Comments: I thought this was a challenging, thought-provoking climb that was very sustained. I'd give this route 3 stars if it wasn't for some friable rock throughout the route.

Comments: This route is sooo good. Every pitch is very unique and fun. 5 out of 4 stars for sure!

A tip if your partner is a little squimish about following the opening traverse moves on p4.
Once you finish leading the pitch: Pull up all the rope and put your partner on belay like normal. Untie and lower down your end of the rope. Your partner can then tie in on a bite with a locker (that way they can ditch that rope after the traverse) and be on top rope for the first traverse, just like climbin' on ... more >>

Comments: This picture clearly illustrates where not to camp. Please do not camp here. There is plenty of great, free camping all along the road on National Forest land. There's a sign at the parking area saying "NO CAMPING/ FIRES". Landowners don't want you camping at their gate, and this is a Wildlife Area where it is clearly stated, no camping.
Please Don't Do This.

Comments: A few do, Kevin.
  • Highlander gets sun all day - but can be windy.
  • Dog House gets sun from say 10 am til 3 pm?
  • Primo Wall/ Crystal Tower get sun from 10:30-2ish.
  • The "Binge side" of Creekside gets sun around the same as primo (but can be harder to get to if there is not an ice bridge).
  • Convenience Cliff gets sun most of the day... I think.
  • Also Sports Wall gets sun most of the day, say 11 am til dusk.
  • If you're looking for a hard project, Stuffed Wolf (13b) at the Higher Profile Wall ge...

If you're a fan of technical climbing, this route is not to be missed!

Comments: I wouldn't say any moves are hard on this, but being comfortable with tenous moves way off the deck certainly helps.

Comments: To call the crux slabby would be an understatement. Great route.
If you're not up to leading this, it is very easy to swing over from the anchors of No Pressure to clip a directional for a top rope.

Comments: If you look closely, you can see 2 chopped bolts just left of the upper part of the chimney.... The whole building an anchor, then walking over to rap doesn't bother me at all, but that stupid Star Drive does.

Comments: Surprised no one else was as spooked about the 2 giant, detatched blocks under the roof as I was. The first one you can barely avoid and is a large chockstone that moves, the second is a very, very large block that you have to clip the next bolt from. It's not loose, but certainly sounds like death. Spooky!

Hard to give this route any stars with a canyon full of excellent routes that don't sound like death.
