Comments: You can skip placing gear between bolt 1 and 2 and not hit the ground... trust me.

Comments: Save some juice getting to the anchor, I didn't get any pro for the last 10 ft, and the climbing wasn't easy.

Comments: The base of this route is guarded by a lot of vegetation, including stinging nettle.

Comments: To fill in some blanks for the route description copied almost straight out of the guidebook: Start out with thin, technical climbing to get situated under the bulge to a short, bouldery section (not as hard as the thin section). Gain easier ground with several spots to rest, and then head to a short, shallow, right-facing corner. After the corner, the real business begins. If you follow the bolt line which I believe is the intended crux, it's hard .12c climbing and involves high feet and usin... more >>

Comments: Somebody put an X on a solid piece of rock, I pulled this in every direction, and it didn't even wiggle.

Comments: I agree with Mike, the crux on this thing felt hard for the grade and would make for a proud on sight.

Comments: I've been out to these areas while bouldering and saw these mini-routes and looked here for route info, just like anyone else.

Comments: Don't let the R scare you away from this route, the bolts are right where you need them and all the falls are clean. If there aren't enough bolts for you, a red tricam can be used in between the 5th and 6th in a small flare right before the 5.11ish mantle.

Comments: Really a "classic" two bolt route, common WT. This would have been left as a highball in some areas.

Comments: I talked to the FS LEO, and any climbing within 3/4 of mile from the West Bear Gulch trail is closed to the birds.

Comments: The topo is a little off, you start out by climbing the easy crack on the left to a high first bolt, then pass the first overlap on the face, and then work your way to the arete to a good rest. After a decent stance, you can make your way onto the face to harder terrain the suggested grade or follow the arete up and then onto the face towards the anchor which is not as far left as the topo suggests. This route has excellent stone with fun movement, the only thing is that it is a little short w... more >>

Comments: Info for variations:

The first pitch variation is excellent and checks in at about same grade as the 2nd pitch crux, the only thing is the gear is a little harder to place. From the ledge, it looks thin, but there are good locks where you need them.

The black corner is amazing and with good pro, the hand traverse is fun in its own way, but do your follower a favor and protect the traverse otherwise they could get slammed hard into the 5.9, right-facing corner if they fall.

Comments: There were only 5 bolts on this when we climbed it today, there is a bomber #2 Camalot placement before the anchors if you need more pro.

Comments: This route didn't seem to wander that much, I stayed on the right side of the bolted line the entire time.

Comments: Keep on bolting, the SLV could use more sport climbing areas! What I'm saying, though, is that I have a hard time believing 3-4 bolt routes are worthy of classic status. This area looks like a galaxy with all the stars your giving these routes. Don't get me wrong the rock looks good for the most part and I bet the routes climb well. Unfortunately it's a bummer when all that ends in 20 or so ft.

Comments: Has anyone climbed the massive roof crack, and if so, how about some route info? In my Oak Creek Climber's Guide, it says there is another face route, but I have not been able to find it. Does anyone have info for this one?

Comments: Wet Mountain grades have always felt a little inflated, but this one is definitely not! The crux on this one would be a proud onsight, 1 the gaston is heinous, and 2 it's hard to tell what you're trying to get to.

Comments: It seems like there is some FA bias going on here, these routes look super short with choss at the start of some of them!

Comments: The 1st and 2nd pitch can be linked and a #5 is optional, we only used it on the 1st pitch. If you link the last 2 pitches save 2 #2s and 2 #3s to do the 5.9 pitch.

Comments: The first half is a choss pile, and the second half is less than par. It doesn't matter how much you "filed" this route, it would still suck!
