Comments: This route is made for offset nuts. Make sure to bring a full set of HB brassies as well - I only had a couple. C3s would've been nice too. A #4 is not necessary, could probably get away without a #3 too. The top part of P5 is a steep jug haul well above your gear - really unusual kind of climbing for granite.

Comments: Every time I look at this photo, I discover some new awesomeness - like blue jeans and earband over the hat... And what's that blue thing hanging off your harness next to the ATC, Russ?

Comments: Never climbed this, but from the photo above it looks like the bolt is by the cam-eating roof? It is also always nice and rare to see a 5.13 climber putting up 5.9 routes with consideration for an at-their-limit 5.9 leader going for an onsight. At the rate this place going, I'm all for bolting the entire IHC and GEneric. Just bootied a stuck #3 from one other popular handcrack the other day, yes I had to use water and yes I felt guilty for making the crack just a wee bit wider.

Comments: The rack for this: 7-8 BD .3 (or equivalent - blue metoli or green alien) pieces (half for the start, half for the finish), 3 BD .4, 1 each of .5-#3. So varied, so fun. The anchors are now nice chains on two pins and a shiny bolt. Thanks, Sam F. and ASCA!

Comments: Nice little warmup or cool down for Broken Brain. 5.9 for girls. Gear is 1 each of .5, .75, #2, #2 Friend or Black Metolius, 2 #1 camalots.

Comments: MAKE SURE TO SIGN THE REGISTER! They've moved the climber register next to the porta potty - very easy to miss.

Comments: Were those bolts placed on lead? Also, have you consulted the locals about placing those bolts? People get touchy about bolts on that side of the canyon.

Comments: The rack is more like one of each from #3 to .4. Don't try putting a .5 into the splitter from the last good stance - it's too big.

Comments: Funny, but the SOB Draw is actually the easiest to find in the entire canyon - the entrance is clearly marked:

Comments: I would give it 4 stars if it wasn't for the traversy start. Once you're done with the traverse, it has sustained varied climbing with great movement on clean rock.

Also, it was named after a friend's reference to a cat - what did you think it was?

Comments: IIRC, it takes good nuts in the corner. You may want to bring a couple of big hexes just in case.

Comments: This is a great warmup for the far left side - straightforward climbing, clean rock, and well-protected. Harder if you are short.

Comments: This route is stellar and well-protected. Do the chimney. No need for any special gear that way (no micros, no extra wide, no offsets). This route eats nuts - bring lots of slings.

#5 is not needed. I'm a girl whom #4 cracks make cry, and I sewed it up with a bomber #3 at the first wide spot and walked a #4 way up high. Some solid hand and fist jams can be found in constrictions, but mostly good cheater face holds in and out of the crack.

The only thing to add is that i... more >>

Comments: What an eye candy! I hope more women give this 5stars, so it goes on the image of the day slideshow. Just to balance out numerous images where women are objectified.

Comments: The chockstones just to the right of the climber in this picture: mountainproject.com/v/10604651... are VERY LOOSE! Don't belay from the cave, but rather from the left side of the boulder at the base. It would be nice if someone can trundle the blocks on rappel (we didn't have a second rope, so had to be lowered with some shenanigans with an 80). Oh and btw, 80M doesn't make it - the climb must be close to 160, rather than 150.

Comments: There are so many awesome things going on in this photo - I love it! Like shoe laces over the soles, approach shoes taped together, and a tiny little red backpack that makes it look like the dude borrowed it from his kindergartner.

Comments: Did this in Sep. 2012 - after much slab traversing back and forth and soloing some sketchy terrain, finally got on the route at the top of P6 (above the two-bolt anchor, at the base of the 5.8 hand crack). If I were to do it again, here is how I'd approach it - take the airplane gully all the way down to the river, locate the "Golden Boulder" (big golden boulder on the valley floor) - the route is straight above the Golden Boulder - just climb up the slabs the path of the least resistance. I kno... more >>

Comments: +1 what Erik said, please read the Watch article cited above. Please yield to the traffic and please do not park right in front of the "Road Closed" gate, but rather park in the designated parking pullout on the left.

Comments: Just a heads up, there was a big rockfall on Halloween night 2012 - friends witnessed it from the Creek Pasture around 5pm. We climbed at the Cliffs the next day and found a rubble with bus-size boulders just right from the Puzzle Factory. That whole stretch of the trail is destroyed - thread lightly.

Comments: As of 8/2/12, fixed ropes are still in place on the descent. Also, there is a big hornets nest in the beginning of the peg traverse on P2 - beware and make sure to extend the left corner piece before moving on (seemed like the tension was bringing the rope too close to the nest and riling the bees up).

Comments: It was actually created out of desperation - we were out of mixers, turned out to work pretty well!
