Comments: We only did the 1st pitch of MA1. This description says the 2nd pitch is climbers left. What route goes climber's right? There is at least one bolt that way.

(FWIW, we ended up getting on this via Perhaps and building an anchor at the bottom of the lieback corner)

Comments: Burly!

I think it is harder than .11a due to the pod, but who am I? Not an offwidth climber, that's for sure!

Comments: Really fun / aesthetic slab route to do while you're waiting on other climbs to open up in the area. Not sure why I never see anyone on it.

I gave it an 'R' rating for the high first bolt and the back breaking boulder that you'd be falling towards if you goofed. Not sure about the nut placement as commented above, I've led this twice and any pro would be far left. However, if you're a 5.8 slab leader, look for a placement because a fall would be bad before the first bolt. There are one or... more >>

Comments: Why risk it? Just climb somewhere else or take a day off.

Comments: You can lead the 5.8 to the right and traverse to the anchors above this route to TR it. Cheers,

Comments: From the topo, it looks as though you need two ropes to rappel or am I missing something?

Are there two pitches of rap rings or just one set at the top of the climb? I have one 60m rope and am flying to visit this area. Maybe I can't do this climb?

Comments: Are you guys using a 60m rope? This description says 85 ft which puts me in comfort range for rappelling. My guide book says 100 ft, which doesn't.
