Comments: Not to be overly argumentative, but, you have the rope through both chain links on the bottom...and, the carabiners are a great idear to keep the wear off the chain. Methinks there's a higher chance of your locking carabiner jamming its locking sleeve than either chain link failing. Just seems overly difficult to clean especially, but, nice for wear and tear on the anchor.

A set of short quickdraws might make rope pull/TRing easier too, and, still be a way to keep the wear off the anchor.

You wouldn't need both lockers IMHO. Just a single non locker really.

Comments: Rick, I note there's a route to the left known as Dark Rock, Good Rock. This route is just to the right of that route I think.

Comments: I agree, David. If there were more routes in the database, its a great idear to split this off into its own area.

Comments: Not just the fixed draw, JK, but, the rap chains are super visible. Bright shiny and huge. I appreciate whoever is maintaining routes, but, please, camo the chains. They are REALLY high visibility and the area, with the little amphitheater and paved trails below, is high traffic for non-climbers.

Comments: Why do you wish for more traffic? When I've been up there, I've enjoyed the solitude. Nice change from the popular walls in AF.

Comments: Yeah, RP, tree used to have slings (the tree below the roof used to be the end and anchor on the first pitch).

Was there a two bolt anchor on the upper face of the first pitch? That thing has to go. Maybe someone already took care of it?

You can rap down to River's Edge, too, and hit the ground from that anchor with a single 70 (maybe 60).

Comments: Nah, doesn't have much to do with ego. We all got some.

Its an easy, fairly straightforward traverse (most all nearly hands free with good, solid feet). There's a lot of unprotected climbing out there. And, the rock doesn't care how big or small your ego is.

Ralph mentioned awhile back that he took his daughter up the route and they both really enjoyed it. Said they clipped the bolts and thought it was great.

Its kinda all about gettin' out and havin' fun. If an easy, straightforward but... more >>

Good eye, nacho!

Bolt hangers for them folk and I somehow acquired the extras.

The bolt itself is a Powers stainless powerbolt. $$$. Yeah, 'cause I think you're worth it.

Comments: I always take a few cams for this lead. And, I'm not "no one".

Ha ha. I wouldn't care either way about another bolt, but, I routinely take gear for some sport climbs too.
