Man these routes look cool. They are really short but the rock looks great. Probably 25 footers.

Are some/most of these routes finished being put up? Halphabet soup and the 8 look nice but I can't tell from the ground if anchors are in place yet.

3 out of 5 routes on this wall still have red tags. All need chains on the anchors. Old ropes need to be discarded please.

Poor little abandoned crag. What a shitshow up there... Would be a good spot if someone would finish the job

I would like to publicly apologize for the abandoned state of this crag. Between work and photography, I ran out of time to finish the job. I will try and make it out there soon to take the ropes down, and all red tags can be ignored.

So, does that mean there are FA's to be had or are the route details not updated?

Take a brush. And some chain and quicklinks. And a drill. And some bolts. Thanks to Johnny and the gang for getting the ball rolling up there, cool little spot.

Got up there today, finished cleaning the routes on the left side and pulled the red tags.

From what I could gather, routes 1-5 are listed backwards currently. It's really hard to tell with no descriptions, pictures, or bolt counts. The two project routes are on the left side, as the ropes are still hanging there, from looks like 2016 or earlier based on the previous comments. The 5.8 is the bolted crack behind the tree, which is more like 5.9 to 5.9+ for being sharp as hell. Then the 5.11 and 5.10b on the right side of the end of this section of wall. Then routes 6-8 are well back to the right near the start of the trail by the stairs about a 2 minute walk, and I think 7&8 are also out of order. Basically, still an unfinished crag. It's also is very dark and shaded also due to the trees.

But ... how could that be ?! It was none other than THE Jonny lightning who undertook the task of developing this area . How could someone who is red river famous not deliver ! These kids are a joke , stick to producing iPhone quality media and leave development to those with some sense of work ethic .

Anonymous seems to have a drill bit up his ass. Based on the displayed attitude of discontent it's likely one of the stainless powers sleeve anchor drill bits of the 6 inch variety

Yes, this crag was abandoned. Most anyone else would have finished bolting it 2 years ago. This was a disservice to the climbers who donated to the land purchase and who volunteered to build trails to the wall. Hopefully the guy who started bolting it can find a meaningful way to repay the community.
