Comments: Bolt count fixed.

The new notification feature here on MP works good, mkay.

Comments: I finally got on this "route" a couple of weeks ago. I thought that the way it is bolted was fine for the natural line of pockets that it follows. However, I did just TR it off of the anchors of "The Fire Swamp" (with a directional).

I don't know why anyone would contrive to call this route 12a when the way it is bolted follows a natural line of good holds that seemed about 11a at the most. However, this was definitely worth getting on as a quick TR as the holds and movement were enjoyable. ... more >>

Comments: My wife and I climbed here last Friday. It was pretty windy, but we were still very comfortable in the sun with no clouds and wearing t-shirts. The hike up was snowy and cool in the shade and warm in the sun. The hike was a bit long (for Sportos), and route finding was a little tricky (looking back I don't why), but it was worth it. The stone here is VERY good! It's well-featured, well-bolted, and solid.

All told, it was a fun little adventure (for the likes of us anyway), and a pleasant s... more >>

Comments: On 10/11/2013 a steel quick-link and aluminum carabiner were added to the Metolius rap-hanger on the mid-point anchor (left side) of this route in order to improve its orientation and equalization (the right-side anchor alread has a section of chain). Please leave these in place and/or replace as necessary!

Comments: The new trail is GREAT! Whoever put in all that work, THANKS!!! I think this trail works just fine for access to the Grotto also.

Comments: I got on this route last Saturday. The movement throughout was excellent, but the crux seems to have changed a bit. The bit of rock marked with 'Xs' in the photo (see link below) is gone. It was cleary glued on at some point as there is still a large swath of glue left on the rock. There was also quite a bit of dirt on the remnants of the hold which is now just an extension of the "ledge" feature below the crux. The dirt was obviously left over from when the hold broke, so it might hav... more >>

Comments: The second pitch of this route has cleaned up a lot (in comparison to the first comment). The only thing I noticed was a very large "death-block" wedged into the crack below the crux. This thing is way too tempting to use as both a hand and foot hold. It shifted and some grit fell out when I grabbed it. I was following this pitch and nobody was below, so I tried to wiggle it out. It was wedged in enough and I didn't want to hang on the rope to try harder, so there it stays, ready to guillot... more >>

Comments: Brian. This route is on the wall that is the "Taco" proper. It starts on the left side and somewhat underneath the giant boulder that leans against the "Taco". I believe that it is NOT the route called "Taco Time" in the 2008 Bingham guide as it felt quite a bit harder than 5.8. I also met a guy who said that a friend of his recently put it up. I did see a route that was actually on the giant boulder facing the Comp Wall that matches the description you gave, but it is a different route and... more >>

Comments: Thanks bheller. I fixed the description (I'm a bit dyslexic). I was just back there a couple of days ago and got to stare up at this rig in awe again! I'm glad to see that others feel the same about it. By the way, I took about a 25' fall on it once and it was actually very clean since it is so steep for a slab.

Comments: I agree. It looked great from the ground. Perhaps the lack of chalk up high should have clued me in. I've noticed way too many discrepancies and omissions in the Bob D. guide. Next time I won't let all the pretty pictures be the sole basis for buying a guidebook.

Comments: This is a really good route. Good idea on repositioning the anchors and replacing bolts. I like to do a more "direct" start from the bottom right. It could really use another bolt down low for this.

Comments: In addition to the left side start, I have done this route by approaching the first bolt from the right side and bouldering up and left to the second bolt. This has fun moves but is f'n scary. Either way it could use another bolt, or perhaps modified bolt placements.

I think this route is a bit harder than "Wailing Banshees" as well.

Comments: This area is well worth the $5 fee. There are hundreds of routes on superb stone. The bolt jobs are excellent with bomber hardware. It looks like glue-ins might be the new standard for the area. The bouldering looks amazing, and there's tons of it too. The setting is pretty amazing too. It is a true ranch with horses, cattle, goats, pigs, dogs, and cowboys.

I was just there last week. The weather was unseasonably warm, but quite nice. We did see about a dozen ticks during the two days w... more >>

Comments: I have to comment on this one. This route is short and good. The crux for me was an overhanging barndoor clip. I could move through that section without much trouble, but stopping to clip was tough. Normally I hate it when the crux is clipping, but this is a good route. I spent time on it over TWO summers before it fell! I'm glad to see it being graded a little harder now (up from just 5.12b).

Comments: Once again, if you didn't have enough slabby fun on this route, try climbing it using ONLY the holds to the left of the bolt line and avoiding the arete on the left side of the slab. You may find it a challenge (10-?).

Comments: After stink-bugging your ass up this route, why stop there. Lower down and top-rope the short narrow slab to the left of it. This is a dirty, thin, vegetated contrivance, but really fun.......if you're into that sort of thing. Avoid the crack to the right and the bushes to the left for a greater challenge (10+?).
