Comments: This route was not much harder than 10c. The boulder moves up to the first bolt are serious, but if you get moving and don't look back, you'll be there before you know it. The flared dihedral in the middle is definitely the crux. The book says pro to 2"?? Were bolts added to the route? I don't even see where you'd need 2". Small cams could help in the beginning.

Comments: The crux at the first bolt is stiff. I'm really glad there is a bolt there now. Making that move with a piton in that seam with serious fall potential would have put my tail between my legs... I wouldn't want to reverse the mantle move either!

Comments: I finally made it out to the Wonderland Slab and was dissapointed to see that Desert Delierium is dangerously runout with only one bolt (that I could see) between the ground and the left traversing roof. That bolt had webbing slings on it which lead me to believe that things get desparate up there. I'm sure a harder climber wouldn't hesitate.

Comments: I agree with Sirius completely. It is worth doing for the move left at the roof and the 7 feet after that!

Comments: The book says that Future Games Rock is 1 mile from the parking lot. Not true, it is .4 miles. Oh, and the climb is great but quite a bit harder than Invisibility Lessons and I would agree that reversing these two climbs for warm-up practices would be wise.

Comments: We didn't walk off this climb. There were two slings on the bolts with rap rings. In fact, we used the anchors to TR Sunny Delight. SD is a great route with a wild lip to pull half way up! Fun

Comments: I really liked this route. It does feel a little tenuous before the first clip and the flake above is loose and isn't worth putting anything in considering the climbing gets quite easy once you reach it. 2 stars!

Comments: I toproped this 2 days ago and pulled it right away. I'm not convinced that I could pull it off as quickly on lead but I'm gonna try! I didn't have any beta on the route and can't see why people find the move so mysterious. It was simply hard on my fingertips. Ouch!

Comments: Wow! This route is way Classic! It doesn't look like much from the ground but when you get into it, the jams are crazy cool keep you pumped for more.

Comments: Thanks Chris, I had a feeling you'd know. I'll have to go back and take a better look. 5.11c is really hard by the way! LOL

Comments: My buddy and I free soloed this and were a little surprised at the committing level with how steep it was. The holds are crazy big though and the route killer!

Comments: I found the most obvious way to pull the crux was just to the right of the bolt. The roof was less impressive than I had thought it would be BUT the jams were killer!

Comments: We climbed the route in one pitch on a 60M rope and used every inch. I didn't place pro on the last crack 'cause of drag.

Comments: Bring some finger to hand sized cams for the first and final horizontal cracks. Those combined with the bolt make this a safe lead. There are two bolts at the top but they are just hangers and require a walk-off to the left.

Comments: If you bring some medium cams for the belayer at the ledge the leader could feel a little better about pulling for the first bolt. (we didn't but...)

Comments: I really like this quick route! Someone gave me a tip to get my feet up on the first diagonal horizontal however I could and the rest would be cake and it was. Fun

Comments: Fun route and a little spicy after the second bolt. What is the nice looking bolted route about 5 feet to the right of it.

Comments: I just TRIED climbing this last week and think that something is wrong with the rating and description of this route. I agree it starts with a nice layback to a very tough crux at the end (I took a 20'er to a cam I had at the lip. Then the description says it's easy crack to the top??? By the guidebook photo it seems that you should climb straight up to the anchors and that passes 2 horizontal cracks and 2 bolts. The climbing is desparate and well above the 10a level. Does anyone have insig... more >>

Comments: Fun route with an excellent and well protected crux about half way up. I did need to hold onto the crack on the right once on the way up but it seemed to be on at that point.

Comments: I was up exploring in this area (Pine Canyon BTW) and ran into this route also. I'd never seen it before and it looks very new. When hiking into Pine Canyon it can be found when you hit a wash that crosses the stage road just abeam the large caved and nested crag (which I think we used to call Barney Rubble or Bam Bam, some Flinstone name, it's in the old Climbing Bay Area Book). This bolted route is on a western face just left of the big crag and can be reached by walking up a good trail alo... more >>
