10s are in your face right away. The center route shed a hold that made it feel more low 11 now but still great. The 12 felt harder than 12a but to each there own. Go send.

Comments: The rock down low is suspect if your pulling out and not down. Remember where you are. Great route. 11c if you go direct to chains and 11a if you go left from last bolt. If you stay on route don't worry about rock quality. Enjoy.

Comments: Great Wall for the 10 leader and 11a/b as well. Needs some more traffic to clean up. No one is ever there so expect a peaceful crag.

Comments: Great route. Never climbed a trad route that had this type of gymnastic moves. Threw this thing will all trad gear even though the bolt looked tempting. Great climbing. Loved this thing but I enjoy steep sport climbing.

Comments: Led this and wasn't too impressed. The local climbing shop dude even said it was his favorite and to do it before i left j tree. Maybe i wasn't too impressed because it was 85 degrees out, and hand jams were not too impressive. I will say the 10b variation at the roof was fun. I cannot comment on the original 5.9 route since i never did it that way but, the other two in my party said the original 5.9 was fun.

Comments: I looked for this problem for three days on and off while visiting the area. I even bought the guide book for climbing in Marquette. I even had two locals (who were not climbers) read the description and they couldn't find it either. Where the hell is this thing?

Comments: Did this the other day. Classic crack. Someone slung the boulder at the top with a rope for an easy way to anchor. Left some blood on the wall halfway up. Also you can TR it with 70 with easy with plenty of rope left over.
