Comments: If you can climb the P1 crux (after the first bolt on the face for me), you can climb everything on P2. The runouts are awesome. Excellent route with a bit of everything, and the slab is definitely the highlight!

Comments: I really enjoyed this. My first 12b and totally safe and easy to work on.

Comments: I'm 5'11" +0 ape, and I can do the move statically. I'll decline to grade, but this is worlds easier than Walking with a Ghost at 11b.

Comments: This is a hard one to grade. I couldn't get anywhere at all on it until one day when I put it together quickly. If you can hold onto the slopers, then it's not that hard, but it takes a fair bit of body position and strength to hold on. I voted easy V5?

It's a totally fun one to work out though and should be a great part of a circuit once the moves are dialed.

Comments: Are you supposed to be right under the sloper or off to the left where the sit start jugs are? I suck at dynoing, but I might as well start in the right place.

Comments: No warm up, and I still thought the lower boulder problem was no harder than 5.11, but I'm a strong crimper.

Comments: A HUGE piece of the lower roof fell out sometime in the last 2 weeks. The crux at the 2nd bolt is different but not much harder.

Comments: Yes, it's contrived, since you can go from the sloping rail straight to the top. It's V5 for me going from the rail to the crimp before the top.

If you think it's V1, you're not doing the problem.

Comments: The tree is gone off the SW face downclimb. It still goes just fine though, but it's a little harder. Luckily, you're only 10-15 feet off the ground by that point. I'm sure you could find another easier way, but I didn't bother.

Comments: If you're downclimbing this off the summit, the tree at the bottom is gone. You can still go the same way, but you'll have to make couple harder than 5.0 moves to get down the last 10 feet. It's not bad, but you can't chimney the tree and rock anymore.

Comments: This seems like it starts as for Major Tom only everything is on. To make Major Tom a V3, then you have to consider the arete off. It's harder than V0 but no harder than V2.

Comments: If everything on the left edge of the boulder is considered off, then this could be V3. To make this happen, go left hand up to the flake/edge thing after the slots and go straight up or slightly right from there. If you go back left, it's way easier.

Comments: I brushed crap and lichen off all the holds on this, so I don't think it's been climbed before, but if so let me know and I will update the name/FA info accordingly.

Comments: This one is fine to do alone even with 1 medium pad. I fell off the big move a lot until I figured out the beta. From there, the topout isn't too bad.

Comments: I don't think anyone has been on this in a while. Quite a bit of lichen.

Comments: I wonder about the big disparity in grading this thing. My (worthless) opinion? If you have the core to hold your ass off the rock, then the holds are all pretty good. If climbing roofs is foreign to you (that was me), then it's going to take some work to climb this thing. I'd say it was easy V4 for me, but who cares, it's fun to climb. Now that I can do it, I'd totally put it in a circuit, because it's enjoyable, just like A7-V1.

Comments: With an 80m, we linked 1-4, 5-8 (little simul), 10-11, 13-15, 16-18. Pitches not listed we scrambled unroped. I thought the route was a touch more dirty than last fall, but I'm sure some traffic will clean it up. Most of the rock was solid save for p18 to the top and the hard mantle variation on p7(?). Be aware of parties below you as there were 3 groups climbing today. I tried to be as careful as possible and still knocked one rock out of the p19 gully and that's without dragging a rope through... more >>

Comments: If you're short this could be 5.9 and a spicy first clip (we didn't bother with a cam), but if you're 5'10"+, just stem and use your feet and it's pretty easy to get to the jug out left. I practically had a no hands stance below the reach.

Comments: This route has some cool moves stacked one on top of each other. Too bad it starts so high off the ground and finishes early with easy and runout for no reason climbing. 11a seems fair to me. Takes great foot work to onsight and the final crux mantle is cool.

Comments: I tried the sit a few times today but mostly just broke off holds. Looks like it will go on some wide pinches, but I didn't get it on my short visit.

Comments: I just hopped the fence today and parked across Alameda in the large, obvious pullout. Nothing you'd make a big trip for, but if you live or work close by, it's good for a quick workout. The 2 crimpy problems are actually decent.
