Comments: I supplemented the bolts with a handful of small camming devices: a #1TCU up to a .75 BDC4

Comments: In one of first text to cover the area (Bjørnstadt's Desert Rock - Rock Climbs in the National Parks) this route is the Boulder Overhang. If you prefer also, it is an easy scramble around left to build a TR anchor (#3 Camalot and some smaller TCUs)

Comments: I do believe that the direct variation to the final pitch is 5.9 slab (protected well enough) and not a 5.9 crack.

Excellent route.

Comments: Shares an anchor with a mid 5.11. Why pass up a free top rope?

Comments: Recently rebolted AND retrobolted. New anchors about 50' up. This route should indeed receive it renaissance. A quality warm up climb.

Comments: Does anybody out there have any information on the routes that have "recently" been bolted on Devil's Slide, above the town of Stark? Out for a walk today and saw about 7 bolted lines and a handful of anchors midway up. I grew up in town and started technical climbing once I had left, so in the back of my mind I had always wondered about the rock, which honestly had always and still does, look like a choss pile. Love to hear some beta if anyone has some though. Thanks.

Amen.

Comments: If I were to do this route again, i would likely bring a #4 Camalot. It would have made the chimney/fistcrack higher up easier to protect.

Comments: Jordan...
In 2007 I climbed there from the end of November through mid December. We had a few spells of poor weather that forced us back to town, but I remember it being good enough to climb a lot.

Comments: If you are here later season, or when the B-S Col is in poor shape, be sure to look for the rappel station near the base that will take you straight down to the glacier below. Two single rope rappels should do it.

Comments: It would seem that the picture in the Atkinson/Piche guide is a bit off. It shows a traverse at the top of pitch two. Instead go up and right to the dihedral, then straight up on pitch two to the "flake" belay, a giant slung flake or horn. Then on pitch three's start, move right, back towards the "corner" and up to the "alcove" belay, also with a slung horn.

Overall an excellent route. Route finding challenges can be had on first four pitches, but protection is readily available. Granite ... more >>

Comments: The plaque at the base calls this line "the throwdown". Great pitch too.

Comments: Climbed this the other day. One of the anchor bolts at the top is a bit loose. A number four Camalot with a long sling could easily back up the anchor if you are inclined.

Comments: I drove up the approach road today (March 24, 2014) and was able to take a stock pickup truck to within a 15 minute walk of where the trail leaves the wash. At this point the was was blocked with a, what was for me, an impassable boulder. Wasn't too bad, just had to drive slow, but it was still quicker than walking.

Comments: Hey all,

Sorry this isn't a timely reply. Folks, it is just climbing. I specifically stated what we did in the route description. I think my posting is accurate in that it states in what style we climbed it. I am aware of the varying interpretations of the aid climbing rating system and that is why I clarified our use. Eggman, the comment "went free by pulling on gear" is in reference to the departed alpinist Bjørn-Eivind Årtun.

It is just climbing. Go have fun, respect the rock and... more >>

Comments: Yes, rappel from a two bolt anchor with chains. I believe that one rope will get you down... a seventy meter definitely will.

Comments: This area should probably be under the Capitol Gorge area as opposed to its own area.

Comments: George

Cathedral Valley is indeed spectacular. Unfortunately it is off limits to climbing. From the close non-climbing inspection I have done of it is indeed similar to the Fisher Towers. Folks may have climbed on it prior to its closure (I am unsure of when it was officially closed). There are very similar towers further east (and out of the Park) along the northern edge of the Moroni Slopes and near Salt Wash mountainproject.com/v/the-muds...

Comments: The park boundary here seems to be marked with a fence. There is a gate in the fence down low. Higher toward the wingate the fence is in poorer condition, but it can serve as a good indicator of where to bolt and where not to bolt.

Comments: Rappel/anchor bolts are bomber up through the top of pitch six on the Original Variation. Top of pitch seven is one drilled angle and one star drive with Leeper hanger. The protection bolts were all bomber star drives with Leeper hangers.
