Comments: It's cool that these are bolted into real routes now. I remember doing these in the early 1980s. John Duran and friends had done a bunch of climbing on this wall previous to taking me there. It's funny how having bolts to follow somehow makes the climbing better. We used to just look for the cleanest line and avoid making climbing into easy territory. Of course, we were into big runouts at that time, so no bolts was a plus.

Comments: When John Duran and I did the FA, we started by surmounting the choss roof, just off the ground, with a hard move onto a clean, unprotected face. No need to go to the bolt, which is some other contrivance. Go instead through a bush on the right, then make a slab move to gain the bottom of the crack. We used to belay right there, but I'll bet you could do it from the ground. If it had a convenient lowering anchor, it might make it more popular, as it should be. Maybe some bolts on that low fa... more >>

Comments: 'Bout time someone made this into a legit route. Maybe y'all should add another bolt or two, get rid of that pesky "R" thing. People would do it. Just sayin'.
Peace.
