Went up there and checked it out today. I was a bit hot, so we didn't climb anything but looks like there are some decent problems... Somewhat sharp and slick at the same time. Lots of wasps had made their homes in some of the small pockets.

Used to climb at this place ALL the time in the fall of 2009 because I spent a semester at Badger creek right down the road. Overall, I'd say it's fun climbing, but nothing spectacular. Surprisingly, some gems are abound here and there and I remember seeing some very hard climbs on steep strong rock. At the time, I envisioned them going v8+, although never sent. Some amazing scenery with a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. At the time, it was very clean with no extra trail or trash, so please keep it this way! I'm not confident of who's land it's on to be honest.

A question about the climbs - Does anyone know any developed route names or topos? I sent a lot of cool lines here (approx. 40 BPs), but didn't want to claim FA, even though lots of cleaning was required, because the area was already a known area. I have old hand-written topos that I can load on here, but I literally made everything up at the time for my memory's sake. I'm afraid that there will be an FA party that will rise up and question my madness. Please contact me if you know any development pre- fall of 2009. Thanks!
