Comments: I'm not claiming an FA; simply saying I don't know who did. I'm just rounding out the DataBase for the next folks to enjoy it.

Comments: I left my chalk bag lanyard and a 'biner on the anchor last year. You may want to leave a new runner.

Comments: Likely the same route we did in April, we called it ABC (Already Been Climbed), start 50ft right of trail junction on Hemingway Wall. See photo. P1 was 100 feet. P2 sounded about the same: walked left and up a trough ~220' without moving belay. P3 we went up a little and then traversed left ~90 feet to some anchors and rap'd. Std rack and thought it was about 5.6.

If this isn't the same route, let me know and I'll write it up separately.

Comments: i think i belayed on that feature at the top of this pitch and decided it looked like a spine too! Nothing in the MP description mentions climbing it; you'd have to traverse a long way right to actually climb it as a pitch, wouldn't you?

Comments: This climber is at the top anchor of Webster-Ellis, 5.6 (a 1 pitch climb to the right). As a second pitch from the W-E anchor, you can zig-zag clip the last 2 bolts and cut left to the so-so anchor at the top of QYB.

Comments: THIS IS BACK TO 4 BOLTS. It took a while to find them, but we replaced the 2nd and 4th bolts (within 6" of the originals) yesterday.

This doesn't make it less likely you could fall, but the 1st, 2nd, and 4th bolts will now definitely hold you. (That 3rd bolt is a Rawl buttonhead with a Leeper hanger which [seems] ok now.) This doesn't make it safe by modern sport standards. (Remember, this is a route put up by old masters: they got to where they were AND had a good stance that allowe... more >>

Comments: Alec must have missed the classic 3 1/4" bolts-in-a-line anchor that services both this (and the X rated Unhead). After the last bolt, this classic anchor is a fair bit to the left in a scallop.

Rob, since I seem to own this climb, based on ticks, I'll offer the advice that I start all three of these right-most climbs off the big, crumbly, within-20-degree flat boulder at the base. I traverse in left to right so I've got the slab mojo going by the time I hit that first bolt. FWIW, the first... more >>

Comments: never did find a contour trail, which would've been nice. It was quicker than looking to just go to the middle of Ridgeline Wall, duck under the logs and go down the eroded gully. Curl left when you see the bolts.

Comments: Hard to believe this area wasn't in the Squeezing the Lemmon book. Easy to see it from lots of places on the road, once you recognize it. Directions are pretty good BUT, there's a gate at the top of the Organization Ridge Road (right by the Boy Scout Camp gate) which is apparently closed in the winter, so be prepared to walk down the dirt road for a ways before finding that well-cairned trail off left.

Comments: Can an administrator change the route name? It is called Dave Bell Memorial, 5.9, in the latest book.
Thanks!

Comments: So, after reviewing all that, this is called Lookatdat in the new book, route 10. Can an administrator change the name from Unknown now?

Comments: THIS IS NOW A 2 BOLT CLIMB!

My buddy led this today and the 2nd bolt broke off from the weight of swinging rope after he'd clipped the 3rd bolt! (No falls, weighting, or stress.) It was another Rawl 1/4" button-head with a Leeper hanger. So, I'd say all these vintage bolts are HIGHLY suspect on this dome, at least. The first bolt is bigger with an SMC hanger which seems fine, but the 3 anchor bolts are similar size, age, and though nuts seem tight they all spin.

Be warned.

Comments: This climb can be further identified by virtue of climbing in black rock the whole way; trending slightly left on fins, jugs, and alligator skin. You can see the anchors from the base. Lotta fun!

Comments: Phil Persson led up the 3 intermittent cracks to the right of this, perhaps 15 feet right of the bolt on Coleman's, at 5.8? Then the 2nd pitch of Solar, then picked our own adventure up the head wall above the largest tree. All good.

Comments: This shot should maybe be removed since climber is obviously on the Old Roof Route, aka Lemons, Limes & Tangerines. (The actual route for this climb is on the slightly out of focus wall behind him.)

The topo photo has it right.

This is a very interesting climb.

Comments: Wow. I truely sucked on this 10d, but I usually don't have problems on 10c. This took me over an hour and maybe 10 "takes" (wimpy falls). Don't under-estimate this. It looked easy. (I wasn't willing to take a real ripper off the impressively sharp crystals my finger were on at any point.) Very humbling, but technically cool moves.

Comments: Well, I did just two routes in a day and it was awesome! Too late for me, but is there an "insiders" route rap? Thought I was doing pretty well until I stuck a rope which pushed things back a bit. It certainly was possible with twin 50's, but it wasn't slick. Suggestions other than walking down? Where was the route y'all did with the fixed line(s)?

Comments: We did a few routes there a week ago; they may have added a few more shower heads this year? Struck me that there are now maybe 7? (wish I'd counted them.) If you were at/near the South end, perhaps it was Master's Degree or Organic Chemistry? All are about the same length and difficulty. Research is now near the middle (judging by the map). As you say, hard to tell. Were there any tree branches jutting out about 15 from the top?
