Maidy bolted TR anchors and named this climb "Monkey Flower" according to her comment on the adjacent climb. See below comment

Erik and I actually placed the original anchor up top and started cleaning both the cobble face and the cleaner face to the right a few years back.
The right side ("Monkey Flower") has an 10d/11a move at the top after moderate climbing.

The climbs are really short and rock quality is extremely poor (particularly on the cobble section) - so we left them as TR's and passed on bolting.

There is an additional issue with this rock being directly on top of the hiking trail. It is difficult to keep packs and people out of the way of the through traffic and you hazard knocking rocks off on hikers so be courteous and take care."

^^^^^What's your point, Mike?^^^^^

Looks like a repost of comments for Cobble me a climb. If you have an original thought or comment post it, otherwise why repost negativity.

JTLA Tolins addressed the issue in his response to Maidy's post.
They didn't care for the stone, but JTLA Tolins did and put up a nice challenging route. As he indicated there's ample space for hikers and through traffic to pass and not be bothered by packs, ropes, etc.

Ally, I don't have much of a point or even an opinion - just a FYI from info I've noticed.
