I scrubbed these routes about a half hour, they are all classic but obviously need a lot more work. The top half of this one is kinda sketchy until the friction gets better. Definitely well bolted. Must do's. Way to go Rick Weber...great find!

Wow, I can't believe all the work that has gone into this fabulous venue. This route is still a little sandy but it was fun. I liked the friction up top. Pretty crimpy start and then some fun up top with a fun crux in the middle of the climb.

I Rock, but even little old me (120) managed to break off a hold or two, sorry about that, it will feel a lot better when fatties like my boyfriend keep huckleberrying their way up the wall, these routes are almost always in the shade (cept up top), comfy belay stances, clean falls (andrew on SAM), great place to spend the afternoon. boo yeah

The second 'pitch' is awesome. I kept thinking about redneck scrambling around Indian Staircase, Halfmoon, or Courthouse Rock...with bolts! If that doesn't put a smile on your face just close your eyes and pretend you're climbing at Looking Glass.

2nd pitch is beautiful. Kinda reminds me of a finish on a climb in Rumbling Bald in NC.

Typical of this section but overall well laid out.

The start is very much like the music routes at Roadside. Saw a snake just above the first anchors and where you want to grab for a hold.

A great route to practice multi-pitch climbing. I found the second pitch (damp) insultingly positive, and a sketchy lead.

Practiced multipitch climbing for the first time here. Worked well. Climbs weren't too interesting otherwise. Thought getting past first set of anchors was the crux.

Tough start, but fun climbing above.
