Comments: Hello,
I climbed here in the late 70's, early 80's and did a route on the very left side of the cliff, where the cliff turns back into the woods. Maybe right at the descent on that side. It may be just right of route #32 mentioned here on the Small Cliff or maybe on the left face of the Main Cliff. I remember climbing up about 1/2 the height of the cliff and getting 2 decent nut placements in a horizontal crack. Nothing from there to the top. A bunch of us tried and some took long whip... more >>

Comments: How did she navigate the zig-zag? Very well done! Leaning into the turn I guess is the key...

Comments: Thanks for the tip KP! Been awhile (obviously) since I've looked here. And now probably have no chance at this route :) . But next time out I'll give it a go! Cheers! Paul

Comments: Hi Mike,

Been 4 times now to Bowman Valley and really love it there. Great rock, routes, and very peaceful. There are prominent NO TRESPASSING signs going into Larry Land. Is it ok to climb there? Thanks!

Comments: Repeated this route now 8 years later and either the route got harder or I got older. Pretty tough moves getting up the section under the roof. Couldn't be a better place for the hidden holds! Lots of good moves all the way to the top!

Comments: Finally got to try this route last Saturday. Thought it was supposed to be 5.9 (poor memory) and found the moves to the second bolt quite hard. All moves seemed hard! Definitely rest spots but pretty sustained climbing. Didn't make the last moves, arms too fried, but all in all a pretty good route! Love the ending traversing up and right on the thin "rail" holds to the crack. Very nice place to be! A few more ascents would help clean up a bit of lichen "crusting" and then this would be o... more >>

By: Paul Rezucha When: Feb 6, 2011

Comments: A good way to do this climb is to move left about 7' after you are standing after the initial jamming cracks. Move left and finish on the right-most crack. Good gear and fun moves takes you to the top. This is one of the variations of Beginner's Crack but makes the Candy Cane Boulder into a full fun climb.

Comments: Drastical doesn't look like much from the ground but it is actually a very fun climb with many good moves and fun gear placements! I placed a tiny brass nut in the initial thin crack that might have kept me off the ground getting the first really good piece in in the little vertical crack right of the main upper crack. You have good hand holds with smears for feet but you can comfortably place this piece. Once you stand at the base of the upper crack you can get several great placements before... more >>

Comments: Yes,what is this? A lake or a puddle? Very difficult to figure out! Oh wait... The rippled wall is above the water and water is running down. It looked like the water was above and overflowing down the dam-like looking rock. Cool shot!

Comments: Route looks nice but I hope that all those horizontals and vertical seams are all closed off and can't take gear. Certainly up above the big crack looks like it would take gear...

Comments: It was a long time ago but I still remember it like it was yesterday...

Looking down I could hear Ivan working the moves under the roof and heard a slap and saw a puff of chalk float out, then saw the fingers inching out and onto the horizontal. A big swing of the feet, desperation in the eyes, some real struggling, and he made it.

After Ivan got to the belay, he asked me if I gave him any tension. (I didn't as I knew he would want to do it clean).

I said "No".

He said, "You bastard!"... more >>

Comments: Bruce, (or anyone in the know) in case you see this... I attempted going straight up from the ground last weekend and managed a move or two past the first bolt but was hesitant to commit reaching the second bolt. Is the ramp on the left used at all to step to or is the ramp completely off limits? I gather clipping the second bolt is where you describe a potential ground fall... thanks!

Comments: Happy Face was a great climb! Much longer than it looked with lots of continuous thought provoking climbing. I placed 2 small cams and a Metolius Astro brass nut as the highest piece in the initial crack which sowed up the starting sequence moves very nicely. Getting past the sloping mantle took some figuring out and the upper section didn't let up much. I did go straight up from the last bolt and the moves were very thin with feet a little above the bolt. Being in a somewhat sideways posit... more >>
