A facebook page “Courtright Reservoir Rock Climbing” has been constructed to receive comments on new projects at Courtright and vicinity and also offers new route reports and also field check corrections on the Courtright Guide. This will be info-central in accumulating information on areas covered under this guide, however please continue to share on super topo the outstanding things happening at this place.
Gotta love our Sierra backyard!...d.

Mike, I’ve got to get another box of books from k.d. But will send you and several others their just deserts. You all were so great in supporting the project...one condition though, you need to promise to sign my personal copy.
Regards, d.

On a side note and out of respect to those developing projects, please consult others that have been in active pursuit of finishing a new line or intially starting them (ie red tagging a bolt etc) or even privately shared plans to start something new. My suggestion would be either privately contact those already active or post to the FB page and inquire. I, personally, have shared information though a private conduit, only to have my project 'jumped'. That person now has an all-time low trust level of ZERO!! Please don't be a dooooche bag and rob someone else of something they've already invested time, money, resources and the physical efforts, to include emotional fullfilment, when putting up a new route or routes. Thanks!

Ohhhhh, I thought red flags were telling me where to start climbing or where to find free bolt hangers.

On Saint of Circumstance there is now a bolt at the "5.8 runout" part of the first pitch, put in by one of the first ascent party.

On Penstemon, Crooked Neck, what is shown in the guide book for the last part, is actually probably the top of Sit up Slick. That finish allows for a rap off and isn't a bad way to do it. On the first ascent of Crooked Neck we didn't place any bolts and somewhere near where there is now a protection bolt we went left and topped out.

On Solar Energy on Power Dome, on the 100 to 120' second pitch, there was no protection. We went right and then back left, maybe 5.7 to 5.4 to a spooky, but easy ramp with no bolts. The topo in the guide shows going straight up with 2 bolts on that second pitch, but I don't think those bolts are there, at least not when we replaced all the quarter inchers on the route and made the single bolt plus piton (third) belay into a double bolt belay when we found the piton was gone. I seem to recall there was a bolt added 20-30' above there by somebody else.
