Comments: One large piece (5 or 6) for the top for sure, unless you want a runout on top where it gets off-widthy. It's not that long of a route that you can't carry an extra piece (this ain't alpinism).

Comments: I especially liked the part where John thanks me for adding coordinates and improving the page. Just a stand up guy with solid manners.

Also, I want to say 'Hi' to John when he trolls me again later (as he is assured to do).

Comments: ...this whole site is devoted to beta and I thank the pic is great!!

To all the old grump grumps -- if you don't like it the don't click on it; pretty simple. You may think it's too much beta, but others may have differing opinions. I hope that doesn't cause you too much of a micro heart attack.

Comments: Climbed this last year. The rock and location were great for our group. There was little to no traffic on the road and enough space that we didn't need to stand in the road to belay.
The bolts and holds were all fine and I highly recommend this for a group looking to tick some moderates.

Comments: This gate (and the No trespassing sign) are gone. be light on the trail but this is the best way to access the crag.

Comments: Good news, The current signage allows for parking at this spot!! I don't have a pic, but its only a 2-min drive from the suggested parking so very worth your time to drive up and verify this comment!

Comments: With some careful scrambling it is possible to scramble to the anchors for most of these routes and hang a top rope.

Comments: The location (mapped coordinates) for this wall are wrong. They should be a bit more north. Sunnyside is the same formation as Parking Lot wall just follow towards the right to get to the climbs.

Comments: This route begins up the arete and then traverses ~15 feet right to the shared anchors with the 5.7. The traverse is not bad, but is made awkward by the fact that the bolts are much lower than would be expected (at hip height or lower).The bolts are fine, but just remember the traverse line is higher.

Not a suggested climb for a new 5.9 leader due to unusual bolt placement.

Comments: Thanks John. It was very hard to notice the other listing since no area name was provided (or did not match the guidebook) and there was no location provided (I added one to improve the page).

Comments: The undercling version is far better climbing and far better protected. I strongly recommend it!!

Comments: Ben; thanks for the added info. I am pretty tall and lanky so I tend to undergrade big moves. But I really liked the route.

Comments: Steve123 - I was there in Aug 2014 and the rappel anchors was in at the top of Revoked. There is very mild scrambling to get to it, but a clean, easy rapp.

Comments: It is very easy to combine this route and any of the routes above it into one single pitch. In fact that's a better way to climb Mailgia's Arete.

Comments: Alternate (easier) Approach -
Walk past stumbling blocks and towards Ghetto Wall. Turn left just before the trail drops steeply (8 feet of hopping down rocks). The trail you are turning onto should closely hug the wall as it climbs up the hill.

Comments: Go up to the left of the bolt and then traverse right-wards. The rock under and on the below right of the bolt is chossy and breaks off.

Comments: 1) The first bolt was solid when I climbed it this weekend. 2 & 3 were spinners, but the terrain was easy. The crux bolt is solid so I felt safe pulling the crux. The crux is very height dependent and clipping the crux bolt will be hard for anyone 5'6" or under.

2) The crux is very height dependent (but fun). I'm 6'1" and pulled through just fine. My 5'2" partner struggled a lot more and found the route much more burly. I'f you're tall the rating is more like 5.9. Crux was fun though.

Comments: Fantastic route to teach trad-leading on. Bolts right next to the crack. Also, not a 5.7, I think 5.4-5.5 is more accurate, but it was fun.
