Comments: There's more fixed gear than Bryan mentions. We found:
P1: 2 bolts, 1 pin
P2: ditto, rap anchor(2bolts) @ end
P3: bolt, 2 pins in crack (quite vegetated--bummer)
P4: 4 bolts
P5: 1 pin marking where you climb thru the trees
P6: 2 bolts
P7: 3 bolts

Used sm/med nuts, 00 to #3 camalot, long runners, and draws.

Be prepared for some stimulating bolt spacing on P7 especially, as the rock is really polished. Also, there was a water/slippery moss crossing before the belay on P2--good times.

Comments: This isn't a sport route. +1 for that pink tricam--absolutely bomber. With it, this route is protected just as well as dreamscape (which is NOT rated R).

Just because this isn't memorable for you to lead, doesn't mean it isn't for others. Many of my most memorable/fun routes have been R ones.

Third, without some ethics, BCC would quickly turn into Rock Canyon. You really want a spraying of bolts and "convenience anchors" everywhere?

Comments: Perfect beginner lead as stated. Easier and more straight forward than Norma's Book imo. Plus, all trad leaders should be building anchors. Much more fun than clipping chains. rant rant

Comments: Pretty stellar route. The shared start with Early Bird is fantastic, as is the crux of Boing. Makes me wish I was good enough to do EB. The 5.8-5.9ish face after the dihedral was kicks too.

Comments: Wow Brian. Really only WI3? looks spooky and hard to me. How often does that come in? Approx approach time?

And look @ all the potential rock routes. 5 min approach right?

Comments: Cheese Block Rock is east from Rolling Stone accross the talas. Routes are all short and not terribly inspiring, ya know, kinda...cheesy. Surprisingly fun though. And if you've hiked up that talas...
Thanks to Doug Heinrich for loaning us his drill back in '99. It only held a charge to drill 1 hole usually, so we made WAY too many marches up and down that talas to put these routes in.

Comments: Any info about "The Drip"? I ran into someone of the FA party years ago (didn't catch his name) and he reported it was "done and is all bolts. Rated .11b/c with P1 and P2 worthwhile, P3 .10d w/ .9R section, P4 .9 R.".

Comments: For the life of me I couldn't see a bolt to the right of the 1st bolt on P1, so I didn't dare venture. I'd appreciate some info on where it is so I know how R it is and so forth. Anyone?

Comments: Great route that I think gets done little. A perfect example of a route that would be lackluster if it were bolted. The gear makes it much more interesting.

Comments: Seriously? "Standardized anchors"? Sorry for your friends injury, but really?

I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you're screwing around. In which case, bravo.

Comments: Pitch 1 is comically hard--you don't expect it to be @ all. Pitch 2 has 40 feet of awesome 5.8 crack. A must do.
