Comments: The three star rating is for the difficult first half of the route. The rock deteriorates above the new anchor.

Comments: She isn't very close, just an illusion. I feared a spear if I fell but it's not even close enough for that.

Comments: I added a bolt to get to the new anchor yesterday. It should be much safer.

Comments: The first part of the approach along the dirt road is above the actual canyon floor. When you arrive at the stone building (built by CCC in the 30s, as was the trail in the canyon floor you are about to enter), drop into the canyon floor heading west. From the stone ramada you can choose to continue on the trail and hike or drop into the canyon for another 5-10 minutes for some bouldering.

Comments: This June the City Parks Dept is having meetings to determine where bouldering, among other activities, will be allowed. I will publish the dates as I get them. Please join and be heard.

Contact me if you have any questions.

Comments: Hiking in Isolation Canyon is not for the faint of heart. If you do hike the ledge from FW to SWW you will walk along a rough "path" that takes you first to Politricks Wall then to the scree slope. Cross this unstable rock and crawl over some scrub Oak to SWW.

I avoid all that by going straight to SWW first. Much easier, as you say.

Comments: I was interested in it from day one but never hopped on it. Brad Mattingly did it and wasn't very excited.

Good job!

Comments: Nice slab climbing. It gets you to the final pitches of the NE Face. Saddle Crag was difficult to descend. I think it needs a few anchors instead of the tat we used.

Comments: I tried to keep the fixed draw a bit less visible at the time. A chain would suffice but I will probably use the same fixed draw type. Thanks for the heads up.

Comments: I can't recall any other anchors nearby. I think a tag line would help. I'd be interested to find out if a 70m would work which would change the length of the route. I thought it was close to 150' tall.

Comments: It is almost completely bolted. Add a #1 camalot to the protection unless you want to face a horribly long fall.

I loved this route. Great addition to the area. Heady climbing so be prepared.

Comments: Jay Anderson and I used this rock in the 80s as a nice workout. Back then the base had a nasty thorny shrubby tree and luxuriant grass on the right side. I think the greenery disappeared and the ground level actually rose. Strange movements of the landscape.

Good times.
