Comments: My first time doing this climb. Very fun climb
P1 Steel crazy to belay bolts
P2 climb on the right side rock above the obvious gully to an alcove in the gully
P3/P4 Did both pitches as 1 on a 60m rope. Climb out of the alcove straight up on a crack to some bolts then a run out area on chickenheads to the top with a two bolt belay
Great exposure, rock and a fun onsite!

Comments: Waterfall was running today and the crows were buzzing overhead all day. Fun climb that stays consistently at the grade.

Comments: Great climb with good protection. The bottom of the P1 will get your attention.

Comments: If you notice the description lists gear in the middle. I originally had this route as trad and someone complained because it only has one gear placement. I changed it to sport and added that it needs gear. There is no selection on MP for mixed as a route description.

Comments: This is a good beginning trad lead. It is well protected and easier than 5.7 for all of the climb except the start which is 5.7.

Comments: Fun area - thanks EFR and Jim Scott for putting up some nice long routes.

We had a couple of holds break off on lead - definitely bring helmets!

Comments: My wife and I had a good time on our last day of a week of climbing. The routes were well protected and fun. We had shade until 10:30 am.

Comments: The route starts downhill from the routes on the east side of the crag. It is left and downhill of The Inspiration. You start on top of the boulder with a 5.8 start move then the climb eases off to a short headwall. There are no bulges to speak of.

Comments: I agree with Marcy. The climbs should be cleaned for safety, but not altered to be made climbable or easier.

Comments: The anchors and hangers have been pulled from Lords of Karma and Pali Gap due to a report from a climber of loose bolts. Yesterday, I checked all of the anchors, hangers and bolts by shock loading them with a Grigri backup and could find no loose bolts. Some of the hangers and one of the anchors needed routine tightening. I don't think there is anything wrong but shut down the routes and pulled the anchors and hangers

Comments: I just got a call that there are some loose bolts on Pali Gap and Lords of Karma. DO NOT CLIMB ON THESE 2 ROUTES UNTIL I GET THIS FIXED.

I am going to go to the routes tomorrow and will assess what needs to be done. I will probably pull all of the hangers off tomorrow.

Comments: Dave Weeks did the route on TR with no falls and no hangs 6 months ago. If you want to bolt it and lead it for the FA be my guest and come up with a name. I agree with you on your analysis of the route and the crux is definitely getting off the ledge. I hope you enjoyed the area and it was a blast to put up.
