Comments: I like your name of the extension. Fun play on names. I had thought about getting back out there and extending the climb but never had the right partner at the right time. Good job.

Comments: Fun climb with an amazing view at the top. Well worth the hassle of timing it with the low tide.

Comments: Climbed the first pitch in January 2016. Excellent line. Lots of insects on this wall that is on the edge of the rain forest.

Comments: Climbed the first two pitches with John Tully yesterday. Broke a hold on the upper section of the second pitch and went for a ride. The route is still evolving as more climbers get on it. Good anchors and bolts.

Comments: I just got back from climbing in Railay. This was my fourth visit (since 2009) to the area to climb and enjoy the beaches and do a little scuba diving. The climbing is still fantastic and every year there are more titanium rebolted routes which is nice. I however, did notice a lot more visitors to the beaches in general. Not so much an increase in climbers, but a definite increase in overall numbers of tourists and families. This was a little disappointing as I found the paths and walkways ... more >>

Comments: I haven't been up to this crag in quite a few months. Good job on sending the route ! I had not yet "sent" it before I returned to the desert around St. George to climb.


Location: UT : Saint George : Chuckawalla Wall : Apostasy (5.10a)

Comments: It may have been a 10a when it was first bolted, but now with the rounded and polished holds it feels more difficult. Todd Perkins has rebolted it with glue in wave-bolts and thus protects much safer than in the past and is an OK alternative if the other (and better) 5.10s to the left are occupied.

Comments: Climbed this route for the first time Oct 22, 2015. Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the route. Nice belay ledges. Took our approach shoes up with us and it made the walk-off more pleasant.

Comments: A great route? Probably not. The most climbed route at Crawdad Canyon. Yes. For many people this may be their first sample of rock climbing. Bored but wanting to warm up and put up the rope for the beginners in your group? Then climb the route 3 different ways. Up the center. Using the crack to the left. Undercling the crack to the right. All back to back.

Comments: I often climb this route when I am at the Fly Trap wall. The top 4 bolts are on excellent rock and require sustained climbing at the 5.11 grade. Don't miss this route or the route Moucha immediately to the left.

Comments: The begining of the climb is directly over a metal railing. I usually stick clip the first two bolts to avoid falling and impaling myself on the metal post. Tricky crimping to a blocky undercling then easier face climbing to the anchor. Nice basalt face climbing.

Comments: Another one of my favorite routes at this crag. Long and interesting climbing. I kind of like the flake section but as long as it stays solid. So far it seems fine.

Comments: We always climb this route if we are in the area. Short but pumpy and a crescendo climb. You can finish by climbing to the left of the chains, but a dyno to a good hold on the lip is the most exciting way to top out.

Comments: I really like this route and often use it as one of my warm up climbs. Nice long route with fun movement. If you are breaking into leading a 5.10 climb you might find this a good one to go for.

Comments: I actually enjoyed this route. There are definitely better 5.10 routes to be had at this crag. Worth climbing if you are on this section of the wall.

Comments: The fall above the slabby ramp could hurt you. Be solid at leading hard 5.9 routes before attempting. Having said that, the top portion has fun climbing.

Comments: I rebolted the climb a few days ago. I used stainless steel glue-ins (Wave Bolts) by climbtec. It has 5 bolts to chain anchors. I also tried to position the bolts to make it more top-rope friendly but the climb does naturally traverse a few feet to the left. I hope people continue to enjoy this less than average route as I notice that it gets heavy traffic. Probably because it is the only "easy" climb at Chuckawalla.
