This is an excellent area, esp when it's hot down in the valley. IMO, more reminiscent of The Needles than Indian Creek -- I don't believe we used more than two pieces of a given size on any single pitch.
Kudos to the first ascensionists etc, but I feel they were in general much too aggresive w/ the drill -- virtually every bolt on the climbs I did had a reasonable if small gear placement near by. For instance, the first bolt of Sons of Liberty is about one foot to the side of a solid green Alien placement.

It reminds me of an alpine Cookie Cliff.
Some routes do seem to have bolts next to gear placements. The majority of the trad routes done after 2002 have no lead bolts whatsoever. We tried to buck that trend and establish routes ground up, on-site without any bolts (adding belay bolts later). Hopefully future first ascentionists will continue this ethic and only bolt when necessary.

And if I don't have this guidebook how do I get there? I thought Mountain Project was "Beyond the Guidebook" not "Refer to the Guidebook".
Sorry, but I've had a tough day.

|If you are doing the routes at the first cliff please be careful not to lower/rap off the end of your rope! This has happened to multiple parties up here with a 60m.|

|A friend and I lost a dog up in the Hilton/Davis Lakes area on July 16th. If anyone notices any sign of a lost, 90lb, black/brindle (white chest) hound dog roaming around in the woods, please call David at 305-333-8681. Any sign of him, however uncertain, will be much appreciated. Thanks everyone!|
