Comments: A fun and deceptively engaging route for being pretty short. Definitely not a "gimme," especially with the small placements. The walk-off is quick, but bushy.

Comments: Yep, that sumac needs a haircut. ("Soon," says Bueller...). Since you're here, I highly recommend getting on "Another Quick Shower" just to the right. Not to be missed if you're hanging out at Wall 1.

Comments: Awesome, Andy! So great to see you enjoying the lines. (Yes, my middle name is Bueller. I'll be back up there this Saturday, hopefully getting a bit o' cleaning done...)

Comments: Well said, Eric. (The #4 was originally for building the anchor at the top before we put that rap ring in---I think. Who knows? Training weight at this point...)

Comments: WAIT! Were you there on Saturday? Damn, we were up on 5 doing maintenance. The few things I heard wafting up the canyon were quite complimentary, haha. Wait until you get on the some of the other routes. (Ping me next time.)

But, thanks, Matthew. Yeah, kind of a shocker: lots (and lots) of legitimate trad in S.B. Still seems impossible, but thankfully it ain't.

(And thanks for adding the pic of where to leave the creekbed. I have the same shot, but waited to post it until we cut up the big bay... more >>

Comments: This is a very nice, well-protected beginner crack for practicing a few of your offwidth techniques midway up (stacked fists, hand/fist, etc.).

Comments: Well, if it's any consolation, we'll be putting our "sport" crag on here soon, which is north-facing and has a 4-minute approach---but sadly only 40 routes...

Comments: Thanks, Cori. If the wear on the tree or the constant gnawing turns into a rat's nest of webbing, I'll most likely put in some rings. Glad you got up there this weekend (hopefully you hit the pools afterward).

Comments: Hmmm, you may want to say "10' from the ground when you swing left." More like 20+ if you're on the fall line (and you still need to pull that rope). I have proof (and yeah, that's you, pal): mountainproject.com/v/108938456

Comments: I listed most of my routes. All the ones without entries were put up by the other members of the goon squad. They're on MP daily; hopefully they'll start filling in the gaps.

Glad you were able to get some laps done up there. Lots and lots to climb. Wall 2 has some very good, long routes, too. (Thanks for the heads-up on the bees. A few swarms have moved through the last few times we were up there. As long as you stay at least 8' away and aren't wearing dark clothing, you're usually g... more >>

Comments: The first, far right long crack on Wall 2 - a great route to get acquainted with the wall. Take the crack straight up over a few lips, then decide which diagonal crack line you want to take to the oak on the ledge up left. Excellent pro throughout. Rap off the ring.)

Comments: Thanks, Steve. Yep, lots out there to climb if you're not expecting a "Crag o'" approach.

Given the immediate and sequential nature of the walls in the canyon (and the fact that routes were going up everywhere right away) Wall 1, 2, 3, etc. was just the default. Hopefully, in time, we'll see some nicknames that are more characteristic and descriptive that eventually stick. (It was truly a temple of doom situation when we first went up there---everything could've been called the PO Wall and/or G... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the stellar endorsement, Andy! (If that doesn't get some traffic on the walls, nothing will.)

Comments: (There's also the photo of Herb climbing it in 1955 on page 65, hence the "Oh, wait...")

I think it's safe to say that any rock in the front country that doesn't require a heinous, grovely bushwhack has been climbed---and most of the stuff at the end of those heinous grovely bushwhacks has been climbed, too, especially if they're under 5.11. But kudos for keeping the pioneering spirit alive.
