Comments: A bolt was added last year by me and Jimbo so no gear is needed.

Comments: The lower section of this route has a bit of funky rock and it may not be a good idea to pull on everything like a hold in the gym.

Comments: Lots of routes you wouldn't want to fall on including getting on to the ledge where the first moves begin. The run out sections are a number grade or more easier than the hardest moves on the route. This climb makes it possible to reach the stunning second pitch of Nuts and bolts with only quick draws.

Comments: Climbed Castle as an alternate start as there was a lot of water at the crux of this climb. Castle was wet as well but I had a big fat bolt protecting me as I did the crux. This is a really great two pitch route if you can place pro. If not, wet or dry do Castle. The second pitch will make you forget the first sport pitch isn't nearly good as the second.

Comments: Hey Jbak, We took a bunch of epoxy up there and coated the skinny chain to reinforce it. I am guessing it is now stronger and safe enough for you. Since your old buddy isn't around to mess with you I thought I would! Haha.

Comments: Camp at the first left right after turning on to the road. If you can't hitch a ride in the morning with someone hike in and leave your climbing gear until the next morning so all you need to do is carry in food and water. Takes about an hour according to the dozen or so people I have talked to who did it.

Comments: My personal favorite at the Crags against Humanity. If it was longer I would give it three stars.

Comments: Are you serious about that chain Jbak? Are you taking whippers on it? You sound like my someone who doesn't have a clue. How long have you been climbing. Luke put that up so I can assure you it is bombproof. Hahaha! Welcome back! ;)

Comments: People need to assess risks of a fall. It isn't a game and it can seriously alter or end you life. Be cautious until you are good enough to make a clear choice with a clue to the risks involved.

Comments: Okay Kids, how about taking some responsibility for your climbing areas. Instead of pointing out climbs with issues how about we educate ourselves and fix things when you find them or go back and fix them next weekend or next day. Check out school of rock on this site to figure out if something needs to be fixed. I thank you in advance for getting involved in the stewardship of our areas.

Comments: Not sure what you were on. Boot Hill North End has a number of new routes on it making the current topo out of date. If you can climb the existing routes you will not be troubled with the new ones. They actually allow you to make a full day out of going there. Do you have the new Guidebook SammyG?

Comments: That lone bolt might be the alternate finish I did to Endgame. You should do it as it adds a more direct cool but slightly harder pitch to Endgame. Geir shows it in green in his guidebook as a variation.

Comments: I was just deleting excess photos and saw some from Weathertop. This made me wonder if people were getting up there as I think it is one of the better cool weather crags we have.

Comments: I wouldn't have put in the low anchors but it was nice you did. This gives the 5.7 climbers another route to lead. If you climb 5.9 then continue up the extension as one pitch.

Comments: I am 5.6 and recall having to really keep my head together but not that the moves once committed to were all that hard but comitting. This is why it is still a 10 in the guidebook which of course means it could be 10+. Nice job leading this one as it is rarely lead.
