New bolts. 7-inch glue-ins and moved for easier clipping. There is also a new trail that is direct and mostly free of poison-oak.

Awesome route! totally recommended. I've seen that just right to deliverance there's another route that after 4 or 5 bolts meets deliverance, anyone has information about this climb? grade,name. Thanks!

I guess Squeal Like a Pig is the route alone on the very right part of the crag, alone.

It's a new route. 5.12+ I don't think it has a name yet but I'm sure it will have some sort of Dueling Banjos/Deliverance type name.

Not sure if it was just my hangover and the warm temperatures, but this one felt pretty hard for the grade and also very reachy at the 3rd bolt crux. There's chalk on a micro-crimp rail in between the better holds, but all of it is unusable as the lip completely crumbled. I wonder if it was recent or from a long time ago? I found a little part that had no chalk on it (we are talking about a 4 mm edge here) and promptly broke it off on my 2nd try. My wife who's 5'1" managed to just barely do the move, but it looked like V6 for her. Significantly harder than Jason and the Argonauts, which is similar style. Amazing route!

The route on the right is Dueling Banjos 13b (FA: Steven Roth). I'd love to give it a try once the wife forgets about that bushwack approach (-:
