Comments: That fist-sized rock is now gone, along with some other junk. There is more that needs removed. Watch what your use around the second bolt, there is still some choss....

Comments: Glad you posted this. FYI Kirk and I cleaned this up a lot while bolting Polar Sandals, so in fairness to Haas, it probably climbs better now....

Comments: Hip Hip Hooray! Thanks to the Staunton Park staff and others who may be involved for the lifting of some of the raptor closures. This, to me, is a HUGE step forward in terms of establishing Staunton as a true climber's park, with climbing interests a focus of the Parks management plan. It is also great that the bolting application process seems to be up and running smoothly; facilitating climber input on the decision making process is awesome!

My earlier, above comments were perhaps m... more >>

Comments: Ain't nothing wrong with this route. Feels like a short, fun, 5.7 sport route.

Comments: Sweet! New State Park to climb in!

Wait! You mean the climbing's all but closed, almost all of the time? Nice. Got to protect them raptors. Meanwhile, ah, forget it. Climbers lose again.

Maybe sensible heads will prevail and these blanket closures will be lifted in favor of a reality based approach. Time will tell.

Comments: Thanks, Jack! I wanted to tilt this but had no clue how much to do it, so I left the photo alone....

Comments: Seems as if the difficulty questions on this can be answered at the start of the problem. If you begin with the left on the low undercling/ sidepull, then it takes it down a notch, I believe. It's harder to begin with both hands on the arÍte, and move to the undercling, like Jay has pointed out.... Awesome! either way....

Comments: Andrew,
I did this a while back (2011-2012). You didn't see any chalk? I also did some minor cleaning. I didn't think it was "good enough" climbing at the time to post it. I guess the "off" foot rail and the junk up top made it forgettable. I am glad that someone else saw the line, and I am not the only fool who messes around on any cool looking thing they see, only to have some minor issue detract from a great problem. This one just missed it! Anyways, happy trails, and keep looking up!

Comments: This has a "new" hold on the right. Looks like part of a flake broke off to create a gaston for the right hand. This allows one to go up left hand first, then gaston right, then bump left up. Still seems V5ish but maybe easier off the deck.

Comments: This at least 3 stars. Exciting. One "bomb" rating from a Morrison hater, the rest are 3 and 4 stars. JUST DO IT!
