Comments: The top crux seemed contrived. The hard right out of the seam didn't make sense as leaving the seam is very difficult and exits the natural weakness that continues straight up. Good route though.

Comments: The bolt line is poor at the beginning, to far to the right. The logical line trends up the left side. The rock is pretty bad quality for half the climb. The climb is worth doing but be careful of the rock at the beginning.

Comments: Mandatory stick clip or don't fall it will hurt. Third bolt is hard to clip for short peeps. Good route. The bashy is kinda a joke should be replaced, easy ground I guess Eldo people would say.

Comments: Several bolts at this place have wobbled for many years (over 10 years ago) and def. need replacing. The rock is also very questionable in several places. Fun place we climbed for years, but be mindful if you go.

Comments: Has anyone sent this thing lately? I'm wondering if a hold broke. The crux is fairly tough, I'm curious if the grade is still around mid-12?

Comments: The locals call this place 'Tick Rock' for a reason. Expect thick ticks on the hike in till June.

Comments: Pretty sad little crag, many of the routes probably shouldn't exist....
The crag faces southwest and west, and it gets pretty good sun.

Comments: Sharp, short, and bouldery, fun sequence and worthy. Probably the best route at this crag with Midnight Express. Skip the rest of the crag.

Comments: We added a new sling rap anchor 3/2/13 to the higher tree at the second rappel so you no longer have to wrap off the scary tree.

Comments: I found this route much easier than 'The Ticket', both similar with breaks, I am tall though....

A cam is nice before the first roof to assure the clip, we had nuts, but a #2 BD or small cam would fit in the area, several options. The fall how be it slight, might not be fun.

...Jesse's comment is funny, is a route grade harder because it has less protection?

Comments: Agreed, the bolt in the middle of the plate sucks/impossible to clip till you've gained the top of the plate. It would be better placed lower so you could clip then attempt the low percentage, no foot move through the big plate. Hard climb, we guessed grade, couldn't stick the crux sequence.
