Anyone done Desolation Row? How is it? Jun 12, 2006
Had two nerf-sized football rocks fall from the top of the formation while climbing today. They came about 15 seconds apart from I'm guessing hikers at the top since we were the only climbers in the area. Not cool. Sep 27, 2015
There is a new extension to Sundown. Its goes at approx. 10b range above Sundown's anchor and the next pitch after that is upper 11 range. All bolts. Get on it! Nov 6, 2015
