I was climbing this area 20 years ago, the last time 15 years ago was awful, dirty, buggy, overgrown. I heard recently there was some new development, so I went to take a look, and am happy to report that the climbs on reclamation wall are super enjoyable. The routes are short, generously bolted, and the rock is great for friction when dry. We only climbed the 1/2 dozen 5.8s, and tr'ed a 10.c. I had heard a comment that the ratings are sandbagged- I didn't think so, but after climbing in the gym all winter or on edgy basalt and sandstone, it took a few climbs to accept that your feet will stick almost anywhere. Lots of open hand, down pressure movement, easy on the fingers. The rock was very solid. There are several new climbs not listed above, mostly in the 8 or 9 range. Very fun, looking forward to going back and working up the grades! Jul 6, 2018
