Love this climbing area! 4 classic climbs in one area and all 4 routes are well bolted for easy clipping. Not PG13 in my opinion.

There's an opportunity to trad the dihedral.

Hey, I somehow managed to jam a locking carabiner in one of the bolt hangers at the anchors above the right side of dollar store. I ran out of patience trying to get it unstuck. I'm going to return to try and remove it, but if anyone has better luck please go for it. I don't want it up there gumming up the anchor.

That is actually a climb. It was done many years ago and will be part of the Josh's new guide when it comes out. We contacted the FA and he wants us to put up an anchor so you won't have to traverse over to the top of Push to Open. Forget his name but he did four or five trad FA's in the area.

Most of these routes, while stellar and lots of fun, have 1 or 2 suspect rocks as of 8/2/15. They are all marked with an "x" but avoiding them makes the routes a little bit tricky. Belayer beware -- wear a helmet!

I removed a very loose ~30 lb rock between bushmaster and price check this weekend. It was X'ed and a little off both routes, but could have been dangerous for a wandering climber.
