Comments: A fun route and a long pitch to boot, but if you stick to the corner religiously it definitely feels harder than the given grade (maybe oldschool 5.7+). Also wished I had a few more small stoppers for the upper section.

Comments: 3rd bolt(?) is looking pretty bad, actual sleeve is sticking about .5-1cm out of rock.

Comments: Just a shot in the dark here but does anyone know of any rock on the East/ South East side of the Olympic Peninsula? Will be back that direction in a month and if the rain breaks it would be nice to get a session in...

Comments: Climbing with dogs at this area seems a little confusing, what I have figured out so far (and I may be wrong so please correct me) is that the new shorter access is not open to dogs and is extensively signed as such. Well behaved dogs are allowed on the older and longer trail through the easement. So if you want to bring dogs to the crag you have to suck it up and use the longer access trail.

Comments: A little confused, thought the furthest left was Night shift (high first bolt) and the far right was an 11ish climb.

Comments: Was curious about the walls on the north side. There's a tower-like formation I hiked past beyond sick bay with bolts, kinda looked like an easter island statue. Also was interested in the big cliffs about a mile up (Chief Charlo?).

Comments: great route but the hornet convention at the top was a little problematic

Comments: The raps off the top are sketch. The tree is dead and looks pretty weathered. when we topped out it was easier to down climb the gully and the slab below to the anchors for the top of the sport climbs in the corridor. Also if anyone has a drill and the motivation the bolts at the anchors are looking a bit old and the other set is a pair of old loose welded cold shunts.

Comments: Went to the area last summer, was suprised how much rock was out there (must be at least a couple hundred in the guidebook). The best part was that in the morning the east side of the lake was in shade, when it got hot there we went swimming and then in the afternoon the routes on the west side were in the shadows.

Comments: It's not that tall but the crux move is out over a steep drop-off so is a bit heady, the move to clip the last bolt was a bit sketch so I used a few stoppers and a long sling in the crack at the back of the "room", probably was unnecessary but if you slipped clipping the bolt would be looking at a 20+ft pendulum.

Comments: Not an R, protection is good. I used .75-3 BD C4 for the route in that order. Also can be done with in an hour of the parking lot so not a grade III

Comments: I fail to see the PG-13, the crack will accept up to a BD-4 any where. Pretty sure it can be done with in 1 hour of the car therefore grade 1

Comments: Falcon guide has beta mixed up but route is easy enough with out it. Went right at roof and up short corner crack them belayed at moat. Second pitch was low 5th and didn't see any value in slinging horns (only pro) belayed at tree on top.

Comments: Easy way to reach the anchors but the first pitch of peretto's bro is a much better climb and only a little harder

Comments: Climbed routes this Jan, all seemed in good shape, the anchor for the last 2 has been equiped with chains so is a good rap for all points. All bolts seemed in good shape, even if they were not the routes are pretty secure. The only sketch part is the run out on the 4th route between the last bolt and the anchor

Comments: Second bolt high, best part of the route is the last 2-3 bolts.

Comments: Allright climb, well protected, broke a foot at last bolt years ago but overall worth a lead
