Comments: I wouldn't recommend rapping off the top pitch, unless you have enough gear to extend the rappel 25-30 feet to the edge of the cliff. Best option is to stash packs near the La Luz trail at the first switchback and walk down to the base of the crag. Then you can walk off the top and grab gear on the way out.

Comments: Finally got on the second pitch today, what a fantastic climb. Be careful, as a few key holds are very loose and will come off at some point.

Comments: First ascent was by Jim Erickson, Pat Ament, and Bill Putnam in 1972. The climb is so named because Erickson was apparently feeling a bit past his prime at the time.

Comments: Is sitting on the big ledge to the right of the crux roof technically off route? It was a much needed rest but felt a little like cheating.

Comments: Nice route, sustained but no truly powerful moves required. I think 5.11b, not as hard as Chariots on Fire.

Comments: Was out at the Quarry today climbing at Wreckage wall and had a chance to look at the 6 or 7 new routes which have gone up to the right (this is called Twin Towers area, I believe?) They appear to be real gems.

Many thanks to those taking time (and money) to safely develop this humble crag. You are appreciated.
