Comments: Bruno, what do you mean by, "the topo listed here?"

Was it the directions on this page that were confusing or something on sekiclimbing.com?

Comments: Holy crap! We figured that was a bail bolt because there was nothing above it all the way to the big ledge. Bravo, and sorry that the first two pitches of Beauty and the Beast are now kind of a squeeze job. Thanks for sharing!

Comments: The peregrine closure went into effect April 1st. The good news: the closure only includes Couch Trip, Full Metal Jacket and the four routes between them. That means the south face and 78 of the 84 routes on Moro are open year round!

Please consult their website for changes and respect the closure so that the relationship between the park and climbers stays positive.

This is a big win as the South Face is the most popular route on the rock!

Comments: Were the anchors as sketchy as the climbing? Also, congrats on tagging a rare and beautiful route!

Comments: Some people call this "Chisel Run" because the holds are so perfectly spaced that they don't believe it's natural. It was not chiseled or pinned out, but if there were one less hold it probably wouldn't go.

Really cool climb that I've only TR'd.

PS. Should've done the East Face ;)

Comments: More info on all of the routes I know about here sekiclimbing.com/buck-rock.htm...

A couple are trad.

An old low 5th class route was done on the north face but I don't know many details and the other aspects don't looks great. A route to the top would be cool and totally doable but the routes stop short out of respect for the seasonal residents of the fire lookout. There's also a lot of good bouldering, just FYI.

Comments: Alright, updated the west face topo for Moro on sekiclimbing.com so this route should be good to go.

The topo you see in the pictures on here is more detailed but it's a pretty easy route to follow

Comments: If you traverse left for about ten feet at the end of that pitch, right before the ledge, it's like 5.6 :)

Comments: As of now, the info on sekiclimbing.com is not accurate for this route. That topo is from one of the first attempts several years ago and is now outdated (as mentioned on the site). Just a heads up. I'll delete this message after I get it fixed.

It's an awesome route!

Comments: That's funny, I can't even find my original of this pic!

That's the Tokopah Falls ice climb, but the actual falls that the trail leads to is out of sight to the left. It's never really climbable, more of a pretty cascade in the spring.

Comments: Thanks for adding this, I had no idea it was there!

Maybe it should be moved from SEKI into southern sierra? That's the page containing all of the areas around Huntington.

Comments: Cool addition and map. This should probably be under the SEKI Bouldering area or Road's End sub-area.
