Comments: Looking for climbing partners for DL (trad or boulder) for June 18 and/or 19

Alternatively, what's the best (roped climbing)guidebook for the area?

Good route to get limbered up

Comments: harder(and scarier) than Michelangelo, in my opinion

Comments: This is a great route! Upper section is amazing, be sure to keep going all the way to the top.

My two cents on the crack: Since the very bottom is flared downwards, getting off the ground requires some "thuggy" moves. Those with good upper body strength can lock off on a single good jam and poor feet to move upwards without much problem. For those lacking in the arm department, the bottom may seem quite tricky.
With that said, after you're off t... more >>

Comments: Fun boulder problem at the start!
Gotta love the ice cave during the warmer months, nice relief from the sunnier routes around the corner

Comments: PERFECT ROCK!!

Steep and crimpy, but over quickly

Comments: Bottom section was tougher than I expected, but not too difficult once you have the beta. Find the pockets that work and keep moving upwards to the easier slab. Love that starting feature.

Probably just a super techy 11d, but I could see it as 12a, especially next to the one move wonder on the Barnum Route

Comments: some awkward moves off the ground, then again towards the top(if I remember correctly).

Seems just a touch hard(awkward) for 5.9, but I wouldn't call it a 5.10 either. Good route to start or end the day on

Comments: Feels very sustained until just past the middle where you find better resting holds.
Don't think any move on the route clocks in at 5.11, but I definitely felt the pump. Wasn't as fun for me as Euro Trash, but to each their own

Comments: One of my favorite warmups in FCR. Steep throughout the entire climb with fun, giant holds everywhere. Long runners will help keep the rope from zig-zagging too much

Comments: Climb the easy pillar to the final bouldery finish.
Top half of the route seems clean now, but still sees very little traffic compared to the rest of the routes.

The crux section is tricky(hard to read) but well protected.

Don't let old comments discourage you from hopping on this.

Comments: This is a great route. Fun slabby finish on crimps and pockets. A few long draws help keep the rope straight

Comments: 5.8 jugs to an awkward move at the chains. Good to warm up on if routes at Big Kahuna Pillar are crowded.

Newer sport climbers might z-clip the anchors, so be on the look out

Comments: Great route to simul-climb. easy, consistent climbing, plus it REALLY helps reduce the rope drag

Comments: Super fun route that's also quite photogenic! Steep jug haul that stays on you until the end! Athletic climbing that feels easier than many of the other 12's in the area

Comments: Irrelephant-
yes, you can climb at night. you'll certainly get some better friction on the rock once the sun goes down.

Comments: This will probably go at somewhere in the v3-5 range. Didn't get around to really trying it last season... hopefully it'll go this upcoming summer

Comments: sit start bumps grade up significantly, but as with all cracks, depends on the size of your fingers. The rest is cruiser 5.8/9 climbing

Comments: Not a terrible route by any means. Good gear, plenty of face holds and restful ledges for the budding trad leader.

Rapping down from the tree at the top led to a stuck rope, consider rapping from pet cemetery and scramble over if you want to lead Mary Ann, or have really long slings

Comments: This is a great route with several fun and cruxy sections.
Last crux (to me) came right at the last bolt with a potential to smack onto a small ledge if you were to botch the clip.
If red pointing, it's nice to hang a long draw on the last bolt so the clip can be made from the side pulls
