Comments: I believe there are about 5-10 holds that have been either enhanced or drilled, no glue from what I could see when I was on it about 2 years ago.

Comments: Justin - The Streak and Opposing Gravity share the first 4 bolts (up to the first anchor). The Streak continues straight up past the refrigerator block and up the thin face, whereas Opposing Gravity trends left after the first anchor and pulls the small roof and up the thin face. So Opposing Gravity and The Streak are two separate routes. I hope I cleared up any misunderstanding.

Comments: Max Snyder got the first ascent of this route 4/18/14, and it clocks in around 5.12c. This route starts with some easy 5.10 climbing past 3 bolts up to a small roof. Pulling through the roof is not obvious and feels around V6; and clipping the 4th bolt is very strenuous. Once established above the roof about 20 feet of technical 5.10 climbing guards the chains.

Comments: The key to this route is getting the improbable looking left heel hook to stick in order to bump the right hand.

Comments: Hey Kurt, the best thing to do would be traverse over on the cable to No Bama and rap there, its some 4th class, but you've got the cable so its not a big deal and doesn't take very long.

Comments: 12d? I thought the consensus on this was 13a, this thing is hard bottom to top. Some people have indicated its like a V7/8 boulder problem.

Comments: The trail where you move left from the gully to the wall to eventually access the fixed rope has gave way revealing what looks like the drainage tubes. While it is still possible to get by this section, the dirt will probably continue to collapse.

Comments: Easier climbing past 1 bolt to a stance where the second bolt can be clipped (bolts are close together its easy to z clip). From here either climb straight up following a vein of chossy rock and then move right or using a few crimps make a big move right to gain bigger holds and the third bolt. Move up below the mini roof and gain the fourth bolt (a good kneebar can be obtained here). Tricky climbing past the fourth bolt will deposit you at the anchors.

Comments: Climb up an indistict right facing corner to gain an undercling and the first bolt (tough clip). Move right using face holds to gain the ledge in the middle of the face. Make a few moves up off the ledge and gain the second bolt keep moving on good holds past the third bolt and below the mini roof. Make a big reach to a jug at the lip of the roof and clip the fourth bolt. The crux involves pulling over the mini roof and is pretty tricky after the crux easier climbing past 1 bolt gets you to ... more >>

Comments: A tricky boulder problem right off the ground ends at a glued on jug below the layback rail. Move up the layback passing another bolt and through a few sequencey moves past another bolt to larger holds. At this point the climbing eases off and the holds are bigger, pass 4 more bolts on this level of climbing to a good stance below a left facing corner clip the 8th bolt from this stance. Stem and mantle your way up the corner to gain the anchors. 8 bolts, rap rings at the top.

Comments: This variation follows an erosion gully full of loose dirt and trash (your standing on this crap) there weren't a lot of gear options, I clipped 3 or 4 rusty pins in a row, but I was a newb then so I probably missed some.

Comments: There is a 2 bolt anchor at the top, however they are not rap hangers.

Comments: This line goes straight up after the 4th bolt on Gym Dandy, but the bolt and anchor to this variation have had their hangers removed.
