Comments: Breaking the Sabbath is the bolted line that breaks left from the Start of Sticky Revelations. The trad line in the dihedral above that is Book of Prophesy Var which does indeed share the anchors for the top of P2 of Sticky Revelations.

Comments: The red "XX" are rappel anchors. You could use them for the the end of the pitch, but a lot of them are in the middle of the wall without a ledge.

Comments: I like to link the first two pitches of Brain Full of Spiders and then the third pitch of Feral Debutantes or Good Plantains (both of which have a stellar third pitch) and then head over to Trilogy.

Comments: Sad news: Looks like El Amate is now closed. Went there on 2011-12-10 and looked like it was being renovated for a new business.

Comments: Most of the routes listed on this wall are a bit easier than what is listed for them. I originally listed this as .10b because that was the information given out at the local climbing shop. This one felt right in the neighborhood so I left it as it was given. But yeah, overall most of the routes are easier that what is listed.

Comments: This route is still pretty dirty, esp at the top. Those loose blocks at the top would definitely ruin your day if they decided to cut loose while you were climbing it. The crux is a little perplexing: big moves of small holds that aren't obvious. Once you clip that fourth bolt the crux is essentially over, you just have to hang on over the loose blocks.

Comments: You're definitely a sick man James. That accident must have put something sinister inside you.

Having said that, climb these things now because you don't know how long they're going to be standing. I would recommend rapping off them rather than lowering.

Comments: It's dated but, yes, there is a guide book.

Rumors are that Darren Knezek has a new one in the works.

Comments: This is actually the second canyon east of Dry Wall, but is exactly .7 miles east of the Dry Wall parking spot. jfchand, it sounds like you were in the right canyon but just couldn't find the route. It's pretty much as James said, except I didn't see anything that looked like an arete either. I had to spend about 30 mins bushwhacking around to find it and binoculars made the difference.

The route is toward the northern end of the big wall on the west side of the canyon. The route faces southeas... more >>

Comments: There are several multi-pitch routes listed here on MP:

Eight to Eleven - .11b 2 pitch
Old School - .10b 2 pitch

I hear there's a 2nd pitch to Stoic Calculus that is around .10a or .10b.

Suspect is an .11d 4 pitch route on B-52 Wall across the stream from Hell parking lot. There's also another route there that's listed ... more >>

Comments: I would definitely second the idea about rappelling from the anchors. The serrated edge at the top of the climb that the rope goes over is evil incarnate.
