Comments: This could probably be listed as a sport climb, and not a trad climb..
It is protected by bolts only so all you need is quick draws and the bolts and close enough to probably not be considered dangerous or run out. There is a bolted anchor on top as well..

Comments: there ARE anchors on top;...original anchors from FA:.....there are no bolders on top..the top is small;....must be confusing summit with another. There are quick links on top.

Comments: i love this climb....i am really surprised that is isn't more popular. It really is a mega-cool route. Maybe someday it will get the respect and love that is so richly deserves. (good job, Jim Dover, on the lead....)..

Comments: Someone has dropped a large rock/ chockstone down this offwidth, probably making it easier at the crux IF you use this rock jammed in the crack. The rock wiggles around a bit when you use it (if you choose to do so), but....this being said;..the climb is still at least 5.10b. It's a cool and challenging climb either with or without the chockstone.

Comments: In the T. Goss guidebook and Misty's Limestone Bible, this route is called "Office Party". It is the 2nd route from the right on the wall. The furthest right route (in the Goss book) is called Mystery Companion (5.10a...although I though it was a bit harder than 5.10a). In Misty Murphy's Limestone Bible, she has Office Party correctly, but does not have the Mystery Companion route listed. That being said,....the route is super cool and the whole area is fantastic. The route is not Grade V..... more >>

Comments: i have climbed here as well. Yeah, there is loose stuff, but if you are careful, you can have a blast here. The climbing is ususual, as you are climbing on limestone that has ocean creature fossils embedded into the rock. Some of the climbing is "sporty" for sport climbing....so lead or top rope or do whatever you feel comfortable with. The climbing is steep, pretty fun, a bit heads up, and the scenery is top shelf. Overall, ....we had a great day of cragging!....but you do have to be caref... more >>

Comments: This route (AKA Nightmare on Angione Street ) needs some love;....i need to take a look at it and see what it needs to be safe and sane for the lead. It is a route that does has some merit....

Comments: those 1/4" button heads with the rivet hangers is B.S. They are gone and "real" bolts with hangers are now in place. The climb is about 5.7 ..and it has 3 bolts with a bolted anchor on top....Don't know the name or FA info...

Comments: The "rivet" that fell out has been replace by a new beefy 3/8 inch bolt. Now at least the first bolt to get you started on the bolt ladder is solid and sound.

Comments: Did this climb again today;..it's a very good climb;..don't know why everyone ignores it and walks past;...it's way worth a spin. Quick draws for bolts plus a 1"to 1 1/2 inch cam placement at a horizontal. I believe there are 5 bolts too.
