Hahahaha professional climbers on a closed course! :) Sep 10, 2011

Those to leads were done by professional climbers on a closed course.
Kids don't try this at home.

The gear is bomber and an attentive belayer could keep you off the ground if you pitched just before the anchors. If you pitch just before the anchors, however, you deserve to die. Sep 9, 2011

Fantastic, Jim!!! Your bold lead inspired Geir to follow suit. I belayed him on it earlier this summer. Who's next?

Congrats to both! Sep 8, 2011

Jim Scott led this climb on gear only earlier this year. It was a pretty darn bold lead at the top as he ran it out from the end of the crux to the anchors. Well done my friend! Sep 7, 2011

Awww....I'm blushing, really...
Really fun route. I wasn't even planning on leading that day! High feet and some committing moves. The crag is GORGEOUS and very family friendly! Next time I'll plan on bringing a smaller crowd...say no more than 20? Jul 27, 2010

Congratulations to Jill for sending this route as her first 5.11. The redpoint was done with style and silence -- absolutely beautiful.

If I am not mistaken she warmed up on this route and later sent it. The theory of warming up on your project has another positive data point. Jul 25, 2010
OK OK, three stars is fair. I got on it again today as a cool down and it did feel a bit too short. If only it were longer....sigh....why am I always saying that? Jul 25, 2010

2.5 stars for me, but I'm rounding up for Mr. Bacon. It's pretty easy if you really commit. Big moves to big holds on pretty steep rock... nice. Jul 24, 2010

This is a really terrific line - great rock, super-fun moves, and holds appear just when you need them. This climb is a must do if you come to the Raycreation Area! Jul 18, 2010
