Comments: Sounds like you did the stand start to The Dealer, which I believe is given V2.

Comments: While the singletrack trail certainly appears faster on the map, I highly recommend using the fire road-->stone wall approach described above if this is your first time visiting these boulders. I wasted a while today looking for the elusive climber's trail and bushwhacking around before finally bailing to the fire road to follow that approach, which turned out to be very straightforward. Also, the stone wall appeared to peter out right around the point where you can look right and (barely... more >>

Comments: I also happened to check this place out for the first time today. Good problems and great stone, should see more traffic.

Comments: Cool climb, not actually sharp either. There is one crimp that I suppose that description is referring to, but you'll be thankful it's there. Give it a shot.

Comments: This is a fun problem with great movement, one of the best at Hammond in my opinion. Maybe not so much if you have thick fingers, though....

Comments: Found an abandoned camp setup at this boulder today. Heads up that there is a good amount of broken glass along the base of the main face, and there could be needles (we saw some caps).

There was a fire ring just left of the start of Bear Grease which caused some spalling on the face of the boulder. This was my first visit, so I'm not sure what the rock quality was like before, but at least one good-looking foothold on the flake of Bear Grease crumbled when weighted, and a lot of small bits... more >>

Comments: Heads up, a bat sometimes occupies the mail slot crack before the roof, the last hold before throwing to the lip. It does not like visitors.

Comments: How large was the is the dish we're talking about here? When I read "pebble", I thought I was looking for a small one or two finger pocket, but when I've looked for this line, the only "dish" I see that looks like it might be a key hold is at least 4 inches in diameter. Is that the one?

Comments: That's correct, Tim. I'll add The Snort soon, as I consider it one of the more enjoyable easy problems at Hammond.

Comments: It might be splitting hairs, but I always thought The Snort was a yard or two to the right of this. Instead of topping out using the crack that Hepatitis tops out on, I thought it followed the series of juggy flakes further to the right, around where the guidebook shows the line.

Comments: I know that the alert is still up here, but I cannot find any information on the web about closures for 2012. Has anyone heard anything about falcon closures for this year?
