Comments: Only a forty foot runout did not realized we put the bolts in that close.Actually its sad really that many climbers these days are still insisting on doing one pitch climbs..This is a good example of a route that has SIX pitches.Maybe there is an epidemic going around of acrophobia?

Comments: Just a detail:- The first ascent of the Bridge pitch was mostly done on aid by Joe Cote,John Porter,Paul Ross in 1972 as the 4th pitch of The Mines of Morea. The FFA of the Bridge pitch was done four years later in 1976 by Jimmy Dunn.

Comments: Looks great at least as long a climb as most of the FA's on here. Keep up the good work.I really think there is an epidemic among climbers of acrophobia.

Comments: Best to have 4 wheel drive to get to Three Fingers Canyon. The first wash can give problems to two wheel . Its about 30 mins walk from the wash to the canyon.Little Spotted wolf parking is easy with two wheel.

Comments: Always best on any of the Reef climbs to take along some back up webbing. Some of the climbs were put up over nine years ago so original webbing might look a bit old.On many of the more current climbs we have left biners on the rap stations.

Comments: To Alex et all . Strange there is over 200 climbs on the reef yet it seems everyone jumps on the easiest climb ... I guess it makes them feel good to criticize. The title says its a 1000' feet of fun ...thats all it is . Try some of the other climbs and see if you think there is bit more fun more adventure plus difficulty. Ninety five percent of the climbs over 5.8 have yet to have a second ascent..let alone the 5.11 and 12's Bye the way you can top out if you move across right and join the 1200... more >>
