Old bolts and anchors were placed early 80s by John Barritt and Brian Jung. Everything obvious has been done. Loose rock at the quarry is hazardous, "coachwhip" snakes will chase you if you run. Low angle face routes far left (south end) of the quarry are 5.5 5.6 range FAs were freesolo Barritt, Jung and Monty Coffman
