Comments: Nice spot with some nice, little routes.

Jess, I see you aren't taking credit for the steep line with the multiple drilled pockets and spray-paint splotches over the bolt hangers…anybody want to own up to that one?

I try to keep an open mind about stuff, but this one strikes me as Not Okay.

Comments: 2 things:

New leaders already have a way to practice climbing cracks…it's called a toprope. Easy to arrange on a 50' crag with bolted anchors. Dumbing down the art of crack climbing isn't doing anyone any favors, in my opinion.

And to Mr. Hanger Remover: if you're trying to make some kind of ethical statement, you have to remove the bolts and fill the holes. Otherwise you're just a lowlife, lazy thief.

Comments: OK, exhumed the old guidebook. Dean and I did this in February 1997. Avoiding the weekend crowds, hence the name. One star.

Comments: A tiny but exciting topout option on the *bonus pitches*:

After the first two 'out-of-character' up & right junk pitches, one arrives on a big ledge hunting for a 5.9 corner on the mini-headwall. Instead of the 5.9 corner, walk right on the big ledge about 40' past the juniper tree to find a squarish wall of immaculate and well-featured brown stone. Climb a 30' left-leaning, thin crack with just enough pro to keep you going. 5.10 and slightly steep. After this, continue up ledgy/wandery junk... more >>

Comments: For some reason, my much stronger climbing buddies stayed off this one on the sharp end, allowing me to make the first actual lead. Thanks, fellas!

Comments: I liked 'Walk of Shame', but that's a lot of name for a 20-foot variation.
