|I'd recomend climbing up from the back and then reaching around and clipping the second bolt and then lowering off and then starting the climb like a stick clip. Also this one is a pain to clean, I'd have a buddy TR/Follow clean it.|

|I've been climbing here for some time now and was wondering is there a Falcon Guide to all the routes in Apple Valley, Horsemans Center? The lackies at 5.10 outlet, Redlands, have no idea. Can you help?|

|Have not seen a Falcon guide Steve. But there is a Southern California Sport Climbing guide that covers this area.|

There are 6 bolts on here now, doesn't change the difference at all. I think there's one new one at the top so it's not such a runout to anchors.
OR one at the bottom so you don't accidently slip to your death before doing the move. Not sure... but there is now 6 bolts/hangers.
Pretty cool climb, first time I had to use a toe hook on a 10b.
Also a biaaaaaaatch to clean.. got more scratches up swinging around than actually climbing.

Pretty awesome climb!! it is really hard to clean...what i did was just untie, ran the rope through the rap rings, tied back in and then had my belayer lower me. When he was lowering i clipped a draw to my harness and the belay line which brought me down perfect to every clip. This is probably the best way to do it, if you aren't going to have someone follow/TR the route.
One of the best climbs for the grade in the area tho!
