Great Photo, but this route, like most of it's neighboring routes, has been chiselled.
Oh! Must have missed that in the rule book. Thanks for changing the message for me, and I've rewritten the comment to only state the facts (omitting my previous biased comments).
Not really a new route as it's been there about 5 years or so...
The route is called Monster Hole (5.10b); the crux is getting stood up in the hole and requires some flexibility.
The dike traverse is Catch Of The Day (5.9+) and the crack on the right is Sacrificial Cam (5.10b).
This is the route High Strung (5.9)
Perhaps if you campus that section it's the crux...most people find the moves at the start the crux (it is easier at the crux if you're tall or have a long reach).
"Nerd gate"??? Is that your term for the crux of a climb?
Why is the bolt so far left? Looks like it makes the move even more difficult with the rope in the way.
Hendrix would be proud
This is the route Aero Space (5.10a/b)
It's in the So Cal Sport Climbing Guide (orange cover) in B&W. Looks great in color too - nice shot.
The painting of the Virgin Mary was done by an obscure religious sect of the Catholic Church called the Penitents. The Penitents believed that pain and physical suffering would bring them closer to God. They often engaged in self-flagellation to the point of blood-letting and would parade up the canyon with one lucky soul dragging a huge wooden cross. It was more popular around a hundred years ago or so but seems to be dying out now, although the painting does get freshened up every now and then...
This is actually the route Panning For Gold, which is just to the right of Whiskeroo.
Honeymelon strikes again.
Looks like Crank Queenie (5.8).
The name of this area is the Ammo Dump or No Jack City.
Got rope drag?
Great shot! Maybe this will help entice some people away, even temporarily, from the usual venues.
A fun route that sees little traffic.
A nice pic, but the slab is not that steep.
Recently extended for <b>extra</b> crimping pleasure.
Nice perspective that I'm guessing wasn't easily achieved. Look at that smog...breathe deeper!
Great route, gotta love the splitter crack as well as all the knobs.
That's pretty good for off the couch.
The person in the background is a distraction.
Nobody else in sight...amazing.
Nice photo that really captures the feel of the area.
You don't often see people on this route.
This would be even better if the top was cropped.
Nice perspective, and the lack of people in the background is a huge plus.
What is that, about eight miles high?
Lone Star Beer? Maybe try some 211 or Camo Ice...that'll get you up to the top and beyond...
EBGB's is a classic 5.10c old school route. Starts on the right shoulder, where the rope disappears, via a mantle and then traverses out left to the face proper. The climber's on easier ground (about 5.9 or so) with the bolt already about 10-15' below them...spicy! Nice photo, especially the warm glow of the rock.
That place is so ghetto; there is some good off-roading and camping on the hillside east of there, although that rig wouldn't make it very far.
Good to see some water there.
School of Rock
Next time get some gratuitous nudity in the shot.
What's with the chalk on the tree? Is that where people jam when they get scared? Nice photo by the way, although the foot in the air is total Bandaloop.
[quote]I, too, always take chain links, an ATC, and runners on 35 foot high sport climbs, especially when there's somebody hanging on a rope taking pictures 4 feet away...because you never know what could happen up there.[/quote]
Hey Joe - relax! Why don't you come to J Tree, New Jack, Williamson, Malibu, Hi-Desert...FUck ALl and SEND?????????????????????? 3
Looks like Hampi, India
