Comments: I'm psyched it's getting done again! I actually haven't even climbed it yet. The old hardware was so sketch that it was all I could bear to stick clip up it to replace the old bolts, and then I was tired of walking up there. It's a good winter hang though, so I'm looking forward to going back. Big thanks to Jason for the help and return trip.

Comments: There is all-new hardware on this and the adjacent 12c. A piece or two for the start and a stick clip for the other route are worth bringing up.

Comments: This thing seldom gets done, but it's really pretty rad. At first attempt, it seems like a route that's just really hard but not actually that fun, BUT, if you spend a little more time on it and figure out the trick beta, it's really fun and extremely unique. There is definite shoulder-tweak potential, so make sure you delve into it with control, and use good posture. I won't spray the trick beta here, but PM me if you like. I gave it four stars for the mostly great rock, the beautiful wall, and... more >>

Comments: I went back out there today, and those same draws were still up (over 2 weeks now). No hard feelings, but as I mentioned before, this wall is admired by WAY more walkers, etc. than climbers. I clipped all the draws together and tucked them on the sheltered ledge right above the anchors. They are near impossible to see from the road but pretty obvious to a topping out climber. Everyone who does not own them - please leave them be until the owner has a chance to pick them up, just like yo... more >>

Comments: I love this route! It's a bit more logistically annoying, but it's part the experience, I guess. I recommend lots in the 0.75 Camalot size if you're thinking you might hang some (in the neighborhood of 7 is actually a good idea). It's pumpy! I also found the 3 smallest TCUs nice for the start, but there are other options.

Comments: There were draws left on this for at least a few days recently. This is really not the best place to leave gear hanging, as there is about 200 times the nature walker/fisherman traffic as there are climbers. I have no problem with leaving draws up your proj for a bit, but it's best to use discretion. Maybe the folks that left them up didn't realize just how popular the road/trails are for walking, etc. Let's all make sure this place never has any access issues. It's a real gem. Have fun out ther... more >>

Comments: I placed a number 1 Ball Nut and a small cam (blue Alien) in the pin scar. I didn't have a lot of time to inspect, but the ballnut seemed pretty slammer. A number 2 might work a little higher in the pin scarred section. I expected the pitch to feel a lot scarier than it ended up being. It sure is a spectacular pitch!

Comments: Don't need a number 4 for this climb. You could probably do without the 2nd number 3 as well. Big comfy ledges at most belays and lots of sun - this climb is loads of fun.

Comments: Can someone give me an idea of what the grade would be if you aided pretty much all that you could? What is the hardest mandatory free climbing, keeping the aid grade at about C2?
