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: The Western Front is the first cliff you see when approaching from the parking area. It has a variety of routes from 5.3 to 5.11, 50 to 150' long, on rock that varies from okay to excellent. Most are bolted sport routes, but some need gear. It includes 3 distinct areas;
Lower Western Front - 16 routes, short west to northwest facing lower cliff on the far left, closest to parking area. There are 3 distinct sections where the routes are densely concentrated - left, middle... more >>

Comments: My daughter and I did this route as one long pitch last weekend (maybe 160'). I skipped a few bolts and used longer slings on a couple to reduce rope drag, but it was fun with no real drag. The 2nd long pitch (5.1 and maybe 180') to the top was the most fun though, it needed a couple of cams as well as the lone bolt I found, and the long runouts and wind gave it an alpine feel. I think the main route would benefit from some rebolting to straighten the line some and eliminate unnecessary placemen... more >>
