Comments: This crack is the best one I have done at The Overlook, and is definitely one of the best at its grade in all of White Rock.

Comments: Logan,
That is right, they are very touchy about the bridge. I too have been in those shoes in this canyon.

Comments: Aaron-Apology accepted.
A bit of history: We thoroughly cleaned this route as much as we could and the last bolt was drilled but never installed due to crummy rock at the top. It was led several times in this condition, and the bottom section was fine and didn't really need to be moved. If anything, you might of kept that intact, and used your new two bolts at the bottom as a variation. At the time it was another way up to the upper tier. Nowadays due to the retro, that is not a possibility.

Comments: Marc Beverly's book states that this line was done in the 60's. Will the real first ascensionist step up, if you exist.

Comments: I would give all the routes at this crag one star or less. The rock is really bad. You are better off to go to upper LA Canyon where the rock is better and the routes are better, and you won't be harrassed by the bridge nazis.

Comments: If you climb the left side, be very careful traversing across the thin ice to get to the left side and take a #1,#2, and #3 camalots and an ice screw with a cordelette for the belay up in the cave. Traverse out right to Jemez Falls proper to get off.

Comments: The FA was Ken Kisiel and Dennis Newell. Pull the out-side of the rope to make sure your rope does not get eaten by the crack.

Comments: A bit of history: this route was first attempted with gear placements before there was consensus to bolt it, and that was before any anchors were put in. Might I note that two of the lead bolts could stand to be replaced(2nd and 3rd). You wouldn't really want to air on them. Hanging on them seemed ok.
