Comments: There is loose rock before and after the first anchor as well. The first 100' has fun, awkward climbing.

Comments: After the vertical start, this can be climbed without using your hands all the way to the anchor. Pretty fun to do it this way. I did a knee dab around the last bolt though it was probably unnecessary;)

Comments: I am very glad to see all the effort put in establishing all these great new routes, kudos to the developers, but I must agree with Derek's statement. It will also now be next to impossible to ever reuse the existing holes many years into the future should they ever need reequipping.

Comments: This route was a blast! The "unnerving" block would take an earthquake to dislodge.

Comments: I wanted to go through the roof above, but it sounded too hollow for me to want to bolt. It would be even better if the last third of the route was more engaging. I am still iffy on the grade, maybe easier maybe harder, hard to read for the onsight. Enjoy!

Comments: A fun route with only a few sharp holds. It would get another star if it was a taller route. Cool holds in the seam around the lower bolts and a little burly to finish the route out.

Comments: My buddy uses the same tubing from his ex-filter. I use automotive hose but it doesn't stay tied in a knot as well.

Comments: Glad to! I wonder if the wall has some sport route capability? I would suggest camouflage bolts/hangers, since it is across from the main campground. I have been stopped by the same ranger twice while I have been in there (not for climbing), he is nice but treats everyone like a suspect when he finds the area trashed.
I will post more FAs if I can figure out where they go.

Comments: Not sure if I got Caroline's OW start marked right. The approach is short but unpleasant in its current state. Look out for poison ivy, too. Come climb here, I'm not trying to scare you!

Comments: You can see the rap bolts from the camp. Tough to see but obvious, left of the crack on the blank looking red face.

Comments: The tat is faded white, and you can see the anchors from the campground, hard to see though.

Comments: I intended to do that wide crack around the corner, to the top, but it never worked out. It looks like it will be tougher but very doable. Have fun with it. I will give you a call sooner than later.

Comments: I climbed this in 2012. I took it left to a ledge that had a sling wrapped around a horn which we replaced and rapped from. Was that your old tat from the FA? The same day I also climbed a route that was about the same height and about 60' to the right. It went into a cool wide pod with ribs in it to thin hands at a small roof and finished with cupped hands to pins and slings right of the crack. Was this one yours too?
My friends have climbed (FA) the the two taller cracks on the wall. One i... more >>
