Comments: Also there are bolts on the far climbers right of the cliff that you can use to rap down to the base. Two guys were out there bolting today in that area, so maybe a new routes going up!

Comments: With the exception of the cave that you have to use on the last belay stance, the route is getting cleaner. The third pitch isn't too bad.

Comments: Anyone know how to get there via the NCT shortcut? We took the rail tracks from the corner of old 64 and that was pretty long. Climbed a variation of the Book of Saturdays. Calling it "The Route to Glory". 5.8 might be a bit of a sand bag on the grade for the top two pitches. Vegetation makes the whole thing very hard, but the pro can be pretty bomber. The second (third on Book of Saturdays) can be pretty sketch.

Comments: Pretty sure this got up'ed to a 5.11a because of a critical hold breaking on the start.

Comments: Very thin protection on climb. Managed to get a Trango #1 in a flake very close to the base, and two micro-nuts higher up. Micro nuts likely would not have held a fall.

Comments: Thin Thin Pro all the way up. Bring smaller sized cams.
