Comments: Found this yesterday while getting lost up Granite creek road. The crack was probably 5.9, getting past the horizontal crack and onto the face at the top was more difficult. That crack will take a #.75, 1, or 2, (or you could double up like I did), the move onto the face is tricky but the pro is solid and at your feet before you nail the bolt on the face above.
Bolts for anchor were offset old Metolius hangars that had Tat on em. We cut that off and left a quicklink on the lower of th... more >>

Comments: Super unique climb. Limestone typically doesnt fracture this way. interesting jams, and face moves through the roof. Amazing exposure in the chimney and just an all around beautiful line.

Comments: separated from the main section of the weeping wall is a crack in a dihedral 30 feet to the right. There are two more climbs over here, 5.easy and the one on the right 5.10. The rock is sharp. Two cruxes, right off the ground an 3/4. Bolts to chains.

Comments: at the first pump house, there is a three bolt set up at the top with a sling and ring.... this could easily be topropped for a few routes up the face... found this on a scramble/excurison. not sure who bolted it, or what its rated... It looks ok.
Up the hill behind it is more broken limestone, with some potential, The rock quality is dubious and the hillside is sketchy and loose, watch for rockfall if you head up past his feature.

Comments: To get here, drive all the way to the end of the pine creek road.... keep going the road ends in the parking lot, you cant miss it.
The hike in is about 2 miles, the bridge is half way. once you cross the scree field (the trail continues through with a large scree field on the left, the end of which has a big-scree-gully on the left, you continue about 200 more yards and the pines trail (very faint) leaves to the left- we put a small Cairn there. and you cannot see the climbs from the main ... more >>

Comments: 11b sounds fair for the direct finish (to the first pitch)... I didn't realize the rout went right and climbed straight up on accident... tricky and balancy, and gets very thin! Worth a go. Definitely a tad easier than the crux on Electric shower.

To keep it 5.9, follow the contour of the roof to the in-cut gully, then move back left (you turn left at or just before the electric shower anchor).

Comments: Not the most experienced or confident offwidth climber, so I took a #4, #5, and #6 (Camalots), the #4 I placed instead of clipping the old pin, shuffled up a bit, placed the #6, then 3 feet higher placed the #5 in the back of the crack, and back cleaned the #6 (thinking I might need it again), I placed it another few feet above the 5 just because....
This sewed up the offwidth. If I were to go back, I would just take the #4 and the #5, or the #4 and the #6 (just below the bulge). Either protects... more >>

Comments: To get around to the rappel station, follow the gully off the north side of the summit and down-climb about 50 feet, then traverse left. You will follow some mellow 5th class ledges loosing some elevation and traversing west. There is a slot that you will climb what will feel like a roof, through a slot.

Keep heading west while descending over the grass ledge and around the next bulge. Continue around this curve 50 or so feet further, continuing to loose elevation. Right before this turns i... more >>

Comments: Two pitches, stopping on the ledge above the 'Signs of Life' anchors, makes for a great belay ledge to hang out on; in addition, lots of space to build an anchor in the crack before the 'crux'. It provided two cruising, trad pitches with the crux, just off that ledge moving left into the massive dihedral above. The dihedral can be climbed straight up at a very easy 5.5 and protects with a few #1 Aliens (or change directions and climb the last pitch of 'Zenotropia' ,10/c (the face on the right o... more >>

Comments: Can be done on gear relatively safely. I clipped two bolts, the first and the last, and could have probably done without either.

Comments: Did the original pitch 1 today, misinterpreted the route & ended up trying to climb that rotten flake at the traverse to the pin. Pulled a piece off and almost yarded on the precariously placed gear below me. Took a minute to get moving to the left. I'll never make that mistake again.

Comments: Slotted a nut in the the crack just below the p4-5 belay (old refrigerator block), my second couldn't get it out. New fixed gear?

Comments: RiggerMortis, +1. My second was tired and didnt want to climb this. I should have built an anchor, rapped, and reclimbed it to retrieve gear. The bolts and rap anchor are just too far away and put too much tension on the rope to pull it.

Comments: I shoved an arm and a foot in that crack and shimmeyed right up it. It takes all larger gear. A number 2 went in the bottom, and it only gets larger!

Comments: To follow the flake all the way up maybee makes this a 5.9. It does get gritty and sandy. There are two serts of anchors, one old school in front of you and a newer set behind you. There is relatively new webbing on the left bolt, but with three sections of webbing on it and two skeptical ones (bird urine soaked) on the other side, it made me wish I had more webbing on hand and a knife, to replace and rebuild. Worth the climb to the top, however, and nice to avoid that crappy traverse.
