Comments: I climbed the bolt ladder today 5.28.13 for the first time trying aid. it was super fun!

@ryan, thanks for the rebolting, fantastic job!

@jordan, you should update the description on this page is it's certainly not manky anymore since ryan's rebolting. i'd say it's pretty bomber, although i wouldn't want to take a whipper. I prefer to top rope solo it.

if you're top rope soloing, there are three rap rings/bolts up top. I didn't use them though as, well, it's bolts in sandstone ;) in... more >>

Comments: Just climbed this today, 5.12.13 (did it a couple of time a few years ago). Route is nice and dry with a couple of wet spots deep in some of the cracks. Great intro for tahquitz. There are a couple of challenging moves for its rating;

3. Fourth Pitch - going above of pine tree ledge (perfect place for lunch BTW), s... more >>

Comments: I climbed this yesterday. the 5.6 traverse start shown in the old vogel book is tricky and we didn't do it. the step across is completely unprotected. we opted for the chute just to the left of the 5.8 start.

pitch 2, be sure to bring a number 4 and a 5 if you have them. the biggest piece i had was a number 3 and i kept moving it up 2 or 3 times as i climbed. would have been more helpful to have those bigger pieces. slab part at top has a bolt, not too tricky just stay steady on your feet.
