Comments: You're totally right. Spending $100 to bolt a route and putting it up on mountain project for others to enjoy is really selfish.

Comments: The first pitch is only 30 ft, it's runout but not that wild.

Please don't put up any routes because it doesn't seam like you know what you are doing. The first set of anchors is a bolt with a quicklink and chain and the other "bolt" is a metolious rap hanger that you can thread your rope through and rap or lower off from.

Comments: I left a BD #3 blue cam at the 90 ft wall on 3/19. It was only like 4 ft off the ground as a dog anchor. Hopefully someone found it and can get it back to me. I checked a week after and it was gone, hopefully they don't think it's booty.

Comments: There's a new guide book out that has most of the routes in it. There's definitely more than 5 routes up there.

Comments: Yep, pretty wild descent. In the dark and the cables were down. To me, coming down off half dome was way scarier than the 90ft runouts on snake dike.

Comments: I don't think anything broke off. It's just a hard thin slab. It goes straight up and a little to the right. I don't want to sound like a dick, but 5.11s at Malibu creek are way different than 5.10 slabs at Tahquitz or Yosemite. Good luck dude! You'll send it soon.

Comments: There's 2 bomber 3/8s bolts at the top of this route. And an old 1/4in one too.

Comments: How can this a V3 be way harder than Clay Face which is a V5? This must be like V7.

Comments: I've never placed a glue in before so I don't know how they should sit. I camo all my bolts before I put them in. Also use a little paint pen to touch them up if I only paint the hangers and need to camo the nuts/bolt head. And spray paint really pisses me off, I've done a ton of graffiti removal in the angeles national forest. Luckily only climbers will see this so it shouldn't hurt our access.

Comments: Where is this? I've never seen any of this near twin peaks or anywhere above 6,000ft up the crest before.

Comments: Take the fun diagonal crack to a small belay ledge. Sling and flake and hang out. Then send your partner up the twin cracks and out of view to a fun ridge line scramble.

Comments: Were they using it as a back up for rappelling? Or just as an ascender? I've ascended like 180ft using a shoulder length dyneema as a prussic and had no problems to unstick a rope. I can see it getting hot rapping with it but not as an emergency ascender.

Comments: I brought a second rope but left it at the top of the first pitch and rapped everything with a single 60m and then one double rope from the top of the first. Also I didn't have any tricams, but I found a nice spot for a BD #2 in one of the holes on the last pitch.

Comments: I just lead the undercling crack and then clipped the second bolt and then went to the top. We TRed the true line, and it's a little chossy getting to first bolt.

Comments: Really someone put pink tape/flags up to mark the trail? Stuff like this gets places shut down, you already can't park in the campground to climb.
