Comments: I grew up about 5 miles from this place and used to bike out there all the time. Back then we called it Soap Rock. If you stay around long enough to ferret them all out, I think there are perhaps 15 problems to be had here. The hardest I ever got on was maybe V5, although perhaps something harder exists. I agree that the traverse is the best thing here.

Also, there used to be 2 old pins in the cracks at the top, evidence that folks have been climbing here for a long time. At the time, whe... more >>

Comments: I find Slippin' to be quite easy for the grade - I think it's more like 5.8. Still, good fun for a few moves.

Comments: Where does this route go in relation to the arete between the gully and the steep white face to the left? An old guidebook shows a 5.8 that climbs the arete - is this route to the left or right of that arete?

Right on for finding new lines on TR! There are more to be found, I'm sure...

Comments: I actually think this is a decent route - worth a few stars at least. I like P1 quite a bit, and the moves up to and just past the pin on P2 I find quite enjoyable.

Two warnings: (1) the pin on P2 may or may not be in place. A smaller cam (maybe tips-size) easily backs up the pin, so you can get the gear if it's not. (2) The traverse on P1 is a little runout; people have been known to slip off and then fall back into the corner - ouch. There are a few ways of doing this traverse... more >>

Comments: When did this route (and Solar Plexus) go up? I've looked at that wall for a long time but always thought the rock was crap. Much rock of that color on TR that is bad, in my experience. Awesome that you had the nerve to get up there and find out that it's good. Good on you!

Comments: I thought the climbing was fun, but this route is really all about 1 move. A star or two, but nowhere near as good as Out of Control.

Comments: Nick, thanks for calling P1 a sandbag - I've always thought it was damn hard for 5.10c. Nice to know others agree!

I've also never thought of it as worth a PG-13 rating - as I remember, gear is easily available almost anywhere except below the P2 roof, but gear can be found there with a little work (I've always wanted to back up the pin). On P1, there is a slot for a yellow TCU/Alien between bolts 1 and 2, and after the last bolt the climbing eases considerably - from 5.10 (or 11!) to 5.6. ... more >>

Comments: One of my favorite routes anywhere! I usually do it in two pitches to the top: One long one to a ledge just below the start of the harder climbing (just below the 5.9+ corner). Then it's about 60 m to a tree over the lip. Done this way, that second pitch is just amazing! Watch for drag, and have a blast.
