Comments: I saw the news reports off the toppling and noticed most of the stories using this photo as the "before" shot. Sad news but a fine reminder that geologic time includes now.

Comments: Awesome Rich! I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed it out there...it's a sweet spot with some entertaining climbing. I'm already looking forward to fall colors (and temps) there. Gorgeous. Bummer to hear about the bees on Pickled Punks...I think that's a great little line! Glad you survived.
We'll check on the tags and clear up any confusion the next time we're out but I'm sure you're right about the mix up.

Edit: Confusion has been cleared up. Tags are now in the proper places. :)

Comments: As you will probably find out, our suggested ratings here are certainly just ballpark guesses and most likely soft.
As the routes clean up and chalk up, I fully expect the routes to feel easier. Routes tend to feel a bit harder when they're brand new, one is a bit cautious about pulling hard and the best holds aren't chalked up.

Comments: Seems to be confusion on this route and the next right one. The first route right of the 5.9 was in the sustained 5.10/10+ range and has the cobbles of ill reput name tag on it. It was one of the best i did that day. I'm guessing this one is "cobbles.....". There was another steep route to the right and maybe it is goitter grabber? That one has the. 5.8 to the right and could have an easier escape to the right. I didn't do the right of the 2. We need Jason to chime in and clarify ... more >>

I toprope soloed this route 3 times yesterday and think it's a 1.5 star route...

I think you missed out on the primary reason this route is so rewarding and good...leading it with its creative and intermittent gear. The rock quality and moves are way good but the real charm in the route comes when you lead it.

Comments: Use caution on the dirt FS road 6 as two new cattle gates have been added as of July 2014. In particular, the first gate, about a quarter mile from highway 60, is a barbed wire and wooden posts gate with no reflectors. It's nearly invisible at night and on a stretch of road where most are used to driving fast.

Comments: Some quick food beta:
  • The "honey balls" for dessert at the Aegean restaurant (south end of the main drag in Masouri) are not to be missed!
  • Barbra Yiannis restaurant (northern end of the main drag in Masouri) is fantastic for lunch or dinner. Super friendly staff with great, outdoor, covered seating right along the road.

Comments: Oh, yes, Nathan, that fifth bolt is missing its hanger currently. I've been meaning to replace the hanger but haven't been back up there yet. Hope it goes well for you next time!

Comments: Hey Nathan, I don't think the bolt protecting the crux is missing (it was there a few weeks ago when I last climbed the route.) As I recall it's just below the crux bulge. I replaced that bolt a few years ago with a higher-quality 1/2" bolt after the original, weird bolt had taken a beating from falls.
It is a bit of a fall but a clean fall, if I recall correctly. Allison (the one pictured here) does the crux by getting her right hand in the crack and laying it back to get above the bulge. I'm ... more >>

Comments: The fifth bolt is missing its hanger. Normally I'd have fixed this but didn't have a nut that fit the bolt. I'll work to fix it next time I'm out there. Given the issues with many of the bolts/hangers on this route, I'm inclined to rebolt the entire route, actually.

will be here in the next few days, what's the most recent word of camping in Las Conchas?

A couple of years ago (at least) the forest service closed all camping along the river at Las Conchas in the first 1.6 miles (or so, maybe further) from the highway. So effectively no camping. But there are forest service campgrounds not too far away. Look for Redondo Campground or San Antonio Campgrounds to the west a number of miles.

Comments: Thanks for the input guys. For the time being, I've sorted Renaissance Man as George suggested (right of "Whole Lotta Rosey", left of "Ring Around the Rosey"). If any of the Standby Shack regulars have a correction, please comment.

Probably because the first half of the route is all crimps.

Comments: A really fun route with some amazing holds on it. Before you rope up, take a good look at the holds down low--there are some blind reaches/throws. The first clip is balancy/tricky so you want to stick clip it (or maybe even the second bolt.) Cool and airy finish.

Comments: With El Rito Sport in season again, I'd like to make some suggestions to help keep the crag cleaner and in better shape:

  • If you have to poop, please walk a long way from any climbing wall and either dig a hole or uproot buried cobbles for an easy hole. Pack out used TP (or, if you're one of the two people who've obviously wiped with your underpants and left them on top of the pile, pack out your soiled underpants.)
  • Stay on the trails! The rocks and soil at the crag are very loose and extr...

Also, this route description here is brilliant!

Comments: This is a wonderful little area stacked with amazing climbing. It's well worth the extra effort to get here and you're likely to have the place to yourself or with minimal others. A fine day is to start climbing at Spartacus and then move up to Jurassic when Spartacus gets crowded.
