Comments: There is a really fun 5.10b on the backside of the DC boulder. It was in the 2010 guidebook labeled as unnamed with no stars. We had a blast knocking off some moss and figuring out the moves. Very cool movement the whole way and great oppurtunity for pictures.

Comments: I thought the start was great! Really cool movement all the way up. I thought this was harder than funkadelic, with a spicer finish to the chains.

Comments: You can't really put things like fallen trees, dirt piles, and stepping stones into the directions because things change every day. I got lost the first time I tried coming here and my 3rd edition guidebook directions seemed completely off. Basically, I parked at a large pulloff (on the east side of 715) below the Swift Camp Creek parking lot. You follow the trail right off the parking lot that goes downhill and follows the creek. You follow the creek until it COMPLETELY T's with the creek (you ... more >>

Comments: This is a "pretty good" route. Start is a little difficult for the beginning trad climber (first 10 feet). I will say the rock at the top is very sketchy...loose boulders in such. Also, the picture posted of this route is incorrect, that picture is actually showing Calypso II.

Comments: This climb is scary, hard.......fun, long, exposed, and on of the best routs I've ever been on!! I'd say the run-out to the first bold is a good 30ft. or so, which was quite scary but rewarding. Probably the best route in the RED.
