5 out of 5 stars good area

this is a fun problem. the second grey streak has an obvious line of many pockets that leaves everyone going up a different way....until you get to the top....then it thins out in a hurry...there is a small two finger slot high and way right.....it allows u to reset feet... then in the center there is a small dish (key word being small) I used it to bump for the jug way high and left.....then just move feet and up u go....u can throw for the jug without the dish but it's not easy ...it caused me to barn door off the rock because of where my feet had to be to reach the dish .....I'm a short climber (5'4") ....this being said it was hella fun ......taller climbers may find the rating a little soft but still very fun good area with lots more to work on

5 out of 5 stars use your feet/foot

I usually post a pretty big description but if u can't c these holds....go home...the key for this one and abash is when u sit down there are two obvious pockets grab the top with right hand reach back to two finger pocket and then stuff your RT foot in the bigger hole beneath your right hand and flex your foot ...after that you can reach over the lip with either hand to multiple holds.....holds are slick but all three of the climbs here are super fun

5 out of 5 stars climb gets in your head

This is a great climb. I personally thought the rating was a little off.....(I don't feel V1's should involve legit two finger holds and it's a way different climb for tall vs short) that being said.....as your staring at it the rock it has an arching crack that you start (perfect LH undercling if u look) then go straight up the middle ....you will see an obvious line of pockets, grab the bottom with right hand (2 finger), lean out (if your short like me way out with right foot stupid high)grab 3 finger pocket (LH) set your feet then throw for the crack on the roof (RH)....I reset my feet then throw left over the top to a deep 3 finger pocket...then right heel over and mantle/heal pull up.....this climb is all about trusting your ability and your spotter ....the angle is funny and makes the the fall very sketchy so bring at least 2 pads.... Tall guys will have way better feet in the start....if your short (like me) the key is getting the right foot as high up on the right side of the crack as possible and hanging full skeleton to reach the hold... I grabbed the crack LF(toe hook) as i went for the 3 finger then released right as I got full stretch and it lands perfect...good luck b safe

5 out of 5 stars If you like traverses this is a good little warm up/project

I started left to right ....begin in grey streak with line of pockets and follow the seam right....good holds in large pocket past bulge(good hold on flat part of bulge also)...then it's just a matter of keeping your feet on the wall if you look there are some small pockets you can toe in...you cant see them when your on the wall so find a reference point....in the end i put a heal in the last giant pocket and worked over....it's a forearm burner....and watch the landing...it's not high but the rocks make it easy to roll an ankle....

5 out of 5 stars trust your feet

fairly easy to find..just past big tree the white streak is a little more grey now...sit down and grab obvious pockets...two finger left and three finger right(although I used two pockets to get the three fingers) feet are all but none existent.... I threw left hand to the large hueco (grab in the center of it...it's got teeth) move left foot to small heuco i smeared right......next throw right ....there are three pockets if you grab far right with right then match left hand in the left pocket you can put your left foot in the big hueco where you had your left hand...now just mantle to standing...sorry not really any hands at this point till your standing.....little sketchy..lot of fun...you finish out up and left but its pretty much a latter at that point.....

4 out of 5 stars worth the stop

Two finger left hand pull, tiny nub for a right foot in the center.....TINY!!!!.....throw right to rectangular outcropping...move left foot out smear the only flat spot there.... I matched left hand to right (tight but doable) ..... then slap hard over the top with right to a three finger little waco (typical rogers topout...UGLY....lol) .....I'm short (5'5") so I slapped twice over the top to reach the hold...just mash like hell on the first....It's a fun, short problem...the rating to me is spot on...seen a few taller guys throw a leg over.....don't put your pad to close to the rock you come off further than it looks...other then that have fun B safe

4 out of 5 stars "Nature's Mace" red point ascent

Been calling this one "nature's mace" cause of the amount of dust and debris that will blind you on the final holds if you aren't in to cleaning before climbing. Not hard to find if you follow the guide.....sit down and heel hook a flat out cropping on the bottom....as you pull up the hook will role to a foot and then it gets fun....in typical Rogers climbing the topout has tiny little two finger slopers on the bulge then get a foot and throw for a jug under the top boulder....short but fun.....if your short, like me, don't underestimate the greatness of the one finger pocket in the middle 2/3rds up and center, you don't have to be strong it's not holding your weight it just keeps you snug to the wall....

5 out of 5 stars turkey leg indeed

once you find the sequence for your feet this one's not to bad....make the big lunge from underneath then move right foot out to hook a pocket and left where right was....then turn loose of "turkeyleg" for the next pocket.....its full of pockets that look good but are not so don't overreach thinking you can bypass holds....also the little sloper is great for an em between to the next hold......lets you turn into the rock and lessons the pull....hope this helps some....and I agree with the others at least a V4

5 out of 5 stars a blast

for short climbers (like me) once you grab the little sloper on the edge put both feet up in the hole and push out like a V (it's a little sketchy feeling at first) then you can make the reach with left..... after that hit the solid pocket with right...then throw a (R) foot over.....then right again to a little two finger pocket (not the root) pull hard and claim the prize...place your pads good if u break lose on the swing you go out a good ways...hope this helps it's a great climb.....and I'm 5'4 if your wondering how short.....lol...
