Comments: BETA-SPRAY.

I have seen numerous people whip off of the top of this climb. It's really not harder than 5.10 once you have the beta below.

After you clip the last bolt you can pull back under the roof and get a good lefthand hand jam rest in the horizontal. From here I switch around my hands, and reach up over the lip to a good horizontal and then match. Throw a left heel up and reach up to an incut left hand side pull. Turn your heel into a toe, stand up and hand foot match your right foot th... more >>

Comments: There is very little crack climbing on Big Bang. I did all of one hand-jam (flared through the crux), and one finger lock after the crux. Don't be as intimidated on this thing as I once was.

Comments: The tree has been removed and with an offset 00-0 tcu you can protect the crux pretty well.

Comments: From your pictures it looks like this climbs skull in the stone but skips the crux since the water is up. I'm going to walk this cliff line with your pictures when the water comes down in the next few weeks and if this is in fact a new route then I will contact you about coming to bolt/lead it. Otherwise it's coming down.

The same goes for all of your other DWS routes.

On another note do you know what R actually stands for in climbing? And why is this route marked as trad if you didn't do it ... more >>

Comments: I have seen two people, both solid 5.12 climbers, fall on this thing between the first and second bolt because of the rock breaking. Be CAREFUL going to the second bolt. If you blow up you will more than likely hit the ground. It could really use another bolt between 1 and 2.

Comments: Don't forget that bolts cost money and without organizations like NRAC we wouldn't have all of those awesome new lines. Make sure to donate some money to them on there website here, newriverclimbing.net/.

Comments: Because it's private property, and the owner's insurance company told them to tighten down on the trespassing. We are hoping that something can be worked out in the future.

Comments: As of now it seems that a logging company has placed boulders in the road out to the south side crags and they are impassible. This of course hinders access. Check with WaterStone on before heading out or use your own judgment.

Comments: Do we really need to have areas duplicated? It seems messy and with the new sorting feature I feel that everything can be resolved and that the pics can be updated to the old current areas.
