Comments: This is a fantastic rock climb with a bouldery crux, an arm numbing pump, and an exciting finish!

Comments: WTS now has 4 bolts through the initial bouldery crux. The additional bolt was approved by the SSPFHRG in June, and I installed the bolt yesterday. This makes WTS a much safer lead. Enjoy!

Comments: "Tod recommends camping south of the DH campground along Rampart Range Rd."

That is spot on!

Comments: Instead of bushwhacking through the descent gully, you can easily 5th class traverse just above the gully. Probably not any faster, but waaaaay more fun.

Comments: I just got word from the Park that the seasonal closures for the Park View Dome and the Ranch Hand dome have been lifted, but climbers are urged to report any raptor activity.

Comments: Simply amazing line, my new favorite Freemont face climb! If you are planning on leading the route, rap from the anchor on top of storming intrepid since it deposits you at the same belay without having to swing around or clip any directionals. This will also keep your fixed line out of your way while leading out. Some of the bolts are getting quite rusted on this guy.

Comments: If you are planning on leading this route, it is possible to rap power behind the throne and swing over (climbers right) to the bolted stance on Heroes. By doing this, your fixed line is out of the way the entire time your leading out. On another note, this excellent route could really use some new hardware.

Comments: I think a 70m would make it, but it would be pretty challenging to get back to that anchor at the bottom of P4, since the pitches wander to the right through fairly steep terrain. The easiest descent from P5 is to rap to the intermediate anchor in the middle of Playin' Hooky.

Comments: Definitely agree with Jay. This route description should be nothing more than a comment on the Old Man and the Sea page. It's not only a duplicate, it is also a huge inflation of the grade.

Comments: This is a great route that is really sustained. I personally thought this was harder than Tiger's Woody, but maybe it's the technical subtleties that make it feel harder. Like Mike said, when I first tried the route, it felt like 13a, but once I unlocked some key beta, it felt slightly easier. Thanks for the route!

Comments: Hey Tyson,

The list of closures seems large, but the majority of developed climbs are unaffected and closures will generally be lifted by August 1st. The only full blanket closure is in the Sawmill Crags, and that is partly for the raptors but also for other sensitive resources such as Telesonix and Monkey Flower. A development plan is in the works for that area that aims to protect sensitive resources and allow climbing where possible.

Since Staunton is a young, understaffed park, blanket ... more >>

Comments: This is a fine addition to Creekside and shouldn't be missed! The rock under the roof on P3 is slightly crumbly but will clean up quickly with traffic. With the proper armory, it is possible to link P3 and 4 for an arm numbing lead. Just as good as Solid Gold but with a sweet roof and headwall!

Comments: Another awesome route on The Post Office. I thought the crux was holding on to dink in the gear above the first bolt (and holding on afterwards). For a little more beta: follow the bolts up to a sloping ledge system. Foot traverse right across the ledge and continue up a crack that leads left into horizontals. Finish left on the anchor for Powder Monkey.

Comments: This route is not to be missed! Thanks for the sanity bolts and the independent anchor, guys. I found a single rack of a few medium stoppers, and cams from #0.4-#2 to be sufficient.

Comments: That flake was gone when we climbed it in August. Definitely felt 11c getting through that section.
