All good things must come to an end. I was hoping to keep under the radar until my group had had our pick and due to the limited parking. This area has been climbed for some time, but the history has been lost. I have been climbing in this area since 2008.
The lower wall with the bolted routes up the water groove is named the Garden Party Wall. Above is simply The Headwall. Left Flank Right Flank. The 5.10 sport route described here was June of 2011 and named Vegetative Estate by me, Jay Detweiler. The bolted line up the water grove and right (Shroom Groove FA went to a fellow named Denis in Sept. 2009. I bolted and led it May 2010. The center bolted line FA went to Sierra Dall (who was 67) on August 10, 2011. FFA was done by me October of the same year. We intended the slab line to be pure slab by staying out of the obvious cracks and run it as a pure slab. The left line up the water groove is called Griff-Orama. FA was done March of 2011 and is still his project. The crack to the left in the left-facing dihedral was also put up in August 2009 as a trad direct start to the headwall and is named Delusions of Grandeur. The bolted routes were set up to either be a single pitch or the beginning pitch to the headwall.
We have been to be as low impact and unobtrusive to the area as possible. Hangers are color cordinated with the rock, and I ask that everyone do the same and respect the area.
We have up up more routes and names for the area, but my time on the 'puter has run out. I will fill in more of the gaps as I can.
