We didn't finish via the Questa Flatiron P3 route because we were concerned with the gulley being snowed in.Does anyone know if it is possible to rappel down from the summit of Flatiron onto P3 of BMPM?

I haven't done it but I think you'd need two 60m ropes and the rappel would be off-camber with potential of a big swing if you didn't stay in control. Given my recollection up there, I wouldn&@... more >>

it would be helpful if one of the administrators could at least post a pic of the toad boulder
Hi Jack. I don't think any of the NM area admins have climbed on this boulder. Try contacting Scott Beguin as he did the FAs on this boulder (and many others in the canyons around Los Alamos.)

Went the last 2 weekends and groups are arriving with dogs and without permits. The property manager is making trips daily and kicking out those without a permit. They are not being rude about it, even suggesting the parties find a cell signal, get a permit, and come back the same day.

Damn, that makes my blood boil. Simple, easy rules to follow for some great climbing and climbers can't even do that. Once again, climbers are proving they are their ow... more >>

How strict are they about the NO DOG policy?
It's a strict rule--no dogs in the valley nor in your car at the parking area.

This climb has 7 bolts now, as someone anonymously added one (last fall?) below what was formerly the 1st bolt. (Now you won't get scared on the 5.7 climbing in the first 20'.)

I've updated the route description with the new bolt count.

Comments: Thanks for adding this area, Mark. As an admin for the Spain area, I added the various sector sub-areas as the guidebook has it organized. Hopefully this will help it fill in better in the future.
If you have any information/beta to add to the sector descriptions, or want to take ownership of the new sectors, let me know.

Why is this PG-13?

I'm pretty sure the PG-13 rating is on account of the somewhat loose/chossy first pitch, not for any runouts between bolts. Since it's been nearly 20 years(!) since the FA, I'd expect the first pitch to be a lot cleaner and no longer warranting a PG-13 rating. That said, Diablo basalt seems to never fully clean up so a helmet and attention is still recommended.

Great shot Jason! And how do you keep the biners looking so shiny and new? Most impressive!

Thanks Bill. Doesn't everyone use touch-up paint on their biners after outing?!? I kid! I think they were just relatively new.

Has anyone ever looked at developing the crags across from the San Antonio hot springs? The rock looks pretty amazing with some cool features and cracks. Just wondering why there isn't any climbing there.

I've walked along a bit of the cliffs there a couple times and felt it looked a bit too soft and chossy for my tastes. But that's not to say it shouldn't be climbed or explored if you&@POU... more >>

Comments: The comments about the ratings are helpful but to truly be helpful I urge registered users of MP to give their input on the ratings of a route on the route's page. MP now displays the "consensus" grade (versus the "original grade") as the default grade for a route on the route page. The more suggested ratings, the more accurate the consensus grade.
Having done a fair bit of route development myself, it'@SEM... more >>

Comments: After seeing your comment, David, I took a look at this route this past weekend. The route you added, with the very high first bolt, is indeed Bipolar. Zoonotic is the next route left of Bipolar. The "spook eyes" holds visible in the Zoonotic photo were obvious to us and a great identifier for finding the route. The "spook eyes" holes are about seven feet off the ground and my 5'@SE... more >>

Comments: So very civilized to have independent anchors on all these routes. Thanks for the upgrades Owen and Luke. It's a great little wall with fun, featured climbing and it's nice to see the area getting some hardware maintenance.
