Comments: The information provided above by Mr. Hand is incorrect. The entire Gym cliffline is on BLM land, as well as most of the land north of the gym (to about half-way to the North End). But as they say on Reading Rainbow, don't take my word for it. Go here and enter Schedule Number 3549000000005. CLick on the "Show Parcel Map" button. You will want to zoom in ~4 times, then click the "Aerial Photo" check box (on the left), then pan up to the Gym area.

Comments: I concur with the comments above. I don't really understand how grades are assigned at this crag, but with good beta, this is harder than Carbs & Caffeine, and easier than Yellow Wall, so I guess that makes it "11b".

Comments: Due to lack of friction btwn the rope & biner? I think it's doubtful one would fall onto the first bolt, since you can clip the second easily from the horizontal break. Plus the 2nd bolt is close enough that you never really lead above the 1st bolt, and the 1st is ~30' up, so you'd have to pull the belayer that far to hit the ground, which would be hard to do on what amounts to a TR fall. But ya, use your own judgment.

Comments: Ben,

This book will have several hundred new routes that have been added since the Sharp End book was published. I haven't seen it, but I'm sure it will be worth the $$ just to avoid dog attacks at Cactus Cliff.

Comments: Its definitely chipped. If "mostly" means more than half, then I would say its not "mostly" chippped. But there are more than a few chipped holds if my memory serves. I thought it climbed really nice, but like many chipped routes, it appears to have been fit to the FAs dimensions, which is kinda lame IMO. Still worth trying if you're in the area. Check the bolts first.

Comments: The climbing is a lot more sustained, but the rock is a lot worse. The bloks on the right look super sketchy. Have your belayer stand off to the left. More of a pump route than a power route.

Comments: While I personally agree with Monty, I believe Mike is a JeffCo Open Space Ranger, so I recommend that we follow his advice.

At this point, I don't believe these areas are getting so much traffic that the lack of a designated trail will result in multiple social trails.

Comments: IMHO, this is one of the best routes at Shelf--probably top ten. Its clearly the best 5.11 of the 109 I've done at Shelf. The stone on the upper half is as good as the better stuff at Siurana.
