Comments: Bret is correct about the 2 lobe #3 camalot placement. The beginning of this route is a funky boulder problem now (moreso than before) and you'll want a good spot.

Comments: One of the crux holds broke off recently making this a bit (but not a grade) harder.

Comments: The route went up Wednesday and there is still some brushing to do. Eric didn't have the right tool to remove the blown bolt and will be returning soon to patch that up. Camoing the anchors is a good idea.

As for the route spot, I would have been the first to complain about another route "squeezed in" but it is a fully independent line and isn't contrived. It's a short but quality route at a grade where moderate climbers and folks looking for more warm ups will enjoy and appreciate it. ... more >>

Comments: 5.9+ man that's classic. I found it to be a pretty stiff 5.10 personally. In any case a great, long route with full value climbing.

Comments: Probably the best hand jamming at the Overlook. Surprisingly funky towards the top of the dihedral.

Comments: It's like two tricky moves with thin hands and you're done. Nowhere near as sustained as Raindance or Loose Lips.

Comments: Sweet! More ways to attention whore.

And to think people just used to put stickers on their cars and use carribiners to clip their keys to their backpacks to scream "I'm a climber!" to the world.

Comments: My first impression was too many bolts. My second was THANK YOU FOR THIS NEXT BOLT! A fun, technical (if sandy) climb.

Comments: You don't actually climb the fingercrack so much as you climb around it. I was disappointed on that front, the rest of the route is unique and exposed. Well worth doing.

Comments: Not a destination crag by any measure but a great local spot to hone your skills, especially during the cooler months. Due to the slightly lower elevation than Prescott and the way the canyon traps the sun/heat, it can often be freezing in Prescott and mild in the canyon with no-shirt climbing days in January and February.

Though it can be rough on the hands, the plethora of face holds allows jamming practice with the relief of intermittent face holds. Most climbs are short, but it still ge... more >>

Comments: Dale Bard was the first to climb it all in one pitch I believe. Split into 2 pitches it is probably more like 5.10+. I agree with Alex regarding the 2 cruxes...pretty obvious really but if you punch through there are great hand jams that await.

It's been a while since I did it, but I don't recall any part of it being "PG13." One of the finest cracks in Tuolumne and well worth traipsing around for.

Comments: I stared at this line for 4 summers figuring it would go and never doing anything about it. Kudos to Greg for making it happen!
