Comments: tricky for 5.9. can finish up to top of freestanding pillar via moderate cracks on left (watch for loose rock and bring webbing to sling summit boulder)

Comments: Note that Marty's foldout has many of the climbs north and west of the waterfall mixed up. "Graphics Bong" and "Missionaries Eat Cannibals Too" are actually the same climb.

Comments: Watch for bees at the top. It looks like there is a hive maybe 20-30 feet from the anchors, and I had a few scouts come check me out the other day. And, no chains, just 3 bolts with webbing.

Comments: A 70m rope is very helpful out here, as it saves bringing 2 ropes on many climbs, specifically: Just Say Yo, Smokin the Toad, Ain't Nothing But a Thing, Loose Roof, Easy Street, Dacite Conspiracy, Right On, etc.

Comments: Great line! Suffers a bit from unnecessary bolts, but a fun and different climb for the area.

Comments: This climb felt on the hard side of 10. I was completely stumped by the move above the 3rd bolt to enter the flare!

Comments: Much appreciated Sun2Stone! This wall has been needing a make-over for a while now. At some point it would be prudent for someone to replace the aging protection bolts on these climbs as well.

Comments: This climb is pretty intimidating from the base - steep enduro climbing with widely spaced bolts. Classic for sure.

Comments: This is a terrific line, though the old bolts and flaky rock make it pretty attention-grabbing. Sustained climbing from start to finish.

Comments: Excellent climb, just gets steeper and steeper. Probably best to do as one long enduro pitch.

Comments: The exploration is half (or more) of the fun! Anyone who wants to find this place will figure it out after a few trips.

Comments: There is a stuck blue 0.3 camalot in the opening roof with the trigger wires clipped. Been there for over a month, and looks like it will require thermite to get it out!

Comments: I highly doubt the bolts have been upgraded on this route. I have seen upgraded rappel anchors in the McDowell's on popular walls, but I'm guessing that nearly all of the protection bolts are 20+ years old based on my experiences.

Comments: This climb is way fun, pretty different from most Iso climbs - excellent pocket pulling

Comments: This climb is a terrific finish after doing Great Race - incredible exposure and committing moves! Very memorable. Length is ~110', though I'm guessing you could make it back to the Remission anchors with a single 60m rope + stretch.

The bolts/webbing are at the green dot. I usually bail here rather than continuing to the top.

Comments: bring a knife and some new webbing if planning to rap from the top of P3 (ledge above roof). Forgot both, and could barely fit a carabiner through the hangers due to all the old slings.

Comments: good, spicy fun. pretty sustained. the anchor needs another bolt - right now there is one bolt and a fixed rope tied to a mangled tree.

also, the route is only 115', we were just able to get down with a single 70m rope
