Comments: Bolted crack in a mostly sport area! Climber does it all on gear. Looks like both styles win. I don't think every trad or r/x route should be bolted. However we sometimes bolt cracks on Lemmon as well. If it is an area where people rarely if ever have a rack with them we bolt it unless it is a really good trad route. I mean the kind of route people will carry a rack to climb even if it is the only trad climb there.

Comments: After the traverse right to the original route you must work way right to get a high piece in the corner. Three long slings will help reduce the drag and render the piece almost moot. I skipped it and found the arete pretty easy but very committing with no pro.

Comments: If you were rapping off the BS anchors you were not close to where you need to descend. Simply walk to the far end of the low angle wall then traverse under it until you can down climb to the base of the larger steeper wall. I suggest this for two reasons: it is easily done and it will minimize the possibility of negative interactions with the boy scouts if they want to use the low angle wall. Thanks for the cooperation.

Comments: Hey Mike, I am guessing you can figure out a way to back these single bolt anchors up with the use of the rope or a cordelette. You will not want or probably need to rap off them. Feel free to bring your hand drill and add one for each of the last two anchors. You will have fun I am guessing.

Comments: Thanks Robbie, you saved me the effort. ^^^^ Love people rating routes on TR not that they can't be accurate but this route gets harder if you are placing gear. Duh.

Comments: Good for you John for getting on this. I would bet that less than 20 of the thousands who have visited the New Wave Wall ever ventured near this thing. As far as the debris goes I would guess that less than five minutes would lower the start. That was all it took to clear the rocks from the start of Holey Moley about a month ago.

Comments: Mad respect John. You seem to have had a lot more huevos than good sense back then. Those flakes in places really don't inspire confidence in the cams shoved behind them. It is a fun top-rope!

Comments: It really helps to have the topo with you. Quickdraw and El-Kabong cross at the bolt at the top of the seam on Quickdraw.

Comments: Descent is not exposed if you drop down to the base of the main wall instead of cutting over to the middle of the wall. Most people will miss the hard left Geir (gooole image) took and end up at the left end of the cliff. From here you just traverse the base until you get to a steep scramble down to the start of the routes.

Comments: Good on you for getting on it John. The crux is crazy hard and makes you believe in the rubber you paid so much for. Oh, and it has never had a second ascent.

Comments: A number of the newer routes here take a 70M rope to reach the ground from the low anchors. Please tie a knot in the belayers end of the rope and pay attention when lowering.

Comments: Hey Lar, I think John just offered to pay for some hardware to ensure that it is up to standard. I would send him your address and say thank you. John is a stand up guy who contributes to the development and upkeep of hardware on old and new routes.

Comments: Nice you did it ground up John. That crux is burly and I didn't figure out the sequence. I was not sure where to move left into the corner. I went at the first chance but I ended up back to the right using holds on Histo where it moves a little left of the main weakness.

Comments: Attempted this route today. Glad I had a long runner to use on a blocky ledge for pro. I used an RP and a gray mastercam to keep it from being pulled off if I happened to fall trying to get to the bolt about 12 feet above the ledge. I didn't fall but I could not get past the bolt without down-climbing and traversing left to the pin. From there I could not get past it. Hmmm Will have to work on this problem.
