Comments: Only climbed the first pitch - it is a fun 10b in its own right. A good option if Squid Kid is taken.

Comments: Once again, I have misplaced the old hand written guide I had. I got tired of using lame names, so made some up. If you know better, let me know!!!

There are a few other lines in here that I have heard of (trad adventures) or guessed at by the random bolt or pin, but the juice didn't look worth the squeeze, so I never did it. These lines should give you a good feel for the place though.

Comments: There are 4th class/easy 5th class lines extending up the walls above this cliff that see the occasional traffic, and there are a few undocumented climbs that we have never bothered to try mixed in here as well as some random bolts for old mixed routes that rarely come in. I used to have a hand drawn guide to the place, but have lost it over the years. Please feel free to correct names if you know them!

Comments: I'm reporting the grade as claimed by the first ascentionist. Many folks feel this route and the one to the right are the same grade ;)

Comments: This is a super fun finger crack. Truth in advertising here- I've only TR'ed it, so I'm not sure how accurate the grade is, and I'm not certain I'd ever be able to lead it to know for sure. Take the rating as a "suggestion"! Regardless, have fun on it!

You can access the top anchor to hang a TR on this route and the arete by climbing the Unknown Acute Dihedral and exiting right around the arete as described on that climb.

Comments: A super fun route. The first pitch is not short and very memorable, but the main pitch is fantastic with 2 roofs and great climbing, mostly hands to tight hands but with some wide stuff too plus protection options in thinner cracks nearby. I brought singles from black Alien to old #4 plus nuts and 2 #1s, 4 #2s, and 2 #3s. On the main pitch, I used almost all of it and even with the belay higher at the stance ~20ft further up the route from the big belay ledge, but I'm a ... more >>

Comments: Kevin, it takes a time or two to dial the approach, and then it's pretty easy. It can be one of those "magic" trails that only works well in one direction, usually outbound! Where the cairns run out, look for some tree blazes. As to that elevation, that was not done by me, but if you bring a GPS (lame, I know...), it should be a good bit easier.

The bolts you saw are now all in and the FA complete (on the last try of the year- super big props to Andrew McClure!). He says its awesome. Too hard f... more >>

Comments: Lutz, glad you like it. It is a little lamer than that. I used the route finder search to return all 10s in the 4-5 star range. Then I selected all the routes and copied and pasted them into Excel. If memory serves me correctly I cleaned up the data and either used a pivot table or some countif functions to get the counts by crag. Then converted the graph to a jpg and uploaded it. Sounds about like it was. Something to kill time with on a lame day! I think I get geek points even if it was not ne... more >>

Comments: After climbing here since the early 2000s, I have to say this area has seen some great development in the past few years. Some very quality routes have been put in with great hardware, and the poison ivy is no longer the issue it once was. Pretty much all routes are accessible to both lead and top rope climbers. The handful of developers who have done this deserve props for sure!

Comments: Well, just for laughs, here's a different experience. I tried to climb this over the weekend but a couple speaking what I think was French was on it, the dude valiantly grunting and thrashing his way upwards in shorts and a tee shirt. I was low on time so moved on. What are the odds? I mean from what is posted above Im probably the unluckiest climber ever!

Comments: A reall good route overall with increasingly strenuous climbing. Fairly well bolted except maybe that last one. There are some disconcertingly hollow flakes on it though. Pull down not out! All that being said, it's probably one of the better routes in the area at the 5.10 grade.

Comments: I was setting it up for my kids and had a hold break. First time I've ever whipped on an 8. I left plenty of other suspect holds for others! Don't clean this on rap - the rope pull can be tiring due to anchor placement.

Comments: I'm kind of surprised to see that everyone, but me thinks this is 5.10. It makes me feel like a pathetic climber, but hey, that's cool. Just want to put that alternate opinion out there for folks. Great route.

Comments: We placed the rap station so it would be possible to check out the wide, overhanging crack continuing up the face. I'm probably way too pathetic to probably even try (and too poor to have enough wide gear!). Have a go! I double dog dare you....

Comments: This was a really fun route. As I smeared that face leading past the last bolt I sure felt off route- no more bolts, no obvious pro but it ended up protecting surprisingly well. Just follow the features and it will all work out fine!

Comments: I was pretty unimpressed by this route. Blowing the second clip would mean serious ground fall potential and its no gimme if you are climbing at your limit. Also, there are a few disconcertingly hollow flakes on the steep part that are mandatory holds and as you pull over the lip to the easier terrain, most of the big holds are hollow. In its favor it is a nice change from slab. Im not sure Id bother doing it more than once though.

Comments: The left trending semi-detached column-like feature just left of the quarts dike/groove feature where the face steepens is awful hollow. Its easy not to use that feature but be careful. Other than that, a fun route.

Comments: The bolted anchor is off to climber's right a good 15 feet or so from the route. Its a good enough route that it could stand to have an anchor of its own.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route- it had good feet! It climbed a lot like a non-desert route which was a fun change of pace. The difficulty seemed to stay pretty moderate with one or two more strenuous moves at the top.

Comments: The wide middle was rattle fists but not quite offwidth for me. A good way to get worn out prior to the thin finish! Worth doing for sure. I had 2 #3.5 camalots and was thankful for them.
