Comments: Super fun and crowd free. Nice link up with killer second pitch of Disneyland (one of the better pitches in the canyon, I think). Funny little angling crack traverse to link the two-- bring a big piece or two--5.6 ish (continues up Freedom ramp past obvious gap to base of Disneyland, pitch two).

Comments: My son, Hayden, and I did this yesterday. Really fun. The condition of the first belay anchor isn't ideal, but neither is backing it up in the horizontal just above it (the whole block looks detached). As an alternative, one can back the anchor up with a cam or two (#2-3 Friends) in the horizontal crack that starts pitch two. This can be easily equalized with the existing anchor.

Comments: My son, Hayden, and I added two additional lines off the same anchor rig. Hayden did "Laidback Nightmare" V1-2. It is the line of flares, pinches, and lay-backs immediately right of the start of Red Limit. It is a bit dirty (we only brushed as needed), but more fun and harder than it looks. I added "Shared Dreams" (V3-4), which starts on Laidback and bumps right to join Simone Has Dreams at the horn.

Comments: Wow! Thanks for dragging me up the second pitch, Eric. What an impressive pitch: multiple cruxes, varied climbing, incredible position. 12a sounds right... if you have x-ray vision for blind holds and endless endurance!

Comments: Did this with Soren (11) and his uncle Eric yesterday. Way fun. Silly Eric lead 3, 4, and 5 as one. 70 meter ropes gets it fine (provided your gear is minimal and in line).

Comments: Great problem, but certainly stout for the grade. I'd say V6ish.

Comments: I did this to day with my kids and had a good time. It seems to have three variations. One is what sounds like the original description; a second stays right and up the open corner on bolts; and a third goes to the third bolt of the second option (4th if counting piton) and then does a cool traverse left to meet the first option. In any case, all start with a bolt at about 15 feet, which is high but easy to clip. Then all pass a piton. For option one, move left at the roof. Two bolts (one... more >>

Comments: Yes, I'll take credit for this...was friggin' mud-caked when I came across it in 2000 or so. Mike Hickey and I cleaned this and the rest of the boulder, sending Mavericks, 41st Street, etc. Matt Samet got on board and added a bunch later, as did Jade, Mikey Auldrige, and others.

Comments: Regarding Bob's comment above and some the the question marks re: establishment of lines, I can offer the following. In the season of '96/'97, a crew of Bob WIlliams, Greg Johnson, Rufus Miller, Mike Hickey, et al. scoured the block. We cleaned lines and climbed what we could. Kudos to Brian Capps for snagging Purity Control at a time when lots of strong climbers were trying it and coming close. Jade added Moon Child soon thereafter. Anyhow, when I cleaned the boulder, there were f... more >>
