1.) DON'T GET HURT! Rescues are the biggest liability and headache. Make conservative climbing choices and be crystal-clear about commands to your partner.
2.) Park legally! Your vehicle must be within the white line and perpendicular to the road. No parking parallel to the road; this is to save space as well as make it easier when leaving. No parking along the guard rail or anywhere except the two pullouts.
3.) Pack everything out! Wrappers, poop, banana peels, all of it. If your thing falls down the slope, retrieve it.
4.) Dogs must be on good behavior. Better yet, leave them at home. If they're digging or chasing wildlife or barking, put them back in the car.
5.) Leave your music player at home and enjoy your intoxicants somewhere else.
It is absolutely ESSENTIAL that climbers keep themselves off the radar here or we risk access to one of the region's most popular crags.
Climb up a powerful sequence to get to where an old bolt stem is broken off. Then at the small overhang, cut hard left and pull into a right leaning hand crack and follow up to Stigmata anchors. If you go straight up from the bolt, and over the bulge, the route goes at a strenuous 5.12a. The 5.12a part, and the easier trad section of The Bulge are often dirty early in the season. It's worth a few minutes to brush the hard parts before attempting. However, the 5.11c crux is typically clean year-round.
