Comments: This is a fun and chill outing for the non-discriminate climber. As you may have read, some folks don't enjoy the scrambling and loose rock associated with this route. Personally, I found it to be adventurous and an all around good time.

Zane Edwards and I climbed the first 4 pitches solo. If 5.5 soloing is within your abilities, then I highly recommend it. Then we roped up for the rest of the climb, well, mostly.

See post by leftanglebeta.com for great info. I printed a few of his pic... more >>

Comments: Today I noticed more anchors have been set while I was venturing at the top of this crag. Anchors were set at the top of Coffin Crack. Anchors were set 10 feet right of the Rufus' Roof Variation (see beta photo). Anchors were set about 30 feet to the right of Rufus' Roof Variation. I climbed the Rufus' Roof Variation up until the last 15 feet where I wandered right towards the anchors. Probably 5.6.

Comments: Climbed this route today, and anchors were at the top of the climb with rap rings (no chains). Anchors are not accessible from above unless you have some gusto to downclimb to them. Thanks to those replacing some of the bolts in this area.

Comments: If you're going to take credit for posting an area then at least give directions to the route. Where's the trailhead? What kind of approach am I looking at?

Comments: Let me explain. After a long climb at Lumpy Ridge there was a bit of bushwacking back to the trail. Suddenly, a dead tree branch came out of nowhere and ran into my head. Yeah, that's it! Flesh wounds on the head bleed a lot.
