Comments: Morrison V1 for sure. Don't overextend your arm trying to stick it.

Comments: Good route. Both my partner and I agreed that the crack seems glossed over and it's not as gritty as it once was, but there is plenty of other holds. Jug haul to the top. Also, today I almost stepped on a rattlesnake, so be aware while you are out there.

Comments: Hand crack... yeah about that. Fist to offwidth size. Maybe a V1 offwidth, but I'm terrible anytime on crack, so can't really say grade wise.

Comments: Be delicate when climbing in this area. I found two large blocks that moved when pulled hard on. Neither moved significantly, but better to be safe than sorry. Also just be aware, and if you don't regularly, wear a helmet here all the time if you can, as there are loose rocks all over the trail, and a couple were knocked on to me today.

Comments: Climbed this today. The bolts at the top move a little. I couldn't crank it down with the Metolius torque nut tool, so real tools will be needed to tighten the bolts. Great route though. Bring stoppers.

Comments: good route. P2 was the best by far. I went right on P3, which could have been harder. definitely felt harder than 5.7 to me to start, and had to run it out a little more than I was comfy with. 20-30 foot run out. after 30 feet it felt like 5.7. I would have wanted more big gear. I placed my Trango #9 on every pitch. Its between a 3 and 4 BD Camalot. I would have liked to have another big piece.

Comments: Jordan, this picture was at Tree Slab. Still a V3 dyno, I think, but wrong side of Morrison.

Comments: Climbed this last week. Good, decent climb. Just be aware of loose rock. Also had a considerable amount of rope drag climbing the second pitch. I placed a piece down low and even though I put a runner on it, it would have been better if I had run it out about 15 feet from the start to place my first piece. Just remember that if you do the climb.

Comments: Jeremy: where did you find bolts? My partner and I could not find any... except some bolts to another climb next to it, which at the time looked unsafe.

Comments: Hey, does anyone know if the flaring crack to the left of this route is an established line? I did the crack on trad lead last summer, and can't find anything about it.

Comments: So, this route was not as fun as I expected. The top has two false summits, and we couldn't find the bolts to rap off of. Although, if you just go to the left and up a little bit from where you top out, you can see a large tree, and behind that is a place where you can shimmy along the wall (it's safe) and from there you can get to the boulderfield thing that leads up to the crags. Also, we never found any trail, so we just cut through the woods and it worked. Finally, I would say there is a fai... more >>
