Comments: Great well protected steep and pumpy pitch, but never desperate. Worth doing with Tequila Mockingbird.

Comments: Super awesome well protected pitch. No move is super hard, it is just steep and pumpy. I also highly recommend the direct variation to the left - also well protected, and worth doing on its own.

Comments: Try the direct 5.10 start. Makes for a more aesthetic line, and is well protected, with really only one hard move.

Comments: Nice long sustained pitch of face climbing. The steep exposed start looks improbable, but moderate holds and good gear appear. Bring extra small gear.

Comments: Yes, I would agree. Begin this route from the ground just before the trail heads uphill to the climbs to the right. Makes it a full length more aesthetic line and a quality pitch. The roof looks harder than it is and protects very well. Then the upper climbing is really fun.

Comments: Every time I've been here it's been dry. This is a terrific little cliff with a high concentration of clean fun moderate crack climbs next to each other. Several of the routes with fewer stars are also very good and well worth doing. Very comfortable and pleasant at the base as well.

Comments: This is an awesome pitch. I seem to recall placing a grey alien somewhere too, but I don't think it was mandatory. I was just kind of gripped because I was leading it in my friends shoes that were a size and a half too big because I forgot mine! Would like to go back and climb it with some proper edging shoes!

Comments: Awesome splitter hand crack. Full value 5.9. I think if the 5.9 leader cruises this they are ready for 5.10's. You can sew it up so get on it!

Comments: Really nice route. Short bushwacking. Watch for wasps nest on the route sometimes. Makes a nice warm up for climbing some of the harder routes across the street.

Comments: Yeah I don't know. Maybe I was off route, or it was particularly overgrown when I climbed it. I remember several of the gear placements I had to dig moss out with a nut tool. I guess I'm being outnumbered here so will have to go back and climb it again - perhaps I will reconsider!

Comments: This is a gem of a little pitch. Great on your way out when you want just a little more climbing. Awesome finger crack. Great gear everywhere.

Comments: This climb has changed character a bit since the rockfall, and in my opinion is less enjoyable and aesthetic, but the lower crack/ face moves are still cool. The new post rockfall corner felt a bit run-out to me, and might benefit from a bolt. Did anyone else have a similar experience?

Comments: Beautiful, well protected finger crack with great position, on great rock!!! I think one of the better finger cracks in the park.

Comments: This route is a real M-F'er!!! Tricky and strenuous to place gear! If you are feeling overly confident after climbing some of the other 10's on the cliff, go over and get on this for some self-flagellation!!!

Comments: Really cool, interesting pitch. So much better than it looks from the ground. The offwidth is fun too, and really adds to the character of the climb. Beware of taking a potentially dangerous pendulum fall onto a ledge at the crux, past the bolt.

Comments: Fantastic but short pitch! Don't let the lack of stars in the guidebook deter you. Also was just up there recently and someone replaced the old spinner bolt with a fat new one.

Comments: Great crack climbing! I would say old school 5.8! Definitely worth doing, along with Star Sailor to the left.

Comments: This route is nothing special in my opinion, compared to some of the other routes at Poke-O. Very dirty and vegetated when I climbed it. Unlike the typical Poke-O route that might look dirty from below and then has incredible clean climbing once you get on it, this one was actually dirty! Also remember the gear being sketchy, but maybe that's because I was digging moss out of the cracks in order to place gear. I plan to go back to this route and dump a few gallons of agent orange down it. Is tha... more >>

Comments: Did a hold or two break on this? Re-climbed it the other day and it felt quite a bit harder (and less enjoyable) than it did a few years back. And the person I was climbing with who had just onsighted a hard 5.11 had to hang on it....

Comments: One of my favorite routes at the gunks. Opposed RP's on the first horizontal may keep you off the ground.....

Comments: One of my favorite routes at the gunks. Impeccable rock quality. Very well protected - you can sew this route up if you want. A gold camalot clipped short protects the first move. Regarding the grade controvery on this route, if you pull the "tricky move" the right way, it feels easy - like 5.7. If you do it the hard way, it feels like 5.9 in my opinion.

Comments: Direct start is fun climbing, but definitely very heady lead. I think an RP helped the situation....at least psychologically.

Comments: I've always gone straight up at the last bolt. It is a really fun, exposed move, that doesn't seem contrived to me since it is more direct. Its well protected assuming that old bolt is good.....
