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

Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : The Cornerstone : The Mustard Seed (5.8+)

Comments: I agree that this is a great route for beginners, and it's also a pretty good warmup route for an 5.8.


Location: CO : Boulder : Boulder Canyon : Sherwood Forest : Sheriff's Tariff (5.11a)

Comments: I think it's supposed to be 5.11d if you go over the roof and head left. It's not .11a, but it's not .11d either. Probably (by canyon ratings) an .11c... If you head right over the roof, it's about .11a.

Comments: Maid Marian is a dumb route. And it's loose. And there's friggin spiderwebs everywhere on the route. And it's not even a good warmup, one move is MAYBE 5.8, I don't buy a 5.9 rating.

Comments: One of the only climbs that I know I'm going to miss about Sport Park. I don't really think the first couple of moves are .10d, but I think this is actually an 11a move over the top roof.

Comments: The crux was a dyno for me, it seemed that a few more inches would've helped a little... Still a fun move though, and a great hip workout.

Comments: Fun route. Worth the effort, you can find some good swings if you fall!

Comments: I thought I could solo it, and then chickened out at the crux fifteen feet or so off the ground. Good thing too, as I fell when I had a toprope on a few minutes later. Cool climb though, with good rests and a balancy crux.


Location: CA : San Francisco Bay : Indian Rock : Indian Rock : Beginner - Watercourse Area (V2)

Comments: I think you're confused... The watercourse are would not be a very wise downclimb, there's only one route up it that's "simple".... V2 may be a little overrated, but that's what it's rated at.

You might be thinking of the section of rock that's immediately to the right of the watercourse area, which has a downclimb in it, and is probably 5.3 - 5.4.

I'm going to put together a linked imagemap of indian rock with pictures of ALL the sections of rock, but I haven't had time to get up there in a ... more >>

Comments: This route was quite fun, the pull up moves over the roof are interesting and puzzling. I hope you like laybacks.

Comments: I really enjoyed this climb, and I agree with Brian about stick clipping. I don't like stick clipping, but this clip involved an interesting move that had my butt above my head. Had I popped off, I would've landed on my head from 8 feet up. In my experience, that's not real fun. If you're 7' 2", that's not a problem for you, as you can probably just reach the bolt.


Location: CA : San Francisco Bay : Castle Rock & Sanborn-Skyli... : Summit Rock : The Molar (5.11a)
By: Aron Quiter When: Jul 6, 2002

Comments: I would say this is probably an "s" rating, as the crux is a few feet above the first bolt, and the potential for groudfall if you screw up is high. Finding anything to put your hands on is VERY height dependant in the crux, and there's not too much there if you're short (like me).

Comments: Mmmm... heel hook fun. Holds are huge, but every move was really reachy for me.

Comments: One of the most fun pumpy routes I've ever done. Crux is a balancy lieback motion in a very exposed part of the route. If your fingers aren't too strong, dynoing will be your only option, but it's worth it! Cleaning this route is a major pain in the ass, and toproping offers only one shot at the route, which is good.

Comments: I climbed this once a long while back, and unlike the rest of the people talking about this route, I didn't find the top the crux. While that move was really tough, the move that help me up again and again was getting onto the slabby block about 1/2 way up the climb. Maybe I'm just not flexable enough.

Comments: Burrrrnnneeeyyy. Only a couple of resting points on the way up. Very interesting moves on the top and bottom, with scarce deminishing feet in many sections. Beware!!! The 8th and 12th bolts are loose, and will probably pull out on someone pretty soon.

Comments: Getting in and out of the caves was fun. Try the variation of using no grips below the first cave. Tons of resting places on the way up the slabby face. Climbing pretty straighforward.

Comments: Looks like this climb used to be a lot easier due to the foot holds sloping out over years of use. Still a fun route, it's easier than you think.

Comments: Thin, sketchy. That great foothold you want to use will fall off.
