Comments: This is a very nice climb and would be 4 stars but for some loose rock. Poor description on MP about Brass Balls.

Comments: Administrators: It would be helpful if all of the routes in each area for Vedauwoo were in order from R to L or L to R instead of just alphabetically. Thank you!

Comments: Administrators: Is it possible to put all of these routes on Wall Street in order from one side to another? This is done for other areas on MP. It is still confusing to try to find routes. Thanks!
