Location: UT : Saint George : Black Rocks : Sunny Side : Black Friday (5.11a)

Comments: My son Marty and I bolted this line. We called it "Black Friday" as that was the day we bolted it and red-pointed it. Good face climbing with a distinct crux and easy finish. We were surprised that this section of Black Rocks had not yet seen a route as it is a natural face climb on one of the sunny side buttresses. We originally thought it might be 5.10c but would welcome a consensus rating.

Comments: This route is called "Sand Puppy" and was initially rated 5.10-
I bolted it in hopes to establish a less difficult route for beginner climbers. It may be sandy forever.

Comments: This climb reflects what is fun about sport climbing. You spot a featured overhanging section of cool looking rock and you just want to see if you can climb it. This one will spit you off if you hesitate at the crux!

Comments: I am not sure why that first bolt gets taken off, but I have replaced it a couple of times. It was intact as of last week. March 2013

Comments: Fun and challenging route. Definetely more difficult on a swarmy hot July day. The canyon and resort is privately owned. We are lucky to be able to climb here at all.

Comments: One of the best routes for its grade in the canyon. Don't miss this one. And yes, it veers to the right after the 1st bolt.

Comments: Fun and challenging top rope. Has a trad line like feel to it without the hassel of placing gear. This is a tough and proud lead even with bolts.

Comments: The route has been extended upward about 17 feet to new "sport anchors". This bumps the difficulty up to 9+ or 5.10 in my opinion. Still one of the few moderate routes on this wall.
A good line to do to set up a toprope for the route to the right called "Somnambulance".

Comments: One of my favorite lines in the canyon. It can share the same anchor with Monkey Business. Stays in the shade essentially all year long. Rap hangers at the top are still solid but do spin a little. I consider it 10+ in difficulty.


Location: UT : Saint George : Snow Canyon State Park : Island In The Sky : Circus Wall : Pygmy Alien (5.7)

Comments: The first pitch has seen a lot of traffic over the years and climbs a bit harder than it's original rating now days as the patina crimps become smooth and worn. A 70 meter rope can be used to get off the first pitch. Still a classic climb in Snow Canyon State Park and worth repeating at least once a year.
