Comments: Bioturbation is the disturbance of soil/sediment by living things. So it can be above or below sea level. Maybe they saw some creature borrowing when up at the wall or noted the cows trampling the soil in the valley floor?

Comments: you guys think the sit is v5? definitely easier than smiley right stand which is supposedly v4. i guess if you're short the reach to the sidepull is pretty big, but maybe you guys use the intermediates?

Comments: We climbed infrared the day prior to doing this route, and both my partner and I thought the last pitch of this was way harder than the last pitch of Infrared. I'd give that last pitch 11++.

Comments: the supplement the beta above.

pitch 1) Climb a short ow off the ground into hands entering a chimney. Exit the chimney on hands up a 40 foot corner that pinches down toward the end. 2 bolt belay.

pitch 2) Hands and big hands all the way. 2 bolt belay.

pitch 3) Climb a 6" ow for 10 feet (holds and feet make it forgiving). Continue up on a mixed bag of fingers, hands, and jugs to a large belay ledge. 2 bolt belay.

pitch 4) Stacked blocks in a chimney get you into a stemming section to surmoun... more >>

Comments: This climb is now equipped with a rap anchor set up about 5 feet below the old slung tree. Fixe ring bolt, and a Fixe or Metolius hanger (can't remember) with 2 quicklinks. All stainless steel.

Comments: Robert I would say take a single set from blue tcu to #1 camalot, and maybe medium nuts. You would be climbing a fair distance on p3 between bolts without pro as many of the pins on the route aren't protection quality, and serve only as route markers.

Comments: 2nd what Mr. Hummus said. The bolt is bad, and can slide out of the hole upwards of 1/2 inch.

Comments: Erik don't change the route without first contacting Fred Henion. He is all for safe, fun, well done routes, and will be open to your thoughts. You can find him on facebook.

We just always stay to the left up there and only use the bottom most part of the flake for a foot when clipping the chains.

Comments: Cold Fusion is the popular main season ski descent as it is lower angle, wider, and generally more friendly. The grunge is usually saved for the spring when the snowpack has firmed up, and skiing conditions can be considered safe at the steep 50+ degree upper slope. Either way i'm sure it's a fun climb for some, and a great descent for others!

Comments: There is loose block of considerable size at the top of the crux fingers section at the first slopey horizontal. Be careful!

Comments: Beware this is one of the classic couloirs in the wasatch for skiing. If you see skiers ahead of you it would be wise to either catch up to them or bail as they're going to send debris onto your during their descent.

Comments: Conversely if you want to french free or fraid through the tough free sections this climb is an absolute riot, and goes way faster than something like moonlight or lunar X. Highly recommend not using aiders or jugs until the last pitch off toquerville tower.

Comments: The free move there is great! Probably no harder than 5.5 as you hand traverse that rail then throw a leg in the wideness.

Comments: I'm guessing those eluding to a bivy at the block slept in a portaledge as the rocker block is only 5 ft x 3 ft. The best natural bivy low on the route is the ledge before the bolt ladder.
