Very well bolted routes! Had a lot of fun out here sport climbing some easier routes then whats typical for the bowman area.

Good moderate routes overall. Some head scratchers on some routes regarding bolts. Some in weird places, some not needed, some anchors in less than ideal places. Perhaps due to inexperience. Mike et al, I don't think this applies to your routes.

Lots of potential for mores routes especially on the far left tier. Too bad it's too hot to climb there in the summer.

Btw, found a locking biner and belay device up there the other day. Call or email to identify.
