Find Space Warp and then walk back towards the Big Roof. This is the first of several bolted lines that are more or less forgettable before you hit Needles and Pins, a stellar 10a. 'Why Doesn't Anybody Climb This' suffers from being surrounded by poison ivy and choss. It's actually a pretty good line, and with more traffic could be better. So give it a rip if you're out for a warm up or if a 10 lead is about your style.

Bolts. Please use your own gear for top rope. Please bring an extra biner and if the ones up top look bad or don't easily clip or shut, please replace it. It's good karma.

Lots of new rockfall (Spring 2008) at the base of this and the adjoining routes. These routes are covered in dirt and choss that has come down from above the anchors.
