Location: CA : San Jacinto Mountains : South Ridge Boulders

Comments: Some group of campers had a MASSIVE fire right under south ridge arete, the whole side of the boulder is black, and the heat made a huge flake pop out a bit and is really hollow, then the top of the flake was broken off making a massive ugly hold. That whole flake would pop if you tugged on it a bit and the first really good foot edge is apart of this flake. The problem is pretty much ruined...

Comments: Bring some small cams for the belay. Pumpy 5.11 climbing leads to the biggest part of the roof and the 12a move.

Comments: I don't know what the safety of his route was in 2002(when this was posted), but I climbed it the other day and it was perfectly safe, 10 bolts, crux up high after the dihedral crack. Great moves, leading it on trad gear would be cool.

Comments: Not 'R' rated, I admit if you do the direct start (instead of going up the block) its a little spicy, but if your an 11b climber your not going to fall on that part. I think the original route started up the block which isn't remotely 'r'

Comments: I lead the 10d in the middle of the face, hardest 10d I've ever done, opening moves felt more like 11c. There are three bolts, and a bomber knob sling after the second bolt, runout to the top, but it's easy climbing. The climb was killer, short but I loved it.

Comments: I placed a small piece in the side/undercling jug for the first few moves, but the flake seemed to flex, I think it would have popped if I fell, but it gave me confidence to get to first bolt. The run out section between the 2nd and 3rd bolt wasn't hard compared to pulling the roof, but you need to keep it together. Don't think the climb is over after pulling the roof because you still have a 5.11 move after clipping the 3rd bolt.

Comments: I went over to checkered demon and sent it, but soon the landing will be wrecked with the poison oak that surrounds it. Great climb though, I recommend!

Comments: Not that bad to do as a boulder problem if you have a really good pad setup.

Comments: I was messing around on the traverse yesterday at sunset and right after the sun had set about 100 bats flew out of that crack. It scared the shit out of me because I just had my hands in the crack for the start of the traverse.

Comments: I did that over hanging face, it took me a while because the foot holds were so polished from so many climbers, but I scrubbed the feet with a brush and eventually got it. I would give it a V3+ due to a strange but cool (somewhat slopey) topout. It would be a V2- if the first few foot holds weren't so slick.
