wml, you should seriously think about giving CV Sentinel a try down this way, too. I predict you would not be disappointed! :)

Have fun. Tomorrow is supposed to be another glorious day here. Wish I could go two days in a row, dang!

I saw a couple of cars parked by Fortress today (Footloose?). Haven't seen Kenny's truck, though.

Monkeys are sending!

I am in the lodge again waiting for my wife and drinking bad beer ;)

Ron, First crux is immed. around the corner from sunwall, right? I thought left of red pillar. I'm headin up today. Weston, if you haven't done whisker biscuit you should. and the easy routes in the cat scratch area are a lot of fun as well.

Sounds like the description for First Crux to me. The Red Pillar route is ok but the stuff on the front side of the formation are much better and offrer a great approach to the Main Alcove where Up the Nuthin' is located... never did that route, went left at the triangular roof section a steep 10+ overlap led to a belay in the trough. I "fixed" an old cam anchor and rapped to the base of the second pitch of Serenity Now, possibly the best 5.10 crack in the area. Dan There are three climbs above the large ledge at the Top of the books. From left to right 5.6r, 5.8 and 5.7.

Red Pillar anchors are way messed up. Had the same experience when we topped out. Spicy for sure.

Chim Chim. Are you heading up tomorrow? I need to get the Hell out of work. Shoulder is still f'd up but its workable.....

The area is actually very well documented by Chim Chim. Just not available at your local book store.

The rope drag sucked under the arch. Rope Caught under a cam there and was stuck, had to downclimb to unstick it.
OULD is classic. Top out and there are several more climbs on the next tier that are spectacular. Cant remember the names but there is a 10a corner crack that chim lead barefoot with me several years ago.
Its all good up there.

OULD I believe is 10c. Crux is a balanced move that throws you to the right when you need to stay balanced left to place gear. So much up there and so little time. When you heading up?

one thing was done there bout 78.. Started at the base of what is now called bandit crag,, and went up the ridge above in a very wandering seven pitches - some shorties as many a tower , block and corner were done or navigated around on the way.

Heard about some stuff going on up there but have no details. Dan and I put up a Trad route there in 2008 with walk off then went and put up April Fools wall in the next gully. I remember there was a lot of potential for some sport routes up from Bandit. Ill have to check it out and take some pics

That would be a hell of a lot of wandering to get seven pitches. You guys had brass ones
