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: Ben, why are you even trying to go to a sandstone crag in the rain?

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: Did a fun variation and stemmed between D and E and topped out over the boulder wedged in the crack.

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: Dyneema isn't going to melt when used as a prussic.

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.

Comments: I bolted this route like a year ago so you can climb it without hopping a fence. It's a little chossy, but I've climbed worse at Texas Canyon.

The route also has a belay station half way up so you can multipitch it. Also since its like 120ff tall you only need 1 60m rope.

Basically nothing special but fun to do if you live near by and want to climb something new of get a lap in after work.

Comments: No it's not what it's called. I don't know the name of these 3 routes. They are mentioned in the So Cal bouldering guide but not named. If someone knows them please post up so I can edit it.

Comments: I just saw it in a guide or something rated as V1, but yeah for sure it's pretty easy. No pads or rope in 1968 is pretty badass.

Comments: A 60M rope worked perfect to rap down from the bolts next to the tree on the first pitch. I only did 100ft of the second pitch and then rapped down off a big tree.
