Comments: Highly recommend more than 4 draws unless you are a fan of rope drag.

Comments: Body Jam (5.11) is a Bloom/Cosentino route circa 1999 according to Castles In The Sand. The last two rap stations you use were existing on it but we did not find any anchors on the top of the sidewalk or summit. It's unclear to me if it went to the top. Castles In The Sand lists it as 2 pitches/300ft which doesn't align with the anchors on it at all....

Glad you enjoyed the route!

Comments: Some of the coolest holds and face climbing in sand land, and it's even on pretty good rock! Get on it!

Comments: Climbed Pegasus 9/25/16 and the approach was burned out by the Fuller fire earlier this summer. We encountered almost no Mexican Locust on the approach, however, new seedlings were already popping up, I would imagine it will have grown back in a year.

The gully was quite loose as the fire burned down it all the way to the Hermit ridge. The fixed line is also gone, all that we found was a small patch of melted nylon near the tree it was attached to. It was plenty easy to scramble down the gully... more >>

Comments: You can link P1 and P2 with a 70m (maybe a 60 too??). P3 and P4 probably are best not to link, loads of rope drag.

Comments: It was pretty much completely clean to start with, just a bit of minor brushing.

Comments: Dean, its Jeff's (or was?) project. Did you do the link moving into the crack system? Looked cool just didn't get to it yet.

Comments: I thought it was quite sketchy. "Should be around for awhile" should not be an acceptable option when the flake will likely kill someone when it falls off.

Comments: Did anyone find an orange Grigri with a brown BD keylock? I think I left it around the base of Youth Warm-up on 2/16.

Comments: Anyone climbed up here recently? I just moved to the area and would like to check it out. From what I have found, it is good in winter, is that correct?

Comments: Note on the Rap. From the top of the crux pitch we rapped straight down the the face but did not find any anchors. Fortunately our two 70m ropes reached all the way to the main ledge (With a few feet to spare). 60m rope would NOT reach however.

Comments: Did someone take a draw off the 10 down stream from grey matter this last week? It was left there as a redirect for shooting photos and I was unable to grab it before it rained buckets and soaked everything. I would really appreciated it back its got camp wiregate biners and a long BD dogbone. Thanks
