Comments: this is a superb route that is very well protected. the start looks like it is going to be hard as hell, but the feet somehow work out perfectly. really nice job on this one richard.

Comments: this is a really good route on neat rock. having the draw hung at the last bolt is a great help, otherwise it is a strenuous clip. good work on this one richard, it is perfect for a summer morning.

Comments: David's rap beta is on target. When we rapped this thing, it felt like we were down-aiding El Cap or something. If you don't plan ahead a bit, you could end up in a situation here....

Comments: Must be pretty brutal, knowing how Ben can weld his giant paws onto some awful holds. Yikes!

Comments: The routes on this little section tend to seep for quite a while after wet weather, and that wet fluffy lichen is super slippery.

Comments: i actually think this one feels harder than red hot chili peppers. tough to generate upward thrust on such slippery holds.

Comments: hard start, leads into good and pumpy climbing to a monster move(s) crux. another superb route on this wall. very hard for the 11d given on MP. i thought this was maybe the hardest of the 12a's on the wall.

Comments: this is a superb route with pumpy climbing leading to a pretty brutal mono move. excellent stone and perfect protection.

Comments: great warmup, seemed accurate at the 11b grading in the book. really nice moves on good pockets will help warm up your fingers for the surrounding routes.

Comments: this is a really good short route on excellent rock. several ways to do the crux, none of which are easy. be prepared to yank a mono down to your shins.

Comments: brutal finger wrecking start. not the best warmup, but good route. can also be seepy in wet weather. start is really hard when wet.

Comments: good warmup, although start is kind of in your face. can be seepy during wet weather.

Comments: When I climbed this in the late '90s, the rock quality was pretty rough. I placed what looked like a good piece in the lower flake. Luckily I decided to back it up with another piece below it (maybe blue TCU or so). I started underclinging/laying back up the flake, and a chunk of the flake broke off in my hand. The top piece blew out a pretty good chunk of the flake. I was glad I placed the second piece, as the ground was really rough and I would have eaten a serious shit-burger.

Kinda curious ... more >>

Comments: i just flew over this area the other day, without knowing what it was. it looked pretty good, and definitely big, so i tried to find any sort of reference points, but the best thing i could find was an 'arrow' shaped salt flat.... jumped on google earth when i got home and after some trial and error i was able to figure out where it was.

it looks like it is off the south flank of toiyabe range peak (39d 04' 15" N, 117d 12' 50" W). just take 376 south a short ways from the megalopolis of king... more >>

Comments: fun route, would be fairly popular if it were at a busier wall.

Comments: this is kind of a cool little route - good chance to plug in some smaller pieces at an easy grade.

Comments: i remember this one being harder than it looks, and there is almost a series of plate like sections of the crack where gear might not be as good as it looks.

Comments: Ha ha, in Richard's defense, I have been up there quite a few times, and I don't think I have ever gone the same way twice. Some ways suck, and some are even worse!

Comments: really fun route. i wish there were a lot more like this one - fun fingers with good feet. allows you to get on a finger crack at a reasonable grade.

Comments: second pitch is also really good. IIRC off-fingers/thin hands to good hands and back down. upper headwall crack on the first pitch is definitely more strenuous than it looks, big hands with sometimes awkard feet. great route overall.
