Comments: Great route. The first few bolts had some really fun climbing. The crux below the bulge was really hard for me 6'1" and not bad for my partner (squatty and easier if you are shorter), and the bulge was really hard for my partner 5'5" and not bad for me (big reach and easier if you are taller). I agree with Jay, Man Chowder is a better route.

Comments: This route is awesome! Really varied and sustained with great movement. Had to fight for the onsight on this one. My partner and I agree, it is the best route we did in the 4 days of our vacation at The Head.

Comments: A bit of a handbag at 12a but really fun route and in a great position. A little unfortunate that someone had put tick marks on every possible feature on the route. Really takes away from people trying to onsight.

Comments: Darren, you are correct except that the next routes right of Tim's route are actually three routes that share the same start. If you go up the first two bolts and then go left, like Kevin said, it is a route called "The Bewildering Minute" that Neal Carroll put up a couple years ago. It is 12c. Really good. If you go right at the second bolt, you go into the two routes that split at the forth bolt, "Empty Your Pockets" on the left and "Bender" on the right. A lot of bolts in this area...

Comments: I think both pitches on this are great. I have done it a few times, and there is only one comment on it, so I thought I would chime in. Anyway, the first pitch is really fun "solid" rock. The second pitch is the "money" pitch and is a little spooky, but adds character to the pitch. Hard move off the belay, then big jugs out a series of roofs. Not many places you get that kind of exposure around here!!! FYI we did the first two pitches of Gothic Miller, lowered down to the top of the first ... more >>

Comments: I agree that the chains could be more inconspicuous, but the Metolius rap hangers are terrible. They kink up the rope and are a pain to thread.

Comments: Regardless of the grade, these routes are unique and awesome!! Go get on them. FYI I just did Huecos with a 90m rope and only had about 10 feet of rope left when I reached the ground. It would be a rope stretcher with a 80m rope.

Comments: I don't think the greasy comment is appropriate. If you don't like 'em short and stout maybe it's not for you, but IMO it's a really cool 35' boulder problem with bolts.
