Comments: It's great that you posted this info Shaun, but it needs to have some more info.

The link is fantastic, but may not always be there. And it shouldn't be required to go elsewhere for info. Could add some info on how to get to the base and what to bring?

Thanks -

Nice shot!

Comments: Just off the ground, there is a thin crack in a corner, maybe 15' long. If this is what you are referring to, then I don't think it has a name. It is about 10d though.

Comments: Nice shot.

I wonder though, would it seem even better if rotated around? This picture orientation tends to disorient me unless it is clear that the route is very overhanging. Do others have this issue?

Comments: Well, I guess it serves one right if they went up there for the view...

Anyway, thanks for the addition, and the story behind it is great.

It definitely looks like classic mountain climbing. Thanks for posting it.

Comments: Nice shot.

Brings back memories of my proudest lead. I had no pro for that off-width pitch, and the belay anchor below was two rusted, partly bent 1/4" bolts. (Had the anchor been better, we would have rapped off.)

Perhaps it could be rewritten by someone.

I like the name.

Comments: I see, thanks. That's how it looked on the Layaway page.
Well, you could list it as two separate routes, with two names.

I've been tempted to put up some contrived routes that are excellent cracks, but close to another, easier crack to cheat on. And I'd like to encourage the trend...(For trad or TRs, so one doesn't clutter the wall with closely spaced bolts.)

Also, on this topo image above, the white dots do not ... more >>

Comments: Great.
Anyway, thanks for adding these boulders. It looks like a fantastic area to go for both the climbing and bouldering.

Comments: Layaway looks like an uber-classic line here, yet only one star. So, I imagine that all these routes would be four star at other cliffs.

Now I really want to check this place out.

Comments: Oh geez, did I ever have it wrong. Thanks, that does help Andrea.

So, it is rock very close to the photographer, and it is on Liberty Bell. OK.

Comments: This photo is an optical illusion for me. The ground is bizarre -- I can't tell if it is close or far from the climbers, or even if it is solid ground. At first I thought it was water with whitecaps.

Comments: It is a double rainbow if you look closely.

Also, judging by the center point of the rainbow, it seems that the shadow we see cannot be that of the photographer.

Very nice shot.
