Comments: If this route is too the right of park pooper, then I strongly disagree with the "best route on the wall."

Fun boulder problem at the base with big holds all the way to the top

Comments: Best route on the wall in my opinion.

Great movement and on the pumpy side, enjoy!

Comments: If your follower isn't a huge fan of crack climbing (or gets nervous on it) place a piece of gear for them at the end of the crack before pulling into the hole. They'll thank you from saving them on the swing.

Great route for the 5.9 trad climber!

Comments: The route to go for at Eastern Sky Bridge!

This route should give you a little pump and it definitely provides great holds throughout.

A must do indeed!

Comments: Easier for those with a positive ape index or for those not vertically challenged.

Great line that gets trickier towards the top.

Enjoy!

Comments: I saw Gibralter's face a few years ago and believe this crag should be returned to its climbable state where it should remain.

Please add me to the petition.

Thanks

Comments: Willow River Climbers,

Just out of curiosity-

I know that a clean up was held at Willow River last year, sometime in October if I remember correctly, will that be happening again this year?

Thanks,

Charles

Comments: Busted a nice hold today, (4/9/2012) the hold was after the second bolt and before the third bolt.
Shouldn't change the rating, but will certainly change things up!

Comments: Loose block at first horizontal break between first and second bolt.
Beware belayers, if this blows it could be interesting if you are standing below

Happy sending!

Comments: Stay to the left entirely for the full 11b climb, if you stray right it makes the climb substantially easier.
Enjoyable and provides the opportunity for some great photos-

Comments: A must do for anyone visiting the lake.

An excellent first lead for a climber that chooses to do it the old fashioned way!

Bring along the gonads a nice rack and if you have it a few BD number twos, threes, and perhaps one four

A definite classic with great exposure
