Comments: Never had a problem with a single 70m. When in doubt on the raps, go climbers left.

Comments: If you're bored with the start of TDD, you can add another 5.12 crux by starting up Reefer Madness. Traverse up and left at the 3rd bolt staying at the level of the jug before the crux of Reefer.
Dumb but fun.

Comments: Great route! 3 awesome, sustained pitches. The 3rd pitch has a wicked pump to it that made it feel just as hard as the 2nd "crux pitch".... Maybe I was just still pumped.

Comments: Awesome route!
Rack beta: single set from #0.3-5; three #6s; 2-3 #3 Bigbros; 1 #4 Bigbro.

Seems like a lot, but it was very nice to have all of the extra big stuff. Also the 2nd pitch offwidth is very tipped out 6s....

Comments: Definitely thought this was harder and more technical than Mud in Your Eye. Awesome line that will test your technique of the awkwardness. I thought the first slot was pretty heady, a fall would not be advised.
Great Route.

Comments: The new guide calls this 10a.... That's a mighty big sandbag, but then again I'm a beached whale when it comes to this wide stuff. If you're squeamish in offwidths, take one #1, two #5s and #6s, a single #3 Bigbro, and one or two #4 Bigbros. That'll sew it up well.

Oh, and 0.75-4 for an anchor.

Comments: Got on this thing a month or so ago. Cool route that is a lot harder than it appears from the ground. Nice job, fellas.

Comments: Bring a #5 to protect the first chimney. I was very happy to have it. After that, it's fingers forever!

As for the midway anchor, it was in great shape. Definitely agree that climbing the route in one pitch is the way to go, but that definitely takes a lot of gear.

Comments: Great climb, Kev! If you're a little squimish about the high first bolt (even if your not), a bomber nut can be placed before committing to the face.

Comments: I think the rating depends on the recent bird activity in the area. If it's poopy..., 12a or maybe harder (depends on your tolerance). If it's clean, 11+ seems totally fair. With that said, it might be best to climb this route in the early spring, since the pigeons are just coming back and it had the winter to get cleansed with snow.

Great route.

Comments: Wow, Buzz Kill!

I had no idea about that Andrew, but from everything I can find you're right.... Sucks, there is no signs at the trail head stating otherwise, but it looks as if DMP's don't allow climbing in any parks... Granted bouldering is not really climbing right ;)

I'm deleting all of the pics and route descriptions. Sorry for the tease, all!

Comments: Thanks for taking the initiative, Keith! Most people just complain about the biners and expect someone else to replace them. Thanks for just replacing 'em.
Cheers
