Comments: Thanks to the FA's that put in such hard work to make this area wonderful. Lots of respect of some of the posters above, even the ones I don't know personally. I know the names and they've done massive work to this (and other) areas. Bunch of badasses in my book.

For this route-- my thinking seems to align with Marcy's post above on all counts. If it started on gear, then it should stay on gear. Unless the FA is coo... more >>

Comments: Now it's a pizza restaurant - with a big patio and awesome views off the back. You can still do pull ups inside on the old drilled out pockets though!

Comments: Kevin's comments are right on; but I found many places that I would have really liked having the medium to large nuts. I'd definitely take them next time.

Comments: Stellar route! One of my all time favorites! We were able to run up Unimpeachable Groping after and still make it to the car by dark for a nice long day.

Definitely space that gear out on the last pitch, even if it means you're just leap-frogging. Felt like more #3's needed than anything else, although it changes sizes from 1-3 some-what frequently. Also glad to have both #4's to leave along the way and save the 2&#... more >>

Comments: Just as a heads up to first time visitors:

Recently spent a few days in Siurana and found the Village crags to be vastly less crowded than the Valley crags. We spend the weekend days at the Village crags and had whole crags to ourselves (including Campi Qui Pugui!), whereas we were at the Valley crags for a Monday and Tuesday and they were totally overrun with people. Maybe not always the case, but its possible that the further drive up the hill dissuades many folks...

Both Village and Val... more >>

Comments: Really fun techy climbing! The only detractor is the loads and loads of chalk caking most of the holds.

Comments: One of my favorites at the crag; a must do. The slab moves are tricky if there's no chalk, but the sequence is super fun once figured out!

Comments: Loved the area! Had a great day at an entirely empty crag. Splurged and stayed at Hotel Dom just up the road (5km) in Organya. The food at the restaurant (Restaurante Val) inside the hotel was the best food we had in all of Spain. Plus breakfast was included. Highly recommended!

Anyone know the line to the left?

Comments: I wore 2 helmets and two pairs of glasses for bonus points, but still got too much sand in my eyes. Ended up bailing after a grain of sand hit me from about half way through pitch 3. I think a slightly larger pebble remains, looking like it may come off with the slightest of red lunged huffs (I'm not sure though, I was belaying below).

Holy moly, leading pitch 2 was a treat though. Looking forward to coming back for another round.

Comments: Woah-- the movement on this climb is seriously amazing. Based on movement, I'd call it my favorite route at the Pond.

The only detractor is how close the other pillar is through the crux. I had to do a long deadpoint into the big hueco all while staring at an easy stem a few feet away. If you stemmed through this section on purpose (which feels natural), the route is maybe still 11ish..?

Probably a 3 star route, but giving it 4 stars to hopefully get more folks on it!

Comments: I always have a great time on this one. A great warm up since there are plenty of rests between harder moves. The stemming up top is out of this world fun!

Comments: This route is highly underrated. Just plain fun splitter action!

2x 1C3-#2C4, 3x .75-1, 1x 3 or 4 seemed nice for an onsight rack

Comments: Not sure why the description mentions passing 3 bolts, this is a 100% gear route. Can use the Dark Passage anchor up top to TR (with a directional).

Singles to #5 if this is your limit, however I didn't use anything larger than a #3 as the crack pinches down in the back semi-frequently.

Comments: Starting with P1 of Deep Throat is a much more enjoyable way to do this and keep it 5.4 for both pitches. A star for each pitch!

Comments: TR'd this the other day. Awesome line! Definitely steeper than many of the routes here and super fun movement!

Spent lots of time cleaning off the loose flakes in the lower section. Gear is small here, but the climbing is pretty easy. A few more sessions and hopefully any questionable rock will be gone. The upper section is steep! Powerful laybacking with poor feet. Great rock though with a hero finish!

Comments: This and angel's on my mind next door felt really soft for Pinnacle Peak. Still packs in some fun for how short it is.

Comments: Oak Flat Campground is about 5 mins east of the Pond. Just keep going towards Globe on the US-60 and there will be a sign and a turnoff on the right.
