Comments: Jesus, this is so weird. Climb there or not, who cares. It's not world class, you knew that before you showed up.

Comments: Finally came here and spent the day. I think it does have some of the best rock for the highway but it's also got some not so great rock. As of today, April 2016, the moss is really out of hand. I guess I should have cleaned it up but I didn't. It was cloudy and chilly so we just climbed and left. We did all the routes on the left side and even there you need to be a little selective on what you yank on. The movement and sequences of the climbs were all similar to one another but very enjo... more >>

Comments: I thought pitch 4 was great. I can't understand people saying it's a bad pitch. Also, it's not sandbagged. It's totally 5.8. No worse then other solid .8's in the park.

Comments: The grade seems good, but definitely not on the soft side. The gear is there and it's not that tricky really. I feel that Sensuous Mortician (much easier at soft 5.9) has trickier gear. Most runout I ever got was after the second bolt (fixed gear goes-1 bolt, fixed pin, 2nd bolt) and that was near the top of the climb when a 20 footer would be safe, I guess. Anyway, it's a great climb, don't get too in your head about it.

Comments: yeah, that mid point anchor is off route and put up by someone other then the FA party. I think it was an optimistic attempt at a new sport route.

Comments: yes, the unknown dihedral as mentioned in the route description is yellow. there are more then one bolts on it though I can't remember exactly how many. there is also a two bolt chain anchor on top. McKenna bolted it, Kilcher FA'd it. We are still planning on finishing bolting it.

Green is unexplored, no anchors on top.

2 bolts left of Salty Dawg appeared out of nowhere and for no apparent reason. Probably something as silly as a local youth received a bolting kit for christmas and just... more >>

Comments: Yeah, the left yellow line in your pic is established and has been led. It's a long story. I think the consensus is .10+. It could use a couple more bolts. The middle line I don't think has been done. Is there a bolted anchor on top? The two black bolts appeared one year out of nowhere. No one really knows why. Seems like one of the youth in town got a bolt kit for Christmas. Yeah, far right is as you say.

Comments: Thanks for the reply. I couldn't have tried to ask it in a nicer way, more then once alluding to my utmost respect of the dude, yet people still seemed to answer as though I were being an ass.
Your answers make sense and thanks.

Comments: No disrespect to Jorge, he's a legend and I am forever grateful for his and Joanne's efforts establishing all those classic lines, but what's with the tape? Seriously, not trying to be rude, just curious. Was it just something he always did? I don't think I've ever taped up at RR. Doesn't mean shit though, I've climbed practically nothing compared to him. But, I don't remember any cracks worth jamming anywhere on that route. Maybe he did Nightcrawler earlier in the day?

Comments: Not trying to be rude, seriously just curious. How is the camera above you, if you're currently beneath it and bolting on the FA?
I realize it could be things like, you're putting in the last bolt near the top of the climb, camera dude is on top after having walked around.
Maybe camera dude is on a different route nearby? I don't know. Just curious.

Comments: Thanks! It's a beautiful place to climb...when it's possible. Sea level, south facing....
Never formed last year. Trending in the right direction now...but not there yet. Hope to get back on it. The one to the left (dagger) can form up into a solid grade 5 curtain.

Comments: Climbed the route a couple of weeks ago in late October, middle of week. We got to Pine Creek parking lot at about 6:15 and we were just beat to the base of the climb. The party in front of us rapped after the second pitch so we had no one ahead the rest of the day. One group below us that we rapped by later on. Pretty nice day. We were extremely careful rapping the route and had no problems. It did take an hour and 45 minutes to rap and from what I've heard that's about average or even a ... more >>

Comments: It looks like the guy is trying to put his third piece of pro in where he stands at about 40-50 feet off the deck. You do many .10d sport climbs like that?

Comments: There's easier access by pulling into a dirt drive off the Sterling Highway. I think it's like the first drive (driving south) on the left just past the Thanks for Visiting Anchor Point sign. There's a bunch of no trespassing signs that are easily ignored. Just walk downhill and you're at the boulder. Hooray...

Comments: Any advice on transport from airport to RR? Flying in but need a ride out to meet up with partner. Taxis, buses, etc? My buddy can pick me up somewhere close by but doesn't want to drive to the airport during the hours I'll be arriving.

Comments: I notice on their website that Canyon Vista Campground is open May 16-October but many people comment on the great winter climbing here. Am I right to assume that the campground is accessible during their off-season? I'll be traveling through that area around late April and wanted to check out the pit for a day but didn't want to waste my time if it is going to be gated up or something. Thanks.
