I had a hard time finding where you set a top rope from and what I did find was kinda sketchy and would have required a long extension. I ended up covered in poison oak. Shitty Feb 19, 2018

If you read the intro to the area (upper bidwell park) you will notice 2 things. There is little beta about where and how to set up the topropes and they take long extensions. For color wall we usually use a full 50m rope to get down to the 'anchor' (a tree and a slung rock). And there is massive amounts of P.O. Everywhere. Feb 19, 2018
