Not recently. It was about 3-4 years ago. There were some loose crystals up top and a big loose very rotten horizontal flake (hard to avoid touching it) that was literally flaking off in the middle of the route. I remember being glad that I had chosen to reverse the usual order of things for me at Rushmore and lead the 9 and toprope the 8 at a dual anchor. I will be right there this summer as leading Jupiter Fly By is a goal. I will take another look at Micro Climb and see if it looks less chossy... Apr 27, 2016

I don't recall any bad rock on this route. I have done it a few times as a warm up in the area. I see plenty of people on it. Have you climbed it recently mark? Maybe I need to relook at it. Thanks! Apr 18, 2016

Poor rock quality in the middle and top of route-- kind of hard to see the holds at the bottom-- annoying. Apr 17, 2016
