Location: AZ : Central Arizona : **Prescott Areas : Granite Mountain : Swamp Slabs : Tread Gently (5.8)

Comments: Did this rope soloing to be near friends who were on Dislocation and had a blast. It's a fun route and has some cruxy puzzles that do need a clear head -- followed Bill's guide as best I could and just tried to stay on the most difficult crack path upward while staying right of Dislocation. A few thin finger crack sections with sketchy gear, a great fun hand crack roof (would be good warm up for Magnolia), and some fun slab sections with no gear. Did it wi... more >>

Comments: This is absolutely the way to do Green Savior! Brian and I missed the direct start last year when we did Crisco with G.S. and that stellar first pitch makes for a super 4 pitch outing. Such a compelling line and it protects very nicely -- one #4 and one #6 did just fine and if the leader of Crisco takes the #6 it makes protecting the traverse a bit better (I didn't, choosing not to have the anchor while leading the thrutch fest, but had done the traverse bef... more >>

Comments: Modified the description and also the route "map" after redoing this route last weekend and getting great input from a couple folks. Basically, when Brian and I did it the first time we misread the Cramer topo for this route and didn't think to take the obvious vertical crack up the middle of the upper face that is pitch 3 in Bill's guide, but ends up being pitch 2 the way I'd recommend. So, redid it with N... more >>

Comments: Strange start, though and significantly harder than 5.6 if you go direct. Fun, though and good gear.

Comments: Indeed. Many bolts, closely and strangely placed, making for an easier line than Black Cleft for sure. But, certainly a fun route with a great overhanging top out. Will try to original on gear next time, slightly to the left I'm guessing.

Comments: Hey Greg, will be great to coordinate with you next time you think you'll get up. I've been gone since I posted, but now hopefully most Fall-winter weekends. Falcons didn't scream at me much. I'm not trying to make notes on their behavior and where they are every time I'm there to give to USFS. Noel seems genuinely interested in getting the data that might help support a partial closure, or even a... more >>

Comments: Wow, what a climb! Burly, burly! Had a #5 and it's useful on p. 1 and 3, though not absolutely necessary and I may not take next time now that I know my arm bars work. P3 sure is stellar, but on a warm, humid (for here) summer day, ooof!

Comments: As the mountain opens up again to climbing, I have a request for help in gathering data. I've had a productive meeting with the USFS and am encouraged about working with them. If you can send me by personal email (arjunmh@me.com, or obviously clicking on my MP name) your observations on Peregrine presence and behavior, I can help the USFS compile and collect some very important data on how they're doing. Specifically, date and time and location of <... more >>

Comments: Yes, this is a fine route and I wish several hundred more people would climb it to clean it out and scare the bats into a different crack. Would get 3 stars if a bit cleaner. It's kinda cool to climb and get the sense of what the other more popular routes must've been like back in the day. BD small X4s are also perfect for the crux, which is indeed a cool sequence of moves. All very protectable and doable for the grade. Glad to have finally gotten on it.

Comments: A great area to spend a summer morning -- shade the whole time and it's pretty near the Solstice. Stunning. Just wish there had been canyoneers stripping to add to the scenery!

Comments: Can't wait to do this one, it looks stellar! Will have to be next time, I reckon. Nice work guys -- I recall seeing the beginnings of this last year and so it's good to see it completed. Will be fun to have a go.

Comments: A fun route and relatively straightforward to protect given the easy ground -- with the exception of the very top it felt more like a 5.7 or so. A good one to practice placing gear before tackling some of the harder routes that protect with tricky gear.

Comments: Great additions to this general area! Have had a blast exploring it all recently. Thanks much all. Also, I found one of your small crowbars at the base of El Patron, or thereabouts. Put it with your stash of wire brushes, etc. on the small ledge -- you presumably know where that is.

Comments: Very cool to see this developed! I recall the brush clearing and so on last year and so it's great to see routes up. Nice work all and it's been fun so far. Will get back up there soon I imagine.

Comments: The start is what gives it the PG-13 -- it's not too hard climbing, but tricky gear for sure and not a good fall to take.

Comments: Nice place for a summer morning. Cool, breezy, water for the dogs, easy approach. Lots of clean up left to be done, but some very nice climbing with easy access. Thanks for the effort Manny et al.!

Comments: My favorite for the area so far. Still some loose blocks and, of course, endless lichen. A few hundred more ascents and it should be stellar!

Comments: Having explored this area a bit, I think it'd be great to have a map view -- like a Google Earth screen shot -- posted showing all these random different areas marked. Would help navigation a lot. Thanks Manny!
