Comments: Completed the route on Saturday, November 19th, 2016. Both fixed heads on pitch one are in good condition and held me (210 lb plus aid gear). We completed the route in 10 hours car to car. I was slow leading pitch one at 2 hours and follower was slow learning how to follow pendulum bolt ladder so time could be cut down bettwe if good at aid on pitch 1.

Once past pitch one the climbing gets easier each pitch with small technical lead sections on pitch 4 and pitch 5.

You can bail from just past ... more >>

Comments: Cienega Campground was closed in 2004/2005 when the heavy rains brought by El Nino washed out the roads going in and the government abandoned care.

Locals were visiting the campground in the early 60's so it is surmised that the campground was built during the depression which matches the bridge dates along the local San Francisquito Canyon Road and Lake Hughes Road.

This also matches the timeline of the pitons placed (1960's). The french pitons used on ... more >>

Comments: The abandoned campground at the entrance to Fish Canyon Narrows is called Cienega Campground and was active in the early 70's. It is during this time that one could walk to the base of the climbing area in 15 minutes instead of the long hike we now face. A bike would be a smart decision to save your legs.

Comments: Did as an aid climb on 3/20/15. All the home made pins are in good shape and solid. Did as three short pitches using a double rack and 15 slings. Offset nuts helpful.

Pitches 1 and 2 were easy and pitch 3 being the crux as gear was running low.

Two 60m ropes or 1 60m rope and a pull cord make rapping the route a breeze.

Top of pitch 3 is a large tree with sling and rapide. Bring webbing to replace.

Top of what we designated as pitch 2 had 2 solid bolts with rap rings. Just above the rap rin... more >>

Comments: This climb is not for beginning 5.7 leaders. The first two pitches are easy yet run out making this climb very heady. Two 60m ropes are needed to rappel the route, consider having the second carry a pull cord if you want to go light.

If the climb is busy, consider the two pitch 5.8 to climber's right about 600 ft. Fun and well protected.

If a big group goes up (like two teams of 3), consider the mess that will ensue when they rap the route if you climb up after them...

Completed Lost Arrow Spire Tip over the weekend. Hiked in sat and bivied up top. Better to bivy down near the falls/river in the trees as it would have been warmer, closer access to water, and less wind.

Sun am we dropped into the notch. Used the obvious larger tree a bit back from the edge (about 2 ft diameter). Rigged the tree by wrapping twice and securing it with a figure eight on a bight with two opposite and opposed biners. Used a 200 ft static line and a 60m lead rope. Had to pas... more >>
