Comments: The overview google map has Arizona Dome location mis-marked. It's NE of the marked location.

Comments: Didn't realize this was a Double D route. I've done it 2 or 3 times now. Crux move is bouldering start seems harder than 5.7.

Comments: Jeff, the painted names have a long history here (at least since early nineties and probably way longer) at these USMCMWTC crags, much like the oversized anchor eye bolts that are used. I've gotten used to it, but agree it shouldn't be an adopted practice anywhere else on 108.

Imagine if they printed out topos for the hundreds (thousands?) of new trainees every Autumn. I suspect that would be more of a mess.

Comments: whoa-ho! This looks likes info/posts from someone that has put in their time at MWTC.

A fair number of us have climbed here using the painted on ratings and names, but seems like these names for each section are traditional names from the folks in the USMC. Yes?

cheers,
Munge

Comments: At about the same time this went in, we top roped the thin crack left of Choss Whisperer, calling it "Probably go, natural pro" 5.9 (no stars) and it had much looseness. We didn't think it was worth pursuing beyond a TR burn.

There is also a 'backside route' off a block that is relatively short. 5.5. Not worth doing. Only mentioned here in case someone desperately wanted to TR Choss Whisperer they could solo this line up and set up the TR.

Comments: There is a short buttress just left of Snowball. The plates look decent. Anyone already done this one? I didn't see any bolts. It abuts Snowball.

I don't think it is this one... is it?

Comments: What is the very short route name off to climbers' right of Prefab Sprout? TR'd it this week. Short, but fun.

Comments: Nice job Joe!

I'd be hesitant to compare "modern" Yosemite ratings to Pinnacles rock quality aid ratings, since Pinnacles doesn't have a modern aid rating system. You are probably right, but no where does the axiom hold more true "It's all A1 till you fall" than at Pinnacles.
