I'm sure people learning will be stoked to have some bolted 8's. Thanks Mike! Jan 12, 2010

My pleasure! That being said, these are young routes that have seen very VERY few ascents, and so they still need to be cleaned a bit. Hopefully some new routes'll be going in soon! Jan 15, 2010

These routes will be great easy additions to the area once they're cleaned a bit more. For now, take care to choose the non-breakable holds. Nov 29, 2010

Climbed these 3 routes May 24,2017. Fun! Watch out for a couple of loose/very hollow flakes and crispy edges especially on the 5.7+, where a helmet for the belayer is advisable. May 24, 2017
