Also, as far as protection goes for the few trad leads here, they tend to possess smaller cracks, which tend to be parallel sided. Small cams might be handy to have. Most cracks are bomber, but a few are a bit gritty or even a bit friable around the ledge which splits some of the routes. Mar 29, 2016

Got out there this weekend and got stung twice by a hornet on my right hand while setting up the anchor for Barrel of Monkeys! Watch out Jun 15, 2015

Yeah, I think a 30m rope would work OK. The routes are short! Mar 27, 2015

What length would work here? Would a 30m rope be too short? Or would it be better to use a 60m rope? Mar 22, 2015
