Comments: There are some longer sustained 5.12 sport routes that stay dry in moderate rain further up above with a bit of a bushwhack to access. The local FD would give you the shirts off their backs, but they do not have the capability to rescue you from up there, so I'm not posting directions. But if you are self sufficient and motivated to explore, the routes are there, and quite good. There is also plenty of new route potential back there.

Comments: There was an accident here on Sunday 5/5/13 related to re-threading the rope at the anchors/lowering. My most heartfelt wishes for a speedy recovery for all involved.
Please, if you climb here (or anywhere) please make sure you understand how to re- thread your anchors, double check and make a clear plan for lowering vs rappelling with your belayer before you leave the ground.

Comments: The face below the roof has some flakey exfoliating spots which are clearing up as the route sees more ascents. The rock above the roof is solid and clean.

Comments: Glad you liked the route Joe. I don't think it's necessary to do a sidepull at the roof though.

Comments: This anchor was recently retro bolted with 5.75"x 1/2" Power bolts and chains. (most bolts here are 5.75" x1/2" Power bolts)

Comments: This is sandstone. It really needs a full day to dry out after rain. It is 1000 times more fun when dry.
