Comments: Kevin did you bolt anything else there or just the one? Was the face better? I think the fire messed it up because it's reallly loose and exfoliating.

Comments: Theres these things called loppers that you can use to cut back pants. They work a lot better than crying about things online. Get out and take care of your local spots and give back to the areas that give you so much.

Comments: This route got pretty beat up by rock fall. I climbed it 5/2/17 and there is still some loose stuff and a lot of dirt on the route.

Comments: The thin crack just under the roof was really moist from bat or rat piss today. It made the bomber finger jams really slippery and gross.

Comments: Yeah James, great idea. A directional in the undercling helps too.

Comments: You're totally right. Spending $100 to bolt a route and putting it up on mountain project for others to enjoy is really selfish.

Comments: The first pitch is only 30 ft, it's runout but not that wild.

Please don't put up any routes because it doesn't seam like you know what you are doing. The first set of anchors is a bolt with a quicklink and chain and the other "bolt" is a metolious rap hanger that you can thread your rope through and rap or lower off from.

Comments: Yep, pretty wild descent. In the dark and the cables were down. To me, coming down off half dome was way scarier than the 90ft runouts on snake dike.

Comments: I don't think anything broke off. It's just a hard thin slab. It goes straight up and a little to the right. I don't want to sound like a dick, but 5.11s at Malibu creek are way different than 5.10 slabs at Tahquitz or Yosemite. Good luck dude! You'll send it soon.

Comments: There's 2 bomber 3/8s bolts at the top of this route. And an old 1/4in one too.

Comments: How can this a V3 be way harder than Clay Face which is a V5? This must be like V7.

Comments: I've never placed a glue in before so I don't know how they should sit. I camo all my bolts before I put them in. Also use a little paint pen to touch them up if I only paint the hangers and need to camo the nuts/bolt head. And spray paint really pisses me off, I've done a ton of graffiti removal in the angeles national forest. Luckily only climbers will see this so it shouldn't hurt our access.

Comments: Take the fun diagonal crack to a small belay ledge. Sling and flake and hang out. Then send your partner up the twin cracks and out of view to a fun ridge line scramble.

Comments: Were they using it as a back up for rappelling? Or just as an ascender? I've ascended like 180ft using a shoulder length dyneema as a prussic and had no problems to unstick a rope. I can see it getting hot rapping with it but not as an emergency ascender.
