Comments: The area above Pony Express to Sister Morphine is loaded with loose rock.
I know of more than one teetering 200 pounder. Freeze/thaw cycles or climbers walking off higher routes can and do send death blocks down periodically. This is a popular place to hang out. Wear helmets, and keep kids and dogs well away from the base.

Comments: Great route. Intimidating, committing, fun. Best 10 at the crag.
I too would say 10c/d.

Comments: Really fun! Almost every move was good, very sustained. One of the best in the canyon at the grade. I'm 6'2", and it still felt 11ish. The pump was formidable.

Comments: I thought this route was pretty fun with a unique crux. Note, if you blow the clip at bolt 3, you would need a very responsive belayer to keep you outta the dirt. The clip can be done fairly securely, but it's worth taking the time to find the best position to do so. The anchor is two open hooks without keepers. Nice line altogether!

Comments: Gordon Light Saber (left of Jabba) is a freakin' blast. I made the mistake of linking both pitches and had world record rope drag at the top of 2. Our 60m reached the ground from the very top anchors with a little finesse. The undercling traverse is AMAZING. Take a few finger and smaller cams. Do it as 2 pitches, and you will love it! Thanks, Ken!!!

Comments: This line is fun. I did't feel any overwhelming compulsion to clip another line, and it felt like a legit mid-11 route in its own right. Bolting is great.

Comments: Start has a good nut about 8 feet up then nothing to the first bolt. The low nut would be useless when you're making the 10ish moves to the bolt, you would be soloing (the apparent rail 20 ft up has no pro). I extended the first bolt with draws, and then it's reasonable to lead and a super fun route. What a gem! The upper crux pulls fine without gear after the bomber corner gear - spicy but a clean fall. Personally, I would way rather have the first bolt 8 ft. lower to avoid the decker. It doesn... more >>

Comments: A long, fun and sustained route with very thin and very balancy crux moves. The bottom felt thin, fingery, & pumpy (mid-11), then you get a good stance just below the fat diagonal crack. Getting established on the face above and making the moves up and across (12b) to the route on the right is the crux. The 10d, while easier, is still involved. The route was reasonably well-protected at the crux. he 10d was wet when we did it and fairly run-out on the top. No point in taking gear as the opportu... more >>

Comments: Amazing route. Huge kudos, Richard! Great variety and a bold line to the very top. IMHO as good as wet dream and a favorite in CCC. P2 still goes fine without the missing flake. P2 & 3 felt equally difficult to me. Pulling directly over the final roof without touching the "x" hold would be tough. I belayed my second from the 3 bolt anchor immediately at the top of p2 to allow proper heckling and a more accurate belay - we then bumped the belay to a nice, sunny, wind-sheltered spot below p3 using... more >>

Comments: Not very dangerous but - the first bolt calls for a spotter. The rest of the route is well-protected but mildly heady. It felt harder than 11d to me. The 3 ft. wide flake seems solid, and it helps a lot. Not near as good as "not one of us".

Comments: Roads in are not closed. All roads to Hackberry drainage are in great shape. Switchbacks are great, no water at all in the road by the corral. Road up to the ant hill is unchanged- rough.

Comments: Truly amazing route.
A little (more) rap info - 2 raps are hard to find: 3rd anchor (bottom of 2nd rap) on D7 is 20 plus feet right of plumb, and you will be climbing a bit sideways to get to it (150 ft.). 2nd rap on Crack of Delight is an exact color match for the rock (tan/buff) and is on the very obvious, large ledge right of plumb at around 80?ft.

Comments: An 80m rope came up about 15 ft. short when linking all 3 pitches. It can be done with a little down-climbing. After cleaning all draws and lowering off of the anchor, it was just about long enough. 80m 9.4 rope.

Comments: As of about 3/1/14 the roads are in worse shape. The last section of road up to the saddle from the hackberry creek drainage is about the same, but now the road down the switchbacks is nearly as bad. About 1.5 inches of rain around the 1st worsened the damage caused by the big fall of '13 storms. We made it in and out with a stock Tacoma, but I had to lock the diffy. On the plus side, zero crowds...

Comments: This route can be done completely- without any stemming. The first bolt seems wise to stick-clip. First crux is bouldery when not stemmed, second crux is athletic and balancy, third crux is a very awkward strength move, fourth crux is super crimpy and foot dependent.
All four cruxes seem mid 11-ish. Four quality cruxes? 3 stars! I would give it 4 if it were longer.
I would say 11d for a tall person. Maybe 12a for someone with less reach?

Comments: Climbed this about a year ago. Approach is about 4 hours, climb is about 1 hr., deproach is about 3 hrs. The summit is spectacular, the climb is fun but- has plenty of rotten rock (endemic in this area).
You WILL have the entire summit to yourself.

Comments: Few routes deliver such sustained and varied climbing at the grade. Pitch 4 was the easiest for me on account of I have reasonable balance, and pitch 1 was sorta easy (but my solution was very height-dependent). Pitch 2 and 4 were just ass kickers - because I kinda suck at picking the right pro while pumped and reaching around a semi-blind corner! Best skill for the send is gonna be efficient pro placement (and choice), 'cause the moves are sustained. What a blast!

Comments: What a great route. Excellent face moves down low and then a superb balancy crux to arête climbing. A worthy addition! You could top rope it, but...why? Leading this route will put a smile on your face!

Comments: Get on that sucker before it falls down-goes boom. A cam or two down low might prevent a decker thus easing the R. Responds well to technique and ability to read rock. Thanks Todd!

Comments: Great variety and fun moves. I felt the crux was higher. Traversing out past the chalky, sloping pillar on the final face. Took an excellent whip here! Getting out of the low dihedral at bolt 3 is easy but reach-dependent.

Comments: I agree, one of the best at the grade. Powerful and sustained crux.
Technique pays huge dividends here as well as spotting a key rest. This would be a stout onsight. That's theory, of course.

Comments: First of all, 4 stars! A real work out with plenty of climbing at the grade. Felt 5.8+ to me. Craaaaazy cool line - 8 pitches right up the nose of a huge buttress, surrounded by the heart of the park. Approach took us 2 hrs. The trail is asphalt all the way to Emerald Lake, then you boulder hop for 1/2 mile gaining maybe 700 ft. of vertical? Path is dispersed and partial thru the boulders.

P1 is the easiest pitch on the route, good pro. The left leaning-right facing dihedral is really low ... more >>
