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

Comments: Fun second pitch! Crack takes gear fairly well, took medium sized stoppers and a single set of cams from #.5 - 2, placed a stopper down low and a #.5 up higher. Could have placed another #.5 or #1 if I wanted to really sew up the crack.

Comments: Stout 10d! Feels just as hard as some of the 11's at the trailside wall.

Comments: bomber nut placement down low before entering dihedral, and an "ok" #2 in a shallow spot a little higher up. Don't really need that much gear for this short climb though.

Comments: This is a rad route! Maybe only 2-3 10a moves on it though, the rest is cruiser jugs on less than vertical terrain.

Comments: Made the same assumption as Mr. Todd- from the ground, it looks like a cruiser arete route. While it's not entirely difficult, it is sustained and core-intensive climbing between well spaced bolts.

Certainly fun though, so make sure and try this one!

Comments: This is a great route! Fun slab section, rest, then a steepening jug haul that seems to thin out a bit at the top.

This is a sweet little route with fun movement

Comments: Fun lower section, pockets at 1/2 to 3/4 height are a tad sharp

Comments: Tough boulder problem to start things off, difficulty eases up a bit afterwards, but still stays on you until the top

Comments: Really reminds me of the cobble climbing in Maple Canyon, great routes on this one!

Comments: One of the slopers above the HPLs at the bottom broke on me, doesn't seem to change the difficulty at all though.
Wear those helmets kids

Comments: 11- seems appropriate given the tough start of the route, but it eases up substantially after the first few bolts. Shimmy-ing up the coconut tree is probably in the 5.8/9 range.

Comments: Hardest moves on the route feel 11d, maybe 12a, but the cruxes(the start and finish IMO) are separated by easy climbing and tons of rests, including a no-hands rest after the roof traverse.

Comments: Easily the best route on the wall. Kinda bouldery start leads to big moves between sinker pockets

Comments: Fun route with a variety of climbing throughout.
Seems like the ledge on the left has cleaned up quite a bit- didn't notice any loose rock.

Comments: Crux is the first few moves, after that, you can sit back and enjoy the jugs and great movement.

Comments: Found a crashpad sitting next to Ribcage this evening. We waited around until dark to see if someone would come looking and no one ever did. Picked it up in case someone with less-honest intentions found it first. just hit me up with a description of the pad and you'll get it back.
