Comments: Not wanting to jam up the especially quality routes, but from those who are experienced in the area, what are your favorite routes? For me, Retards Recess (or Bushman/Doctor), Torpedo, Raindance, TB Bush, Aqualung, Sign Language, Egg Timer, Queenfolia (pre chalked to shit), and I always thought Trapeze was a fun bit of going for it. Perfect Beast has a serious of awesome moves. The start of Ship of Fools, and the roof on Jolly Roger, Yardarm and Crows Nest, Ivory Snow snow on Pillow Wall- sho... more >>

Comments: Rather than running a rap-line around one of the trees at the top of this cliff, there's a perfect setup for getting down from the top of Davidson'd Dihedral on gear. It's a cautious scramble down to the right of the top of the route, and an exposed step across left to get to a ledge leading to the top of the route, but a 0.75 camelot, black metolious, and a #1 Camelot make for a bomber anchor. The rope pulls super clean, you leave no trace on the rim, easy to pull and fleck your rope at... more >>

Comments: What's the story with the two chopped bolts at the top of this climb? I'm glad they're gone, but if there was ever a climb that could use a couple of bolts to lower from, this is it. I didn't have the tools to file down the sleeve extensions that are still sticking out of the rock... but it seems that if you're going to have steel sticking out of the rock, might as well have it be something useful, rather than just an eyesore in such a beautiful place.

Comments: I spent last week climbing at the Needles, and when I stopped at the Ponderosa Lodge for a few beers and asked to see the guidebook they used to have, they told me it was stolen a few years ago. I decided to leave my old copy there for all climbers to use, so they now have this hard to find book if you're needing some info on the area. Hopefully it stays put for many years to come.

Comments: This is such a cool place to go climbing. Canyonphobia atomized here. Who added the bolted belay on the south rim, with a couple of now rusted looking lead bolt into that thin archning crack? Looks fun.

Comments: I wouldn't suggest this route to someone who is breaking into 5.7 on gear, unless you're solid on sport .9 and familiar with climbing on rhyolyte. Most of the good placements are fidgeting in small wires, especially offsets (.2-.4"), into the bottom of old pin scars. Crux for me was getting a shoulder into the offwidth on pitch 2. Felt like 5.8.

Two bolts with rap links atop 1st pitch, and a big boulder slung with webbing (and a rap ring) atop pitch two. Excellent rock, and fun climbing.
