This area was bolted by Mark VanHorn, Ric Geiman and Eric Chistiansen.
All first ascents were of the above parties and close friends. There was a mini-guide in Rock and Ice in the late 1990s that had Shambala(the bolted area) and Aryuveda (the bouldering and TR area). The area might be closed as it was periodically since it opened, but Shambala should not be mined due to its elevation and hills, cliffs to access it (just speculation), but Aryuveda was in the process of blasting when it was tentatively open. There are approximately 30(bolted) routes...all worth doing, as easy as .9+ and as hard as .12c. The rock is bullet-hard maroon sandstone. Dec 23, 2008
