Location: Nevada : Mount Charleston : Starter Crag

Comments: I can confirm what is written elsewhere. We climbed at Starter Crag on July 18, 2017. There is a large beehive that has taken up residence in a crack in the middle of the wall. They didn't seem too aggressive so we finished the pitch we were on and then we took off.

Comments: In case anyone is interested, there is a BLM notice posted (dated March 2017) at the trailhead for Lime Kiln regarding possible upcoming improvements. It seems that a number of trees will be removed in order to accommodate a larger parking area, a vault toilet and an informational kiosk. The BLM is requesting that if anyone has comments about this proposed change they can email jjasper@blm.gov or call 435-688-3264 with questions.

Comments: A hold was chipped into the rock near the first bolt, thus making this route a lot easier. I always thought this route was a sandbag and now I feel it truly is a 5.9 pitch. It's sad to see the rock marred in this way and all climbers should consider this behavior unacceptable.

Comments: This might have been a good route at one time, but when I climbed it, it was caked in mud. It seems like the route is in a water course maybe and a lot of sand was washed down from the rim, right on to this route. If the route were cleaned up, it would be pretty good. No problems on the bolt spacing.

Comments: It doesn't look like much from the ground but this route was surprisingly fun for me. It's all there.

Comments: Fun route. The hardware could use some attention however. The first three bolts are spinners and the anchor - which is the bent wire variety - is showing significant wear.

Comments: The last three routes on the right side of the Swamp Cave are listed in the Limestone Bible as 5.10b, 5.10c, 5.10d (L-R). I agree with the book ratings. I'm not sure why there is such a discrepancy.

Comments: A 60 meter rope is not long enough to rappel or lower back to the base of the route. Either use the intermediate rappel station to make 2 raps or lower to the ledge on the climber's right side of this route. The route length is more like 125'.

Comments: I thought this route was quite a bit better than Office Party. The two 10a pitches were short but sweet.

Comments: I've climbed Dream a couple times before but when I read Joanne's comments above from a couple months ago, I was interested in checking out the route once again. The section of rock that has been updated with new bolts, the crux of the route at the top of p4, has always kind of baffled me with strange clipping stances and really polished footholds. I'm really impressed with the new arrangement which provides for more natural movement an... more >>


Location: Idaho : South Idaho : City of Rocks : Breadloaves : Upper Broadloaves - North : Route 66 (5.8)

Comments: I recommend doing this climb Route 66 in two pitches. After the first open dihedral, traverse left to the first resting ledge. There is a bolted station here. By using this station as an anchor for the top of pitch 1, you are right at the base of the slanting hand crack and a close eye can be given to belaying the crux of the route. This crux is short but really high quality. Three star climb.

Comments: Hey, Jim H, it's not hard to understand how Mountain Project works. If you can improve a route or area description, just add a comment. Or contact the original poster or the area admin. Adding a duplicate page is not the right way to go. If you follow this advice closely, I'm sure you'll receive the gratitude and appreciation you seek.

Comments: We climbed all 5 pitches today and had a lot of fun! We rappelled the route using a single 70m. Here’s the descent beta:

The station at the top of p4 is a gear anchor with no fixed gear. So from the top of p5, rappel down past the top of p4, to the intermediate rappel anchor, to the climber’s right of the route, that is mid-way on p4. From this intermediate station rap down to the bolts at the top of p3 and then continue rapping the route. Beware there is a short, easy down climb at the bot... more >>

Comments: This was such a fun route. Nice work putting it up. I linked both pitches into a single long pitch with a 60m rope. We probably had about 7 feet of rope left over. Made two single rope rappels. There is a family of bats living in the crack at the start of pitch two. Thanks again for the route development.

Comments: Great, so just delete the routes and the area you have posted. You can request from an administrator to change the name of Red Springs Rock Lower Tier to Jabba the Hut.

These routes have already been listed for 9 years elsewhere and some of the routes have dozens of ticks.

We don't need the same routes listed twice in the database.
