Comments: Careful ascending a fixed line with the rope running over sharp sandstone there. because there is some distance between the anchor and the end of the cliff (15' it looks like) the rope will stretch and bob around while the climber is ascending it. The sandstone will cut through the rope and it could kill your partner. you have to be super aware of that stuff. Some people put duck tape on the rope and rock where it's unavoidable, and the leader should be standing right next to the rope ensuring i... more >>

Comments: It is not the Red Tower of Pain, that is left of this line. This line shares the anchors with Ambulance Driver and starts immediately to the left of Ambulance Driver. It is literally just 3' left of Ambulance Driver. Red Tower of Pain is a steep line that starts up some overhanging choss which leads up to a vertical arette.

Comments: WARNING:

I climbed this line today and noticed a serious safety issue with the fixed quickdraws. All of the fixed draws have aluminum biners and all of the biners have warn groves in the basket. The penetration range is from 25-40%. Keep in mind that the sharp edges produced in these biners can cut your rope in half if you fall and get a hard catch. Even if you do not get a hard catch, you can still get a core shot from warn biners. It has happened in a number of different areas, most notably t... more >>

Comments: CAUTION:

The second and third bolts on this route are in need of replacement. One of them is severely bent and both of them have been drawn out of the rock excessively. Keep in mind that if you fall on one of these bolts and they fail, you are going to take a free fall onto the slab. So just keep that in mind when climbing the route.

Comments: And the combination pulley itself should be backed up with a quickdraw.

Comments: The crux is the bottom 10 feet of the climb. The route is the second route to the left of Pig tree. This route is a trad lead route however the middle and upper section of the route offers little to no placements for solid pro.

Comments: Mixed sport lead (PG-13) (requires .3 - 2 sized Camalots)

This route does have some sport anchors however you need to bring up a few pieces of trad. The main area that requires the trad gear is the top. There are no anchors on the last 15 feet of the route. Bring a fair variety of small cams. The route is directly to the left of Cactus Garden right over the walkway chains at the bottom. This route has a safety rating of PG-13 because the trad placements are not the best and the bolts are quite ... more >>
