Comments: I didn't have Bob's brilliant topo when I went, so I drew all these sections with complex topos, counted bolts, measured pitches and later figured out which climbs were which when I got home. (Duh!) I doubt it helps much, but it would have organized me quite a bit figuring out which routes were what when I was there. I used it to make some photo topos that I posted of the routes I did. If this takes out the mystery, I'll delete it

Comments: IMHO, I'd call this area the 2nd wall you see, (Panel III, L-R) between Central Crack and the Flake Route.
(The very first thing you see when you drive in I'd call Panel IV, with the 3 rising traverse cracks.)

Comments: From the top of P1, you can do a very reasonable 2nd trad pitch, up left to the Zebra anchors, 5.6.

I placed BD 4, 5 & 6 Stoppers and #0.4 & 1 Camalots (YMMV). With effort, I may have placed more small stuff. The angle is less than vertical, and the holds are excellent.

Comments: Someone added 2 bolts on this climb too.
Don't they know that retrobolting isn't cool?

Comments: Someone retrobolted this bit and put an anchor where you'd expect one so you won't have to risk this.

Comments: Someone has recently (2016) added bolts and an anchor, so that last bolt and this rising traverse are no longer necessary.

Comments: I think it's more of a point-of-view/foreshortening error, since I put the X on the bolt.

Comments: A 70 meter rope will BARELY get you back to the start of the pitch. Plan on 3 raps.

Comments: You won't see this sign from the parking lot, but you can see a Wichita Wall sign.
(This one is 30 seconds up the trail.)

Comments: Since this WAS originally all trad, I only showed the bolts at the lower optional anchor.
(If you blow up the photo, you can see others.)

Comments: Considerably foreshortened in photo. If you look real hard, you can find
3 or 4 bolts on either route in the photo.

Comments: Rope is still clipped into Notches on right.

On higher magnification, you can see some of the bolts on Corner Route, just to the left, which finishes at the the same chain anchors.

Comments: How sure are you THIS is Report Card? I thought RC was the anchor/route with the tree next to the railing that is 2 showerheads right of this. (I think this is Kindergarten.)

Comments: No pin that I could see. Optional pro might be a 0.4 and a #2 Camalot to shorten the higher runouts?

Comments: How did you get off if you only did the first pitch? Is there a bolt anchor where we used to use pro in the horizontal?
