Comments: Thanks Jon, I'm not sure where I picked it up along the way. Maybe I'll have to add a key for the descriptions to the main area pages.

Comments: Beautifully camouflaged eh?

The problem with that "baby" is that it has only one button and so made no rattling buzz - probably less than 12" long, somehow it got my attention when I was about 3' away from stepping right on it. No harm done, dogs controlled in time and a bit of re-routing got us away with minimal excitement, but it's size made me think it had probably not strayed far from its den this summer, and so that general area has more.

Comments: Yes agreed, a mega hard line! The bottom third has an 11b ** route up it, but the rest looks like it may be 5.13 or 14 ground to me...

Comments: Both these crags are on private property and so off limits to public climbing.

Comments: 9/17/14 - rebolted with stainless hardware this climb today - and added more bolts (9 now instead of just 4!). Seemed hard for the grade now, and not the 3 stars I thought 15 years ago...

Comments: 9/17/14 - rebolted this route with stainless hardware - and added 2 more bolts to reduce the possibility of a ground fall. This route seems hard for the grade - 15 years later...

Comments: 8/29/14 - retro bolted the upper slab of this route, placing 2 bolts to reduce the danger of a ground fall, but spacing remains pretty large between the last few bolts (20' runouts on up to 5.8 climbing).

Comments: I agree Jon! There is no record (in print or local gossip) of any previous ascents here.
