Comments: There's a nice description on summitpost.org

I don't recommend it in the rain - everything gets very slippery.

Comments: We found it easier to get to the "belay bolt" by just walking on the ground until we were below it. Then follow easy rock up to it. It's really not too far and seemed easier and more secure than traversing in from the left.

The route is really good. It begins with some thin (no hands) moves and changes to decent hand holds for the second half.

Comments: Visited Water Dome for the first time today. The cleanest approach is to Spray Wall and onward as described above. Unfortunately, there are plenty of sticker bushes to slow you down. Around the corner from Spray Wall, you have to do some rock-hopping over the water and go up a low-angle ramp. Sandals would make this easier as the water was just about shoe depth. At the top of the ramp is a nice area with berries ready to eat.

Water Dome is pretty big and has 4 or 5 routes.

Comments: It's 5.7 now in the description. I thought it looked easier than 5.9.

Comments: I added "Unknown 4-bolt climb" with some pics. There were some climbers on it, so I didn't get a chance to go up. They didn't stop at the webbing, but went all the way to the landing way up there. Please comment on the description or the grade.

Comments: While walking around the south-end topropes (en route to the Scarecrow area) I saw a route that I was wondering if anyone had info on. It is pretty much on the SW corner of the rock, though more W than S. It is definitely before (i.e. south of) the other west-side climbs. It has 4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. The anchor has blue webbing and maybe rap rings. It doesn't look super hard and isn't super tall. Can anyone ID this climb and its rating? The books I have don't mention it. T... more >>

Comments: Climbed today and enjoyed it. There are 5 new looking bolts, all in decent spots. Thanks to the re-bolting team! The fourth one (I think) moves a bit. I was happy for the new first bolt and felt secure (i.e. well protected) up the ramp. After bolt 4, you begin the move around the finger. I dropped in a nut for feel-good pro to get to the last bolt. Then the fun stuff begins. It looked easier since I figured on a decent jam in the crack, but I only found one spot that was narrow enough. ... more >>

Comments: Climbed Big Sky Saturday - very good climb on solid rock. The bolts are solid, although some hangers move a little. The crux is definately the move from the last bolt to the anchors. The holds are there to do it, you just need to find them. The anchor is 2 bolts with a glued piton in the middle. The is an alternate start using the right ramp. From the ground it leads right to the second bolt.

While between climbs we were serenaded with a marching band at the Visitors Center. Their soun... more >>

Comments: One last thing: between this route and the adjacent 5.9 to the left, just below the anchors, is a spare bolt. I don't know what it's for, unless you want to use it to climb from one climb to the other.

Comments: This is the third-from-the-right bolted route in the gully from Schooldaze up to Guides Route. It begins as far left from the first 2 (lowest) routes as you can go before you hit the rock gully. The first bolt is right above the initial jug. You can even stem the wall behind you at this point.

The route follows 5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lowering links. This is the second anchor station from the right (the first 2 routes share the first anchors). You could scramble between these two a... more >>

Comments: Tried the bolted portion of this route on Sat. The description is right: It is 5-bolts to a good 2-bolt anchor with lowering links. The anchor is about 50' off the deck. The route begins on top of the rock that forms the gully leading from the bolted routes below to the Guides Route to the left. The beginning is juggy and more vertical. It gets lower angle after the 3rd bolt and is changes to more face climbing. Off to the left the rock has a cool green lichen on it.

The crack above the ... more >>

Comments: Checked out the new bolted area on Turret Dome on Sat. We saw the 5 bolted routes. This "Unknown 5.8" is the second from the right. To the right is Sloppy Shoes (5.10) which shares anchors with this one. Heading left is the 5.9. These three are all in one area. The next two are up a steep gully, which ends at Guide's Route.

The description above is correct - 5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor with lower/rappel-friendly oval links. Good climbing and good bolts.Bring the #2 Camalot. Total h... more >>

Comments: After all the good press, I finally tried this route. I wasn't super impressed, thus the single star.

P1: Kind of a vague beginning - lots of huge holds. Just go from ledge to ledge. The only difficulty is the mental one of your pro actually being helpful in case of a fall. There is a piton about 15 feet up to ease that a little. Rope drag can be an issue as you zig-zag up. I ended P1 at the large flake/roof about 15 feet too high.

P2: The climbing finally got fun as you move around the ... more >>

Comments: Good route up solid rock. Wasn't super hard, but definitely fun! There are lots of holds (on left wall or right face) and good stances to place pro. Bring 2 ropes to get down if you don't want to walk around.
