Comments: 80m rope barely makes it down to the top of the blocks. Fun route! Finger gear at the top can save you some weight instead of protecting in the wide. Numerous 3 Camalots.

Comments: I think some confusion may stem from DF's language (shocker, I know). If you're walking from the parking lot toward the back of Donnelly Canyon, you're walking up canyon.

Comments: "Start on Sacherer Cracker, but keep climbing until you get to a big tree on the top."

Pretty much the best beta ever.

Nice work, y'all!

Comments: Having challenges as well with that topo on here. PM me if you want one and I'll send a .pdf.


So thinking that the route name was kinda on the hippy-dippy side I proposed 'The Gift of Water' but Ned vetoed it. Swirly diorite mixed with El Cap golden granite + flying water droplets = not-so-random grabbable gifts to rock scalers:

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 hangersÂ…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 cracksÂ…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: 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 >>
