Comments: My partner and I bailed from the Red Dihedral on Sunday, 7/20 in a bad hail/lightning storm. The forecast was for scattered thunder storms in the afternoon, so a pre-dawn start was taken to ensure we were off before the afternoon. We bailed from pitch 7 in a crazy storm at 10:30 am. We wanted to get off the route fast and had to leave a lot of gear. Gear was left every doubled rope length where needed to bail. Would sure love to get this back.

Left gear (I think) was: yellow/orange metolius of... more >>

Comments: I agree with Michael. The picture currently displayed shows the anchors after 3 bolts, but those no longer exist. 8 draws are now needed before moving into 3-4 fixed chain draws and then anchors. It isn't that chossy/sharp, and the belayer is protected on that section because of the overhang. Pretty cool upper section, very steep. I'm saying more in the 11c range compared to the surrounding climbs.

Comments: The trash all around the park is pretty awful. Please do the community a favor and pick up some items and throw them away-a little goes a long way if everyone pitches in.

And DON'T smoke in the park..it is incredibly dry I was amazed at the number of climbers smoking and then dropping the butts in the dry bushes!

Comments: "Avoid the bailout left and stay on course through the last clip for full value"

Below that bolt there are 3 pretty good crimps...but no chalk on the direct line above. Everyone seems to go slightly left. Is this the bailout'? Or is the bailout going way left?

Comments: Don't feel like the roof is anywhere near 11a. More like 10 b/c. The third or second to last bolt before the anchors feels tough if you climb it direct and don't skirt left to all the chalk. Seems as though no one climbs it direct...hmm.
