Comments: This climb is phenomenal! Very much recommended for those who enjoy delicate, technical lines such as War Of The Worlds and The Planet Eater. All three lines are classic and comprise what I refer to as the "Lord Of The Rubber" trilogy.

I suspect the first bolt is so high as to not intrude on Just a Fantasy. A 0.4 C4 may protect some of the runout while adding rope drag.

Comments: *** WARNING ***

An active beehive has been reported behind the flake that Senior Saga is on. Approximately 8 feet left of the 5th bolt.

Comments: A nice addition to Wind Wall. Fairly sustained with slopers, mantels, and delicate feet. A crux at the start and one at the finish.

Comments: Ha! I am not sure I would be able to clip even with shoulder length draws. My tactic for next time is shorter draws that I will just clip at my waist. The fall isn't very far and totally clean, just desperate. The finish really makes the route so it would be shame to avoid it.

Thanks for the name and FA info.

Comments: The second to last hanger fell off while I was at the anchors. I was able to locate the nut, but not washer, and hand tighten it. I'll start carrying my wrench in my pack and put together a small maintenance kit. Apologies for the amateur repair job on this one.

Comments: Thanks for putting up the routes and sharing them with the community. I look forward to checking out the crag!

Comments: The reason pitch 6 ends where it does is likely an artifact of rope length at the time. A 50m rope, which is just over 160ft, would not have reached the final anchors.

Comments: Updated the description to note the link-up and the 70M rope requirement. Promoted EFR's comment to a condition report upon request.

Comments: Updated the route properties to reflect the retro-bolt status and added the FA information.

Of the three short routes to the left of It Crack I found this to be the best and hardest.

Comments: This route is amazing! While the crux comes low, the climbing and rock just keep getting better. The dihedral finish is phenomenal and makes for one of the longest pitches at Milagrosa. The adequate, but not great rock quality, at the start keeps the route from being perfect.
By the way, I totally used the ledge out left. Now to return for the sister line.

12 bolts to leaver biners; morning shade until noon.

Comments: Warning! There were a half dozen wasps in the horizontal crack near the sixth bolt on March 15, 2014. I was stung both times I climbed the route. They did not bother us while climbing any of the other routes.

Comments: The guidebook lists this as a 5.11b/c. Perhaps the current rating of 5.12b/c is a typo?

One of my favorite lines at Isolation Canyon to date as the rock is stellar and the climbing is sustained. Small rests reduce but never eliminate the pump. The movement is thoughtful, desperate, and varied. Kudos!

Comments: Clipping the third bolt is a scary proposition, even with the fixed draw in place. There may be potential for a groundfall. That said I did not look for supplemental gear.

My solution to pulling the roof was more traditional. I'll have to go back to try the overhead footjam. A wild roof no matter how you pull it!

Comments: I would not recommend hiking directly from the Finkton Wall to the Spaghetti Western Wall as the trail is faint, overgrown, and filled with boulders. It is probably best to hike back along the main trail used to enter the canyon and take the Spaghetti Western Wall turn-off.

Comments: Updated a few of the route properties: name, FA, and type. I was tempted to switch the rating and number of pitches but refrained.

Comments: Updated the route description to reflect the retro-bolted status.

A very nice line reminiscent in both rock quality and style of Jailhouse Rock at Prison Camp. Ample rests break the fun sequences. I found it better and easier than The Other One.

Comments: I left my cheap sunglasses at the base of Tough Enough at the Rough Rider Wall on Feb 15, 2014. You can leave them there as I will be back to retrieve them and delete this comment soon enough.

Comments: There is an unlisted sport route to the right of Gray Matter. I've heard it is around 5.12- and isn't on great rock but haven't climbed it myself.

Comments: The anchors are approximatley 6 feet left of the anchors for Needle Noggin at the base of the seam.

What is the intended start? Do you (1) Scramble to the ledge from the right, (2) climb the chossy looking weakness by Critic's Choice or (3) clip the first three bolts Needle Noggin.

Comments: Fabulous route with nice variety. My favorites at the crag so far are: Go Speed Racer, Arterial Flow, and Critic's Choice, in that order.
