Comments: If you plan to do the second pitch make sure you feel very solid on 5.9. There is no gear for the first ~12ft and only a nail drive bolt and a rusty pin until the left facing corner at ~30ft. The climbing after that is sustained 5.8/5.9 face with good gear, but far apart.

The rap tree at the top had good slings but the tree is not healthy and questionably safe to rappel off. I just barely made it from the tree to the Raunchy rappel tree with a 70m and a pendulum to get back to the ledge.

Comments: I was able to do this in a single pitch with a single 70m. The rope drag wasn't bad, but I placed minimal gear and extended with double-length slings until the left facing dihedral.

Really great route :)

Comments: Getting here is very difficult due to trail finding. Logging and burning have made the initial trail extremely tricky to find. It took my partner and I over 2.5hrs to get to the crag, although about 1.5hrs of that was looking for the trail.

Beta that might help as of 7/22/2017:

1. use the parking coordinates Christine posted above (38.804400, -120.009850)
2. walk to the other side of the street and look for a cairn less than 20ft from the road
3. the next cairn is southeast on/near a medium si... more >>

Comments: Great crimp line marred by the dirty unclimbed finish. Thought about going for the topout but it is very mossy and very high up. Those looking to topout should plan to bring rope to clean the top.

Comments: This is directly behind the glory hole cave. You'll have to either walk around or scramble up the large slab that makes up the left side of the cave to find it.

Comments: Just wanted to emphasize that this is all the way climbers left, the second to last boulder in the area. You need to do a small amount of bushwhacking to walk up to it from the overgrown trail.

Also, I think description is slightly off -- Zealand does not have a reinforced landing, Tick Tock Boom does though.

Comments: Great route on above average rock for the area. The stand is ~v4- and worth doing on its own!

Also, I couldn't fit through the hole. I think trying to grovel through it actually detracts from the route, but to each their own.

Comments: This is most definitely R. After the shallow right facing corner right at the beginning of the first pitch there isn't any gear until you reach a rusted piton and a shallow horizontal that barely takes a #1. That's about 30ft (?) from the last piece. A fall before clipping that piton would mean a nasty swinging factor-2 fall. Thankfully the crux of the face section comes after the gear. After the sketchy stuff you get safe technical face climbing that leads to a cool short splitter crack a... more >>

Comments: Hey Max, good to see someone was trying it. I forgot to take credit for moving the tree, I finally took care of it this past winter. Still can't move off the start of hardest button though...

Comments: Anyone heard of a climb called "Twilight Army" (v9)? Might also go by "Kyle's Problem". Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Comments: I was trying this a couple weeks ago and found many of the draws on the prow to be in very bad condition. I saw Rajiv wrote a couple years ago that there were steel permas on this, any reason they were taken off?
