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

Comments: Just got on this thing this past weekend. The layback/squeeze chimney (I laid it back) was the hardest and headiest part. I can see how the moves off the ledge could be considered R but they're really not. There's a bomber .4 at your feet, and you crimp a few times to a jug from which you can place a bomber cam in a horizontal. I agree with hitting the ledge though- if you mean the smaller ledge (the one that the pictured climber is standing on), not the one that is formed by the detached bl... more >>

Comments: Yeah. Def. not Block Route because it's below the Arch, not beside it.

Comments: Pics can be deceiving. The first pitch of this thing is a pretty serious lead. I mean, the whole thing is, but especially the first pitch, and particularly up to the first bolt. I don't doubt that there are people that can "run all over it" but I think they would be few and far between.

Comments: I disagree with the last sentence. There are several good 5.9 gear routes along that particular section (from Snake Buttress to Undeserved) of Endless Wall. Just off the top of my head, The Grafenberg Crack is decent, What a Jam is good, and Roy's Lament is also good. Two Step Arete is ok, not classic but definitely worth climbing if you dig that range (I do). Also, don't miss Black and Tan. It's .10a, but it's super good, worth doing, secure stances and small but bomber gear. I'm sure if ... more >>

Comments: Facing the correct direction coming out of the "pod" will make the thin move inconsequential. After that, you're rewarded with great pro of almost any size and much easier moves on good holds to the top. Crux is definitely down low on this one. Fantastic route, maybe the best at Beauty in the 5.10 range.

Comments: This is the second route with this "do it without a rope or it doesn't count" comment. Let's just drop trou and compare dicks and skip the nonsense. If you're a badass, then people will know, and there's no need for this type of personal hyperbole. There are a few badasses that live in the region, and they're all super humble guys and gals. You could learn a thing or two from them.

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.
