This is what the start of the route looks like. Start on the left, traverse out right.

Comments: There is a bolted anchor with rap rings that we used for this climb that are just higher and to the right of the anchor used for Rodan and UTSCTB.

Comments: Key hold above the first roof next to the 2nd bolt is loose and shifting. If ethically valid, some glue would likely save this block from pulling.

Comments: If you are only planning on doing one big climb on this wall, it just might make more sense to pack/rack up everything you need at the parking lot. Forgoing the need to return to the base of the head wall.

Comments: Avoid shirking to the left after sticking the big reach. Stay confident and finish this classic directly for maximum satisfaction!

Comments: Feeling Hollow from leading this route too many times?

Try climbing to the right of the bolts, clipping them all with your left hand.
Fun variation that warrants about the same grade (especially if you use footholds on the wall to the right at the start)

Comments: Nice alpine setting. Generally clear, flat landings. Intro/warm up boulder for LCC slab. Approximately 2-3 body lengths tall.

Comments: Very fun climbing. So many gear options with several nice stances for placement. I always have to remember to save my #1 to place in the left hand crack just after the final traverse below the second tree. I once had a very tense moment trying to jam my last and obviously overcammed #2 in that crack during one of my first trad leads.

Comments: This climbs a lot like a trad line at the bottom. Watch for tendency to z-clip at the bulge.(bolts 7-8). Fun,sunny,warm up.

Comments: The three center lines on this wall are all business between the last bolt and the chains. Be ready to fight for the finish or prepare for heartbreak!

Comments: There is currently a bit of tat and some rap rings at the top of the first pitch. It is located on top of the great chockstone proper, look just above it and on the up canyon (Eastside) for a small tatted chockstone. I would recommend backing and equalizing it up if using it as a belay anchor.

Fun stuff.

Comments: To orient yourself at this crag:

When approaching the hillside, the formation known as, 'Embryology Rock' is distinctively darker then the rest of the rocks in this area. Embryology rock formation has the climbs: Fiesta at Elmo's, Super Groover, and Embryology crack (and others I haven't climbed)

Then look slightly to the East scanning for a rock wall featuring a small roof midway up with white stainy streak to its left and you'll be looking at Missy's Playhouse and Septic Death area.

Comments: Be sure to get full value by doing the second pitch! For me, p2 didn't end up needing anything larger then a .5 BD. (well my first piece was a #13 stopper). If you exit out to the flakes on the left at the top, you will have to do a little bushwacking back to the east to get to the chains at the top of lowe blow.
