– You can transmit the virus through climbing and bouldering – this is why the gyms are all closed. There’s no evidence that climbing outside is less likely to spread the virus. Stay home.
– It took a lot of effort to secure legal climbing access at the Powerlinez and other crags. Now, our community will be judged by how responsibly we behave in this moment. Don’t endanger future access.

Top-Roping: To set up a top anchor, traverse right (East) under the base of the Shadow Castle and Devonshire sectors, and continue past a steep loose gully and under the Jumble Hotel crag, almost to the base of the Puzzle Palace crag. Scramble up the steep left-trending gully (careful of loose sections) on the left side of Puzzle Palace, then horizontal Left (SouthWest) along the top of the cliff past above Albion slab, then down below the top about ten feet, then about another thirty feet back East.
warning: The rock on and around this cliff has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2015. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
