Comments: Brian, you're right, and I think I remember that way long ago the first time I climbed there, we did climb a separate first pitch to the right (traversing from the pedastal, maybe?). Then on subsequent visits, the face to the right looked like it had more lichen then protection. I'll take a look at the books and try to straighten it out.

Comments: Lots of worthwhile climbing on this pitch! It didn't seem to let up - not as easy as it looks from the ground, for sure.

Comments: While most of this pitch was fairly easy, there were a few moves that were surprisingly steep and demanding. Overall, fairly pleasant, and a worthwhile diversion. It will only improve with more traffic.

Comments: The crux is the right-leaning crack that is directly left of the sentry box.

Comments: The route Dick's Prick was added in June 2013, and notes an anchor on top of the pinnacle.

Comments: Three of four right-facing corners; Catnip starts with the left-most corner shown here.

Comments: Simon, have you climbed this route? There's a note under VD, the next route on the pinnacle, that there's no rap anchor on top of the pinnacle.

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: I think .... rope lengths vary, and I'm *really* glad you watched the ends of your rope.
