Comments: I thought the wide option just past the double roof was a fun way to get thru the upper wall to the top

Comments: Amazing crack, I was a bit put off by the first leaning flake but that section would have been just as easy without it. The second one was really fun to work around and that made up for it interfering with 5 feet of perfect hand jambs. The wideness up top was at least 2 or 3 number grades easier than Orange Crack on Saddle Rock, so 5.5- 5.6. I believe the poo in the hueco is woodrat poo, it is in almost every hueco at the City of Rocks.

Comments: We just clipped the bolt at the left side of the roof and went straight up to the ricochet anchor, seemed reasonable albeit with no worthwhile pro. Oops!

Comments: Yeah, I thought the mantle over the top was solid V0!

Comments: Once you rap off the northeast side I would recommend not going around the south end back to the base.

Comments: 60 feet of fourth class to a V0 mantle move does not make a 5.8, sorry.

Comments: Thought this was very similar to Just Another Roadside Attraction, quality, length and steepness.

Comments: I liked this one, the pro was fine for a slab. Definitely out of character with Dr Suessvogel.

Comments: Easily the best route on this crag, it appears to get the least amount of traffic.

Comments: The crux is indeed harder than 10b, especially in the afternoon on a typically sunny day.

Comments: There are some bolts that make it much easier to start about 4 feet left of the original start, much more in keeping with the rest of the route.

Comments: Really liked this as a warmup in 2010, a 70m rope and 50' of simulclimbing got me from the dirt to the top.

Comments: Don't go to the summit at the end of pitch 4, stop atop the Lions chair, plug those two 3" cams in the wide crack at the back and enjoy one of the most awesome belays anywhere!

Comments: started up this and kept going, veering a bit left to the top (san rio crack?), it never occurred to me to stop after 15 feet. The connection was a bit grainy but not so bad.
