Location: MN : Sandstone : Robinson Park : rock climbs : Sigma Wall : Wild Things (5.9)

Comments: While one of the best 5.9's trads in the state (big holds, overhang, good gear) - it is a death route. Do not put cams on the flake on the right or you will have most the climb fall down on you. The huge flake moves if you put a cam in it, and it holds up the rest of the climb. I am hoping the originals would mark it or annotate the description.

I used 2 #4's, one to start and one once over the overhang. Also a #2 past the second overhang. Needs slings for the overhang.

Comments: Just a heads up on the mining issues. Read an article Dec 7th local paper.

Resolution Copper is prospecting the largest copper deposit known to mankind..literally. Queens Creek is sitting on top of it. Currently there is bill in Congress to do a landswap of US forest land (oak flats, road to LDC) for other land so they can start operations. The mine will be underground 1.5 miles, but the land will shift so they don't want anyone on top when it all collapses. They are in the processes of cajoli... more >>

Comments: I was a newbie with no book or directions. So here it is.

From Echo Canyone parking lot look up to Monks Rock. if you can't see it you should not be climbing. Directly below it is the HeadWall, about 300 feet long and has various climbs on it. Above the headwall is Monk Rock. Behind Monk Rock (but starts at same level) is Gargoyol Wall where the bees swarm and kill people. On the left of Gargoyl is Hart Route were bees kill people.

From Echo Canyon parking lot haul your ass up the trail to fir... more >>

Comments: THis climb has seen its day. Very slimy. Last week leader wasted her leg on really bad rope burn. THis week leader fell backwards on her head and went to hospital.

I give this 2 stars going down. Wear a helmet.

Comments: Finally went up this again THANKS to Jeff for replacing the old crappy bolts. I think this is a great route, one of the better 11b's I'd say.

Comments: There are 3 pitches to the 5.6. 2nd pitch is 5.4'ish - loose rock. 3rd pitch uses WIDE WIDE gear up flake. You can see the achors from the top of the 5.8 climb on the right.

Comments: How it got its name:


"On a final note, the name “Quickdraw moves to Hollywood” has a story like most of the route names I come up with. Back when I climbed at RW a lot and was helping with development I had a good friend – Kelly Gorder. We hung out and climbed a lot together. He put quite a few routes up at RW. New kids, and Kelly’s arête are a couple of them. Anyhow he had a dog named Quickdraw. Like a lot of dogs Quickdraw was a lover. Happy just to know you. Well Kelly and his fami... more >>

Comments: Oh yeah, when I replaced the anchors, I turned the old 3" bolt and the rock just fractured and the bolt fell out with rock crumbles in my hand. So I put 5" bolts in and left the last 3" bolt as the "Hail Mary". That's why there is 10' of chain up there.

Comments: IMHO, this is THE classic 5.11 at RW. Crack, face, overhang, crimpers, devious slopey finish when you are spent. And the view is fantastic. Anadonia can't compare, 1 move wonder.

Comments: TO the left of Buster Brown about 20 feet there is a line that I did that started thin fingers 5.10'ish and over the hump you need HUGE gear double #4's and #5's. I'm a wuss so I scampered down and TR'd from top.

At the top when TR'ing, look for the double pine trees next to each other and further on a bent over big pine tree that looks like someone sat on it all curled to the ground. In between the double pine trees you can rap down to rap anchors for this climb. Need #3 and ... more >>

Comments: Wow. Wow. Did I say Wow.

Talked about Mega-bolted and some ultra classic routes. Never did I feel scared, and I am a 100% wuss lead climber. The people that did this are creating a world class #1 top destination. I've been on the road 3 months and this blows away any other crag.

I heard from a local that Mike Snyder???? Some Mike guy did most the work on this canyon. The approach paths must of took YEARS. Talk about hard work. And bolting 500+ climbs with bolts every 6 feet. Wow. Must ... more >>

Comments: This is actually a 3 pitch route. Pitch 2 is mostly bolts with maybe 1 medium cam. Super easy 5.4. but crumbly so be carefull. Pitch 3 goes up about 60 feet up WIDE flake so bring big gear maybe #4 and #5. Looks easy but I did not do it. I saw anchors on top of flake about 20 feet to right of the end of the flake crack. I saw the anchors from a different climb, the 5.8 crack back to the left. There are also rap bolts on the flake itself so you can bring 1 rope.
