I think I would agree with Global for sport. I thought Disappearer was pretty cool, though.

The rock quality at the Zoo definitely lowers its appeal....although the two short steep 12a's Hippocrite and the one to its right make up for a lot as they are bullet proof. Hey and the fact that it is super shady in the summer doesn't hurt either.

I agree with Ray too, as the Solar Collector has that terrible grid bolted sameness to it that is pretty uninspiring...even though some of the lines there are OK.

These two crags get my vote as least favorite sport crags at the Red.
Lest we all forget... climbing is a mostly meaningless pursuit that we do for fun.

Solar Collector does suck....but what about Police Brutality. hmm that was cool.

The zoo definitely sucks....Hipocrit is awsome.

Global is a gumby trad area...Out for Justice is my favorite 11 face climb.

Purple Valley kinda stinks....But Come in your Lycra has those little perfect crimpers, and you have to admit that Electric Cowboy is a cool name.

It is all good. But I would say that Pistol Ridge has my least memorable sport routes.

Pistol Ridge because there's only 4 sport routes and it's a really long, steep hike up there. The routes aren't that bad, it's just not worth it to hike all that way for just the sport routes.

I hate all sport climbing.

Bolts are just there to be chopped.

Chopping 10,000 bolts would take awhile.........

Not sure if Pebble beach qualifies as a 'sport' crag, but its pretty low on my list.

lost ridge for sure.

you people are fucking stupid if you think the solar collector is ugly and the routes suck/OK. it's probably because you can't get your fat black dildos out of your asses and up the routes. the orange wall? man it rocks! so does ethics police and herd mentality!

Wow for the first time I sort of agree with Horatio Felacio, I mean I don't know about the 'black dildos' but the routes at the Solar Collector Rock!!

Yeah I guess it's no fun once you've sent all the routes at both, is it, Johnny? :P

Or it's no fun when there's nothing there you CAN send. The Lode kicks ass and you cannot tell me Torrent doesn't have some of the best routes in the Red, right down to Wadcutter. I guess ones perception of quality is as subjective as the ratings.

...quitting drinking is kinda like washing your hands after you take a crap...why start now?
