Comments: Be careful on the approach trail as you head up the gully past Rincon. At the top of the gully, just below the west side of Potato Chip, there has been some recent, major-sized rockfall. Now there is a huge boulder about the size of a VW Bug ready to fall of the top of the cliff. On top of that boulder are tons of other smaller boulders. I'd be shocked if this massive rock fall doesn't happen some time in the next year. When it does, anyone walking up that gully will be in danger. If you must do... more >>

Comments: Not sure were this is, but this is definitly not the approach I took. Not sure how I got to P1, but I know there is a approach that is not as steep, exposed and full of vegetation.

Comments: Open to the public, yes. Open to bouldering, no way in hell this time of year. The boulders will have snow around them till late June at best.

I don't understand why this site says it has access issues. Fall River Reservoir is a very popular fishing, camping, hunting, hiking area, etc. People go up that road on foot, skis, 4-wheelers, snowmobiles, cars, bikes, you name it. Even if a forest service road crosses private land (as it often does), the road has an easement over the land. Land o... more >>

Comments: You can rap off the main anchor from the top straight down towards the west. One 60m rope easily gets you down to a walk off. Then 5 min walk back to the start of the climb.

Comments: The road to Fall River Road Reservoir is not private. It is an old Forest Service road. The private land borders the road and is not near the boulders. If someone asks you to stop and turn around, tell them to call the Forest Service and complain.

Comments: Any guide book that has a picture of someone climbing in bright green spandex and pink draws is going to be great! Nice job.

Comments: An old style #5 Camalot works great, and a C4 #5 works ok.

Comments: This wall faces mostly west/southwest. However, there are about 4 routes that are bit more south facing. In my opinion I think this wall has some of the best views in the creek. You have great views of the six shooters, canyon lands and the submarine.

Comments: If you only want to do the 1st pitch (I don't think your missing much by skipping the 2nd pitch), you can traverse right at the top and rap off the anchors for Muscular Dystrophy (70' to the ground).

Comments: As AC mentioned about 100' uphill from the start of Wunsch's Simulator is an overhanging finger crack. Does anyone know anything about that route? It looks super hard, maybe 5.12+. This route does have an anchor on top that you can rap off with 2 100' raps.

Comments: The Trout guide book says this route would be improved with anchors at the top and I have to agree.

About 100' uphill from the start of Wunsch's Simulator is an overhanging finger crack. Does anyone know anything about that route? It looks super hard, maybe 5.12+. This route does have an anchor on top that you can rap off with 2 80' raps.

Comments: Although the crack is small I still imagine that using cupped hands will help someone tick that crack of their list.

Comments: Vertigo Rap beta:

Once on the upper ramp walk to Chockstone Chimney route. Walk about 15 higher and begin looking over the edge for a small tree about 20 below the rim. This sits between a small saddle of the top of the upper ramp and a large rock out cropping. Down climb to the tree. Looking at the wall look right about 15 for the painted bolts and chain. 2 single rope raps gets you to the Yellow Spur ledge.

Comments: To do it in one long pitch you need about 7 draws, 12 runners and 2 double runners. If not, welcome to rope drag Meca.

To minimize ground fall potential, near the bottom I began in a good crack for about 25' placed a #0.5 Camalot, made the easy, but tricky traverse right to the other crack, placed another small cam then traversed back left to clean the first cam. This eliminated any ground fall potential and by back cleaning minimized rope drag.

Comments: Great route! We found a stuck #4 camalot in the upper section of the OW. We tried to get it out, but to no avail. If it is still there then that is one less #4 you have to carry up there. I would also recommend 3-4 #3.5 camalots or #4 friends.

We lengthened the rap so the links are over the lip of the summit. Without doing this pulling the ropes was a huge chore from the amount of friction.

Comments: Descent info:

With 2 60 meter ropes do one rap from the summit (you can do this part with one rope) to the top of pitch 2. Then one 180 rap to the ground.
With one 60meter rope do one rap from the summit to the top of pitch 2. Another rap to the top of Easton's Corner(this is the5.11 left facing corner to the right of the original start). These rap anchors are visible from the ground. Then one 100 rap to the bottom.

Comments: Kevin, we looked all over the place for the two nut rap off the top and couldn't find it. Thus, we hiked off. Can you give more details as to where that rap is? As for the Fixe chain anchor we didn't see it on the ledge on top of P3. It must have been further to the right (east).
