    whats up with the topo? It shows adding 3 new bolts left of 5.8 crack. Which, I think would be silly.
    I’m also not sure I like the idea of new climbing (read choss breaking and falling) above existing popular top rope areas. I’m voting no for now…

      Hi Varment
      The 5.8 crack pitch is out of sight behind the trees at the bottom of the topo and the bolts don’t start until a good ways above. RE loose stuff – it’s pretty clean up there – much more so than the crux pitch of Rincon which is more of a threat. The route angles right so most lose stuff will end up around the base of Hope that addresses your concerns
      Cheers
      Andy

    I don’t know if this is the place to express this l, but I’m concerned about the added traffic at the 5.8 crack anchor. There are already 3 routes that share that anchor (4 if you include folks rapping from Rincon). I don’t know if adding an anchor at the top of the 5.10 crack would help alleviate the congestion, but it’s a thought. Aside from that, I think this looks like a great addition to the area and look forward to trying it!

    Looks like a pretty independent line though rock I have scoped before and consider pretty good rock.
    I don’t see any problem with the submission. Yes please.
