Comments: I am looking for some general guidance on approach times. Would someone mind giving an approximate approach time to some of the formations or routes to give me a ballpark figure on planning? Also, what are conditions generally like in early april? Thanks!

Comments: This contrived squeeze job really detracts from the crack next to it. If the second and third bolts were several feet to the right, it might climb as it's own line.

Comments: From the anchor, with a directional or two you can toprope the dihedral to the left. Probably 12- with some really desperate tip-liebacking.

Comments: Be careful pulling the ropes around the constriction below the anchors. Even with this in mind, I managed to get mine stuck. The second time, I pulled it as far left as I could from the base of the route and got it down.

Comments: Has anyone had problems finding the walk off? I did "The Vampire" today, and had a hell of a time finding it. Actually, I don't think we ever did.

Comments: I used the small crimp just below the pocket. Is it supposed to be "off"?

Comments: That's true, they created what otherwise wouldn't exist. Unlike the route developers who chip (vandalize) existing rock to make it climbable.
