|Has anyone climbed here this year? i am really itching to get on some real rock and this area seams the best chance to have a nice winter climbing session. Is there anymore info on this area someone would be willing to share?|

Marble Caves : good luck finding the trail, no-ones been here for 10yrs probably, really overgrown, bring a saw.. Awesome climbing in the 7a-7b range.
The bowling ball was easier to find.(although the 10mile post has been knocked over and was in a bush)
Just follow the gully down and then to the R to reach the base of the cliff, no disernable path and poison ivy.
Bowling ball routes are meh, dusty and not really worth it to be honest, plus randomly needing gear for routes, slightly annoying for a sport crag...
Harder routes look ok, i would probably tick all of trinity before going to the bowling ball (and then bring a wire brush and some hangers for the anchors! )
the warm up 5.10 route has no anchors (go L to"fearless leader" and dont kill the belayer with loose blocks)
