Comments: We linked pitches like the OP did. P4(second half of p2 for us) had loads of rope drag even with many extendable draws and not clipping the mid anchor or 7 other lead bolts. All the other pitches had no noticeable rope drag.
The approach was easy to follow for us and took us exactly one hour. The descent was also easy to follow but took us about two hours of hiking. Climb took us 2hrs, 52min.

Comments: Some of the tufas are currently wet
Please use caution climbing on the tufas for at least the next few weeks, maybe longer. Some of the routes with tufas were wet this past weekend (1-31-15) from last Friday's storm. Tufa Yard Dash and Tufa One were both wet at the top of each route. Tufas break much easier when wet. Please do not alter routes for everyone else. In the past I have seen the tufas stay wet anywhere from a few weeks to a few months and the interior stays wet much longer t... more >>

Comments: Fellas, it's next year now. :)

I'm excited for some thick and large elk steaks and the road improvements!

Comments: Are there names for the boulder problems on the low angle wall directly across from Iron Monkey and to the right of the Donkey Punch wall? I found the right line on this wall to be pretty fun.

Comments: As of 7-26-14, FR 142E and the section of the canyon where the climbing is located is closed due to a MANAGED WILDFIRE that started on 7-8-14 via lightning.

Comments: I took the name of this crag off the photo as I was informed that hunters found this and similar photos on this website from a google search and were illegally trying to hunt these beauties. I'll send you a message letting you know what climbing area this is.

Comments: My first thought is that this is a new route and should have a name. (like Crossbones.)

Then I thought about it more and this route does just seem like a harder start for Coup de'tat.

Comments: The tufa system between Tufa Yard Dash and Tufa One was wet this past weekend. (March 9 & 10, 2013) It would be best if people stay off these two climbs until the tufa's have dried internally, which is a while after they dry externally.
The large tufa rings when you bump it and sounds fragile even when it is dry.

Comments: That's cool Dave. We did a day hike out here last year to check it out also. Definitely nicer to stay the night and have a couple days here.

Comments: I give this a "PG13/R" rating just for the very top. Though the difficulty backs off after you pull the last roof, if you blow it in the last couple moves to the anchor, the fall will be long and it looks like a hard hit into the wall! Someone left a nice fat chalk mark right where another bolt should be added.
Crux is at the bottom.

Comments: A 60 meter rope might get you down, we used most of our 70 meter rope. If not, 60m will get you to a ledge about 25 feet off the ground where you can untie and traverse to a down climb.
