Comments: Pretty sweet route. We ended up taking the line in the 2012 picture. I think it enables you to protect the moves to the first bolt better, plus the climbing looked to be better that way. Just an FYI that a 70m will get your feet back on the ground, a 60m might leave you up the bushy gully a bit.

Comments: Blocks mentioned above are still there. I grabbed one to the left of the anchor and it started to come out. Lower flake section feels pretty hollow as well.

Comments: Definitely some loose rock still on this one. The pod/flare portion about halfway up or so is pretty suspect. I grabbed a hold on the right side of it and a chunk about a foot across or so started flexing out. You can get through the section without grabbing it, just be aware.

Comments: Thought this was a really fun route. First couple moves have some slick feet and I wouldn't have hated having a stick clip for it, but it's doable. If you blow it, you at least have some scrubby bushes to land in :) I noticed a faint pink X on what appears to be a really good handhold around what I think was the 4th bolt or so. I knocked on it and it seemed solid, but it certainly doesn't look solid. If it comes off, your belayer better... more >>

Comments: Fun route, 6 bolts with a sporty finish. It shares the start with "Behind the Fridge," 5.10c. Left after the split is 5.10c, right is the 5.9.

Comments: I am not sure if I read this route wrong or what, but I can't find a way that this thing is 5.9. It felt a solid grade harder to me, and the bolting is not great. The 5.10s in the area all felt cruiser compared to the start of this thing. Not really worth the effort to climb it IMO when there are so many other better routes nearby.

Comments: The comment about the belay stance seems odd since everyone in our party commented how nice it was. Fun route, nothing too hard just felt like sustained 5.9 climbing.

Comments: Great cruiser route. Well bolted, to the point I climbed past the last bolt without noticing. 70m was plenty long.

Comments: Seems to have cleaned up some since the last comment. We didn't pull anything off. But like the other routes in the area it its still a little dirty. Fun route though.

Comments: It looked chossier than it climbed. I didn't notice anything sizable that was loose. Although it all LOOKS like it should pull right out, it all stayed in place. Bottom section is a bit sandy but it cleans up as you climb higher. Fun climb!
