Comments: "the addition of anchors would make this route a bit more enjoyable."

Bullshit. Much more interesting to build an anchor.

Comments: Am I the only one that realizes a helmet won't save yer noggin from a rock that size? Of course you should wear a helmet, and of course it may stack the odds slightly more in your favor, but it's funny how the comments of "wear a helmet" give the proverbial hall-pass for every chossy area with said inherent risk. Helmets are magic that way.

Glad the sucka missed you.

Comments: Thanks Kirk, I'm glad you cleared that up. Certainly the most difficult crag to find.

EVAR!!!

Maybe we could paint a line on the ground from the road to the crag. I'll donate the florescent pink paint.

Comments: Heh! Great route name.

I'm gonna buy a $600 drill just for this. Can't wait to add an anchor (and spray bolts all over it while I'm at it). I'm super motivated by the quality rating.

Comments: OK kids listen up. You can't really tell with certainty from the pic that those chickenheads will take a proper tie off or not. The lower one looks to me as though a knot would actually make it less secure. Hence the very long runners before the rope is attached.

Comments: RoadTripRyan said, "All bolt hangers are now smashed, and the first bolt is less than waist high. The rock slide/floods last week completely changed/destroyed this route."

Meh, no loss.

Comments: Think twice about lowering from this. The rope runs laterally across some sharp edges. Rapping might be a bit nicer to your ropes.

Rapping, not raping.

Comments: Way to have a good head! There's something intriguing about that choss.

I wonder how many ascents has this route has even had anyway? 3?

Comments: Well let's see....
You could:
1. Try reading the route description, or
2. Note where the anchors on Astroprojection are, surmise the fall line from them (remembering that gravity pulls things straight down), and maybe set a directional if needed.

I ain't no engineer, but I think either of those options will work.

Comments: Flashed this BITD (before I sucked), so maybe something broke. I've never been good @ 5.11.
Or 5.7 for that matter.

Comments: Kind of an odd place to ask such a question, but if you're not physically sleeping somewhere than why would you need a campsite? Just bivy in yer car or get more creative. Unless of course you're worried about Ninja-Rangers out patrolling in the wee hours of the night. If so, climb in all black and don't use any lights or neon colored ropes.
