Comments: The prominent ridge on the left side of the frame is called Scariest Ride in the Park (5.9 X). Has seen very few ascents and at least one fatality. Listed on this site in the area called "Suicide Overlook" in the Virgin Canyon.

Comments: Hey, Rob! I figured if the guidebook author was unable to find a name, it must be lost. I think a name is better than dozens of "unknowns", and sometimes if you take the liberty of putting a name, someone comes out of the woodwork to correct you with the right info, and voilà! Hopefully that happens, and the correct history and information won't be lost. If you don't like it though, I'd be happy to change or delete it. I think it's fitting :)

Comments: Sketchy. If the left piece were to fail the knot could slip apart.

Comments: Frosty, I'm assuming its the left line since it says to climb up onto the flake. On the right feature, the flake meets the ground.

Comments: Watch out for loose blocks on the upper half and the alternate bolts to nowhere on p7.

Comments: The first pitch was originally led on gear. I doubt anyone's ever done the whole thing on gear.

Comments: I think this area is most commonly known now as the "Moraine Park Boulders". That seems like a better title for this section to me. Since there are currently only a handful of problems, it might be easier to have 'em all under that heading. Most of the boulders have only one or two problems anyway.

Comments: 12 bolts. The PG13 rating unwarranted I think. Only a couple decent runouts with super clean falls.

Comments: We did some significant cleaning of plants and blocks today and the route is looking much better. Didn't see any "death blocks" on the first pitch so I'm assuming it has been trundled.

Comments: That route is called Señor Sucio and I believe it was put up in the 2014/15 season, but not sure by who.

Comments: We went up last week and did some trail work up to the cave. The trail is now significantly easier to follow and marked with a bunch more cairns.
