Always wear a helmet.  I had it with me but chose not to wear it.  A fist sized rock fell about 35-40 ft and hit me right on top of the head

Comments: Is this crag on the north or south side of the road?

Comments: With fat fingers, it makes using a couple of the slots next to impossible. This would feel a couple grades easier with thinner tips.

Comments: Was there today, and the ankle breaking boulder is not there anymore. FYI. It looked like it had been rolled down the hill.

Comments: The block is definitely loose and is ready to go. I was terrified to climb on it, but there is no way around. It. If you tap it, you can visually see movement, and I can't see how it is still attached to the wall. I will not be getting on this climb again until this is resolved. The other problem is that the underside of the block forms a razor edge that would certainly cut the rope if it did come off. This thing is scary.

Comments: I felt the bottom was V2/3. Not a great warmup as the crux is off the ground.

Comments: BETA warning----No dyno needed. I am 5'6", and I just got a small right hand crimp undercling and got my feet high. It was a stretch but very slow and static.

Comments: Both the 3rd and 4th bolts wiggle a little, and not the hangers, but the actual bolts. Probably in some bad rock and need glue-ins instead.

Comments: You don't need to start on Sofa Mart. The direct start is fun and is probably V4-V5 to the first bolt.

Comments: So my brother and I were on this a couple days ago, and a large pebble broke out of the right hand start hold, making it substantially bigger. Where before you could only get your middle finger about a pad deep, now you can get at least three fingers that deep. Probably takes at least a grade off of it, as now the start is no longer the hardest move.

Comments: Most fun route on the wall but still on the crumbly side. Not as bad as the others.

Comments: For "bullet-proof" rock, I sure did break quite a few holds on this turd.

Comments: Granite is not that solid. I broke holds on every route on this wall including this route on the bullet looking lower portion.

Comments: There is also a line that shares the first crux and then, from the jug, goes right through another crux and up to the slab.

Comments: It is 12d in all three guidebooks. It is probably low in the grade, but much harder than most 12c's at the red.

Comments: I agree that hanging the left draw on the anchor is a pain, hence, I hung the right, clipped in, and then pulled up to hang the left. "One for the send, two for safety". Not worth moving the anchors because it would only make cleaning harder.

Comments: Yes, the crux clip can be skipped, and the fall is fine.

Comments: Can you access from Boulder Falls. We hiked down from the upper lot, and pretty much bushwhacked the whole way, skirting "no trespassing" signs. Really was a pain in the ass.

Comments: Jon, funny, but V4 doesn't translate into 11c/d. One of your two grade suggestions must be wrong, they are mutually exclusive.

Comments: A really fun variation is to start on the jug on the far right, and drop down and left into the crimps, working your way over and finishing on Pimpin' Jeans. Makes it V5 or so, as the first two moves are the hardest.

Comments: This is a really fun problem. A few powerful moves out a steep prow. Have a spotter because of the downward slope.

Comments: So, my understanding is the that the standard sit start is from the left undercling crimp and right crimp. Today I did a lower version starting matched on a flat sidepull and then went to the right, then fell into the left undercling crimp, adding two difficult moves to get to the regular sit start. Anyone else done it this way? The sidepull I started on did have chalk on it. Felt much harder than the standard sit start.

Comments: I did the standard finish and the Skunk Rub finish. I feel that the standard is hard V7, and the Skunk Rub finish is solid V8 and makes for a more quality and not so short lived climb. This thing has a couple hard moves anyway, especially throwing around the lip while cutting feet if you are short. Hard to control that swing.

Comments: Did the solo for the first time two weeks ago. What an amazing climb. Last Friday, Apr 6th, was inspired to do a car to car time - 47:24. Today, 41:52. Goal is sub-40 minutes, but I lose about three minutes total in changeover at top and bottom with climbing shoes. I need approach shoes to compete with the big boys.
