Most of the route beneath the first bolt is now at the base of the crag. A seemingly solid block just above and to the right of the first bolt pulled off on our leader and knocked other basketball-sized blocks off below. Leader decked but was slowed considerably by a badly rope burned belayer. Incredibly and thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.

Blocks are likely still loose just above first bolt and near second. Again, AVOID.

Be careful on this route. I was leading this on Saturday 6/11/2016, the last climb of a group of five. A significant portion of rock to the right of the first bolt fell while I was climbing on it.

There was a small rock with an X on it, which I avoided because it was loose. However, I grabbed the side of the large blob on the right, after tapping it - it sounded and felt completely stable. Yet, when I went to proceed a very large portion of rock fell out from underneath me, taking me with it to the ground. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.

However, I would be careful with any rock to the right of the bolt line. There is a large flake that looks like it has a faint X on it (unneeded for the route, could be tempting) Avoid this and pretty much anything out to the right.

I cleaned some of the remaining loose blocks today. There is a big one with an "X" on it I could not remove. It may require more equipment than I had solo today. Climbers should not be that far right anyway.

This route has those big (Massey??) hooks for anchors. The third bolt is difficult/crimpy.

Big moves if you are short. But a really fun route.

Big moves if you're under 6 feet. Pretty fun. I was thrown off a little by the idea of using the holds underneath the bush growing after bolt 3, however.

This route was pretty stiff for 5.9. Although short, the overhung crux packs a punch. A must do on the circuit.

The one move at the third bolt is overhung and makes this route harder than the one left of it, so I would put this at 10a. Stay on the small holds right instead of using that white, chalked-up jive hold up and left.

The crux maybe a 10- move, but then after that it's easy climbing (5.7-5.8) to the top. Not a very long climb either. Worth doing nonetheless.

Second bolt needs replacing, it's a cracked spinner in some pretty manky rock.

I checked all the bolts today. One anchor bolt was loose, and one of the quicklinks was loose. The second bolt was only loose, nothing cracked, and the rock is fine. I tightened all the bolts and the quicklinks. The mussy hooks show very little wear.
