Comments: Superb area, huge thanks to all of the FA teams...

Regarding the road in, we drove in today in my partners subaru forester with minimal drama. Would not want anything less. Careful driving is key but nothing super gnarly as of today. Road conditions are always subject to change. In the forester it took us about 30 mins from the A-frame.

Comments: A couple of things regarding weekend bandit's 80 meter rope rap beta...

1. The rap from top of 4 to top of 3 is casual.

2. The rap from top of 3 to top of 2 is a legitimate rope stretcher. Make sure you have a true, full 80 meter rope...and be prepared for a very, very slim margin for error in a highly exposed position. TIE KNOTS IN THE END OF YOUR ROPE. Stretch gets you there and not much more. Be ready to grab the ends when the second person is done rapping, I would im... more >>

Comments: this thing definitely felt broken to me this past weekend. obvious feature had fallen off near maybe the 4th bolt? 5th bolt? I'm 5'7 and the climb felt miles harder than anything else of the grade on the Eastside I have climbed.

Comments: Dislodged a torso-sized block on the route today that was part of the crux sequence. Multiple holds were flexing on the route. I'm not sure if the recent rain had impacted how the holds were mortared into the wall or whatnot, but climbing with extreme care and having the belayer wear a helmet would be wise.

Comments: Great route that looks improbable for the grade, but both gear and features appear when needed.

Comments: Good route for the grade with potential to be great once and if it cleans up a bit (somewhat flaky).

Comments: Great route, maybe best at the cliff. Bring your catcher's mitt to catch that baseball hold.

Comments: The length is way off on this pitch, as well as those to the left of it. These pitches are closer to 90-100', not 50'.

Comments: Randy - According to Handren's guide, if the route you are referring to is on the East face of the boulder (4 bolts), it is Golden Nugget, 5.11d.

Comments: Really fun romp with a few short bits that might be 5.10. Easy to link pitches and as stated above, this is the perfect route to get warmed up to/acclimated to the area.

Comments: Great climbing, if a bit sharp on the upper pitches. My partner and I both thought this to be fully 10c.

The undercling pitch is wild!

Comments: Super fun route that serves as a great warmup for the wall. That being said...no way this thing is 5.10

Comments: A fantastic rock climb with a super sweet finish. It's all there, but beta intensive. Fully agree with Jeff's 5.11a assessment as well.

Comments: Yes, the BLM was out giving tickets this past Saturday. Rationale is that those parking at the corner were often creating a bit of a cluster so that traffic couldn't go through and also that it impeded SAR, per the BLM ranger.

You can park nearby still and it is a negligible increase to the walk to the crags. Not a huge deal, but be mindful that they aren't playing.

Comments: Fantastic route and waaaay better than Tunnel Vision. Super fun! Goes casually in 4 pitches per the beta up-thread. Suggest single rack to #5 camalot.

Probably would not suggest this for the budding 5.7 leader as you can tend to run the rope for a while, but a worthy cruise with some unique situations encountered.

Comments: Great climb, wonderful variety and brilliant movement. Very easily doable on a summer morning, as the route faces West.

That being said, there are two anchor bolt issues:

Anchor atop P2, right hand bolt is significantly loose in the hole.

Anchor atop P3, left hand bolt is significantly loose in the hole and protruding a touch.
