Ya know what's great about MP, vague descriptions get built up by other climbers. When I'm out climbing and I open up the MP app, any beta works to get me in the general area. Once I climb the uncommon route, I add beta. I just figured someone else on MP that has climbed it, would help this website out. That's the goal of MP,is it not. With MP being so popular these days and guidebooks being more archaic, one must wonder why there are so many routes in that great location that aren't published..

Thanks for responding Mike and I appreciate you as an administrator trying to add beta to the route guide no matter how vague. Whoever deleted them, did not even ask if I was finished adding beta. Hopefully this person learns how to do their volunteered duty. I've been a member of MP for almost 9 years and have contributed a lot to MP. I would be honored to be an administrator and fix beta on route guides. Apr 29, 2016

Dan, I didn't delete the routes and not sure which admin did but I did notice that your route entries were very short on practical information, you had copied out of date info from the guidebook and more to the point had you climbed the routes you would know, for example, "New Arrival" has new bolts plus a chain anchor at the top.

Fixing your entries was on my 'to do' list but I didn't get to it before they were deleted.

Maybe you can re-submit the routes with up to date info? I've climbed both and they are worthy. Apr 29, 2016

There are other cool 5.10 routes on this wall, but you can thank the admins for deleting them. Apr 29, 2016
