Comments: If you continue up the steep crack where it narrows to where you can chimney, there is a ledge with two sets of anchors, one in front of you (old angles) and the one behind you is a new anchor.

Comments: The route to the left is not a 5.7, in fact it is the start to two 5.12 climbs. The slings are just bail points. I would recommend that if you want to do the beginning section of these 5.12 routes, to just climb to the first pitch of Titus Groan and top rope it. A rats nest of webbing around a chock stone a quarter the way up an existing route is not justification for putting in anchors.

Comments: Rap bolts have been replaced. Look over the edge on the side closest to buttress behind the pinnacle to see two rap hangers above the ledge you step down to. Careful of loose rock when you pull the rope.... Courtesy of the ASCA.

Comments: The WCCC has been investigating this and has found that as far as the authorities, park and local, the trail is not to be used as an access point. Though originally all drainage coming from the monument were legal access points that were supposed to be upheld in perpetuity, the reality is that all the new subdivisions and building up against The Monument has created a land divisions that do not include these access points, so legally the landowners are told they have some sort of right to the la... more >>

Comments: This area is on private property. The Quarry next to it is open on week days. Best to hit it up on the weekends. They do not really like people there.

Comments: The route now has a a bolted rappel. Climb to the saddle before the choss begins. You can either continue up and rappel farther up canyon or, since the good climbing is finished, look down canyon from the saddle and see two bolts on the climber's right side of the chimney/gully. Make a double rope rappel and look for a small ledge outside of the chimney/gully again on climbers right. One more double rappel gets you to the ground.

You can get to the saddle in just over two pitches with a 60m ro... more >>

Comments: I guess in my brain I have distinction between aid climbs and free climbs. This is probably silly especially with all the amazing things going on with free climbing. Often when a party would like to free climb an old aid climb (which is totally bad ass and great), they will either climb it with in place gear options or do a variation where they can bolt/place and make it safer so that they are not altering the original line.

It is only fair to admit that routes done from back in the day will ... more >>

Comments: I feel it is a shame that most of the character of this route has been robbed because some hard men felt it was needed to be freed. In making it safer for your free climbing adventure, you have degraded a classic. Oh the day of 1/4"ers in the fisher is nearing an end.

Comments: After doing The Hallucinogen, this route has sat in the back of my mind as a smoldering ember. I am still trying to step up to it. I remember reading that quote from Rustie about if he didn't finish the route, he wasn't really living. Thanks for the topo, Phil. I have printed it off and it will stand in front of me reminding me of my dues.

Comments: I had some equipment from this area stolen as well. I would recommend tightened screw links on the bolt side of quick draws.
