My first fall onto trad gear. It was a short fall, but a fall nonetheless. The climb was New Yosemite at the NRG.

Comments: A good lead. Quite fun. On your way back to the car, pull the rope and harness back out of the bag and give it a go!


Location: California : Inland Empire : Riverside Quarry : (o) Schoolhouse Rock : Victim of Gravity (5.10a PG13)

Comments: I agree that this route is not PG13; it's bolted appropriately. However, I do think this route is definitely worth repeating. It involves slab climbing, short sections of crack climbing (finger and hand), and a little face climbing. For a short sport climb, it's a lot of fun!

Also, it seems like this would make a great gear lead as well; there appear to be tons of great gear placements throughout.

Comments: BETA:

You can do the crux traverse by reaching your foot far out left to a good foothold, and stemming with the back of your head on the inside of the "head jam" to stay on the rock. It's not as pretty, but it felt less committing to do it this way.
