Comments: The approach directions for this crag can be made very simple. Follow the stream bed, using whatever trail system that you find. This is the first climbable chunk of rock that you will find on the left side of the stream. It begins immediately out of the stream bed and continues up the hill. The rock is of very good quality and tends to be vertical to less than vertical in most places. If visiting in the summer, it may be best to arrive in the afternoon to avoid having the climber and belay... more >>

Comments: It's a shame that these walls are not taller and more traveled. The stone is really of exceptional quality. No loose stuff here! With more traffic, many of these routes will clean up could really get at least another star. A great setting to hang out in the summer too!

Comments: This is a cool route on great stone! Most of the pockets are much more positive than they appear from the ground. It's a fun one, especially for the grade in AF!

Comments: I really enjoyed this climb! It has very unique movement and I didn't really find it to be all that slippery (The Hell Area is far more slippery!). As with all the routes here, they could use a good brushing from lack of use.

Comments: This route is rad! Interesting climbing! One of the key crimps near the top is about ready to break. It's cracked and flexes quite a bit as of 5/15. A little glue could totally save the hold, but it would probably go and just be a touch harder without it.

Comments: As of 5/15, the large jug before the last bolt desperately needs some glue. It's ready to come out. If I had epoxy with me, I would have fixed it. It would be a shame for this great route to have this hold come off since you grab it with both hands, clip from in and then later stand on it while clipping the anchors.

Comments: Did a hold break on this one above the top roof? Felt way hard for 11d!

Comments: As of Spring 2015, this route has cleaned up quite well. Although its not as good as many of the other routes at this cliff, it's worth doing as an alternate warm up.

Comments: Despite the rock quality under the first bolt, this is a pretty good climb. Interesting movement throughout. It would certainly benefit from more traffic to keep it clean.

Comments: This route is much more fun than it appears. Cool sequences. The top single anchor appears solid as of 2/15.

Comments: You need to use the mid anchors to get down unless you have an 80M rope. A 70M doesn't even get you close...I tried.

Comments: Returning 5 years later after my first attempt and being much stronger, I still found this route to be quite difficult between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. It's also a little spicy there as you would get pretty close to decking if you blow the 3rd clip, or at a minimum, you're going to fall on your belayer! That aside, this route has awesome sequences and is truly worthy of a go if its not too close to your limit.

Comments: I think this might be one of the better lines at this cliff, save for some of the 12's. Blowing the 2nd clip might have some consequences, but a finding a good clipping stance or just stick clipping the 2nd bolt takes care of that issue. Worth the walk down here for this route!

Comments: This route is fantastic! A nice blend of steep sport climbing mixed with smeary granite foot placements typical of LCC. The bolts have glue placed on them to prevent corrosion. In my opinion, the bolts are ready for replacement. All of the studs and nuts are heavily corroded. Judging by the exterior appearance, I bet at least one of them is sketchy inside the bolt hole. Just a matter of time til we find out which one is severely corroded inside.

Comments: This one has cleaned up pretty well. It is still a little fragile if your feet stray and bump any unused stuff. Great sustained climbing, not a jug haul. Requires good technical movement to make some of the poor holds useful.

Comments: I've believe that Mission Control, 12a is doing the traverse right at the 4th bolt and linking into the finish on Three Amigos. This matches up with the originally posted description and feels like 12a. If done this way, the bolt protects the crux at the right traverse quite well. Fun slabby moves...and I hate slab! Straight up the arete is 11c, with the crux being the initial boulder problem. This version I would not want to fall on, fortunately its easy up there.

Comments: This is a pretty unique climb. It requires a lot of strange body positions, but it is really fun in my opinion.

Comments: The gate on the biner of the first fixed draw is still in the same condition as of 11/30/13. Clip it, but stick the second for sure. The crappy biner still does a fine job of redirecting the forces if you blow the dyno and keeps you from slamming into your belayer. The crux move is rad as hell!

Comments: If you a intimidated by the bolt spacing, bring a few .75-#2 Camalot size pieces and you can add more protection if you like. There's even a thread for a sling before the anchors. It's plenty safe and you're on easy terrain between the bolts, but there are plenty of placements that I noted along the way. Get on this thing, its fun!

Comments: Although it climbs like a trad route, and might go on gear, it's bolted. The moves into and through the overhanging crack system are fun!

Comments: As of 9/22/13, the flake at the end of the initial boulder problem is about ready to come off. It used to flex a bit, but this is more that it used to. There are cracks at the base and you can see it moving and hear it cracking once you complete the sequence and lung to it. Needs some serious amount of glue behind it before this route becomes much harder and possibly injures someone.

Also, the bolt that's 2 above this section is coming out. More than just a spinner, the rock's erodin... more >>
