It's been fun being a part of the research team while this map was being developed :) nice work jeff!
anyone who is interested in the upper pitches of main cliff should be very psyched about this!

Thanks and I am psyched!
I count two sport routes do not show rap anchors at the top. One of them is The Thing? Are we missing some rap anchors from the cliff?

Woops. From left to right: There is a two bolt anchor at the top of Bourban Street. The Thing has an anchor (near the top of the cliff) on the map... but I forgot to mark the anchor for Steel Curtain. I'm not sure where the original Iron Man's 3rd pitch finished but that area most likely needs to be cleaned out when no one else is around. The Thang no longer has anchors due to the rock fall. I think that's all I missed.

Big thanks again to the administrators (and Bradley White) for helping me clarify where things went. Even if it's not perfect, it's fairly close.

OK, I confused The Thing with Steel Curtain. Thanks for the clarification. I did Bourbon Street a couple of summers ago and it definitely had rap anchors then.
The detail for the right side is amazing too. So many good routes there.

Any quality route potential above Gunboat / The Skewer / Beat Junkie ? Rock looks pretty good from afar but angle might be too slabby .....

Not so good. If it was on the ground somebody might do some low star easy routes, but coming up from the routes below would be a big let down.

Looks great! A couple little things I noticed: The 3rd pitch of iron man should actually be a little to the left, starting left of the birch tree on the ledge. There used to be an old anchor there (still there?) The route then followed the left edge of the huge rock that came out (you can see the change in rock coloration), topping out where you show it (there was an old pin anchor just down from the lip). The big yellow corner that is there now was buried behind rock before the avalanche.
