Comments: There is rock all over the place but I wouldn't call it a climbing destination. These photos are between Blantyre and Mulanji. To be clear, I know nothing about the climbing here.

Comments: Get ready to dig in for the crux clip at the 2nd or 3rd bolt (has a fixed draw this summer).

Comments: From another site:
"Check out Sweet Jeebus, at the first Narrow, where the old 5.12 w/ fixed pins is. It has a small cave at the base of the wall. Sweet Jeebus is far left on the wall. This is probably the best sport route I have drilled. I would like a conformation on the grade."

Comments: Hey James, what's the deal with this limestone. It looks like a crushed conglomerate or something. Cool the way those pockets are lined with the crystals. I didn't climb this but wonder how much its cleaned up.

Comments: "Find your way to Main Street and turn left, heading west until you see the rec sign for North and South Willow Canyons. "

When you get to Main Street, West is going right. The street with the rec signs is actually called 'West Street'. When you come back through on your way to 15 you'll have lots of dust in your eyes and it'll be less obvious but look for Kearl Street.

Comments: For several years, I've been tempted to want to add a line on the crazy, almost random edges between Specter and Apparition. Its fun to try and wrap my head around the small edges on vertical stone through the little overlap just right of Apparition's crux. However, a good friend helped me realize its a nice TR that doesn't need bolting. The line is probably mid .12 and likes cooler temps.

Comments: This is a nice route to work for breaking into the grade. First crux teaches you to hike your feet and lean into your hands. The second is techie and if you boulder goes quick. The third and fourth really are endurancey redpoint cruxes.

Warm up on those weird routes right after you cross the creek because the .11's at this crag are unpleasant.

Comments: I thought this was really fun and will do it again. Cool, techie moves in the middle, then a nice lock-off clip, loads of dynamic movement and pawing around topout. Super fun line.

Comments: Great moves on good stone. The cool parts about climbs like this is you get great stances from which to figure the moves out. Be ready to climb all the way through the chains.

We were just there on 2/6/14 and thought the cool old hangers were really bomber and the bolts were just fine. But then, what do we know anyway.

Comments: I've gotten feedback that this is probably straight .12c. Its got an extra V4 crux before joining Early Bird but is way shorter.

Comments: I've gotten more feedback since this is cleaned and up its is probably .10d or .11a. Personally, I think this is easier and far, far less sustained than Tick Fever.

Comments: I've been told by several friends this might be .12c? I have no idea how to rate stuff because I often have to siege the stew out of it before I actually send. All I know is that its a heads up line with great rests between fun cruxes that keep coming after you. This is a great mid to late day winter route during high pressure systems and a great evening route in spring and fall.

I know a lot of people have gotten on it but don't know it its had a third ascent after Mike and I did it. If yo... more >>

Comments: Actually, the Forest Service spent over a month her this summer ('13), removing all the signs they could find of human impact. The elderly couples who serve as campground hosts for the commercial vendor decided they didn't like picking up the trash that was everywhere. The FS couldn't pay to keep it clean either so they decided to rip it out. It was a lot cleaner this summer so we'll see how it goes in the future.

Cool looking lines up there.

Comments: I'd forgotten about that funky crossover but had to do it that way too! Kinda cool body tension to make it happen. I resisted it and climbed up and down several times till I just gave in and did it. Then the fingers are just so locker.
