Comments: This whole area reaks of death. We looked around but only lots of fur.

Comments: This route has become so polished from all the traffic, my partner and I thought it felt more like 5.8. We finished on the upper pitches of Swan Slab Gully and felt the grade to be much truer.

Comments: There doesn't appear to be any lead bolts on this route, solid anchor though. There was a hole down low but no bolt, probably removed because there's a perfect crack right next to it. Didn't see any nesting owls but there were swarming sparrows.

Comments: Most of this route felt pretty true to the grade although the final move into the gully was maybe 5.6. Plenty fun and easy to set up.

Comments: There is a few lines up this route, none of which were 5.6. The line strait up over the bulge and pass the hole was maybe 5.8 and the mantel finish over the bulge and below the anchor is a solid 5.8+ to 5.9 move. If you were to skip the finish then maybe it's could be the hardest 5.6 ever. My guide book called it 5.9 with variations. Fun climb none the less.

Comments: Takes lots of good gear, 2"-4" pieces will sew it up well.

Comments: Not sure what I was thinking, climbed this the other day and it did seem to have a 5.10 move towards the top.

Comments: I hope people continue to ignore this formation. While there was nearly a dozen TRs on Goat Rock today not single person payed any attention to this great piece of rock hidden just off the trail.

Comments: Fun route with a tricky finish. This route could use a little cleaning as there is a lot of sand and moss at the start.

Comments: Thanks Supper Topo called unnamed crack, but I like Bob Cat Crack better. Also I think the picture I used is Ramsel, sorry I'll make some changes.

Comments: Fun route with great belay ledges. Gets a lot of sun so bring pro if you need it. The descent was pretty straight forward and only took 20 minutes or so. The webbing and rapp ring is gone at p1 if your planing on top roping.

Comments: The first step is so greasy it felt like 10a but with some grip 5.7 would be appropriate. After the first move its pretty easy and barely worth climbing, unless your waiting for something else to do in the area.

Comments: Took a group of newbie tradsters here and it was a perfect place for them to get there feet wet. Easy pro on huge stances, and well protected.

Comments: This is a great lead for a new tradster, only one tricky move on p1 then p2 goes clean. P3 sounds a little dicey but par with the grade. Two raps down with a 60m.

Comments: It's chert, and it seems that a large flake halfway up the 5.6 finish has broken off. Its a bit more difficult, not sure if its a full grade though. The piece was about the size of a laptop and made for a nice right foot hold.
