Comments: IDK, once the book is in people's hands its all over anyway haha. Folks should just know that it is very important to keep well off the road if you head out there. Also stay out of the lot and out of the way if there is work being done on the parking lot project. I will hold off on adding descriptions at least until the book drops.

Comments: My understanding is that the pit and Corral areas had not been added/updated so to avoid too much attention as we got the parking area worked out. I am happy to write up some of the new stuff if it's time. Mark? Ward? we still waiting?

Ps. I Just added a new 5.10 today that wont make it in to the book :X

Comments: Will- your comment makes sense.
Mark- I don't play that game haha. But for real, has it gone bare foot. That would be crazy.

Comments: I just took the R rating off the description as it sounds like the new bolt has fixed the problem. For some reason I can't seem to get rid of the bouldering grade however...

Comments: Thanks for chiming in. I do great with slopers but not as well with hard compression. That is my issue I think. Such a fantastic route though. well worth flailing on until i'm ready.

Comments: Thanks Will, That makes sense with my experience on it. Sounds like you did what I tried but with more success haha. I did have the little incut undercling in my right hand but had very little for my left and it was a big move to the next (shitty) crimp.

I was working it on self belay TR this time. Years ago I tried ground up and hit the shutdown moves at the same spot. I guess I need to get back to it on a good day... and get stronger haha.

Comments: I got on this today to figure out the moves. I am at a loss as to how I could make it feel close to 5.12d... I typically do routes in this difficulty range in a few tries. I couldn't even get a couple of the moves individually on this one... The beta I was working with I feel would be in the 13c/d range. Seemed like solid 5.12 climbing with a V9 move in the middle. What magic am I missing here? I admit I was a little low energy today but dang... Beta please? Will?

Comments: Torie grabbed some footage of me running a cold lap on this thing a few months ago. finally got around to posting it. Sorry I didn't cut out the long rest while I warmed up my hands just scoot through that part and it might just be fun and informative haha

Comments: Nothing fancy this time but a lot of folks have a hard time in this one so torie was kind enough to shoot a bit of footage. should be helpful in the beta department... sorry for the lack of editing. I was having technical difficulties and just decided to post it up as is (fast forward through the resting ;)

Comments: I climbed this one yesterday and caught some video of it. I really enjoyed the technical aspect of the climbing. The precision footwork is just... YES!

Comments: its before you get to the corner and the tree (if its the one i know). It's been loose a long time. My vote would be for controlled removal.. or just careful climbing

Comments: It does seem to be one of the worst anchor situations on the hill. Might be that its a lower priority because many folks don't use the anchor. I don't like the rope running over that edge so I tag the anchor and lower/clean it off of the last 2 bolts below the roof which typically have leaver biners on them.
Also could be that there is so much to do they just haven't gotten to it yet. Thanks for the reminder. I'll talk to my people haha.

Comments: I just loved the look of this one as I was walking by. It didn't look too bad to me so I got after it. It turned out I only had 2 cams on me small enough to fit in the thin crack. So I ended up reaching around right and protecting in the crack over there. I also used a lock or two out there before getting back in to the corner proper. It was a really fun mental puzzle and a hard onsight even wiith my slight variation. As I was lowering down the route I did reclimb the part I diverted around... more >>

Comments: The "Half Premium" climbs the corner with the white streaks on the left side of this photo. This shows the crux section but there is another 10 feet of steep climbing on good holds to gain the ledge... clip anchors there or better yet keep climbing to the top of the "Full Premium"!

Comments: The Premium climbs the pair of corners in the center of this photo. The 12c first half ends at the obvious rest ledge but if you stop there you miss the best climbing. Tech and pump your way up the nice clean second corner and on to the top of the cliff to make sure you get the full value of this spectacular climb.

Comments: I finally took a run on the completed Rise Against this morning. Felt nice to not have to do any work on it. Other than a couple of small crumbles it is was in really good shape.

Over all I am very happy with the route! My only after thought is that I would have placed the last bolt before the roof about a foot to the right. This bolt was in the right spot until I had to remove a foothold that could have detached over time. If the bolt presents an issue I will replace it with a closer one, hit... more >>

Comments: Just a quick year and a half and the above concerns have been alleviated. Today I took one run up to hang draws and re-sus moves (and figure some new beta to get around the wet patches), took a 30 minute rest and sent it :)

side note: this was the last sport route I hadn't done on the Pru... Having checked thoroughly I can say this cliff is STACKED with quality climbs. Once the ravens move out I guess I have to climb "Losing My Life". That should be fun!

Comments: I spent another 3 hours cleaning this rig this morning and I think it is all ready to be enjoyed.

I had no idea the can of worms I was opening when I started this one. I had to remove a ton of unstable rock. Now I can say the upper half of the climb (the hard part) is pretty solid, The first 4 bolts or so has poor rock quality but is no harder than 5.5. I have done what I can with it but please climb with care. It came to a point where it seemed if I kept removing what ever I could I would end... more >>

Comments: Yeah, like heal in closer right? that's how i've been doing it lately... there is a little grippy patch. I still like the toe beta too though... such a great section on an amazing route.
