Comments: Cool movement if you're into face climbing. I found the crux pitch to be the second pitch -- much more sustained than the one move wonder boulder problem pitch 6. Bring 17 draws at a minimum. No gear bigger than red camalot unless you're going to do the upper pitches of DOWT.

Comments: The whole route is low angle with only a few 5.8 moves. The OW at the top is great fun and a good intro to #4 size crack climbing. Bring one and walk it all the way up for a top rope on lead.

Comments: Incredible climb. Great pro, awesome crack. My friend rightly pointed out that this climb would have a mile long line were it in the valley.

Comments: This climb is fun and underrated.

We climbed this route today and it is still in need of some cleaning (I'm happy to help with some instruction). A small amount of suspect rock remains but there is definitely enough for safe climbing. I found the first two pitches to be full on 5.8/9 climbing, comprable to The Line. The roof finish was memorable and exciting. Psychedelic Tree is well on its way to being a leap classic.

Comments: Low angle fun. Good rock and friction. Crux move feels like 5.9 if you're 6' tall and can hold body weight on a fist jam. Great climb if you can beat the heat.

Comments: I found the anchor at the top of this climb to be in need of a replacement. Two cold-shuts; one is a rusty spinner and the other is worn half through.

Climbing the right hand crack without stemming left is a nice variation if you're looking for more of a challenge.

Comments: The 5.9 variation on P4 is great fun. The OW at the top can be protected with a #2 and #4. I found taking your helmet off to be very useful in the squeeze, just don't fall.

Comments: 5.5? heh. 5.6 climbing with 5.9 route finding, perhaps!

Comments: w/r/t gear size. If you climb it in one pitch you likely won't need a #3; however, it will come in handy while building an anchor if don't link the two pitches. Excellent sustained climb.

Comments: Roof move is quite mellow once you commit. Well protected with a blindly placed #1.

Comments: Fun climb! I found the step around on the 3rd pitch to be the crux.

Comments: As of Saturday June 18th P3 is still a bit wet near the top. Nothing that will derail a clean lead - just bring some chalk.

Comments: This climb is short and easy. Crux is the move over the slight ceiling but you can stem through it.

Comments: Lots of poo in the undercling. Fortunately I let my buddies go first so when it came time to lead it I didn't get too messy. Well bolted.

Comments: Climbed and camped here a few weekends ago. Is it true from the comments above that this area is day use? If so we got lucky camping out on a Saturday night. We didn't leave the Grotto until nightfall and set up camp down by the reservoir. We saw a Sheriff in the morning and he appeared to be giving us the stink eye from afar, but didn't ticket us or the car the night before.
