Comments: Best finish is on the arete up and left. I remember doing this before the hold broke years ago, and finishing straight up, but the left finish is way better!

Comments: With careful pad placement and a good spotter, the mantle is totally safe. Full on 5.13 in difficulty, but it can be done safely. I watched one of america's best young boulders come off the top over and over again before sending. This was just after he had flashed other double digit problems in the canyon. (and he wasn't tired)

Comments: With the exception of the Twin Sisters area and the upper elevation campsites (can't remember their names but they are the northern most sites) all major climbing areas are walkable from most any campsite- 40 minutes is probably the longest walk to get to an area you would come up against, and it would be a great walk. No bikes needed- the trails aren't overly bike friendly anyways.

Comments: I named this knowing full well the FA probably belongs to some Provo dude's girlfriend. If you know the details let me know...

I really enjoyed this thing and wanted to share it!

Comments: Again, a great route! Scary canyon is ideal on sunny, calm winter days. When Matt and I bolted this line, the anchor had already been installed by and unknown party. It is listed as a project in the 2003 Boise Climbs guidebook.

Comments: This boulder is known as "Surprise"- one of LCC's best V8's.

Comments: This problem is called Demon Days v10/11. It has only seen a few ascents, and has repelled some very capable boulders. The boulder is quite tall, and the bouldering sequence is thin, intricate, and powerful. Twenty moves are packed in before the topout- with most of those coming in the first 10 feet. Without a doubt one of the most beautiful boulders around- it would even standout among the beauties at the Buttermilks.

Comments: Its not just you, the happy face column crashed down in spring of 2004 I believe... certainly eerie to see it shattered at the base with bolts and hangers visible in freshly created talus blocks! I had climbed it the season before it came down.

Comments: Did you mean hardest move on the route? Definitely not the hardest move on the wall. With proper heel-toe action the start is V5- definitley no southpaw one arm strength required. The redpoint crux is higher.

Comments: I've scoped this route many times but never lead it. Its interesting to hear that the FA party started in from the high right crack- that was the only way it seemed sane to me, and the guidebook didn't indicate that. I remember climbing in from the right (I slung a tree on a legde for pro that I think is dead now)years back, having a look, and then down climbing and backing off because I was unsure of the line. The direct start looked like it had bad (flakey) rock and no pro. I don't remember it... more >>

Comments: Definitley not a 1 move wonder. 5.10 climbing till past the 3rd bolt, then a difficult clip, and a true 6-8 move boulder problem (V4)is encountered. There are many ways to do the crux, V4 is the easiest it gets. Going direct up the small crips and big moves makes this a great 12b for a 13a climber.

Comments: Felt 5.12c to me, at 5 ft 9 inches with a 5 ft 11 inch wingspan. If I had an inch less reach it could have been 5.14! The crimp/pocket section in the middle of the route was also tricky. Great route!

Comments: Powerful sequences down low until the juggy rail rest... then about 11c to the top. The lower bouldery moves are probably harder than anything on Predator, but over more quickly. Its V5 right at the 3rd bolt, so 12c is accurate to me.

Comments: A V3/4 boulder problem down low, and then its basically over, other than the fact that you could perish if you blew a clip...
A decent route that is in desperate need of re-engineering

Comments: A few bolts on this route, and the anchors, could be re-located to produce a better line. They are old SMC's anyways, so bring on the upgrade! Does anyone even climb this direct up the corner feature at the bottom? Seems everyone follows the lieback crack up and quite a bit left of the bolt line, and then cuts right into the corner at the third bolt...? Even with the detour, 12c felt right to me, and the crux was up higher at the second to last bolt.

Comments: An absolute masterpiece! I'm 5' 10" and call it 12d. The crux demanded a deadpoint to a shallow two finger pocket from a small and powerful undercling. V6 boulder problem to 5.11 climbing on perfect stone. Sublime.

This climb follows the line of pockets in the obvious black rock.

Comments: I believe this route was equipped by Dave Bingham, and then easily climbed by Micheal Stoger for the first ascent. Mike later climbed the route 9 times in a row, without a rest! Stoger's climbing abilities were virtually unmatched throughout this country. Originally From Austria (where he established the countries first 14a at age 19), an incredible series of events led to Mike meeting and be-friending
a group of Boise climbers in Joshua Tree. Those friendships led to a visit to Boise, where M... more >>
