Comments: Tricky and pumpy. Protects ok, nuts and small cams.

Comments: Surprisingly this short fun route protects "ok", in the small discontinuous seams and cracks.

Comments: As a lead I think it's far better route to edge slightly left at the loose flakes and go up the thin seam - without pulling on and climbing past the flakes. Perhaps on TR it doesn't matter that much, but on lead those flakes are terrifying.

Comments: "This climb protected by Massive Wasp Nest."

Actually we climbed it anyway... PG13 due to wildlife.

Comments: Ha! Remo, you'll have to wait for the full length uncut drone GoPro film of this epic line to find out how that ended up. I was just cleaning the cobwebs off for Ian when I climbed it.

Comments: I thought maybe this could be done with just a pad like "I See the Bucket" next door, but the moves are pretty insecure up high and a fall would be bad.

Protects ok with small cams and nuts.

Comments: There are rattlers in the talus field below this wall, FYI. Jake nearly stepped on one on the way down. Not far below the boulder problem "Young Eggs".

Comments: I imagine my house will be little more than rubble in 700 years. Maybe not even rubble. Amazing find.

Comments: If it's not safe yank it. Modern gear can fit in a lot of tiny places that the old school used the pins for.

Comments: Cool. I do that for Perfect Medium. Been trying that one more or less annually for 10 years, every time I'm in that area. If I ever hit the hold I'll be so surprised I'll probably fall off.

Comments: Yah Jon these are gone. I scrub them off but I'm sure I miss one here or there. I assume others scrub them too -- in 10 years climbing here I've never once been on a climb and seen leftover tick marks.

Comments: Cool route. PG13 if the shallow #0 C3 holds a fall at the crux -- would it? This wall is really nice and secluded. Approach is kind of a bitch though...

Comments: Nice little bluff and nice climb. Unusual for DL in that the crux is at the top. I took a couple kinda big whippers onto small nuts before finally sacking up and not botching the finishing sequence on lead.

Comments: One of these esoteric threads on here said it's not unusual to generate 5kn in a 10 foot fall. Less talk more climbing. It's as safe as most DL leads. Bring a pad if you're inclined.
