Comments: Good point Larry it isn't on the map. It is a simple name for the granite dome on the west edge of the pocket. Something I just called it.

The road closure is relatively new. Nice to keep the area from further degradation.

Comments: Definitely enough rock fell that it would have easily smashed the hangers flat. The chunks of rock scattered below the wall were huge.

Comments: A very committing route. My protection did not inspire confidence, especially the pieces below the 4th bolt. I found better placements above the ledge but just passed by and climbed on.

It could use more traffic to help with cleaning the route. I knocked off a bit of rock.

Comments: Had a fun time on this route. I'd be willing to clip a long/deep bolt before the first one. I was a tad nervous there. Up high it is a bit spacey between bolts and I would bring a cam or several now that I know the route. I'd add a PG-13 because getting to the first bolt in the overhang up high is critical, miss it and you may not like the landing.

I hung on the first bolt in the overhang to avoid drastic failure on my part. Sun was in my eyes...

Comments: I'm pretty sure we did the FA and the name was the "traverse" so it fits. We did a lot of the problems given goofy names by JG. This one is fine. At the time, as you can imagine, there were trees and shrubs at the base, now long gone.

Comments: The line begins near the dog; straight up. Like a drop of water.

It will be a nicer climb once it rains...

Comments: Eric you have a point. This is soft rock and the pin wouldn't be very reliable after a season or two.

Still, I would rather have it bolt and pin free. It would be for me since I can't conceive of hanging and placing gear at the crux. I'll leave it as is and wait for a 12+ thin crack afficionado!

Comments: Still thinking about a piton mid way up the crack. It would provide solid pro through the struggle and keep the pro in line above.

Comments: Brigette and I started on Steel Crazy to join the low angle crack of Rupley's. We broke the rest into three pitches but we wandered about some. It was a great finish. I tried not to pass any chickenheads on the final headwall. Great climbing.

Comments: Paul, I think your route may be up and right of the start of this one. I'll check it out next time I go.

Thanks for the props Josh. Josh Cross and Chuck Claude got the first free ascent; great going amigo!

I spent about three seasons on stealth clean mode on the rock. It had a ton of loose rock at the start; still some left. Be cautious. The lichen above is not as bad as it was, with more use it will move along.

I wanted to keep the route true to the nature of the area an... more >>
