Now THESE are bolts. They're left over from old mining operations somewhere on Squaw Peak. I think they were below Buckley's Mine.
Rough topo showing the route we took. Your mileage may vary. The stream is out of sight just below the photo.

Approximate location of the routes on the east side of Reservoir Ridge. You can't really see Unknown Trad Line (#4) in this pic, but it's an obvious thin crack when you're standing below it. It shares

Stolen Chimney/Ancient Art Topo I climbed the route for my second time last week and figured I'd make this while the route was still somewhat fresh in my mind. A very comfortable rack would be 1.5

Horns of Satan topo. The ratings and gear reflect my personal feelings and do not perfectly correlate with what the MP page says.
You can see the three quickdraws in the larger version of the pic. You can also see the chains at the top. The route goes over the big roof.

Climbing areas in Rock Canyon (upper canyon limestone). Not every single wall with routes is on the map; there are lots of walls with routes still in the works. But this is a relatively complete map.

These are most of the areas on the south side of the canyon. There are some other areas that have routes that haven't been redpointed yet. If I'm missing something, let me know. If something is mislab
Bomber! This is the original summit anchor. The rock on top is pretty chossy and had eroded away about half an inch over the years. We backed it up with another anchor.
