Comments: Thanks, Todd! Updated. Yes, ran into Jeff Neer - he also redid the start of "Exit Stage Left" with John Sherman. A different steep start and 4 stars now, IMO.

Comments: Replaced the "industrial" gated hooks with new Mussy Hooks today.

Also, replaced the old quick-links with new plated, tested ones from France.

Thanks to the ASCA for the hardware!

Comments: We have recently added a kid & pet-friendly crossing (just below the Narrows), and 7 new routes to this area. The new climbs are moderate (from 5.3 to 5.10b), making "Pink Face Area" an even better beginner area.

Please stay on established trails.

Comments: Fraggle Rock is right off the Lower Gorge road and the kid/pet-friendly crossing to Pink Wall. It has most of the elements of the ORG found in the more difficult climbs: sloping edges, fun incuts - and finishes with easy eyebrows to the anchors.

A great introduction to the type of climbing found in the gorge for the beginning climber, non-climbing friend or family outing with the youngsters.

Comments: As BAd stated, we replaced the worn open-shuts with Mussy Hooks. We were able to re-use the far right bolt, and added one more bolt to the right of that - making the anchor clip a little easier.

Comments: ^^Thanks for the heads-up - we will check them occasionally. They certainly wear longer than the Mussy's (which have their own gate issues, as well).

Fixe Hardware is in Bishop where I live - like 5 blocks away. Pretty sure they will be there for issues with anchor replacement hardware.

Comments: Replaced the anchors on Caffeine Tuesday, January 12, 2016. The hardened steel of the Dracos should hold out significantly longer than open-shuts or Mussys, and the switch-out is easier now with the ASCA hanger/SS quick-link configuration.

Due to some bad rock quality issues, the new anchors are in the nearest solid rock slightly below the old open-shuts. Doesn't change the finish.

Please use your own draws for top-roping!

Also, tightened the left anchor bolt that was loose.

Thanks to the ASCA for the gear!
