Comments: This is a great route. The bottom section has a little lichen negotiation but all the holds are clean enoughto use. Watch out for the small wasp nest in the middle of the route. If you leave them alone they will leave you alone. It is inside a pocket and fairly easy to see. The middle section gives you a little exposure over the gully. The upper part is, as Slater says, beautiful. Clean and very fun on solid rock. The anchors are actually inside the cave. Three bolts riggeed for rap. R... more >>

Comments: Why would it be "unethical" to put in an extra set of anchors. It would alleviate crowding, make the climbing safer, and considerably reduce the suck factor of setting up the anchors on top. Rockland has a history of being a "begginers" area. So why not continue to keep it safe and easy?

I personally like the new anchors for Step Aside. The problem is now I need something for the top of Kermit Crack. What to do?

The anchors for Chimney Crack are awesome once they are set but it is a tota... more >>

Comments: Too funny Jody!!Now Rattlesnake DOES taste like chicken, but it has annoying bones like fish in it.

I have looked long and hard at Morro Rock more than a few times. I think that one is best left to the birds. They have marked most of it as their own (gives new meaning to crappy rock). There could be a few good lines on it but I don't think it will be open anytime soon. Give it as a token sacrifice to the enviromental Gods. Just as long as they leave Bishops open.

Comments: This is a great route! You can get a small cam into the back of the large hole at the bottom for a multi directional. The hand crack in the middle as awesome. It sucks up nuts or cams for bomber placements. The blocky terrain before the traverse takes gear well also. I placed a large nut and medium cam up a little high then down climbed a move and did the traverse. Don't go too high. The bolt is just around the corner as soon as you can go left. Go up and then left from the bolt. I en... more >>

Comments: The top anchors to this climb and the others on Newt Wall are intact, both are two bolts with hangers. They are a little close to the edge.Bring a daisy chain to be safe when setting a top rope. The lead bolts for The New-tist Colony are hangerless but not chopped.
