Location: UT : Saint George : Green Valley Gap : The Quickening (5.12a/b)

Comments: This is a really fun crimpy / balance oriented route. I feel like this is one of the better routes at the gap. It's sustained with quality moves. Would make a good project for someone looking to move into the 12's.

Comments: For the most part they climb at all the places that they climb at in the winter - just at different times of the day. Some places are a bad idea to visit in the summer like the underworld or zen wall because they have such a short shade window.

Comments: I'm just not seeing the 10a on this route. The first couple bolts require balance and good sloper work. I felt the opening moves on this one were more difficult than anything on glitter gulch.

Comments: would be a three star route if the start wasn't so awkward. The strange start is fairly mild if you get the beta right (my first time hit every single crappy edge hoping for something better).

Comments: Yes and no Mr. Brown. This route was semi bolted by the guys that put up all the original routes back in the day. For some some reasons mostly unknown the bolts were pulled and the holes well covered (if you look closely you can find a couple). This route follows a slightly different line and avoids the problems it originally had (one of which was water runoff in the black streak).

Comments: I think the grade for this rate is fairly accurate. However in keeping with the sandbag nature of chuckwalla in general I think the grade should be more like 12d as it is much more difficult than many of the other 12's in the area (mostly because it is sustained hard 11 climbing whereas the others have a couple 12 moves and then 5.10 to the top).

Comments: The whole time I kept thinking, iron messiah. It's a bit harder, and the rocks a little looser, and in general more fun. I'm not interested in climbing this thing again, however it's worth it for the summit. I'd advise you bring some extra webbing and some rap rings to augment/replace anything from sun wear.

Comments: most folks layback the flake (or bulge) which feels exposed, however it's pretty easy to keep jamming it which doesn't feel exposed at all.

Comments: for a harder and interesting variation try climbing the last 20 feet using only the thin crack on the right, I think it goes at about 11c this way

Comments: The hanging belay at the top of pitch 2 could use a clean and replace of the tat that's hanging from it at the moment. All the rest of the belays look in descent shape at the moment.
