Comments: Just Spoke with the Rangers today, PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB DURING THE WEEK, repeat DO NOT CLIMB DURING THE WEEK, he said they are stepping up patrol/enforcement and WILL start ticketing next week, as well as if people continue to climb during the week, we WILL lose the quarry for climbing FOREVER! if you hear about people climbing during the week pass this info along, i do not want to lose this spot. again, DO NOT CLIMB AT THE QUARRY DURING THE WEEK! Fri-sun and holidays ONLY!!!

Comments: agreed with sorting bolt placing down, seems like the bolts are close when you dont need them are the spaced where it seems a little scary

Comments: Does anyone know about the anchors right below the tunnel/cave that about chest height? for people that have been climbing here for years are these the anchors for the well that you used to have to Rap into in order to climb?

Comments: This is a FUN solo, much better than tying in, now i admit that i was once getting elvis leg on routes similar to this, we all had to start somewhere! and yes i still do rope up and take beginers on this route, but was i being a show off jerk? no, was i trying to sound like the coolest cat on the block? no!! i was simply stating that this is a good solo to get up early for and to start the day off and get some blood flowing before you tackle some more challenging routes. Im sorry that it has off... more >>

Comments: as per the tic mark comment, you can see every hold on the as you walk into the cliffs area, basically mapped out for ya like a gym. doesnt look like anyone has hit it with a brush for some time, on the first under-cling move, i nearly slipped off due to an absurd amount of chalk being on that thing!

Comments: i do not onsight .12a and i felt this was a solid .11c as well, but.. like Aaron has stated it definitely is an endurance route, im not confident enough to say its not a .12a cus i dont climb that regularly, but i will say this was a good onsight (with beta!!) for me who is breaking into the .11+/.12-

Comments: i have never had any issues with it, i have also never heard that it wasnt okay outside the quarry, the only time i have been asked not to climb has been in the quarry, never at mammoth bar sport routes or clementine wall or the spires across from the quarry, i see that your gonna be climbing with us this weekend, lets talk more then!

Comments: trad routes with bolted anchors, approach sucks, routes ehh short and nothing to brag about not really worth the time my friends

^^ whats this bouldering only stuff? the quarry itself is only open for climbing Fri-Sun and holidays. the sport routes next to the river fair game anytime, as well as the bouldering on the river
