Anyone have any info on new routes in Jackson Falls/Drapers not in the guidebook? Last time we were there this summer (June-ish), we saw quite a few new bolted routes going up and heard of others. Looking for some in the 5.9-11 range. Anyone have any info like locations/ratings?? Wish this site had a way to search regions by date of first ascent or date when the route was added. Thanks for the help!

I would love that too. Unfortunately, there is no place where all the newer routes are documented. The best you can do is to use your guide and compare by Section the routes defined on this site.

Jeff i think put up 3 new 11's a bit past the gallery(in the direction of Railroad/Chicken Shack). Look for shiny bolts.

Other than that id say your best bet is to contact one of the developers in the area for a showing. They are usually there everyweekend anyways.

Cheers

I just climbed a nice new route near Chicken shack. It's actually right next to 146 Flinging Hog. It seemed like about 5.8-5.9. Really nice climb with 8 bolts + anchors. I tried to trad climb it and was successful though a little run out at the top.
