Comments: This is such an intimidating problem. When looking at it from the ground it looks like it's a V7 or 8, but apparently its a lot harder and definitely psychological.

Comments: Seems like the government is trying to overcompensate for its lack of success in The Gulf. It's kind of like a guy with a small dick buying a shiny, fast car to get chicks. Just playing...maybe it's good.

Comments: I disagree. I thought the rock was a little chossy in some places, but found this climb not lacking in cool moves and a distinct crux before the horizontal slash.

Comments: That looks like the grotto, except 100 times better. Is that basalt? Based off of what I've climbed in my backyard.

Comments: There is a "newer" route on the far right of the wall. It starts climbing a flake then pulling onto a chossy slab. Does anyone know what this goes at and what it is called?

Comments: Awesome moves on this route. It would be classic if it was longer and the start wasn't so exclusive, but the movements are really cool right off the ground. Like it's sister route to the right, the start is very height dependent, but I'm sure there are a million different ways to wiggle through it. Plan on leading this route next visit.

Comments: Agreed. It's all in the first couple moves. I'm tall and found it not so bad, but I still stick clipped the first bolt and pre-hung the second. If you can make the initial moves off the ground, the rest is cake. This would be quite hard for someone shorter than 5'9'' or 5'10''.

Comments: Agreed. Nuts and small cams will do just fine. Crack starts to peter out towards the top.

Comments: A little harder than it looks on the ground. Fun climb on solid rock. Didn't see any Bat guano.

Comments: Hard to start if you are shorter. When I got to the scary mantle I realized why the climb was dubbed Out on a Limb. Not much fun falling from the mantle above your bolt.

Comments: To Anonymous- Yes, that is called black plague and goes at V6. The Ramp is V4 and very over-rated in my opinion.

Comments: It helped me a lot to just skip the bubble hold and go straight for the in-cut flake. Really isn't insanely highball compared to say...bishop.

Comments: Route has a potential of ground fall or sprained ankle. It is very short three bolt slab. There should be one more bolt protecting the mantle b/c the rock is very polished at that spot. Putting one more bolt at that point is convenient to clip, safer and doesn't take away from the aesthetics of the route.
