Comments: It's probably worth mentioning that a ranger talked to one of our Texas Canyon group and asked her to spread the word among others to display the Adventure Pass. The ranger then talked about the need for facilities for climbers there, such as toilets and picnic tables. (Just what we need--picnic tables.) I guess that's sort of like the highway patrol stopping you for going 90 miles an hour and asking you to spread the word among your friends to slow down a bit, it makes the road safer.

Comments: "National Forest Fee Area" is not the same as "Parked Vehicles Must Display an Adventure Pass".

Comments: i watch a fella from outa state take a fall on the lower section. they had picked the route because, at 5.4, it was theoretically the easiest on the crag.

if you get bored with the direct finish, move out and right onto the shelf--an airy traverse, followed by delicate face moves to the final ledge. extra credit if you don't bellyflop the mantle.
