Even wearing a top hat I still look like a dirtbag.

Location: CA : San Francisco Bay : Salt Point State Park : Fisk Mill Cove Bouldering: ... : Fisk Mill Traverse (V2)
By: Aron Quiter When: Sep 7, 2004

Comments: This a long and fun route that has a variation generously given a V4 by bypassing the high obvious route via the large ledge about 3/4 of the way up the route. Except for the aforementioned bulge and the easy topout at the end, this route is really well protected despite the hill.

Comments: Avery doesn't rate this as a "serious" climb. After trying this myself (I chickened out), and watching Brian try it (he chickened out), and chatting with drunkenmaster about this climb, this deserves a serious rating, if not a VERY serious rating. A wrong fall sends you rolling downhill and off a 5' cliff on soft, but STEEP hillside. The committing move is a terrifying 8 feet off the ground, but looking downhill, it seems more like 20.

Comments: This strarts on the left side of the arete, moving up to the highest point on the rock. This is a burly, but not diffcult V3.

Comments: This route shares the first three bolts with Yardarm (5.12b), and then moves left to some rappell bolts (one of which has seen better days), and continues up from there. There are a total of 9 bolts on the route, and a 2 bolt anchor.

Comments: Jared's description is a little deceptive:The first bolt of this climb is actually a staple (ring?) about 20 feet off the ground, and the staples of the route are the easiest way to indentify the route. If you want protection before this, bring a sling and clip into the first bolt of Yardarm (5.12b) that is just left of this route, though probably the best way to start the route anyways.

Comments: Hard 3! And no, that big jug just left of the plaque is NOT on.

Comments: I routinely use this as my downclimb from the top of the main rock at Remillard. 5.9 is a stretch, but hey I'm pretty good at 5.9 slab / dihedral stuff.

Comments: Please note that the general information about Table Mountain has changed. Camping is NO LONGER allowed in the Table Mountain area. There's a nice pretty sign telling you that the area is now day use only.


Location: CA : San Francisco Bay : Castle Rock & Sanborn-Skyli... : Goat Rock : The Great Roof (5.10b)
By: Aron Quiter When: Oct 13, 2003

view comment >>
Comments: The 5.10b part CANNOT be lead safely. Unless you like falling 15 feet and crashing headfirst into the face below. There are at least a dozen bolts in the cave, but the only bolts that lead out of it head up the 5.12 crack to the left.

Comments: No more construction, but you might want to keep note, since there probably will be again at some point, since California is, after all, falling into the Ocean.

By: Aron Quiter When: Sep 15, 2003

Comments: At least it's Eldo, and not Yosemite in my opinion! Yosemite is like Eldo, but with all the feet smoothed out from 30 years of climbing. A 5.10 trad route is absolutely nothing like a 5.10 sport route placement placement placement...

My thoughts...


Location: CA : San Francisco Bay : Indian Rock

Comments: Reading my comment, I've come across as quite a jerk, violating my own rules. Everyone I meet at Indian Rock is VERY nice, and all very accomodating on helping you find a problem that you won't be able to do that you've never seen before. I love climbing here. I love eating lunch here. I love the place, don't get me wrong, but I still think that a lot of the routes are underrated.

My thoughts a while later.

Comments: Note the change in directions to the Big Chief Area, they've been doing a lot of construction in the Truckee area lately it seems.

Comments: I disagree with Jared. This offers sustained traversy climbing for the first 3 bolts. After you get up to the outcrop on the right, climbing is simple. Groundfall is possible after the first bolt.

Location: CA : Central Coast : Pinnacles National Monument : East Side : Discovery Wall : Portent (5.6 R)
By: Aron Quiter When: Jul 16, 2003

view comment >>
Comments: If you take the caves trail and head through the first cave, as the path leads up towards Discovery Wall and either heads to a fork where you can either go back to the right parallel with the rock, or runs into it, Portent is the route in the first small dip that follows this dip up and left to a pair of rusty anchors that can be seen about 70 feet off the ground.


Location: CA : Sacramento Valley/Foothills : Auburn Cliffs : Memorial Wall : Community Chest (5.7)

Comments: I agree that you should be a 5.8 or so lead climber to climb this route. The current crux is going to fall, and soon. I don't want to be the person climbingit when it goes... Other than that, this is decent for a 5.6, and still makes agreat warmup.

Comments: Or, if you're prepared, you can stick clip the first bolt!

If you're going to top rope this climb, bring draws and clip them as you rappell down fromthe top anchor unless you want to start over again. The overhang and lack of good holdswill make it impossible to get back on route in a fall.

Also, the last move is HARD so you're not done until you're done.

My tip: Man was given an opposable thumb for a reason. Use it!

Comments: Currently, highway 1 from San Francisco is closed to traffic going to Mickey's Beach fromthe South. To get here, instead of following the 1, follow the detour that heads toStinson Beach, and once you get to the fork where the detour hits the 1, hang a LEFT andthe Mickey's Beach pullout will be about .7 miles on your right.Heading a right at thefork will lead you into the touristy beach town of Stinson Beach, where there is food andsupplies.

Comments: Poison Oak is in season again, and I'm itching like hell. We tried to clear out the pathinto the back areas, and now are covered in the shit ourselves. Yuck. It also should benoted that access into the Grotto, Mid wall, Welcome Wall etc requires an additional hike,as there is a new white gate locking the continued road for a time that is not specifiedon the information sheet. The second gate (when we were there) appeared to have been runover, and is still there, but not even close to function... more >>

Comments: I don't think that climbing is actually illegal on the CU campus. I remember reading oncea long while ago in my CU handbook that is was only illegal to climb over 15' off theground. This (I think) is to prevent people from going on the rooftops of buildings. TheEngineering center is RIGHT accross from the police station, and I've climbed there inFRONT of cops at 4am, and they don't ever seem to care. Maybe they are overlooking thelaws, but it's not my general experience with campus police t... more >>
