Comments: That's a Dennis Horning route, on the west edge, 5.9 I think he told me. Back in 89 I climbed the cracks directly below, rather then the original scramble pitch on the east side.

Comments: Pretty sure this one was done with a Bosch. I know it was early 90's while they were still legal in the Park.

It was considered 10c when it first went up but I could see it loosing enough crystals to be harder by now. Very sustained for a Needles route.

Comments: Its been a long time but I know I didn't tape up for this. I do remember there being holds inside the crack. Also there's really no feet so your on your arms more, very atypical for the area.

Comments: Brent I totally agree on the PG13, witnessed a near meltdown on it once, not sure about the rating its been a long time. Maybe things have changed holds break who knows.

Not sure exactly what Tony is trying to describe. For the second pitch I always went straight up a thin crack right above the belay. Always thought that pitch was the crux at about 5.9

Comments: I watched a guy from Boulder pull this off first try no pads and only one me spotter.

He did a bold move by putting his whole foot in the ear like pod. I finally sent it right after he did using the same technique. That was the first and only time I bouldered this one, top roped it a couple of time after. If you were to fall with your foot in the ear no doubt you would brake it as well as land on your head.

Comments: This is a great place to finish out the day with a good burn.

There are several one move wonders to the right of this one. As I recall there is one 5.8 and a couple of more in the 9 range. You have to use the same holds a couple of times just move a step right. The hold you used for your right hand becomes the left handhold for the next problem.

There were 5 problems that I would do in 10 laps for a total of 50. Do them as fast as possible to make it a semi aerobic workout.

Comments: As I recall there is a bolt above this one. But working out the start with a top rope was awkward at best. Once you are above the mantle the rope helps to work out the finish.

Back in the early 90's I spent a lot of time at the Campground boulder. Lots of sore heels from this one, that was before pads. Once I had the mantle worked out I jumped off quite a few times before I broke down and put the rope on it. Once you figure it out thou it's a great problem to repeat.
