Location: NV : hobo's attic

Comments: Michelle, you are exactly correct. That little home, was in fact, the inspiration behind our naming of the Hobo's Attic. The location is, as mentioned, on the same mountain as the Gun Club. The Gun Club is on the east facing aspect whereas Hobo's is on the opposite side, facing west. From the equestrian park, begin hiking west for approximately 10 min, following the wash between two mountains. Just prior to reaching the toe of the mountain to your right (Gun Club Mt.), pick up a trail that start... more >>

Comments: Climbing the route using the off width primarily, may yield an easier or more difficult ascent. I don't know personally because I hate anything bigger than perfect hands and only arm/shoulder barred the upper crack until I could use face holds to escape.

Comments: Darren, we're happy to know people are climbing this route. It seems too current to have already fallen into obscurity ha ha!

Your questions are valid, here are some answers.

The ugliness of the 1:1 bolt/patched hole ratio, is thanks to some masked route choppers. We really liked the initial bolt placements as they were located at the most reasonable clipping stances and distances. We spent a good deal of time hanging around on the climb, sussing out the best possible points fo... more >>

Comments: 08/29/12, a snake is living in a hole near the top of the 5.8. See "Free Flying is Neither's," page for slightly more info.

Comments: 08/29/12, some type of snake is living in a "lay back hole," beneath the hold you clip the anchors from. While clipping the anchor, the snake was about level with my stomach and hissing. I didn't have a camera and cannot reliably describe it. It was around 2" in diameter and had largish brown splotches on its back.

Comments: Due to where the anchor is located, the toprope makes the line appear to climb left from where Ryan is. The idea is to climb rightward into the seam, where gear placements exist.

Comments: John, I appreciate your feedback and hope that i did not come across as being a dick in my response. I think your question was valid and it gave me a good opportunity to better present our case as to why we set the belay up in this fashion.

Comments: For us, not installing an anchor on the face was a no brainer. We did not want to cheat ourselves out of the full experience. We felt topping out on the formation was not only cool, but rewarding as well, because it kept the climbing sustained until that final moment when we were standing with success on the top. We didn't feel that drilling an anchor close to the topping out point was necessary either, when a perfectly good belay could be set up using the tree. If the tree becomes abused at so... more >>

Comments: This is a nice area, with fun moderate climbing, and a great view of both the Calico Basin area and the Red Rock loop. Unfortunately though, there are sections on a few routes where the bolts have been spray painted to match the surrounding rock, and it was done while the hardware was in-situ. The wall has a "connect the dots," look going on, with over spray radiating out from all the polka dots. I think that camouflaging bolts is a great idea, but please paint the bolts with their appropriate c... more >>

Comments: If you are having a hard time locating "Peaches," to use it as a reference point, look directly above the word FULL (as in VIEW FULL SIZE).
