Comments: Incredibly well-protected now, all bolts, solid 10, and the necessary crux holds still hold their edges... unlike a lot of other N. Table routes.

Comments: Interesting but short...by the time you get to the 'climbing', you're 20 feet off the ground.

Comments: The first pitch is really fun but not very challenging. The second pitch had a bunch of lichen on it, was a bit more difficult, but was half the fun.

Comments: The middle flake seemed to groan a little, I trusted it to climb on but hesitated top put a cam behind it in case of a fall, although lieback moves would get you through. It's probably a better idea to stem, and face climb....

Comments: What a challenge! Got this one in on Monday before the weather moved in. The 5.7 approach isn't actually very difficult, it's one move at a time over blocks that returns to class 3-4 depending on where you traverse to get there.
The top anchor currently consists of a hex, an old tricam, the ancient piton, and an old bolt. The webbing is equalized and run through two opposing non-locking beiners. We had no problem rapping off of them. Plenty of placement for pro, there are 3 fixed nuts (one... more >>

Comments: Great route and incredibly sustained. The big flake marked with an x seems fairly stable (epoxy?); however, making those traverse moves without the use of it seems to make the finishing moves substantially more difficult (still very doable). Either way, a must do!

Comments: At the overhang, you can either go straight up the bolt line to thin hands/slopy side pulls (my book calls this 11...) or use the crack 2 feet to the right, (with the bolts just at your left hip) 10b,
one of the more interesting climbs at the crag, & well-protected.

Comments: This route starts the same as Quicksilver (which goes straight up the face through crimps over the roof 10c? Erica however moves to the right and over the roof via a large flake (at bolt 6), the crux is getting your feet set on the roof prior to continuing to the finish. As of today 6/10/13, there is only one (sissy) hanger at the top, you can however clip this and continue past it to the chains for Thunderhead, on the ledge and to the right.

Comments: Although the tree stand is still "broken", the climb down is simple: there is a rope there and still two good 'step limbs'. We hauled a dog over there today and easily passed/lowered her. Decent climbs, good texture on the rock, most cruxes seem to have "tricky" feet.

Comments: FALSE, PVS and The Green Zone do not share an anchor. However, the anchor for Free Up The Weed does.

Comments: Wow, led this one today with the beta from Mr. Mabe's book and wanted to follow the old bolt route. Could have been one hell of a whipper. Anyway, I got spit off it once and would add that RAP CLEANING THIS ROUTE IS A PAIN IN THE A@*! as the line ascends up and left.

Comments: This route screams balance right from the get go!
The first bulge threw me, for being difficult to read during my onsight attempt, and then from being tired, so did the roof. However, the cruxes are well-protected, and the moves are there. Love the Eiger.

Comments: Shmeh... climbed this as my warm-up, not very exciting, and the anchors set up a horrible top rope - lots of sharp edge drag. There are better routes here to warm up on.

Comments: The start has some deck potential, and the crux comes in passing bolt 2-3. Enjoyable moves and the flakes/arÍte can be climbed several different ways.

Comments: Fun route on great holds. The crux finish stymied me for a minute, but the holds and 'stem' traverse are there!

Comments: The crack pictured is about 30 ft to the left of Mabe's description for "large crack". A stiff 5.9, but ample pro placement throughout! Onsighted this yesterday and in the process did a lot of gardening!

On the top, on the 4th class ledge, there is a great place to sit and belay, and rather than walk off, we walked to the cold shuts and simply rapped to the base of 'Body English'.

Comments: Definitely a two, maybe even a 3 crux climb.... The first one is moving towards the third bolt, which isn't so bad, just more commiting than anything.... After the top bolt, commit over the overhang 2 was a bit strange, a number 2 cam can be placed in the crack out left with a runner to protect just above the last bolt giving me ease in making the last transition. I suppose that one could switch across the face back towards body English, but the roof was a fun maneuver.

Comments: It might be a better idea to park at the Nightworm Pinnacle to hit the trail to Rebel Wall more directly. There is no great way to enter the trail off the road, but there is a cairn near a small shrub that leads through the switchbacks up. The trail is a bit faint and ends up being class 4-ish at the top, which can be interesting with a climbing pack but is straightforward enough....
