Comments: Agree with comment below - it makes not sense to finish a 5.8 crack line on a 5.10 sport at the 2nd crux! You stay on the crack line, then stay left of the top headwall for the right to the right, and can easily get the anchors at the top.

Comments: The top anchor is very hard to spot- you will be 50+' from the last bolt over easy climbing. Aim for the tree and the bolts are on wall to left of tree. There are plenty of places in this top section to place cams or nuts and also places in harder climbing below where a small cam (alien) or nut would be useful.

Comments: I agree with the description and comments- sustained at grade and earns its name- crux at first two bolts, yet it doesn't back down much- technical and balancy.

Comments: A really fun route! The route seems rather consistent- no distinct crux, just big hold, outdoor pumpy 'gym' climb. I don't recommend the second 3 bolt .9 pitch, but if you do it- don't run two together- the drag is extreme!

Comments: Not sure I agree with the 'classic' comments; this route is full of loose rock and lichen. The first pitch is scary run out-there are 4 (not 5) bolts before the trad section and a scary, traverse from 4th bolt to the first spot where you can attempt to place gear. Gear section is not hard, but the gear options kinda suck- just don't fall and gain next bolt section. Don't recommend leading unless you are SOLID on 10c and have good lead head.

Comments: Great warm up route! A 70 meter rope gets you to ground with 10-15' to spare.

Comments: Fun area, climbs are short but interesting. The gear is less than solid- likely due to newness of crag, all the rain this season and nature of the rock- as the saying goes- the real safety is in not falling. I definitely didn't want to fall on my gear at this crag! NOTE for dog owners: dogs are not allowed on the Hanging Lake trail- so they can't join you at this crag.

Comments: Great route. I highly recommend a minimum of 2 blue Camalots (#3) for the upper half of climb- it's a perfect fit in the lower off-width section and can also be useful in upper part as well. You can also get a #4 higher in the off width but wouldn't need if you had more blues.

Comments: There is a route right of the gully (and right of the climb listed as unknown 5.9 right of Slab-a-dab-adoo)- we didn't know the grade but climbed it anyway. The climb is 5 bolts and a consistent overhang with generally good holds. DANGER-PLease take note: the bolt hanger on the 4th bolt came off while the second was removing the draw from the 3rd bolt. This is also one of the crux moves; FORTUNATELY for us the leader did not fall on this bolt. After inspection, the other bolts look suspect a... more >>
