Comments: Guess I was one of those repeat offenders. I have tossed plenty of those warnings over the years, and one time I received a notice to appear. I fought the law, but the law won...

The Humber Park fees are a joke. A couple picnic tables, a couple stupid info-boards, striped parking lanes, and a shitter that's not cleaned often enough is going to justify a parking pass, according to the courts.

Comments: Nice pic of a great pitch. Pitches 4,5,6,7 are all solid stellar.

Comments: the first time doing this route, the lone bolt on the first pitch protecting the 10- move was also one of the crappy, nailed in aluminum hanger. I never understood why only that one bolt was upgraded.

Comments: I scrambled a nondescript buttress that goes to the lookout tower. Then took the ridge straight down to Lilly rock. I saw you guys from most of the high points on the ridge line.

Comments: this was the way we always did Dragon Flake, and was shown to me as the Dragon Flake... the other one is the cheater variation. What do I know, it was 1987ish...

Comments: BITD, Dragon Flake was always the direct start. This was always the cheater variation...

Comments: I remember this route being a bunch of little cruxes, one kinda hard. And being quite fun.

Comments: That's my problem, I can't justify a 16hr day for 6 pitches. I wish I did not despise hiking...

Comments: Yeah, MP is full of too much beta, that's the point of MP I thought... Still a super slippery slope.

But, even with all of this beta, you can and people do die, all the time...

Comments: I've always liked combining the first two pitches, using the 2nd pitch belay that is in the book's topo as the first belay. I have always gotten to the top in two.

By: x15x15 When: Jun 11, 2014

Comments: I like the 2nd pitch of Dave's over jam crack. Better and more sustained climbing... some pro can be found. And with the line of bolts to the left, I really like clipping the bolt and turning the overlap/ roof to get to the ledge.

Comments: A very short-lived pain in the ass. This is my normal start to Snakes or Consolation. Care should be taken to avoid knocking loose stuff off, but that's Tahquitz...

Comments: I guess if you want a paint by numbers approach... but I still don't see a whole lot of "original" material on this page.

Comments: Combining pitches 2 and 3 makes for a better second pitch. If you do the Stairway to Heaven variation, clip the belay with long slings and keep going. If doing the 5.8 2nd pitch, no need to go to the belay bolts, just keep on trucking to the base of Price of Fear.

Comments: this is another route that I like to stretch into one longer pitch by combining 1 & 2...

Comments: I can't think of too many places a #4 is really needed, and definitely not a #5. there is always a spot nearby that a #3 would work just fine. the first pitch is different character and gear than second pitch. the original pitches are rather short too, so you really don't need extra gear to combine the 2 pitches. just a normal rack for more normal length pitches.

a 60m rope will just work fine... barely... if your knot is just right...

Comments: But the fact still remains that the climb was fine as it was... if you want safety guaranteed, stay home...

Comments: I can't believe that it has taken this long to get this route on mtn project. It will be interesting to see if it increases traffic on the route. The Price of Fear is quite fun and not as bad as the name suggests...
