Comments: The route is two pitches. Build an anchor and finish it or put in a set of bolts up and left. I could do that if I get there this year. There used to be a poorly located anchor that allowed you to lower off after the first pitch but that got removed as is allowed people to avoid the finish of Reef Stricken.

Comments: Nice going DJ. Glad to see some of these old lines getting climbed. These things are spooky and you can get hurt so good for you for doing it! I think I backed off this route a long time ago.

Comments: I didn't realize you were asking about El Cuervo under Organized Labor. El Cuervo is epic and an experience that will stay with you. I do second some of those John suggests as well as Nevermore 5.12 and the four routes left of it. They may not be 12 but you will earn the onsights on them and they are shady pretty early. Head Doctor and Doctor's Orders are also shady early and allow you to warm up for other things headed for the shade.

Comments: Only know of three people who have ever done it. Me,Dean Brault and Eddie Mofardin. Outrageous crux way up in the air. Unfortunately or fortunately there is a big rest to the right just before the crux sequence. Some shenanigans to get down too. It is a route you will remember doing. Super good stone too as it is overhanging and orange.

Comments: I hit them again and more down the hill. Wait awhile before you try to pull unless you get all the roots.

Comments: Fun little place to spend some time. Interesting rock with some cool texture/knobs up higher. Worth a visit. I hope that you guys put more time into the belay spots and path to the cliff.

Comments: I thought we all assumed that ratings can go either way by a letter or two. Jeez, those numbers are just a start until others add their thoughts on the routes rating. I think anyone who claims a route is a letter grade different is being silly. Miss a hold and it is harder, find a small one no one uses and it is easier blah blah blah! Someone has retired JJ, get ready for more of this!

Comments: Time to change the gear selection to no rope stoppers or cams, just two big nuts! Just absolutely amazing Alex Honnold!

Comments: If you lower off the second pitch lower offs back to the belay ledge you can belay someone on TR or pull the rope for so they can lead the pitch as well. Adrian is the only person I have seen belay at the top of the second pitch.

Comments: Read my notes on this climb and here is mostly what I had written in my notebook. This route starts just right of a chimney on the buttress that is the tallest part of the formation. 1)Ten bolts lead to a two bolt belay on a ledge. A tricam or 3/4 TCU and small brass nuts might be helpful between bolts 9 and 10. 2)Climb face above belay to a bolt, move right to large hold and seams where brassies might be helpful even though I didn't use any. Higher up wired nuts can be used in a horizontal.... more >>

Comments: Is everyone rap bolting now? The one true local who was raised in Hill City doesn't care how they go up. Just wondering if there is still a group of route police or if I can put routes up the way I want? Aggressive Tendoncies was put up by me on lead, ground up drilling on lead with a hook for pro now and then. When accused of hanging on that hook The accuser almost got a fist sandwich for lunch. Did the "rules" make it a better route? I don't think so, just more run out. Just ... more >>

Comments: Pin was pulled, with the new gear there is still good protection. Thought we upgraded all the anchors but I guess not. Next trip.

Comments: These days I would have to give this route an R rating as there are some runs that will lead to whippers to the ground or ledges if you fall off. If you can't keep your head together on 10 to 15 foot run outs don't get on this climb. On pitch 3 the climbing is easy but there are some really long runs which is par for the course on old school climbs. If you cannot solo 5.8 don't get on it. That being said it is a fun climb. Didn't feel contrived to me even though bolts on the firs... more >>

Comments: I lead this route after doing something else with Bob. The five feet of "unclimbable" was surmounted by making a no hands stand up and deadpointing to a good hold.

Comments: In the last two weeks(3/28/17-4/9/17 me, Elisa Phillips, Katya Lin and Rachel High have added 5 new single pitch routes to this wall. They are all single pitch sport routes. These routes are all bolted lines that go to existing or new anchors part way up the cliff. If you are using Squeezing the Lemmon III the leftmost route is Loonatic Fringe 10+ and is just left of Rich and Dave Route. the next one moving right towards Windy Point is not yet named and is just right of the first pitch of Mean M... more >>

Comments: Okay Kids, there are photos of the Gumby Wall in SQ III on pages 345 and 349.
These are taken from the highway you drive up. There is a black and white overhead showing you where Gumby wall is on Barnum Rock, it is on page 348. If you cannot find this cliff perhaps you should hire a guide. It boggles my mind at the inability of people to find a cliff they can look at and walk to! I guess some people have so little experience navigating outside this one is a real puzzler! Or they don'@S... more >>
