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: Thanks for adding all these great photos from the early days of WR climbing, Cam! I think this photo and this one are Flesh-Eating Gnats at BTONP. This photo originally appeared under Thorazine Dream but I've moved it here, Flesh Eating Gnats.

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: I believe the route traverses a good bit to the right after the second roof instead of going straight up (as the photo initially depicted--updated 11/7/2016)

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.

By: Jason Halladay When: Oct 26, 2016

view comment >>
Comments: Note I changed the name of this route here from "Unknown" to "Pumping Harry" based on a suggestion from a couple climbers. The name is derived from the route's proximity to the classic "Pumping Huecos" and the crass pseudonym used by the FA as his/her MP username.
If the FA will supply a better route name, we'll update it here.

Crux bulge bolt has been moved to reduce leg-flipping potential.

Thanks Dustin. I've removed the text about that in the description and will delete these comments shortly.

Comments: Hey Dave, I'm quite sure that's the right end of the Super Hero Wall (Grey Wall). I think the view is foreshortened and you can't see the small basin between Super Hero Wall (Grey Wall) and the South Tower area.

Comments: There are two unknown routes with tan hangers uphill of the listed routes here. We didn't climb them but they look pretty moderate on dark, featured rock.

Comments: There are ~4 sport climbs way farther down, in the East Fork Box, for those into a bit more exploration and a beautiful hike. I think they are in the 5.11 to 5.12 ranges-- I've heard a bit of information. From my understanding, the FAs (Heath Bailey and Shibli Fazal?) have largely moved on from route development in the area, so I highly doubt there's an issue with me mentioning them, but let me know if there is and I'@SEMICOL... more >>

Comments: I don't recall the name being changed on MP at any time but I concur with Dave and Amy the name is over-the-top crass. I've changed it per Amy's suggestion to "Lower Tempest" from the original name "Asian Whore". I include the original name here in my comment in case someone really takes issue with the name change here on MP and would like to know the original name.

Comments: This whole situation is curious. Jason and the other people who bolted and climbed at Upper East Fork walked past this formation and made a deliberate decision to not bolt it for the last 10 years. Now it's been bolted at a PG-13 rating (whatever that means) and the hangers are repainted, by one of the main UEF bolters, but he didn't goso far as to remove them. If a subdued presence is best (I'm not convinced this ... more >>

Comments: Great! I'm glad to hear the routes are seeing some action. I think we did too good of a job of camouflaging the hardware and most don't even realize there are routes here.

Comments: I stopped by the crag this evening to paint/camouflage all the plated steel hangers and ring anchors. Things are a lot more muted now. I'm a fervent advocate of always pre-painting hardware in areas of high non-climber traffic. I've used rustoleum brown spray paint for years and it seems to hold up very well.
In cases where the hardware is in-situ, I use a cardboard stencil I cut out a couple years ago that does a decent job of blocking overspray.
