Comments: start is much harder than 5.8 IMO, but just for a few moves, so don't let it scare you off the climb. 1 star for climbing + 1 star for summit.

Comments: Greg - A civic won't make it all the way to the best parking spot, but you'll be able to get close, I'd guess plan on adding 20-30 minutes to the approach.

Comments: I loved this pitch! My partner and I both found this route to be a bit easier than man on the moon, but maybe we were just fresher on this one. Both felt in the range of 10b/c to me.

Comments: Nice little bonus scramble. I did some humping on this route for sure, but it was more like block humping than ridge humping. Some really awkward climbing on this. Theres no reason to do this in two pitches, one works fine.

Also did a super fun short .10+(??) route with 7 bolts on the spire directly facing this route. Anybody know what it is?

Comments: Can be made pg with some finger sized cams. Using just the bolts works fine if solid at the grade. Cruxes are tricky but well protected.

Comments: Many bats flew out of the crack as I was climbing which definitely made it a little scarier. I thought it was quite fun leading it in one pitch. Drag was manageable, but I backcleaned, skipped some bolts and used some long slings. 1st pitch solid 5.8 crux, 2nd pitch 5.7

Comments: quite a few hangerless bolts, rack up with some small nuts on quickdraws for slining bolts. The one piece i actually placed was a .75. YMMV.

Comments: Just an FYI - the Berkeley Camp staff request that climbers check in at the office while camp is in session, and there are signs up stating this. They've always been super friendly to me, and the reason is that they are in charge of a bunch of kids, and don't really want strangers just walking through camp without checking in. Bottom line is: be friendly to the staff there so climbers remain on good terms with the camp.

Comments: Agreed about the long draw Ryan, specifically I thought it most useful on the last bolt on the slab before the roof.

Comments: Jared - there is a 5.10 to the right of the Diamond. Its the next bolt line over. I thought it felt a tad easier than the Diamond.

The Diamond has 11 bolts, and is actually the 2nd route moving right from the diagonal ramp that splits Mayhem.

Comments: I did not find any fixed cams or nuts on this climb today. It was a nice cool, cloudy and breezy August day, with not a single other party on the route.

Comments: Sean, I'm guessing the climb you are referring to is DWI (11b). It skirts the roof to the left of Car Jacker

Comments: I found this climb to be really awkward and mossy, yet somehow I still managed to have a lot of fun. Okay but not great looking webbing with biners at top. I backed it up with 1-3 inch cams. I found a #4 to be useful on this climb.

Comments: Although the crack is full of plants, the rock quality on this climb is excellent, and the pro is great. Mostly sustained 5.7 climbing. I also highly recommend linking with the 2nd pitch of drive-by. which starts by following a crack and ends with a 5.9 slab protected by 3 bolts.

Comments: Really really fun 5.8! Anytime you think it might get tough a great hold (hand or foot) appears. There is quite a bit of lose rock, so just be aware
