This is the start of the route.  Very easy start on less than vertical rock.  Plentiful holds in the left facing dihedral.

Comments: I've heard that often about the start of this route. It's a pullup on good holds to either a heel or a high step. I don't think it's a V2 move though. If it was, this route would garner at least a 5.10a- a difficulty that's just not there. It feels a bit heady because it is a move that requires some effort, and you're still below the first bolt which is a bit high. It's not V2 though. Most people, if they're at all sketched, will stick that somewhat high first bolt. Do that, have your bel... more >>

Comments: I was blown away by the quality of not only the rock and problems in this park, but the aesthetic quality, ambience and manicured nature of the park itself. Thanks for all your effort and hard work with regard to establishment, documentation and access, Aaron. This place is a gem.

Comments: As of April 2014, most if not all of those routes are equipped completely with hardware and have solid hangers and anchors. I looked at/climbed most of the ones you mention on that list. A friend and I personally tightened hangers on Belly of the Whale and Super Amazing Sea Monkeys. The state of the crag is, as far as I know, open and climbable. Please be kind to the area and if you see something that needs to be packed out, please do so. Thanks in advance, and have fun. It's a cool little... more >>

Comments: I was deceived by both the route and the party that got on before me. They were clearly stronger. The bottom was very insecure (for me). I got exactly one good fist in that entire ~20 feet. I did the Wham Bam variation. Once you hit the traverse jugs, it's as if you've been pleasantly rewarded for the grovelfest below it. I love this route.

Comments: Very cool shot. Much quicker to do as one long pitch, though.
