Angie Price surmounting the roof. Reachy for short...

No overnight camping on PG&E property MORE INFO >>>


Good warm-up. Still a little dirty and a few loose blocks. Crux at the roof and the anchors.


Left most route on the wall.


7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor with chains. Shares anchor with Price Check.

Great route, well bolted, little harder for short people.

As of 3/15/15 all bolts are torqued down. To be clear these are wedge anchors and the nuts were loose not the bolts in the rock. This sometimes happens when the hanger is loaded from different directions and loosens the nut. If the loose nuts become a problem I will install nylon lock nuts.

Enjoyable route. All hardware was A-Ok when I was there. I thought this was a better climb than Price check to its right. Two loose-ish pieces of rock still on route, after another warmup lap yesterday. The only one noteworthy is right at the top of the route, the 2nd to last "major" hold on the route, and the most obvious hold to use at this point. About a softball sized chunk that will not be there for much longer. Belayers beware.

I thought it only felt 5.8 on the last move to the anchor. I didn't notice any loose rock but maybe I missed it.

I replaced the 3/8" with a 1//2" Powers last Sunday 05/21/17. Shout out to CRAGS for supplying the bolt!

Fun warm-up! There are two large loose chunks, one about halfway up to the first bolt which seems to be really well wedged in and mostly moving side to side, the other very close to the anchor. Both were marked with chalk x's when I was there Saturday.
