Comments: The cold shuts were replaced 2016 and the anchor lowered to the lip, below the ledge so that the rope no longer has to run over the lip at the top of the wall. Still a great route 21 years later.

Comments: All routes have now had hardware upgrades that needed them and cold shut hangers have been replaced. BTW - the welds on the cold shuts were just fine, but hopefully the new ClimbTech hardware will be more enticing for future climbers. Details such as relocated anchors, etc., will be shown on individual routes. The Red Wall should be all spruced up for next season.

Comments: Hope to get more info into Rakkup for next season. The new and better trail is in Rakkup now and the start better delineated as of yesterday.

Comments: This climb should be renamed The Camalot Graveyard, there are now 5 stuck #3s on the 4th pitch.

Comments: Glad you had fun there, and the routes seemed worthwhile. The addition of about 100 new routes in that vicinity made it worth doing hardware upgrades this summer, and there's a spur trail now from Devil's Gate that accesses everything without too much adventure. I'll add some of this to Rakkup here before too long. Curiously, Private Idaho was the first sport route at Devil's Head and is still one of the most obscur... more >>

Comments: The hangers could be more likely to rotate with the added washers, but the Powers bolts are designed for vibrating machinery, etc., and won't loosen due to hanger movement, so they should be ok.

Comments: All hangers replaced and top anchor enhanced today. Except for a couple of crumbly spots, the rock is good on this route if one stays on the line. A great route for a sunny, cool Fall day.

Comments: Did the route today, and I would say the runout face is 5.8, not 5.6, and agree that it is X rated route. The consequence of a 50' fall directly off the belay onto a ledge gives the route an X rating in my book (Mark in this case). At least there's an alternative to that section still providing access to the rest of the route. A couple of bolts would make the slab reasonable and still exciting enough.

Comments: Any locals have info on current conditions at HCR? We're looking at possibly a couple of days there early next week. Not sure if the heavy weather that hit MS & LA affected the area or not.

Comments: There is a new parking lot planned for the vicinity of Mile Marker 10. Not sure when construction will begin, but I believe the USFS has everything all set up with Douglas County to do the construction, so it may even happen in 2016. It is also possible to park at the big hairpin about 1/4 mile past MM10 and head up to Radio Head from below, just stay right & head up through the woods.

Comments: The hangers on this route appear to be stainless SMC and the bolts Plated Rawl 5-piece. Considering the vintage and consequence of failure of even one bolt, these should be on the list for replacement before too long.

Comments: The anchors on this route are in fractured cap rock and should be lowered about three feet to much better stone and with something better than chain and washers directly on bolts.

Comments: The bolting could be modified just a bit to make this a better route for the 5.10 climber. Overall, the climbing was fun and the rock good too.

Comments: The anchor on this route is total crap. I've used beefier chains for my dog. I posted this to put it on MP for the list for whoever gets there next to upgrade. If I wasn't freezing yesterday, I would've swapped out the manky chain for quicklinks.
