Comments: FWIW, I thought it was reach/height-dependent. A shorter climber like my partner that day had a much harder time than I did.

Comments: Alternatively, an orange Alien/#0.75 Camalot can be used. Nice route.

Comments: Alternatively, a red Alien and a green Alien can be used between the 3rd-to-last and 2nd-to-last bolts.

Comments: Jim, good points. FWIW, we had just done what we understood to be Left Standard a week or two prior to this route. We followed features and descriptions, and we even found gear which matched Left Standard information. In fact, we drew on one of the topos submitted for Left Standard. I'm guessing P1 may be shared with a left-most variation of Left Standard. Also, there is no way that anyone would do what we did as P2 and call it 5.3.

Edit: looking closer, your red line is one Deb considered... more >>

Comments: JVM, idiot writing here...it means it's a crag probably best for non-beginners and non-high end climbers...which means I would recommend it for the mean +/- 2 SD part of the two tailed curve of climbers.

Comments: GDW, thanks for the input. Oddly, p 272 of Rossiter's 1999 Rock Climbing Boulder Canyon guide lists Heat Wave as having 3 bolts, protecting with RPs, climbing an arete, and being a 5.10c. This little route climbs a face mostly, has 7 bolts, and is not 5.10. The bolts look newer than 1999, too. My guess is that it is newer than that.

Comments: These climbs are in the shade and probably little traffic...which allows the vegetation to regrow. We spent a good bit of time cleaning out this crack, leaving a decent pile of dirt and debris at the base.

Comments: FWIW, I recommend belaying a pitch of climbing up to the base of this route. The approach bit is slippery and exposed. A fall here would suck.

Comments: Schneid, a MP.com user suggested a reorganization. These various crags were scattered and less organized. So, it seemed to make sense to do as this user suggested. Certainly there are plenty of ways to organize crags. This one just seemed an improvement compared to what we had previously.

Comments: From the news: they are going to dredge Boulder Creek from Boulder Falls all the way downstream. It will close the creek to playing/being in the water with a reported $1000 fine for violators.

Comments: We swapped out the sun-bleached white (formerly chartreuse) sling with a bit of cord through bolt smashlinks and a quicklink. The rope pulls easily now. You can also now clip a biner into both SMC hangers.

Comments: There is a nice variation that starts in the chimney of Natural Fact, moves into the dihedral of the pillar to its left, and continues on the face bit of This Ain't Naturita, Pilgrim. Small cams, perhaps even double yellow Aliens/TCUs and a longer sling are useful.
