Comments: Just a note about the approach to save yourself possible problems. Once you descend down the hand ropes stay to your left along the band of rocks after the Tree. Do not continue descending on the trail that goes to the river, unless you're fishing...

Comments: watch out for the rock behined you once you get past 3rd bolt, decking opportunity if the belay leaves to much slack. If you bring a clip stick you can top rope this by hiking up the opposite side of the slot canyon where climb is located. Stays shady all day and gets a couple hours of afternoon sun towards the top of climb.

Comments: Did this tonight, great route for beginners. The slot that this climb is in will keep out the summer heat. It only gets sun for a couple hours in the afternoon and the belay area will be shaded pretty much all day. Great for mid summer climbs during the day. First move getting off the ground is awkward and requires some good body English or a sloppy knee. Then hand pockets and one or two finger pockets to the chains.

Comments: crux felt like the move up to the 2nd bolt but smooth sailing the rest of the climb.

Comments: Climbed "wait for it" and "awesome" today. First time out there. Neat area and easy access, looking forward to going back soon. Thanks again for all the bolted routes. Very delicate routes that require thin holds but everything we climbed was solid.

Any info on the routes on the west side of river?
