Comments: "There's a chance of seriously damaging the rope when falling on this route. I had to chop ~3m."
Where did you fall, and what did your rope get damaged on? I haven't fallen on the route, so I can't be sure, but I don't recall any sharp features that your rope could run over.

Comments: Climbed this today. Great route! The webbing on the 3 pin anchor has been cut/worn though (quicklink is still there). If you're going to be climbing this soon, I'd recommend bringing some extra webbing with you. I didn't have any and downclimbed to the left.

Comments: This is the shared start for routes 14&15. For 15 stay to the right, for 14 step left around the corner.

Comments: Was at MH the other day and routes 1&2 have had the bolts replaced. They are both fun routes and worth doing. There is an additional route that was put up to the right of 2, but it was wet and we didn't get on it. Additionally, #8 is now bolted, there is a partially bolted line to the left of original sin, and routes 14/15 have a couple of bolts (not sure it these had previously chopped bolts replaced or were retrobolted).

Comments: I saw some rap slings around trees at the top, but this can be easily walked off descending along orange crush wall.

Comments: Climbed this route today and it was in great shape. After reading Bradley's description and looking at his photo I think we did a slightly different variation. There are now two bolts on the roof for a rock route which can be clipped if you want to traverse over directly from the top of the pillar and up to a ledge with a bolted anchor.

Comments: Wow, just saw this on the front page and instantly knew what route it was and remembered making the placement.

Comments: Climbed this route a few weeks ago and is a good link up with the north face if you're looking for something a little easier than flash flood. I would recommend climbing almost a full rope length for the first pitch so that you can reach a nice ledge instead of the hanging belay. It might be possible to do the whole thing in three pitches, but there would be huge amount of rope drag on the final pitch.

Comments: Stopped here planning to camp for a night on a roadtrip a few weeks ago and camping as well as overnight parking is no longer allowed, but I'm not sure how well it is actually enforced. Fun climbing area though.

Comments: Climbed this back in 2003-2004 when I was at The Academy. Not great rock, but your best option if you can't leave base. Curious when the first ascent was, as I remember there being a really old fixed pin on it.
