Comments: I mind... i'd prefer a limit on bolts in the idyllwild backcountry. been on many of the rocks over the years and most summits can be top-roped/ descended without convenience bolts, but this is a whole'nuther discussion.

AND, I really do mind poorly placed bolts... and "gnar gnar holes"

Comments: The layback arch is actually quite good. And the pro is just fine. Not stellar, but just fine. It is a cool pitch that makes you think, but once you put it together the moves flow...

I know it doesn't have as cool a name as other areas in this pittedsplitted area, but I've known this part of The Others as The Playground for more years than I can remember. Oh so close to the Darwin Splitter! Told you the name aint as cool... scramble up and left of the The Creationism Tower.

The crowds are coming. The Jungle Gym will topple... say it aint so...

Comments: if you leave the rig at Nomads, crawl up to Humber Park, then continue to crawl up the approach trail, crawl up the talus fields, tie one arm behind your back, put roller skates on one foot, use no chalk, this is a GRADE V day!!!

Comments: Guess I was one of those repeat offenders. I have tossed plenty of those warnings over the years, and one time I received a notice to appear. I fought the law, but the law won...

The Humber Park fees are a joke. A couple picnic tables, a couple stupid info-boards, striped parking lanes, and a shitter that's not cleaned often enough is going to justify a parking pass, according to the courts.

Comments: It is all good, but i was hoping for some slandering fun though. And BTW, good job getting at it, snoozers are losers! we're Degenerates for sure, with a capital D! Hope to run into you one day up there. It's got good climbing and good sliding...

Comments: the first time doing this route, the lone bolt on the first pitch protecting the 10- move was also one of the crappy, nailed in aluminum hanger. I never understood why only that one bolt was upgraded.

Comments: I scrambled a nondescript buttress that goes to the lookout tower. Then took the ridge straight down to Lilly rock. I saw you guys from most of the high points on the ridge line.

Comments: this was the way we always did Dragon Flake, and was shown to me as the Dragon Flake... the other one is the cheater variation. What do I know, it was 1987ish...

Comments: That's my problem, I can't justify a 16hr day for 6 pitches. I wish I did not despise hiking...

Comments: Yeah, MP is full of too much beta, that's the point of MP I thought... Still a super slippery slope.

But, even with all of this beta, you can and people do die, all the time...

Comments: I've always liked combining the first two pitches, using the 2nd pitch belay that is in the book's topo as the first belay. I have always gotten to the top in two.

Comments: I like the 2nd pitch of Dave's over jam crack. Better and more sustained climbing... some pro can be found. And with the line of bolts to the left, I really like clipping the bolt and turning the overlap/ roof to get to the ledge.

Comments: A very short-lived pain in the ass. This is my normal start to Snakes or Consolation. Care should be taken to avoid knocking loose stuff off, but that's Tahquitz...
