Comments: Does anyone know the status of the roadside camping situation here? When I've been in years past, my experience has definitely matched up with those described above: pretty nasty. Is the spot still open? Clean? Any other comments or recent experiences? Thanks!

Comments: Does anybody know where the tyrolean went? Or if there is a good place to cross the river (other than when it's frozen over in the wintertime? I like the Primo Wall...

Comments: This route is absolutely excellent. I recommend it to anyone interested in getting some big air out under your feet. I agree with everyone else's comments that the first pitch of Outer Space is tougher than the the second. That dihedral is definitely more technical and devious than the one hard move to clip the pin in the undercling on the airy final pitch. Also, I second that motion to go around toward the right on the mini-pillar from the belay atop the first pitch of the Bastille Crack in... more >>
