4 out of 5 stars If I knew that was the name of that route I would've definitely made a point of climbing it during a bad weather day. Great picture....I personally like the angle.

The pic makes me wanna be there NOW! But Both time's I've tried the route we had to turn back after this pitch (2005-partner issues, 2006-weather issues). I'd love to see what the rest of it's like!

4 out of 5 stars Love to see the enthusiasm! The compression stuff is unfortunate, but it is a great pic regardless of the guidebook 'inconsistencies'. Keep sendin' cool shots of the creek, hope to be spanked there come April...any route suggestions for a first-time visitor?

4 out of 5 stars The 'spotter you' looks like he's really into helping if the 'climbing you' falls. Freud might have something to say to one of you about that. Otherwise creative

4 out of 5 stars sporto's amaze me. Crack is tha sh... take a lick

what do you climb, the bricks or the mini-bouldering there? Nice pic, but I thought this was a climbing site.

5 out of 5 stars needs enlarging? That's the Cirque man. That place is large enough. MAN country! I'd love to go and become a man.

5 out of 5 stars If you think that looks good (which it does), seriously, find a pic of Exasperator...That is an extremely beautiful crack and climb. First pitch is excellent and the second pitch is not a "squishy" 10c in my opinion...it's solid. I'll have to see if I have it on my drive and I'll post.

4 out of 5 stars looks just like me...no friends.

OK, it's been nearly a year and no objections....did it get removed? if not and you are going to, lets get some people and make it a party! Sounds like there are lots of bolts up there that need to go away.

View this Photo
I can beat the new bolts down low...it's called training! What the hell is up with this shit.

you know what "retro-bolter" means in my native language...FAG!

So I assume the yellow looking stains on the rock are the decomposing piss of the climbers that have gone before...good amount of 5.11 climbers in Phoenix. I would probably leave my pee stain right after the 5.10 traverse. The desert makes my pee smell narly so you'll know where I've been. Solid lead.

5 out of 5 stars anybody up for laps? those cracks look superb. good to see them rated with the YDS.

3 out of 5 stars One more star than flint cause 1 he can't subtract, 2 its a very nice line, and 3 you had to get the rope up there somehow (where's that picture?).

5 out of 5 stars beauty eh!

View this Photo
That it is. You also have the 5.7 to the left and a couple other routes off picture to the right from 5.7 to 5.11 all short but fun.

5 out of 5 stars really very nice.

Talk to Mike at the ranger station over there or go across the street from Royal Columns. They'll have all the closure information.

5 out of 5 stars I love this route. knowing how steep it is, I like the angle you are showing...its different. hats off to the ladies.

5 out of 5 stars that's what this site should be ALL about! awsome pic great looking route

5 out of 5 stars how about we get a few people together when the season is good and end this discussion with some visual confirmation, up close...with a few friends and a routes comparison of course. Gotta be scientific.

yeah well that's where I kept my phone...very important.

5 out of 5 stars that's funny krosbakken, when I look at your profile I can't seem to find the climber either...
Nice shot Brad.

5 out of 5 stars that's pretty.

that looks more like a fist jam.

Just did it....Excellent route...whatever it's called. pictured is actually the p3 traverse.

View this Photo
The splitter to the right is a sweet looking, slightly overhanging offwidth. Primed to be a short variation to p3 of SSC. anchor at the base of it and rap chains at the top-left (ab. 10' of face traverse). definitely looks harder than 5.9 :)

Not The Mace (5p 5.9 regular route) as denoted in the pictures 'location'.

View this Photo
if a chunk blew, it didn't change the grade 5.9+struggle. Jeff and I did it yesterday. 2nd pitch wasn't too bad, compared to p3 and p4 struggles.

way to represent the UP Manny!
