Comments: Fun bouldery rock climbing on bullet stone. Really fun, only overshadowed by its great neighbors.

Comments: Got off route and went up and right when we should have gone left on the second pitch. Wound up doing the sermon, which was pretty strung out to the Oasis, but really good too.

Comments: Did this with my buddy Jordan the other week. Had a blast. This was how we pitched it out:

From Broadway, Jordan climbed to the base of the 5.9 finger cracks.

I led the 5.7 traverse into the 5.8 squeeze and continued up to the base of the 5.8 corners. Some simul-climbing was involved.

I led the 5.8 corner to the base of the crux pitch (YWBL), some simul-climbing was involved there too, no big deal.

Jordan led the crux pitch to the base of Table Ledge extended

I led the traverse over to Tabl... more >>

Comments: Climbed this today. There's 10 or 12 bolts and chains. There are new blue boundary signs up that are before you get to blood and bolts, this is right directly in line with those signs. Fun route, good movement, and well bolted.

Comments: Gear spoiler for the top, plug a green alien size piece at the very bottom of the dihedral before you run to the chains.

Comments: Did the direct start to this today. If you add in the fear factor I think it bumps up a few letter grades. Stellar route though, no two ways around that. Had an interesting time working out the moves from the second bolt up to the finger crack. Hard tenuous, and scary. Amazing route.
