Comments: Does top roping even count as a send?

Comments: I left a BD #3 blue cam at the 90 ft wall on 3/19. It was only like 4 ft off the ground as a dog anchor. Hopefully someone found it and can get it back to me. I checked a week after and it was gone, hopefully they don't think it's booty.

Comments: There's a new guide book out that has most of the routes in it. There's definitely more than 5 routes up there.

Comments: Yep, pretty wild descent. In the dark and the cables were down. To me, coming down off half dome was way scarier than the 90ft runouts on snake dike.

Comments: I don't think anything broke off. It's just a hard thin slab. It goes straight up and a little to the right. I don't want to sound like a dick, but 5.11s at Malibu creek are way different than 5.10 slabs at Tahquitz or Yosemite. Good luck dude! You'll send it soon.

Comments: There's 2 bomber 3/8s bolts at the top of this route. And an old 1/4in one too.

Comments: How can this a V3 be way harder than Clay Face which is a V5? This must be like V7.

Comments: I've never placed a glue in before so I don't know how they should sit. I camo all my bolts before I put them in. Also use a little paint pen to touch them up if I only paint the hangers and need to camo the nuts/bolt head. And spray paint really pisses me off, I've done a ton of graffiti removal in the angeles national forest. Luckily only climbers will see this so it shouldn't hurt our access.

Comments: Where is this? I've never seen any of this near twin peaks or anywhere above 6,000ft up the crest before.

Comments: Take the fun diagonal crack to a small belay ledge. Sling and flake and hang out. Then send your partner up the twin cracks and out of view to a fun ridge line scramble.

Comments: Does the forest service actually do anything productive anymore or just close stuff and tell us what we can't do?

Comments: Were they using it as a back up for rappelling? Or just as an ascender? I've ascended like 180ft using a shoulder length dyneema as a prussic and had no problems to unstick a rope. I can see it getting hot rapping with it but not as an emergency ascender.

Comments: I brought a second rope but left it at the top of the first pitch and rapped everything with a single 60m and then one double rope from the top of the first. Also I didn't have any tricams, but I found a nice spot for a BD #2 in one of the holes on the last pitch.

Comments: I just lead the undercling crack and then clipped the second bolt and then went to the top. We TRed the true line, and it's a little chossy getting to first bolt.

Comments: Really someone put pink tape/flags up to mark the trail? Stuff like this gets places shut down, you already can't park in the campground to climb.

Comments: There looks likes there's a fun line to the left of this one like a 5.9-5.10. Since there's bolts at the top it'd be easy to try it.

Comments: I finally got around to putting a bolt in. I top roped all of the problems and led the crack on the back side. Fun little spot.
