Comments: The one on the left is better. There are a few 'dog' routes at the corridor, this is for sure in the top 5 for that category.

Comments: Fully agree. I much prefer the solitude scene to the average Saturday at the drilled out depravity scenes. Pinching a feature is way more interesting than tweaking a suspicious or worse pocket.

Comments: #@wilder: ^^^^^this is what gratitude looks like. Thanks M, hope you enjoy the route. It was utter depraved slavery getting it done, fortunately I conned my buddies into doing 99%+ of the hard work and mainly just worked on my tan and updated my Quitter account. I'm so bronze and lackadaisical after the Lips got a hold of me.

Comments: A really fine route. Been a long time since I've been on it, but I would say it's easily four stars or better.

Comments: Pretty cool to see these routes getting some action. 10 out of ten Vegas sport climbers won't make the hike out there to this beautiful spot, but I've enjoyed it every time. Lots of cool features. Really peaceful and worthwhile.

Did I mention that the hike's an hour? Yep, you'll have it to yourselves.

Comments: Pumpy and fun. The anchor on my new route to the left offers a nice alternative to the traverse to the anchor on the right and a more pleasant, direct finish.

Comments: There has been a furious swarm of emailing about the FA of this ground-up line lately. If the folks who ignored the red tag, which admittedly I should have taken down when I finished the route (who knew anyone was making the hike to Jane's Wall lately?) want to contact me and have a laugh about all the nonsense over a beer, here's your open invitation. I'll even buy a beer for Larry if he wants to show up like the wizard of oz popping out from behind the curtain of his laptop.

Comments: Thanks for the vote of confidence on this one, John. Thought I was treading the line of what was going to be acceptable for a trade route. The last bolt was a retrobolt that I put in after finishing the route with a 30 foot runout, thought the distance and the crunch factor justified making it a bit safer for the crowds. Overall I'm happy with the end result, got back to remove the spinning bolt so hardware should be all good now.

Comments: This has a depressing name considering it's a pretty line. We would have snapped this probable FRA up if we hadn't seen all the chalk on it. Was it fun? Sell me on this rig!

Comments: Sport wanks take note: it is possible to avoid the crack start to this one by beginning on the 10d and moving right to clip the first bolt on Gutta following an easy crack traverse; this keeps the pro all bolted but definitely changes the nature of the route. Call it Keep It Fly on your 8a.nu account and know that I am making fun of you. On a serious note, this traverse wasn't part of my line and thus didn't get cleaned, so probably has choss on it still. Heads up.

Comments: Vertical slab climbing. Feels like 11+ bouldering in the sun. People should be aware that literally ever piece up to the bolt where the crux begins is hollow and mainly eye candy. Even with screamers, I can't see any gear holding in that hollow rock even on a short fall. Probably better as a toprope, and now that holds are broken not the easy end of 5.11, either.
