Comments: This is the highest quality crag in Phantom Canyon, based on ease of access and the quality of the routes. It is highly metamporphosed, with bands of mica determining where handholds form in many cases. It is similar to Clear Creek Canyon.

Comments: Please refrain from fine tuning or customizing routes in areas you didn't develop that are still currently enjoyed by the people that developed them.

There's no problem making suggestions or asking if you can do something and in some cases the FA might agree with you, but to assume everyone is cool with moving anchors around with nothing more than your own crew agreeing with you is bad form.

Comments: From what I understand, it was just a loose nut. Consider carrying a small crescent wrench with you in sport areas to tighten nuts that get loose over the years. Love this route!

Comments: Let's change the name to what John Gill calls it, then. Raven's Buttress. I can't think of another crag with that name anywhere, so there would be less confusion.

Comments: This is the zig-zagging crack to the right of the wide, shrub-filled Kathy's crack. You start by climbing up some big buckets until where the crack begins. Pro is generally quite large in places. I would take at least a #3, #2, #1 and #0.75. Climb up and right, then the crack goes up straight up. Belay all the way where the angle tapers off and the crack heads sharp left. There is a little rock sitting next to the belay that fits snug against the rock.... more >>

Comments: This is the line called "Aces High" as described on this page. It is awesome, is it not?

Comments: So Bob Robertson told me he named this after Tracy Roach, who climbed it the day he finished bolting it. Tracy's partner started pulling the rope, which had a knot in the end and necessitated leading the route again to fix the problem. Hence the name, Knot Too Many Roaches. :-D

Comments: We found this pitch delightful, having missed the correct way to finish Heavy Weather. 5.8 sounds about right.

Comments: It's just a case of someone getting late to the party and whining about how the early bird ate the worm. Go find some more rock, and create another crag. Plenty of rock in this pass that is just a little uphill. Then later we can all say, Oh I would have bolted it like this and bla, bla, bla. It'll be fun.

Comments: Google Earth provided this horrible view of the cliffs:

Destroyed South Table Mountain.


You can zoom in for more detail on Google, but essentially it really has been reduced to rubble. You can also see on the map view that this little slice was/is outside of the park boundary, and so was private land.

Comments: Some less than admirable person removed the hanger on the first bolt, so if you intend to clip it, bring a nut and hanger.

Comments: It looks steep from this angle, but the yellow option is very easy. We took it on 8-29-15, and it works perfectly to get you over the buttress.

Comments: There is a crack dihedral to the right of this wide crack you can also climb that goes at 5.6.

Comments: This pitch is better than most of the pitches on Royal Flush. So definitely do it, and then walk along the ledge right to join the final pitches of RF.

Comments: I'm sorry you got so much pressure to make this a mixed route from locals, Bobby. They have sport routes bolted all over Europe now and of course down in Potrero Chico, Mexico. It's going to take a while for all of these traditionalists to die off for this to exist here. I'm glad the Mt. Royal routes don't get so much flack.

Comments: I climbed the north ridge of Sentinel on Nov. 8th, 2014 as well, Julian. It was quite the chossfest but still interesting. I would have continued up to the highest point, but I got a rather late start and so headed down before the sun set.
