From Crag Full of Dynamite, the views to the north, into Los Padres National Forest, are spectacular.  The views alone may be reason enough to spend a day at this crag.

A fun variation to The Good, the Bad & the Ugly is to climb the first 6 bolts of that route and then veer right upon reaching the overhang.  It is possible to follow a right-arching hand crack up to the top of the wall.   <br /> <br />The crux of this variation involves delicate smearing with a cam below your feet.  Carry two pieces in the 1/2" to 1" range.  Rappel from bolts.

Marisa Fienup climbs G.O.P., at Derrydale cliff.  This steep first half of the climb includes fun moves off of abundant, positive edges (and goes at only about 5.7).  The slab above involves devious friction climbing that is a couple of grades harder.

My wife nearly put her hand down on this little creature as we were scrambling up the hill to the base of Exilis Dihedral.  At just 5-inches long and thinner than a pencil, this must be a very new arrival to the area.

Marisa Fienup passes the fourth bolt on Stuart's Rig at Wheeler Gorge.   <br /> <br />This photo actually depicts a great variation to Stuart's Rig.  After climbing the first 5 bolts of that route, follow a finger crack up and right to finish on Danger Boy.  A #2 TCU and a 0.75 camalot protect the crack. This variation is one of my favorite routes at Wheeler Gorge.
