Comments: The seam above the ledge is what I meant ... no pro, and ledge-fall!

Comments: Whatever you do, don't climb the seam that's over there on the left. Trust me on that.

Comments: I don't think there is any gear available besides what you get that ends up being at/below your feet as you reach for jugs.

Comments: Both of those options aren't great - the hanging belay is what Seth said, and it's also pretty easy to lock yourself down if you try to link it and fail. A third thing to consider is doing a very short first pitch, then linking the last two.

Comments: That P1 rappel pinch eats slings for breakfast -- they HAVE to be replaced often. Inspect carefully.

Comments: I've worked on making sure every route has FA & descent information -- nice to see it noticed ;-). Glad you got down ok in the end.

Comments: While it's a good route for a new 2nd, it's NOT a good route for a new leader. As a well-experienced new leader needing a vertical nap, I was simultaneously sleepy and horrified on this route -- very sparse pro. But very easy. Just don't fall.

Comments: Micheal G and others - I don't boulder myself, so I don't have an opinion on organization. However, paralleling the guidebook is probably best. You can add areas (and I see that you have); let me know (email me through here - I do check that email more often) if something's not working for you to organize as needed. Thanks for your contributions! Best, JSH

Comments: Rich, what was the 'BITD' Uberfall route? I know it involved a drop to the earth from a hang, but I can't remember where it was.

I added this as a route not to set the record straight, but to describe the common descent in order to link to it from all the routes in the area. Hopefully to give a few people an idea to walk off every now & then.

And for what it's worth, I've seen a rope over it! Both in the context of protecting a nervous downclimbing adult, and for a kid's TR. Not sure what S... more >>
