Comments: The Hardrock 100 course heads up above this lake.

Comments: I banged my head against the division wall like 12 times in stubborn blindness trying to use the ticked crappy crimp/pinch out left to reach the jug over the roof to finish, whipping constantly at the same move. Luckily I discovered on my 13th go that the small slender female fingers of my left hand could fit in the top slider pocket normally used as a right hand cross through, a simple bump making Brad Heller's accurately described v6 problem into a casual v4.

Discovering this beta was like ... more >>

Comments: I decided to start sleeping on this climb as it was softer than my down comforter. No harder than License to Thrill though the top mantel roof pull might spit you off should your flexibility be that of a lead pipe.

Comments: No moaning on this one. Some grunting maybe, but no moaning. Very quality climbing. Every sport climb should have a mantle to finish it off!

Comments: Bolts are weird but I didn't really think they were bad. Maybe I'm used to clipping star drives in the desert. I found the crux to be the last bolt. Bad ledge fall potential if you blow it, and its not easy. I happily yarded here as my ankles are worth far more than a redpoint.

We found a nice trail that leads from the top of the ridge directly to the top of the gully without any cross country. Take a left at a big boulder on a faint path. The entrance to the gully is 1 min from there.

Comments: Holy crap this is stout! Similar to "Big in Japan" in desperation factor. Hard right off the deck through bolts 1-3. Clipping bolt 2 seemed near impossible. We were unable to figure out how to get out of the finger stack. Reminded me of "Aint no Party" at Dogwood. Last half of the climb is really fun BCC flat jugs on a steep wall. Didn't do the extension. Recommend doing "the Wraith" first and clipping through bolt 3 on the way down to work the crux out on TR. Need to go boulder some more before... more >>

Comments: It may have cleaned up a lot because it was pretty solid rock as of June 2014. Great climbing. Hard from bolt 2-3 with some big cobble slapping. Great rest around the corner midway up to get it all back. Felt more than a letter grade harder than Tomaco.

Comments: Fun! Jug Haul with a bit of crux at the end. Pretty soft compared to the stuff at Minimum/windshield.

Comments: 15 feet of initial great climbing. Mediocre climbing on flexies for another 40' to rap bolts.

Comments: Slickery in 85 degree temps. Expect more slabbage and slapping than crack at the crux

Comments: More fun that home teaching. No offense to Wheeler, but "smack my bishop" is a far superior name. Good gear the whole way. You'll likely lose some thigh skin on this one when you backwards heelhook slide across.

Comments: Nice addition to the crag. Chimney the wide flaring start with hands in the back, then up some juggy steep stuff that feels like it will break, finishing with a long reach off a slopey lieback to a finger lock with small cams for pro. Fun!

Comments: Ruckman's found a gem with this one. Steep roundy blocks to a huge spike jug start you off, followed by weird liebacking while throwing your leg around an arete of sorts. The tenuous slab move above requires faith the crystal nubbin will hold your left foot, then a strenous undercling clip over a roof leads to the devious finish where a hidden bomber lieback crack out left is the ticket to reaching the clipping jug. Best sport climb in the canyon(yes, even better than "all chalk")

Comments: Short but full value! Pretty sure DTM either is crushing .13's or didn't do this climb, cause it ain't 12-. Juggy .11 climbing leads to a V5 dyno off a sidepull crimp to a good edge over the roof. Flat slappers with no feet will get you to the top. Preplaced long draw on last bolt aids clipping it. Pretty fun route. Currently good fixed draw on crux bolt.

Comments: Few notes:
Pitch 1-Nuts are key for upper corner. #5 was nice for short chimney section. Buttonhead stud can be slung with stopper for pro exiting chimney. 2 bolt belay on fat ledge
pitch 2-5.10 fingers variation is great, do it. short cruxy move to get into the crack. 2 sets of bolts on this fat ledge.
pitch 3-i used 2 #4's and 1 #5 and I wouldn't have wanted any less. The entire pitch is #3-#4 camalot size. Stopped at the midway sitdown stance and built belay wit... more >>

Comments: Another clue to describe the location of the Chocolate Wall is that it is directly across from Private Pizza Wall.

Comments: Didn't move on me at all. Many a rock has been placed under the pillar to increase stability. Exciting climbing on the first part leads to easy liebacking. Too bad that upper crack wasn't another 100 ft.

Comments: Pitch 1 - fun, juggy climbing (like Johnny Cat) to bomber hand crack.
Pitch 2 - dump all your 0.75s into the bottom section. You won't need them after the 2 bolts. Chimneying is the ticket up below the block. Why you would stop at the 2 pins in an awful, hanging belay instead of going another 15 feet to a good stance is beyond me. The crux is pulling the bulge past the 2 pin anchor, then it's hands to the anchor.
Pitch 3 - reds, man. All reds. Bring at least 5. Save 2 for the final 10 feet past... more >>

Comments: The directions on this page and on the individual route pages to approach the tower via rappelling are crap. The Visitor Center is NOWHERE NEAR the tower. Also, merely stating, "head to the campground rim and rap" is not very accurate either. Here is the correct info:

Head to Book Cliffs Viewpoint, which is accessed via the same road as the campground but not in the campground. From the viewpoint building, follow a NPS trail down and then hike out as close to the tower as you can, 1 minute from... more >>
