Comments: Having just recently acquired an 80m rope, we now know one can lower off this route with a single 80m rope. I suspect the same is true for Blind Faith but we haven't tried it yet.

Comments: Ha! Didn't even notice that you can't see the rope. I didn't photoshop it out, that's for sure. The rope runs up and to climber's left.(I'm belaying her up.) This does a good job of showing how steep the crux of pitch, just above her, turns out to be.

Comments: Hey Matt, I wouldn't necessarily recommend sealant on the bolts. It's my feeling sealant tends to open up enough, eventually, to allow water to seep it and then the sealant inhibits the drying out which could lead to worse free/thaw action in the hole.
Consider a short length of steel chain (five links) on each hanger, connected to the hangers with a screw link for a nice, long-lasting rap anchor.

Comments: Fun, featured rock serves up some really enjoyable climbing. The first pitch has a good bit of very friable rock so leaders should climb with caution. The roof looks pretty intimidating from below but turns out to be quite easy. Due to the huge jugs, the roof would be 5.7 at the Gunks.

Comments: Barely passable for rock, IMO. But, to be fair, I haven't climbed on it.

Comments: You have to work a bit to make this 12a. It's entirely reasonable, and likely more natural, to move to the side of the bolt line just a bit and it goes with an easier set of moves. Nice rock on the clean headwall.

Comments: I second Daniel's gear suggestion of smaller-than-fingers gear. In addition to a purple link cam I was very happy to have two .3 BD cams, a red C3 and a green C3. It's a fun, bouldery route protected by some gear and the two bolts protect the cruxes well. Nice and unique.

Comments: Bruno, I know who put it there, as does everyone else in LA who climbs at the Dungeon regularly. His intent wasn't to piss people off (though it certainly did to a few people). There haven't been very many positive opinions about that draw, but no one really wanted to make a big deal of it or cause any hard feelings. Anyway, the person who put it there has said he intends to remove it at the end of the season. Of course, if you want to take it down or move it first, no one'... more >>

Comments: If you've been to the Dungeon recently you probably noticed the new trail from the parking area to the climbing area (and beyond!) I enjoyed working with many local volunteers this summer reconstructing the trail. Big kudos to the YMCA YES Corps, Girl Scout Troop 10026, YMCA Youth Conservation Corps and a handful of other, local individual volunteers.

And there's now a nice footbridge (dubbed "C... more >>

Just curious, but which of the admins is the one who has been excercising so much removal authority on here as of late?

I removed the above post by JeremyA. Most of this "discussion" seems borderline to begin with but the removed post was simply profane name calling.
This is the first post I've removed or edited as an administrator and I don't think any other NM admins are doing any heavy-handed administration either. Can you cite other instances of so much remo... more >>

Comments: A fun and worthy route for sure. It'll be really nice after it sees some more traffic. We pulled off/kicked off some holds and other chunks/rocks on the route this past weekend, so it's cleaning up nicely. For the time being, a helmet for the belayer is recommended.
The big, stacked flake system at the top concerned us both, perhaps unnecessarily, so we climbed up onto it gingerly.
The lack of chalk on the holds was cool--that made for real onsight attempts.

Comments: As of early September 2012, this route is missing the fifth bolt hanger, and the anchor setup needs one quicklink on each bolt/hanger. The way it is now with a single carabiner on each cold shut will twist the #!*&% out of your rope. If you don't have quicklinks, rappel the route instead of lowering to minimize rope curling.

Comments: Certainly not 10d. That must be a typo. It felt all of 11d to me. Continuously difficult ending in a tough set of moves.

Comments: Fun route and cool holds that will certainly get better as it cleans up. I added lowering biners to the chains. Hope that's cool, Karl.

Comments: I really like this route. Fun stuff. The moves remind me of True Grit but on much better rock. Not straight forward, tricky and harder than it looks from the ground. Cool, exposed position up high.

Comments: I put in a separate anchor for this route yesterday, 5/11/2012. It's down and to the left of Crack Attack a few feet where there are a couple of good cobbles for the anchor bolts and keeps the anchor over the route. If you feel you're getting cheated a couple moves by using the new anchor, by all means keep on going to Crack Attack's anchor still. The separate anchor will definitely be nice on those busy weekend days.

I also put an belay anchor bolt in the huge cobble buried in the ground a... more >>
