Comments: Nate,

Tightrope is basically just south of the mossy monster descent, at the far left end of the steep wall.

Comments: Nate,

Everything climbers right (south) of Bonsai. The route CO doesn't really exist so Bonsai is the best estimation.

Comments: Johngorman Gorman, I wonder of that is a farmed ice route? There is one ice route 50' or so left of Ramp Dinner I think.

Comments: The original line topped out via the right hand groove, but a more direct top out was completed in 2017 up the left hand groove (same one you started in) by another party. It's about the same grade but a little bit cleaner.

Comments: Doesn't look like it matters, because the routes are all in order, but they're listed right to left rather than left to right as the page shows.

Comments: Is the upper part of this the same as "The Joy of Cooking" 11 ish or is this a different line? Joy... was always one if my favorites at Cooks and I plan to add it to the database soon. Thanks!

Comments: Peter, yes, if you're talking about the other large cliff also facing south. It's Cow Rock but unfortunately private property. For what it's worth, Laurel is definitely the better of the two.

Comments: With permission from both the FA party and the State Park, a bolted anchor has been placed in effort to reduce trampling on the fire-damaged topout; many climbers have been hiking off rather than rapping down and the park is in favor of discouraging this practice.

Comments: Thanks guys for the update. It's been a long time for me and I was curious where it fit in with everything else. Glad to hear that wall is getting so much attention nowadays.

Comments: Anyone ever climb "Rubber Cookie" between Pepper Shaker and Fortune Cookie? It has a single (el cheapo) bolt? I always thought it was fun.

Comments: Ryan, it sounds like you might have been on the last pitch if captain hooks - it goes up the orange wall at ~ 5.11 climbing. Apricot goes around this to the right then back left. I'm curious about the bolts - got any pics?

Comments: BBB is definitely cool but the Desperado Wall has some of the best face climbing I've ever done. That one gets my vote, hands down!

Comments: Rad route that deserves some traffic! The roof(s) pitch used to have some serious lichen on it - I doubt much has changed. Climb espresso grinder to this thing and that'd be one heck of a climb.

Comments: For a more groovy experience, you can also climb a direct start instead of the rail features out right. There's an additional bolt and some gear to protect this section.

Comments: Not sure, but I think the trail intersections have changed a bit since the park completed the new section (the large wide portion leading to the boulderfield) last year. Too bad you guys didn't get on "Lakeview" instead - it's one of the best routes at the Bald.

Comments: Brett, I posted a pic of the general area (under the Second Stanza route page) that you're welcome to use if you'd like to draw in the line. I personally would be interested in knowing where it goes, and where that anchor is. Thanks.

Comments: Frost is a friend of mine who removed the bolt. Surprisingly it was in very good shape to be 32 years old.
