Comments: The route to the right of P.O.P. (Power of Perfection) is called Mean People Suck. Skin Diver is the overhang with cracks to the right of Mean People Suck and does not have bolts. It can be top roped and is also a scary trad. lead. Watch for Bee's, hence the name Skin Diver, they may have moved?
Comments: Also watch for vehicle break-in's. It hasn't happened for several years, but don't leave climbing gear or anything valuable in your vehicle. Always park where you can keep an eye on it. If you ever see something going down. Get the license plates and contact 911.
Comments: The guidebook is out and can be found on Amazon - Google and here STATIC the Endless Knot www.vcrux.com The color guide costs more but is way worth it. I'm currently working on a Revised Edition that will be published this year. You can summit new problems and photos to email@example.com Thanks

Comments: Thanks again Paul for the contact. I spoke with Bob many times since. I lost contact because my PC died, however I was able to get some really cool photos from him, John Sherman and detailed articles. The guide has a complete section on the History of CoR.
Comments: Every crag lies in the shadow of Hueco Tanks. Hueco is a diamond and Pena Blanca is a jewel that surrounds it. If there was no Hueco. Pena Blanca would be in the limelight as a local crag. This is the second best place to boulder in this area and the 1st and only place to enjoy pure grain free - outback & wild bouldering like it should be. No gates, times, Rangers or hype. Just you and the mountain.
Comments: New high quality bp's have been established on the north face called The Spore V9+ (roof) and Washburn Effect V7 - V8 var. (hand rail traverse into The Spore) The chossy southeast face etc. should be ignored.
