Comments: Kumba is much harder, probably V8 like Dean originally rated it.

Comments: The "added" last bolt was placed too far to the left and is a little hard to clip. Great route though. The "Javelin" unprotected start goes up and left to get to the first bolt.

Comments: The runout rising traverse from the second bolt is VERY serious if you loose your shi$.

Comments: I removed two of the three pins in the Summer of 2012 after confirming that bomber small cams can be placed.

Comments: Just did this route again on Sunday, really good. Took me a few goes to remember the thin sequence near the top. Solid 5.12. C'mon people, anyone else getting on some of the harder faces?

Comments: Pretty solid for 10a. Been a while since I let this one and it still feels HARD. Great route though.

Comments: I just replaced the first two 1/4" bolts on the first pitch with 3/8" X 2 1/2" Hilti wedge anchors. Merciless, sharp crimping to a very thin, technical crux move around the last bolt and still another couple hard moves to get into the giant flake. Second pitch is way harder, more on that later.

Comments: Time for that pin to go away. Bomber gear about 4 inches below (purple Metolius) and another one 18 inches below (blue Metolius) the pin. The crux is the move off the big underling flake to a very small left hand crimp then a good high right foot and throw to another bad crimp up and right with the right hand. The moves getting to the big undercling flake are not bad, maybe 11 but you would have the bolt clipped by then. Great route.

Comments: Not sure what happened to this one but no way is it 10C. I saw BrassNuts get shut down hard trying to lead this.

Comments: Your rating is compared to what other climbs at Woodson? Trust me, v1 max ( short person) for the move getting on the slab.

Comments: The crank off the ground is by far the crux. After that, maybe V3/V4

Comments: I see your problem Juan. You are too far to the right. Paste the left foot in the orange dish and launch for the slopey top with the left hand. Bring the right hand up to the slopey top and thrutch to the top.

Comments: Just did this problem again on 12/25. Temps in the mid 70's. Took me about 20 tries. Left foot in the orange dish and launch for the slopey top.

Comments: I have TR'd this route (mini-trax) more than a few times over the last few years. I was giving it one last run prior to leading it, since my belayer wanted to boulder at Manx, and broke off a crucial knob above the second bolt (not sure if that was last season or the year before). This is now the crux. After three more days working it I was able to do it again clean, on TR. Probably 12d now but I'll wait to rate it till I lead it, hopefully this season.
