Comments: Really bad rock compared with most of the other routes on this wall!

Comments: Looks like the beta is to fix a length of knotted rope to your ankle and bite your way up it with your teeth.

That is some impressive hip articulation....

Comments: "May be the best warm up route on the Wall of The '90s" - Ha! This description is such a self-deprecating "quality sandbag." This is a brilliant climb--one of those rare lines whose easiness does not detract from the experience in any way. The only thing that makes it a "warm up" is that the bolts are quite far apart on the easiest sections, sometimes over ledgy terrain.

Comments: Just climbed here (and CCC) for the first time. Great little crag! What's the deal with the heavy truck traffic? We were here for only an hour or two, in the middle of the day on a Thursday, and the number of trucks seemed to dwindle over that time?

Comments: First bolt above the roof is surprisingly far from previous one (out of character with the rest of the route and the rest of the crag), but the climbing is very easy. A fun line, absolutely worth doing, but there are better options if you want gym-like bolt spacing.

Comments: Note--*you* pass on the right side of Crack of Noon Buttress. The buttress will be on your *left*. Match what you see with the mountainproject pic and you'll do fine.

There's an amazingly clear, rock-bordered foot path from the top corner of the pullout. It is heading southwest as described, though I'd have sworn it was northwest. Somebody put a lot of love into this trail--kudos.

Came here to help a friend fulfill his 35th birthday challenge--35 bolts (not counting anchors) in 35 minutes. The... more >>
