Comments: It's a little hard to see the trail here, or figure out how this will look on most other days. But it's a beautiful picture.

Comments: Donald, I have modified most of your routes to reflect that they are currently only described as TR routes. For that reason, I also removed safety ratings.

In addition, I added (TR) to your first-ascent claims, as that is what you have indicated your style was for those first ascents.

Comments: Similarly to your Millbrook routes -- was your FA done on toprope?

Comments: Major rockfall from the area of P2 occurred on 10/29/2016, due to rappelling activity. Luckily, it seems no one was hurt.

Comments: I can see where the move at the initial crack would be much easier with a 6' reach, but one thrutchy-ish move with my reach (5'4") got it done.

Comments: It does eat nuts. But for the reason shown in the picture, a cam as a first piece is still a good idea.

Comments: Yes -- I think the stars do mark bolt anchors. And thus needs updated ... I might remove those lists, now that users can sort routes, and they've become cumbersome to maintain.

Comments: aww, thanks :). It's a good outlet for my need to tinker.

Comments: The list above, with (**), was transcribed from the Williams guide (and populated with links to MP entries when they appear) by John Peterson, I think. It was originally a good reference before MP had the ability to 'sort' routes, and before I'd split the Trapps into areas.

Comments: This is the second pitch of Gunklandia, not the Direct Variation.

Comments: It's pretty obvious, but: the first pitch is a full 30m and the hardest moves are off the ground, so take care of the follower appropriately.

Comments: Really high quality. I found the leftward moves under the overhang to be fairly difficult; it looked like you could possibly make face/slab moves about 10' left of where I was at that point.

The rap is almost a full 30m, so make sure you're at the middle of your rope.

Comments: Surprisingly high-quality climbing!

The rap is almost a full 30m, so make sure you're at the middle of your rope.

Comments: ... that's because you're doing it way too high. Move right with your hands where your feet are in this picture, and it's trivial.

Comments: This is fantastic picture, with the wide perspective and the color.

Comments: No anchor on the tree as of Memorial Day 2016.

There is better gear than you might see from the ground, in the horizontals.

Comments: Pro is good but not great; can be tricky to get in the higher traverse. Watch out for loose stuff.

Comments: Routes are all pretty close to full 30m here -- you may want to carry extras in the finger/hand cam sizes.

Comments: Eyesore is in the list of routes to the left on this page -- its entry is here. If you mean 'why isn't it listed as a 'classic climbing' route?', the answer is that the 'classic climbing' list is chosen not by humans but by an algorithm of MP software, according to stars and number of ratings. Go add a star, if you adore it!
