If all you want is route location and grade, then pick up a copy of Rock Climbing NM by Dennis Jackson. This is a bare bones guidebook that won't mess up a pure OS. I personally don't read the description of a route, comments or look at pictures of a route before I attempt to OS something. But it sure is fun to read the route description & comments later.

I do want route information. I want to know where a route is and its grade. MP users typically do not spray beta in the route information so that everyone can have a chance to try and onsight. Apr 13, 2017

^^^^ Take away the beta? If you don't want any route beta, then don't troll around on a website where the mantra is "Beyond the Guidebook". If you're so pure, next time just show up to the crag, pick a line, and fire away Scotty. Apr 10, 2017

Please delete your comments. Your unsolicited beta takes away the possibility of on-sighting from everyone that scrolls through this route page. Apr 10, 2017

Some of the best rock we encountered at the Pogue's Cave area was on this climb. Fun, monkey (see gymnastic) movement to the crux bulge, then heel-hook and REACH.....I'll let you figure out the rest! Have fun! Apr 22, 2011

Try a heel-hook at the crux! Makes that insane crimp just a bit easier to deal with! Sep 16, 2007
