Comments: Did the below ever get worked out on the iPhone app? Where are we in the process just curious, it's almost sending season:)

The yellow stars need to sync with app, it's a great way to keep track of routes climbed at a certain crag. If stars are yellow, then I've sent it, try a different unclimbed route:)

Comments: The climber on the right is actually on Yaka 6b+ (newer route not in 2010 edition) and higher climber to the left is on Kalyne 6b. (although i felt those grades should be reversed as Kalyne felt harder)

Comments: This is not Panselinos (next to carpe diem). It is actually Lothar Scie which lies the next platform lookers right of carpe diem.

Comments: Guidebook error: FYI, the new D'Antonio guidebook (2010), has an error on the photo portion of Spiney Ridge. It appears the route lines are shifted making Toxxxic Entertainment appear to be Purple Toe Nails. Caution here as to not head up Purple Toe Nails expecting it to be a *** 5.10a.

Comments: The “chain link” described above had been removed as of 9/2011. From the large ledge one can easily reach the higher of two bolts, clip using a longer sling, rendering rope drag nonexistent.

Comments: We saw 2 large eagles, I assume Golden's that appeared to be nesting at the next large cliff band further down from the crag. Is it possible they have moved?

Comments: Due to some loose rock before the high first bolt. I Would second the recommendation on starting up lost arrow, at the second bolt traverse left to the first bolt for FTFOS, then lower.

Comments: If comparing this to other Post Falls routes,it deserves a 5.10+ rating. It is an enjoyable route, but was a hard OS if expecting a 5.10b route:)

Comments: This route is awesome, and my opinion deserves just as much love as Pit Lizard, if not more. Great route!

Comments: The traverse is at the 3rd bolt, but who's counting. I struggled to find anything loose on this route. Not sure what the fuss is about, I would imagine it has cleaned up since the FA. Bottom line: Its a great route, and defiantly don't avoid based on rumors of being loose or choss!

Comments: MattB; it sounds like you could of been somewhere by Big-T...were you near/above Bush Shark by chance? Crackula is best approached by hiking down echo canyon from the La-Luz junction for approx 5 minutes...to the base of the formation.

Comments: The "new" Sandia Guidebook suggests heading straight up from the belay for p3...then working right towards the left facing corner. The original live heads right off the belay to a clean dihedral with two pins. This dihedral ends and heads left via a bomber undercling to a great layback eventually meeting up with the recommended line. Personally i prefer the original line, better pro and solid rock!

Comments: P3 Variation (5.9):

The left facing corner system that starts right of the standard belay is awesome. The beginning of the pitch is easily identified via two pins. After the second pin undercling a flake moving left into another left facing corner eventually meeting up with P3 described in the route description. I believe this may be described as The Liar King....however I think the variation i describe above is the actual original P3 of Second Coming.
