Comments: This is not my route.

I did do it shortly after it was bolted (as it was still super crispy at the time). I did it again late last year (and it had cleaned up quite a bit). I felt like it was 11a, but it could certainly be a bit easier. I thought it had a very notable crux section and was a pretty good route.

There is also a route bolted near the same time (and based on the hardware by the same person) just left of Arrowhead Arete. I also thought it was 11a-ish and not quite as fun as th... more >>

Comments: Harsh! The guy did ask on another page if anyone new the name and said he would update. I've been to this area several times over the last few years and was not keen to post it. I'm not sure posting such areas still under development is a good thing. One might argue that posting any area has its downfalls...kind of like guidebooks.

I assume this guy "found" this area kind of like I did a few years ago. It kind of calls to you from the I-15. He was probably just psyched about finding such a... more >>

Comments: I think 16 years and hundreds of(probably more than a thousand)ascents would suggest it does not need a retrobolt. Bringing some midsized nuts or small cams will sew up the top...which I agree is a bit run. I think I brought a 0.4 (grey) C4 and used it. At the time, the top bolt was also pretty manky.

Comments: Good addition. Decent routes, well equipped and well camo'd, surprisingly clean. A good "first day outside" beginners crag.

#8 BD stopper for Demon Drop and .5 BD Camelot for Tilt A Whirl. You can also use that .5 Camelot on the top of Roller Coaster. 5.7 felt about right for most. Roller Coaster was definitely harder (and sandy) at the bottom. REALLY clean routes to be this new.

Comments: The reason your stainless bolts rust where the hammer hits it is that your hammer is carbon steel (with iron in it) and deposits a little bit of iron as it drives in the bolt. Aesthetically, it is unpleasing, but it is not a risk to further corrosion. I recently switched to a stainless hammer to avoid it, but it is overkill to do so.

Comments: Equipped by Bond and Babbitt in 2005. All but last 15 feet FA'd by Bond and Babbitt. Last 15 feet (and thus the last pitch) FA'd by Jon Groppenbacher in 2007ish.

Comments: FYI, the ground is currently about 6+ foot higher under the routes Bone Crusher, Zone of Exclusion, Son of Fury, Sandman, and Serpentine due to the post fire flooding and subsequent settlement of the ash, dirt, etc.

Some of the first bolts are at chest level now.

Comments: Barry0, While there are no anchors atop PG's 2nd pitch, a 70 meter should allow you to continue up and left to the top anchors of BBWolf and belay from those anchors, if you wish. This is a fabulous route.! EZ, fun and protection opportunities the entire way. Over the hill to GMs house 5.9 (to the right) is a Great!!! alternative first pitch!

Comments: What part of conundrum are you facing Ashley. Family Crag Routes? Drilling Miss Daisy? Don't Laugh AMD? or Arrowhead Arete? The only 2 new routes I saw last time was one left of Arrowhead Arete and one right of Drilling Miss Daisy...both are about 11a.

Comments: Adam, I climbed there today. I did the two new routes...both have white painted stainless hangers...that were painted at the crag on some rocks at the base :-/ Kinda lame to do that. That said, kudos to the devolopers as they are well/safely bolted with quality gear...stainless hilti bolts and pagan stainless hangers.


One is just left of Arrowhead Arete and the other just right of Drillin' Miss Daisy. As are all new routes at RR, they are still a bit crispy/chossy, but they will clean up, w... more >>

Comments: That's the correct route. I bolted this with a hand drill in 2001ish. I was going to go back and add a second anchor bolt...but this became a wilderness area shortly thereafter. It's an ez walk off. If a second anchor bolt was added it would be better. Maybe one day it will be allowed. Also, one can get a "good" .5 or .75 (can't recall which was best) Camalot in the horizontal between the last bolt and the anchor.

This route was bolted solely for the purpose of allowing for the first ... more >>
