Comments: You may find yourself onsiting 375 ft. of this route only to end up pumped and pulling on gear to finish the last five...not that that happened to me or anything. Bring 4 (0.75 for the last pitch), 2 would require serious bumping and backcleaning (I know). A small gray C4 will fit perfect on the crux of the "bouldery" second pitch, you'll figure it out.

If you really had to, you could do it with a single 70 BUT you'd have to... more >>

Comments: Fun route, no move is any easier than anything on Scarface IMHO. Pulling the bulge isn't too bad it's really the sand that makes it a pain. There's also a free Green C4 that I (the rope) walked way way (like 16 inches) into the crack.

Comments: Fantastic!! The start is a little heady for people breaking into the grade or maybe it's just the fall potential. I blew a piece about 20 feet up and ended up falling on a 0 TCU (holding thankfully). Some helpful beta: I thought the lower portion of the finger crack protected way better with nuts it wasn't until halfway up where I was into cam territory. Also if you are a noob like me, bring lots of .5's. I couldn't really find many places to place a .75 until the top. Now go out and do it.

Comments: Amazing route (enough said). Definitely some spice here and there but nothing that can't be backed up with a solid nut or cam placement. Scariest part for me was doing the second angled traverse to the ow type crack, the holds here ran out and its a relatively big move. Also the nut here (which I assume someone fell on) was removed. I used the #4 but it really isn't protecting anything too scary so if your more confident than an amateur like me you can definitely leave it at home.

Comments: Absolutely not (I'm sure hundreds of people have climbed it)...I just decided to give the crack a name for the sake of the website and logistical purposes.

Comments: I decided to give this one a name if you were the FA and absolutely hate it I'm more than willing to change it.

Comments: Be a solid 5.10 climber or bring a stick clip and a crash pad...the three moves to the second bolt are difficult and pumpy at least for me. I had two choices once I made the move; grab onto the bolt for stability (I know cheating) or fall I chose the former. The rest of the route is a piece of cake after that.

Comments: Surprisingly fun Trad line...the tree at the top is so big I'd sling it to protect the crux move...made me wish I brought one (a sling) once I was up there.

Comments: Had a lot of trouble finding anything that looked like a trail. No game trails, just an abrupt end after the ten minute hike past the bridge. It looks like a really fun climb (for the want to get alpine experience + some trad and sport, beginner climber like myself) but could probably use a lot more travel. We spent 2 hours hiking and had to bail on the route because we couldn't find a reasonable way (even after a substantial amount of bush whacking) to get to the darn thing.

Comments: I'd rate the route PG-13 only because decking before the first bolt will send your leg in between a nice boulder and the wall and your body will keep going downhill...sending you straight to the hospital.
