Comments: This placement screams offset cam. Either the orange/red or red/black mastercam.

Comments: To get to the boulder field near SB, follow the approach trail. On the second leg of the trail towards SB, you'll see a "boulders ->" sign about 300-400 yards from the main wall, if that far. I haven't been to any of the other bouldering at or near Moore's- this is the only that I know of exactly, although I know that much more exists.

Comments: Yep, sure is. That was July and it was brutally hot and humid. I was on an annual camping trip nearby, and I always hit THW. If it's a little more mild, I'll make the trek up to Buzzard.

Comments: The gear on this one is thin. I found a good nut before the bolt and a marginal small cam after the bolt- a #2 Mastercam I think. I still felt like the only thing that would keep me off the ground was the bolt. The climbing is 5.7ish until you reach the bolt, then the .10a starts. Decent route.

Comments: Nice route. I agree with the comments about the start being tough for the grade of 5.7. Three good moderates all packed in one area. Piton Crack, Rusty Bong, and Fern Crack.

Comments: Nice helmet and eyeballs. Nice runout traverse for the guy below. What the hell is going on at this crag?

Comments: I thrutched my way up this thing in late May. The bottom half was soaked so I started climbing it like a chimney. Fifteen minutes later with my chest and back all scummed up from wedging myself in, I found myself at the anchors.

Later that afternoon, my partner almost effortlessly stemmed his way up. It's a decent route.

Comments: Flexibility helps to get a right foot up on the sharp part of the slot. I thrutched it up there doing kind of a lieback to get a toe up and then rocked my weight onto it. Easy runout to the closest solid tree to build a belay. For a less heady slab lead, but a slightly harder move onto the roof/bulge, try Block route to the left. I didn't find this route to be PG13 probably because I had some Metolius offsets. I think the yellow/orange 2/3 went in the shallow flaring crack that leads you to... more >>

Comments: The move to gain the ledge on top of the arete is interesting for an .8 The flop onto the ledge breaks up the flow of what would be a decent short route with a distinct crux. Right anchor bolt is a spinner.

Comments: I spent a lot of time in Senegal and Liberia. We took the knock-off watches we got in Naples- about a dozen of them for one American Zippo lighter, and traded them for cool carvings and beads and what not. Just souvenirs. All worth about the same, really. I'm guessing your watch was worth a little bit more though, and this young man had nothing to trade.

Comments: Do NOT place pro in the thin crack at the bulge 3/4 of the way up. The thin 1"-2" flake that resides in this crack will likely break or at the very least not hold pro in the event of a fall. Very hollow and loose. You could run it out- the bulge is the best part of the route, but if your piece pulls, the fall won't be entirely clean.

A better option is to place a #5 if you have it under the bulge to the right and follow the juggy traverse to a ledge- although this probably knocks thi... more >>

Comments: If you would have followed the top of the cliff to climber's right, for, idk, no more than 200 ft or so, you would have found a nice comfy ledge with a small pine growing out of it. There is a set of rap anchors right there, just over the edge; on a small, left-facing wall. This location is the top of the 5.5 Sentinel Buttress route. These anchors are shared by all routes that top out on the Circus Wall and SB.

Also, no need to hike 4 miles down the back side. There's a trail that... more >>

Comments: To reach the top, scramble down from the Ridge Trail slab facing south. To get to the base of the route, descend Bushwhack Trail and stay left. You can't miss it.
