Comments: Love this route but if you miss the second bolt you will deck. Just something to remember. Still love it though.

Comments: Last bolt to chains is loose. It has a wiggle of about 1/4 inch. watch your send due to the fact that this bolt seemed like the crux move. Otherwise great climb with varied movement.

Comments: both anchor bolts are loose to the point this climb is NOT safe to rappel or lower off. I topped out and traversed to skid mark to lower. Great climb but needs new anchors.

Comments: no rattlesnake. Can rap down if you do some 5th class moves up and around to the right after you hit the ledge or you can take the climb straight up the varnish face after you hit the ledge. This will gain you the rap anchors from the 5.9 to the right.

Comments: Has anchors at the top with multiple old slings for rapping off of. No doubt about it this is a classic climb. My rope got stuck at the first roof like everyone else. Good luck with that. Easier for the upper body strong.

Comments: anchors are up and right 20 feet after you come out of the knee bar part.

Comments: This and the rest of the climbs at this wall are suspect and chossy for the most part. Not my favorite crag. Needs a ton more traffic for cleaning up.

Comments: start is the crux and is not great due to fact that you could deck getting to the second bolt and the hold that get you there are a bit chossy. Thought this was the least impressive route at the crag.

Comments: All holds were solid today when I climbed it. Tricky start leads to great climbing. I thought this was the second best route at the crag.

Comments: 10+ for sure. some good feet and balance movements will get you through the crux down low to 3rd bolt

Comments: Added this route cause i have been there a few times and got sick of no beta on it. If you put this up just let me know the name and FA so i can put that on here. Cheers.

Comments: classic steep route. last two hold felt a little chossy. great if you like steep and short routes with a jug haul.

Comments: Great area with solid routes for a new leader at 5.8+ to 5.9. The 9's can be fairly sustained and no one is ever here. Cheers. Have fun

Comments: great steep route at first. Wish someone would bolt it. Gear placements for trad look thin.

Comments: Epic route for sure. Has everything from pumpy jugs to balanced out crimp sections. Love this one. For sure a route you should do if in the area.

Comments: Pumpy steep route for sure. Unique start on 5.9 crack first 15 feet. One or two BD's will protect well here. Route is still fresh and lots shedding off. PG-13 rating cause the first bolt is 20 feet up. Once it cleans up this will deserve three stars for sure.

Comments: great route. Still needs a lot of clean up. Wear a helmet if belaying. Has everything from 5.8 crack (trad) to jug pocket to crimps.

Comments: Doubles .2-.5 good idea to last through crux. Rap rings up high. Didn't see them first climb up. I used one .75. thats all you need to lead this (double .2-.5 and on .75). This was my second trad lead and was epic. Highly rec this to any new trad leaders.

Comments: Got my red point on this after the 2nd attempt. If you are solid at this grade have no worries but if you are pushing the grade worry about the 3rd bolt (crux) and last (crazy unsafe as in i was pushing it back in and it would slide out a 1/2 inch). This climb is epic but needs now bolts. I would help out as mentioned in recent post to replace them.

Comments: Agree with the above comment. Very stout for the rating. Thought it was crap until you hit the second bolt due to the chossy start in the first big crack you use to pull up on.

Comments: Fun climbing throughout. A pumpy route with a good rest after the second and fourth bolt. If you miss clipping the third bolt there is ground fall potential. The crux to me was between the third and fourth bolt. Easy climbing after pulling the mantle (5.8ish) with run outs to fourth bolt then anchors. Well worth it if your here, and way better than the 10d close by.
