Comments: Heads up: If you're planning to rap in from the summit of Monolith, or top out and lower off the summit chains, you'll need a 70m.

A 60m does reach the ground from the route anchor, ~30 feet from the summit chains. So, a pendulum over for an intermediate rap station is also an option.

Jimmy Ray's Guidebook also lists Fred Mitchel as a member of the FA/FFA/bolting team

Comments: The 'Tufa' described above is either missing, or a poor description. The start of the route looks more like a big slide, big slab of not very steep limestone.

Otherwise, awesome route with big fun moves separated by good rests... kinda like four "one-move-wonders" stacked on top of each other.

Comments: Visited the area for the first time yesterday, using the MP iphone app, and it was still very hard to determine which route was which. Even other climbers who claimed to climb there often weren't really sure what they were climbing.

Given the way people reference Guerilla Drilla and Chopping Block, some better descriptions of these route locations and some quality beta photos would be high-value, if any locals could provide for the community. Thanks!

Comments: Also, catches afternoon sun about halfway up.

Looked like a nice ledge above the chains. Would be fun to belay from above and have lunch. Great view.

Comments: LOCATION
The route is on your left as you scramble up into the pseduo-canyon. Scramble up an exposed (30 ft tumble if you slip) mini-ledge to the first bolt. The route starts directly up from the right edge gulley of the belay ledge.

BEWARE
Pretty easy and decently fun BUT you definitely want to be attentive on this route.

I knocked off two baseball sized pieces of choss on a casual lead, narrowly missing my belayer. One actually hit her foot. Be attentive.
