Pitch 1 is 90' and has 4 protection bolts. Pitch 2 is about 115' and has 6 protection bolts (or 7 if you move slightly right and clip an off-route anchor with a long sling about halfway up the pitch). Walking off looked scary (class 4 or easy class 5?). We used two ropes to rappel. A single 70 m rope might suffice. The bolts are all good (except for the off-route anchor, which has old quarter-inch bolts). Nov 30, 2013
Floyd: Did you do the nearby History Repeats Itself? Amazing route! I enjoyed this one as well, but History is the crag gem IMO. Nov 30, 2013

Unfortunately no. We intended to climb History Repeats Itself but just as we arrived a shower soaked the rock, which became really slick. So instead we opted for the easier Falling Shirkens, which dried up after we finished the first pitch (which felt like 5.10 when wet!). We had a big family reunion for Thanksgiving in Palm Desert and didn't have time to do another route. Dec 4, 2013
