Comments: This is a decent chunk of stone.... Bigger than it looks from the road.

Comments: Thanks for the post, Losbill. So is 5.9 the actual grade on this route? Boston Rocks has it at 5.8, but it definitely feels more consistent with Watusi and Topaz in grade.

Comments: If anyone has any historical information on this route, I would love to hear it. Truly a neglected gem of a climb.

Comments: I should probably clarify that the accident on Tarzan in 2011 was the result of what appeared to be a leader being unfamiliar with an auto-locking belay device. The leader had completed the first pitch and was belaying his second. When the second asked to be lowered in order to get back on the crux section, the leader dropped him into free-fall all the way to the ground, approximately 40 feet.

I have always found the protection to be adequate, and a bolt would not have prevented this accident.... more >>

Comments: I just noticed a video camera in the parking area fastened to a tree. Is this area actively under surveillance? I know the parking area has been the site of many car break-ins in the past. Does anyone know who put this up?

Comments: Some of the holds in the upper face are a little suspect. A rather large one broke off recently resulting in a pretty gnarly fall. Careful what you pull on!

Definitely the easiest route in the Corridor. Fun, but nothing fantastic.

Comments: If there is a harder 5.8 out there, I don't know about it.... Very serious climb at the grade. That said... spectacular route!

Comments: Blowup (5.9) makes for a nice, though seldom done, 2nd mini-pitch. It may or may not have a small thorn bush growing right beneath the roof. Follow easy ramp to an obvious roof with a heel hook and toe jam.... Dirty but fun and way better than the easy corner that makes the top portion of Post Road.

Comments: I recently climbed Endeavor with a single 70m rope and I cannot recommend trying to rap with just that. The tree in the center of the climb is small, dead and worn halfway thru and cannot be trusted as a rap anchor. If hiking down is not an option I would have the second trail an additional rope just for the rap. Double ropes get you down real quick and leave plenty of time to sample the excellent single pitch routes at the bottom.

Comments: Shame about the bolts.... This is a very nice face climb and would have been a very fun lead...

Comments: I'm calling this the Bushwhack Boulder. The crack up the center is fun and about 5.6.

Comments: The bugs are so bad here in summertime that I won't return until fall. I was able to locate more good problems and even two short trad lines in my last few visits before the black flies and Mosquitos chased me out. Should make a good winter destination for mid week training sessions....

Comments: IME gave me a printed topo with several moderate routes listed but I lost it in the last move. I do recall them mentioning a "really good" 5.6-5.7 slab route approximately up the center of the cliff...

Comments: I don't remember there being much pro for the first 35 feet of climbing but this is certainly one of the better 5.6 climbs in the Trapps. Makes for a nice approach to the last pitch of High E when the area is packed with guides on the weekend. This route is often empty!

Comments: Did a nice little trad route on the steep buttress. Good pro and pumpy moves on an overhanging face following a zig zagging crack. About 40 feet high with some loose rock toward the top. Cams and small nuts sewed it up. Maybe 5.8.
