Comments: Awesome route, must do. Brief low crux then crazy-steep jugz & kneebars

Comments: I would probably take a brush to clean this one up if trying to repeat it, but the effort would be well worth it.

Comments: Great moves. Both cruxes are marred by difficult-to-hang bolt placements, but very good climbing nonetheless. The open shuts at the top are about 30-40% worn through and will need replacement soon.

Comments: If someone wants to add 2-3 bolts to the bottom of this to make it all sport, that would be fine. The holes are already drilled actually, although I patched them with epoxy and sand.

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: 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.
