Onsight Onsight ascent by: annette on 2012-04-21 (View Climbing Log)

3 out of 5 stars interesting

Interesting moves toward the top. Worth climbing if you are at this wall...but don't go out of your way to climb this route...there are far better 10's at the park

Hang Dog Hang Dog ascent by: Hogge on 2010-12-21 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars sweet climb over a risky ledge

Probably "R" rated depending what the leader does getting to upper bolt. Clip high and risk breaking bones on the ledge. Climb higher, and a fall probably clears the ledge. Austin Rock had this as 5.9---no way.

Flash Flash ascent by: secander on 2010-01-18 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars Guide book listed it as a 5.9

though it definitely felt like a 5.10... I dunno but maybe I was able to flash it because I feel like I should be able to flash a 5.9.

Red Point Red Point ascent by: tharris242 on 2009-10-31 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars First outdoor lead fall.

I think this may be the best route of the five in this area (I apparently did not notice "Tree - 5.9" or "Mai Type - 5.10"). I enjoyed the start.

Made some bad hand choices on the upper slabby part, resulting in my first outdoor lead fall.

Bolts; 2 chain anchors.
