Comments: Not sure why this is listed as 5.5 and 200 feet. It's more like 5.7 and closer to 300 feet. Make sure to take up a second rope or you'll have trouble getting down.

Comments: Does anyone know the name of the route on the wall between nabisco & sculpture? The bolts are on top of the east wall of nabisco canyon, about 10 feet further down from the big eye bolt above the easy crack, and the route is on the opposite side of the wall from nabisco canyon.

Comments: Maybe a year ago? It's a lot of fun, even though the flake is so short--you get two or three cool moves and then you're back on the same old face climb.

Comments: Be very wary of the two new looking bolts with fixe hangers above the right side of Mozart's. Although they appear to be only a few years old, both hangers spin freely and one of the actual bolts can be wiggled around by hand both vertically and horizontally.

The two big glue-ins are bomber.

Comments: Definitely wouldn't if you're going straight down the slab.. but off the right hand side it's only 30 or 35 feet to the ground (due to the hill that the slab is on). I guess it would depend on how much slack your belayer is giving you. I was just observing that even though it's easy climbing it can be very challenging to a new leader due to the long runouts.

I don't think another bolt in between would be amiss. What's the consensus on adding/replacing at this location? I'll probably be ba... more >>
