Comments: Had a great time exploring here today, thanks for posting the area. You can find boulders in sun or shade, if one was so concerned. Watch out for broken glass on the ground.

Comments: That crimp might've gotten softer because I thought the crux was not too hard and kinda fun, and the crimp none too sharp. +1 for sweet moves leading up to it.


Location: CA : San Bernardino Mountains : Big Bear Lake Area : Big Bear North : Holcomb Valley Pinnacles : ... : Loose Women, Loose Rock (5.9+)

Comments: Definitely tough, think I only counted 2 or 3 bolts though + anchors. Funky moves in the pockets, but kinda cool. Would be a little scared of leading on gear due to the rock quality though.

Comments: No I've done those ones too! There's another route that shares the start with this one. Then to the right is a crack which leads to some funky pockets then to bolts (Loose women, Loose rock, I presume). Then up some boulders to the right is that first 5.8 of Tombstone pit. Might be pretty new?

Comments: +1 for staying left of the bush, fun route. Crux feels pretty fair at 11b since its *so* short, even if it is a tricky 1.5 moves! Compared to Mad Season for example which is a lot more sustained at the grade.

Comments: Thought the slab down low was pretty fun! Big ledge is kinda weird, but top is fun again. I could see 10d for the bottom or sure, but not a ton of routes quite like this in the area so I guess its hard to say.

Comments: Really just a one-move crux but is totally worth doing!! The "jug" you throw from doesn't feel as good as you'd like, but just go for it you'll be fine.

Comments: So much fun! One of the most engaging routes at Holcomb I think. Thought the end was pretty hard though since you're climbing on a bunch of steep crimps and all


Location: CA : San Bernardino Mountains : Big Bear Lake Area : Big Bear North : Holcomb Valley Pinnacles : ... : Highgrader (5.11a)

Comments: Many options at the crux, start as low and right as you possibly can for more 5.11 value. Fun route! would recommend to anyone, if you can do the 10d to the right this shouldn't be too much trouble.

Comments: If Psychedelic Sluice is 5.6, the start of this is probably 5.6 too. But you could also probably call them both 5.5, either way they seem about the same difficulty to me at the "crux."


Location: CA : San Bernardino Mountains : Big Bear Lake Area : Big Bear North : Holcomb Valley Pinnacles : ... : Out of Our Mines (5.10d)
By: Jeff Edge When: Nov 29, 2014

Comments: Started with my left hand on the good sidepull to the left of the first bolt, and right food on the 2nd foot-edge over from the left, so my head was pretty much at or a little to the left of the first bolt when I stepped on. Then you traverse right, tricky! Just commit to the holds and you'll be fine. Kinda fun once you're doing it.

Probably not too much harder than 11b, probably no easier than 11a. Thought it was on par with Highgrader (maybe a little harder?), and harder than Long Arm albeit ... more >>

Comments: Going straight up the bolt line is a lot of fun and definitely no harder than 11a, if the undercling/balance hold (at the bottom of the first jug rail off the ledge) feels too far away try re-positioning your feet, you'd be amazed how much farther you can stand up down there. Super fun crux.

Comments: Thought this was awesome and strenuous, definitely stiff but pretty sustained through the whole steep section

Comments: Thought 10c/d if a hold did break, but I'd believe stiff 10b. also I count 3 routes on this face, there is another route that shares this start and then goes kinda right, felt maybe 5.9 then loose women.. to the right of that. Anybody know anything?

Comments: Thought this route was awesome, might be hard to put the anchors anywhere better due to the juggy dike at the end.

Comments: Thought this was a pretty decent route, I am 6'3" so can't comment about the height thing, 10c felt fair. Maybe 10d, I guess.

Comments: Easier and less sustained than Rawhide, I thought.

Comments: Good route, but definitely at least 10c. Probably as hard as Firepower (in Tombstone pit), the 10d's in yonder North area etc.

Comments: I counted one hand jam at the bottom, and maybe two foot jams. Other than that its a sorta strange face climb in a corner, still a little loose but worth doing once.

Comments: Also only did the first part, thought it was probably harder than 11a though it was the end of the day for me also (route #15).

Comments: There is a trad route on a boulder all by itself that is more North than the Katrina wall, thought it felt about 10d. It starts low in an easy handcrack (optional), moves to a ledge then goes up a finger/hand traverse to hands/jugs out/around a bulge. Anchors look shiny and new, anybody got info?

Comments: "grotty offwidth" seemed to be a decent handcrack with feet on sketchy rock, fun route!
