Comments: A friend and I tried this earlier this year. It felt significantly harder and much less enjoyable than Take a Hike.

Comments: I second the stick clip.

The first crux felt like V4-V5, and the rest of the route is significantly easier.

Comments: Fun moves between good holds on beautiful orange rock. Best Route in Ogden?

Comments: I didn't place anything larger than a .75 camalot. A few larger nuts and some small cams protected it nicely. Fun route.

Comments: Look out for a loose block on the upper wall. It's on the left side of the dihedral in the gray rock (the upper crux). It can be skipped without much additional effort. Overall, a stellar route for Ogden!

Comments: Climbed this last Sunday. There was water running down the black streak on the right. I thought the route would move left of the water streak after the first bolt, but it did not. Finally got some dry rock on P2 of Cirrhosis. By the time I rapped, the streak was mostly dry, so maybe better to climb this in the afternoons. A stellar route, even with the water! You can link this with p2 of Cirrhosis for one long, awesome pitch.

Comments: Anybody know what the route is to the left of Layaway Plan? Looks like old bolts.

Comments: This is about as classic as it gets at SR. The old Dixie Cragger gives it 5.9, which I agree with. The crux is a couple moves thru the steep section at the top of the slab, above what seems to be a good piton.
