Comments: A tad reachy if you are 5'6" but fun. you can wander a bit right or go straight up to one of the bolts. I wandered right then back as JMo did. He later TR'd it straight up to the bolt and said it was really good too.

Comments: 48 inch sling on any pro in the hand crack would not be a bad idea. It was manageable with a shoulder length on a single piece about half way up the hand crack. My first route at Volunteer and it was a great introduction. Nice find Darren.

Comments: Well Kevin, what would you call it then? Brad, sprad, trort? It sounds like you are saying it is a sport route with a little bit of gear. Then of course it is not a sport route it is a trad route. I have been climbing trad routes with bolts on them my whole life which is why I posted it as a trad route. Perhaps what you were trying to say is that it is a really fun trad route because you don't have to lug 20 lbs. of crap up the cliff. Glad you had fun.

Comments: I bolted and led this yesterday with Jimbo. It is really good. Too short for 3 stars but great movement not necessarily bolt to bolt. Micro edges, a jug or two, side pulls, an undercling a pinch and a gaston. They don't get much more interesting.

Comments: Thus the name Jon Ruland. It is also the site of one of Mt. Lemmon's fatalities. Place bomber pro, it is there, or don't fall off! Hope you heal up quickly Jon.

Comments: We went up past the spike then up to the right as is had more gear for an anchor. This route was done before cams and that make it very impressive.

Comments: The fact there isn't a line to do this route every weekend blows my mind. The rock could be a little more sound but the angle makes it safe if you did pop a hold off.

Comments: Serious sandbag? Is it 5.11-? No, okay, then it is a little off. Plus or minus a letter or two is not a serious sandbag John. I suggest you consult with Don Buland before posting Jon! ;)

Comments: Have to agree with John H. Those of you who have climbed there know, this is a very special place. The we have the ability to preserve access to it for us now and future generations is more than a responsibility to me it's an honor. Thanks for posting this up John.

Comments: At the ledge about half way up the bolt is an exciting clip above a ledge. My tall partner had no problem but I was happy to put the finger sized cams I didn't use at the start in a crack at the ledge. The next bolt is fifteen feet down so if you were to pop off clipping and bounce of the ledge you would take a 30-40 footer. if you are 5' 10" or so you might be able to clip it from the ledge. Upper wall is great!

Comments: Never a good idea to jug a stuck rope. It is easy to walk around to the top and rap in. If you had another rope to climb Swept... you could have led Rapture again. Glad you didn't hit anything.

Comments: This route came about after spending a week at Hueco Tanks with Todd Skinner. He had been working on a thing called the Gunfighter. He had been working on it for some time. The concept of "projecting" was so new to me and I decided to find a project. I am not positive but I think went up alone and rapped down the back side of Chimney pulling on to the wall drilling bolts as I went. I was guessing where they should go in order to clip them. I returned with Steve Amter and headed up planning to p... more >>

Comments: Replaced all the old bolts and hangers except for some anchors with ASCA safeclimbing.org/ hardware. I also found one hold on a route on the far left that had an enhanced hold. A'90s indiscretion on my part. I vaguely remember it was done to make the "impossible" first clip less difficult. I returned that hold to roughly it's original state. Clipping the first bolt is now almost impossible but you can do it or stick clip it. My apologies.

Comments: Well I just measured mine and it is only 66M long. That is short but still only 12 feet short. I would still encourage that the anchors be lowered to the last bolt for rope rubbing and to make sure those who are unaware they have a shorter rope will be safer.
