Comments: This was so easy for Bacher that he didn't name it any thing. Except for a "snort" on the top out not a sound was heard when this was first sent.

Comments: Is this where Chad got his ankle fused? I always tell people who got totally jacked up that I know a guy who still climbs 13+ with hockey stick for a foot. Seems to cheer them up.

Comments: This is the ugliest rock I have ever climbed on but there's some good pitches up there.

Comments: Also, there's two newer bolts directly below the jug on this, I think the V and G book shows them going left but with no name or details just a "?".

Comments: I crumbled a few feet on this but all the finger edges seemed good, lots of core tension through the last half, 11c I would say.

Comments: Great tips locks on this. What's with the bolted anchor at the base? And there's two bolts between this and BC Ouch up the blunt arete and a third at the top, ever get sent?

Comments: Old quarter inch bolts on this, try not to fall, pretty much just a few moves and then a scramble to the top. Didn't see a spot for any nuts.

Comments: TR'd this today after taking Dick Tracy to the top, fun one move wonder but unleadable with that bolt. Same for the route to the right.

Comments: .3 BD fits a little more snug in that last finger slot. I thought this was great fun but some crumble in the beginning.

Would have to be "R"for the 5.9 leader.

Comments: I took the lower start and then traversed into the left arching crack at the step across height. Kinda difficult exiting the arching crack and the slab crux is definitely the hardest moves.

Comments: It's good. I climbed right of the first two bolts to clip them and then came down and climbed left of the bolts, 2nd bolt would be hard to clip otherwise. Heady move to get to the third bolt but cool slopey fins up there.

Comments: After clipping the first bolt I used the right wall to get to a stance to clip the second bolt, then tried to use the arete to get up, pretty hard. Wild easy climb up the arete from there. Might be more fun to use the chimney to gain the upper arete. Bolt are button heads and are sketch, first one is pulled out and bent a touch.

A 70m will put you close enough to the ground from the upper bolted rap station to down climb, not the bolts for Forest Lawn, there's a better rap station to the clim... more >>

Comments: Fun through the first two bolts, they are just ok quality though. Some hard dime edging to get to the third.
At the end I went straight up a cool groove at about 11b, no pro there TRd it.

Comments: Lone bolt is a quarter incher, but not the worse I've seen, just a quick 10a move on slabpast the bolt and easier climbing above. Left start 10a crack has some nice finger locks.

Comments: TRd P2 today, some fun moves and yes, the bolts are bad. The hardest moves are off the belay getting to the first bolt, there's a stance in there if someone wants to retro develop this route ;)

Comments: Pretty short business section but pretty well protected, I went left at the finish to add a little on.

Comments: Shares start with Reunion, a small cam or two needed before getting to the first bolt, I also clipped the first bolt of Reunion with a long runner.
Shitty detached flake at the start, don't place behind it.

Comments: Tricky start but it soon eases up, really small cams helpful, I put in the red x4 and purple C3.

BTW, this is mislabeled in the Gaines/Vogel guide. The number boxs on the topo should be shifted one space left.
