Comments: Also possible to downclimb (or up) from just off the summit to the south via a sloping ramp (5.3) with a horizontal break to jam in. Just follow the weakness towards the west. This is the shortest way to the ground, maybe only 10 meters.

Comments: This route is actually named Cockopotamus after Hank Caylor's enormous rig. We had to sanitize the name to get it past the city. Just thought you all might like to know. And yes, this route is terrible, 0 stars at best, but it's the only worthwhile warm-up on the wall.

Comments: I am never going to feel okay about that first bolt in an ancient boulder problem done way, way back in the day (Dinosaur Mtn was Holloway's favorite bouldering area). What a gorgeous problem too and then that putrid stick-clip bolt for the weak. The whole idea is weak. I've bolted some stupid stuff, and I am even glad some of it got chopped and is now left for TRing, but this one.... Oh well, no more clinging to old school ways. That's all dead now, and let's face it, they were awfully confused... more >>

Comments: With fresh fingers, the second clip is fine off a crimp. To improve the value of this tiny "pitch", do the V1 boulder problem up to it. With or without the V1, I call it 12a.

Comments: FIRST BOLT ADDED:
There is now a new first bolt on Street Hassle. I have wanted to add it for years. After jumping through all the city's hoops, it is finally in.

Comments: This route may be cursed. Erickson biffed and did the Joe Simpson death crawl down to the Royal Arch trail. When I was pulling the lip my rope became hopelessly wedged and I had to untie mid-move and solo the easy finish. The only reason to even get on this one is because it was the scene of Jim's torturous epic. To be honest I felt kinda stupid roping up for this silly little thing. If one considers it may also be cursed, well...

Comments: This is the full wilderness experience; loose rock, lichen, and isolation. A beautiful long pitch. Classic Briggs. I loved this thing. Give it any grade you want. Who cares?

Comments: Who is this Kaelen chick and what's her problem? Isn't an "eight move boulder problem" nice and long as boulder problems go? and isn't a bunch of hard .11 what one would expect on easier ground on a hard route? What a knit-picky b#%@h!

Comments: One hikes forever up the mountain, finally sees the super proud crack of D&T blasting to the top of the formation, and then notices this horrid, little, crimpy pimpy pile to the left and feels insulted it even exists, esp. alongside a timeless classic. I have put up a lot of bad routes even worse than this one. It is true I hate slabs and face, since it is all sissy climbing no matter how X rated it gets, but this route I found more annoying than usual. The climbing has no flow and the thought o... more >>

Comments: Sorry. The spice is gone. There is a bolt added to guide one to the best climbing and reduce the big end whipper. More in keeping with the rest of the routes on that wall. Of course, if you like it spicy, don't clip it or better yet solo it.
