Comments: Those anchors don't last long up there. Not sure if someone is pulling them to preserve the Highball, V0.

Comments: Bolts are gone. Not too bad setting up anchor with small-medium cams, tri-cams, sling a horn. Be sure your lockers are below the edge, because the crack will want to eat your rope otherwise.

Note that this crack is now being used by "highball boulderers" who seem to be comfortable pushing your rope out of the way and climbing beside you while you're on the route.

Aside from that, it's still a great place to bring the kids. My 6 year old topped out for the first time on this the other day.

Comments: I think some parts broke off. I climbed it two years ago and it was a solid < 5.5. Now it seems like some hands and feet are missing. There are obvious scars.
