Comments: nothing more than the recommended gear list;.....some quick draws for the bolts, a few RURPS, beaks, and copperheads..then stoppers and TCUs.....it's very safe with the chicken bolts.....and one hook for the opening move.

Comments: Originally done with no bolts. (Gerberding/bartlett/reid ?)
Bolted up not knowing it was originally done without bolts. (by myself and friends.)
Chopped.
Re-established with bolts in different places. (unknown who re-established route)
Hangers spray-painted after they were installed...(a bit messy...)..

Comments: Loose, dangerous, chossy and not very relaxing route to climb;...but still fun in a sic/twisted way;.....we liked it. Another grand sandstone summit. Rope landed in a cacti on the last rap. One of the bolts at the last rap is sticking out a little bit;...it's still bomber.

Comments: This route seemed harder than 5.10a.....more like 5.10b;....and the rock is somewhat grainy and there is some distance between the bolts. With traffic and maybe a bit of brushing, the route would be fine;...but still heads up. There is a bolted anchor on top of this climb, which also can be shared with the climb Ren, which is a cool climb....until the top when Ren gets all grainy too!

Comments: Demon Deacons (5.7)*
Located on the far left (east) edge of the summit boulders (The highest climbable cliff as seem from the parking lot). Climb up the face past four bolts to a two bolt anchor.

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: 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.
