Comments: Note: in August 2014 I encountered a small wasp nest about halfway up (in the smallish incut/overhang). They were aggressive!

Comments: "Big ledges" might be a deceptive description; I'm pretty sure I remember the part this is referring to because I remember thinking "Hoo boy, it's gonna be hard to follow this seam!" and then I spotted some holds off to the right (which were challenging to traverse to). But they were not as far right as Birthday Crack, and were not gigantic.

Comments: I believe I led part of the first pitch years ago, as an alternate start for Waves. I remember being very unhappy about the placement of the 5th bolt; easy ground but a runout after the first four, and then when you finally reach a feature you can wrap your hands around you can't clip from it but instead must delicately balance along a ramp in order to reach the higher bolt!

Comments: This is a tremendously fun route! And long! I believe there were at least ten bolts, and it never felt too run out.

Comments: Extremely fun and adventurous climb! Varied climbing, with the slab, face and traversing under a roof. The top, after the traverse under a roof is unnerving because of the potentially slippery grass on low angle slab.

NOTE! It's very hard to find the rap anchors above Eenie Meenie! Possibly because of tree fall, but they were scary to get to and we opted to walk down to the Fat City rap; much easier to find and to access.

Comments: Felt easier than Plumb Bob (left around the corner). That route seemed both more sparsely bolted and more powerful and awkward. This one was pure technical crimpy goodness.

Comments: I don't think it's lame at all! Rather varied, as the bottom is very delicate with small holds and it does get easier through the middle. I would agree with the comment about the bolt placement - if you blew it going for the second bolt you could hit the ledge below the first bolt.


Location: ID : City of Rocks : Anteater Rock : Anteater - West : Swiss Cheese (5.7 R)

Comments: Whoever bolted this is A) tall, and B) perhaps sadistic? For a 5'6" person to reach the first bolt requires perhaps 25 feet of climbing on big, positive holds... and then a mantle move. Argh! If the bolt was a foot lower a short person could reach it from positive holds. But yes, all the moves are "easy", including the direct finish.

Comments: 5.6 for sure, and utter fun the entire way. Always surprising, but always featured. Loved it.

Comments: Once you've gone to the right at the top your anchor will probably require a large cam or some creativity. (I had to provide creativity). Also, the crux is around the 2/3rds point where you trend slightly left.

Comments: In comparison with other routes at City of Rocks I'd call this a 5.7. Easy and fun moves, big holds.

Comments: I think this climb is plenty polished and greasy!

Comments: The start is crimpy and continuous! The way I climbed it involved crimping up to perhaps the second bolt and traversing left with difficulty to insecure huecos. The crimpy difficulties continue until you latch a gigantic rail and move into the easier but unprotected section, a lot like Urban Chunks (but a tad harder). Then a final bolt, and another runout to the top.

Comments: I believe this shares anchors with Start of Something Good, and shares the crux start. After the first bolt this route angles to the right, and the crux just continues to the third bolt. Tricky moves to a big jug.
After that it eases up a bit, but the climbing remains great - small pockets, then bigger pockets, some overhanging pockets, and finally it joins with the end of Start of Something Good on sharp but positive holds.

Comments: This route actually IS bolted. Route G, Familiarus, deviates to the left after the third bolt, and Foxy continues to the top. We will add chain anchors next year - I had hoped that people would top out directly above the last bolt, as the last moves are fun.

Comments: Actually Shawn Tracy did the FA and bolted the route.
