Comments: Regarding the Brown Recluse rappel, it IS possible to do it with a single 70M rope. However, on at least 2 of the 9 or so raps, the next station was essentially at the end of the rope. Fortunately, the heavier of us went first to establish the next station and "tether" the lighter of us with his daisy chain (and secure the rope!). The final rap dumped us out, at the end of the rope, onto a narrow ledge 20 feet off the deck, but we were able to capture the rope end and scramble into a corner t... more >>

Comments: The off-width is evidently more enjoyable if you make your second carry the pack. If that's what you're into. (I suppose it's probably harder if you're into it, but you get more gear ...).

Comments: I thought this was pretty fun - nice hand crack at the bottom, and a fun move getting into and around the roof (a crimp on the right edge of the roof makes it lots easier to get a left hand up and into a layback). Short but sweet.

Comments: I never felt totally secure on this one. There are some heady moves pretty far above the bolts. The moves leading to the roof are definitely not as easy as they appear from below . . .

Comments: The traverse section is not as loose and crumbly as first appears. The feet are actually quite solid, and the holds are good. Fun route, nice variety.

Comments: This route was also somewhat dirty and loose, lichen below, loose rock above. We knocked off several loose flakes near the top. The moves were pretty cool though . . . just needs more traffic to clean it up!

Comments: The route was somewhat loose and dirty throughout. The move off the deck was a little exposed. The section past the third bolt and before the roof is somewhat spooky given the rock and bolt quality. But with more traffic and better bolts, this could be a fun route.

Comments: Great climb! Solid friction and good rock throughout. A couple thought provoking moves after the roof crux keep it interesting.

Comments: I agree that this rock feels like Taquitz rock. Smooth and not as much friction as other Jtree rock. This route reminded me of "El Camino Real" at Taquitz, although much easier.

Comments: I didn't enjoy this climb. The crack is flared and gear doesn't seem all that nice. I guess the crux came low, but there were all these buckets just right . . . should I feel guilty for using them? Short climb . . . how did it get two stars in Randy's guide?
