This is a Topo for the area. Please let me know if you have any corrections.

Hey Ronn, this looks great, thanks for putting it together. The climbs at "wall right of rusty ring wall" should be: Slab Me Silly, Incredible Hulk, and Gamma Bomb (from left to right).

Thank you Mike. Do you know the ratings of Hulk and Gamma? Do you know the name of the route between Kingdom come and Whitney's Revenge?

Ronn, Hulk is a 13a, and Gamma is 12+. The route to the left of Kingdom Come is a 12b. John Flunker bolted it, but not sure what he is calling it?

Flunkers line is a variation of Kingdom come, starts the same and goes left at the roof. I will ask if he gave it a name. He's not into the internet thing much ;)

Also, Whitney's Revenge starts slightly right of Half Hearted but finishes left. I just did the first part to add some length. It would be clearer to list it on the left side.

He called the variation of KC "The Final Straw" and what you have as "All Funked Up" is that roof right? That's "Panacea Roof" 12c. Which would be in between "Remedy" and "Walk The Line" I think.

Also "Mark it Zero" is not sport and "Dihedral Dance" is mixed.

Thank you very much. I think I got all the changes in. I left Panacea Roof where it was since you sounded unsure and I think that is where I saw it. But if I am wrong please set me straight. Thank you all very much for the corrections.

Hey Ron, Looks good! A couple more changes for you:
- Walk the line is a trad route that is to the right of Pacanea Roof.
- Remedy is 12-
- Panacea Roof is 12b (Or least that is what I recall hearing and thinking after climbing it)
- Final Straw is a 12b
- Barely There is a 12c Sport route between Kingdom Come and Arete Action
- It is Arete Action, not action arete.
- You can probably remove rusted rings 5.10- sport. I doubt anyone is going to climb on those ancient rings.
- The Phoenix 11c Sport - direct start to slab me silly.

It is great to see so many people love this crag. I was wondering if anyone else climbed there. I left Rusted Rings because it serves as a great landmark. Thanks for the comments.

Hey Ronn

Just a heads up that Slab me silly and the Phoenix and mixed up. Phoenix is the one on the right. Thanks
