Route is prolly a letter grade harder (and 1 star better) if you don't touch the huge flake. Jul 30, 2015
last bolt could be pulling out. it had about 1 1/4" of threads sticking out and the whole stud spun when trying to tighten with fingers. excellent route maybe a little more or heavy handed cleaning? thanks for the great crag. Sep 18, 2015

Thanks for the report, Tim. We used 3.5" wedge bolts on most of these routes so there should be a good bit of steel still in the hole but I'll take a look at it next time we're out there.

We got super aggro with the cleaning and spent A LOT of time per route working stuff loose. I think the rock is just barely good enough for climbing so it'll keep on cleaning up. That said, if anyone wants to get after it with some more cleaning on any of these routes, have at it! Sep 19, 2015
thanks. I am sure this area took a ton of work to clean. thankless work, most people just complain about one thing or another. I was just trying to make it clear that holds are still coming off and climbers should be careful out there. I see a lot of newer climbers that just pull on anything within reach, no helmets and belaying directly below the climber. Not a good combo out here. THIS CRAG IS NOT TO BE MISSED IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA. JUST BE AWARE, LIKE ANY NEW CRAG. THANKS AGAIN. Sep 28, 2015
