Before I commence with my whiny baby comment, first let me say thank you to Mike and Josh for putting up this collection of routes. Given that most routes at B-Word etc. are 5.11-5.13, it is quite nice to have a collection of routes that are more moderate (this really helps for those of us who have partners that climb at a variety of grades).

That said, what is the deal with the janky anchors on these rigs? At least when I climbed them a year or two ago, the lead bolts were all bomber, but each of the two anchor bolts were studs with one, tiny (dime size) washer holding small link chain on. I had meant to offer up some SS hangers for the anchors, but I moved away before I could do so. I know that the whole "chain and washer" setup has some precedent around here, but I think it is a bummer (I never really liked this setup at B-Word either, but at least there were multiple, larger washers.) Just my two cents.

Again, thanks for the nice routes guys. Cheers. May 19, 2013

Shade here until ~1 pm, super fun climbs. Well protected, easy approaches, variable grades. Amazing place. Thanks so much for the "developers" of this area!! Was able to get down just before the bridge with 2wd. Aug 7, 2016

Yeah if nobody minds, I would like to add a couple sets of anchors so that more than one party can be on the routes. Sep 19, 2016
