Comments: Not sure on either account. The V9 I think is a mystery FA, thus no name. I could be wrong. Mr. Cox might know. Mr. Cox??

DRL Drive Direct?

Comments: Well I knew the day would come. I started rearranging the info here for Sullies to try and preserve it, as well as, make it a little more user friendly. It will take a day for the route counts to adjust, and the rest will be a "work in progress" for a bit.

A BIG thanks to Josh Gross for both all his hard work and new routes at the crag over the last twenty some years, and also for helping to sort out all the info here on Mountain Project.

Comments: Thanks Paul. Where many people walk, there is a trail. There are a lot of unsung hours that go into crag building on this scope, aside from establishing the routes, and the whole place is obviously still a work in progress. Some of the base work will take a season for Mother Nature to do her thing. Anything that folks can do to help preserve the infrastructure is greatly appreciated. Especially now since the trail to the crag is being frequented by scantily clad trail runners....

Comments: I am pretty sure it falls under the counties authority. Grants would most likely be needed, as I don't think there is government money for such things. But if we get some of the climbing community, and maybe other user groups it could be a possibility. It is also one of only two roads that access the rim trailheads too, the other is Woody, which we all knows sucks almost as much. It would be a bureaucratic project for sure.

Comments: This is an open project, unless it has already been done. It's easy to fall in love with this thing, though it's condition (or strength) dependent.... Have fun crimping yourself crazy!

Comments: Very cool Trevor. Mt. Elden still has dozens of smaller 6-12 route satellite crags waiting for love from the right folks.

Comments: What we really need is a campaign to fix that road. I mean how is that monstrous, multi diverted, 60' wide in sections, riddled with ruts, boulders, etc, taking care of our natural resources? It might be my most hated road in NAZ. But just imagine if you could cruise out there on maintained gravel roads. At least to the canyon itself. After that it gets pretty no mans land. I may be a dreamer, but I'm not the only one....

Comments: Well, that is unfortunate if accurate. Nobody wants a reputation as being a route swiper. Maybe there was a miscommunication between Greco And Blake?

And those studs are just rethreaded 5-piece bolts that should unscrew easily. I was wondering about that. I think Matt moved three bolts towards the top.

When I pulled the hangers to use on Man On the Moon, nobody was interested in this thing. I think I rethreaded the bolts without hangers in case someone wanted to slap on some hangers. Somebod... more >>

Comments: Thanks for the more complete route description Trevor. The Budwieser ledge is aptly named.... I know we have a few photos from Burcham's bachelor party. I'll try to find them. As for the roof pitch, I do remember thinking it would be more in the .12- range but only played around on it a bit.

Comments: I still have one of these homemade hangers. Seth Dyer clipped it on the last pitch of the NE ArÍte, then simply pulled it out of the wall.... Star drive death trap.

Comments: I learned a long time ago that you can't please everyone all the time. I've put up routes in every style imaginable, including ground up onsight gear routes, ground up trad routes bolting on lead, rap bolting, aid, headpointing, and even top rope bolting.

To me, it's all the same. It's a means to an end. While I've climbed a ton of dangerous terrain while establishing routes, I don't get off on it. As I've said before, I'm much more concerned about the overall quality of a finished new pitch, t... more >>

Comments: A deceptively cool pitch with engaging moves up high. Quite a bit of gear at the crux, though some of it is small. A little heads up, but not R rated compared to other R's at the Overlook. If you are working your way through the .10s here, don't pass this one by.

Comments: This thing is a real treat though still a little rough around the edges lichen wise. All the crucial spots are clean. We have partially cleaned routes to either side of CGA, so make sure you are on the right line, cause the others would try to kill you in a heartbeat. No, seriously, it would be dangerous to be off route. The line should be obvious. Though the season on this north facing wall is about to end in a few weeks or so....

Big thanks to Wade and Seth for putting in the man hours to bri... more >>

Comments: This was always on my list, but I guess a little too far down. I had wanted to at least do the right hand variation finish to Proud Father, which is now the top of Bootlegger. I'm assuming the link up works? I'm sure it would bump up the overall quality of Proud Father to exit right.

Good work you guys. The middle section looked pretty gnarly.
