Comments: Josh, you went the right way on p2, straight up at the bolt line. Just tricky!

Comments: The start has a hidden left foot. Then it's foot bumping and palming for a couple moves. Eventually you will get to a pretty thin crimp pitch feature on the right. Like Stamati said, you just gotta believe you will stick.

For the squeeze, clip the bolt and work out left a little and hop in! Glad you enjoyed the route!

Comments: You can rap from the look out at the top of the UTW. There's some trees to use. That being said,I'm not sure a 100 meter rope will reach the ground if fixed off a tree​.

Comments: Yeah, I'm with Stamati. It's sport climbing, equinox for example has all perma draws. Ethics in sport climbing aren't real.

Comments: Expect the first 2 pitches to be dirty until the rest of the area is fully developed. Still climbable, but bring a brush to help future parties until we give it a final leaf blow later in the year! Every bit helps!

Comments: Currently very dirty due to route development in the area. It will likely remain that way for the season until the work above is complete.

Comments: Route is currently very dirty due to major development in the area. There is plans to retro fit old bolts on p1, remove the tree on p4 and give the route a cleaning. This won't likely happen until later in the summer until the other routes are complete. It is probably climbable, but expect any of the ledgey sections to have some dirt.

Comments: Looks worthy of a cleaning. This would add to the list of dry enough to climb routes for the wet season.

Comments: The first pitch seeps through out the winter. It will dry out after a couple weeks of dry weather as early as spring. Stays dry into fall and isn't affected by the first heavy rains.

Awesome route that sees very little traffic.

Comments: That's where we wanted to finish. Much harder then the moves below. An extension may be possible.

Comments: Pins are on less than zero, that finishes up at the same anchor but is out of reach from this route. There is a bolt or two up there though!

Comments: Thanks, John. The route is to remember two good friends who have passed. The bolt your seeing is on the way to the anchor for Another Man's Car, which is where the frog corner starts up and left. As for a #3, wide hands to small fist would be correct.

Lamplighter free looks great, but would require some serious vertical gardening skills!

Comments: Thanks, John. It's just a hole in the ground with a little toilet seat covering. It is sort of hard to see.
