nope.. very much different areas. get away from the meadows and parking lot.. you will be alot happier for it. the best climbing is up the hill more.

to jimmy? walk along the road till pole 37.. go up the trail, stay left at the log over part of the trail.. keep heading up. ask directions along the way.. it's pretty easy. mtn project has a good route data base for the routes up there.

Went up there today. It was great. We did clipp-a-dee as well as things i should have learned in highschool, and teachers pet. All fun climbs. We will be beack up here again. Oh on a side note, Thigs I never learned, I think the bolt is too low. If you pop up by the 2nd bolt i think its a ground fall.

the .9 just right of the corner? i don't think so. it feels funky when you are there but i don't think you'd deck. Bolt is at like your knee when you can reach the jugs for the 2nd bolt.

never fallen so i don't know but DQ is a pretty experienced guy

We were going to try it and didnt feel right trying it with the second bolt out. May just traverse in from from the route on the right and clip it. Maybe i got the grades screwed up. Are there any new routes on that wall other than whats on mountain project?

from the corner L-R

.9 Things i never learned.. if this was missing a bolt i didn't notice when i was there a few weekends ago.. tho i didnt climb it

.6 Things You Should Have Learned in Kindergarten (this one is missing bolts.. i'm not sure why they got pulled)

.5 (name unknown) shares first bolt with the .6 but shoots off right

.7 Teachers pet .. bottom of the hill

I bumped a thread about it over on NEClimbs to see if anyone knows whats up (about the .6 )
