Comments: You're just promoting grade erosion Mr. Heller.

Historical note: when the route went up, the second bolt was actually a 1/4" buttonhead that I'd cinch a wire over. Some well-meaning retro'er added the hangered bolt years later.

Comments: As with most City 12's, don't expect to leave your crimping skills behind on this one.

Comments: A great route in my book. But I'm also 6' 2" with a +2. Bring a stick clip or small cams to soften the sporty start.

Comments: Not sure why many of these routes are not included in the classics list. They're all worth doing.

Comments: Hey B. If memory serves, it finishes up the small dihedral on bolts. Never used any gear. See photo: mountainproject.com/v/10798204...

Comments: Just repeated this route after many years. Thanks to the ASCA for the nice big bolts and belays. Don't lose hope if the second pitch slabiness and foot pain doesn't suit you. The rest of the route is more positive and IMHO, way fun.

Comments: I thought this route was the crag "sleeper". Fun and techy. Deserves two stars.

Comments: 90% of this route is easier and fun. The final 10% is contrived and no fun. Luckily it can be avoided by finishing on the Our Mrs. Reynolds chains.

Comments: Great little crag. Some really good rock - in spots. Believe it or not, this is what most AF crags were like 25 years ago; chossy but with good texture. As the looseness cleans up, the holds polish up. Get it while it's good.

Comments: In light of a recent fatality, see this pic for detailed 4th pitch beta: mountainproject.com/v/11082921...

Great alpine route, have fun, but don't go on cruise control just because it's "5.8".

Comments: @Alec - what's contrived? If you must connect the dots and go from last bolt to anchors then you've got no route finding skills son!

Comments: I spent so many days here building my skills as a teenager. Some stout talent has bouldered at Moorman's. I know some of the names include Royal Robbins, Charlie Fowler, Kevin Kehoe and John Sherman. It'll always be my home boulders.

Comments: Far be it from me to influence crag names. It's a personal thing. But there is already a Narcolepsy area in Big Cottonwood: mountainproject.com/v/narcolep...

Might create confusion.
