Comments: Anyone done the right leaning crack on the nice brown patina wall up above and right of Gilligan's Island? Pretty fun despite some choss, maybe 5.9. Slung a big block on the ledge to rap down.

Comments: Pretty turdy. One cool part up top but the rock quality sucks.

Comments: Good climbing up top. Squeezed in and contrived at the bottom.

Comments: Haha. Did they give it a grade? Would've been nice if they had bothered to email to confirm route info lol.

Comments: I don't think it's in any guidebooks yet and half the routes are abandoned. Too bad, with a little more work this would be a super spectacular crag for hard steep climbing.

Comments: Good climbing afterth first bolt, crumbly junk up to there and harder than 10a. Beware the loose block near the, a few medium sized pieces for horizontals are useful.

Comments: Just about every hanger is spinning on this one, so take a 9/16" wrench with you if you're heading out to this area anytime soon

Comments: First, this is a new route that has seen very few, if any repeat ascents. Second: "a bit of seepy rock at the start that is easily face-climbed and stemmed around."

Comments: Great climbing! A few flexing holds just before and in the midst of the crux will likely have this one measuring up to its grade in the near future.

Comments: Great route! Noticed quite a few of the 316 stainless glue-ins mixed in with the new titanium bolts (which are greatly appreciated!) are already showing signs of corrosion with rust leaching into the epoxy. Why was SS mixed in with Ti--cost, I'm assuming? Replacing those is going to suck.

Comments: Definitely not an FA, poor form to retro-name and claim FA's on obvious lines at old crags. redriverclimbing.com/RRCGuide/...

Comments: Agreed with V3ish for the obvious line moving right to the arete, very good movement. The V7 listed in the print guidebook seems very contrived given the proximity of the nice juggy arete.

Comments: Meh. The true horn part is kind of weird and contrived. Climbing leading up to it on Coffin Nail is fantastic though.

Comments: Great route. One of the somewhat more important epoxied holds in the upper crux is flexing and the glue is cracked unfortunately, so well may be harder soon without maintenance.
