Comments: Fun mini adventure!

Perhaps a bolt was added but when I did the route in March 05 there were only two drilled piton for an anchor.

Comments: At the cattle guard after crossing the creek turn left, away from the Jacks. turn right onto an access road and follow it for about 3/4 a mile to the hill below the cliff. There are a few camp sites along the access road and a turn around at the end. This will save you some walking.

Comments: I think Paul's comment was in regards to one that I posted that is gone now. I had commented that the 3rd Pitch (2nd if you don't count the walk across the large ledge as a pitch) was one of the nastiest pitches I have ever climbed, tons of loose dirt and rocks, I had to empty out my shoes they were so full of dirt after that pitch. Still a fun route just be ready for loose dirt climbing.

Comments: The third pitch may be the worst climbing I have ever done, lots of dirt and loose blocks.

Comments: A fun variation is to start with the bolted line just left of the start of this route ( 9+) to it's bolted belay. Cut right back to Lover's Leap for p.2, follow it to the next good ledge. Cut back left on an obvious ramp and climb an awesome face about 20' left of the cracks on L.L. it's about 9+ using small TCUs and a piton to a bolt belay. Last pitch heads straight up around a small roof and through a fun face to the summit and could be combined with the 3rd pitch. This puts you to the left o... more >>

Comments: This is an excellent adventure, a clean line through a sea of choss. A hearty thanks to the FA team, this was by far the most exposure I have ever felt in the canyon. Superb bolting job and vision to pick out the line. The 4th pitch felt hard for the grade to me, maybe because it is a long and sustained cux, once through the crappy start the rock really is perfect though. I was surprised by the slab above the cux of the 5th pitch, nuff said...

Comments: ...Third Time is on the left side of the formation.... The route has a short but stout crux on some what questionable gear followed by a 5.10- runout on friable lichen covered rock. Good gear can be placed from a large hold just after making the crux move, but then it's pretty much runout to the top.

Eds. the photocopy once referenced has been deleted. It's unclear how the photocopy got linked.

Comments: The lichen covered start of pitch 1 is much better than it looks and if it was cleaned up a bit would be quite good 5.9 underclinging and jamming. The upper part of the 1st pitch looks like a total gimme from the ground but is much steeper than it looks. When I led the pitch I missed the crucial #2 camalot placement and was looking at a career ending fall from the 5.7 moves at the top. The pitch could probably use a bolt even with the #2 placement, this would allow one to reach the h... more >>

Comments: The right hand crack is 30 aught 6, 11b and the upper pitch looks awesome. The first pitch looks like choss. The 1st pitch of Road Runner is quite good though and is more like 10-, not 11d as suggested in Rolofson's guide.

Comments: The crux seemed to be before the first bolt to me, protected by good TCU. There is a chain on the anchor at the top that makes pulling the rope easy, it seems some of the bolts may have been recently replaced as well.

Comments: Great route! From the top of the second pitch (shares belay with Pope on Dope) we moved to the right and climbed an excellent 5.10 pitch with three distinct crack cruxes to the top of the rock, highly recommended. The second pitch seemed more like 5.8+
